  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  7. Date Layout

    The date sequence is day/month/year. There should be a function in the settings that allows you to select what date layout you prefer.

  8. Bring back IP login history when viewing 'recent activity' option in Security settings.

    Yahoo had this service back in 2016 when my email account was hacked. I'm shocked that you guys removed this.

    Gmail and Office 365 already provide these services.

    BRING IT BACK!

  9. Old email delete setting

    There should be a setting to delete old emails over time. I have had to mass delete from 2018 and older. We should be able to regulate how long we want to keep read emails and they don't just sit there unattended or waiting for mass delete to happen.

  11. Add to Yahoo settings; Default setting for "Stay signed in".

    Add to Yahoo settings; Default setting for "Stay signed in".
    I checked for this idea and the response from Yahoo product support is old, from 2018-12 and it simply says "Gathering Feedback". So why has this not been addressed yet? Why is there no setting for this in Yahoo settings menus? Why can't a browser cookie remember this setting?

    PLEASE I want to set the default for "Stay signed in" as un-checked! I want this disabled by default due to the securtiy risk. I'm so disappointed that Yahoo fails to see the security risk and the need to allow a…

  12. Emails going to Spam even after adding the sender to my contacts and flagging Not Spam

    I keep missing important emails because they're going to my Spam folder, even after flagging them "Not Spam", adding the sender to my contacts list and receiving multiple emails from the same address previously! This is beyond a joke now!!

  15. Please make the filter toolbar float at the top of the Filter settings page to allow for easier priority rank of large number of filters

    Currently, if you have more than a dozen filters, you have to scroll through all the filters and then back all the way up to move or delete filters. Instead of having to scroll back to the top for the filter toolbar, keep the toolbar stable/floating, even if you're at the last filter in the list.

  19. provide better help

    provide better help. Do not charge yahoo users to contact support teams via phone. Make chats & other support needed free to be able to solve issues. I should not have to "sign up" to receive help with my issues. I need to chat with an associate to fix my issue straight away & i can not do that because yahoo does not make it available. Makes me want to delete my yahoo account and discourage others from using yahoo. Why? because if you have an issue you cannot get help unless you pay for it. That is insane and…

  20. Filters - allow a filter for sender address greater than a number of characters. Spam has names with dozens of chars.

    I never want emails from senders named like this:
    mongvx5kcihzagip64lejsxbu2wyr97yhmqdtktcpfdslfbqzj@weibo.com
    Let me filter email address prefixes greater than a number of characters. For example, > 30 characters.
