  1. Today is 7/13/2021. Since 10:30 this morning I have recieved over 102 Spam emails. It needs to stop!

    How about Yahoo makes it easier to stop all of these repeat spam emails. Most you can't unsubscribe from.

    Getting unwanted emails or spam is frustrating. While most of spam emails are being caught by our spam filters, occasionally some can slip through.

    When this happens, it’s very important to mark the email as Spam, then our system will learn that messages from a specific place are not good and helps us make Yahoo Mail even better at recognizing future spam emails. More info here: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/manage-spam-mailing-lists-yahoo-mail-sln28056.html

  2. Don't automatically delete old messages

    don't automatically delete conversations older than 18 months
    I desperately need to view messages from 2019, plus there are priceless pictures from several years ago that are just GONE!!!

    Sometimes when a mailbox behaves like this it’s because of another program or app the account is being accessed from. Syncing issues between the account and a mail app can cause emails to be moved around oddly.

    If you access the account through a mobile device or app, you may want to remove the account from the device and re-add it to resolve any syncing issues in the future.

  3. if i delete my messages from my laptop i would like to have them deleted from another device i use for my yahoo email

    Not getting the emails you expect is frustrating, especially when you are waiting for an important email. Use the steps below to quickly identify the reason behind this and if there’s an issue with your account or the sender’s account that’s preventing the messages from arriving: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/emails-received-yahoo-mail-sln28074.html

    Also, please try clearing your cache and cookies or go to another browser to see if you encounter the same issue.

    Hope this helps!

  9. I am unable to stop the desktop notification that happens on my incoming emails. This happens only for one of my yahoo mails

    I use Google Chrome as my browser. I have tried all possible settings to prevent notifications in my browser as well as yahoo email, but I am unable to stop the annoying message that appears as a banner notification with a sound on the top right corner. I have multiple yahoo emails, but this seems to be happening with only one of my emails. How can I stop this? Thanks.

  11. permanently empty spam folder

    Hi, seems to be not alone in this - have two Yahoo accounts. On one of them Spam folder is always empty, probably everything gets erased automatically? Have not done anything myself. Would like a possibility to review my spam before it gets erased. Rather annoying that all advice which I found by googling leads nowhere... Please, help

    Hi there! 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.

    Hope this helps!

  12. Does anybody know how to arrange that when a recipient has read your email, some "tick" or other sign appears in your "sent" message?

  13. Why are there dating ads in yahoo?

    It's been some days now that I keep seeing dating ads on yahoo's front and sign in page. What's with that? This is an email host, not a trash site promoter. And I keep clicking to set them off and they won't go away. What's with that?

  18. Email will not send

    Anyone having this issue? I cannot email my other family member's yahoo account. It's been two days and no email will arrive in his box. We've tried about 10 times. Will not arrive. The emails show in my sent folder, but will never arrive in the other yahoo account/his.

    Yahoo ALWAYS opens in my sent folder. Reminding me of bill issues I had a year ago. Maybe add some option so it can open in my inbox instead.
