Distraida
No

I have my main account set up to display my legal name,
and my yahoo account set up to display 'Distraida.' But
instead of displaying Distraida, when I send email with
the yahoo address, it says 'Distraida' as it sends, but
says 'my legal name' when it is received. But I have
everything set correctly as far as I can tell. It's
like it's using information from my default account as
it's informatoin. I use Thunderbird 1.5.0.4 - Not sure
what other information you need, Windows XP home with
640 mb ram .. 64 megs shared video ram (on board intel
exteme 3d)

    I've been trying to figure out what could be causing this,
    up to and including changing my profile information on
    yahoo, changing default smtp server, changing default
    account, changing name on other account - but it still is
    giving my legal name. I don't like that :) - I don't know if
    this is a reflection of things Yahoo has done based on their
    recent lovely virus, or a ypops error. All I know is it
    started day before yestderday - I upgraded yesterday
    thinking that would stop the odd behavior. Something isn't
    right. I will keep trying to track it down from this end,
    and you can keep trying from your end :). Thank you

    I chased it down. It was a change made by Yahoo. To fix it I
    had to go into my mail account and choose "options," to
    change the way my "from" name displayed. I never had to do
    that before - I have NO idea what changed, something Yahoo
    did no doubt. Anyway, if anyone else has this problem now
    you know how to fix it. Thanks for the great program folks.

    Closing report since the report owner has found the root
    cause and fixed it without requiring any changes in YPOPs!

    Thanks for the update.
