    I will try to explain this as easy as possible. When I got my windows 8.1 phone, I registered a new outlook account to connect with my phone. For this purpose I just chose a name that came into my mind at the time.

    Lets just say the account name I chose was RANDOMNAME@outlook.com, registered on the name "RANDOM NAME".

    Anyway, I have later added different email-accounts to my phone, including gmail and yahoo mail.

    My problem is, that when I send mail from these accounts (yahoo, gmail) -- from my phone-- the recipient receives email addressed from "RANDOM NAME". All the mail I send out from yahoo and google is addressed from the name registered in my outlook account. This only happens when I send mail from my phone.

    I logged into my outlook account and changed the name, but no luck..

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    On the phone go to Settings > email + accounts > tap on the Yahoo account name > look for the field "Your name" and edit it > repeat for each affected account
