  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.

    please change Yahoo email back so Pop access again marks messages as read on the Yahoo server after downloaded in Outlook, Apple mail, etc. etc. Or put an option in Yahoo so folks can set the way they need.

  5. I want my previous Yahoo mail please.

    I want to go back to the previous version, the one with themes. I don't like the new kiddie version made for tablets. I only use a desktop and the previous version was perfect for my needs. To not offer a way back is lame as ****.

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  9. Change Base name from being permanent!!!

    Please change base name for disposable email addresses from being Permanent. I was trying to set mine up a little bit ago so I can have one for different places. I thought I was suppose to put what I wanted it to be not just the beginning. So I made mine SFBShippingEasy for my shipping easy account. Now I can't change it. I didn't realize I should have only put SFB. You should make it where you can change it say once every 90 days or 1-2 times a year. Anything but permanent. Peoples use for email sometimes changes over…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. Your new version of Mail stinks!

    There isn't even an option to block and remove SPAM emails in your new version of Mail. I went back to the old version but now it is VERY slow and locks up my computer. I always hated all the SPAM I get, even though it goes into the SPAM folder, I still have to deal with it and delete it. I have had it with YAHOO! I am giving up on Yahoo Mail and going to Hotmail!

  14. 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."

  18. 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…

  19. 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??

  20. Disposeable addresses doesn't work anymore !

    For all user on yahoo.fr when we try to create a new disposeable addresse, on the previous Webmail these aliases are created with "yahoo.com" instead of the usual "yahoo.fr".

    Unfortunately, theses addresses don't work, we can't use them.

    With the new webmail, we can see that "yahoo.fr" is back on the form used to create a new disposable addresse, but the Add button don't work, we can't create a new addresse at all.

    This feature is extremly important to me, actually I started to use YahooMail because of this feature, so please find a way to fix it, I don't…
