  1. Please do NOT automatically play videos when I empty my spam or delete folders

    You made a recent change where you automatically play videos when one empties the spam or trash folders. I don't mind you showing videos that I may choose to play. But please don't start a video assuming I want to watch it. I find it annoying!

    • No more video ads!!

      I am close to switching to another email provider because yahoo mail cannot keep up when I am typing an email. The video ads slow down the service so much that every other word is omitted from my emails or I have to sit and wait for the service to respond in mid sentence. I, and I am sure most users, will not pay for an ad free service in 2016. There are plenty of free email providers that do not have video ads running in the background! Therefore, if you make me switch then I also would not be…

            • Give options for deleting items in "Trash"

              Let us have options on how often to empty trash and base it on the date the item was put in trash!
              Don't delete items in trash based on date received - base it on date placed in trash. If an item is inadvertently put in trash that is old and you were saving it it disappears immediately because it's older than the last trash "dump."

              • If I typo an email address, please allow me to correct it with the cursor, instead of making me re-type the entire thing!

                I used to be able to move the cursor to correct a typo in the "To" line, but now as soon as I'm done typing, it automatically highlights the address and does not allow changes. I have to delete the addressees name and start over. Why is this??

                • Ads Make Writing Emails Extremely Difficult

                  I am working on transferring my accounts to another email server because reading and replying to emails is near impossible due to the ads. My computer (all of the computers I use) slow down dramatically because of the constant reloading of ads on the right hand side of the screen.
                  Please consider changing your advertising format or make "Yahoo Mail Classic" available again.

                  • Can you place the Delete button back to where it use to be, and place the new archive button where the delete button is now?

                    I actually think that the new archive button is pretty neat, but can it be moved? The delete button has been relocated and the archive button is in it's place now. I keep finding myself accidentally archiving stuff that I want to delete. If you return the delete button to where it use to be, and place the archive button to where you have the delete button now, I think it would be much easier.

                        • Improve the Block function

                          The block function should not take two (or three) steps to complete.
                          If you select "block" for a specific e-mail or spam communication, it should block it and not allow anything further from that domain.

                          Why have the users to send future e-mails from the sender into the spam folder when they should be blocked fully?
                          If the blocking function is supposed to block unwanted messages, then let it do it's job as (I'm assuming here) it's supposed to do?

                          Why would I (or anyone else for that matter) want to continue to receive anything that has been flagged as…

                                      • need a chat when your articles do not address the issue.

                                        you have made the assumption that every account has access to a smart phone. I can not get login information because I keep getting sent in circles of your error messages. I need to get into a account that has a non working phone number assigned and does not have an account key. I have no way to change this information. a real person is need to get around the windows that are not working.

                                        • Have actual phone operators avaliable to help your customers!!!!!!!

                                          Have actual customer service reps people can call to help out your customers!!!!! It's ridiculous that you don't!!!! Only your reps at Yahoo can help on some of the problems your customers are having. We got a new computer my mom is 71 her recovery cell phone#s don't exsist anymore. she has her password but since she can't get a damned code to put in from phones she no longer has access to she can't get into her email!!! how idiotic!!! and you can get no help!!!
