documentation suggests. There is no place to change this in GOA
currently. You can edit it at ~/.config/goa-1.0/accounts.conf with
goa-daemon not running. Briefly looking around, the module also uses
this PresentationIdentity as an e-mail address in case of the 
Web Services accounts configured in GOA, which doesn't feel right.

account name in the evolution will be kept in sync with the account
name in the GOA (thus it'll be the GOA responsibility to allow name
