  1. Improve the Block function

    The block function should not take two (or three) steps to complete.
    If you select "block" for a specific e-mail or spam communication, it should block it and not allow anything further from that domain.

    Why have the users to send future e-mails from the sender into the spam folder when they should be blocked fully?
    If the blocking function is supposed to block unwanted messages, then let it do it's job as (I'm assuming here) it's supposed to do?

    Why would I (or anyone else for that matter) want to continue to receive anything that has been flagged as…

  2. Allow Block to block email addresses by domain or wildcard instead of the complete email address.

    Block by domain name and not by the complete email address. The spammers can use the same domain and keep changing the sender name infinitely. So block by domain. Would be much more effective.

  4. Please make Top results optional or remove it all together

    Even if you only make it optional please do something about putting the Top Results in my search isn't actually helping me. It makes the reading of my emails much more difficult. Most of the time the Top Results have nothing to do with what I am looking for.

  5. STOP the Pop Up Warning for 'Less Secure Sign In'

    Please STOP the constant pop up warning (on my desktop webmail) regarding sign in for less secure third party apps. I know I am using a non yahoo mail app on my phone and I will continue to do so, despite your warnings.

    The repetitive warning is **** ANNOYING, so please turn it off. I know what my preferences are and I don't need to be asked to change them 6 times a day!!!!

    Yahoo's refusal to assist certain other third party apps with the security protocol changes is arrogant. Yahoo will NOT force me to use the Yahoo mail…

  6. Give options for deleting items in "Trash"

    Let us have options on how often to empty trash and base it on the date the item was put in trash!
    Don't delete items in trash based on date received - base it on date placed in trash. If an item is inadvertently put in trash that is old and you were saving it it disappears immediately because it's older than the last trash "dump."

  7. Ads Make Writing Emails Extremely Difficult

    I am working on transferring my accounts to another email server because reading and replying to emails is near impossible due to the ads. My computer (all of the computers I use) slow down dramatically because of the constant reloading of ads on the right hand side of the screen.
    Please consider changing your advertising format or make "Yahoo Mail Classic" available again.

  8. 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??

  9. Allow disabling of spam filters or allow POP3 downloading of all e-mails (including 'spam')

    I prefer to download all my e-mails via POP3 and deal with spam at my end once they are downloaded. The Yahoo mail spam filters have too many false positive filters for my liking. A long time ago you could turn the spam filters off. This was great. Then you decided to remove that option for some unfathomable reason. But that wasn't the end of the world - there was a work around with filters but then you disable that. Still it was OK POP3 downloaded them all so it only affect me those rare times I used webmail. Now…

  12. Please provide a better, more efficient way to manage email filters

    The purpose of Yahoo filters is to clean your Inbox and stay organized. With Yahoo! Mail Plus, you can create up to 1,000 filters that tell incoming messages what folder to be delivered to using certain criteria. You can even direct unwanted email to Trash.

    With this feature where the order of the filters matters, it is important for the user to prioritize their filters from top down. Without an efficient way for users to manage their filters, how then are we supposed to do that?

    The current filter view/functionality presents challenges for the following reasons:

  17. block entire domain

    We need the block function to be more clear. For example, if I un-check "Send all future messages to Spam" does that mean it will automatically delete any email received from a blocked sender? Or does that mean it will just let the email go to the Inbox?

    Secondly, we need the ability to block an entire domain. If you're less technically inclined, that means I need the ability to block everything from the part of the email address after the @. So let's say I get a bunch of messages from different people but they're all @loseweightfast.org. I need…

    We appreciate your feedback on this option. Checking the ‘Send all future messages to Spam’ should cause emails from that sender to be directed to your Spam folder. Unchecking that option should simply block the address.

    It is also possible to block a domain. This can be done by accessing your blocked list within the settings menu. Please take a look at the following help article for more information:

    http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN16025&locale=en_US&y=PROD_MAIL_ML

  18. Interface Language

    You should add back the option to change languages and content into account settings. Not being able now to change the language is so anoying. For example, even if my ip address is different from the one I've created my account, and my yahoo mail language is one I've selected a few years back, the yahoo content page and the mail app dosen't change the to the current location, as i read in yahoo help. so please put back the option to change the language and also the yahoo content. will be very helpful. thanks

  19. automatic videos

    Automatic Videos: Dear Yahoo Mail, please ***** right off with automatically playing videos when my mailbox is empty. There isn't a human alive who actually wants this feature. It is insanely annoying, especially when I'm at work. This one "feature" and the fact that there is no way to opt out is a solid reason for me wanting to drop my yahoo account entirely. I mean seriously, every time the video pops up, I get a tad murdery.
