  1. Receiving emails from the equivalent .com domain

    I have an email address ending .co.uk. This means it is impossible to create or receive emails directed to the .com equivalent address. Previous answers posted from technical support do not work. Maybe these are old responses aimed at a previous version of yahoo.

    Hi there,

    Within Yahoo Mail the option to switch to Basic is still there. Once you click on the gear icon you will need to now click on more settings. You will see the option to move to basic on the left-hand side bar.

  4. My email notifications Sucks

    My email notification is turned off and I never turned it on in the first place, however I am now getting notifications. --- Yahoo needs to fix this.

    Hi there,

    You would need to make sure that notification on both the Yahoo app and the mobile device are turned off. You can check this within the settings of the app.

  5. Length of time for keeping emails in In Box

    I keep certain emails in my In Box that I prefer to keep for more than 6 months and they disappear. I cannot find them. Only one month at time will be retained in my In Box for some reason. I want the option to choose how long to remain in IN BOX.

    Hi there,

    Emails will not disappear as long as the account is active.

    If you are noticing that emails are being deleted this could be due to how the account is being accessed outside of yahoo.com or the Yahoo App.

    We see this when a 3rd party email client such as Outlook or a stock mobile app is being used.

  6. how about letting us BLOCK domain's

    how about letting us BLOCK domain's like "eadmitberry.com" instead of the whole email address of "newletter@eadmitberry.com"

  7. Allow me to turn off the news notifications

    2 days ago, I started receiving a news notification on my cell phone through my yahoo email. I do not want to see these news updates. It's all doom and gloom. I'm halfway intelligent and if I want to read news about the virus, I'll go find it myself. I do not need it forced upon me! So, how do I turn off the news notifications? Thank you.

    If you are currently using the newest version of the Yahoo Mail app, you are able to disable these notifications. Click your profile picture, click notifications, and turn off the coronavirus updates option.

  11. Please give me an option of when my trash folder will get emptied.

    I use my yahoo email for business. I sometimes need to go back to my trash folder and it unfortunate when the email I need is older than 7 days because it is gone.
    Please give me an option of when that folder will dump or a choice of how long it automatically dumps.
    PLEASE!
    Thanks!
