  1. You need to be able to report spammers so they can be banned.

    You need to be able to report spam generators and have them disabled after 3 reports, and have an option for a human to remove them selves from the list through some verification procedure.

    • On my Iphone with the latest OS , my list digests links are broken.

      On my Iphone with the latest OS , my list digests links are broken. Clicking a link in the numbered list of topics in the first part of the email does not auto scroll down to that post, and the "top" link doesn't scroll up (though the reply links work fine). While I know how to return to the top otherwise, the topic list jump to the body of the email being broken drives me a bit nuts. Any fixes?

      • Better headers needed

        Yahoogroups should change the mail headers in group-mail distributions, so that recipients can determine the original sender of the mail. This is especially problematic for iPad2 native mail which rips out the descriptive part of the sender and just leaves the group's mail address.

                • Improve reliability of email delivery

                  I am a moderator of a group, and I am not getting all the emails sent through Yahoo Groups. Really? This is a main function of this service. I do not always getting my own emails I send to my group, and after some testing, I don't always get other people's messages. The same goes for the other 110 members. What do I have to do to make sure every person gets every email? It is so spotty and unreliable!!! Please FIX!!!

                    • Reporting abuse almost imposible. Your 'reply to this message' is attached to a message that SAYS you cant reply to it!

                      Make it easier to report abusive emails and have an email account you can use instead of having to spend hours trying to find a good email address

                      • Message senders are not receiving their own messages

                        I manage a moderated Yahoo Group. A number of members have reported that, when they send a message to the Group, and I approve, they don't receive their own message from the Group. Therefore, they never know if their message went through or not. Every member should receive every approved message.

                            Yahoo needs to stop putting email from YahooGroups into the Yahoo Mail spam folder. It seems absurd that I get ModeratorCentral email in my spam folder.

                                • Put the real sender's email address BACK on the emails.

                                  Yahoo changed the way that Groups emails are sent out so that the sender address on the email is the GROUP address, not the individual sender's address.

                                  This does make it simpler for people who happen to be using a defective email client which fails to implement the Reply-To header for email replies, BUT it has a terribly harmful effect for everyone else.

                                  This ridiculous and totally unnecessary change makes it difficult or impossible for individual group members to block emails from specific senders in the group.

                                  In nearly every email client, if you click that the email is spam…

                                    • Want to post as my *full name* or *nickname*.

                                      On many groups, I would like to post as my real name, not my username / Yahoo account name. Via the web interface, all my posts show up as my username despite changing my "Yahoo nickname" and "Full name" to appear as I wish. I've tried making an "alias" but I cannot, because my name is "already taken".

                                      I belong to a lot of groups, like local parent communities. It is ridiculous to have people using "free2rhyme" and "dairyman88" when you have a small community based group of people who know each other loosely in person.

                                      • Yahoo voice messages put in the "Spam" folder by Yahoo Mail! This should not happen!

                                        Today I had two notifications from Yahoo Voice automatically put into the Spam folder by Yahoo Mail. Below is one of the messages:

                                        [yahoo.uservoice.com] New comment on '"Join group" not working today - Purp...'

                                        • We don't want Yahoo spam.

                                          Adding ads for Yahoo in all my group messages is not only irritating when I ALREADY use Yahoo products, but it makes messages read on the phone especially obnoxious. Please stop spamming me and the members of my groups. If we wanted to use Yahoo Mail App, we would already be using it. Spamming us just makes Yahoo that much less appealing.
