how do i get full featured mail. I don't have a gear icon to change.
I don't have a gear icon in the top right corner
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
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!
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.

Yahoo has become less user-friendly - what's going on?

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’’.

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

HOW TO instructions
I desperately need to change the signature on my outgoing emails, as the information is out of date. However, the instructions I have found to do so don't make any sense. They tell me to click on things which aren't there. For example, "go to settings and click on accounts"... But Accounts is nowhere to be seen.
To change the signature on webmail go to Settings > More settings > Writing email > Signature
Search. I search for a specific word and I get all sorts of random email that doesn't even have the word in it. It's basically USELESS.

Creating mailbox with different domain name extension. Using email alias not working.
You can create an email alias, by going to mail.yahoo.com-Settings-More Settings-Mailboxes-Email alias.
This solution was not working. Gave me error of "sorry ******.com is unavailable"
Even though, I can login by using *****@yahoo.com, but no mailbox for "com" only "ca" mailbox.
You’ll need to create a different email alias.
