Hello,

To change the real name displayed in the From: line when you send an email using Yahoo mail please follow these steps:

  • If you are not using Yahoo Classic, switch to Yahoo Classic mode. (Direct link- http://us.mg1.mail.yahoo.com/dc/optout?script=no)
  • Click Options near the top right of the screen and select Mail Options
  • Click the General Preferences link under Account Management
  • In the Name and Email section change the From Name:
  • Click the Save button near the bottom left of the screen.
Going forward when you send an email from Yahoo mail it will use the new From Name.
