    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!

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Fix the ******* Contacts list! Can't add/delete/edit people! COME THE **** ON! WHY DID YOU GET RID OF THAT FEATURE ********!

    YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! I CAN'T ADD OR DELETE OR EDIT NAMES IN THE ALLEGED "IMPROVED" YAHOO MAIL! You must really be taking the right steps to force people to gmail. Completely unacceptable that I cannot edit or add contacts like before. ******* unacceptable and I'm not a swearing person. I click on the little Address Book on the side and it takes me to the "classic" version BUT those edits are not syncing with the "new" version. **** **** ******** *******!
