How can we improve New Mail?

Ad blocker is for my protection, not to deny you ad revenue

Until third-party ads stop being a significant source of malware, using an ad blocker is a smart, even necessary, protective measure. When you can assure me that it's not possible for a malicious ad to make its way into my browser via Yahoo or any ad network is uses, I'll be happy to add Yahoo to my whitelist.

    Your popup makes me feel that I use my account in an unsecure or bad way. However, I do the opposite, since I qualify ads as malware! This popup with the sad emoji icon is ridiculous!

    I have been a faithful Yahoo customer for many years, through tough times and good times. This new pop up to go add free is so annoying. I find it very disruptive. I will switch if it stays. We need a way to say "no thank you" to the add free pop up and make it go away.

    I specifically pay for an Ad Blocker because I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ADVERTISING in my EMAIL INBOX.
    Since the main Yahoo site is FILLED with advertising - don't tell me that filling my Yahoo Mail site with annoying adverts is going to generate ONE PENNY of revenue for Yahoo.
    It will, instead, have the direct opposite effect - I WILL DELETE EVERY SINGLE YAHOO MAIL COUNT I HAVE.

    I don't use an ad blocker, I use a virus protection program. Seems to work just fine. If you want to pay for the service Yahoo gives without ads, get Pro. It's $3 a month, cheap.

    I already deleted yahoo from one of my browsers because of all of the 3rd party cookies and the ad tracking. I can easily do it from google , too. I don't have to use yahoo. There are many other choices out there for email. many do not have the adware/cookies etc. that you do. You do not need to know what I do on other sites. It's none of your business.

    Your stupid pop up when I try reading my email is getting old. I don't need to White List any site including Yahoo! I have no issue with dropping my Yahoo email account and using my MSN account, if you want to play this game you all can kiss my A$$!

    I installed Ad Blocker because I DON'T WANT TO SEE ADS. Your site is filled with malware ads. Can't you make sure your ads don't leave malware in the first place? Till then, never turning off adblocker.

    You're telling me I may be missing mail because I have an ad blocker? EXCUSE ME but I PAY Frontier for mail boxes that include Yahoo so I better not be missing mail because you want more revenue! STOP it!

    these are offensive but they keep popping up . I do not want to view this trash or have my preteen daughters be subjected to this trash

    I installed Ad Blocker because I DON'T WANT TO SEE ADS. I'm keeping it so stop bugging me about it every **** time I go to my mail.

    I'm getting a bit tired of your popup telling me I should turn off my adblocker. Seeing as how Yahoo is unable to keep the information of its users out of the hands of hackers, you can understand why I don't trust Yahoo to filter out malicious ads. It's ok to ask me once, but every ******* time is getting old.

    I have adblock on for a reason. Your site is filled with malware ads. Can't you make sure your ads don't leave malware in the first place? Till then, never turning off adblocker

    I am being forced to see the unsolicited Ads. Please stop these advertisements, which is forcing me not to use Yahoo mails. Please stop it, otherwise i will have to migrate.

    Logging into mail, I'll enter my username and then get sent to the password page. I'm unable to enter my password in the textbox because it seems the page is waiting for the ad to show up before the textbox becomes enabled. As a result, I'm unable to login and have to make several attempts ... until finally an ad shows up and then the password textbox is enabled. Not good from a user standpoint.
