Default sending account not working properly
Unders Settings > Accounts > Default Sending Account
I have the account selected I want to send to but today it stopped using that account when I click "Compose" or even when replying to messages.
Your engineer might be telling you it's fixed but nothing has changed at this end.
my default send as does not work anymore -was working find for years i have checked the setting and everything is correct but default is not selected by default, i have to always select from the drop down
This is infuriatingly annoying — PLEASE FIX ASAP. I'm a paid Yahoo Mail subscriber annoyed by this and many other bugs and limitations that have appeared lately.
This has been well documented, yet Yahoo mail keeps reverting to an error where the default sending address settings will not work. Even when saved to the correct default sending address (in my case not my original email but a secondary one).....it will work for a while, then start only sending from the wrong email. Using settings to try to change it back won't work. YAHOO, PLEASE FIX THIS PERMANENTLY, COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My emails are not sending from my Default Sending Account which is my Extra Email Address even though I've set it up to. It was previously.
In my profile, I have my Extra Email adress as my Default Sending Account. However, when I am composing an e-mail, it is not working. This has been working up until the last week or so. It is broken.
Great news! Our engineering team has notified us that this has been resolved. We really appreciate your patience while worked to resolve this. Thank you!

Problem still exists -- my "Default sending account" setting is ignored in favor of the Yahoo email address; I even unmerged my ATT account from Yahoo and the problem is still there !!
Why is this problem being ignored? Will be switching to cable company if this isn't fixed. I do not want to keep having to remember to select my default email address, which defeats the purpose of it being the default!!! Come on Yahoo/AT&T. Get it together!
This problem has been driving me NUTS for awhile now!!! Especially when I'm quickly sending an email and "forget" to "choose" my default sender address. I never used the yahoo address & don't want people to start using/responding to me with it....very frustrating!!!
I have the same problem. My default adress for composing message is not set correctly despite the choice i made in settings... That's quite annoying...

Contact addresses DO NOT show when attempting to forward emails, or Composing emails!
Not fixed in ad free mail/plus. Please fix.
This is not working.
Can someone with Yahoo! provide an update here? Mine has been doing this for at least a month.
GREAT BAD NEWS : it works properly for a few hours, and went back to the former mess. That occured a few days ago, I hoped that the job would be done again quickly, but no... Come on Yahoo !
As of 11/19/14 this problem is still not fixed. What the heck? I have a business to run and this is really a problem.

It is not fixed at all. Does Yahoo have any real developers left ...or just corporate figure heads?

Thank you for the message and your service.

It is not fixed. I want my default sending email to be my default sending email. This worked for years. Now, all of the sudden, I must manually select the default sending email every single time I wish to send a message--you insist that I use the primary. You have made the primary the default, overriding our designated preference.
