This forum is for you to make product suggestions and provide thoughtful feedback. We’re always trying to improve our products and we can use the most popular feedback to make a positive change!

If you need assistance of any kind, please visit our community support forum or find self-paced help on our help site. This forum is not monitored for any support-related issues.

Tell us how we can improve your Yahoo Mail experience. The more specific your feedback, the more useful for us. While we can’t respond to every suggestion, we review regularly and take them very seriously. Our Guidelines have more on how you can give great feedback.

The Yahoo product feedback forum now requires a valid Yahoo ID and password to participate.

You are now required to sign-in using your Yahoo email account in order to provide us with feedback and to submit votes and comments to existing ideas. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.

Tell us how we can improve your Yahoo Mail experience.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  3. 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.

  4. "beta" login that rolled out last week doesn't set focus on the user name field

    Within the last week or so, when visiting https://mail.yahoo.com, I see that there is a new login screen. The url includes the word "beta".

    There's a bug in the new login screen though. The user name field doesn't automagically grab the focus. I have to tab to the field or use the mouse to click on the field to grab focus. I think y'all ought to make a simple unit test for that so you don't see the same regression in the future.

  5. Autosuggest function

    HATE the autosuggest function. I can't even write an email, so I am not going to my Yahoo email until you remove it. I could not even find out how to turn it off.

  7. Dear Sir/Mme, I have an idea for Yahoo emails. I suggest that the emails after they are sent to the recepients, they get double check marks

    Dear Sir/Mme,

    I have an idea for Yahoo emails.
    I suggest that the emails after they are sent to the recipients, they get double check marks. In this way, the sender of emails note that after they are read or seen by the recipient of the emails; right like the Whats App and other Apps alike.

  8. Why do I have to sign out twice?

    When I forget to click for the second time to sign out, someone else can just log in to my account. That's just stupid. i don't have time for this. Please change it back.

  10. Ask before auto-saving drafts

    I recently lost a long draft when I accidentally hit a key that deleted the whole content and closed without realizing it. If I had been asked "do you want to save?" (like in the previous version of Yahoo), I would not have lost hours of work.

  12. Why will you not disable the pop up "turn off less secure access to your inbox"??

    I totally understand the risks after 100 days!!!!!!!!!!!! Why do you think I forget that I clicked on this the day before (or an hour earlier)? Do you think I'm stupid!!!! It's to the point where I am seriously considering discontinuing my Yahoo account. I know Yahoo is "not cool" anymore but I've had this account since about 1999 or so.

  13. "Looking for something" popup

    Please add a setting that allows users to toggle on or off whether they want the "Looking for something?" popup to appear. I don't want to have to close it every time it appears. I don't want it to appear at all! Ever!

  15. I'm trying to set up a filter/rule to automatically send a copy of emails received from a specific email address to my husbands email addres

    I'm trying to set up a filter/rule to automatically send a copy of emails received from a specific email address to my husbands email address. I don't want to forward all of my emails (he is really not interested in my sewing and crafts emails). Having the ability to set up individual filters/rules would be AWESOME!

  17. 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
