  3. Unable to collect AOL and GMX mail

    I'd very much like to use Yahoo as my chief email account.

    However i'm unable to connect either my AOL or GMX accounts.

    I've tried several times mainly by desktop, but i've also tried the mobile app, but that didn't work either.

    Once Yahoo can collect email from these addresses, i'd switch to Yahoo straight away, but until then i'm forced to use different accounts.

  8. Fix whitelist and ad blocker issues

    I keep whitelisting yahoo and it repeatedly moves to classic mail and I have to re-whitelist.I dont like the ads and they are security risks but I whitelisted yahoo and it still sends me back to classic and then tells me to get the newest yahoo. Is it bi-polar? Im tired of the hassle and may just go use google mail where it is not so frustrating. Customer service number for solutions is not easy to find either.

  9. Maintain inbox sort order please

    I prefer my inbox to be sorted by Unread messages. If I move off the Inbox to another folder and then return to the Inbox, the sort order is no longer by Unread messages, but instead by Date: Newest On Top. This is quite annoying to have to set the sort order each time I navigate to other folders.

  11. Ad blocker is for my protection, not to deny you ad revenue

    Until third-party ads stop being a significant source of malware, using an ad blocker is a smart, even necessary, protective measure. When you can assure me that it's not possible for a malicious ad to make its way into my browser via Yahoo or any ad network is uses, I'll be happy to add Yahoo to my whitelist.

  13. Slow speed

    I don't mind the new format but I do mind the often slow web speeds of Yahoo.

  14. inbox

    Suddenly my Inbox is grouped by day/date. I don't want that, I don't need that. It takes up unnecessary space. Some people may want it so I'm not asking for it to be removed completely. Just offer the option to switch it off please?

  15. GET RID OF ADS ON SMALL BUSINESS EMAIL. I have paid to avoid ads. Forcing me to deal with them anyway is the opposite of customer service.

  17. New ads in Yahoo Business Mail should be optional

    I'm suddenly seeing an ad as the first 'new email' in my email thread on my Yahoo Business Email. I pay for Webhosting and Domains as a part of my yahoo business account. Since I have a paid service, I shouldn't be subjected to ads at the top of my feed which force me to read the headline thinking it is correspondence with a client. I should at the very least be able to go to the tab at the right of this ad and there should be a selection to remove ads from my paid business email account. I…

  19. There needs to be a way to delete contacts in bulk! It's archaic and inefficient to have to remove them one at a time.

    Allow me to see the whole list at once; provide checkboxes next to contacts so I can select many at once and delete them together (the same way I can with emails).
