Change the name that appears on my outgoing emails
There is no way for me to change the name on the outgoing emails from our Yahoo Small Business account. I've tried all of the ways that the support team have given me, which look like they work until I send an email and the recipient still thinks they are talking with my boss instead of me. Solutions on the support site either don't work (https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Yahoo-Help-Community/ct-p/english), or are broken links (https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Tips-and-tricks/Sent-emails-show-wrong-name-in-Yahoo-Mail/td-p/445701/jump-to/first-unread-message). I'm pretty disappointed in this service that as far as i know we are paying $70 a year for.
You can update your sending name in Yahoo Mail, by going to Settings-More settings-Mailboxes, then click your account and then edit the ‘’Your name’’ section.

When an account last name is updated it should update the name on outgoing emails. Signature and account are new last name.

I have changed my name on the system of Yahoo Email to in English (almost 15 years ago). Since then, my name is shown in English on my email homepage. However, for others' email or on the section of "Sent" of my email, ê¹ì ì§ (firstname.lastname@example.org) is showed. How can "ê¹ì ì§" be a name???
I'm not sure how to fix it. It is a big problem for me as some people think my email is a scam or bug etc.

Instructions for how to change account name, sending name, nickname on email account don't work. I have an OLD nickname associated with my account that doesn't show up anywhere, but it's there when I send or receive replies back. Not there when I compose however!

Yahoo mail shows Yahoo Mailing versus the actual email that is sending it. My emails get ignored or go to spam since people can't tell emails are from me. This is a business email so it is extremely annoying to answer questions why it shows like this. I don't know the answer.

You should have the option to change the outgoing name associated with your email account so when you get married, you don’t have to set up a new account. Or allow the merging of 2 accounts. My name says it changed when I look at it, however when people receive my messages it still has my maiden name.

I could not change my sending name. Why it is so difficult.
When receiver check from: part my name seems **. I would like to revise it. How can I revise it? Could you please help me out?

I changed it in the system for my email a long time ago. People make out checks to the wrong person. I have become a guest speaker for a zoom meeting under my old name. It does not matter how many times I tell people my real name, they want to use the one that comes up on my email. Why can't you change it. Why do I have to pay for support to change it. You would think you could change it by now. It has only been 12 years.

When i send an email it writes Yahoo Mail and not my email account and my recipients do not open the mail because they think is spam. What can i do to fix that??
I just received an email for a seller asking me to leave feedback. My actual real name appeared in the salutation instead of just my login ID. This constitutes an INVASION OF PRIVACY. Fix this problem NOW!!!!!!

I WANT THE MESSAGES to SAY ROSE not JOHN. Where do I do this?
