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.

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.
Alli Oluwatoyin commented
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
Simera Crawford commented
I created an alias email address, and somehow it is associated with the name Isadora Reid, which is not my name. My name is Simera Crawford, and I can't seem to change that name which I have no idea how it got attached to my alias address. However, the emails from the alias address still comes to my inbox associated with the original email after I did a test, and I can still sign-in with the alias address... but Isadora Reid's name must go!

I have changed my name on my account and it shows update on my end, but all my recipients still show email being sent with my old last name
Kathleen Young commented
It says my CORRECT last name in the settings when I change my profile; when I send emails it sends my previous name
Beth Weise commented
Change my last name on account, Have been trying over & over still not updated
Ron M Babiuk commented
Why is it that when I changed my name to Ron M (last name), the one that appears on people's emails when I send an email to them is still the old name of just Ron (last name)? If I change the name shouldn't the public name also change? I need it to say Ron M (last name).

Have it automatically update your information for outgoing email. Is this a clitch? It's concerning.
