Need Setting to Enable/Disable Calendar and/or ability to Block EMAILED INVITES
Add a Yahoo Setting to Disable All Calendar Invites.
I don't use Yahoo Calendar at all, and recently have received 4 invites whose content is SPAM - soliciting fake content to obtain my information.
THIS IS VERY ANNOYING - as I also get my yahoo email via MS Outlook - and DESPITE not accepting any of these - THEY SHOW in my Outlook Calendar.
This is both a privacy and security concern as these are not easily blockable.
Or instead of new setting, would it be possible to add to the Yahoo Filter types - add a type of filter to stop attachments by extension (like how most email apps block executable attachments), for calendar type attachments, something like the ability to block any attachment ending in.ics to automatically send it to the trash?
Or better yet, add to filters the ability for a user to edit the type of attachments they can receive, have it prepopulated with usual block types like (.bat,.exe,.macro,.reg) so user could just add .ics? I am not an expert, is that the right and only calendar invite extension - and would it work to block/redirect them to trash so they don't get auto-loaded into the calendar?
A reputable program like Yahoo - should consider that not all users will want all features, and some of these features cause problems for the users. Many companies, i.e. my Anti-Virus provider keep adding new parts to itself, taking more memory to run these 'new' features, but I don't want them there... why force features on a user - allow the user to decide what they want to use.
Been using Yahoo as a primary email for like 20 years now...
