  1. 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.

      • change Yahoo email so Pop download again marks messages as read on the Yahoo server after downloaded in Outlook, Apple mail, etc

        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.

        • 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.

            • 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…

              • 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

                    • 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.

                        • 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…

Its annoying because it blocks emails we are trying to view. Please help thinking of going with gmail only because of this annoying pop-up that wont move or leave.

                                  I'm getting SPAM from Sandra Ring, at the rate of one daily. The SPAM is from list_support@ with a different domain for each email. Enable blocking by Username or part email address, like list_support@*.*. Other spammers use the same domain with different username, so enable blocking eg *@domain.com.

                                    • Hello, Why in the webmail I can't select and delete only messages from 2 days ago?

                                      For exemple: Today is Monday, and I received many e-mail in friday, saturday and sunday, and I want to delete only messages from the friday, but I have to select one by one. You can insert the chekbox in the space that separate the day of de other.
                                      For exemple, if I want to delete messages only friday or saturday, I select this checkbox and my webmail select only messages these day!
                                      Thanks

                                          When forwarding an email with multiple copyholders, the new email should show those copyholders so the recepient can see who was originally copied. Interestingly, this works when I use my iPhone to forward an email but not when I use my laptop. Gmail and most other providers have this simple feature...am surprised Yahoomail does not?
