                  I was happy all over these years with my yahoo mail service it was reliable and really easy to use and readable .. the new yahoo is pure junk ... the People behind this junk should be executed ... how can you put something like that Live without ever testing it with the public is beyond me.... I have trouble moving my e-mails into other folders ..
                  and also I have a problem signing out , your designers carefully put a bug it it so we could click on the adds behind the sign out window what a cheap move…

                          • Yahoo mail freezes when previewing attached images

                            When I try to use "View All" to view images attached to a message, Yahoo mail freezes. I have to load Yahoo mail in a new tab to recover from the problem. On the very same computer and browser, my husband's Yahoo mail account shows none of these problems. I tried to clear cookies and cache, but the problem persists. Help!

                            • Why am I not receiving emails from Instagram?

                              Instagram is making me reset my password and the only way I can do it is through my email because my facebook isn't connected with instagram. The email won't send to my account and that means I can not use instagram until is sends! It has been a whole day and I keep trying... it NEVER works!

                                I can not check my mail. I get error messages that it can't connect. Ever since Marissa took over as CEO, the Yahoo website is the most buggiest website with many many problem that used to not happen. I am about to leave yahoo forever. I don't want to but it is becoming impossible to use email. I don't like the new conversations and wish the email was like it was pre-Marissa

                                    I've been having problems with yahoo mail for quite some time now where the program has to close and re-start again. VERY FRUSTRATING. Need a solution fast or I have to use another program.

                                      the receiver do not receive the mail and mailbox owner also unable to receive the mail from the other sender.
                                      It is really trouble and not reliable.
                                      Please work it up as the mail is really important for the live nowadays.

                                      thanks.

                                      • Problem opening mail

                                        Can't open most of my mail. I either get a message saying that there is a problem opening OR it tries to open and sits there churning!!!!!!!!!
