  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…

        • 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.

          • 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."

            • 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…

                • 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??

                      • Allow Block to block email addresses by domain or wildcard 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.

But no Arab or Islamic ones. I am christian Catholic Arab, and I vote to add the Islamic Calendar to ensure all inclusion and respect to a HUGE percentage of the world's population.

                                      • Make sent emails appear in sent box instead of disappearing. And no one at yahoo will help me or respond to my posts on the community page

                                        No one will help me. My email showed up as failed in the outbox. I resent the email. It is now gone. Not in the sent box, nor the outbox, nor anywhere. There is no way to contact yahoo. They wont respond on the community page. Im so frustrated. This was a very important email that needed to be sent and i need a copy of it. Its gone! And no one will help me :(
