Yahoo Email

I wanted to share with the ATT community in the hopes that ATT can put pressure on Yahoo to fix their email format. 

 

Several months ago, they changed their email system and it is a mess.  I can no longer tell what emails have been replied to or the status as they combine all emails with same subject into 1.  And if I want to reply to 1 of the emails in the conversation thread, it ties ALL of them together so that I don't honestly know what is being sent.  

 

Additionally it is almost impossible to find attachments or figure out what you've read and haven't read.

 

Yahoo is so horrible now that I have been a customer of ATT email since the beginning of internet, and I am now going to research other options and give up my email address to get away from Yahoo.


If you have similar issues, please also post so that ATT understands how much of an issue this is.

Re: Yahoo Email

I agree, it is horrible. I didn't like it when they made the change and like it even less now. Almost impossible to find a specific email because it can be lumped in with a dozen others that are a part of the same conversation. Would help if new emails showed up on the date they were sent, rather than the date of the original email that started the conversation.

Re: Yahoo Email

@ddroll  - Did you try the steps suggested by @lem3 ?  Seems to be working for others if you haven't given it a try.

Re: Yahoo Email

Thanks to both of you.  Yes that worked.  

 

Amazing that I had to go to AT&T forums to get the answer when there are hundreds and thousands of posts on Yahoo, but it doesn't seem like anyone is paying attention or has taken the time to post this.  

 

Also, Yahoo is apparently acting like Facebook now.  Doing new things and changing your settings without giving you clear direction on what you need to do or how to use it.

 

Thanks again!!!  Very much appreciated.

Re: Yahoo Email

the new screen format with the side bar ads, leaves inadequate width for the entire email message to be seen. any ideas how to remove the right side ad or reduce widths of folders and emails columns.? thanks.

Re: Yahoo Email

Actually, I know the answer to that (or maybe part of the answer).  

 

You can temporarily eliminate the side bar ads but positioning your mouse about 1/2 down the ad on the LH side of it looking for the arrow pointing to the right.  Click on that arrow and it eliminates the ad and increases your email box.  

 

Unfortunately this isn't a permanent fix.  As soon as you go to another email, I believe, the ad comes back so you have to do it again.  For sure when you exit and come back in, you have to do it again.

If you're using Google Chrome web browser, use an ad blocker extension.

Re: Yahoo Email

I sooooo agree with you, Ddroll. Not only is Yahoo email making arbitrary changes to functionality and formatting, but they have become so spammy that I feel pushed into changing internet service providers. Ugh!!!

Re: Yahoo Email

$17.95 a month?  For just email access?

 

Most domain registrars will sell you your very own internet domain name along with ad-free email service for $12-$15 a year.  And you don't have to continue relying on the overloaded Yahoo mail servers.

 

Alternatively, you could use AdBlock Plus.

Re: Yahoo Email

You're saying the issue is solved? Really? Yahoo is the worst email provider around. It is spam riddled and non-responsive to issues and problems. I know how to mark spam but it continues to come to my iinbox. I even get copies of what's clearly spam in the spam folder as well as in my inbox. It's ridiculous. No other provider I've ever used has this kind of problem with spam or as much spam allowed through at all as Yahoo does. I don't pay Yahoo, but I do pay ATT / Bellsouth and I expect a decent email provider since you chose long ago to stop providing that service yourself... whatever you're paying Yahoo is too much. Please get us a decent email service... we pay for it!
