  1. Contacts not popping up when inputting an email address into a new email

    Contacts I regularly use are not popping up when I begin to type the first few letters of their name or email address. What is the point of adding them to my contacts if I still have to go look them up?

  3. no way to COMPOSE SEND an email...in a color other than, one by one..NO setting

    So, most email web based services, let you 'set' a color, to compose your emails in, so that, ALL of your sent out emails, get sent, in a color. not black. yahoomail has no such setting.
    Only able to make certain portions of a email, or all of it, a color- one by one for THAT email. No way to make a 'setting' for all composed emails, to be in a certain color. that is not 2019 more like 1919

    You can change the color of your email text when comping by using the “Text color” button (3 colored dots) in the toolbar in the Compose window.

    Thank you!

  5. adding unrelated friends to my emails to other friends, stop it! stop linking my emails to all friends when I write a email.

    Please stop linking my emails to friends or family that I have not chosen. I can do cc: to whom I want to have contact with! It's annoying and the friends don't even know each other but they sure know about each other (in a good way) But enough is enough. Let Me Chose!

    Yahoo mailboxes do have a maximum storage size of 1TB. However, the max message size needs to be under 25MB in order to send. If you need to send a larger file, you can try using a cloud-storage service.

    Thanks!

    The Yahoo Mail Pro removes all ads from your Yahoo Mail experience! To manage spam emails, the best you can do is to report those messages as spam. (https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN3402.html) Depending on the number of similar reports, our Anti-Spam filter may take some time to react and start actively blocking them from reaching you.

    In the meantime, you can either create filters(https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/SLN15994.html?impressions=true) or block those email addresses.(https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/SLN16025.html?impressions=true)

  11. Send button insanity.

    I compose a new email and one of your annoying popups obscures the send button. The only way to remove it is to click on the popup link. And no, it is not a popup for someone else...it is for another obfuscating yahoo service of some nature or another. and what is worse... I didnt even know for certain if the send button was underneath it. As far as I was concerned... the send button was nonexistent. This is just unbelievable - . it is just absolutely abhorrent. I want simple and intuitive. It is email...not rocket science. I don't…

  13. Stop the name pop up when replying to an email. I can't see what I am typing after I hit reply.

    Stop the name pop up when replying to an email. I can't see what I am typing after I hit reply. Stupid feature to have a person in the To line pop up. I know who I am sending email to. To have the pop up hover right over the email itself is bad programming. Fix it please.

  15. Please consign <newsletter@email.buydig.com> to SPAM PERMANENTLY

    I have NEVER signed up for a newsletter from buydig.com and have no interest in their content. I have marked email newsletters from this company as SPA, NUMEROUS times but for some reason YAHOO seems to be unable to get their spam blocker to work!!
    I am not sure what I should do, where I should complain to get this fixed.

    Make sure you are marking these emails as Spam from the Yahoo Mail interface and not just moving them to the Spam folder using another mail client. If you’re marking these emails as Spam correctly, but they keep coming to your inbox, please let us know via our Help pages or our Community forums:

    https://help.yahoo.com

    Thank you!

  16. attach other inbox emails to a new/reply email

    Why can't we attach another email to a reply or brand new email? This is such an amazing and helpful feature of other email systems that I'm surprised it is not standard in Yahoo at this point.

  17. Text stuck as bold when typing new message (in desktop/pc)!

    The "B" button to disable bold text is not working. The text is stuck as bold when typing a message in desktop browser. It's normal on the Android app.

    The bold text can be disabled temporarily by pressing on "Aa" then choosing font as "modern" (as it is) then pressing "B" directly after then typing.
    The text will return to normal and the "B" will function normally afterwards.

    It's a simple bug to fix I think.

  19. spell check

    Spell Check

    Chrome has spell check but only from within their own gmail system. If they can provide this service why can't Yahoo? Must I switch to gmail permanently? You'll lose my Premium payments...

    Most modern web browsers have an automatic spellcheck built in. Check your browser’s help documentation to make sure this feature is enabled and working correctly.

    Thank you!

  20. spellcheck

    I love that you now have a proper spellcheck. But I cannot see the word options. another box covers the whole thing. Please look into this and stop having this box appear.
    But I must say sometimes the box with the word option appears well away from the box. Just get rid of the undo box. Thank you
