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 can't compose, forward, reply to, or attach anything to an email. The buttons are all greyed out when I log in and read email. I just updated my browser. It's obvious you're trying to force people to the new mail system (which sucks because it does the same thing). FIX THIS. My browser cache is EMPTY.
Horrible email, important emails gets sent to spam and junk stay in the inbox, also I refuse to give my number to acces my mail on a different computer. I would rather lose my email account completely than give you guys my phone number. It's buggy, it's slow, it's just a bad service, you guys have really fallen behind. Thank God for my Google and my phone. Yahoo mail was no help what's so ever. What a frustrating experience. You guys ******!!!!
One specific email from quidco for trustpilot review does not open in the web client on Google Chrome,
the same email opens in Yahoo mail app on android 8 and Windows 10 Mail app.
Other emails can be opened in the web client.

Eliminate the lag in typing messages - I shouldn't have to finish typing a sentence, stop and then wait a few seconds for it to appear in the e-mail. This issue was why I had stayed with classic Yahoo mail until forced to upgrade, and after all these years, the issue is still there.
I can not delete or mark emails as spam. Many functions produce the endless spinning wheel. The return to classic mail button does not exist. I'll be forced to leave if these things are not fixed.
Whenever I open Yahoo Mail tab on my Chrome browser, my CPU usage is 100%, and it's very laggy. This happens in the last several months.. Please fix this.
VERY SLOW and when opening emails the X dont work when clicked on firefox

The formatting of screens for Yahoo is not working correctly & I can't get mail at all

Too many Ads are slowing down the performance. Please there are other platforms for making ad revenue, not at my expense, I cannot wait for Yahoo to make my browser unresponsive and drive my CPU nuts. Please keep it light weight and focus on user experience and performance of the webpage. It is a disaster now, can't get anything done. Need to switch to a GMAIL otherwise. Thanks!

SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW
Quit the annoying messages about restarting my browser even after it has been restarted.
New Yahoo is SLOW! I want to leave yahoo altogether to get some speed back.
Michael Weldon commented
Since Yahoo Mail downgraded, the speed has been extremely slow - often many minutes to load a sentence.
Please return to older and much faster E-Mail

Why am I forced continuously to sign in to my own email on my private computer? It's aggravating and I don't see it as a safety feature. It's an annoyance. Stop it please
Keep the usual functions (like "search" and "trash can" in email subject line) so we don't have to take time to search for them in a new place, and make pages and ads use less memory and load fast.
I was having trouble downloading some email excel spreadsheet attachments; they all look like the same attachment when trying to download from phone (which I knew was off); then turned out to be different when downloaded from lap top.
Thanks for reading.
Every time I log into my mail account, in less than 1 sec it display my mail then auto los me out. How do I get the mail to continue displaying until I log out. E.g. stop this auto log out problem
Help ! I tried to drag an attachment into my email instead of attaching it and everything went bonkers. I cannot open messages and my sent and draft folders will not open at all - I cannot access help either - can someone get back to me ??

why the **** does yahoo keep sending old deleted and spam back time after time ....THIS **NEEDS TO STOP
I can not get to my mail. Every time I sign in it just sends me back to the new "going places" page. That page will only send me back to the sign in page. I can log in to my Yahoo account, just not the mail. I would cancel my account right now but there is stuff in my mail that I need. Please fix this soon!
