  1. change Yahoo email so Pop download again marks messages as read on the Yahoo server after downloaded in Outlook, Apple mail, etc

    please change Yahoo email back so Pop access again marks messages as read on the Yahoo server after downloaded in Outlook, Apple mail, etc. etc. Or put an option in Yahoo so folks can set the way they need.

      • STOP the Pop Up Warning for 'Less Secure Sign In'

        Please STOP the constant pop up warning (on my desktop webmail) regarding sign in for less secure third party apps. I know I am using a non yahoo mail app on my phone and I will continue to do so, despite your warnings.

        The repetitive warning is **** ANNOYING, so please turn it off. I know what my preferences are and I don't need to be asked to change them 6 times a day!!!!

        Yahoo's refusal to assist certain other third party apps with the security protocol changes is arrogant. Yahoo will NOT force me to use the Yahoo mail…

        • Re-enable importing emails via POP

          On April 1st, Fools' Day, the new updated version of Yahoo mail will not support the import of emails via POP. Sounds like a Fool’s day joke, please fix it for the rest of the year.

          • Allow disabling of spam filters or allow POP3 downloading of all e-mails (including 'spam')

            I prefer to download all my e-mails via POP3 and deal with spam at my end once they are downloaded. The Yahoo mail spam filters have too many false positive filters for my liking. A long time ago you could turn the spam filters off. This was great. Then you decided to remove that option for some unfathomable reason. But that wasn't the end of the world - there was a work around with filters but then you disable that. Still it was OK POP3 downloaded them all so it only affect me those rare times I used webmail. Now…

            • Please provide a better, more efficient way to manage email filters

              The purpose of Yahoo filters is to clean your Inbox and stay organized. With Yahoo! Mail Plus, you can create up to 1,000 filters that tell incoming messages what folder to be delivered to using certain criteria. You can even direct unwanted email to Trash.

              With this feature where the order of the filters matters, it is important for the user to prioritize their filters from top down. Without an efficient way for users to manage their filters, how then are we supposed to do that?

              The current filter view/functionality presents challenges for the following reasons:

                • How about an email to get in touch with an actual yahoo agent. I am having problems logging

                  Being able to contact and actual agent. I am having problems logging into my account and guess what, there is no easy way to fix it or to even get in touch with someone who can actually help. It tells me to verify that it is my address and when I click to have the verification code sent to me guess where it goes, to my yahoo email which I cant get into because i cant verify that it is me. This is absolutely ridiculous.

                  • 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.

                        Even if you only make it optional please do something about putting the Top Results in my search isn't actually helping me. It makes the reading of my emails much more difficult. Most of the time the Top Results have nothing to do with what I am looking for.

                            • automatic videos

                              Automatic Videos: Dear Yahoo Mail, please ***** right off with automatically playing videos when my mailbox is empty. There isn't a human alive who actually wants this feature. It is insanely annoying, especially when I'm at work. This one "feature" and the fact that there is no way to opt out is a solid reason for me wanting to drop my yahoo account entirely. I mean seriously, every time the video pops up, I get a tad murdery.

                                  Use labels instead of folders

                                  I strongly believe that Yahoo should allow us to use labels instead of folders for e-mails, like Gmail does.

                                  Labels do provide a lot more flexibility, as it is possible to assign multiple labels to an e-mail.

                                  With Gmail, every e-mail that comes in gets the Inbox label assigned to it, meaning it will show in the Inbox view. It is possible to create rules that assign additional labels to incoming e-mails.
                                  For example, assign a label called "Family" to e-mails from family members. Incoming e-mails from a family member will show in the Inbox…

                                    • You need a better email support process as the Restore Request does not work

                                      I have tried over and over again to submit a Restore Request (using Chrome, IE and Firefox) and it keeps displaying the same error "Sorry, there was an error on our end. Please try again later." There is no other way to get a hold of someone for support which is absolutely ridiculous! If I am unable to get my folder(s) restored, I don't see any reason to continue using Yahoo

                                        • turn off "top results" in email search

                                          "top results" is horrible, very confusing, I just want all results in reverse chronological order, please have a way to turn this off
