I assume that you mean what the recipient sees as your name when you send an email. How is your v card set up in the contacts app? However your contact name is set up in the contacts app is what the recipient will see when you send an email.

I'm new to this so bear withe me...what do u mean by v card in contacts app?

The information that you have setup as your information in the contacts app. Do you have yourself listed in the contacts apps?
What are you actually trying to change in your "seen" email address or name.

Are you talking about your signature within the email? If so, you change that in your mail app.
If you are talking about your email address then that is changed within your email settings in Yahoo, Gmail, etc..

Ok when I sent an e mail the name that it shows up in the recipients mail box is not the name I want them to see. So how do I change this?

That is what I thought you meant but I wanted to be sure.
Are you listed in the contacts app on the iPad? If you are, then see how you appear in the contacts app.
For instance - if you have yourself listed as Joe Blow in the contacts app - if that is in the Name Field - when you use your contact info in the mail app - you should be seen as Joe Blow by the email recipient.

For non-Exchange accounts:
- Settings/ Mail/ (account name)/ Account > then change the "Name" entry, which is what recipients see you as.
If you have yourself in your own Contacts, that may override what the recipient sees.

That's a good idea and I hope it will work for the OP - My full name is what all of my email recipients see no matter which of my 4 email accounts I use. One is a POP account and my name is the name in the entry.
But I also list my full name with all 4 of my email accounts in the contacts app.

My full name is in my Contacts, and includes all my e-mail accounts. I have a Yahoo account that I use for online purchases, and I've set my Yahoo account on my iPhone to only include my initials. When I send a message from my Yahoo account to another account (even my own, which is in my Contacts) it comes in with just my initials.
My main e-mail is a GMail account set up as Exchnage, but I have another GMail account set up as a "regular" GMail account on my iPhone. That behaves just as my Yahoo account does, though I don't know how other account types behave.

I have the same problem. However, when I go into
Settings/ Mail/ (account name)/ Account
the field where my name is in can't be changed, but it is shown in light grey. Does anybody have a clue how I can change that name? All the e-mails that I send with my computer show the wrong name, while the e-mails from my iPhone are correct. I have checked the iCloud settings and they are all correct.
