  1. Yahoo mail search broken

    My yahoo mail search is not working for over an year now. Only I know how I am surviving with this disaster having my yahoo mail as a primary email. Now this problem is unbearable for me. I don't get any search result for any search query. Please look into this problem and please fix it as soon as possible.
    Thank you!

    • Let people take email addresses with 3 characters after the dot like john.doe@yahoo.com

      When someone tries to register a new email address, there's a limitation -> you have to have more than 3 characters after the dot, so emails like john.doe@yahoo.com are invalid. And people that have short names can't get the email address they want.

      here's the screenshot to show the error message when I try to get an email address

      • SO SLOW and UNRESPONSIVE!!!!!!!!! STILL PAINFULLY SLOW!!!!!!!!!

        Don't give me any ******* work arounds. FIX IT! It use to work fine. Then you rolled out an "upgrade" and broke it. That is on YOU! It is not my responsibility to jump through a bunch of goddam hoops to make this usable again when YOU are the ones that broke it.
        I use this email for work and this is killing my productivity and ability to communicate. So slow. And I have to re-enter my password multiple times a day. The piece of **** timed out and asked me to re-verify right when I was in the middle…

        • PLEASE DO NOT GROUP UNRELATED EMAILS FROM DIFFERENT SENDERS!!

          I hope this is a bug, but atm my mail box is grouping emails from different senders which has similar subject lines. Please fix this, grouping on conversation is excellent but this is not one conversation, it is three different ones!

            • 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.

              • 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.

                  • 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.

                      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?

                        • 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…

                            • 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…

                                  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.

                                    • Unwanted folder not needed

                                      Please tell me how to stop emails from going to the Unwanted folder. I already have a Spam folder so I don't need emails I want going there.

                                        • 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…
