Open your yahoo webmail page and sign in.

On the welcome page check the top right side of the page, you'll find the option button.

Click on it and a drop down menu will show two choices.

Click on the mail option and that will take you to the page allowing you to change your preferences.

Click on general preference and that should take you another page and edit information.

Change the name that you want to appear when you send your e-mail.

Hope that helps,

Jinno

When my friend set up my computer he put his email in as back up if ever I had trouble he could access my computer.Now every time I send an email it reads from him & a lot of my friends won't even open it...


Every email message lists a sender name in the "From" field.
This name is defined by the value you entered in your email client when you first configured your account.
If you marry, divorce or need to change your name for any other reason, common email clients, including Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express and web-based services such as Windows Live Hotmail and Gmail, give you the ability to change the sender name to any alternate value with just a few clicks.

Click the "File" button near the top-left corner of the screen, select "Info" and click "Account Settings."
Select the name of your email account, and click the adjacent "Change" button.

Enter your preferred sender name in the "Your Name" field.


Click "Next," followed by "Finish," to confirm the change.

Microsoft Outlook Express 6

Click "Tools" in the top menu bar, and select "Accounts."


Select the "Mail" tab in the resulting dialog box.


Select the name of your email account, and click the adjacent "Properties" button.


Select the "General" tab on the screen that follows, and enter your preferred sender name in the "Name" field.


Click "OK," followed by "Close," to confirm your change.

Windows Live Hotmail

Log into your Windows Live Hotmail account.


Click the "Options" button near the top-right corner of the window, and select "More Options."


Click the "Account details" link located below the "Managing your account" heading.


Locate your name on the following screen, and click the adjacent "Change" link.


Enter your preferred sender name using the "First name" and "Last name" fields, and click "Save."

Gmail

Log into your Gmail account.


Click the "Settings" link located near the top-right corner of the window.


Click the "Accounts and Import" link on the screen that follows.


Look to the "Send mail as" section, locate your email address and click the adjacent "Edit info" link.

Enter your preferred sender name in the "Name" field, and click "Save Changes."

How do i link my free yahoo email account to MS Outlook 7?


Hello,
To setup your Yahoo in MS Outlook 2007, please follow the procedures written below:
1. First of all, you must enable POP3 in your yahoo mail account. If your current yahoo setting for the preferred content is “Yahoo US”, it requires “yahoo mail plus”. But if you change the setting as “Yahoo Asia”, then you can enable POP3 access in your yahoo mail account. To do that:
- Sign in to your yahoo mail account. (I assumed that you switched the yahoo mail options to “All-New mail” view from “Mail Classic” view.)
- Click on your “Display Name” and select “Account Info”

- Continue signing in yahoo account info verifying your password.
- In your yahoo account info page find the “Account Settings” section.
In the “Account Settings” section, check the current settings for “Set Language, site, time zone” content. If it is “Yahoo! U.S.”, then click “Set Language, site, time zone” link.

- In the “Edit Member Information” page, click on the New Setting option and change your current preferred content settings to Yahoo! Asia and click “Finished” button.

- Click “I Accept” button on the “Terms of Service” screen to proceed further.
- The preferred content will be “Yahoo! Asia”. Click the “Finished” button to save the settings.
- In your yahoo mail box page, click on Options and select More Options…
