We’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue the Yahoo Communities effective Jan 24, 2019.

Be assured you will still be able to find answers to your Yahoo product and app questions on the Yahoo Help website (https://help.yahoo.com). In addition, you’ll be able to find the Yahoo Community moderators on Twitter, responding from our many handles including @YahooCare and @YahooFantasyCC.

If you ever need help with your Yahoo accounts, try Yahoo Account Pro for 24/7 live phone support.

Why is sent from name changing

When checking email, certain emails from Facebook and Twitter are changing the sent from name to the name of an email I often click on, then changing back to actual name in front of my eyes. Why is this happening?

Does this happen when checking your mail on mail.yahoo.com on a browser?
