  3. keeps deleting emails that I haven't read

    When going through my emails I always mark as read before deleting them. Have noticed more and more emails being sent to trash that I haven't read, but have seen in my inbox. No idea how they are getting there. Really frustrating as I have to go through my inbox and trash folders just to make sure I've not missed anything. Will have to move to Outlook. They don't seem to change format ever 2 minutes and I don't have this issue there

    Please check the filters on the account to make sure there isn’t one set up that might make your emails go to the trash folder: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN15994.html

    In case you do not have any incoming mail filters set-up on your Yahoo account, please check the incoming mail filters, and junk mail filter, in the mail applications that you are using (e.g. Outlook, Mac Mail, Windows Mail, Thunderbird, mobile email application).

  4. I need to know how to delete contacts in my list

    My list of contacts won't come up after clicking on list. Many friends have died. and I'd like to remove them from the list. How? Please send info on clearing out the list of contacts.

    When I login to Yahoo email, I am always prompted to provide a phone number so that I do not get locked out. I am never going to provide a phone number. Is there any way to stop having that prompt ask me to provide a phone number for recovery? I would rather not share my phone number.

    Hi there,

    This prompt will never stop as long as a mobile number is not listed on the account. We do required that an account have a valid mobile number listed in case the account does in fact need to be recovered. Currently when a new account is created a mobile number is require otherwise an account cannot be created.

  8. Viewing sorted emails

    I used to be able to sort 'sent' emails by 'recipient' (used it many times). Then one day it was not there anymore. Please give it back.

    Hi there,

    The option for sorting your inbox are:
    - Newest on top
    - Oldest on top
    - Unread
    - Starred
    - Sender

    These are the only options we currently have for sorting he inbox.

    Hi there,

    We see a few reason why emails may be deleted. One, the customer has deleted or whomever has access to the account has deleted those messages. Two, the account has not been accessed for 12 months or more and will be deactivated deleting all content. The third and most common, a 3rd party email client is being used such as Outlook or the stock iOS app on a mobile device.

  10. Why does my settings not have the "basic" option for yahoo mail

    Improve the setting icon to include "Basic" or Classic" for mail

    Hi there,

    Within Yahoo Mail the option to switch to Basic is still there. Once you click on the gear icon you will need to now click on more settings. You will see the option to move to basic on the left-hand side bar.

  11. After 18 years with Yahoo account, cannot attach/upload photos from PC.

    Although, for a completely unknown reason, as I did nothing differently, one photo attached a week and a half ago. I have no other devices. Just the PC, and a digital camera.

    I keep trying everything available to me, and I did read that it was now necessary to use the Yahoo app, but I have no device(s). I also do not have live interaction ability via computer. Why it attached the photo the other week, and hasn't since, is a mystery.

    Sending out one photo every couple of weeks is important to me. Thank you.

    This is a reminder of the Yahoo Data Breach Settlement. If you previously filed a claim, please do not file an additional claim.

    If you had a Yahoo account anytime in 2012 through 2016,
    a pending class action settlement may affect you.

    A Class Action Settlement has been proposed in litigation against Yahoo! Inc. (“Yahoo”) and Aabaco Small Business, LLC (together, called “Defendants” in this notice), relating to data breaches (malicious actors got into system and personal data was taken) occurring in 2013 through 2016, as well as to data security intrusions (malicious actors got into system but no data…

  14. Don't roll all the messages into one

    This new Yahoo mail STINKS. It's just like GMail, which I won't use for the same problem. I hate how email threads are truncated and I can't get back into them. I use Yahoo to plan weddings and I need to be able to see ALL the prior emails from my clients. I also hate that the emails are no longer sorted by date. Whose idea was this and who thought it was a good idea? On top of that, I can't even vote for all the other people who feel the same way. Yahoo, you BLEW it! Thank God…

  15. One click select for a whole month selection will facilitate deletion instead of tedious one by one

    At present I have too many emails piling up and yahoo's new way of not removing ticked individual mail is a great idea but if you also permit one click to select a whole month, it will facilitate my removing unread and unwanted emails.

  16. Stop forcing users to enter mobile numbers

    Forcing a user to enter their mobile number for "account recovery" is not a good practice in my opinion. I don't want my phone linked to this account, or any of my accounts in general... won't be using Yahoo mail anymore.
    Also, your continuous scroll Homepage is clunky - it feels heavy and dated. Good luck.
