  1. 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…

  2. 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. 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…

  5. Provide actual customer support.

    Customer support is imposible to reach. The link provided in comments in this feed does not work, it just sends you in the same circle. Like so many others, I cannot access my account nor do I have the telephone number or email originally registered. How can I get actual help getting back into my email?

  8. 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:

    • Trying to sort…

  12. Please put the classic mail version available

    Please guys.. many of us people are dissapointed by the new version.. andit's not just that we are used to the classic version.. it was simple, straight, elegant.. and most important.. practical and useful.. I know Yahooo tries to improve, but.. why have a Microsoft Outlook clon as mail system? When MS "upgraded" to such version I mocked at them iand was glad that my yahoo mail was perfectly working, even that I also have a MS account....Now, take a look at both and you can not distinguish from each other. please give yahoo its own identity.. and think of…

  16. What's with the ridiculous lag caused by Yahoo Mail?

    While Yahoo!'s online mail service has always been somewhat ad/spam/malware intensive, for about the last three weeks it has become almost unusable. It causes all other services on my machine to lag and hang. The only solution is to log out of Yahoo! entirely. This happens regardless of which browser I use.
    Unless this gets fixed, I'll have no choice but to move to an alternate email service. Unfortunate, because I prefer Yahoo!'s layout.

  17. Re-enable importing emails via POP

    On April 1st, Fools' Day, the new updated version of Yahoo mail will not support the import of emails via POP. Sounds like a Fool’s day joke, please fix it for the rest of the year.

  18. Show that emails are in your spam folder

    The old email format showed that there was emails in the spam folder. The new version does not do this. It is very annoying to have to check spam periodically for emails. Please fix this!
