How do I change the username of an email account on the Galaxy S3?

My email provider (Amenworld) sold all their email and web business to Namesco.

Amenworld used name@domain as the format for the email account - i.e. identical to the format for an email address. Namesco, for their low end email users use just domain. i.e the characters after the @ sign. e.g. business.co.uk. They then direct all mail to the single account for that user. info@business.co.uk and john.smith@business.co.uk all end up in the account business.co.uk.

You can try installing both old and new emails so you are able to preserve even the old ones. If you prefer to put all content into one account eventually, you can do so by moving onto folders.
