  4. Improve your Spam filters PLEASE.

    I nearly deleted my account because of it. I'm sick to the back teeth of receiving emails regarding African Lottery wins, being the beneficiary of an inheritance, dodgy high end labelled goods at ridiculously low prices and the links to **** dating sites. It's shameful that Yahoo, who have some of the best IT guys in the world working for them can't get this right. My computer is a family computer that my kid has access to.

  5. Get rid of it. EVERY time yahoo changes things they are worse.

    Get rid of it. EVERY time yahoo changes things they are worse. Date separation ( earlier in the week, etc) makes mail harder to read, is a distraction, and WORST of all, is completely irrelevant. It unnecessarily spreads the reading field. The red delete email trash bin is too far away and covers the date when hovered over. it should be with all the other functions -'mark as read','search emails', and 'yellow star' this email........RIGHT WHERE IT USED TO BE!!!!! And adds in the middle of my email list instead of only at the top???????

  8. AD's

    The ad's slow the email process, during the composition of an email as the ad changes it freezes the program. There is no need to have ad's in the email section, seriously how many people do you honestly think watch the at all? I'll give this **** a chance, but there should be an option to change back .

  9. MAJOR SECURITY THREAT on mail.yahoo.com

    You have a security exploit on the mail.yahoo.com website. It is in the ad-generator portion of the page, which you lease/sell to third party vendors. The ad vendors are able to place malware into the ad code, so during an ad refresh on the page, it redirects the whole page to a malware/"click here to close"/virus website. THIS IS A MAJOR SECURITY THREAT. it tracks across 4 browsers (Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) and 3 operating systems. The flaw is in mail.yahoo.com...not the end-user. You can fix this in server side/client side coding if you have a good coder who puts…

  10. Search Results

    Search results only shows sub-folders locations - not the main folder & sub-folder as the Classic Mail version did. I use Yahoo for business and have main folders and sub-folders for organization and Client records. So the main folder for location along with the sub-folder is extremely important to view for the results. Please fix that!
    Also, When getting results from a search when your message layout is to the right, can you bring back it viewing as full screen like Classic Mail did? It doesn"t make sense to only be able to view partial results. Thank you!

  11. Slow Performace

    Too annoying and not even responsive when needed... Want to get ride off but couldn't. Either fix or remove your mail service. Everybody is fade up. There is no comparison in between gmail and yahoo. Gmail is much much better. At least make ymail quite lighter and fast responsive .

  13. Phishing Malware coming through Yahoo ads

    There is a phishing malware scheme coming through on yahoo advertising. It warns and threatens that your computer has been compromised, and then says through a recording that you need to call a number to restore the computer. DO NOT CALL THE NUMBER! Simply disconnect your internet connection and close your browser. Then restore the internet connection.
    This is annoying though, and most likely some people are unfortunately calling the phishing scheme. This has been going on for a couple of months now. Why has yahoo not fixed this? Yahoo is currently playing a part in distributing this phishing scheme…

  14. I don't mind ads but your ads are too intrusive.

    I don't mind ads, after all yahoo provides us with a free service. But ads can be tailored not to be intrusive when one uses a service. In that case I will white-list yahoo mail.

  15. Stop making it slower and more annoying.

    My idea? Go back to the fast, simple, easy to navigate service with minimal advertising and no "fluff". I've used this account for 20 years as my primary personal email and I'm a couple of days from done with this. I'm going back to the old version and if it's not noticeably faster I won't be bothering with your new "Ads before users" mentality,.

  16. update needed for printing pop up so multiple emails can be accessed at once in new yahoo email

    Please fix this in the new yahoo email.......
    In the old classic version of yahoo mail, I could click print email and the email would pop up in it's own box. I could do this for many emails at a time, each one in it's own pop up box. This then allowed me to handle all of my work at once, one by one, I could close the email print box as I completed the task at hand and not have to go back to my inbox and file those emails. BTW, I am not actually printing the emails, unless…

  18. Yahoo email is the primary reason I started using an ad blocker plug-in!

    The constant loading of ads in my browser was slowing down my entire computer, my browser was becoming overloaded and unresponsive creating horrid lag with every few characters typed. When I tried the ad blocker, it counted HUNDREDS of attempted ads in minutes, 3-5 were blocked with every click of my mouse within Yahoo mail. I cannot use this account WITHOUT an ad blocker, so I will just keep closing the stupid pop-up with the raised eyebrow scolding me for blocking ads. I've had this account since the very first year Yahoo offered email service. But at this rate I…

  20. Yahoo's own protocol for IMAP push email

    Hi,

    Yahoo does not support standard IMAP IDLE command. To get email timely, app must do the FETCH frequently and lead to battery drain.

    I'm working with a group of developers on an Android email app. According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Push-IMAP Yahoo has its own push protocol via UDP.

    Can you please share the technical details? I'd want to be able to add this function to the app I'm working on.

    Thanks
