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 don't know what changed but it takes forever for the mail inbox to load and to delete items, and it keeps freezing alot. Please fix this is my main email and I waste tons of times trying to check my emails.

greed and change for the sake of change will be the downfall of yahoo if you dont stop screwing around with email. If your goal is to shed customers, I say you are right on track. blue never ending circle when I go to open any email on my pc. something is seriously broken

The new yahoo mail is very slow in Windows 7 (64 bit) or Windows 10 Home (64 bit), latest update + Google Chrome (latest update), but i have checked also whit Mozilla Firefox (latest Update), Internet Explorer (latest update), or Microsoft Edge (latest version).
Alle same slowly problem whit yahoo mail, but not whit other mail.
The new version of Yahoo mail is very slow and the classic mail is better.
" Please do you return at Yahoo Classic Mail ".

In general, the Yahoo email page is too slow; it takes several seconds to:
1) open an email
2) return to inbox
3) have the check-mark appear after checking the box beside a given email (eg, to move it, delete it, etc.)
Basic email would be nice, but it seems to no longer be available (don't see that option in Settings)

App isn't sinctonized whith webmail
I cannot download word documents. And there is no place to contact customer service. Honestly yahoo, stop messing around with your new look and just provide basic email that works. That is all you need to do to keep us happy. I don't care about colors or fonts. Come on. Downloading documents.
If you have to post ads can you at least post them in English

External links from incoming emails no longer work. Before yesterday, all I had to do was click on a link in the email to go to whatever site. Starting last night, the links no longer worked. Please fix this as I hate having to open a separate email program just to click on the links to see what people are trying to show me.

Two of the message editing tools in the tool bar at the bottom of a message no longer work. Increase and decrease indent, in particular. These are useful when editing a message being composed.

For the past 2 months, in the new mail, each new word typed jumps to the next line. I've switched back to the basic mail. Can you please fix it?

I'm using chrome browser. Any way to fix this?

slow loading of emails, nonresponsive many times a day, even with high-speed broadband internet!

Emails will not load. Emails I've deleted keep showing up again, but none of my emails will open.

Ever since you changed the email I have not been able to reply to emails in any browser at any time; every time I type a letter, several more letters show up, by the time I am on the second word there is a whole line of gobbleygook--extra letters are added even when I delete or backspace. This has NEVER happened in the literally decades I have been using Yahoo email in a browser.
By amazing coincidence I have not had that problem in the new email app, which, also by amazing coincidence, started putting ads in the middle of my email at the same time.
