  5. Customer Support Phone #'s to speak to a real tech support person

    There are no phone #'s that are available or an email address that I can find to speak to a real person about a problem I have. Yahoo , you should all be ashamed of yourselves for such ****** customer service to your users. There is no excuse for this! I have a real problem that I need taken care of and am unable to talk to anyone due to your ****** customer service. If there is anyone from yahoo that reads this please email me so I can take care of this problem.

  6. The new procedure to send a 'code' to my 'alternate email account' is problematic. Can't see it! Signing in to another one. Stupid!

    I cannot see the 'code' you sent to my alternate email when I am in the middle of signing in to another one. This is silly! I used my password and that should be enough!

  8. SMTP Logins constantly fail with Thunderbird

    Dear supporters, i face issues every now and then (very frequent actually) sending emails via Thunderbird on OSX, while receiving emails in the same session never fails. Error message always indicate login issues. But logging in to web UI and sending from there then always succeeds. Is there anything i can do about it via my configuration?
    Would be terrific!

  16. When I travel to Thailand (3 times per year) I use my AOL account to get your confirmation mail. Now AOL is doing the same thing. I cannot

    I have a premium account with Yahoo. I travel to Thailand 3 times per year. On every trip I am required to confirm by getting an email at AOL. Now AOL is doing the same thing. I spend over 13 weeks per year in Thailand and cannot login.

  19. Password

    I should not have to change my password. This is something that should be up to me if I want to keep the one I have. This is just really a way to try to get my phone number by saying if I forget.
