  2. No more ads please

    My idea is that too many ads are distracting my reading the emails so if you all can stop the ads. I never bought any items from the yahoo ads because they make me sick.

  5. Please change the way you take feedback

    The entire process of taking a feedback is difficult for a newcomer and it's more like a community and you have to login for that and then post this idea. wtf
    It should be plain and simple why all this **** like sign in vote up ..... It shouldn't even redirect to a new page. It should just take a instant snap of your screen and ask you for the feedback. Please make it simpler to use and whoever's idea that was he is just outdated. Please change your staff. Better learn from google...

  6. Contacts

    Please enable selection and deletion of multiple contacts at the same time.

    I have ~1600 contacts and was trying to bring the list down to a manageable number.

    I literally have to go to each contact, open it and then delete it.
    This is both extremely time-consuming and very painful.
    Thanks.

  8. Stop frequent changes to the layout of the home page and login page

    Please keep the graphics of the login page simple and consistent so that the users know that they are in the right place. DON'T put any ads on this page. The new graphics or ads on the login page made me worried if I was on a fake yahoo site!! Gmail and Hotmail don't do that.

  9. Do not put Putin's picture on your cover page, almost every day. He is a murderer and dictator and should not be adverised

    When I look at Putin on most days that you portray him on your web page it makes me sick as he is murdering little children and many lovely people in Ukraine. Please eliminated the dictator's picture. He is nothing to pattern your life after.

  10. Users must be able to view email address rather than display names

    Provide option for users to view email address of sender and not display names. This way it will be very easy for us to identify sender as most spamsters mask their email address and display fake names. This will reduce the number of phishing attacks as most users will be able to identify the sender or atleast the domain names and avoid opening emails and clicking on email contents from unknown senders. It will take much less time to identify senders instead of hovering the mouse over their display names.

  11. NEED MORE THAN 1000 BLOCK EMAIL OPTION (HAVE USED 1000 of 1000).

    NEED MORE THAN 1000 BLOCK EMAIL OPTION (HAVE USED 1000 of 1000).

    The limit of emails to block is 1000. I have used my limit of a 1000 email blocks and would like the limit to be raised higher. With the rise of spam emails now days, we need the option to BLOCK MORE emails. This would also help with the SPAM folder and Email folder from getting so large on a daily basis.

  12. add new contact

    Adding and editing new contacts was easy, until upgrades reduced the access and quality of Yahoo E-Mail. A simple point and click as we had before, with minor edit capability would be preferred to the very difficult system now available. Today I can add a name, but not the associated address. No longer am I asked if I wish to add or remove a contact ...

  13. 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.

  14. filters

    Hi there,

    Upgrading the filters would be a good idea, a simple way to stop spam is to enable the ability to match the given name to the domain name. Most spam tries to convince you of its authenticity by putting the name of the domain as the sender name a simple if/else clause would make it easy to filter fake emails. It would be good if there was a "does not end with" option. Also it might just be me but I don't find the term "from" to be very clear, what does that actually mean? Is it the…

  16. Have yearly billing option

    I hate the monthly billing cycle.

    I was a yahoo Mail Pro subscriber for the last 19 years. I was happy with it, you billed me once a year and I didn't get all the ads. Now you have discontinued the "Pro" option and pushed me into "Plus". Now I have a stupid $5/month charge showing up on my credit card.

    I guess it is easier to sell someone on "its only $5/month, go for it" then to convince them that they are paying $60/year to not get your ads.

    I don't want monthly billing, just bill it once a…

  17. Undo pop-up dialogue in the way of toolbar

    When I delete a mail message, the "Message deleted UNDO" dialogue pops up and blocks further access the toolbar used to action the next message. You have to manually close this dialogue. I would prefer an option to disable this pop-up altogether. BTW - contacting support does not work in MS Edge.

  19. Suddenly, I am sending email into space. It vanishes.

    Yesterday, and today the composed email is "Sent" into space. Most curious, and it is a good thing I consistently check my "Sent" folder. Also, for the first time, when I copied an imaged on the internet and pasted it within an email, it got busy, "adding attachments." Plural even. I am mystified. I have done nothing - nothing, I say - to the computer, software - nothing. ???? Thank you.
