How to rename an e-mail account

So, I just had to delete and reinstall my Gmail account (sits alongside my corporate).  Previously, I'd renamed the account displayed from "myverylongnamename@gmail.com" to just Gmail.  But now I can't for the life of me see where to do that.  Could that have perhaps been in the older version of the Desktop software?    Is there a way to do that on the device?

Re: How to rename an e-mail account

Go to Setup > Email Accounts > Internet Mail Accounts > enter the user name and password (if required). Now highlight the email ID that your want to edit and select Edit from Menu. Change the text under Email Account Name as desired by you. Then click Menu and select Save.

Awesome, thanks!  I looked at that screen several times and missed it.
