  1. 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.

  3. Tired of deleting emails you don't use?

    Tired of deleting emails you don't use?

    The above message greets me every day when I access my Yahoo Mail. I'm then presented with a list of addresses, and asked to mark the ones I no longer want to receive email from.
    The problem is, it doesn't matter what I do here, I'm presented with the same message the next day.
    This happens day after day and it's very annoying.
    Surely there's a way to prevent this from appearing all the time.

  4. Make the Spam folder searchable

    For the purposes of Search, please treat the Spam folder like the Trash folder: allow it to be specifically specified to be searched in, but do not include it in the list of folders for the default search. In other words, if I leave the location as "All" then right now the Trash is not searched - but if I want to search Trash then I can. Please do the same with Spam. As users have notes in Yahoo Answers,, there are hundreds of email in the Spam folder so we cannot search it manually. So please allow us to…

  5. Paul Hasak, turn off less secure access to your inbox Please disable non-Yahoo

    Stop getting this annoying pop up every time I open my email:
    ................ turn off less secure access to your inbox
    Please disable non-Yahoo apps that use less secure sign in methods from accessing Yahoo Mail. Not doing so may leave your account vulnerable to compromise. Learn more.
    Turn off access
    No, I understand the risks

  6. I find it very frustrating how when I'm in an email and want to go back to list view, the system moves me to the top of the list.

    It's crazy how when I'm in an email and want to go back to list view it defaults to the top of the list. It makes it nearly impossible to review and clear out emails in a long list. If this isn't fixed I'll have to switch email accounts

  8. The new yahoo mail is terrible. I want the old version back.

    Please give us the option of either choosing the new or the old version. I'm not alone. Everybody I talk to is just as unhappy with the new version as my wife and I are. We hate the new yahoo mail. please reconsider. We might have to start using another company.

  12. I want my previous version of Yahoo mail back.

    You changed the Yahoo Mail version without asking. It is harder to use. Can I get the previous version back?

  13. Terrible "Contact Us" options

  14. Ads should NOT play audio!

    My idea is....DON'T AUTOPLAY ADS! Or any video for that matter. If I want to watch a video or a commercial, I'll click on it. And no, I shouldn't have to go to the ad and click on the X every **** time I look at my mail. By that time, the sound has already blasted into the office or wherever I am. This is so rude and believe me, isn't making me want to purchase whatever it is they're selling.

  15. Use labels instead of folders

    Use labels instead of folders

    I strongly believe that Yahoo should allow us to use labels instead of folders for e-mails, like Gmail does.

    Labels do provide a lot more flexibility, as it is possible to assign multiple labels to an e-mail.

    With Gmail, every e-mail that comes in gets the Inbox label assigned to it, meaning it will show in the Inbox view. It is possible to create rules that assign additional labels to incoming e-mails.
    For example, assign a label called "Family" to e-mails from family members. Incoming e-mails from a family member will show in the Inbox…

  18. Email has become VERY slow

    I have used Yahoo mail for decades, it has NEVER been so slow. Now I know why, you have allowed us to be monitored by many, many trackers. Even though I can block them, it still slows down my mail and causes it to malfunction. It has only gotten worse the past few weeks. You need to find another way to make your money or perhaps I will FINALLY get a new email server.

  19. Allow styles and stylesheets in the head of an HTML email

    Recently Yahoo updated their mail applications (web and native may both be effected) and introduced an issue that makes it tough for HTML email development.

    Please see this link for more information: https://litmus.com/community/discussions/5836-yahoo-app-no-longer-responsive#comment-9435

    It seems that Yahoo is stripping the <style> element out of the <head> causing issues with media queries for responsive HTML.

    Could somebody at Yahoo elaborate what exactly is happening on your end - and can this change be reversed please? Or can Yahoo provide alternative suggestions to building HTML email in a way that is supported cross-platform?

  20. Bring back the CLASSIC EMAIL FORMAT. The new version is horrible

    Why would you change something so many of your users enjoy. Even though you don't "support it" any longe, it was working fine and the new version is terrible.r
