  2. I can no longer log into my email on my own computer without a code?

    I am incredibly angry that I can no longer type in MY email and MY password without a bunch of steps to actually log in. I have to check my email several times a day on a laptop and a desktop. How is this better? What is going on? After 20 years do I really have to get a new account.

  4. Navigation after deleting a message

    Clicking an email open and deleting it, would've expected the navigation to return to the previous page (inbox items). Now it showed the next message right after deleting, might be confusing if the emails are the same title replies, since the user didn't navigate to the other message in the first place.

    Hi there,

    You should be able to access any mail you have not deleted, regardless of the date from an active mailbox. To access your oldest mail, click on “Sort” on the top left of the message list and select “oldest to newest”
    Please see the following help article for details on how to search for mail by specific criteria, such as date range or folder:

    Hi there,

    The “Forward” icon is the small arrow pointing to the right at the top of each mail. To forward an email you have received, simply click on the forward icon, enter the address you wish to forward the email to and click send.

    Many thanks,
    Mail Support

  7. Missing icons in Inbox make it harder to navigate

    I hate that I can no longer click a search icon in the inbox to find all emails from that sender. The same goes for the missing trash icon as well. Managing email is now very cumbersome. It might be time to look for a better email provider.

    Make sure you access your Yahoo Mail by going to mail.yahoo.com and that you have the ‘’stay signed in’’ option checked on the sign in page. Also, keep in mind that if you clear your cache, cookies and history, you will need to sign in again.

  11. Yahoo mail has no button for changing language from Chinese to English....YAHOO HELP doesn't even have the answer, either!

    An account’s language is determined by where the account is registered. In this case, it can’t be changed. However, if your account was in English but suddenly changed to Chinese, you can let us know on our Community forums:

  12. Everything is highlighted. Please stop. When I select "move" all options are highlighted and it makes it very hard to read.

    Everything is highlighted. When I select and email or a folder, everything is highlighted. I cannot make it stop. Clicking outside the boundaries doesn't help either. Please stop highlighting everything. It is as if I have clicked and held the mouse over random information that I have not actually selected. (different than the background color that shows when multiple emails are selected). All the highlights are driving me absolutely crazy. Please help - Make it stop.

  14. With multiple accounts, it doesn't return you back to the main Yahoo page when you log out like it used to.

    I'd like to just get back to the main page when I log out on the multiple account page.

  15. stop redirecting away from mail and telling me where to vote

    Whenever I try to change email accounts I get directed to a Yahoo page telling me where to vote. I've already voted (thank you) and I just want to read my email. It happens every time today. Way to go Yahoo, keep it up and I'll be forced to abandon you bunch of yahoos.

  18. Navigation Glitchy

    On the mobile app I am unable to go back 1, 2, 3, or 4 days to search for an email I need to respond to. The app keeps adding in emails while I am navigating. This causes me to get lost. Also you keep asking for my list of contacts. It will be a cold day in **** before I consent to do that. It is none of your business. I stay with yahoo because everyone knows this as my email. But I can just as easily go to gmail. Please stop.

    The Mail app syncs with our servers to retrieve new messages as they come in. It might help to search for the email using the Search bar at the top. This will keep the list from getting updated.

    Thank you!

  19. unread right

    Like most of the changes but this one things keeps me going back to classic. The ability to right click and mark as read. Now it is 4 clicks. Maybe make the buttons at top configurable so I could mark unread without going into the...

    Best case bring back the right click.

    Thanks

    In New Mail, you can select an email and use SHIFT+K to mark it as read.
