I agree! I send a link to a friend, and Yahoo replaces the link with a little picture, of the page, THAT I DIDN'T WANT! Plus there seems to be NO WAY to TURN IT OFF!
The setting for Notifications doesn't work either! I still get "Breaking News" and "Trending on Yahoo" when the Notifications setting is set to OFF!
Maybe this Yahoo webpage will help, but they might just ignore it as well!
Try the add-on "Print Edit" downloaded from Firefox/Mozilla. Maybe it will help.
I started a similar thread, but Yahoo deleted it.
I have the "desktop Notifications" TURNED OFF, Yet I still get "Breaking News" notifications and "Trending on Yahoo" notifications.
MAKE THE SETTINGS WORK PROPERLY!!!!! Dec 06,2019
I also get UNWANTED pop-ups "Trending on Yahoo" that come up DESPITE THE NOTIFICATIONS SETTINGS BEING TURNED TO OFF!
Your not alone with this problem.
Thank you for contacting Yahoo.
After looking into this, we've determined that the email in question didn't originate from the Yahoo Mail system. Some senders will forge the header information in order to make it look like a message came from our mail servers.
Assume that any unsolicited message asking for your login info or other sensitive data is part of a scam to gain unauthorized access to your account. You should just delete these messages. Going forward, you can learn to tell whether or not an email came from Yahoo
If you've already entered your information into a suspicious message or webpage:
Secure the account immediately .
Use the Sign-in Helper if you're unable to access the account.
Contact your financial institution if you provided credit card or other financial details.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.

WHICH COMPLAINT WAS THIS??
Was it the complaint, sent from firstname.lastname@example.org that was USING THE YAHOO ADDRESS email@example.com FOR REPLIES?
If so, does it mean that Yahoo doesn't CARE that it's accounts are used by fraudsters to COLLECT REPLIES, and only objects if the accounts are used to SEND SPAM?

*********** my response**********
what do you mean by closing a case "that you have not received a reply within 5 days"???
I replied to your only message within 12 hours of receiving it!!
This is NOT "CUSTOMER CARE"!
Totally AGREE! This is "CUSTOMER FRUSTRATION" not "Customer Service"
I submitted an Abuse Complaint against a Yahoo account Phishing for MY account information.
I used "Yahoo help, submit a form" the form has blocks for the account I am reporting, full headers, message text and a description of the complaint.
Yahoo's reply included "For any Abuse related concerns, please reply to this email directly and we'll investigate your report further. "
Why should I have to reply? In the web page form, I entered that the account in question was phishing for log-in credentials (it turned out to be a malware link!)
I replied including Full header and message text (as sent) information and received another request.
"The email you have received does not seem to be from Yahoo, in the following link you will find how to identify the official communications of Yahoo."
"Before I can help you out, I just need a few more details about the issue.
Please reply to this email with:
The full internet headers of the original message, including the email message content."
I supplied the full message headers, and text that Yahoo will display as "view raw message" on the original form, and can read them in the text of Yahoo's second reply, which included the text of my first reply WITH the headers and message text!
When the message header contains " (domain of yahoo.com designates 126.96.36.199 as permitted sender)" WHY would "customer Care" think it was Not sent from a Yahoo account??
Why bother requesting information on a form, if they IGNORE EVERYTHING except who submitted the form???
I asked them if anyone there could READ and Understand English.
9/15/19 I had to go through FOUR sets before you finally accepted my SPAM from Yahoo complaint!
Two sets of traffic lights, bus, crosswalks.
Was that changed picture a bus or the front of a motor home???
Re Herbert Morris comments.
Apparently the domains I blocked, BEFORE I was forced to change to the new yahoo, are still in force. I blocked about a hundred domains managed by OVH.net (France) because they took my spam complaints as an invitation to send even more spam in French, Which I don't read!
Try "more Settings", 'Security and Privacy" it will accept *@domain. Whether it blocks the entire domain or not I have yet to verify. It seems to, because I have had no repeats (except spam from Gmail, AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo Yahoo etc, from which I can't realistically block the domains.
I have nearly 700 domains on that list.
I also periodically have Wanted emails MISTAKENLY classified as SPAM!
Try using a browser with a "Webmail Ad Blocker". I do. NO right side advertisements and NO advertisements above the first message either.
Probably a Phishing email. I received one on June 25, which I reported to Yahoo.
click on the three dots (. . .) next to the spam icon and choose "view raw message". If the line starting "Received-SPF:" (about the 7th line down does NOT say "the domain of yahoo.com designates ***.***.***.*** (numbers) as permitted sender" then the sender is FORGED.
Also look at the line "message ID" which should also include "@yahoo.com" .
There also should be NO attachments.
BUT THAT DOES NOT STOP A PERSON WITH A YAHOO ACCOUNT FROM IMPERSONATING A YAHOO CUSTOMER CARE REPRESENTATIVE,
July 21, 2019.
Another SPAM from Yahoo.
This time I had to jump through SIX reCAPTHCHA's before you accepted my complaint!
Vehicles, Traffic Lights, Vehicles, with bicycles also shown (again), Traffic Lights (again) then Vehicles TWICE MORE. All a single large picture
The frustration continues. July 15, 2019, I reported a Fake Lottery that was using a yahoo account for Replies, (sent from gmail) recaptcha made me go through THREE different screens before it conceded I was not a robot, and accepted my submission.
Find the vehicles in a single, large picture; then find the traffic lights in a single large picture; finally find the bicycles in multiple small pictures that were replaced when checked.
Yes, they are idiots, or at least the Artificial Idiocy program that reviews the transmissions.
A few years ago, I was tagged as a Spammer, because I was forwarding too many SPAMs to ABUSE REPORTING ADDRESSES for the sending ISP, and government (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
(Most ISP's want you to FORWARD SPAM to them for abuse reporting complaints, with the original subject line intact)!
They Do have a page to report such issues with Yahoo, but it would be nice IF IT WORKED!
I TRIED to report a Yahoo account impersonating Yahoo Admin, only to get:
"Sorry, there was an error on our end. Please try again later."
WHY CAN'T I POST A COMMENT WHEN I HAVE ANOTHER WINDOW OPEN TO YAHOO MAIL?????
Email a specialist
June 04, 2019 - The option to "block sender" when viewing a SPAM message is back.
In the "More Settings" menu under "Security & Privacy" the "blocked Senders" are displayed, and there is an option to add senders to the "blocked" list.
comstar.ru returns "the email address is Invalid"
@comstar.ru returns "the email address is Invalid"
*@comstar.ru is accepted. but does it work to block the whole domain?
Note this is the domain from a spammer!
Why can't I have my Yahoo mail open in another tab and THAT be my sign in??
Correction- Yahoo has removed the menu option to "block sender" when viewing a SPAM message.
In the "More Settings" menu under "Security & Privacy" the "blocked Senders" are still displayed, and there is still an option to add senders to the "blocked" list.
June 03, 2019 - Yahoo has REMOVED ANY option to BLOCK SPAM senders!
I had several HUNDRED French domains BLOCKED that wanted to send SPAM in French,which I DON'T READ! Plus the ISP's took my SPAM complaints as Invitations to send even MORE SPAM that I COULDN'T READ! It was either BLOCK the domains or see yahoo's SPAM folder overflow!
Yahoo closed out comments on "Allow user to set high priority when sending important emails" TOO SOON.
Today, May 29, 2019, I received a FAKE 'closing your Yahoo account in 72 hours' Phishing SPAM!
I reported it to Yahoo as it WAS SENT from a Yahoo account!
"domain of yahoo.com designates 66.***.***.*** as permitted sender"
I wanted to Heighten the priority of the Phishing Report I sent to the bit.ly abuse address as it linked toone of their web pages!
