  1. 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.

    • 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…

          • 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…

            • Turkish character encoding problem still exists it's been months

              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…

                • Slow when typing - please stop lag

                  When I type the body of an email message in the yahoo email web page and even in this form to provide feedback, the typing experience is super slow! It seems like the application is trying to check everything you type as you type it. I have often resorted to typing emails in notepad and copying them in to the email. I'm sorry, but this is not useable for a someone who can type at a fast rate.

                    • download

                      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 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.

                                  • Change Yahoo Nickname

                                    We should be able to change our yahoo nicknames. Yes you can change your name in account info, but I believe that you should allow everyone to at least change their nicknames once. And you should not have taken away the ability to change profile pictures. It is very irritating to say the least. Please make these changes, it would make a lot of people happy.

                                      • I could not successfully add Gmail to my Yahoo box

                                        After I added my gmail, it's always in "pending" status. I tried "Sign in to Google", but got "unable to reach server" error. I had no internet connection issue because my gmail was signed in within another tab with reading/writing emails working properly. So I removed the gmail. But the removal is not complete. The status is always "disconnecting" under Settings->Accounts.

                                        • trouble actually reading my emails

                                          I am having trouble reading my email messages, period. It keeps saying the email won't load. Why is that? and please do fix it because I've gotten into the emails on my phone so it's obviously something wrong with your main site. Please fix it now! That is a huge problem.
