  3. Am I supposed to get ads in the right column with a Business account?

    I pay for business e-mail, which I thought was a premium service. Why do I still get ads in the right column?

  4. I cannot log automatically onto my laptop, I have to get authorisation via mobile everytime! So time consuming

    Automatically link emails on all devices when security has been confirmed instead of constantly asking for proof of ID every time!

  5. Unlinking Yahoo mailboxes

    1. This company clearly values profits over its customers and it shows.
    2. If you have a problem which they have not addressed in the FAQ's there is absolutely no way to talk to them without paying. This is ridiculous, as it is not uncommon to do this, as their FAQ's are not extensive. This is the stupidest and most harmful policy to customers, and I can't believe that any company would be so callous towards the needs of its customers.
    3. I have an issue which is not addressed in the FAQ's: my boss and I's mailboxes are linked, so it is…

  10. How long emails stay in trash.

    I may have deleted an email that contained important information. I don't know, because I can't tell how long it is until my trash folder gets cleared. I would very much like to change this in settings. For example, I would set it to delete emails after they've been in there for a month, so if it takes me a few weeks to realise I've deleted an important email, I can still get it back.

    By default, both the Trash and Spam folders empty automatically to keep your account tidy. You cannot change the Trash and Spam settings.

    Trash deletion frequency – Trash is deleted after 7 days.
    Spam deletion frequency – Spam is deleted after 30 days.

    When you send an email to another person, the name that shows on the account is called the Sending Name. This is different than an account’s Display Name or Nickname, which shows in the top right part of the screen when you’re signed in.
     
    The Sending Name for the account can only be changed from the desktop web version of Yahoo Mail, and not from a mobile device. Follow these steps below to change it.
     
    In New Mail:
    1. Sign in to Yahoo Mail.
    2. Mouse over the Settings menu icon (Gear) | select More Settings.
    3. Click Mailboxes.
    4. Click on the Yahoo email account.
    5. Enter a new name in the “Your Name” field.
    6. Click Save.

    In Classic Mail:
    1. Sign in to Yahoo Mail.
    2. Mouse over the Settings menu icon (Gear) | select Settings.
    3. Click Accounts.
    4. Click on the Yahoo email account.

  19. Need to make it easier and more direct to remove blocked addresses. The Settings menu is more interested in graphics than actual settings.
