I was given a business email address powered by yahoo. I was instructed by the yahoo setup guide to link it to an existing account, so I attatched it to a personal account. However, I am unable to change the Settings->Writing Emails-> "default sending account" to the new address, because the only account option shown is the personal address. I have to remember to manually change the address every single email I send and sometimes end up sending the email from my personal account address. I need to fix the default address chosen when composing new emails.

Hi @nothankyou - Have you gone ahead and tried to re-add the business email address as a send only address underneath where you can choose the default addresses in Settings? If so, get back to me and I can look into this further for you.
I have tried that a couple times, yes. The message "Your email *workemailname*@*workaddress*.com already exists."
I have a similar issue. I can choose different sender addresses from the dropdown "From" field when I compose an email, but if I try to set any of these as a default Sender address, it will not stick if I try to save that setting. I hope Yahoo will fix this soon!
