Why are there so many temporary errors stopping me from using the programme?
In the last few months, there have been so many errors it's infuriating. I draft a very long email and send it just to find that it could not be sent and yahoo hadn't saved it in the Drafts folder either, so I had to start all over again. That problem has happened on several occasions. Sometimes I can't do a search of previous emails to find the one that I'm looking for which is very inconvenient. Sometimes I have wait until the next day for the situation to rectify itself or i have to scroll through years of emails myself to try and locate the one that I want. Even when the search function is working, sometimes when I try to read a message, it won't load. It says that there is a temporary error and to retry but it still won't load. It takes 24 hours for that error to rectify itself and what do I do in the meantime if I need access to it urgently? These types of problems never used to happen with Yahoo email and now they happen every day. Can you please fix the problem or I'll have to get another email.

APP GENERATOR USELESS FEATURE
Please can someone explain to me why the app generator feature has been disabled? if you are going to do a stupid move like that then you need to open up the less secure feature so that people can continue to use yahoo mail in the mail client of choice.
if you don't know how to do something then dont roll out changes or new features till such time as you have completed you testing phase.29th ranked
Email is screwed up!
You make changes., You cause so many problems. Yes, I have updated to the new email. Now i don't get any emails like I used to from different sites. Want me to sync with google to get my emails. I prefer 2 separate accounts, one for important things and one for family and other contacts. Leave stuff alone or make sure it works like it is suppose too. Geez people. New, improved always means SCREED UP BIG TIME.29th ranked

Allow the generation of app specific passwords or let us log into Outlook with our normal password. Yahoo is no longer an option without it
Allow the generation of app specific passwords or let us log into Outlook with our normal password. Yahoo is no longer an option without the ability to use 3rd party mail programs. This has worked for many years, allowing the generation of passwords, and the online chat agent states it has been removed with no indication if it will be reinstated.114th ranked

Mail characters downloaded at "???" to iOS email
Characters in emails like Japanese kanji or the copyright symbol are being downloaded as "???" in some emails. This is reproducible on both iOS 9.3.6 Mail on an old iPad and iOS 16.3.1 Mail on a recent iPhone. It does not happen with download to Mail on my Mac, or if the mails are then forwarded to my iPhone. I contacted tech support for Innovative Languages who sent out one of the emails that showed this issue and they identified a Yahoo mail SMTP bug referenced here https://www.limilabs.com/blog/yahoo-smtp-8-bitmime-bug Please could you look into this and fix it114th ranked

2 factor authentication codes time out too fast
2 factor authentication failed for my primary yahoo account because the code times out after 60 seconds, but IT TAKES LONGER THAN 60 SECONDS FOR THE CODE TO ARRIVE AT MY RECOVERY EMAIL ADDRESS. Please give more time (60 seconds is too short) for emails to arrive via servers!!! I have now lost access to my primary account because I re-tried the process several times to try to get it to work, but each time the code took too long to arrive so I couldn't enter it before the 60 seconds were up.57th ranked
