      • Please bring spell check back to Yahoo Mail

        I am so dismayed that you removed spell check from Yahoo Mail. I write many emails per day and they must have correct spelling, I am a professional. Spell check in the browser does not work efficiently. It will correct misspelled words if it can figure out what word I am using, but if it can't figure out what word I am using, it just leaves it misspelled. There is no right click to get a list of correctly spelled words to choose from. I am forced to cut and paste all of my Yahoo Mail text into Microsoft Word…

        • Create a way to customize or disable 'Smart Views'.

          They are in my way and useless to me as they are now. I don't search to things based on people or finance. I need information like open orders, policy updates, billing notifications. We have each learned to organize our emails in the way that suits us best and each way is as different we as individuals are from each other. 'One size fits all (or most)' methods really just irritate everyone because it's never quite right for anyone.

          And so I repeat: The 'Smart Views' is in my way and if I can't customize it, I want to eliminate…

          • signature option disappeared?

            I have an outgoing email signature. I noticed that the formatting had changed. I went to settings and it seems there is NO more signature capacity? Well if not, at least allow me to remove the existing one because currently I have to cut and paste to delete it w/ EVERY email!

            Is signature permanently gone?
            IF so, how do I delete the current one since it's "broken".
            Thanks,
            MT

              We’re really sorry to hear that you’re having a hard time editing your signature!

              We’ve changed its location in your Mail Settings. We did this to make it easier to manage multiple accounts all from one Yahoo Mail page.

              You can find the updated settings in our Yahoo Help article at:

              https://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN16030

              Thank you very much for getting in touch with us about this!

            • Return back 'Move to Folder' option for 'Disposable Addresses'

              I have a huge number of 'Disposable Addresses'.
              And for each of them an option "Move to Folder" had been set which put every 'Disposable Address' email to its folder.

              !!! Now there is no such option in 'Disposable Addresses' !!!

              Yahoo Team automatically tried to create an individual Filter for every 'Disposable Addresses' "Move tp Folder" option I had before.

              But... As I can understand the number of Filters has a limit.

              I gues so because when I try to create a new Filter (Add a new filter) I get a warning message "Sorry, an unknown error has occurred.…

                • Make it easier to search, select, and delete a bunch of emails

                  After searching emails which meet specific criteria the view shows emails nicely grouped by date/period. It should be possible to select a bunch of emails by those groupings. At this time each email has to be individually selected. A smart company would make it easier for people to delete useless content so that the company would not have to continuously invest in increasing storage.

                    • Delete should mean delete!

                      Perhaps this is a recent "change"? Today I checked my email and clicked the "delete" link in the body of the email. Guess what, it was still there in the inbox. WHY do we have to click "Delete" twice, when before we only had to do this once?

                        I would really appreciate it if the Yahoo mail app could go back to being for mail only. I feel like since the news and weather were added to it I've been having problems with loosing emails and contacts saying they received many duplicates. I would prefer to access news and weather just from the online site or from a separate app

                            I’m sorry to hear that your account was compromised and that you are now having some trouble receiving messages. This is most likely happening because the hacker added a ‘forwarding address’ and/or a ‘reply-to’ address to your account that is directing emails away from your inbox. As a first step, please immediately change your password and go through the additional steps in the following help article to fully secure your account:

                            http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN3516&locale=en_US&y=PROD_ACCT

                            Please note that due to a recent update to the Settings page in Yahoo Mail you may need to switch to Basic Mail to remove the added forwarding and reply-to addresses. If you aren’t seeing these options in full-featured Mail please switch to Basic Mail. Then access the ‘Options’ menu via drop down menu in the upper right hand corner. You’ll see the options to remove these addresses under this menu. If you’re not sure how to switch…

                                Filters right now are extremely limited, without being able to handle multiple entries in the field box. This results in needing to create 50+ filters where one will do. supporting operators like OR, AND, and NOT would make filters much more useable.

                                    I’m sorry to hear that you’re having some trouble with spam messages in Yahoo Mail. Yahoo Mail does automatically filter these types of messages to your spam folder. If you’re continuing to see certain types of messages reach your inbox you may also want to set up filters to direct those types of messages to spam. Please take a look at the following help article for more information:

                                  • yahoo cant fight phishing scams they keep coming back the same names over and over

                                    yahoo cant do anything about phishing scams they come back over and over with the same names, maybe yahoo gets a kickback from the scamers, ..and provide them with infinite mail addresses.... yahoo sucks when it comes to phishing scams....

                                        I’m sorry to hear that you’re having some trouble with Yahoo Mail. You should be able to adjust the size of the print via a setting within your web browser. Please take a look at the following help article for instructions:
