In the Send your messages using this name field, enter the name you would like to have displayed to your recipients. You will most likely use your full name but you are free to enter anything you wish such as your company name or a short description of the account if it serves a special purpose.

Finally click Sign in. Mail will detect the rest of the settings for you.
