Yahoo is (furtively) directing e-mails from a club I belong to into Spam close to 50% of the time, something I didn't realize for a while. Now I check the Spam folder if something I expect didn't show up. It's like searching for the needle in the haystack.
Anyway, I finally SAW what happens at least some of the time. I had just signed into my Yahoo mail, where there were some unwanted e-mails, along with two desired ones, both of those from the club. As I checked the unwanteds and sent them to Trash, one of the "good" e-mails mysteriously vanished. At the same time, one of those new Yahoo spam-mails that you cannot manually delete materialized, on top of the page as always. (These un-deletable spams have NO checkbox on their left.)
At first I thought, "Oh, the checked boxes moved down when the new undeletable mail arrived, so the good one got sent to Trash based on its position." NOPE! The good one got sent to Spam, and waaaaay down the page of spams, not at the top as you might expect. I definitely did not send anything to Spam; this was something Yahoo designed in, it appears. Extremely sneaky.
If you have had difficulties with "missing" messages, check that Yahoo didn't send them to Spam. This has been happening a LOT of times in the last half-year or so.

I check email carefully but my latest problem with yahoo mail was being down for THREE DAYS. No explanation. When attempting to log in it said it was down for "scheduled maintenance." BS!

Have you considered...|

...that this may just be a bug? That seems more likely to me.
I've had little trouble with yahoo mail |

itself, but when we switched browsers to Chrome to get away from ass-ociated yahoo ads, we found that gmail on Chrome had some irritations compared to yahoo mail.
It's probably time to leave Yahoo|

They keep changing the interface, and it gets worse and worse. I've used it for years a a webmail server for traveling, but I've had a lot of strange spam and fishing issues and it no longer works on older versions of browsers that I have on ancient computers I use for recording music.
Yahoo = spam|

No email service is without issues, but the one that tops all the others for my getting bad looking email is from people I know who use Yahoo. Getting an email service with web client (that usually works more reliably than the local client) is not hard, they all do, so would work for traveling.
Worse but in a different way|

I don't get more spam than I used to, in my normal Inbox. What's been happening is that non-spam e-mails are being sent to Spam, even when others from the same sender make it to the Inbox.

That's why I ONLY use it for internet transactions/interactions.
