  1. 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.

  3. Cannot block spam because your block changes the spam email address and inserts a % instead of @. No quality control at Yahoo.

    Currently, you can’t block domains in New Mail. Since spammers use so many different addresses to send junk, it’s best to mark these emails as Spam rather than trying to block every domain. This helps our system block these emails better in the future.

    Our Spam filters override any filters on the account, so if something is deemed to be Spam, it will ignore filters and blocked addresses on the account and go there.

    Thank you!

  4. Help me out here, My password was phished and getting clear instructions to change my password is impossible to find.

    Why do you hide info to change password. When will you learn? I guess you feel compromised accounts is just a feature of the platform!

  5. Stopping **** invites from yahoo groups

    I keep getting invites from Yahoo Groups that are clearly **** related. I have changed the settings on my Yahoo Groups to never receive email invitations, and put a filter or "yahoogroups.com" to put them straight into my spam folder but they still come through. What the *, Yahoo? Stop allowing * to be emailed to me though one of your products!

  8. Stop making changes that force things on people

    Block addresses no longer works and viewing raw messages only works if you open the email. The whole point to viewing the raw message is to track who the email is coming from WITHOUT OPENING IT!! If it is spam than the spammer knows you opened the email. HOW CAN YOU IMPROVE? Stop forcing things on people!!! As you can see by all the feedback, few people wanted these changes you have imposed against the will of the people.

    Hi there,

    To view the raw message without opening the mail, check the box next to the message you wish to view, then click on the ellipsis (three dots) at the top of the message plane (next to “Spam”. From the dropdown menu, select “View raw message”.

    Thanks,

  10. Disposable addresses

    Recently I have tried to add disposable addresses to my account. However the account software has changed my default email address from pns2sw-??.co.uk to pns2sw-??.com. If I use that then when I try to send a mail to that address it does not appear in my in box. I would like to return to using the .co.uk address, but I cannot find a way to do this.

    We no longer offer location-specific domains. All new addresses, including disposables, are created as .com.

  13. blocking unwanted emails

    I recently provided my email address as part of a consumer response, and now I find my email is being routinely spammed daily by fictitious email addresses. These emails are coming from addresses where a valid email address has been hijacked, and the "new" user has simply placed an additional part in the address. Such as Joe.Blow@vresp##.amazon.com or Donotrespond@vmail##.infonet.net. Can you restore the use of the * as a wildcard identifier so I don't have to individually block all these? As in @vresp.. or @vmail... This used to work, but it is no longer recognized…

    Hi there,

    Thank you for the feedback. We will that this into consideration on future updates,

    In the mean time I would suggest mark these emails as “spam.” This will tell our internal filters to block then before they arrive.

  18. "blocked addresses" in "Security and Privacy" settings got lost after op in spam folder

    In spam folder, there is an option to block senders after selecting all the spams. But previous saved blocked addresses is gone after the operation.

    That is, the previous blocked addresses are all discarded, there are only the newly added ones.

    Emails in the Spam folder are not affected by the Blocked Addresses filter. Once an email is classified as Spam, it will go there regardless of any settings on the account. Our Spam filters take precedence.

    For security reasons, it isn’t possible to update or change the date of birth listed on your Yahoo account, even if you entered it incorrectly when you first registered your account. You’ll need to open a new account if you’d like your account to reflect your accurate info.

    Thank you!

  20. Adjusting screen size / percent image size should be added to the end user toolbar.

    Adjusting screen size / percent image size should be added to the end user toolbar, as well as the "undo" button, and the "re-do" button.

    Are the YAHOO software developers reading these recommendations ?

    The zoom setting is controlled by your web browser. Most browsers will indicate what percent zoom you are up in the address bar.

    You can user the keyboard commands to Undo/Redo typing, CTRL+Z and CTRL+Y, respectively, depending on your device.
