Create an extra email address - Email alias missing.

Hi!,

 i'm trying to create an extra email address - https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN6214.html - from New Mail.

 

There is no Email alias 

 

Any ideas; I don't have an alias already although I have a gmail.com in the list? 

 

TA!, Neil

You currently can't create Email aliases in New Mail. You can still create Disposable email addresses, though.

I think what he and I are both experiencing is that the "Email Alias" heading is simply not present as you see it on your screen. There is nothing on our screen that says 'email alias' or 'extra email address', either in the new format or classic. It is gone entirely.

@ninety,

At this time you can only add a mailbox in New Mail. Either from Outlook, Google, or AOL.

Odd, don't remember flagging your reply a the resolution?

 

Anyway, I wish it was...(under the mailbox settings). If I could insert an image (how'd ya do that?) I'd include the screen shot I have. I have the Add Mailbox button & next, underneath, Send-only email addresses.

@ninety

Images can only be inserted by select members. It is possible that Yahoo is working on the option and it shows up for some and not others. Since I already have one I have not clicked the link to see if it works.
