  1. Add Islamic & Arabic (Lebanese) holidays to the calendars. it is so sad that almost all other major ethnicities Religions are covered.

    Yahoo MUST Add Islamic & Arabic (Lebanese / Middle Eastern) holidays to the calendars. it is so sad that almost all other major ethnicities & Religions are covered. But no Arab or Islamic ones. I am christian Catholic Arab, and I vote to add the Islamic Calendar to ensure all inclusion and respect to a HUGE percentage of the world's population.

  2. Allow people to send calendar invites from any of my email addresses/accounts.

    Right now I am forced to use my original email to send all calendar invites from rather than select from my business account. When sending an email, you are allowed to pick from all accounts; this should be exactly the same.

    As an freelancer this is very unprofessional and forces me to find another calendar solution. I would much prefer to use Yahoo as I have the small business email and web hosting through here. I am considering changing if Yahoo can't fix this calendar issue.

    I have seen many forums where users complain about this issue as well as…

  7. Have a separate platform for constantly on email apps and still use 2-step verification or account key

    I use Yahoo mail constantly and I do care about my security, too. Outlook is an everyday part of my life that I use almost every hour for calendar and tasks not just email. So, the app itself is perfect to keep all emails, calendars, and tasks altogether. However, I can't use Yahoo mail in my Outlook app and have a 2-step verification or Account Key at the same time. Is there a way to keep both? I have to choose between either one because having Yahoo mail on Outlook requires me to turn off the corresponding settings. I'm only…

  8. 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??

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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

    Why not have one color theme where I get to choose the colors - perhaps by color map or by RGB value. My system can display millions of colors and you give me 6 to choose from?

  15. 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."

  20. 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…
