No, Google does not recycle email addresses. Google...has confirmed to Webwereld that it does not recycle unused accounts. Users can delete their accounts, but this "won't free up your username.

I just managed to do this in a very round-about way on a fluke. Was so happy to have discovered it. Here's what I did: Go to inbox Click on "Unread" in left hand column At the top, you will now see the number of unread emails and an option to "refine" your search. Click on "refine" A box will pop up..here, you will change the search option that says "unread"...

On the far right edge of the inbox folder heading there is an arrow you can click on and select "mark as read" from the options ("mark as read" or "clean inbox"). Doing this actually marks all emails in inbox and all sub-folders of inbox at once, not page by page if you use CTRL+K or other mark as read options

Yahoo is not trying to charge you $100 to recover your account. That's a scammer, possibly the person(s) who hacked your account in the first place. To recover your Yahoo account, click the link at the Yahoo login page that says "Can't access your account?". Then follow the instructions.

No. Apple have absolutely no clue what your email password is. It has nothing to do with iCloud, or your Mac. You are simply using that email as your AppleID. An AppleID doesn't even actually have to be an email address at all, so long as there is a real email address associated with the ID, so you can be contacted/use 2FA etc.

I have been trying to change it too. It seems that you can't. The UI confused me and I ended up having a really stupid basename. See this link for more info. Important - Once you create a base name, it's locked into your account and cannot be edited or removed. If you'd like a different base name, you can create a new Yahoo Mail account and add 1 base ...

Kilrplatypus' solution is almost perfect. However, it has the sub-subdomain names in the rules (us-mg5) which is not constant. The more general filter rules are: mail.yahoo.com###uh-dmos-msgbox mail.yahoo.com##.uh-dmos-msgbox mail.yahoo.com###uh-dmos-overlay mail.yahoo.com##.uh-dmos-overlay mail.yahoo.com###uh-dmos-wrapper BTW, I just used it on a ...

For a single phrase, you should wrap it in double quotation marks. "6 new updates and 2 invitations waiting for you on" If you have multiple exact phrases to test, use double quotes for each phrase, inserting a space between phrases to separate them (as opposed to a comma). "e-statement Notification Account Statement on" "08" 2009

From my comment I don't know how Yahoo Email works but the preview text is very likely that comes from the email itself. The original email message could include several parts in order to make a message readable in text only email clients, to look fine in email clients that supports HTML and so on. It's very likely that the preview comes from the ...

If you are concerned then be sure to change your password as the first step. There isn't much readily available information to find out what you want to know. However, log into your Yahoo! account and go to your "Account Information" page from the top right (below your name). You should be asked for your password again. When the page opens, click on the ...

In your example text you use a typographic apostrophe, the one with a bit of a curve. ’ You should be using a typewriter apostrophe which is a bit more straight looking. ' As you noticed with the Content-Transfer-Encoding value, this happens when a special character that cannot be encoded using 7-bit encoding is used and therefore enforces quoted-...

I would fully expect that you cannot. That would be terrible security. The whole point of the security questions is to help you in case you forget your password. Remember: Yahoo has no idea who you are until you login in. Could you imagine just anyone being able to say to Yahoo: "I am Inusah. No, really, trust me. I don't remember my password or the ...

These settings are stored server-side, so it’s probably just a glitch/bug. Try setting the theme from a different browser/computer.

If you can setup an email client (e.g., Thunderbird or MS Outlook) that accesses your Yahoo mailbox via the IMAP protocol, you can setup subfolders on that email client. The subfolders will show up in the Yahoo web mail interface. As far as I can tell, the subfolders work as expected in the Yahoo mail interface, except you can't delete them there (it give ...

I don't know if this is a bug or what, but I tested and it worked like this: When an email is in trash, it appears as crossed in search results. When you empty the trash a deleted message shouldn't be in search results anymore but it still appears there. But if you try to search again (I mean if you search twice after emptying the trash) deleted emails won'...

The "More" menu shows that sometimes when you're looking at a list of email. There's a bug in Yahoo Mail whether it shows that menu or the fuller one, when viewing a list of email. I find that if I click the first email then click inbox to see the list of email. Then it shows the limited menu you show there. But if I click any other email then click inbox, ...
