  1. Retention of Sent Email

    I use an email client because I don't want email sitting on yahoo's servers. I would like a setting that turns off retention of sent email in the sent email folder. I do not like logging into the web interface and then having to manually clean out the sent email folder. Most intelligent people use an email client because they do not want their email traffic retained on a third party server. Email clients allow deletion of received emails on the third party server but have not control over the sent folder on the third party server. It would be…

  4. Not Spam Optiton Not working

    The Yahoo 'Not SPAM' option is defective and is not working. I have tried to deselect different emails from different legitimate senders and the Yahoo SPAM filter moves them right back to JUNK or SPAM. I can see there are several people with the same issue but the system does not allow me to select critical on these items so I have created a a new entry. Please fix this

  5. ******** for deleting important documents

    Yahoo and all the big data companies are becoming awful, they deleted important documentation. It's better to look for an alternative mailing service. I hate yahoo so much for sharing my data, even worse for not sending my mail when it was important, I wouldn't receive important mail ether. They have become such a sketchy company, **** this mail platform.

  6. FILTER

    When we select a message and apply "Filter message like this" , all messages of the same sender / subject needs to be displayed. What action is to be done the user has to decide.

    What happens is , moving to the Folder is directed.

  7. Limited sorting choices for both the starred and unread folders

    I have an idea regarding how you can resolve your current limited sorting choices for both the starred and unread folders, which are currently Date: Newest on top, Date: Oldest on top, Attachments, and Relevance. Add a COPY option for those two folders, to target a different folder! Doing this would allow you to COPY all emails from either the starred or unread folders to a different target folder (other than starred or unread), which would then have the ADDITIONAL sorting choices of Sender and Subject (which are quite useful, especially SENDER)! I realize that you can currently MOVE to…

  9. Folders

    Return to the old format! When I move a message to a folder, I do NOT expect to keep seeing it in my ALL MAIL. If I delete it does it delete from the folder? What a mess you all created!

    If you're going to put things in ALL MAIL vs INBOX have some sort of way of indicating there's a new message...So frustrating!

  11. Yahoo app

    Something has changed with the Yahoo app and now you can only see different categories of emails instead of all your emails that come in in the order they arrive. I really don't like this because it disrupts the way I organize and prioritize my emails. Please restore an option to have it the "old" way. Thanks! And, I would suggest that you give some warning before you change the format of the app again. At first I thought it was just not working or that I had lost lots of mail.

  12. shortcut

    Please leave the D then <number> shorcut key to move to folder staticly tied to the same folders. If i'm already in a particular folder it moves every folder below it down one number. the whole point of a shortcut is that you MEMORIZE the key combination for a folder... it removes the entire point if the shortcut is constantly changing.

  16. No notification icon on new emails (Unread folder)

    New emails go into Unread folder without any notification icon, so I don't see that I have new emails to read. Besides that after having these emails read they don't do into Inbox folder.

    This is a defect rather than just an improvement....

    I received this from customer support:

    I understand that you would like to remove "Your Inbox Highlights".

    Unfortunately, there is no option to remove this new feature.

    Does anyone know a way to hack this annoying New feature where yahoo mail keeps telling you things you already know?
