    The best way to resolve this is to mark the emails as “Not Spam”, that way you can train the spam filter to better identify important emails in the future. Also if you use a mobile device or email client to access your mail over IMAP, please check the Spam filters in that application, to make sure it’s not marking important emails as spam.

    By allowing us to choose a password we want without saying it's too weak. Let us have what we choose! Everything I pick is too weak for you. *******!

    If there’s something unusual about your sign in or recent activity, we’ll ask you to go through another verification step after you’ve entered the correct password. This helps protect your account from unauthorized access. You may be prompted to get a verification code on your Yahoo app, recovery phone number, or recovery email address for any of the following reasons:

  6. less ads

    We should have the option to remove ads without having to pay for anything or download any software to keep them off our screen

    When I login to Yahoo email, I am always prompted to provide a phone number so that I do not get locked out. I am never going to provide a phone number. Is there any way to stop having that prompt ask me to provide a phone number for recovery? I would rather not share my phone number.

    Hi there,

    This prompt will never stop as long as a mobile number is not listed on the account. We do required that an account have a valid mobile number listed in case the account does in fact need to be recovered. Currently when a new account is created a mobile number is require otherwise an account cannot be created.

  8. Viewing sorted emails

    I used to be able to sort 'sent' emails by 'recipient' (used it many times). Then one day it was not there anymore. Please give it back.

    Hi there,

    The option for sorting your inbox are:
    - Newest on top
    - Oldest on top
    - Unread
    - Starred
    - Sender

    These are the only options we currently have for sorting he inbox.

    Hi there,

    We see a few reason why emails may be deleted. One, the customer has deleted or whomever has access to the account has deleted those messages. Two, the account has not been accessed for 12 months or more and will be deactivated deleting all content. The third and most common, a 3rd party email client is being used such as Outlook or the stock iOS app on a mobile device.

  12. Do Not Delete ALL emails without warning user

    I hadn't logged into this account for a while as it was getting bogged down with junk mail. However, my grandfather just passed and I had a lot of photos here as well as years of emails. I logged on to find out Yahoo deleted all of this history and memories. I understand wanted to clear space but you have my phone number and other email. Why wouldn't you warn me? This is so disheartening.

    Hi there,

    I do apologize for your loss. Unfortunately when an account has not been accessed for a period of time it will become inactive and the contents removed.

    By signing back in you did reactivate the account but those previous contests are gone and cannot be recovered.

  13. Allow MS Outlook to download email messages & leave them on the server.

    Just started receiving these messages when attempting to download my email messages using MS Outlook 365:

    Task 'Bill Tan Investments - Receiving' reported error (0x80042104) : 'Your email server does not have the features required to allow messages to be left on the server.'

    I have two accounts that won't work now. This is new; in the last week AND IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GET ANY ANSWER FROM YAHOO UNLESS YOU PAY FOR IT! F that!

    I can read & send email via browsers or iOS however I cannot download messages from the server. I prefer to save my important messages…

  14. Change the name that appears on my outgoing emails

    There is no way for me to change the name on the outgoing emails from our Yahoo Small Business account. I've tried all of the ways that the support team have given me, which look like they work until I send an email and the recipient still thinks they are talking with my boss instead of me. Solutions on the support site either don't work (https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Yahoo-Help-Community/ct-p/english), or are broken links (https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Tips-and-tricks/Sent-emails-show-wrong-name-in-Yahoo-Mail/td-p/445701/jump-to/first-unread-message). I'm pretty disappointed in this service that as far as i know we are paying $70 a year for.

  16. Stop the propaganda

    I cannot find a way to turn off news notifications. I know your email is free, so I guess I have to read your news (true or not). Although it is your company and you can chose to do and say what you want, you would please more people if your news was balanced rather than trying to sway our opinion. Like most companies today, you seem to think you are the only source of information on the "World Wide Web". No one in this day and age is going to trust just one source for their information. Tell the…

  19. Sliding delete

    Individual emails now slide to delete on mobile. I am trying to scroll up and down, it is trying to slide emails left & right and delete them. Its too easy to delete by accident. im not even in the body of the email, just in the general mailbox view where all i see is the titles. I need to scroll up & down to make the window toggle button appear on my browser.
