Disposeable addresses doesn't work anymore !

For all user on yahoo.fr when we try to create a new disposeable addresse, on the previous Webmail these aliases are created with "yahoo.com" instead of the usual "yahoo.fr".

Unfortunately, theses addresses don't work, we can't use them.

With the new webmail, we can see that "yahoo.fr" is back on the form used to create a new disposable addresse, but the Add button don't work, we can't create a new addresse at all.

This feature is extremly important to me, actually I started to use YahooMail because of this feature, so please find a way to fix it, I don't want to migrate my 300 addresses to a new system...

We posted an error about it on the french Yahoo VoiceUser but it seems nobody cares : https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/904765-new-mail-fr/suggestions/31446967-impossible-de-cr%C3%A9er-de-nouvelles-adresse-mail-temp

I tried on 3 version of Yahoo mail and even in the old old one it doesn't work :
- Oldest one : https://ibb.co/hY90ok : show an error
- Early 2017 : https://ibb.co/hyyMuQ : create a yahoo.com alias that won't work
- Summer 2017 : https://ibb.co/eMRkM5 : the button "Enregistrer" don't create the alias

Thanks !

    I contacted them on Twitter, they replied : "Thanks for your insights. We are aware of this problem with disposable addresses / international domains in the New Mail version. For now, the only workaround possible is to create them from Classic Mail."

    when I add a new disposable address, it shows as .com and not .co.uk why has yahoo changed my setting without informing me, Thanks yahoo for all my problems I now know why I am not receiving all my mail.

    Je suis également un fidèle utilisateur des adresses jetables depuis de nombreuses années; ce que je trouve très pratique en particulier pour protéger mon adresse sur les sites marchands et identifier ceux qui revendent leur fichier et nous polluent avec du spam.
    J'ai également constaté l'impossibilité de créer des adresses jetables actives en .fr depuis plusieurs mois.
    Le forum vient de me faire découvrir qu'elles sont créées en .com.
    Par contre bonjour pour se souvenir quelles adresses sont en .fr et lesquelles sont en .com.
    Il faudrait que Yahoo soit permette la création d'adresses jetables en .fr, soit duplique en .com toutes les adresses antérieures qui sont en .fr

    After the sorting by a seemingly random order, then the inability to reuse the correct disposable address as the identity in a reply...

    This problem is another occurrence of something that has been working perfectly fine for years which has been changed for no apparent reason to something that just does not work.

    Good news, addresses created with yahoo.com are now working.
    But we can't do it on the new webmail, we need to stay on the previous version. The new version still show us the "yahoo.fr" suffix and the "Save" button don't create the alias.
