Yahoo mail is so slow
Yahoo mail is so so so slow on my computer. I've been using my college email address instead (gmail) because it works so much better. However, now that I am about to graduate I have been using my yahoo email more - but it's just so frustrating how glitchy and slow it is. I really do not want to have to get an entire new email address (I would definitely use gmail if I made a new one) but if this isn't fixed soon I'm not going to have a choice.
Please try clearing cookies, cache, history, and footprints. To do so, please go to https://help.yahoo.com/kb/new-mail-for-desktop/sln27197.html
Also, please make sure to update your browser and if the problem still persists try to access Yahoo Mail in another browser.
I cannot afford to upgrade. I think that part of the problem is the strength of the ads that draw so much from the basic functioning of the email. A desktop PC is my sole device. Please. Anything? Thank you.

Cannot open, delete, send... I refresh, close and re-open and I cannot do anything. All I see is the cycling circle. Absolutely unusable. Trying to buy a house and I have to keep referring everyone to my gmail account, that works perfectly.

When I click on "Settings", I get a group of WHITE circles. The setting that I have enjoyed for years is gone! How can I regain my setting?

I can see my emails in the inbox, but when I click on them, they never load. A circle comes up that just spins and spins, never loading the body of the email. This only happens on Google Chrome. Not happening on Safari. Started a couple days ago.

What is wrong with Yahoo! mail right now? For about a week it is impossible to log in to it. It takes forever just for the login page to load and put in my user ID and password. Then it takes forever for the mail page to load. Fix it Yahoo! I'm going to Gmail if it isn't corrected soon...

Sometimes when I attempt to send a Draft E-letter, the mail system just hangs.
It says "Sending Letter" for hours usually never completing the task.
If the Send task does finish, the Sent version of the E-Letter does not show any recent changes that were made to the Draft version.
If I reload the Mail program, the Draft E-Letter appears WITHOUT any recent changes.
Only Work-Around found.
Do not Send a Draft E-Letter in 1 step.
Instead, Return to the Draft Folder 1st and then to the Received Folder and then to the Draft Folder and then to the Draft E-Letter.
Then Send the Draft E-Letter.
Or do not attempt to send the Draft E-Letter immediately after completing it or changing it.
Let it "soak" for 30 minutes.
Then try to Send it.
It appears that the Mail program needs to "digest" all recent changes to the Draft E-Letter before it can send it.
Otherwise it becomes confused and cannot send the Draft E-Letter.

Mailbox does not recognize attachments from pdf, excel or word formats and will not download to view. Urgently need this rectified or will have to look at a new email provider. Must add the old Yahoo was a lot better than this version.

What's with Yahoo? Composing an email is very slow some times. I thought it was my computer but I went to my gmail account and it worked fine.
I downloaded Helvetica fonts to use for print work. It immediately affected Yahoo mail but no other browsers or programs. How to return it to default? There should be a default setting for mail.

When I click on a Message in the Inbox, the Message does NOT display in the Reading Pane. Mail should be received instantly like gmail. And stop showing bloody video ads.

I start typing in the search entry bar, and it vanishes from view. Fix that.

Bring the format up to date so users can avoid delays and instances where they can't log in. I love my abc account and have used it for years, but have considered changing. Your connectivity issues are why people have moved to Google email.
