  3. Dated Filters

    It would be helpful if a filter could be set to move items after 7 days. I want to know about emails for bills I have to pay but after the week they get moved to the appropriate folder.

    I also would like if after a filter is set up I could run it to clean my current inbox as a test.

  9. provide better help

    provide better help. Do not charge yahoo users to contact support teams via phone. Make chats & other support needed free to be able to solve issues. I should not have to "sign up" to receive help with my issues. I need to chat with an associate to fix my issue straight away & i can not do that because yahoo does not make it available. Makes me want to delete my yahoo account and discourage others from using yahoo. Why? because if you have an issue you cannot get help unless you pay for it. That is insane and…

  10. wildcard characters

    I get a significant amount of spam every day. The great majority of them come from "**@***.com." I try to use "*@.com" to block ALL mail from any admin, but Yahoo won't accept it. Reading various other comments with similar issues shows "Flag idea as inappropriate." Blocking through the three dots only blocks one address. My blocked list is over 800, and roughly 300 are from an admin-type address. Opening up the wildcard option would allow us to block a large amount of spam.

  11. tone down backgrounds of emails or give the ability to choose a color

    I still want to keep this discussion topic alive. Please vote to either tone down the brightness to the backgrounds of emails or allow manual adjustment to said color/brightness

  12. Folder Renaming Updates Filters

    This has been suggested twice before, both posts being marked as REVIEWED:
    "Wish the Filters get updated after renaming of Folders" (rank 65)
    "Updating the folders reference in Filters" (rank 126)
    Does this mean that they are scheduled to be implemented?
    As remarked in the first post, you should add functionality to the "Rename Folder" code that iterates over all the filters & changes all references to the old folder name to the new folder name.
    Referencing the second post, if each folder has its own unique internal identifier, then provided the folder name can be accessed via this internal…

  14. Please give a refresh button

    Please please give a refresh button. It's so annoying to not have it. It takes off some anxiety from many people. Please bring that button.

  15. I believe I was successful in giving you my new cellular number but I can't seem to put in my new number on Facebook & on Gmail =-locked out

    Can someone tell me how I can keep my Facebook and Gmail account without having to have new accounts? Is there a good phone number or contact information to make this change. It has by memory my cellular number and won't allow me to change my cellular number. I am totally locked out.

  16. Stop blackmailing us to sign up for Yahoo Mail Plus!

    Ny access to Yahoo Mail is blocked by an unremovable pop-up from Yahoo to make me sign up for Yahoo Mail Plus, which I DO NOT want

    Apparently, I have to sign up for a 14 day "free trial" and give all my payment information, "But I may cancel it before 14 days and will not be charged. If this really is from Yahoo, it stinks.

  17. Bug causing total disappearance of email conversations

    Multiple times over the past year or 2, when I highlight a piece of text and hit return or the backspace button, the whole email thread completelydisappears - it doesn't even go to the bin or spam folders. It so frustrating having to rewrite lengthy emails. When will Yahoo fix this very basic problem?

  18. Mark emails with the "|" character as spam please.

    Please add the "|" character to your spam filter. I'm now getting **** sites again, after many years of never seeing that *. The bogus ads from department stores were a pain, but I don't need to see * sites now too.

  19. N.B. I only have the use of a PC. Can the page view of email be extended?

    With the changes that occurred today, January 6, 2022, the number of emails showing on the page has been shortened. Is there any way that I can extend the page view, please? It has the effect of feeling "chopped off." Most likely, people using devices find this aspect suitable, but, for me, it is disconcerting and disorienting. (I realize you do not respond directly, but this feedback form is my only option). Thank you.

  20. N.B. My PC is my only device. New format font Jan 6 22 too light, yet top-heavy.

    Hello. Yahoo mail is my sole email service. Today, the format changed, with the typeface/font even lighter, and less readable. There is no way to adjust this, and I would appreciate consideration for better contrast, and font choice, please.

    The other aspect, as of today, is that the email page is top-heavy with Yahoo logos, etc.

    I am not able to upgrade, and am completely reliant on Yahoo email service, as it is in Basic, with the ads, and am grateful to have it. While not an issue for me, having the email, and all Yahoo, be ADA complaint -…
