Yahoo Email is not working

I cannot send an Email and every time I try to switch from inbox to span to trash, et al, the page freezes. Worst of all, there is no one to contact. Why the *** can't Yahoo simply invest a few bucks in a phone? We've made Yahoo millions upon millions of dollars . . . and they can't spend a few bucks a month on a cheap VOIP? Are you kidding me? I'm going to drop the whole Yahoo thing . . . it just isn't worth the hassle! I'm being told that I have to enter at least 100 words or my message won't be worthy of anyone's attention . . . this is 108 . . . good enough?

Can't copy and paste into email, also no cursor

I hit Compose, copied a paragraph from a document I'd previously written, and tried to paste it into the body of the email. No "paste" function appeared, only "select" and "attach". This happened suddenly and stayed that way. I tried several times. I also noticed that there was no visible cursor, so I couldn't tell where the cursor was. Furthermore, the arrow keys also didn't work, and neither did clicking on a new location, so there was literally no way to move the cursor to make corrections except by laboriously deleting everything back to where I wanted to make the correction. What good is an email program if you can't use basic word processing functions to write efficiently and correct your work? These functions all work otherwise, both online and offline, just not in Yahoo email.

Yahoo mail

They keep adding " features" that nobody needs, without option to disable them. The once good email service became a mess in the last two years. There is no real user support. It is flooded by really annoying adds. Often not working at all... The main feature that in my oppinion still gives Yahoo an advantage over other free webmail services is the Tabs feature. When this is gone, or other service implemented it - then many users will be gone as well. Instead of trying to implement new *** features, Yahoo should try to keep those that brought the users in the first place.

Yahoo Mail Review

I get up to 4 spam emails a day FROM yahoo. Each one has a different user name. I don't wanna to block all yahoo emailed and I can't block what name is coming next. Yahoo said they fixed it and cut off communication. I don't know what they think they fixed but the spam keeps on coming every day. Yahoo doesn't want to hear it.

Logging and verification password

My email address is omeds2014@***.com with the password Family12, i mistakenly choose to be sent a verification code to my mobile number 0818281****. initially i do not like the idea and i have been writing to remove my mail from such rigorous process still yahoo failed to take notice of that complaint. Now, my mobile phone number has lost including the SIM CARD and i cannot access my mail again. That is appalling. Please do anything you can to restore it. You can email me via this mail, omeds2015@***.com If this thing continues like this yahoo might lose many customers. Thanks.

Advertisements

Yahoo has so many adds that they look like a cheap *** with *** me written on their back. It is one thing to sell advertisement space to gain revenue. It is another thing altogether different to plug any cheap *** add into any inconvenient spot it may fit on your web page. The worst is dating site adds that eat up nearly 1/4 of your email page and show women dressed in a way that makes everybody that see's it think you are looking at ***. Has no body with your companies sales department ever had sales experience or training? Your adds cheapen your pages and and make you look like a cheap *** inexperienced company ran by children with no experience sales or marketing that think they run the world when in fact they just look foolish. Granted some of them may make a lot of money off the cheap sales adds but, keep in mind people do tire of these things and will leave your services just like I have left similar and bigger in the past.

Disgusted Ex Yahoo User

In response to many racially negative comments to yahoo news stories . I found out that one of the commenters worked for Yahoo. This individual had made many negative comments throughout the coverage of the Baltimore Freddie Gray incident. I had noticed them through out the two week coverage. First I was taken aback that Yahoo did not have guidelines that would eventually remove the remarks. I then saw that several other readers felt the same way, that the stories were somehow presented in a jaded light and not the whole truth was told i.e. the headline was very misleading. I lived in the DC area for 18 years, I lived and worked on Capitol Hill and I knew for a fact that a lot of the reports were inaccurate. me and 70 other commenters at the time agreed to a nice lady named Carolyn's comment that Yahoo was biased and bigoted and that we would not support them anymore. As soon as I gave her a thumbs up the same haggler commented " Yahoo only reposts news that were in the AP. " So now very conveniently they are not taking full responsibility for the article. This was the same individual who wrote all of those terrible racial comments. I then replied do you work for Yahoo, the individual said yes. I was appalled especially since this person worked for yahoo and they were putting out these articles and they were indeed spreading inaccuracies. That is not the worst part. After the person said yes and called me a derogatory name, I said that I would no longer support Yahoo, close my email account down and get news from a more credible source. I then did just that. I got many pop up messages from Yahoo as far as how were they doing. One was for an investigation in Spanish which I speak by the way. All after I had signed out and put a forwarding message on my email to reach me on my other email address. I then got an email saying that I would not be able to send or receive emails. So after 13 years I coincidentally get that email? It looks like this person or persons at yahoo are deliberately doing this and it is a concern to me because I might have had some personal stuff in my email which is obviously not secure. I am sure many consumer laws have been broken. I am taking this all the way. unfortunately for the individual I deal directly with such things.

CLICK AND NOTHING HAPPENS, OVER AND OVER!!!

Each time I turn computer on and click on yahoo to check email it takes an average of 2-3 minutes just to come on. I am so sick of Yahoo I will have to change from AT&T to get away from it. Yahoo is the worst email service I have ever seen...the worst. I waste so much time trying to keep it from freezing up...clicking it off and then back and then it just cuts off again. AT&T needs to step up and handle this mess they bought. JUST FIX IT! It is a total waste of time to have this email service. IT DOES NOT WORK...FIX IT!

Yahoo finance will be right back!

When I go to yahoo finance I get the message Yahoo finance will be right back, our engineers are working to resolve this issue. What a bunch of BS, I can get it on my smart phone just fine. They might be blocking me for turning off the multitude off adds that constantly appear, when changing from a chart view back to the home page, No more yahoo finance for me!!!! I HAVE REACHED MY ELASTIC LIMIT!!!!! They should rename it Yahoo streaming adds and annoyance site. More attention is given to advertising than correct stock quotes and accurate stock charts.

Change of email in box to green

I opened my email account with yahoo this morning to find it had been changed to a very difficult to see shade of green, also I am receiving adds I do not want, as an older user consider using a format that is easy to see, what are the reason for the changes? why change without consulting the user? how do I change my account from yahoo to a more user friendly site? I would be interested to hear if there had been any more complaints about this my email address is ravel@***.com. I do hope I get a reply to this complaint.

You should check for possible virus in your computer, since this is probably nothing to do with Yahoo. There are lots of problems going around now.

Too many power hungry programs (ads)

I understand the need for ads to generate revenue....I get it. But when every page loads dozens of ads that aren't just a bill boards but their own programs running what "I want to see", I simply don't have the patience. When I read a story that flips between 10 photos and I have to wait 60 seconds at every click of the mouse for the background garbage to finish loading before I can scroll down and read a single paragraph.....I'm all done! You want to run a video ad when I click a news story; better be 10 seconds. If it's 30.....delete. I've got better *** to do. .....and why do you keep promoting ads that are scams? What about my web surfing indicates I want to see "the one thing power companies don't want me to know."?

Their system crashing sucks

We've been dealing with their system going down on Friday's. Like right now, this Friday 4/17/15. Trying to attach a document, it won't attached it errors out. We can't even reply to a email. The system is locked or frozen and you can't do anything. It's not just happening on Friday's, but other days during the week. Now it happening more often andthat's frustrating. My coworker tried logging out, now he can't even log back in. It's Friday, one of the busiest days of the week where we're trying to contact and complete all business with our customers, and having to deal with system failures is just frustrating. The frequency of these crashes is unexceptable. Moving to GOOGLE!!!

YAHOO STINKS

The way Yahoo breaches it's own privacy laws to post unsolicited ads in my email has been *** me off for months. And now, when I log in to check mail, the losers direct me to their home page first. Are they so desperate that they need to resort to the above tactics? Yahoo is operated by the same bunch of dumb *** that produce that pathetic morning news show (Sunrise) as it has the same kind of concepts, news and people. Reminds one of opening one of those 3rd rate rags which focuses on big ***, celebrities and voyeruistic news pitches. It is very, very pathetic. Alyce G

I can barely use Yahoo. I try to type an answer in Yahoo Answers and it won't allow me to type because of the video at the side.

Can't even get rid of it so I can use my computer. It doesn't work with IE anymore. Had to switch to Edge and it stinks in that browser also but better than in IE. Too bad.

I used it for 10 years and liked it mostly. Now it just plain stinks.
