    Unauthorized Emails from my account?

    It is more than likely that your email account was hacked, either by a virus sniffing your password, or just simply hacked.

    Either way, change your password on your email account. Unfortunately the damage by already be done. They already have your contact list and your email address associated with that contact list. There is nothing stopping them from sending out emails using their own SMTP servers to everyone on your contact list and claiming the emails are from your email address. They don't actually have to have access to your yahoo account or even any yahoo server to send emails to people that come from your address.

    Hi Nooren,

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.


    • Open PC settings, and click/tap on Accounts on the left side.

    • Click/tap on your account on the right side, click/tap on the More account settings online link at the top of the right side.

    • If this PC or device is not a trusted device, then you will be prompted to enter and submit a security code sent to your phone or alternate email address.

    • In Internet Explorer, or your default web browser, click/tap on the Add or change aliases link under Account aliases.

    • Click/tap on Rename under your (primary alias).

    • Click/tap on Yes, rename my primary alias.

    • Sign in to your Microsoft account with your new email address and password. You can close the web browser when finished.

      • Select (dot) Create a new email address as your primary alias.

      • Select if you want a new hotmail.com, live.com, or outlook.com address.

    I would suggest you to follow the steps to change the Account display in Mail app:

    1. Open Mail app

    2. Select “settings”.

    3. Under settings select “Manage Account”.

    4. Click on the Account name

    5. Change the Account name

    If still not working, try the steps below:

    • In the Mail app, open Settings (the gear icon).
    • Click 'Manage Accounts'
    • Select the account you want to change the outgoing display name for
    • Click 'options for syncing email, contacts, and calendar'
    • in the account sync settings, there should be a 'Your name' text field that is used as the display name for outgoing emails.
