  2. add an option to add an email link or basic content to a new event to follow up.

    Some emails require some research to get back to the sender. Such an email can be tagged to to do or an event in your scheduler to schedule the calendar to get back to them at a later time

    Hi there,

    You would need to make sure that notification on both the Yahoo app and the mobile device are turned off. You can check this within the settings of the app.

  4. Length of time for keeping emails in In Box

    I keep certain emails in my In Box that I prefer to keep for more than 6 months and they disappear. I cannot find them. Only one month at time will be retained in my In Box for some reason. I want the option to choose how long to remain in IN BOX.

    Hi there,

    Emails will not disappear as long as the account is active.

    If you are noticing that emails are being deleted this could be due to how the account is being accessed outside of yahoo.com or the Yahoo App.

    We see this when a 3rd party email client such as Outlook or a stock mobile app is being used.

  5. Do Not Delete ALL emails without warning user

    I hadn't logged into this account for a while as it was getting bogged down with junk mail. However, my grandfather just passed and I had a lot of photos here as well as years of emails. I logged on to find out Yahoo deleted all of this history and memories. I understand wanted to clear space but you have my phone number and other email. Why wouldn't you warn me? This is so disheartening.

    Hi there,

    I do apologize for your loss. Unfortunately when an account has not been accessed for a period of time it will become inactive and the contents removed.

    By signing back in you did reactivate the account but those previous contests are gone and cannot be recovered.

  6. Allow MS Outlook to download email messages & leave them on the server.

    Just started receiving these messages when attempting to download my email messages using MS Outlook 365:

    Task 'Bill Tan Investments - Receiving' reported error (0x80042104) : 'Your email server does not have the features required to allow messages to be left on the server.'

    I have two accounts that won't work now. This is new; in the last week AND IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GET ANY ANSWER FROM YAHOO UNLESS YOU PAY FOR IT! F that!

    I can read & send email via browsers or iOS however I cannot download messages from the server. I prefer to save my important messages…

  11. You win - I cannot work with this ****** client any longer - Yahoo Mail sucks the life out of me

    I give up - you win. You lose a customer. I've been using Yahoo Mail for 15 years .. and every year you guys around with it and make it worse. I see hundreds of messages telling you how badly you rmail system sucks - and you do nothing
    I just lost 2000 messages because your "Move" option does not move anything - and your "Delete" option does not move messages to the Trash. I don't know WHERE moved or deleted messages go but it is NOT to a chosen folder or to Trash
    I will next try to forward

  13. Change the name that appears on my outgoing emails

    There is no way for me to change the name on the outgoing emails from our Yahoo Small Business account. I've tried all of the ways that the support team have given me, which look like they work until I send an email and the recipient still thinks they are talking with my boss instead of me. Solutions on the support site either don't work (https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Yahoo-Help-Community/ct-p/english), or are broken links (https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Tips-and-tricks/Sent-emails-show-wrong-name-in-Yahoo-Mail/td-p/445701/jump-to/first-unread-message). I'm pretty disappointed in this service that as far as i know we are paying $70 a year for.

  15. Create an event from an email message

    Enable the easy creation of an event from an email message. From an email message, I should be able to click a "Create event" button that creates a calendar event using the message body as the event info. I can then add/adjust the date & time, reminders, etc.

  18. Wrong Years on search results

    When searching mail - by Starred, sent, etc., the returned list is in year groups, but each group has the WRONG YEAR as its header. My 2019 emails are headed 2018; 2018 mails are headed 2017 and so on. Shouldn't be hard to fix.
