How can I edit the "From" or "Sending" name and reply-to address of my outgoing messages?

You can edit the "From" or "Sending" name, the name displayed to recipients of your email messages, and your reply-to email address, the address where replies to your email messages will be sent, in your "Mail Options".

To edit these settings:
  1. Sign in to your Yahoo Business Email account.
  2. From the main Yahoo Business Mail page, click the Tools (gear) icon link in the upper-right corner of the page.

    Business Email Tools (Gear) Icon
    Business Email Tools (Gear) Icon
  3. Select "Mail Options" from the pull-down menu.

    Business Email Tools Pull-Down: Mail Options
    Business Email Tools Pull-Down: Mail Options
  4. Select "Mail Accounts" from the left column.

    Mail Options Menu: Mail Accounts
    Mail Options Menu: Mail Accounts

  5. Choose the mail account that you'd like to update.

    Mail Accounts: Selecting Email Address
    Mail Accounts: Selecting Email Address

  6. In the "Sending name" box, enter the name exactly as you would like it to appear in the "From:" line of your outgoing messages. Then click the Save button.

    Mail Accounts: Sending Address and Save Button
    Mail Accounts: Sending Address and Save Button

    Note: The From name may not contain special characters, such as the @ symbol.

If you leave the "Reply-to address" field blank, the return address of your outgoing messages will automatically display your Yahoo Business Email address. If you would like recipients of your messages to reply to a different email address, enter that address in the "Reply-to address" field. Your reply-to email address may not exceed 40 characters.

Note: You must enter a "Sending" name. If you leave this box blank, the previous entry or your default name, the name you gave when you registered with Yahoo, will appear and your other changes will not be saved.
