Do you need to change the way that your name appears in the Inbox of people receiving your emails? Here’s how you can change the FROM field.

But before that, why is this important?

Having a From field that readers recognize makes your email stand out from other emails. It increases the chances that your email will be opened but… changing it could also result in your Outlook Emails not getting opened.

If you’ve decided you are going to change the From line…

  • In Outlook 2010, click File > Account Settings.
    In Outlook 2007, click Tools > Account Settings.
    In Outlook 2003, click Tools > E-mail Accounts > select View or change existing email accounts > click Next
  • Select an email account from the list and click Change.
  • Make the change in the Your Name field.


  • Click Next. (Wait for Outlook to do some tests)
  • Click Finish.
