    The Sending Name for the account can only be changed from the desktop web version of Yahoo Mail, and not from a mobile device. Follow these steps below to change it.
     
    In New Mail:
    1. Sign in to Yahoo Mail.
    2. Mouse over the Settings menu icon (Gear) | select More Settings.
    3. Click Mailboxes.
    4. Click on the Yahoo email account.
    5. Enter a new name in the “Your Name” field.
    6. Click Save.

    Keep in mind that other apps may have their own settings for your Sending Name such as the default Mail app on an iPhone or Android. Whatever is in place there will override what’s set up on the Yahoo account. If the wrong name appears on your emails after following the steps above, double-check the settings in the app you’re using.

    Thank you!

  3. Stop auto add contacts

    You must stop auto add for every email I receive or send. I have over 5000 contacts and need to turn that function off and delete most of them. Please fix this ASAP!

    Don’t waste time adding new recipients to your Yahoo Contacts. Let Yahoo Mail do it for you automatically.

    In Yahoo Mail, mouse over the Settings menu icon Small gear icon | select Settings.
    Click Writing email.
    Select Automatically add new recipients to Contacts.
    - You can deselect this option if you change your mind.
    Click Save.

  5. Contacts. I have tried using the new icon for contacts but nothing will open. I really need to see my contact list and am unable.

    I am unable to get to my contacts. Like others the new contact icon doesn't work and your answers to access the info somewhere else either don't answer the question about contacts or don't open at all. I really need to search through my contact list. It is the only way to find someone.

  6. Correcting phone number of mail recipients

    When mousing over names in the distribution list of an email in the Inbox, a contact card is show. The help files say to mouse over the Options menu (...) but it doesn't exist, so there's no way to update the incorrect information. Please either update the Help Info to correctly show how to update contact info or put the Options menu back on the Contact Card.

  14. Adding New Contacts

    Why is it hard to add a contact from an email? It should be one of the main basic uses with the email. I search two different sites and they did not work for me. I should not have to type out the persons name, number, and email to add a contact when it is right there when I scroll my mouse over the name. Why is this not a common sense and user friendly aspect of the email?

  17. contacts only mine

    Only my own contacts should show in my Contact list, NOT those of other Yahoo accounts I use! If available ought to be a setting I can turn off. I want ONLY MY OWN CONTACTS available.

    Only the contacts for your account show in the address book. Any ones you don’t recognize may have been synced from your phone or other device you use to access Yahoo.

  19. Allow me to manage my contacts! When I DELETE email contacts I want them to STAY deleted!!

    I have over 1,000 email contacts. I use about 100 of those. I have deleted the ones I don't use many many times and they continue to return. Every Craig's List Crazy, people I haven't contacted in many years - they all keep returning to my active Contacts list.

    This is usually due to a syncing issue with another device that accesses the account, like a smartphone. Remove the account there, delete the duplicate/unneeded contacts, and then re-add the account.
