How to change the alternate email address listed on your Yahoo! Mail account

Yahoo! Mail allows you store an alternate email address in your account settings.  This alternate address is used for certain notifications, but it's also the email address that Yahoo! will send the password reset link to, if you ever need to reset your password.  To change your alternate email address on file, follow the steps below.

- Log in to your Yahoo! Mail account
- Hover over the gear icon in the upper right corner and select Account Info
- If prompted, enter your Yahoo! password again
- Click on the Update your contact information link
- Enter a new email address next to Email 1 (for the first alternate email address) or Email 2 (for the second alternate email address)
- Click on the Save button at the bottom of the page
