Change your Yahoo Groups message posting name

Depending on how you post messages to your group, there are a couple of ways that Yahoo Groups displays your name to your fellow group members.

Posting via the web

Your Yahoo ID will display next to your group posts, by default.

Posting via email

Your name as it appears on outgoing email from your email account (your "From" or "Sending" name) will display next to your group posts. If you haven't set a sending name in your email account's preferences, your full email address will display on your Groups posts, instead.

Changing your sending name

  • Yahoo Mail—learn how to change your sending name as it appears on outgoing emails, and on Groups posts you make via email.
  • Non-Yahoo email providers or clients—please check their help or support website, as the steps for changing your sending name vary.
