  1. Turn off the violent news feed in my spam folder

    I don't need to hear about people being slashed with machete and homeless people getting targeted by shooters just because I empty my spam folder.

  8. Life is hard enough! Stop locking homeless and poor people out of their email!

    Yahoo mail's required security measures very often lock people with very limited resources out of their email accounts - accounts they may desperately need to communicate with government agencies and other safety net organizations. Allow individuals to opt out of these measures, like requiring a cell phone or another email address. Stumbling blocks like these can very well stand in the way of people and their children getting food and shelter.

  12. Enhance interface

    Yahoo needs to step up and improve like gmail. We cannot control spam emails that automatically going into SPAM folder.
    Come up with settings where user can control SPAM. Yahoo are keep recognizing legit emails as SPAM which is ridiculous.
    Come up with simple theme like yahoo, easy and more control for users.

  14. Comparison!

    Can Yahoo follow the example of Google? I pay no extra for gmail to filter out SPAM and i get minimal, yet, when I did pay extra for Yahoo I was still getting inundated with so much phishing spam it throttled my internet streaming!
    Now I get retaliatory submissions every time I post feedback. Enough!

  19. Scam spam received email addresses are being added auto suggestions for compose email

    When I am on the 'compose email' page, when I click in the 'send to' box the first ten auto suggestions for recipients for the email are obvious scam spam addresses.
    Either have no drop down auto suggestions for sending emails to, or clear the scum out of the list.
    Just cos some thief sent me an email, they are now top of my contacts 'send to' list. The emails did go to spam, so why add to contacts?
    Like 'suggesting' get mugged.
