what are the steps in correcting a name within the From area of an email sent from a Kindle?
Posted on 2013-12-21
Hello and Good Evening Everyone,
I am in the process of helping a friend correct several setup issues going on from a Kindle given to her by me as a Christmas present. One of a few issues surrounds emails sent from her Kindle. For example, I received an email from her tonight which has my name in both, the From and To areas. However, the addresses were correct though which of course allowed me to receive her message. At any rate, I am assuming I can possibly correct this issue remotely by logging into my Amazon account because I was able to change the name of the Kindle from George's Kindle to Kathy's Kindle. But, I am unsure on how to reconfigure the name in the From area of the Kindle to change from George Martin to Kathy Davis. If someone could outline the steps or procedures for carrying out this task, it will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much in advance for any help given on this matter. To be perfectly honest, I had no idea any of these things would happen when I bought the Kindle from Amazon as a present to give to her. I do think other people need to know about this issue when buying a Kindle as a present for someone because it does present some security issues. Even my Amazon debit card information popped up when she made a purchage earlier today on the Kindle. I will need help correcting that issue as well which I will create a new open post for in hopes of resolving that too.
