  1. disposable email issue

    The disposable email address domain (yahoo.com) is different than my account email domain (yahoo.com.br). Before, they were the same, but after some upgrade to the webmail it changed. Now I can create disposable email (some time before there was an error message) but even informing both domains I never receive a message. This makes the new disposable email useless. Still receive messages for the old ones.

  2. More consistent sync between desktop mail and app mail

    Desktop and app mails need to be more consistently in sync. Every so often, like this week, after I cleared my mails and junks in the app, I have to do exactly the same thing when I logged into desktop mail channel because all the deleted mails and spams were still there.

    And the spam filter needs to be more consistent too. Some weeks I got very few spams. Some weeks, like recent few weeks, I got so much spam mails that I wonder if someone at Yahoo just quit, leaving the spam filter unmanned.

  3. Yahoo STOP asking me to Manage accounts when I login

    Yahoo STOP asking me to Manage accounts when I login each time?? Its such a PAIN. I DO NOT want to add, switch, remove my accounts. Do not try to control what we want. STOP it. Remove that Stu** feature. NOT NEEDED. Or at least give an option to OPT OUT of this feature.

  6. URGENT - Fix inability to create new alias address

    I can't create new alias email adress since days. Unknown error is the message I got. Same problem with Chrome and Edge, even after the cleanup you suggest to do in your so called help pages. You don't even allow users to write a request for help, so I had to post this request here. Please note that the alias address is the only one standout feature yahoo offers over gmail. Please keep it working.

  8. Why do I get "554 5.7.9 Message not accepted for policy reasons." when emailing Google Maps directions to myself?!

    The other part of the error message is "See https://help.yahoo.com/kb/postmaster/SLN7253.html "; that help page is for bulk mailers whose emails get rejected from Yahoo addresses. It is not helpful to me at all, for I am not a bulk mailer. All I want to do is email *one set of road directions* to myself from the Google Maps website. Why is it Yahoo "policy" to block an email that I want to receive so much I'm sending it to myself?!

  9. Recent bug in subfolder naming

    Yahoo mail no longer allows subfolders of the same name accross parent folders (this used to work fine). e.g.

    FolderOne
    aaasubfolder

    FolderTwo
    aaasubfolder

    When creating "aaasubfolder" under FolderTwo, an error pops up saying the subfolder name already exists. A different name must be used, for example "aaasubfolder2"

    Subfolders under different parent folders should be allowed to have the same name.

  10. Your "New Mail" is so bad that if i weren't already a Yahoo account-holder, i'd have nothing to do with you.

    Mail finds a message i'm searching for - AND WON'T SHOW IT TO ME!! Nor is there any help available. What a time-wasting crock!

  11. new email version not working well (no print option on my platform); old email delete message function now not working well.

    A few weeks ago, I started having problems in old email version deleting messages. I used to be able to select a collection of messages and delete all with the delete button in the top menu bar. Now I can't do that regularly. So, I moved to new email. That version doesn't have a print option anymore on the ...more drop down menu. Yikes. What's going on? I've gone back to old email, but it's quite distressing having the old one starting to malfunction and having serious flaws in the new option. I don't want to change email providers, but…

  12. Please attend to this.

    1. E-mails does not print.
    2. Attachments does not open - have to send to gmail to open from there.
    3. When backspacing text to correct, the whole site freezes, refresh, start from a blank page tab and eventually when it is back I have to go to Drafts and I have to start from the previous saved point - WTH????
    4. Can not access the settings menu - just hanging all the time.
    5. NO PLACE TO ACTUALLY SEND A MAIL TO YAHOO AND NOT SOME SORT OF PREDETERMINED OR PRESCRIBED LIST - we want to be able to…

    3- when sending an email to more than a person, in the previous email look it suggests the people to add automatically. now this is not happening

  14. Printing functionality -- Giant X and printer icon at top of printouts

    When trying to print an email using the printer icon at the top of the message, a giant "X" and a huge printer icon appear at the top of the print window, with the message below it. The X and the printer icon each print out on one page. A simple email uses three pages of paper to print.

  19. No new disposable Emails

    No new disposable Emails creatable

    I am using the German Yahoo (.de)

    Starting some months ago in the old Yahoh interface new disposable mail adresses were created using .com instead of the normal.de endings, but couldn't be used.
    Now in the new interface it says .de would be used again, but they do not show up in the list of adresses and do not work either.

    Please fix this soon!

  20. It's a little obvious when the Redirect is called "Upsell"

    https://mg.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch?reason=IMAP_UPSELL_PAGE_EMAIL

    Hey Folks,

    If I have used a Gmail account that I dont want to import into Yahoo, don't strongarm me with a forced redirect that literally contains the word "Upsell". You also leave me NO option to just use the Yahoo mail without integrating my Gmail into Yahoo.

    Thanks, but no thanks.
