  1. Junk/Spam email dropping in inbox

    Hi - In recent weeks I've started seeing high number of spam/junk email dropping in my inbox and not directed to the junk email folder. Trying to mark each of them as spam or move it to junk email folder but this is not manageable. These should have been automatically kept under Junk Email. If this is a strategy to point users to Premium service to have the junk email filtering/blockage that's not correct as this should be a basic email service. If that's the case then I will have depart from Yahoo Email after at least 25 years.

  2. In the past few weeks I have seen a huge amount of spam that's getting through your filters. Impossible to set my own filters to filter it.

  3. spam filter

    The spam filter is NOT working AT ALL. I get SO MANY spam emails to my inbox every single day, and it's incredibly annoying! I mark each spam email as spam, so I'm not sure why the spam filter isn't working. FIX IT!!!

  4. Excessive Spam

    It appears yahoo has started allowing excessive spam through the spam filter. If this is a ploy to force users to upgrade to plus, that is not a good policy. I'm not so sure upgrading to Plus would even solve this issue. I used to get 2-5 spam daily (also as many legitimate email into my spam folder) and now over the past few days its almost 100 spam not caught. I spend the time blocking spam but it just keeps getting through. It may be time to find a better option after 20+ years using Yahoo. Unfortunate.

  5. Stop spam

    Why can't you stop the spam? Getting the same content from numerous email addresses that are supposed to come from places like Costco, Shoppers Drugs, PC, etc., these are all spam and I have sent them to spam every day. You really need to improve your spam filter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. DON'T Trust and Suggest Sending UNSUBSCRIBE to Spammers!

    DON'T Trust and Suggest Sending UNSUBSCRIBE to Spammers!

    Problem 1: You are Trusting SPAM !!

    Yahoo! "Tips to avoid spam" says "Never reply to email subscriptions asking to be removed" but You Do It ??
    We know how to Unsubscribe!

    PROBLEM 2: If it's SPAM/Phishing
    The UNSUBSCRIBE link IS LIKELY ALSO SPAM/PHISHING !!

    Your SPAM recognition sucks!

    Trust US the Users!

    https://help.yahoo.com/kb/manage-spam-mailing-lists-yahoo-mail-sln28056.html

    "Unsubscribe from sender
    When you mark a message from a mailing list as spam and we trust the sender, you'll be given the option to unsubscribe rather than marking it as spam.

    Select Unsubscribe and you will no…

  7. Yahoo Mail+ - Yearly subscription fee

    Offer a yearly subscription payment option in addition to the monthly pester-you-to-death choice. I'll happily sign up for Yahoo Mail+ then.

  8. ads

    Please allow me to block ads for holidays like Mother's Day. My mom passed last year and the last thing I need is constant ads about sending her flowers! There is no '3 dot' link on these ads to indicate that I don't like the ads. Fix this.

  9. spam

    At this point, I can only guess between two scenarios under the Yahoo roof:
    1) Nearly everyone is gone, and there is no one left actually servicing these requests.
    2) Yahoo wants users to abandon.

    The spam handling is a joke. There is still not even a category of feedback about it, let alone any even modest effort to filter even the most egregious spam. By all means, take a look at what I've manually filtered every day and see if you agree. Just taking a look, I have a feeling, is well past the effort level that I'd ever…

  12. Don't empty peoples accounts.

    You emptied all my emails I had in my account, why? I had them stored there thinking they're safe and I don't have the addresses I had there written down. I didn't have access to the net for quite awhile and checked in when I could. Now I'll never be able to contact the people I had stored. I have another account with netzero and I didn't lose anything. What's the deal?

  14. STOP OFFENSIVE EMAILS!

    Yahoo needs to do a better job of filtering out junk and offensive mail. I do not need to receive 3 or 4 emails A DAY about African Manhood! Seriously. Can't you find a way to block all email from .uk. I'm sick and tired of having so much garbage in my email.

  16. Spam is out of control the past two weeks, getting worse, and this is with Yahoo Mail Plus!

    The subject says it all. And tech support had me check my filters, that's all they could offer. This is a paid service, Yahoo Mail Plus, with "premium" spam filtering. It has been decent the past 10+ years I have been a customer, but recently has been failing -- worse every day.

  17. Improve email

    Here's how you can improve New Mail. I'm getting less than 10% of the emails I used to get. Still 100% of the spam, however. In addition, all the old emails I had saved vanished as well. I'm switching to another account, hopefully they will do a better job. The pretty new features look lovely though.

  20. Link activated sender address field enables phishing schemes.

    The way Yahoo is displaying the from field with a web link is enabling phishing schemes. It makes a malicious email look very authentic, and makes it very difficult to view the actual sender's address. I received an email that displays Intuit E-Commerce Service quickbooks@notification.intuit.com as the sender, and when I hover over the address it shows a contact card for Intuit and a link to Intuit.com. The body of the email says that I've been charged $350, and they have renewed a service I never signed up for, and clearly isn't from Intuit. Yahoo needs to make it more…
