  2. Please stop making sign in more complicated. Other apps work witout the added complication.

    Your second level security sending something to my phone rarely works out here in the rurals. I usually have to "try another way" which texted me numbers. Not terrible, but now you want letters that don't even make a word. I'll be trying to remove the extra protection now. It takes way to long to access mail now. Please go back to simple. You know another program I just used generated a scrambled password, and had my computer remember it. Super simple...and it worked.

  3. How to Change Password Instructions

    I have followed your instructions to no avail. No where under Account Security, Manage Accounts or EVERY OTHER choice can I find a box or title that says Chang Your Password! Guess I'll need to create an all new account to change my password. :(

  6. Sending SMTP email says my password is wrong but it isn't.

    Why do I keep getting errors since Verizon took over? When I try to send email using Thunderbird it says my password is wrong when it isn't. I use a password manager to manage my passwords and I can login.

    I constantly get errors saying my email violates a Verizon policy. It doesn't. Copy and paste the same content to a new email and is would be sent okay.

    But now I can no longer send or receive email using Thunderbird. Sending says my password is wrong. Receiving says that the server is not available.

    What on earth is going…

  8. For one when we have a issue with signing in and ring up your representatives can do something about it

    Maybe have your reps be able to resolve your issue and not just say ring back in 24 hours and not give you a answer why that will be any different

  9. Fix or Provide the Change Password Option

    As neither does my mobile phone app yahoo mail have the option of change password nor does my PC Browsers as described for

    Change your password'
    From a desktop or mobile web browser:

    Sign in to the Yahoo Account security page.
    Click Change password.
    Enter a new password.
    Click Continue.

    It would be nice to provide a phone number as well. I use the Two Step Sign In Process, only I AM NOT LOCKED OUT OF MY ACCOUNT.

  17. I have an old email account with you that hasn't been active for some time and you make it impossible to open old email so I can delete it

    I am a 61 year old disabled senior citizen. My experience with Yahoo retrieving a password Has been so messed up that you all need to make this an easier process. Why do you all have to make this such a terrible experience. It cant be that hard. Google does not do this
