Name change on sender

Re: Name change on sender

If you send an email from the account to yourself, does the wrong sending name appear there as well? If a sender has a different name on their end for your address, this will overrule anything you have set on your end.

Yes, if I send an email to myself, when I type my address appears the correct name. But when I receive it appears the wrong one as a sender.

I sent a test email from the account to itself and it seems to match what's listed as your Sending Name in your Mail settings. Is there a specific email in your mailbox where you're seeing a different name?

So let me be more clear. My address is **Username Protected**@yahoo.com. The name, that I want to appear when I send an email to someone is Oana Antohi (which is also the name that appears in my settings and everywhere I made the changes). Insteed of that appears my old name Alazaroaie Oana, everytime when I send a new mail to anybody, including me.

Ok, so it looks like you just need to change the Sending Name on your account. I went ahead and took care of it for you.

I already have changed my name. It still appears the old wrong name when I send a new mail.

It looks like you changed the account description but not the sending name. It should be all set now. Can you test it out to make sure it looks good on your end?

Trust me when I tell you that my old name appears. I just test it. I could send you a mail just to see it for yourself, but I don't have a mail address.

I just looked at the mailbox and I see a message showing the "Oana Antohi" name.If you're not sending from the web, you may need to edit the settings in the app you are using separately. Where are you seeing it differently? Can you give a specific example?
