  1. as of this morning 9/20/2016, email contains only the subject line and am unable to view the entire message.

    Change the email back to the format from yesterday. This is intolerable.

    • Delete

      Why is Delete so unreliable? I delete dozens/hundreds of emails just to have them show back up again.
      Delete on my Android Samsung S6 literally never works. They ALL show back up again. I can now only delete from my PC and it is also unreliable and common to have a series of emails show back up again. This completely waste my time. Considering abandoning yahoo email.

      • 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…

          • 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…

            • 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…

              • Paragraph seperations gone

                (9/7/16) Starting about a week ago, my new e-mails and replies began looking very sloppy because I can no longer make paragraph separations. No matter how many spaces I may "enter" between paragraphs while composing, they are always eliminated when I send. This makes for a very sloppy and unprofessional looking e-mail to the recipient, and does not look like what I composed. I have begun starting my new e-mails and replies with a preemptive apology for the weird appearance. All the internet buzz says that you guys have caused this problem. PLEASE fix it soon. Thank you

                            Here's a bright idea. When someone drags and drops files, maybe attach them rather than putting them in the body of the email. And while you're at it, maybe when someone actually goes through the effort to attach files to their email, ATTACH THE FILES TO THE EMAIL. If there's one thing people hate, it's wasting their time having to do something twice.

                                    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.

                                          We're sorry, but it looks like there might be something wrong with the settings of the external account tnorl1. Please check your Yahoo in Settings and try again.
                                          How can I solve this error message?
