From Gmail?

Hi, Blackberry Curve here.  I have my Gmail account set up on my BBerry, and also my work e-mail account.

 

Now if I log into Gmail from my PC and send an E-mail to my work E-mail, I receive it on my Blackberry under the Messages icon, which is good, but it says from 'gmail' - instead of saying from 'my_name_here'.  Any idea why this could be?  Although, if I put the cursor on 'gmail' and let it sit for a second, it WILL actually display my gmail address from which i sent the email from.

 

Now in my Gmail account settings, I have it set so that people see my name when they receive E-mails from me - instead of my bare email address.

Re: From Gmail?

do you have your gmail address saved under BlackBerry contacts by the name 'Gmail'?
