As we all know, e-mail messages are sent out as FROM "you" and received as TO"you". For some weeks now, my e-mail messages are identified by a completely different name, which happens to be a real name from a distribution list of a friend who habitually includes that list when sending out her most recent "Ya gotta see this" message. A strange wrinkle is that recipients of my mail get my true name, and when I print out a copy of a message I have sent, the phony name that appeared on the screen now appears as my own name. So I am the only one who knows what my computer has done to me. I cannot find anyplace where I can delete this name and replace it with my own. Any suggestions?

First check your Sent Message folder, if you find any sent item that you haven't sent, then there must be something going on with your account, perhaps it's been hacked or with similar unauthorized access. If you find any suspicious activities, simply change the password and wait for another hours to make sure you don't receive another failed delivery message.
You also need to check your mail options such as your signature, in most cases, hacker/s changes the contents of the signature and the sender's name, etc..etc.. Probably they have inserted some texts in place of your signature. If you find so, delete them and save the new settings.
Let me know if you need further help, let me know.
I am not sure exactly if what I did solved the problem.
The main thing was I deleted messages from my in, sent, spam & finally emptied trash. But it didn't seem to have made a change yesterday.
Today I received a message from yoy (Fixya), I then tested it and it seems to be working fine.
Maybe a routine night job by Yahoo permenantly removed my deleted messages and created space.
If this is possible please let me know.
Check to make sure that your spam filter or junk e-mail box is not intercepting your missing messages. There are times when certain keywords in subject lines are earmarked as junk mail or spam simply because spammers happen to be using these same words.
Also, be sure that you are not downloading mail from any other source other than your single computer. If so, be sure that the other machine or device is not downloading and then deleting your messages.
Another possibility to check is to make sure no one else is downloading your e-mail. To be sure of this, change your password.
And lastly, there is always the chance that the messages are not being sent correctly. Several cases come to mind...I had a client who mentioned a similar problem that seemed to have sprung up overnight. In the end, the culprit ended up being the sender's auto-fill function was auto-filling a similar name, but incorrect e-mail address. Hence, it appeared that the sender was sending to the correct person, but since he did not check the actual outgoing e-mail address, some of the messages did not go out. They got sent to a third party.
Anyway, hope this helps! If so, please take a moment to give this response a positive rating. Thanks!

If it's with in the past two weeks Usually your companies System admin can track the delivery of incoming and out going messages. They will not be able to say that the message was delivered to your inbox but they will be able to say if it reached yahoo's server!
