    I have a yahoo account. Within that yahoo account, I have recently changed
    the name information and saved those changes. But - even though I've done
    those things - when I send a message to my outlook account, the old name
    still displays. I think this must be something that needs to be changed in
    Outlook, but I don't know what it is.

  2. Do you have the details set here: Tools menu > Email accounts > View/Change
    email accounts > Click Next > Highlight your Yahoo mail account > Click
    Change

    > Thank you, I checked your suggestion. But, I think I've misstated my question. My primary method of e-mailing is my Outlook account. However, for privacy purposes, I've also created an account with Yahoo. Originally, I created that Yahoo account with certain name identification information. I sent a test e-mail to my outlook account and Outlook displays the actual first and last name that I designated within Yahoo. Now that I've changed that first and last name within the yahoo account, Outlook still continues to "recognize" and display the original first and last name. Is this an Outlook issue or perhaps a Yahoo issue?
