    is it possible to rename a Gmail Account to other than the email address? I have to gmail accounts setup on my droid, one for "work" and one for "personal". I would like to name that way. thank you.

    Not sure you can do that. Long pressing on them does nothing.

    You can maybe use filters to have your personal email go into one folder and work into another. If I understand what you are wanting to do. Try reading up on it here:
