  3. 2022 January: Chrome browser unable to send emails, takes forever to load new page

    Unable to send emails on Chrome Browser, all the help topics date back to 2018 - not helpful! It's also taking a long time to load any new page (e.g. if I navigate from Inbox to a different folder the folder page does not load until I hit the browser refresh button)

  6. IN Reply - remove "x" button NOT WORKING

    When reply or reply all, the senders and recipients auto populated in TO and CC cannot be removed.
    The remove "x" button is there but clicking does not do anything.
    If you add new recipients, those can be removed by clicking "x"
    Something is wrong with the auto populated To and CC

    Hi there! In order to protect all users, we temporarily block sending on accounts that are flagged with spam-like or suspicious sending habits. For more info and tips on how to avoid this in the future, please review this article: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN3406.html

    You will need to reset your password and wait for this block to expire. It usually takes 24h to have this block removed, however make sure you’re not trying to send any messages during this time.

    Hope this helps!

  14. After 18 years with Yahoo account, cannot attach/upload photos from PC.

    Although, for a completely unknown reason, as I did nothing differently, one photo attached a week and a half ago. I have no other devices. Just the PC, and a digital camera.

    I keep trying everything available to me, and I did read that it was now necessary to use the Yahoo app, but I have no device(s). I also do not have live interaction ability via computer. Why it attached the photo the other week, and hasn't since, is a mystery.

    Sending out one photo every couple of weeks is important to me. Thank you.

  17. Disposable emails

    The disposable email set up is terrible on almost every level. Yahoo appears to place no value or importance on email addresses in this modern age. They appear to be stuck in the nineties. Just completely incompetent and out of touch company. Obviously when setting up a disposable email and a mistake is made or change is needed one should be able to easily make changes to the "base name". The arrogance, incompetence and failure of tech company's in staggering.

  19. Worthless 'Fix email address' warning

    When I copied an email address from a message body to the To: field, I accidentally copied the closing ">" with it. Yahoo Email warned me to "Fix it", but wouldn't let me edit the address - I could only completely delete it. ??? How hard is it to NOT convert an invalid email address into one of these stupid "balloons" that you insist on using?

    Please try double-clicking on the email address and then delete the surplus sign.

    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. Next to this setting, on the left you have the Bold and Italic options.
