Is there a way to add a display-name to email addresses? I'd love to be able to have, for example "Bob" <[email protected]>

At the moment it seems there's nothing beyond a strict <[email protected]> which defaults to "<[email protected]>" <[email protected]> or "codegod" <[email protected]> or worse "" <[email protected]>, depending on the receiving application/webmail system.

There doesn't appear to be any fields to achieve this in the "Create An Email Account" screen (or elsewhere!)

Apologies if this is covered somewhere -- I searched the docs, knowledgebase, and forums before posting!

Hey there! You can make this change inside webmail for the specific address, but you're correct that it is not part of the email account creation process. More details on that can be found here:
