Why does my Yahoo email address appear as an option when composing emails in Hotmail and how can I remove it?

When I try to make [write?] a new email, I found my Yahoo [e]mail [address?] appears as an option to choose from which email I want to send my Hotmail or Yahoo Mail. I don’t want my Yahoo email to appear anywhere in my Hotmail for personal issue.

I tried to check sending/receiving email from other accounts, but I found that I don’t have any other email accounts assigned to my Hotmail. But at the same time I still have this problem.

Hope you could help me with this problem, and waiting your feedback
your prompt reply will be appreciated.

    Your Yahoo email is saved in the Hotmail contacts list. Removing it from the Hotmail contacts will resolve the problem for you.

    Can I ask you what kind of device you are using? A mobile phone or your computer. And are you using an app that handle email if so, which one? These details will help us helping you out! Thanks

    It sounds as if your Yahoo email address is in your Hotmail contact list. This typically happens, when email is sent to or received from an email address.

    Now as mentioned when I recommended you to ask your question here, I don't know much about Hotmail. However, in general you should be able to view your contact list and remove that ID / email address from it. Hope someone else can explain in detail how this can be done.

      Removing the contact should be enough, I think.
