  1. Spam is not filtered or blocked

    You need to let us filter these *@myip*.com *@emailverfy.com into the trash! Your filters don't do that and at best only put them in the Spam folder. You should also let us BLOCK messages from a specific site, not just the user name. I would like to block all these @myip*.com emails but you don't let us do that. If you can't get this fixed soon, I'm going to use gmail for my real email and just let this yahoo account be for junk.

  2. COPYING CONTENT FROM EXCEL

    Please allow the user to copy/paste from source to yahoo mail and keep the format at the source. When copying from Word that has tab delimited columns the columns are no longer aligned in Yahoo mail. When copying from Excel the user should have the option of keeping the grid boxes.

  3. spam

    Spam folder does not update item count until the folder is actually slected.

    Since Yahoo has the habit of flagging my legit mail as spam (50% of what get flagged as spam is not), I need to know when I have new items in my spam folder. The count indicator does not update until after I've opened the folder for 10-20 seconds. So that means I need to manually check my spam box more often than my inbox so I don't miss mail.

    This is basic functionality that was lost with the forced move to the "improved" interface.

  4. deal view

    1) Kill the banner that appears above the email message. It pushes down the actual message and is extremely irritating.

    2) The collated deal view is fine in that I can look at it if I choose to.

    Any time you do something that makes it more difficult for me to access the actual mail message, drives me to consider a different mail product.

  7. AD's

    The **** ad's slow the email process, during the composition of an email as the ad changes it freezes the program. There is no need to have ad's in the email section, seriously how many people do you honestly think watch the **** at all? I'll give this **** a chance, but there should be an option to change back .

  10. New mail format is awful

    New mail format is awful. It needs more contrast. The line work should be darker, it blends in WAY TOO MUCH with the white background.

  11. Improve Themes. Currently only 4 photos to choose from.

    There used to be a huge choice of themes. Now we have four photos to choose from. Very disappointing. Please resolve.

  13. saving email address to contacts

    Why can't I save new contacts from the email? I used to have an option to add the email to the contacts. A pop up would come up and I'd fill in the missing information. Why can't you fix that and bring it back?

  14. MAJOR SECURITY THREAT on mail.yahoo.com

    You have a security exploit on the mail.yahoo.com website. It is in the ad-generator portion of the page, which you lease/sell to third party vendors. The ad vendors are able to place malware into the ad code, so during an ad refresh on the page, it redirects the whole page to a malware/"click here to close"/virus website. THIS IS A MAJOR SECURITY THREAT. it tracks across 4 browsers (Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) and 3 operating systems. The flaw is in mail.yahoo.com...not the end-user. You can fix this in server side/client side coding if you have a good coder who puts…

  15. New version is a downgrade missing lots of features, list below:

    1. In an incoming email, lost the menu you would get when clicking on the sender address. No fast way to add to the contacts, search email from, etc.

    2. When sending emails. "Add photos from recent emails"

    3. When sending emails. "Add several files from from recent emails"

    4. When sending emails. "Share files from cloud providers"

    5. Customize the interface to avoid the icon with the monogram near name or address of people in the From, To and Cc fields?

    6. RTL support: In the previous version when typing Hebrew it would automatically sense it and change the…

  16. By listening to your Users!

    I don't like the new mail. I don't like the format, the childish colors, or that the spam folder does not show the number of messages without having to go into that folder. And please, stop constantly changing me from classic mail to this format!

  17. Disposable addresses broken

    Not sure where to post - today did not receive any of my news emails, although my main account is working fine, the disposable email addresses that have worked for the past years are not coming through today. Sent a test email to one of these disposable email addresses for my yahoo.co.za account - failed with "This user does not have a yahoo.co.za account". Tried with my older yahoo.co.in disposable email addresses, these also fail and again the main yahoo.co.in account works.

  18. blocking domain

    I want to block a domain. Blocking the email address does no good because the spammers just use another name each time.
