email sent folder shows all from: "me"


email sent folder shows all from: "me"

In my 'sent' emails - all show from 'me'.

Used to show to whom sent = better info.

Tried the 'view' option = no 'to whom' sent option.

Thanks, John

This new email format keeps popping up and instead of the company name or my name it comes up with ME..... so any time in subject or to or from it is from not my company's name it is ME.. This is the scecond time this occured -the first ist corrected it self. Now it is not ---So what is going on? and How can I get this corrected?

Hello, JJL111 and stitchnkitty!


Thanks for posting. It sounds like you're both experiencing the same issue. If you click on the little gear icon, it should open up your settings, and you may be able to change "Sender's Info." For more information about the updated email, click on the link below.

Re: new email format?

When in the "new email" there is a wheel in the upper right.

Click that + go to settings + click "basic em" at bottom - this solved it

permanently for me. - John

Re: new email format?

Yes It does solve it--I did that and then clicked save and it DID NOT save. Solved only for that one session and that one tab after that it is keep changing it to the basic over and over again - I dont understand that once it is saved why is it not saved?

I spent 45 minutes on the phone with customer service yesterday and he said it couldn't be changed.  I can't imagine this is true. When switching to Basic, I lose all of the new features.  Also, when clicking on the gear, "Sender's Info" is not an option on my computer under settings.  Please update us on a fix or if there is a plan to fix.  It makes no sense!  Thank you in advance for your time and consideration!

Sent folder in email shows sender (Me), not recipient

After the latest changes to the ATT yahoo email web page, the Sent folder displays the Sender (Me) in the first column instead of the Recipient if there has been no reply. I KNOW that I sent it. This makes it difficult to find a specific Sent email at a glance. Any way to change that?

Never mind, I figured it out. (Settings, uncheck "Enable Conversations") What a waste of time.

Still hate the new layout. You can't resize the columns or sort the columns with one click and the new ad at the top of the email list is seriously annoying. And the ads on the side take up a lot more space on the screen. And the washed out appearance is harder to read. Could go on and on. Will probably switch to Outlook.

Hello everyone,


Try changing your Sent folder view settings: Go to Sent - View - Sort By - Recipient. Please let us know if that works.

And why would that not be the default in the "Sent" folder?   Why do people have to hunt under rocks to get what every other e-mail program does by default?
