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.

Unable to update/change password!

You can change name, gender, and nicknames, but not birthdate.
In my case it's displaying the birthdate of my father. It's probably a result of this address once being an SBC Global email as part of a family package, a long time ago.

Although I changed my name and surname, I still appear as Sevgi Peker in the e-mails I send. I request that it be changed to Sevgi Vermisli immediately.

I cannot get into changing my password from the Account Security page! How can I change my password?
Ferguson Briana commented
How about having the instructions on how to create a password under help match the actual steps you follow online so you are not forced to call the supreme number to pay for service.

i need you to arrest anyone in my email plus anyone who changed my birthday to september 9 th in my email when it is the 28th. i need you to monitor sites correctly by not being in the persons site but looking at the software program and that is the job not looking at peoples email unless they request you to look at it but you have to let them know you are looking at the site because you are investing it because someone sent some mail into the site and you need information because what they were doing was a crime. the person investigating your site has to tell you who they are in person by signing contracts.if you are sending them mail and you wait till they respond to the email the response they give is what you must listen to when it is good and for that person who has their legal name on the website and email.

Russell Nadin commented
The option to change my password is completely missing from the Account Security page of yahoo even though the help guide directs me there. It is not that I can't find it, it really is gone.
This should be a huge security priority for Yahoo but the comments go back weeks.

Did you ever find out an answer to this? I have the same problem, changed my name yet the old name still shows to all those I email.

password change is ridiculous !!
Margaret Moser commented
I have spent an hour trying to change my password because of an intruder where I gave my password. I thought they were Apple, but they were a fraud. I still cannot change my password. Why is it so hard. I am signed in and now it says to sign in. I have had it with Yahoo and will go to Gmail if this continues.

Yesterday my another yahoo account has been deleted or deactivated without any notice or intimation to me
suddenly if you remove the account overnight, how can we save our clients files, other communications etc and how can be change our mail Id with different authorities and with govt dep. college etc.
one suggetion give the opportunity to user before deleting any user name or account
its very essential because of the people save or keep documents on mail and if someone mail is deleted which have been use for many years its great loss to user and no one will to open account in yahoo again

I want to remove Silvia Maier from my email Account This is a Female's name and I am a male
NOSA Whyte Okunkpolor commented
Please remove Silvia Maier from my name. It causes me embarrassment anytime I send me. In most cases they usually demand for my document to know who owns the mail. My email was only of the first email when normal people have no access to email It was opened from my ex- wife through her office .Her name silvua out immediately I send any mail. Please remove this name from my account I don't want to remove the mail because it has gone a long way . Please do me this favour.

When you change your name is the personal info in your account it doesn't ACTUALLY change your name on the email. I've had this email address for almost 20 years but I've been married for half of that and it is STILL sending my emails out from my maiden name. I'm so irritated about it now I may just shut down my yahoo emails. It's absurd.
