I have two GMail accounts, one personal and one for business use. Both of my accounts start with my real name but end up in different domains. First one ends with @gmai.com and the second one ends with @spinfire.fi

Now here is a screenshot of the email application. Which one of the email accounts is my personal and which one is the business one?


Improvement idea: use eliding and show the domain too if two or more email accounts start with the same character sequence otherwise it is impossible to know which account is which. Alternatively, the icon before the account name could be customized.

Or allow user to name their account after creation. Then you could have something like "Work" and "Personal" -accounts in that list.

I have the same problem, but with song titles! I guess that means Jolla should come up with a generic solution to this problem?

You can name your accounts as you like.

Just go to Settings -> Accounts and select the account you want to edit. The line named "Account information" is editable text field. What you fill in here will be shown as account name in the Mail app.

Whoaah... didn't realize that was editable field. No problem then. Thanks for the tip.
