  1. Stop messing with the mail. It worked before and now it doesn't half the time.

    Return to the previous Yahoo Mail format. You have screwed everything about mail up. Half the time, I get error messages whenever I try to the log in screen. Lots of times, individual mails don't load when clicked. Lots of times, Yahoo says it can't delete a message, after I have read it and chosen to delete it.

    If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does know.

  6. mail skipped when sorting by unread and changing tab

    When I sort by unread emails, then open an unread email and pass to a new tab after clicking a link inside the email, when I go back to the mail tab a different unread email is shown. This doesn't allow me to use the new version of yahoo mail as I often need to open links inside emails.

  7. The New Yahoo email is not efficient in attach/share large file compare to classic yahoo mail.

    Classic yahoo mail is the best. Do not keep asking change to new yahoo mail since there is no option for attach large files. Please update the new yahoo mail ASAP to have an option for attach/share large files from cloud providers.

  8. Default or selected email message is not being highlighted

    This is an error on a functionality which I think needs fixed. Below is the scenario...


    1. I am in the Inbox

    2. Clicked on the recent email message (maybe any email in the Inbox but needs testing) and opened and read

    3. Close the email message by clicking the "X" or hit "Esc" button on the keypad

    4. I expect the current email message row to get highlighted, i.e. default row should be highlighted \ selected

    5. Instead the selection is on a different message \ row which is a concern

    This is a concern as, if I (or a user) closes the email…

  9. Missingfeature to open password protected attachments after entering the right password.

    Yahoo is the only email service I know of which says, password protected attachments cannot be open. In all other emails, it gives users a prompt to enter password of the pdf file which has come in email attachments and if entered correctly, then it opens the pdf and you can view them easily.
    It is very useful when checking bank statements. Downloading is unsafe if you are on public computers. Checking online helps keep these documents secure.
    Hope Yahoo will develop these soon. Thank you.

  10. separate delete and Spam buttons

    separate the DELETE and SPAM buttons at top of mails, or better make SPAM a right click option. it is too easy to mark an item as SPAM accidentally and be deleted from a senders mailing list even though i requested to be on it.

  13. When will the "Not Spam" button be fixed?

    Work emails keep going into spam.
    I keep marking them as not spam.
    I have a filter for it to go into the right folder.
    They keep going into spam AFTER I mark them as NOT SPAM.

    When will this be fixed?

  14. Revise Multifactor Authentication security for Yahoo! mail (I detected an issue with mail)

    As is commonly known, phone numbers are recycled after their allotted usage. This means that when a user's phone enters recycling, their authentication number is recycled back into use.

    This presents a significant security flaw. When a user's phone enters recycling, their authentication number is recycled back into use.

    Since Yahoo! does not require a user to know an email address to recover an account but only a phone number, this presents a significant security flaw.

    The new buyer of an old phone number can login to Yahoo! mail, type the phone number and access the email of the previous…

    Accounts can require either a phone number or alternate email address on the account to recover it online, depending on what is set up.

    Yahoo does deactivate accounts that aren’t accessed in 12 months for inactivity. In this state, they can’t be reactivated.

  15. Bug: dragging mails from inbox to another folder causes auto-scroll of folder list to keep scrolling, even when mouse is not moving anymore

    Bugreport, not sure if this is the correct place for it but can't find a better link:

    When dragging a mail from inbox to a folder, if the folder list is bigger than the screen, causes the list to auto scroll. That's fine. On 4K displays with a scaling factor of 150% however, the list won't stop scrolling when I stop moving my mouse, making the folder scroll away underneath my mouse pointer and making me "hunt" down the moving folder and timing when to stop pressing down to drop the mail in the correct folder. It's very annoying, and…

  16. spelling verification should be contained in Yahoo and not in the web browser...it doesn't work!

    bring back the spelling verification as web browser doesn't check your email content. It should be included in Yahoo.

  17. Microsoft Edge - Unsupported Browser

    I am getting an "Unsupported Browser" warning while using the Microsoft Edge browser.

    As far as I know, I should have the latest version of the Edge browser.
    Version 25.10586.672.0.

    Does this mean that Microsoft Edge is not a supported browser?
