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.

Also, please make sure to update your browser and if the problem still persists try to access Yahoo Mail in another browser.

I was in the last stretch of composing an email when the whole thing disappeared and DID NOT save to my drafts! Every time I pasted in ONE picture, it would add the same picture TWICE. Stupid, stupid, stupid! Now, I have to start all over again....what a waste!

I've used Yahoo for quite some years using different usernames & such. The site had been quite well at one point but has faltered so much lately. I'm really disappointed how slow the system is & how hard it is to navigate through what should be very easy tasks but the site makes it so hard to do anything. Period. Question, Why should we the customers have to give yahoo our ideas? To be sure the people who put the site together should be able to answer their own questions about the server. Sad. Just so sad

Advanced images are allowed in my settings but this doesn't work for all web sites including my own.

Lately when I log in to my yahoo account and leave on as I continue working, the tab closes automatically within a few minutes, at times even when I am responding to mails. This is so annoying. Is there anything you can do to help?
Email threads have been broken for at least 5 years. Regardless of machine or browser. Parts disappear (from both the UI and search). Parts magically reappear months later. The editor will sometimes start flashing on conversation load -- one or two flashes per email in the thread.
The editor will also flash during composition if you take more than a few minutes to write your email. This is just the editor pane and not a page reload. During that flash, all sorts of stuff can happen -- including losing parts of your thread -- cursor jumping -- or, like today, accidentally archiving the email you are writing because you were typing and, with the reload, it now thinks you are hitting shortcut keys.
Yes, a real fine product here totally worth paying for. I really need to remember to download my history and then cancel the plan. Stupid me.

I am in crazy situation where all mails with attachments in Yahoo I have to send to Gmail in order to be able to save attachments. I use Opera browser only.
Whatz a crazy world!

I just want to see all pictures at any time. They are there for a reason.

I add contacts. I try to add them to a list. They cannot be found when trying to add to a list, but can be found when searching all. A really annoying and ridiculous bug that makes the list feature in contacts completely useless.

I could not able to see the picture & image with the mail. Even the image in the mail are not getting downloaded in separate tab. Please do the needful.

The delay between someone sending me an email and it being loaded into Yahoo email is interminably long. And you're soliciting us to pay for ad-free content. And then what? We get a brutally bad email system without ads? I'd rather deal with the ads and have a good email system.

Old Emails Won't Load
The Yahoo email web interface is not finding any of my old email -- older than 3 months. Neither a word search nor just scrolling the Inbox can find anything older than 3 months (mid February, 2021). I get a spinning icon, implying Yahoo is trying to load the next batch, but it never completes. Please fix.

Why my yahoo received emails doesn't open? I am very frustrated because when I call to get some help, yahoo customer service tell me that I have to pay in order to get help.
Ann Goldiaz commented
Even though my internet is active, my yahoo doesn't open some of my emails and shows me this msg: "you are offline". But I am not. Could you pplease fix this?
