    Recently you may have noticed an increase in email going to the Spam folder for senders using Office 365 and other Microsoft products. We are in the process of addressing this issue and expect it to improve over the next several days. Please keep marking the mail in the Spam folder as “not spam” or “ham” and that will help to correct the issue. Thanks for your patience.

  2. Please reinstate Father's Day and Mother's Day to US Holidays.

    Hi Larry,

    We appreciate the heads up!

  3. sso switch between personals and smallbusiness accounts

    I use to switch between my personal email (@rocketmail history brand) and my paid small business accout (@aforsys.com) which was quite easy due to SSO. Ma professional account evolved without any communication nor support. I managed to switch in the PC browser with a bad login/logout cost.
    I'm not very happy the way this Verizon move is managed...

    Yahoo is no longer part of Verizon. For this issue, you'll need to contact the Verizon Small Business Essentials team at https://www.verizon.com/business/small-business-essentials, or call the support number at: 1-833-961-3535.

  5. Feature to block spam email

    Yahoo mail was allowing a person to block spam email on a permanented base. By that I mean I could click on the 3 dots next to the spam link and I was given a choice of a choice to stop these types of emails from being sent to my email address. This was working great and now that feature has been removed. Why? You were able to look at the email ID and or the URL and see that it was going to cause malware. Why was this removed?

    Hi. If the limit of 1000 blocked addresses has been reached, the option will disappear from the drop-down.

    Spammers are constantly evolving their practices and blocking their email addresses does not help, as they are mostly sending emails from spoofed addresses or they send the same content but from different email addresses, which makes it look like they are coming from the same email address.

    Marking them as Spam teaches your personal filter to recognize them as Spam. I'm sorry there is no quick fix for this issue!


  6. Stop cluttering my calendar with ALL of the "special days". I am not interested in them even if you are and they cannot be deleted.

    Just this week (typical) there is "Soverneignty Restoration Day" and "Barack Obama Day on my calendar. I do not want those kind of stuff cluttering my calendar!

    Hi there. In the full view of the Yahoo Calendar, you can unfollow the holidays you do not find relevant for you, by clicking the drop down arrow from the left side menu from the My Calendars or Holidays. 

  7. unsubscribe

    I didn't see this mentioned previously, so here it goes... I have a ridiculous number of emails -- in particular of political ads -- which (rightfully) wind up in my SPAM folder. However, I really would like to UNSUBSCRIBE from these mailings to stop receiving them altogether. The problem: You seemingly cannot click on the "unsubscribe" button in emails sitting in your SPAM box. You have to go through the trouble of hitting MOVE to get the offending email into you INBOX and only then can click on "unsubscribe." Is this something Yahoo can fix, i.e., can you let people…

  8. Contacts listed as potential spam

    I do not understand why emails from people in my contact list are listed as potential 'spam'.
    I get the red warning message on quite a few of my contacts, even ones I email regularly. They are clearly in my address book. I can even edit the contacts, which I tried in order to save them, to no avail. They keep being flagged.
    Then, on the other hand, so many emails that ARE spam, are finding their way into my inbox. Anything that is clearly spam should not even reach a spam folder, it should be stopped right at the…

  9. Changing Birthday

    It is bothering me that I cannot change my birthday. As said in other ideas, I have been using this email for years, it would be much easier to be able to change my birthday rather than have to make a new account and resubscribe and change my emails on many matters. Even if you only have one chance to change it - it would be so much easier!

  10. ymail

    I got hacked on Instagram and the only way to recover my account is from my ymail account. But it was deleted due to being inactive, & I cannot sign up new ymail account also.

  11. reminders

    I see many do not want reminders, however if it is switchable on or off with controls such repeat with a set date or not , it has a value. I need a way or reminder to follow-up on sent or received emails.

    If you’re trying to regain access to a social media account using your Yahoo account, but aren’t receiving the recovery email, you may be using a recycled Yahoo email address. Your old Yahoo account may have been closed due to inactivity, and later that same username became available again for you or any new user to claim as their own. To prevent identity theft, Yahoo may not allow recovery emails to be sent to recycled email addresses. In this situation, you can only reach out to the third-party company for more help.

  18. phone number for recovery. don't have a cell or mobile phone

    Please accept a landline phone for recovery. I don't have a Cell or mobile phone and don't plan on getting one. Says it's now required when an alternate email should be enough. If a phone is required, then accept a landline as well. There should be a choice. If a phone is required, make it accessible for all

    In the current version of Yahoo you are required  to provide a mobile phone number to protect your online safety. It's important to have updated information should you ever need to change your account settings, reset your password or contact Yahoo customer support.
