Re: My sending name doesnot change

Change Sending Name or Reply-To Address

 

The following works with the mail website and the Yahoo mail app. Any other mail program or app stores the information in its own settings.

 

  • Hover over the far right gear icon in Yahoo Mail and then click "settings" or "more settings".

  • Click "accounts" or "mailboxes" in left column.

  • Click on the primary address.

  • Fill in the name or reply-to fields.

  • The name can be blank and then only the email address will appear.

  • Click "save" at the bottom of the page.

  • There will be a separate setting on a mobile device.

  • If you are using New mail there is a shortcut to get to mailboxes. Hover over the account name at the top of the left column and click the gear that appears.

 

Note that this will just change the sending name or reply-to. If a correspondent already has an old name or address it will still appear if they send a new email and not a reply. They must change it in their address book and their contact cards. Contact cards are what appear when hovering over a FROM or TO address. Click the 3 dots in the lower left to change it.

Feel free to reply if my question or answer is not clear. Include @Barkley_Hound in the post.
