I've sent a few emails to someone, and in their reply in my inbox, the email address would show up in the From column. But in their latest reply, their full name showed up. Why is that? I didn't add them as a contact either.

The sender's mail server can put pretty much anything they want in the "from" field of the mail message, the "Return-Path" field contains the actual sender email

We both have yahoo accounts. I was just wondering if there was any particular reason why it changed from the address to the full name.

Oh, I think I know. The last one looks like it wasn't sent from a phone. The others were.

Random Email Question

Another possibility is that yahoo email client automatically adds them as a contact after sending/receiving so many emails from one address?
