For some reason, when I send an email from my Yahoo account from my Samsung 8+, the replies come into my Gmail account. When you look at the email reply, it clearly says "mailto:myyahooaddress" yet it only shows up in my gmail account.

I tested it by sending a friend an email and sure enough, when they do a reply, my Gmail address shows up even though it is sent from the Yahoo account.

I checked my settings in Yahoo and no where does it show my Gmail info other than recovery account did my email address show up. I deleted it and it still does the same thing.

Why is this happening and how to stop it? I am guessing it is a setting in the Samsung phone that is causing this.

  • Did you sign up for google account using your yahoo account? – Rajat Toshniwal Mar 25 '18 at 5:12
  • Does the same happen when using a computer browser to check your email? – aBochur Mar 25 '18 at 7:00
  • @Rajat - No I did not – Blake Batson Mar 25 '18 at 17:04
  • @aBochur I did do that and it works fine. The reply goes back to my yahoo account. And there is no difference in the emails sent from either Samsung phone or computer. The email headers look the same but when you hit reply, one goes back to the yahoo account (computer sent email) and one goes back to my gmail account (phone sent email). It is very strange. – Blake Batson Mar 25 '18 at 17:08
  • I have a feeling that it may be the recovery account, try changing the recovery account email to nothing or something else to see if the problem has anything to do with that. – Gadget Guru Mar 25 '18 at 20:30
