How to change the display name on your TELUS email

Instructions to change your display name

Every email you send has a “display name” that accompanies each email, which is displayed when your message is received. For example, emails will show as being sent from David Smith (display name) instead of DSmith (username) or DSmith@telus.net (email address).

You can use these steps to change how your messages are displayed. For example, a shortened version of your name, such as “Dave” instead of “David”.

Important
: You can’t change your name from the Gmail app on your mobile device.
