Change name visible to someone receiving my email

Currently it shows my husband's name when someone receives an email from me. I want to change it to either my name or a combination. How do I do that?!

Re: Change name visible to someone receiving my email

hi bobandleaann!

if you are using the AT&T Yahoo! webmail, you may try these steps:

FOR CLASSIC MAIL VERSION:
click on 'Options' (upper-right corner) --> change the "From Name:" field which is under the GENERAL category --> click on SAVE CHANGES button above.

FOR NEW MAIL VERSION:
click on 'Options' (upper-right corner) --> MAIL OPTIONS --> click on 'Accounts' (left panel) --> click on 'Add or Edit an Account' link (another window will open) --> highlight the default email and click on 'Edit' button --> change the "From Name:" field and click the 'Save' button on the upper-left corner.

this will change your display name when you send out your emails.

hope this helps! :smileyhappy:
