  1. Remembering passwords issues

    My phone is linked to my email accounts to protect my email from hackers. My problem is having to change my password too many times, when yahoo is supposed to remember it, since I clicked remember me. Yet it fails to do so. If it says remember me, and a phone number is attached to the account, it should only go to that phone to send the code to gain access to the account. Not have to keep resetting the password.

    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.

  7. Yahoo mail is so slow

    Yahoo mail is so so so slow on my computer. I've been using my college email address instead (gmail) because it works so much better. However, now that I am about to graduate I have been using my yahoo email more - but it's just so frustrating how glitchy and slow it is. I really do not want to have to get an entire new email address (I would definitely use gmail if I made a new one) but if this isn't fixed soon I'm not going to have a choice.

    Hi there! In order to protect all users, we temporarily block sending on accounts that are flagged with spam-like or suspicious sending habits. For more info and tips on how to avoid this in the future, please review this article: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN3406.html

    You will need to reset your password and wait for this block to expire. It usually takes 24h to have this block removed, however make sure you’re not trying to send any messages during this time.

    Hope this helps!

  11. Please restore my emails

    All the emails in my sent folder have disappeared overnight. Please restore them as the history they contain goes back more than 20 years. I have not deleted anything from my sent items. I have tried to report this issue by submitting a request, but there is no way to explain the specifics. Please help, my emails are important to me. Thank you.

  12. Emails deleted

    Everything is gone... all gone... all the love letters from my to-be-husband... emails from my now-deceased mother... a decade or more of my life... deleted.

    And no warning, no restore options... just purged. Why do this with no notice?

    I stayed loyal through all these years, even when everyone said Gmail was infinitely better. I hated the inbox makeover, but still stuck with Yahoo.

    Now this? It's the last straw.

    Google may be an evil monopoly, but Yahoo deserves to go out of business for this.

  18. Contacts will not sync to phone.

    My contacts will not sync to cell phone. I put a message here and they closed it out and deleted it here. Customer service finds it easier to just delete problems, act like they fixed it and ignore the real problem. I am done with everything yahoo.

    Hi there. If there’s something unusual about your sign in or recent activity, we’ll ask you to go through another verification step after you’ve entered the correct password. This helps protect your account from unauthorized access. You may be prompted to get a verification code on your Yahoo app, recovery phone number, or recovery email address for any of the following reasons:

    Yahoo notices suspicious account activity.
    You’re using an unfamiliar browser or device.
    You’re traveling away from your usual location.
    You sign in while using a VPN or a proxy server.
    You’ve logged in with a private or incognito window.
    There are many attempts to sign in with incorrect passwords.
    The “First time signing in from this device” message appears.
    You’ve cleared your browser history or data cache including cookies.
