    I tweaked my yahoo and google accounts a long time ago, and I'm experiencing the consequence now.

    I send messages from my gmail account using the Mail App, but the replies to my messages are forwarded to my yahoo account.

    I've already tried everything in my knowledge to tweak it back but to no avail.

    Help.. please. It's starting to irritate me. Thanks!

    Have you tried going to the mail options in gmail? check this on your gmail account using webmail(browser). see of if its being forwarded to yahoo account whenever you have replies.

    Should look like this.: disable forwarding should be checked.

    Maybe your tweak led to filling out the 'reply to address' field.

    The 'reply to address' field is usually hidden. To check it, I hope my screenshot helps.

    After clicking the 'reply to address' field, it will look like this:

    I'm using Mail Version 2.1.3 on Tiger 10.4.11. I'm not sure if this is applicable to later versions.

    I think you might set your smtp via yahoo.mail, all mail routed thru yahoo or gmail will have reply address of the smtp
