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.

Yahoo has a problem with its authentication server. I changed my password and logged off to check if I would be able to login with my new password. But I was unable to login. Fortunately, I had also updated my password in Google Chrome. Google Chrome logged me in. Then, I logged off one more time and tried to log in myself again.
But I couldn't logged in again and I tried to log in with Google Chrome again. It worked. I was able log in. At the third time, it was the same. I couldn't log in when I type the password myself but Google Chrome logged me in. I have compared the passwords I wrote and the one Google Chrome saved. Every character was the same.
I thought that maybe the reason is my password is so complicated. Then, I changed my password second time with a simpler password. I tried to log in typing the password myself and then using Google Chrome. I tried 3 more times. The result was the same. IF I TYPE THE PASSWORD MYSELF, I CANNOT LOG IN. BUT USING GOOGLE CHROME, I CAN LOG IN. THE PASSWORD I WRITE IS EXACTLY THE SAME PASSWORD WITH THE ONE GOOGLE SAVED.
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY A PROBLEM WITH YAHOO'S AUTHENTICATION SERVER. I DON'T WANT TO THINK THAT THIS ISSUE IS DONE CONSCIOUSLY BY YAHOO TO MAKE MONEY MAKING THE USERS TO CALL HELPDESK. BUT IF THIS PROBLEM CONTINUES, I AM GOING TO STOP USING YAHOO.

This is so annoying and frustrating. I am struggling to write a longer email and edit add words and ideas and it's impossible. I have to start everything from the beginning.
I never had any other email than my Yahoo.com email, but if there is no way to fix this issue this will be my last email sent.
"Clean your inbox" gives the same error message every time, on all platforms, "failed moving folder inbox messages to archive"
Need to fix can’t get into trash folder freezes

When I click on and email, type an answer and then click Send, the Inbox reopens with a link to click on the sent email. This is very nice. If I click the box to the left of the email I just answered and select a folder to move this email to, then click Apply, the next thing that opens is my Sent folder. I reopen the Inbox and the email I answered is still there. I have to tell the program to move it a second time, and then it will do it. Please make that happen the first time I tell it to, instead of opening the Sent folder. This has been going on for a week or two. Thank you.
Update - this was merged with Yahoo! Mail working too slowly. That's not my problem at all! It doesn't do the action I wanted but opens an unrelated folder! Ridiculous! How will Yahoo! techs see my problem and fix it?!?

Please fix the feature that lets me delete e-mails, it does not work and I cannot delete any of them.
Allow ability to download multiple attachments w/o having to shut down Yahoo. Currently you have to shut down Yahoo before you can download the next attachment. Used to be able to do this in Basic Mail.
Why do I have to pay to get help with Yahoo Mail from a human being? Yahoo Mail is operating very slowly on two computers. Can't find any similar subject on any help category. Only way to talk to Customer Support is to sign up and pay. I just need the problem solved.

make it as easy as gmail
Your mail service is VERY SLOW. Get faster or I'll have to switch to Gmail completely.

It would be nice if my e-mail would open up ! ! !
Yahoo seems to be deteriorating more & more as time goes on. Email contacts are no longer workable. Group messages remain unsent after being approved. Messages sent to group do not appear. Group pages actually take several MINUTES to load or won't load at all. Calendar is on-again off-again. Yahoo is probably economizing, hiring the cheapest and least experienced labor and becoming the crappiest mail product available. Help is non-existent. A shame for what used to be THE go-to search engine. Melissa Mayer has left her imprint. Yahoo is now an embarrassment.
Hi. I am suddenly having the same exact issue. I also had to revert to the Basic Mail (which I don't like, but at least it is usable). The standard email is no longer usable (despite clearing my cache and cookies, etc of Chrome). Thank you.

can not find what I want and I know the folder exists!!

Please can you do something to improve Yahoo Mail. I have had to resort to using Basic Mail again. This is because the current version of Yahoo Mail is incredibly slow to scroll through, because it uses almost 100% of my CPU Usage. Please do something about the advertisements which I believe cause this.

yahoo has slowed down and does not open properly every time, often the sender id is missing. Congrats you have found the best way to destroy a company reputation........

No functions work on Yahoo Mail with Chrome. I can only click on "Inbox", if I select check-box of a mail to delete or anything it opens the mail. When it opens the mail if I click on delete even that does not work. Will be going back to Google for all mail apparently
