  1. RIPPED OFF by Yahoo premium services. I have had a paid email account for 16 plus years. It has been on auto pay for every January but

    Suddenly today I have ads in my inbox of my paid email account. I have had a paid email account for 16 years which auto paid every January. After spending almost an hour on chat with customer service I still got no satisfactory answer or resolution except to be told to pay again. Why would I pay a second time for the same year????
    Heck I cannot even sign into my premium account to make sure my credit card is current. Furtthermore there was NO notice or warning. Nothing! Just one minute I was premium and the next I was…

    • Create a button/link to directly "Reactivate an Email accout" without contacting "Customer Care"

      Please create a button or link to directly "Reactivate an Email account" without entering into "Customer Care" pages.

      Every time I tried to to access my e-mail Inbox (after successfully log in into Yahoo), I see the error message "Continue reactivating your account by contacting customer care.", and the URL shows "URL reason=REACTIVATION_ERROR".

        • Fix Auto Suggest

          Since you won't let users opt out of your auto suggest feature, then FIX it! it currently does not suggest contacts from my contacts list, but instead suggests obsolete e-mail addresses from very dated e-mails and unrecognized e-mail addresses. This bug creates a very serious risk of mis-sends.

              I can't delete a msg using the trash can icon when the body of the msg is shown . Instead ,I have to close the msg and delete from the inbox list. What is the point of having a trash icon on the msg body if it doesn't work?

              • Personal and business email

                Why does my business email, when replying, attach my personal email? They are COMPLETELY different and very frustrating when I don't want business people emailing my private email! This needs to be fixed QUICK. Also, why is there no PHONE NUMBER we can call to actually talk to somebody? I've been using yahoo for over 5 years and never had this issue until now. This needs to be fixed! It'd be nice to actually talk to somebody.

                    • The save and delete functions are not working properly within e-mail

                      When you save or delete e-mails now the functions aren't working as they should after you compile a search list:

                      1. Deleting - messages should stay deleted but they reappear in the search list within seconds of deleting them.
                      2. Saving - messages should automatically be moved to the area you want them saved in (i.e., a folder the user created); however, they still remain in the inbox instead of being moved to the folder.

                      Yahoo Mail used to perform these functions without much of an issue occurring; now neither one of the functions are working properly.
                      I don't want…

                      • DELETE keeps not working!!!!!

                        I take my time, I get a LOT of junk that I want to delete, I check maybe 30 messages at a time. Half of those times I go to hit the delete button only to find it either "greyed out" (so I can't click on it) or unresponsive....I click, nothing happens. Tried to instead use the "move" feature and move all the checked mails to the trash folder. No luck, let's me click but with no response. I reload the page, all my check marks are gone. I start over, first batch of 10 (starting slower this time) works....or…

                          Turkish character encoding problem still exists in emails at web view. it's been months and this unicode stuff hard to solve for even yahoo? Changing encoding from browser does not help. I am thinking about changing my email provider although it's been years with yahoo.

                          • auto-suggest

                            Auto-Suggest works on and off for my e-mail account. My browser (Firefox 44.0.2) is Java-enabled and updating Java did fix the auto-suggest problem once, but now I'm up to date with Java, so there is no new version to go to. Can you please take a look at this?

                            In spite of what some other users have said in this forum, I LOVE auto-suggest. I do e-mail correspondence for a couple of local service organizations with hundreds of members. There is no reasonable way I could keep track of all those names and e-mail addresses! Auto-suggest is a huge, huge…

                            • Fix the freezing that happens when typing in Yahoo Mail. I am sick of it.

                              I don't know what you are doing to mess things up but it is horrible now. I can't even compose or reply to an e-mail without it constantly freezing. In my mind if we can't compose or reply to an e-mail then why do you exist. Please undo all these horrible changes. And the "no ads fee of $50" is something you will never get from me. I will leave Yahoo first. I can't help but wonder if the ads are causing the freezing in hopes we will pay the money.....not going to happen with me. I will leave Yahoo…

                                  In the last couple weeks, something changed, which has caused downloads to fail more often than not. It says "An error occurred while downloading." If I forward this e-mail to my gmail account, I can download the files, so it seems nothing is wrong with the e-mail itself. The error occurs somewhere in the process of actually downloading the file. At first, I thought it was an issue with the file names. The files that failed often had unusual characters in the file names, but I recently tried and failed to download a file whose name was composed entirely of…

                                    • Problems with Drafts within conversations

                                      I did not have this problem until the new yahoo mail update came in last week. Every time I look back to reply to a conversation via e-mail, it will have my response int 2/3 incomplete draft forms within it and not my actual response until the very end! I have to trash each one of those "drafts" that shouldn't even be drafts to begin with. it's frustrating, annoying, and confusing. Anyone else having this issue?

                                      • I cannot make my business email address as default sender in new account

                                        I just created a new yahoo account and did verify my business address completed. I tried to choose my business address as default sender address then press save button but it didn't work. The default send also still is yahoo.com.

                                        I guess it is a bug.please fix.

                                          They delay access to email because they take so long to load.
