Default webmail problem

why is it that none of the webmail clients import the correct name and email address settings, you have to manually go in and change it through the webmail's preferences, for some clients this seems impossible, is there a work around for this
?!

The webmail clients are external programs. They simply do not know any settings for ISPConfig.

You can e.g. write a plugin for the webmail application of your choice to import the data.

You enter the information yourself during login.

The application does not know the email address. You posted that already in your first post

On the ISPConfig.org Downloads page. But there are no such plugins.

It's the same for desktop email clients. You have to fill in the correct settings there as well in the account settings.
