How To Change From Name in AOL

Dear Computer Lady,

One of my AOL email names shows my name as p (only) when I send email.

AOL support/help site has been of no help to me.

Hoping you can help me.

Thank you, Kathryn


Dear Kathryn,

All you need to do is make a change in your AOL settings. Here is how:

1. Go to and click on the “Mail” icon.

2. Sign in to your AOL email account with your user name and password.

3. Click on “Settings” in the upper-right corner of your screen.

4. Click on “Compose” in the left hand column.

5. Find the “Display Name” section, and change P to whatever you want to be displayed when you send an email.

6. Scroll down and click the “Save” button at the bottom of the page.

This should fix your problem.
