  1. 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.

  2. 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 Please make it simpler to use and whoever's idea that was he is just outdated.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...

  3. 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…

  4. Allow user to turn off the spam filter.

    I use a pop mail client (Outlook) and only emails in the inbox get brought down using pop so if an email is filtered to the spam folder I never see it unless I open Yahoo Mail in a browser and check the spam folder. I need the ability to turn off the spam filter and let all emails pop down to Outlook.

  5. ads

    Please allow me to block ads for holidays like Mother's Day. My mom passed last year and the last thing I need is constant ads about sending her flowers! There is no '3 dot' link on these ads to indicate that I don't like the ads. Fix this.

  7. spam

    Recently, your spam filters are putting legitimate emails into the SPAM folder. Even from email ids I have communicated with in the past!!! Why did this change all of a sudden??

  10. wildcard characters

    I get a significant amount of spam every day. The great majority of them come from "**@***.com." I try to use "*@.com" to block ALL mail from any admin, but Yahoo won't accept it. Reading various other comments with similar issues shows "Flag idea as inappropriate." Blocking through the three dots only blocks one address. My blocked list is over 800, and roughly 300 are from an admin-type address. Opening up the wildcard option would allow us to block a large amount of spam.

    Offer a yearly subscription payment option in addition to the monthly pester-you-to-death choice. I'll happily sign up for Yahoo Mail+ then.

  14. Link activated sender address field enables phishing schemes.

    The way Yahoo is displaying the from field with a web link is enabling phishing schemes. It makes a malicious email look very authentic, and makes it very difficult to view the actual sender's address. I received an email that displays Intuit E-Commerce Service quickbooks@notification.intuit.com as the sender, and when I hover over the address it shows a contact card for Intuit and a link to Intuit.com. The body of the email says that I've been charged $350, and they have renewed a service I never signed up for, and clearly isn't from Intuit. Yahoo needs to make it more…

  15. SECURITY: Two Factor Authentication on Outgoing Messages!

    Add feature to have a 2-steps verification on outgoing messages.

    Today, my Yahoo forwarded an email BY ITSELF! I don't believe I am hacked as I don't see unusual activity in Security, and I have 2-Factor Authentication login active. But it appears there is nothing to authenticate outgoing messages like my bank authenticates outgoing fund transfers.

    Please add 2-Factor Authentication on outgoing messages! I don't know what caused this event, but it is most disconcerting and I have no way to prevent it from recurring. I have some confidential emails that I do not want to be disseminated unscrupulously!

  16. sender's email addresses

    In the list, we can only see name/family of senders. So hackers set their names like these: no-reply@amazon.com. It is very likely we make a momentary mistake and open that email and click on buttons inside the email. So you should clearly show sender's email addresses in the list too.

  18. Without comments, Yahoo News feels like being gagged :?(

    Hi: I hope you'll reinstate Comments in Yahoo News, and give us a chance to discuss things again. I find I'm hardly reading it at all anymore. After being able to participate for so long, now it just feels like being gagged. Is your note serious, too, that you've "temporarily" suspended them? How long has that been up— a year, at least? [shrug] Thanks!

  19. @T‑Mobile.com is a VALID e-mail address. Yahoo Mail WRONGLY says it is not valid.

    @T‑Mobile.com is a VALID e-mail address. Yahoo Mail WRONGLY says it is not valid.

    The issue is easy to see.

    Yahoo Mail is failing to accept the valid dash character, - , after the @ character.

    Notice how your response e-mail does have a dash character after the @ character, no-reply+yahoo@feedback-poweredby.uservoice.com.

    In your e-mailed response, the help.yahoo.com link is NOT helpful to add additional info to this specific issue.

    You have also Closed Comments on this, preventing valuable feedback, so my only option is to resend it again as a new idea.

  20. Yahoo login is unacceptable unusable garbage

    Pop-up telling me to setup e-mail or phone is confusing AF. What am I doing entering a phone or an e-mail. You act like that is the same thing. No, it is two different things idiots. Same goes within settings page. I go to add the phone number and then your inconsistent pages is showing me e-mails. Why is your web site so different then standard best practices. It is very simple people - one box for phone number; and one box for e-mail.

    I do not even know if one is enough. I says phone number is required but…
