  2. You people are amazing, stop screwing with things we use everyday like email I'm ready to dump your *****.

    Put the sub folder option back in the older email version. Nice of you to delete it and then want to charge us $4.99 to get help to figure out what the **** you did with it. You people need to leave well enough alone. We use this email system daily. Thank you for making life just a little bit tougher. IDIOTS!!!

  3. Report Abuse, hotmail has a function to report abusive email.

    So that yahoo can identify the abuser, and it helps if we have to report trolls or abusive email to police.

  4. I cannot find my blocked list. Also I am very unhappy having to agree that you can store my IP address

  5. Why make a good thing complicated and bad?

    The privacy settings require me to have my phone able to receive messages to access my mail. I travel a lot for work and cannot always receive messages, making it impossible to access my mail while I travel.

    Your computer or browser settings could make it difficult to use Full-featured Yahoo Mail. If your system doesn’t meet these requirements, you’ll be automatically switched to Basic Mail for better performance. More details here: help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN15090.html

  8. Eliminate the link preview when writing a email

    The preview is very annoying and in my opinion unnecessary. I have already turned it off in settings but it keeps popping up. Please eliminate this feature or at least fix so when it is turned off it doesnt show up at all

    Thanks for reaching out. Please go to “Settings” – “More Settings”- “Writing email” and make sure that the “Automatically generate a preview of links” box is unchecked. Thanks!

  9. HKEC

    Why is HKEC on my account? I have never signed up for it nor did I change my settings to APAC. I have changed my password a number of times but for some reason, I cannot remove HKEC from my account and I can not change the region setting back to North America. Additionally, I believe Yahoo has a security issue. Even after changing my password I still get login alerts from other regions. Thankfully I have 2 step varification enabled.

  13. Need to be able to delete connected email addresses from "mailbox list"

    Why can I add emails to my "mailbox list" but not delete them from this list? This went wonky and now emails to each account are being sent to all connected accounts and the recovery account!! What a time consuming mess.

    You can remove a mailbox , by going to a laptop/desktop computer, click Settings-More Settings-Mailboxes, click the account whose mailbox you want deleted from the current list, then on the right menu that opens, scroll down and click ‘’Remove mailbox’’.

  16. You can put the "block" function back in the "more" options. Sorting through all the spam to find personal emails is a pain in the *****

    Easy, . . reinstate the blocking function. How hard can it be? You ask how you can improve New Mail, . . . you have your answer !

  19. Settings wheel is gutted out - no access to block or unblock adresses

    Setting used to allow us to access a settings area to block email addresses. It is no longer there . Seriously, WHAT happened to the Settings wheel >

    This is what a Yahoo Help online tells me, yet it is not there where I mouse over it. What is up ????

    "Mouse over the Settings menu icon | select Settings. Click Blocked Addresses"---not there. Just color background choice, and few other tidbits. Just like a kindergarten version of former Yahoo.
    I am looking around for a new provider.

    Once you log into mail.yahoo.com from a desktop browser on the right side of the email page you have the small house icon, also known as the Home icon. Under that icon is a gear icon with the word Settings written next to it. Click on it and select More Settings > Security and privacy > next to blocked addresses click the Add option.

  20. Forgotten to change phone number but won't let me change it.

    I would like to change my phone number but it won't let me. It won't allow to change it, because I don't have the old number anymore and had forgotten to change it before I lost the old number.
