Windows 10: Mail not showing "send mail as" name for gmail accounts

    Mail not showing "send mail as" name for gmail accounts

    I use two gmail accounts and each has a "send mail as" name specified, meaning when I send an e-mail, the recipient will see the sender as being the name I specified, rather than just my e-mail address.

    When I send mail from gmail, this works, but when I send mail from gmail via Mail it always just shows the e-mail address, not the name.

    On the other hand, all hotmail accounts I use show the name fine.

    I checked in manage accounts->change mailbox sync settings and both accounts have "send your messages using this name" specified correctly, but the name still doesn't show.

    Anyone know how to fix this?
