Why do I get Captcha every time -- it is a real pain. Your spam filtering is really good, better than my software company

I forwarded mail yesterday and today and both times got a captcha prompt. This is excessive, intrusive etc. If it happened occasionally for a specific user I would not mind.

        It's a pain...please stop it! I can see if I were sending to multiple contacts, but for one person?? Stupid!

        Thanks for removing the CAPTCHA at the Yahoo Game entrance... makes it a lot easier getting in to play.

        This problem just started for my elderly father. He has not been able to send an email for a couple of days now that Captcha is required. He can't see the letters and the audio is too difficult to hear. Why is this feature happening each time he attempts to send an email? How can this be resolved? My only other thought is to switch him to a different email provider. Please advise. Thanks.

        Yahoo has really screwed up the new email in so many ways.
        Is someone drinking up there?

        Agreed... This is REALLY annoying! I was replying to an email a friend sent and I have to verify that I'm not spamming them? Frustrating...

        I am having to do it for new email, replies everything. It really stinks! I have really bad eyesight and the way those codes are make it xtremely hard. I have gotten 1 mail to go through before giving up in frustration. Time to find a new email service.
