How do I change the name of Outlook Today. Not "Outlook Today", but the name
of the account displayed. I can't change it in Properties.

What type of email account do you have? The name can't be changed for
Exchange and outlook connector. you can change the display name of the pst
by right clicking on the folder and choosing properties, advanced.

It is a Windows Live account and a Comcast account both in the same Data
File.

Unfortunately, I can't go to that folder because of that, I guess. I just
want it to say Email or Mail.

Thank you very much.

Outlook Today doesn't really display an account name, although in some cases
it may appear that way. It displays the data store name.
