  1. If I typo an email address, please allow me to correct it with the cursor, instead of making me re-type the entire thing!

    I used to be able to move the cursor to correct a typo in the "To" line, but now as soon as I'm done typing, it automatically highlights the address and does not allow changes. I have to delete the addressees name and start over. Why is this??

  3. What is going on with Yahoo Mail? Tons of glitches...

    1) I'm often getting a blank colored screen instead of my inbox. I'm having to restart/refresh the page or Yahoo Mail altogether to get it to work.
    2) Operating very slow to open and pull up my emails.
    3) BIG DISAPPOINTMENT - since whatever "update" has recently occurred, along with the above problems/glitches, I now no longer can have access to previous email addresses that I send to regularly (or have sent to at any time in the past) by simply typing in the first few letters of the email address in the "TO" field. Now when I type in…

  8. Old deleted emails keep reappearing in bulk!

    This is driving me nuts - every five minutes or so, I'll suddenly receive a batch of emails, usually around 10 or so, that have been deleted months ago. They always reappear with a new "time received" even though they were received (and deleted) months ago. It's enough to make me want to swap back to hotmail or gmail ...

    This happens on my laptop and on my tablet. Not so much on my phone now, but it has done on my phone before as well.

  9. 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.

  13. I always have 1 new email showing even after I have deleted ALL my emails.

    Even after I have deleted ALL my emails in my inbox, it shows that there is 1 new email. I have restarted, rebooted, nothing gets rid of the numeral 1 next to my email. This all started right after you changed and put the archive button where the delete button used to be.

  15. The search function on my inbox is not reliable. When I search for messages that are clearly there, it does not always find them.

    Fix the email search function, which is not working reliably for my account. It does not always find messages that I can see in my inbox list.

  18. Please sort disposable addresses wherever they appear in Yahoo Mail Plus.

    Yahoo Mail Plus previously sorted disposable addresses, for example, in the Settings Dialog (Security section). Another example; disposable addresses should be sorted in the From address pull-down menu.

    If one has many disposable addresses (as I do), it's extremely difficult to find a particular address whether one wishes to edit the address settings or to select a From address when composing a new email.

    thanks.

  19. Temporary Error: 19

    Having no access to my mail is very frustrating and is destroying my productivity these past 2 days. Before this error code happened I had limited access to my mail as it was. If I scrolled down to look at older mail my inbox would disappear and I would have to refresh the tab entirely to get my messages back. I could only read a couple at a time and then have to refresh. But now with no access I cannot communicate with contacts or confirm the e-mail for new sites. I can't get to vital information being forwarded to…

    Your spam blocker has decided that I can't send out photos EVER. They aren't inappropriate photos. It's my kids and my dogs. And I'm sending the photos to my mom! Since when is that spam?
