  1. Allow for recovery of erased emails from back-ups

    Please restore old emails! No notice given; have been on yahoo mail for 20 years; emails from deceased parents with family history gone! It would be a great option to have ability to recover erased emails from back-ups. I use Yahoo email for long-term content & historical tracking, with other email for day to day and another for work. Yahoo's unilateral decision to erase my data has left me at an extreme loss!

  4. LOOKS LIKE YOU ****** HAVE FINALLY MADE VERIZON/YAHOO E-MAIL EVEN SHITTIER THAN OUTLOOK! TWICE NOW, WHILE CHECKING MY INBOX IN MID-SENTENCE,

    You ******** REALLY need to find something to do, other than trying as hard as you can to make Yahoo e-mail as ****** as possible! THREE TIMES NOW, when I've been right in the middle of reading an e-mail, the screen would suddenly flip back to the ******* Login screen--so I have to drop everything and SIGN BACK IN, just to show that Yahoo IT idiots know how to make it as ****** as they can. Just go back up to the roof and snort some more lines, instead, or maybe get busy popping each others' ZITS--BUT LEAVE THE *******…

  5. Reply cannot remove original sender

    When reply or reply all, the senders and recipients auto populated in TO and CC cannot be removed.
    The remove "x" button is there but clicking does not do anything.
    If you add new recipients, those can be removed by clicking "x"
    Something is wrong with the auto populated To and CC

  7. STOP having the 'make more room' ad EACH time I look at my mail. If not, I will not find it hard to use another mail service.

    you have me "X" out each time I see each one of my emails. Each time. SO if I have 100 emails..... I do not wish to pay for my email to have 'more room'.

  9. When I review emails, a popup asks if I am searching for something. Extremely irritating and time wasting.

    in the past week, when I start reviewing emails a popup comes up and asks if I am searching. I turn off the popup and keep reviewing incoming mail. This wastes my time. I contacted customer support and they said it cannot be turned off. I have Yahoo+ and I think this is the best product you offer. There should be a way to turn this popup off because you just turned it on a few days ago.

  10. Create different colored stars

    I would like to create different colored stars so that I can keep things in my inbox but separate them at a glance. For instance I keep my bills starred in my inbox until they are paid, but I also run a business and star them as well for other reasons. If I could pick the color of my star it would be easier to differentiate my emails until they are filed in their respective folders. Thank you, Lesley

  11. captcha

    Stop the incessant "Prove you're not a robot" Captcha requests at sign-in! I have not had any recent security issues or entered incorrect passwords, which are your supposed reasons for these annoying and time-wasting requests.

  12. Yahoo is no good, period. Worthless, viral infected site. Spend 20 minutes composing message, then suddenly vanishes. Yahoo Co. is corrupt.

    Totally wasted, infected site. I compose a message for 20 minutes, and message is erased; it vanishes! I have no trust in Yahoo, as I have never and will never have trust in this 7th grade educated, 100% viral infected site. Yahoo is NEVER TO BE TRUSTED. Do not use Yahoo for nothing, as they are a nothing site. What a pathetic waste of time. DO NOT EVER TRUST YAHOO, FOR IF YOU DO, THEY WILL DISSAPOINT YOU EVERYTIME. What a wasted, busted, ripoff company. You are no good to anyone; just another crooked, scam ripoff company. Nothing good about…

  17. Dynamic date separators: option to supress

    I find them pointless (there is a "date" column for a reason) and a waste of valuable screen real estate. Since it has been six months since the last thread on this subject was closed, I am re-submitting the request: give us a options setting to shut this "feature" off please.

  18. Let user spam filters sending spam straight to trash override your filters putting them into spam for users to move to trash

    Your filters to move spam to trash do not work. Fix them. Expand blocked emails to 10000. You ask for feedback but do nothing with it. Things remain the same

  19. enable finding number of messages in yahoo mail inbox, sent box, etc., currently unavailable

    Simply show the number of emails in the Inbox, Outbox and other boxes when cursor is on the designated box, without having to go to settings, which currently does not offer that option. Currently the settings do not indicate an option to find the current number of emails in the various mail boxes.
