  1. No more video ads!!

    I am close to switching to another email provider because yahoo mail cannot keep up when I am typing an email. The video ads slow down the service so much that every other word is omitted from my emails or I have to sit and wait for the service to respond in mid sentence. I, and I am sure most users, will not pay for an ad free service in 2016. There are plenty of free email providers that do not have video ads running in the background! Therefore, if you make me switch then I also would not be…

      • I need to download a large number of emails to/from a couple different people for a lawsuit.

        I need to download all emails with several people for a lawsuit. I cannot figure out how to do this. Even if I select all the emails, I cannot print them at one time (to pdf or otherwise) there has to be a way to save all emails by contact.

          Thank you for your post.

          It is not currently possible to download or print multiple email simultaneously at this time. While it will not help you at this time, we will keep your idea open for future development consideration.

          Thank you!

          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.

          • 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.

              • 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…

                  • 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 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…

                            You made a recent change where you automatically play videos when one empties the spam or trash folders. I don't mind you showing videos that I may choose to play. But please don't start a video assuming I want to watch it. I find it annoying!

                            • 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.

                                          Please remove the Looking for something help pop -up when viewing emails its driving me crazy. I'v tried moving it several times and it wont. 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. At least give us the option to close the pop-up bc I can't stand it anymore blocking my emails
