Prefix in my email name / from field

Ok.. a few years ago others told me I was sending spam from my email account so I put in the name - could be spam if coming from this address..

Here is the probelm.. sending from desktop no problem.. but from mobile phone or tablet.. using the yahoo app that still shows up before my name.

May be spam if coming from this address.

I find no where to change this in the desk top app or on the mobile app.

The name in the accounts and email screen outgoing email all says my name correctly.. but sending from mobile still says - may be spam if coming from this email address.

 

Any ideas? Or does a phone number exist to actually call and talk to a human at Yahoo?

Only the Yahoo Mail app uses the same sending name as the computer does. If you are using a non Yahoo email program you have to change it in its settings.

Make sure your phone and email are current. There is no way to verify or recover an account without them.
