What does "shows as iMac" mean? Does it not show your Gmail address as from? Under General->Mail, Contacts, Calendars what is the Default Account set to?

It was fairly basic, when I went into; settings; mail, contacts, calendars option... and under accounts I see gmail...under accounts your email address should show and if you click on it you can change all your gmail account information such as name.

I did a test email to make sure and it was successful.
