  1. Return back 'Move to Folder' option for 'Disposable Addresses'

    I have a huge number of 'Disposable Addresses'.
    And for each of them an option "Move to Folder" had been set which put every 'Disposable Address' email to its folder.

    !!! Now there is no such option in 'Disposable Addresses' !!!

    Yahoo Team automatically tried to create an individual Filter for every 'Disposable Addresses' "Move tp Folder" option I had before.

    But... As I can understand the number of Filters has a limit.

    I gues so because when I try to create a new Filter (Add a new filter) I get a warning message "Sorry, an unknown error has occurred.…

    • My email continues to have issues Loading. Cannot load my list. Cannot load my message. I've tried using your HELP section. Does not help!

      This has gotten ridiculous. I've been having issues with my inbox loading and then when/if it will load, issues with the individual messages loading. This has been going on for over a week now. I've tried to use Yahoo's help section, but it's useless. Someone needs to figure this out. I actually need and use this email account.

          • 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

              • Make your program work. That would be a good to start!!!

                Get someone who REALLY knows how to make email programs work. Maybe someone from Google or MSN or something like that.

                • 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 the unread message bug

                        Messages that have been read and marked as such are being changed to unread by the hundreds. It's highly annoying to have to go back and manually mark them as read, especially since the "Select All" button no longer selects all but only 50 at a time.

                        • Serious IMAP issue with mismatching UIDs

                          I'm an email client developer and I've had several users for which some emails cannot be fetched via IMAP. This happens because my email program, MailMate, detects a serious problem with the UIDs reported by the server.

                          This is quite technical and I strongly recommend forwarding it to the people responsible for the IMAP server implementation.

                          Here is an example log:

                          ...
                          19:42:20 S: * 375 FETCH (FLAGS (\Seen) UID 230986)
                          ...
                          19:42:20 S: * 6825 FETCH (FLAGS (\Seen) UID 256492)
                          ...
                          19:42:21 S: * 26825 FETCH (FLAGS ($NotJunk) UID 311649)
                          19:42:21 S: E7 OK UID FETCH completed

                          • 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 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.

                                        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?

                                          Header no longer side scrolls, and Feedback/suggestions is no longer a link on most other Yahoo sub pages... beyond that Comments are becoming less and less common as this new 'Infection' of a reformat hits more and more pages...

                                          FIX IT...

                                          again I'd have complained elsewhere but you removed the links on the problem pages
