    Not great at IT and confused with different email address and name?!
    I have had a mac and iphone for a while, my other half has now got an iphone and an ipad - when trying to use his email address on my mac it comes up with 'email sent from (my name) but using his email address' How can we change it so his mail sent from his account says its from him?

    On your (or his) iPhone:

    Go to Settings
    Scroll down to Mail, contacts, calendars
    Click on the mail account you want to rename
    At the top, click Account
    In the Name field, remove your name and put his name.

    Should do it for you.
