    • 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.

          • I'm paying for ad free mail, yet Yahoo! is applying it's own ad relentlessly.

            "Add Yahoo! ... as an application to mailto links?" This shows up as a banner that animatedly shifts my entire window down several pixels every time I access my mail online for the past week. There is no way to permanently disregard it. I am paying for "ad free mail".

              I’m sorry you’re displeased with that notice. It isn’t an advertisement, it’s a notice from your Web browser asking if you would like use Yahoo Mail as your Web browser’s default email app for email links.

              For more on this, please have a look at the Yahoo! Help article "Request to add Yahoo as “mailto” application", available at:

              https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN24051.html

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

                I’m sorry to hear you’re having that trouble with forwarding emails from your Yahoo Mail account. You do not have to include the original sender as a recipient to forwards you send.

                I recommend reading the following Yahoo! Mail Help article “Forward and reply to messages in Yahoo Mail” for the steps to forward an email using Yahoo! Mail. You can find the link to it below.

                https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail/SLN22022.html

                I hope this has helped you!

              • Beef up your security measures, to better protect your customers.

                Whenever there's a major security breach, my Yahoo! address gets harvested by the online thieves, but my Google address does not. This makes it look like criminals have too easy a time accessing your database(s) of customer information. It's really worrisome, and I'm tired of having to keep on changing my password every few weeks lately.

                Put some of the brain power you're using to further monetize your email product to the task of better protecting your remaining customers, or you'll find that many of us will stop using Yahoo! Mail.

                  Thank you for your feedback! We do take security very seriously, and have been making large investments in improving security, two examples being our recent DMARC policy change and our efforts to ensure every Yahoo URL is SSL-encrypted.

                  You can rest assured that we certainly will continue to improve and evolve our security policies. Thank you again for your time in addressing this with us!

                • deleted email addresses autofilling

                  Why are email addresses of people I don't know coming up when I'm entering addresses in a new message? Deleted email addresses are popping up as well. It's as though Yahoo is grabbing email addresses from ALL of my stored emails and suggesting them when I start typing in addresses. I don't want to see addresses of people I don't know and I don't want an old, deleted address as an option. Why has Yahoo made this so much more difficult... yet again. Stop messing with your system. It worked fine until you forced us all to change!!

                        Did Yahoo send me "Your email will expire soon" from Yahoo Upgrade? Or is it Spam? How do I know? I use the email address almost daily - it should not expire.

                            I just got a new yahoo account because my old account was not allowing me to send multiple messages, so they said to open a new account. Now I am having the same problem with this account also.

                                • Please put a link on the email page for MY YAHOO. I really miss having that so handy.

                                  In the past there has always been a link at the top of the page for MY YAHOO. I can no longer fin that and I miss it. Because of that, I have not been using MY YAHOO. I just can't find it anymore.

                                  • Deliver the mail. The junk mail gets here every few minutes, the personal mail is delayed hours, sometimes a day.

                                    Deliver the mail! I emailed myself from work(non-yahoo account) and it took hours to arrive in my yahoo mailbox. Yahoo manages to fill it with junk in a timely manner, but not the stuff I need. I have started to migrate to gmail - delivery is immediate.

                                    • how do i log in to email with the CONSTANT delays - CONSTANT CONSTANT CONSTANT

                                      I WOULD WELCOME AN EMAIL SERVICE WHERE THE EMAIL ACTUALLY LOADS AND OPENS WHEN THE USER NEEDS IT RATHER THAN THE STANDARD AT YAHOO WHICH SEEMS TO BE DELAYING ACCESS TO ANY EMAIL AT ANY TIME FOR NO PARTICULAR REASON - TEDIOUS VERY TEDIOUS. i only wish it worked half as well as the CONSTANT spam that Yahoo still allows at every level in their email service ....
