  1. Please get rid of mobile view and "apps". They're terrible! Put back the desktop view for my phone.

    I would like to see the option to go to desktop view and not default to mobile view on my phone, or any other device. I won't use the app either. I hate apps. And I loathe anything in mobile view. It's slow, doesn't load, I can't always click on and view my messages, and the options are severely limited. Icons are in strange spots and in order to know what they do I have to click on it and see what happens. I would prefer if they were left as words that say what it does. This isn't B.C.…

    Lists that are created on a computer are not available for use in the mobile app, which is very frustrating.

  8. Android app "actions" don't actually do anything!

    Marking messages as read, moving them into folders, and even starring them - those are some basic functions of daily email use. So one would assume that the actions you take actually work.. right? NOPE!! At first I thought it was just the read/unread thing but it has turned out to be every action I've tried. The only way for me to actually make anything happen is to access my account on the web.

    Detailed example: Mark new messages read, then refresh. Same messages are unread. Check unread folder and messages are there. Select messages to mark read - but…

  11. Get rid of Smart View in Yahoo app for Android and bring back Contacts.

    I really dislike that there is not a standalone CONTACT list in the new Yahoo app. No, someone thought it would be brilliant to have Yahoo save EVERY contact from EVERY single email sent or received, whether the user wants that contact or not.

    I changed my notifications setting on my phone so I would only get them when someone from my contact list (which is an actual 48 if I look on my laptop) sends me an email. However; I kept getting notifications from non-contacts. When I looked in the Yahoo app for Android's version of contacts "People under…

  15. Can't send replies to emails from app anymore

    Can't send replies to emails anymore, they just go into the outbox and even hitting the resend button doesn't work, they just won't send. Have to log into browser and use desktop view to reply. Defeats the object of having the app don't you think!

  16. Well I can't seem to complete a throught without it disappearing to you. I would like to know why I can access previous mail. <,

    Please incorporate our old SAVED email with current. Mine was for a criminal investigation. I finally found the saved mail but could not save to hard drive or forward. You can only view but do nothing with it.

  20. Possible Security Loophole with the Yahoo Mail App

    Hey, the Yahoo Mail App has a security problem with my Xperia ZX Premium running Android 7.1.1. I have turned on the "require PIN to unlock" function of the App. But if you just ignore the prompt and press the home key when being asked for the PIN and then switch back to the APP (sometimes you need to repeat this several times), you can by-pass this PIN requirement and get directly to the mail list !! It is totally ridiculous. Please have it fixed very soon!!
