  2. I am extremely upset at the LACK of response I am getting from Yahoo. Two days ago my e-mail on my other yahoo account was wiped out.

    I have/had another Yahoo account. I can no longer get into that account. For some reason, it will not accept my password, which I know is correct because I have it saved on my google account and Avast account. There is a lack of communication at Yahoo to solve these problems. I work from my computer from home and have a lot of information on my other account that I need. I have been waiting over 48 hours for a response from "customer service" at Yahoo. I was asked to provide some information for my account recovery, which I did…

  6. Stop auto add contacts

    You must stop auto add for every email I receive or send. I have over 5000 contacts and need to turn that function off and delete most of them. Please fix this ASAP!

  7. Phone number displayed on Yahoo contact card and screen display

    I am concerned about the privacy and security of my contact card, which displays my email address and phone number in the emails addressed to me and the display on the top right hand side of the screen when I open my 'sent' emails. These features expose my personal contact information to onlookers. It is also irrational for me to view my own phone number on the contact card when the email id is already displayed. I hope Yahoo will provide an option to change the contact card display and the screen display soon.

  8. contacts only mine

    Only my own contacts should show in my Contact list, NOT those of other Yahoo accounts I use! If available ought to be a setting I can turn off. I want ONLY MY OWN CONTACTS available.

    Only the contacts for your account show in the address book. Any ones you don’t recognize may have been synced from your phone or other device you use to access Yahoo.

  9. Adding New Contacts

    Why is it hard to add a contact from an email? It should be one of the main basic uses with the email. I search two different sites and they did not work for me. I should not have to type out the persons name, number, and email to add a contact when it is right there when I scroll my mouse over the name. Why is this not a common sense and user friendly aspect of the email?

  16. Where are my contacts now? I can't find them

    Where do I find my contacts now? And further, why do you keep messing with something that works with your new "BETTER IDEAS"?
    You're once again changing what most people liked, like the classic
    portfolio, to an incredible alternative. YOU

    The Sending Name for the account can only be changed from the desktop web version of Yahoo Mail, and not from a mobile device. Follow these steps below to change it.
     
    In New Mail:
    1. Sign in to Yahoo Mail.
    2. Mouse over the Settings menu icon (Gear) | select More Settings.
    3. Click Mailboxes.
    4. Click on the Yahoo email account.
    5. Enter a new name in the “Your Name” field.
    6. Click Save.

    Keep in mind that other apps may have their own settings for your Sending Name such as the default Mail app on an iPhone or Android. Whatever is in place there will override what’s set up on the Yahoo account. If the wrong name appears on your emails after following the steps above, double-check the settings in the app you’re using.

    Thank you!

  18. Stop blocking emails from legitimate senders

    You have started blocking emails from a legitimate sender. How can this be fixed, as it is particularly annoying. It is like the postman deciding not to deliver a letter to my house without asking my permission.

  19. Make it stop jumping back to the top of the email while I'm reading my emails!!!!

    Every time I begin typing in an email address, the cursor jumps backward, deleting a letter I've already typed. When I try to correct it, it will take the letter, but moving on, continues to jump back and replace letters. Can't stand this new version.

    Don’t waste time adding new recipients to your Yahoo Contacts. Let Yahoo Mail do it for you automatically.

    In Yahoo Mail, mouse over the Settings menu icon Small gear icon | select Settings.
    Click Writing email.
    Select Automatically add new recipients to Contacts.
    - You can deselect this option if you change your mind.
    Click Save.
