    Hi there,

    This help page explains how to switch back:

    https://help.yahoo.com/kb/switch-back-previous-version-yahoo-mail-sln15936.html?redirect=true

    Please be sure you click on the settings wheel in Mail, not in Help. We have found that some users are trying to make the change to switchback to classic Mail in help.yahoo.com rather than in Mail.yahoo.com. You will not find the option to switchback in Help. You will find it in Mail.

    Thank you!

  5. Don't read my emails, Yahoo (Oath)!

    I read your new terms, and I am so disappointed. I will be moving all of my email services away from Yahoo because you say you will now be going through all of my emails on all of my devices. If you don't change this policy, you will go bankrupt soon... idiots.

    The best way to resolve this is to mark the emails as “Not Spam”, that way you can train the spam filter to better identify important emails in the future. Also if you use a mobile device or email client to access your mail over IMAP, please check the Spam filters in that application, to make sure it’s not marking important emails as spam.

    Hi there,

    This help page explains how to switch back:

    https://help.yahoo.com/kb/switch-back-previous-version-yahoo-mail-sln15936.html?redirect=true

    The switchback option should be available to all users. If you cannot see the switchback option, this may be an issue with your resolution. Please try lowering your browser’s resolution or scrolling to the extreme right of your screen. The switchback option is available by clicking on the gear icon. From here you can see the settings menu and the link “Switch back to classic” is available at the bottom on this pane, directly under “More Settings”.

    Thank you!

  11. spam

    It used to be that I could notify you about an email I thought you should check out. I think it was a subcategory of marking it as spam. E.g. Just got an email from mailer daemon saying they couldn't deliver a message. The problem is I never sent the msg AND I've never heard of the person it couldn't reach. I wanted to send this to you to see if my account has been hacked. I marked it as spam and it just disappeared. NOT what I had in mind happening. Fix it so we have easy access to…

    If you’re suddenly getting a lot of Spam email in your inbox, you can check out this post for more info:

    https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Tips-and-tricks/Getting-lots-of-spam-in-Yahoo-Inbox/td-p/329507/jump-to/first-unread-message

    If emails from legitimate senders are going to Spam, make sure to marked them as Not Spam, as opposed to just moving them out of the Spam folder. If the sender is a company or a corporate address, It also be helpful for them to reach out to our Postmaster team (postmaster.yahoo.com)

  12. lost my password.

    One can no longer recover one's password. All that's available is having a code sent to one's phone and then typing in the code. This has locked me out of my netflix account as it keeps asking for my yahoo password (it's linked to my yahoo account.) I am in the process of moving all of my important email out of yahoo and into gmail. Then I will close this account. Extraordinarily stupid, not to mention it's discriminatory towards people without smart phones (like my mother).

    If there’s something unusual about your sign in or recent activity, we’ll ask you to go through another verification step after you’ve entered the correct password. This helps protect your account from unauthorized access. You may be prompted to get a verification code on your Yahoo app, recovery phone number, or recovery email address for any of the following reasons:

  18. Change the name that appears on my outgoing emails

    There is no way for me to change the name on the outgoing emails from our Yahoo Small Business account. I've tried all of the ways that the support team have given me, which look like they work until I send an email and the recipient still thinks they are talking with my boss instead of me. Solutions on the support site either don't work (https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Yahoo-Help-Community/ct-p/english), or are broken links (https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Tips-and-tricks/Sent-emails-show-wrong-name-in-Yahoo-Mail/td-p/445701/jump-to/first-unread-message). I'm pretty disappointed in this service that as far as i know we are paying $70 a year for.
