Changing "From" Name That Appears in Gmail Emails Sent via Make

Hi there,

I’m looking to send a few emails out through my gmail account via Make. However, when I test the email the name that appears in my inbox is “hello” which is the first word of the email address it is being sent from.

I’m wondering if there is a way to change that to either be what it is in my Gmail account? or to something custom?

Image attached FYI.

Thanks in advance!

When the email comes through, it doesn’t show the normal From Name as it is when emails are sent directly from Gmail. It seems to default to the name part of the email address (i.e. “hello” when the email address is I’m assuming there’s no way around this?

Is this still not possible? I’m struggling with the same issue.

Hi @stratgermanicus ,

I gave this answer to the same question.
This ensures that anyone’s e-mail address cannot be used to send an e-mail.
