Don't think it is mate, sounds like a scam to me.

Are you normally using a name that's not actually your name?

Why do you have bookmarks for outlook, gmail and ymail?

Weirdo, ingrate them all into one.

You mean make emails sent to them get forwarded to one of them?
I don't want to. I like things separate.
And the kids use this computer but they only have emails with one of the three depending on their preference.

That happens if you've been suspected of using a name that isn't your real name

Which makes sense if you've been using a single initial for your surname.

I see.
Is it some kind of new policy to harass people?

I've been using this name since I created my account YEARS AGO.

It's always been around. I remember years ago a local drag queen freaking out because they changed his name.

My friend had issues with it years ago because he shares the name of a celebrity and footballer

My friend got this from Facebook because he has a Gaelic name and Facebook thought it was a fake name.
He complained and got an apology from them.
A slight majority of a statistically worthless sample size agree.

Well how did he complain.
I don't see a useful help link anywhere on their site.
I don't want to upload a driving license.
