GetHuman-gypsypea's next move: go to the Yahoo help center.
Yahoo doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-gypsypea will want to follow the link below to head to their help center. We will check on GetHuman-gypsypea later to make sure it's all set or try to help escalate.
Tip from another customer
Log in to Yahoo, and in the upper right corner select your name/ID. Choose the option for Account Info, then select either Personal Info or Preferences, depending on the info you wish to update.
The issue in GetHuman-gypsypea's own words
I tried changing the name on my Yahoo email account and it continues to appear to others as the same name as before. On my end, it shows the new name. But to all receivers of emails, it shows as coming from old name. Need to change NOW for business reasons. Please help!
