You can't edit the name while you have Outlook open, you have to go through the control panel.

  1. Close Outlook
  2. Go to Control Panel --> Mail
  3. Click Email Accounts button
  4. Now you should be able to go through the standard steps of add/change email account and it shouldn't be grayed out anymore
