  1. Yahoo Mail deleted Folders and moved emails inbox without my consent

    In less than an hour, several of my folders were deleted and the emails were moved to my inbox without my consent. I have a LOT of folders and only a few of them were deleted. I did not access these folders today or in the last week or month. I now have over 600 unread emails in my inbox. Can this be reversed to restored my email/folders prior to today?

  2. Important Emails Going to Spam

    Consistently, for the past couple months, I've had emails going to Spam. These are emails from contacts who regularly have reached out to me over the years; and suddenly, for some reason, they're going to Spam. Is there anything that can be done to rectify this?

  3. Favorite folder

    I am missing a Folder favorite function in Yahoo, like what Hotmail has. Much used folders can there be dragged up to just above the Folders. I can not understand why Yahoo is not doing this improvement! Please explain.

  7. Please correct

    Hey! The mail is good. I can’t understand one thing, why there is a video in every empty folder. They load memory and the browser freezes. Registered since 2012. Everyone is happy. Thank you!

    I created a new folder in my yahoo mail. I transferred some of my "sent" mail to the new folder. The first column it's showing "me".... obviously the sender is me, so no need to say "me" again. Instead of "me" its better if the first recipient's name appears in the first column.

  9. Filter Messages Like this

    I get a lot of advertising emails. I don't consider them Spam, but want to filter them into an Advertising folder that I setup. However to do this, I have to do this 1 email at a time. I would prefer to select multiple messages and do this all together. Thanks

  11. Unread is not needed. If yes, please provide a way to move to Inbox.

    There are messages in the folder "Unread". Please provide a way to move certain unread messages to the folder "Inbox" (too much to have to open both Inbox and Unread.) Thanks.

  12. Why are my emails still showing in my main folder instead of going into the sub folders so I don't have to see my read messages?

    Before today if I put an email into a sub folder it no longer showed in the main folder. That is what I want. Now all of a sudden my main folder is full of messages I have already read and sorted making it hard to get to the ones I still need to read and sort.

  13. automatically keeping sent mail relies in the same folder as received mail

    Can you provide an option to automatically keep mail replies in the same sub-folders as the original mail message I was replying to.
    I send hours every day having to sort the sent mail contents into the correct subfolders so that mail does not get lost.

  14. How am I supposed to unsubscribe now that you disabled links for Spam emails?!!

    Yahoo, I am stuck receiving Spam forever if I can't unsubscribe from the lists. Stop disabling links in Spam emails or provide an Unsubscribe button next to the header like you used to. Very frustrating!

  15. Offer an optional setting to disable the message list headers

    I use the "Bottom" mailbox/message layout but my suggestion can benefit users with "Right" message layouts too.

    I suggest that you offer an optional setting to disable the mailbox list header labels (e.g., Today, Yesterday, Last Week, 2021, etc.) so that only the list appears in the top half of the screen (with the selected message still appearing in the bottom half as it does today)?

    This change will maximize the space utilization so that more messages appear in the list. The list already contains the time or date of each message so a timestamp will still appear but in…

  19. SPAM Auto Delete Option

    There should be an auto delete option where a user can set the time frame in which to delete mail. I don't want to keep SPAM in my folder for 30 days. There should be an option where I can set an auto delete option for my SPAM folder to have the mail deleted every day.
