    Hi there,

    At this time we do not offer the option to schedule an email to be sent. You can however write the email and save it to your drafts folder. This will then allow you to quickly send the message when the time comes.

  3. You can put the "block" function back in the "more" options. Sorting through all the spam to find personal emails is a pain in the *****

    Easy, . . reinstate the blocking function. How hard can it be? You ask how you can improve New Mail, . . . you have your answer !

  4. blocking unwanted emails

    I recently provided my email address as part of a consumer response, and now I find my email is being routinely spammed daily by fictitious email addresses. These emails are coming from addresses where a valid email address has been hijacked, and the "new" user has simply placed an additional part in the address. Such as Joe.Blow@vresp##.amazon.com or Donotrespond@vmail##.infonet.net. Can you restore the use of the * as a wildcard identifier so I don't have to individually block all these? As in @vresp.. or @vmail... This used to work, but it is no longer recognized…

    Hi there,

    Thank you for the feedback. We will that this into consideration on future updates,

    In the mean time I would suggest mark these emails as “spam.” This will tell our internal filters to block then before they arrive.

  6. Change News Feed Setting in Yahoo mail - Please

    Change the news feed setting in yahoo;

    Either: allow a choice of what news source to view, add an option to turn off the news feed altogether, or present news w/o bias or leaning.

    Been with yahoo since 1995. Please do not cause us to abandon Yahoo over these forced tactics to promote a particular political ideology!

  7. Receiving emails from the equivalent .com domain

    I have an email address ending .co.uk. This means it is impossible to create or receive emails directed to the .com equivalent address. Previous answers posted from technical support do not work. Maybe these are old responses aimed at a previous version of yahoo.

    Hi there,

    Within Yahoo Mail the option to switch to Basic is still there. Once you click on the gear icon you will need to now click on more settings. You will see the option to move to basic on the left-hand side bar.

    Hi there,

    You would need to make sure that notification on both the Yahoo app and the mobile device are turned off. You can check this within the settings of the app.

  12. Length of time for keeping emails in In Box

    I keep certain emails in my In Box that I prefer to keep for more than 6 months and they disappear. I cannot find them. Only one month at time will be retained in my In Box for some reason. I want the option to choose how long to remain in IN BOX.

    Hi there,

    Emails will not disappear as long as the account is active.

    If you are noticing that emails are being deleted this could be due to how the account is being accessed outside of yahoo.com or the Yahoo App.

    We see this when a 3rd party email client such as Outlook or a stock mobile app is being used.

  13. I want to block a troublesome sender. How do I do it? I see no option in Settings.

    Have an option in settings to block a sender. It's supposed to be there but it's not.

  14. Allow me to turn off the news notifications

    2 days ago, I started receiving a news notification on my cell phone through my yahoo email. I do not want to see these news updates. It's all doom and gloom. I'm halfway intelligent and if I want to read news about the virus, I'll go find it myself. I do not need it forced upon me! So, how do I turn off the news notifications? Thank you.

    If you are currently using the newest version of the Yahoo Mail app, you are able to disable these notifications. Click your profile picture, click notifications, and turn off the coronavirus updates option.

    You may just need to adjust the zoom settings in your web browser. Hold down the CTRL key and press the + key at the same time until the text looks right. You can also hold down CTRL and press the 0 key at the same time to reset the zoom to default.

    Thank you!
