JA: Who is your email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.)?
Customer: Yahoo
JA: How do you access your email most often? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?
Customer: I am not a geek. I just go to Safari on my desktop screen and when Safari comes on I put the cursor on Yahoo and there it is.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Yahoo is confusing and unhelpful. Somebody, somewhere, must know how to get rid of the goofy way they are showing my name and restore it to what it should be all along: Robert W. O'Brien
JA: Anything else you want the email expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Nope, thank you
