Preliminary information

Preliminary information

Before going into detail on how to correct an email address , let me make some clarifications. First of all, let’s clarify that it is not possible, to all intents and purposes, to change the email address once it has been created. However, as also explained in the introduction of the guide, there are several solutions that allow in some way to “correct” an existing address.

For example, it is possible to change the name associated with the ‘account , that is the name that appears as the sender to the recipients of the emails; secondly, it is possible to create aliases , that is, alternative email addresses that still refer to the primary email address (so each email addressed to the alias is automatically forwarded to the main account); as a last resort, you can create a new email address and, if desired, set up automatic forwarding of mail from the old account. For all the details, read on.

How to correct an email address in Gmail

< strong> Gmail , the popular e-mail service provided by Google, includes some integrated features that can “correct” an email address : let’s see which ones and how to use them.

Change name associated with account

As already mentioned, you can change the name associated with the Gmail account you usually use in a few simple steps: remember that the following procedure cannot be performed via the Gmail app for Android or for iOS / iPadOS, but only through the web version of the service.

So open the browser you use usually to browse the Internet on your computer (eg. Chrome or Safari ), connect to Gmail , and, if necessary, enter your credentials to be able to access it. Once logged in, click on the gear icon , present at the top right, then press the View all settings button, go to the Account tab and import and, in the Send message as section, click on the Edit information option.

On the page that opens, you can enter an alternative name that you prefer to be displayed as the sender when you deliver an e-mail message to other people, by filling in the field empty under the name currently in use, then placing the check mark on the left and finally clicking on the Save changes button located at the bottom right.

Note: it may happen that an error message such as “This setting cannot be changed for your account” appears on two occasions: the first is that you have already changed your name before and in a too short a time span from the present moment; the second, on the other hand, occurs if you are using a G-Suite account , Google’s paid online suite, and the administrator has not allowed the possibility of changing the name. < / p>

Create aliases

Creating an alias in Gmail, or an alternative address associated with the main account, is quite simple: they can be created automatically by inserting [] , the + sign followed by a word of your choice, before the @ sign.

For example, you can provide something like [yourname] or [thunder me] to whoever has to send you an e-mail message or to register for an online service and you will still receive the emails to your main Gmail address.
