@meadow_jersey:  I thought I heard of a way to just rename your account through Google? Hopefully other bees will ahve some answers.

I don’t have an android. I have an iPhone. I was able to have multiple email addresses on my phone ‘s program…my married email, maiden email, work email, etc.  Is it possible to do this?

It seems like what you’ve thought about doing with the syncing should work though. If it messes up, would it be possible to undo the syncing and take it into a store ofwhatever service provider you have and ask them to do it.  Seems like they should know since people change email addresses frequently and would need assistance. 

Good luck!  And it’s moments like these that make me realize why we women get stuck changing our names. No way in hell my DH would have jumped through all the hoops I did to change my name.

@meadow_jersey:  if you’ve set up an account with your new name, why would you still be telling people the email with your maiden name? 

I just did this (but with an iPhone). I forwarded all the email from my maiden name account to my married name account. Deleted the maiden name account from the mail settings folder on my phone and added the married name account. There was no problem at all.

@meadow_jersey:  Just go to Settings > Accounts > add account.  You’ll have to switch between mailboxes in the Gmail app, but I think things like calendar just overlap.  You don’t have to turn off sync and all of that.  You can have multiple Google accounts on your phone active.
