    Verify that you have the exact address in the blocked address field. Also keep in mind that emails filtered as spam will bypass any filters on the account and go straight to the Spam folder.

  5. Stop blocking emails that I need!

    How come Yahoo is blocking all emails from my church? I do not have them in my "blocked domain" list. As of June 22, I haven't received any emails that I NEED to get from them. I contacted my church's IT department and they informed me that Yahoo is blocking all emails from the domain churchofjesuschrist.org and that they are in negotiations with Yahoo. The emails aren't even showing up in my spam folder. You'll allow horrible emails to go to my spam folder such as "get harder," "love sexes," hot single asian girls, etc yet you won't allow me…

  6. Deleted ALL E-Mails from my DEAD DAD After Inactivity

    I would love if I could access all of the e-mails I received from my DEAD DAD. However, they are ALL DELETED because I was "inactive" for too long. WHY is that your decision to make and not mine?

    Hi. We are sorry to hear about your loss! 


    If an account is unused or dormant for 12 months, it is deactivated and its emails are deleted, more info here: help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN2018.html Once emails are being purged during the inactivity period of the account, they are deleted from the servers as well. 


    While your recent login reactivated your account, the data deleted is not recoverable. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you! 

  7. change our profile names when we change them on the settings

    It would be less annoying if your personnel could really update the names on our profile whenever we sign back in. I have changed my name since I got married but my ex's name still coming up as my profile name whenever I send out an email

    If you got married, changed your name, or just want to reinvent yourself you can easily do it in Yahoo Mail by changing your sending name, that is displayed to your recipients when they receive an email from you.


    1. Sign in to Yahoo Mail.
    2. Click the Settings menu icon | More Settings.
    3. Click Mailboxes.
    4. Select the account you want to edit.
    5. Click under 'Your name' to delete or edit your sending name.
    6. Click Save.

  9. scroll bar on email list and inmail are there but doesn't function through rolling key of the mouse.

    I could see the scroll bars. It's not functioning. I am unable to scroll pages up and down through my logitech mouse. Earlier, when you click on the bar, it scrolls up and down but now you have to click on the scroll bar tab and drag up and down. This happens only on Yahoo email list and detail email body pan.

  15. I'm unable to forward some important emails to my family members.

    There was some important update from my insurance company and I was unable to forward the same to my family members. There is this warning symbol in pink triangle mark popping up "An error occurred while sending the message". Even two days back, an email reply to already conversed recipient in the past didn't go through and pop up message like "it looks like spam". Pls avoid such pop ups.

    To protect all users, we temporarily block email sending on accounts that are flagged with spam-like or suspicious sending habits. If you're seeing "suspicious activity detected" or "account temporarily blocked from sending messages", you'll still have access to your mail and receive messages while you wait for the hold to expire.

  16. Incorrect Weather Location

    Weather location is wrong. It detects my San Jose, CA location correctly but place me in New York when the page is refreshed. This happens with every machine and browser I've tried.

    It can be frustrating when websites don't work the way they're supposed to. If you're unable to access a Yahoo website, but others load just fine, you may be experiencing a DNS issue.


    What is a DNS?

    DNS stands for "Domain Name System." It's a necessary part of accessing the internet. When you type the name of a URL into your browser bar, a DNS will translate that address into a numerical IP to connect you to the intended site.


    How do I resolve a DNS error?

    Try accessing the website on another browser or device. If this resolves the issue, you'll just need to make sure your preferred browser is supported and updated to the latest version.

    Try accessing the website from another internet connection. For example, if you've been trying to reach the site on your Wi-Fi connection, switch to cellular data on a smartphone.

    If the troubleshooting…
