auto forwarding would be good!
How about setting up the forwarding service available in all areas BEFORE you cut off the existing service?

The forwarding mail discontinuation is very setback for all of us in India. We are ready to pay for Yahoo Mail Account Pro but it shows that the feature is not availble in our country. Kindly inform when can we expect the feature in India, Asia

I can't pay for the $12 annual subscription to forward emails just because I'm outside of US. ZIP code and State are mandatory. WHY? Who would make such a decision? That's why we forward emails, because we use more mature platforms and not have to deal with this.

We are very Old Users over here & we want Auto Forwarding Option again as we cant Switch to your new Business Mail.
Shall we use only Gmail so we can get all Services.
Request to Add again Auto Forwarding

One of the most useful functions on Yahoo mail was the Auto Forward feature. With this gone, there is much less need to use Yahoo Mail.

All of a sudden my other email accounts disappear and I cant receive mail from my other accounts unless I start paying for an upgraded email??? WTH . Not happening here so nice try!! Very disappointed with yahoo mail right now! I will just have to get rid of yahoo mail and have email sent to one of my other accounts that arent yahoo!! Thanks for nothing!

Yahoo was/is my first email ID. I have been with Yahoo since geocities days. Now, with disabling of auto-forward I am left with little choice but to switch.
In my region, the option to subscribe to Pro/Forwarding is not available. But Yahoo still went ahead and disabled auto-forward on my account. Iam now pushed to a corner with no option but to switch to gmail. Very disappointed. If the plan is to introduce Subscription to all, then the disabling of auto-forward should go in tandem with the launch of subscription offer. This is really callous and daft.

It hasn't happened yet but I've been notified that Yahoo is going to stop Autoforwarding. This is the single stupidest idea I have ever heard. First off, they only give us about 2-3 days notice and they claim the change is because it is not secure. Based on the hacking issues they've had in the past, I would say Auto Forwarding was not the problem. They also say I can pay for a higher account that still has this option. Tell me, with so many email options out there now, why would I pay for something that is treated as a basic function on other platforms? The cherry on top is that the other suggestion they make is to have Yahoo be the base and have other emails sent to Yahoo instead of the other way around, essentially forcing users to use a free option on another platform to forward to Yahoo because they decided it wasn't going to be free on their platform anymore. RIDICULOUS!!!
I understand that this must be a competitive market but if Yahoo wants to remain competitive they have to avoid making decisions like this.

Please make this feature available to users in India. If that is not possible, at least provide a separate paid provision for auto-forwarding emails.
