    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?!

    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:
