  3. Deleted ALL E-Mails from my DEAD DAD After Inactivity

    I would love if I could access all of the e-mails I received from my DEAD DAD. However, they are ALL DELETED because I was "inactive" for too long. WHY is that your decision to make and not mine?

    Hi. We are sorry to hear about your loss! 


    If an account is unused or dormant for 12 months, it is deactivated and its emails are deleted, more info here: help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN2018.html Once emails are being purged during the inactivity period of the account, they are deleted from the servers as well. 


    While your recent login reactivated your account, the data deleted is not recoverable. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you!

  5. Why are some critical messages never delivered? This is an old problem and it's getting worse.

    Not receiving critical emails! AGAIN! So, I want to verify my email address with Lyft. They send me an email with a code, but I am not getting it. Yes, I checked in the spam folder and it's not there either. What the **** do I do now?

    I had the SAME issue with emails from two different landlords/leasing offices, several years apart. How likely are they to trust you if you tell them "I didn't get your email". And what is the point of using Yahoo mail if they are going to selectively block some of the most important…

  7. PLEASE STOP emptying my email trash folder for me--let ME decide that!

    Unbelievable that Yahoo decides when to empty our trash folders instead of allowing us to decide that--I feel like a child, geez.

    By default, both the Trash and Spam folders empty automatically to keep your account tidy. You cannot change the Trash and Spam settings.

    • Trash deletion frequency - Trash is deleted after 7 days.
    • Spam deletion frequency - Spam is deleted after 30 days.

  9. 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!


  10. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Block sender

    What happened to "block sender". I used to be able to check all spam emails, click on the 3 dots on the right of the actions and get a drop down with block senders as an option. Click on that and they are all blocked at once. Other option was to individually block each spam email, a more tedious task but at least could block. Now both blocking methods are gone. WHY? I get the same obnoxious phishing emails daily, along with weird email ads for things I would never want. How do I make it go away?

  15. WHY DO I HAVE TO CHANGE MY PASSWORD EVERYTIME I SIGN IN?

    guess i will have to delete yahoo since i have to change my password every time i log in.....i should NOT have to pay a fee for customer support....especially since yahoo's changes caused the problem.

    Verify that you have the exact address in the blocked address field. Also keep in mind that emails filtered as spam will bypass any filters on the account and go straight to the Spam folder.

  17. security

    Stop making me change my password. Too many ******* passwords to remember. If I want to use an old password that's MY business. Stop being such *about it. It's just a throwaway email. Get over yourselves.

  19. block offensive ads permanently

    Give me the ability to permanently block certain ads. Case in point, there is a thoroughly disgusting toe fungus ad that keeps playing DAILY in the right side bar of my news feed. This ad is REPULSIVE! And no matter how many times I cancel it, and comment that the ad is inappropriate and I don't want to see it any more, it still pops up DAILY. Sometimes I am eating and reading email and this ad makes my want to puke! Yahoo - please get your sh!!! together! Allow us to permanently block offensive ads. PLEASE!!!!!!!! DO SOMETHING!
