  1. How am I supposed to unsubscribe now that you disabled links for Spam emails?!!

    Yahoo, I am stuck receiving Spam forever if I can't unsubscribe from the lists. Stop disabling links in Spam emails or provide an Unsubscribe button next to the header like you used to. Very frustrating!

  2. 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.

  6. 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.

  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…

  13. OPTIONALLY Add ability to show "recipient" in list-of-emails.

    When viewing mail in the "Sent" folder, instead of showing who the sender is, the list-of-emails view very helpfully shows who the recipient is in place of who sent it (makes sense, because I sent all the emails so seeing that isn't very helpful!).

    It's even possible to sort by recipient (in all folders) by actually changing the URL to "sortOrder=recipient" by hand, which is super useful, especially when looking through the "Sent" folder.

    Anyway, the issue is, when moving "sent" mail into other folders (for archiving purposes) is that the feature that shows who the recipient is in the…

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Charging for help? Nothing but greed and gouging when we need u

    Yahoo it seems you are finding ways to charge for more and more obscure "services".. Last night for some reason after 20 years or so of using your email I found myself locked out. At a time I need you to be there as my paypal was hacked and I was getting boned pretty deep and hard. I am not sure why I wasn't able top log in but I often have some difficulty between my phone and desktop that eventually works. After struggling for a few hours I sought help. and I **** near stroked out when I saw…

  20. 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…
