I would like to change name that recipients see in emails they receive from me. Right now, when I email, they see the name of my mailbox which is "info". I would like to personalized it with my name.

This is a bit of a guess, but do you have your own address with your name on it in your address book? I think that's where the computer gets the options from.

I think Drew may have the answer if you use roundcube to send.
 If you are in community support search for How do I change the name displayed in the from field in Roundcube?  but essentially he says 
1) Click Settings
2) Click identities
3) Click on the identity. that lights it up.
4) Enter the desired content in the Display name field.
well done Drew.
