      • Sub folders!

        I use Hotmail/outlook web based email at work, it breaks every now and then, but it does allow me to organise my emails into subfolders, which are always on the left side bar.

        Please bring this feature to Yahoo, it would be very useful.

          • For the past 2 days, my mail viewed on Firefox won't allow me to open or compose messages.

            I get a message in the lower right urging me to "load basic mail." What's going on here?

            • Fix the stupid log in problem so I dont have to sign in everyday, multiple times a day

              • Delete All Messages In a Folder

                Really, in today's world, sometimes the number of messages in a Folder gets large. Why make me delete them 50 or 200 at a time? Why not just DeleteAll? Please implement this simple thing. Otherwise, you will end up saving them for me forever.

                • Yahoo's changes to their mail servers prevents ListServ Use

                  Just received this note from a ListServ Moderator I subscribe to. Because I use Yahoo Mail, I can no longer post to the list Serv. Clearly the tech geeks can't figure out a solution. So the only recourse they see is to prevent me from posting. Nice going Yahoo.

                  Here is the note

                  Dear Client:

                  Yahoo initiated a terrible policy change to their mail servers recently that impacts every single mailing list software in use, not just Mailman. If any Yahoo.com user posts to your list, they will cause those list members whose ISP/ESP provider is using DMARC (Hotmail, Gmail,…

                    This behavior you’ve noticed is related to Yahoo’s DMARC policy which was put in place to combat the practice of “spoofing” email addresses. That’s where pretends they send an email from your address and our server, but it actually is coming from somewhere else entirely, and as you can imagine it’s a major security issue.

                    For more on what DMARC is and how you can avoid having legitimate emails blocked by it, please have a look at the Yahoo! Help article “Email service providers can’t send to / from Yahoo addresses”, available at:

                    https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail/SLN24016.html

                    I really appreciate you giving me the opportunity to address this for you!

                          There is a "); showing next to the mail icon above the inbox that is obviously a sign some quotes are cutting off some code and my messenger is not launching from the messenger icon. My suggestion is that the developers should fix that.

                              I’m sorry to hear you lost some emails that were previously in your Yahoo! Mail account.

                              This problem you are having with emails going to your Trash may be related to POP activity in your Yahoo! Mail account. I recommend reading the following Yahoo! Mail Help article “POP client moves emails to Trash Folder” for the best help resolving this problem. You can find the link to it below.

                              http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN5677&locale=en_US&y=PROD_MAIL_ML

                              To request the restoration of emails missing from your Yahoo! Mail account, you will need to read the information in the Yahoo! Help article “Restoring your Yahoo! account” — this contains not only information you need to complete this process, but also the forms that you will need to fill out to complete your request. You can find that article at:

                              It would be really helpful if I could right click on a Yahoo Mail tab and have the option to "Close All Other Tabs" and maybe "Close Tabs to the Right" much like in Chrome. If the right click on a tab is not an option, just an easily clickable "Close All Tabs" button.

                                I think there should be an easier way to Block unwanted emails like outlook.com has. Just check off the unwanted emails and then just hit a Block button at the top of the mail page instead of having to type email addresses in.

                                    • Disposable Addresses - Base name problem

                                      I was trying the "Disposable Addresses" feature. To see how it looks and to get used to it, I create a new email address using a random "base name" and a random "keyword". After that, I said ok, it is a very useful characteristic, but now let me give rise to a real one that I can really use. So I deleted this address.
                                      But, to my surprise, the "base name" was impossible to erase. I now that you can only have one base name, but the fact that it stays forever there once you have choosen it, that was…

                                        • Suddenly all my sent files appear without recipient's name, just me, me, me. Please fix so I can find where my sent email went.

                                          Fix my sent box so I see recipient's name -- like it has always been.
                                          Having me, me, me as all I see in my sent box is of no use to me.
                                          I know I sent the things. I just want to be able to find recipients' names.
                                          Thanks.
