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.

Select all button doesn't work. Good luck getting help; just a run-a-round. Click on Chat and they want $4.99 a month to get help.

You've taken away functionality and made this a problematic **********to operate. I can't find any pictures from previous email function . It's slow; it's cranky; it works half as well as the previous release. What harm is done by leaving me alone and allowing me to carry on happily the way I was? This is about as helpful as passing gas in church! I hate to change addresses but if you keep on I've been wanting to move to gmail for several years.
The new version of Yahoo mail is terrible...
It's way more cluttered and less usable.
The filter email option is way more problematic. Why do I have to go all the way into settings?

new yahoo ******... Much the same as it does each time they ram it down my throat...
I dont have high speed internet , as does most of middle America, HMMMM< seems the left is trying to thwart us from getting information.
Rest assured I am done being forced into a service that is ****-tacular. Im going to a pay service and its not yahoo.

Oh my gosh, this is insane. You've RUINED my email. I'm typing 2 paragraphs & can't see any of it. It hangs. Shows up seconds later. Totally unusable. I've waited 3 days hoping this problem would disappear. But it's as bad as or worse today. Fix this or I'm out of here. Who would put up with using this kind of ****?
Cant delete anything. Cant select all. What do we do when the storage limit is reached but we cant delete anything. A lot of ppl have a lot of their lives running through their email. Why are you changing it to something that doesn't work, and calling it improved?

Yahoo mail just changed to the new format. It is more like MSN and Google. I do not use those because the performance is so bad.
Anyone with a slower network bandwidth will hate this new format. It sucks up too much of the connection.
It also causes my computer to slow down.
You should have a version for those who have a slower internet and computer.
I have had this email for 20 years, and now I have to consider moving.

To change my settings the way they used to be. I cannot open My important document and it is getting annoying
Yahoo email has become frustratingly slow and non responsive.
The biggest problem though is the fact that even though thousands have complained and patiently voiced their utter dissatisfaction YAHOO failed to respond.
Please YAHOO executives.... tell us if you are happy sitting back and see us in agony trying to use what by now has become a mediocre service, so we can safely abandon a service we used happily for years!!!

Completely understand you need to have new versions but new versions are usuallybetter - not SLOWER AND WORSE

Are you going to fix the "new" email format - It is SLOW - does not work that is why I kept on Basic. Now that I have been forced to use the new format I will be looking for a new provider - very sad after beingwith Yahoo for over 20 years!

You guys can't produce a decent email experience. Are you kidding?
Don McGuire commented
Dump new mail. It does not load or function. Total ****!
The new format with the ads on the left side of the email client are causing email crashes so emails are being lost before they are saved as drafts.
I have been using yahoo for years but I think its time to completely transition to Gmail. Thanks for your good years of service but I think your sun has set like AOL.

My account is setup in English but when I mispell a workd and right click on it, the words in the window are spelled in Spanish, Fix that please.

New format slows down my PC.
I want to have the possibility to switch back to the old format, that is simpler and fast.
Why every "improvement" leads to slowness and more intrusive advertising??
