  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!

    • Get rid of the 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…

      • 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.

        • Get rid of Archive

          It's a waste. Not only does it require relearning the layout of the buttons, it also creates another clutter spot - if you aren't going to delete a message, why not create a specific subject folder instead of a second clutter spot.

          If Yahoo isn't going to remove the feature, give us a setting option so we can remove it from our personal account - make it an option, not a requirement.

          • Block feature. Allow Block to block email addresses by domain instead of the complete email address.

            Block by domain name and not by the complete email address. The spammers can use the same domain and keep changing the sender name infinitely. So block by domain. Would be much more effective.

                Hello,

                Thanks for the feedback regarding spellchecker.

                The primary reason spellcheck has been removed is due to the fact that all browsers these days actually do automatic spell checking and caused some conflicts.

                As such, you can simply type emails, and you’ll notice that your browser automatically detects typo’s or spelling errors by highlighting the words in red/green. And when right clicking the browser will offer suggestions as well. It was actually much more robust than our old spellcheck.

                hope that helps. Thank you for your loyalty and support!

                  Hello,

                  It’s possible that you accidentally enabled the column view. You can control this by clicking “V” in your inbox view, which toggles between the different views. Click “V” each time to rotate to the view of your choice.

                  You can also change this in settings.

                  Hope that helps. Thanks for your loyalty and support.

                  New block feature should block emails senders from both inbox and spam folder. I don't want these people to send me mail at all. Come on Yahoo. You know what we wanted in a block feature. Help us really beat spam.

                    The Ads are just awful and I never look at them anyway. They slow me down as you cannot keep up with my typing. I have to wait until your stupid ads come in first before I can type my message.

                            • Reset email notification

                              The system says that I have new emails but I don't. I contacted the automated Help, but was told that everything is okay, and since that message came from a "no reply" account, there is little that I can do.

                              It should be easier to reset or synch the new email counter.

                                  Many of my folders are simply my emails with certain people. E.g., my brother emails me, the email from him goes in his folder. It would be amazing if I could tag email addresses to always go into folder X. Then I could click a "File" button (assuming the email was from someone with an auto-folder setting assigned) and the email would move to that folder automatically. That would DRASTICALLY reduce the time I spent filing as it would leave only atypical message requiring me to manually drag them to a folder. Everything else could get filed in the right…

                                      • MAIL SUCKS!

                                        ********. What the **** is wrong with the email. First I sent an email with a couple of pics as attachments. I received a "failure" notice. I re-sent it. This time it went through but attachments were missing. I re-sent it again. This time it was delivered to me, and not the intended address. WHAT THE **** IS WRONG? FIX THIS ****!
