My name change does not reflect in sent mail
Regardless of what I do, my name will not change on outgoing mail
Thank you for your feedback.
To change the sending name in Yahoo Mail, please follow these instructions:
Please note: Some third-party apps have their own sending name setting, which bypasses the Yahoo Mail setting. If the app you're using attaches a different name than the one saved in your Yahoo Mail settings, contact the manufacturer of the app for assistance.

Is this bug ever going to be fixed? I have updated my firstname, surname and preferred name, but my outgoing emails display the old name.
Your instructions (https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN28072.html) are most unhelpful, in particular:
"Please note: Some third-party apps have their own sending name setting, which bypasses the Yahoo Mail setting. If the app you're using attaches a different name than the one saved in your Yahoo Mail settings, contact the manufacturer of the app for assistance."
>>> I BELIEVE THE MANUFACTURER IN THIS CASE IS YOURSELVES??? SO PLEASE COULD YOU ASSIST AND FIX! THANK YOU.

I cannot change it either, even though I have changed it before. It is annoying and embarrassing! It shows my correct legal name on my end, just not when I send emails.

I am also suffering for this same reason. I have changed my name and it does not reflect on the outgoing emails. It's quite frustrating and it isn't professional. Please fix this HUGE issue.

The link given doesn’t work. How do we change the name that shows on sent emails? I’m divorced and really am sick of my married name showing.

I was just looking to provide feedback on this and found this post. So annoying- when i go into my account, it has my name correct, but when i email it has an old name.
Becky Gibson commented
Agree!! This needs to be fixed. I am having the same issue.
Kristin Isaacs commented
YES! Fix this! Why is it so dang hard?
Ashley Diaz commented
I am having the same issue, where Ive updated my name in the Account Settings, but it does not reflect on the email name stamp when people receive emails from me. It is very confusing to those recipients who are official and important, where my identity needs to match my email address!!! I really wish they would correct this!
Amanda Lane commented
Please fix whatever is wrong. I've been dealing with this for years as have many people. We update our name under the account info section but the outgoing emails still reflect our old last names. I do not want to just create a new account as I have all my important information going to this email and junk to other emails so I don't need another. Please fix.

There is no option to change your name how it looks for the receiver of hte email.

please change my name as it ought to be. When sending a professional mail it looks fraudulent.

I have been divorced for 8 years. I changed my last name on my account to KING, but my sent emails are still showing my old last name NEIGHBORS. I need this fixed as soon as possible. thank you

It says my correct name in setting, but when I send emails it sends my previous name. Going to have to swap providers
