If I am right, what you want to do is change your middle name in your yahoo account...right? If that's the situation, what you have to do is sign in your yahoomail account, click your yahoo ID located in the upper right of your browser right beside the "signout" link (u can find it there if you are using yahoomail classic), don't click signout...

(
Note: If you are using yahoomail beta,click the
"
My Account" link at the top left of your browser)

then click the "edit" link beside the Address/Contact, and edit the middle name you want to change inside the middle name text box and lastly, click the "Finish" button located on the top right or bottom right of your browser, either of the two will do.

Now your maiden name is changed, try sending message and see if it has really changed...thank you! Notify me if it didn't work....If this solution works for you, please give a rate,thank you again!

Yahoo account hacked


Change your password and change your answers to questions that allow you to change your password. Sometimes this is done by an ex husband or ex boyfriend or someone that knows the answers to such questions like : What is your mothers maiden name. Rather than give the real maiden name that someone close to you will know, use a ficticious name that only you know.

Signed out of Messenger


A) A glitch.
B) You are signed in somewhere else.

Try it again. Also, if someone else is signed in to your account, you can boot them out by signing in yourself.

I'd change the password.
