    By default, both the Trash and Spam folders empty automatically to keep your account tidy. You cannot change the Trash and Spam settings.

    Trash deletion frequency – Trash is deleted after 7 days.
    Spam deletion frequency – Spam is deleted after 30 days.

  2. I receive a lot of **** spam which I do not appreciate and want Yahoo to stop this from happening.

    Getting unwanted emails or spam is frustrating. While most spam should be caught by our spam filters, occasionally some can slip through. If that does happen it’s very important to mark the email as spam. It lets our system learn that messages from a specific place are not good and helps us make Yahoo Mail even better at recognizing future spam emails.

  4. IMAP

    Trying to add a mailbox for my domain address, and the only way to add "Others" is to use the phone app. I installed it, but the phone app doesn't work. I spent an hour with our webhost, and the they never even receive anything from my IP. It looks like the feature is not properly implemented. I'm using proper credentials, but the app just hangs there "waiting for a response from the server." It actually never sent a request.

  6. I am married, happily. I continue to receive dating service ads which I'd thought I'd diverted in "settings". These ads = disruptive.

    Settings fail in trying to ward off unwanted ads, particularly those not good for an established marriage.

  10. IN Reply - remove "x" button NOT WORKING

    When reply or reply all, the senders and recipients auto populated in TO and CC cannot be removed.
    The remove "x" button is there but clicking does not do anything.
    If you add new recipients, those can be removed by clicking "x"
    Something is wrong with the auto populated To and CC

  15. WHY ARE YOU EMPTYING MY DELETED ITEMS AFTER ONLY 10 DAYS

    It's 9th September. I tried to go back into my deleted items and re-look at an email from 28th August and it's GONE. WTF. When did you suddenly start doing this. Please restore my deleted items until I decide to delete them or at least don't rip out deleteds from the last day of the month on the first of the next month. This is ****. I just re-read an email in my Microsoft LIVE email account from 11th Jan 2021. Are these stupid decisions made by little kids?

    Hi there! Sometimes when a mailbox behaves like this it’s because of another program or app the account is being accessed from. Syncing issues between the account and a mail app can cause emails to be moved around oddly.

    If you access the account through a mobile device or app, you may want to remove the account from the device and re-add it to resolve any syncing issues in the future.

    Hope this helps!

    Getting a error that "This mailbox is not syncing with Yahoo and needs permission to resume. This can happen because a security setting or password has changed." The password for the primary account and sub account are accurate. the Primary account is fine and receiving email. Email for subaccount has not been updated since June and not getting any help from Yahoo or AT&T. What are the steps to correct this issue
