        Hey, Yahoo looks a little different today, with all my folders listed on the left all the time again. And it's not slow anymore!! Whatever you did to improve speed and make my folders visible again, thank you!!!!!!

      • anonymousanonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Whenever there's update, same issue. This time it won't even allow me to get back to Basic loader - which works! Yahoo - stop updating and upgrading - why fix what works! All the previous updates made the mail worse. If I wanted the look of gmail, I wouldn't be on yahoo. Please please stop what you are doing. No more changes!

      • Hugh DingleberryHugh Dingleberry commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Same here, but we can't say customer service is awful, because there needs to actually be customer service to call it awful. There is none.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It happens intermittently, which is infuriating. Two weeks ago I got no e mails between 2 p.m. and 7.15 p.m. Suddenly they all arrived, one of them too late and all of them tiresomely late. This is no service.

      • mikemike commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The old Yahoo always worked. With the new one about one in ten email will not load or will not send. It will frequently time out. I have no add ons loaded. Basically the new improved Yahoo mail is slower and works worse.

      • David BakerDavid Baker commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Nope - done all the things recommended in your "advice" above and it makes no difference whatsoever.

        For example, why might I have to press the font button several times before there is any response? The same with the "text colour" button... It's like they don't work properly.

        Also trying to do anything with "contacts" is hopelessly slow - that section is almost unusable.

        I know you think people won't switch because of this, but, believe me, we will. An e-mail service that doesn't work is an e-mail service that isn't worth being part of.

        Thanks!

        The cursor takes few seconds to move when typing a letter. ALL buttons SLOW to respond. Pls bring back the stationery features. Sorry to say that Yahoo Mail is getting from BAD to WORSE!

        Why is your answer to every problem to read the help article, half the time the help article is totally unrelated to the problem.

      • CDCD commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Seems to be a problem here. I have also been experiencing painfully slow response times on buttons. Emails load fine, but delete, move, spam etc. buttons take 20-40 seconds to respond. Very frustrating, and I am apparently not alone. Please look into this.

        To whom it may concern:

        I have a fast 25mg per second download internet connection, I have NO problems bringing up the Yahoo login screen or any other webpage. This is NOT a problem with the add ins.

        Is there ANYONE STILL WORKING at Yahoo EMAIL that can PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS ISSUE? For many weeks, I log into Yahoo email just fine, especially on Monday mornings. After taking a look at my new emails, and scrolling down, I select those emails I want to delete. Within less than five minutes of logging into my Yahoo email, I find that the "delete" button isn't working.

        This is irritating because I just spent a minute scrolling down my inbox and selecting new emails I want to get rid off. I click on the "delete" button again and again, and nothing happens.

        The only way to get the "delete" button to work is to log all the way out of Yahoo, close my browser and reopen and then log back in. The "delete" button works for the first 3 minutes, then somehow my connection to Yahoo email SSSSLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWSSSSSSS SLOWS WAYDOWN.

        WTF? Why after logging into Yahoo email, my connection seems to go from 60 mph down to 3mph?

        Is the NSA deciding that they have to have 10 different copies of every single email in my inbox? Is that what's been causing the slowness? It's like there is some sort of huge traffic jam EVERYTIME in the morning, especially on WEEKDAY MORNINGS, when I log in and all of a sudden my Yahoo email connection SLOWS WAY DOWN.

        Recently, I called my internet provider and complained and they reset/refreshed the settings, but a few hours later and the next day, I still have the SAME OLD PROBLEM.

        What is going on? Why when anyone logs into yahoo email from outside of Yahoo's offices, why is the connection so **** slow? This has been getting worse over the past year.

        Please someone do something this! If it's the private intell agencies and the NSA, tell them, look I don't care if they want to monitor everytime I go to the bathroom, or open up an email, but this scary survelliance stuff is ridiculous. WE didn't need it before 9/11, why do we need so badly now? This is so nuts, people like me giving up their civil liberties for supposedly "more security" and basically we're at the point where the gov knows when we to sleep, to the bathroom, who we sleep with, what we read, what we watch on TV, where we go, who we hang out with, etc. It's so not their business.

        Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to post this comment.

        If i type for more than 3 minutes....the mail won't send. just a spinning circle. i have to constantly copy my text, reload the page, paste it back in and send. using my old version on firefox is basically fine....using the new version on chrome is horrible. there are many many other glitches that basically make it impossible for me to simply open and email and reply in 'normal' time....just not going every one of those details. i'm giving this 30 more days before i delete my 4 yahoo accounts.

        All bottons are extremely slow to provide the intended response. I am on MAC OSX 10.6.8 using Safari. It has become unusable. I suspect something to d with Java incompatibilities.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        When in the **** is Yahoo going to quit playing around with the emails? I can't get anything to open and if I try it take at least 15 seconds or longer to open. When I try to open one e-mail another opens instead. Whoever is screwing up the system needs to stop - if you can't fix it call someone in that can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        How yahoo mail become so slow? I use safar, I believe that is not caused by my browser.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I am using the latest Chrome since it updates on its own and I also use IE10. Yahoo e mail is slow, and I get my e mails hours late sometimes. The buttons in yahoo mail dont always respond. Whats the deal with Yahoo. I just need basic e mails. Also, e mails that I have deleted or updated, still show up as I type peoples e mails into the bar. Why would deleted e mails come back or appear. I have already created another google e mail account. If this isnt fixed soon, I will have no choice but to migrate to google. Just give me basic e mail. Get rid of all this other **** that is slowing down our e mail.

        What's going on with Yahoo Mail? Everything is so slow lately, and I keep getting "connection error" messages. My Internet connection is fine (as everything else is working). I find it difficult to read my emails, to reply, or even to send emails as I keep getting 'time-out' or 'connection errors'. Very disappointed... I feel like I'm back in the dial-up era, as I'm waiting for things to happen in Yahoo mail.
