Well, the new emojis (as little as I use them) seem now to be poor imitations of iPhone emojis. Previously, the emojis had some character (little cowboy pushing up his hat, pom-pom rah-rah, hugging arms, angel with flapping wings, and so on). They were all of cute, and it would be nice to have them back. Sure, a bit infantile, but there yo go.
More annoying is the fact that someone doesn't know the difference between STATIONARY and STATIONERY, and nobody caught it? Send that person and the editors back to school.
Still very unhappy that the filter function that worked so well now does not since they removed the option from the ... on the top of the Inbox. Sigh. Be quicker though tedious to just move the emails to the subfolders.
Luckily most of my filters are still holding but I noticed emails that should have been directred to a sub folder are going into the main Inbox and I have not got a clue how to fix that.
I absolutely despise the "new look" and the continuous insertion of advertisements.
When I click on an email I want it displayed but rather than doing so it goes into a search for all these topics and shows them and I cannot find where to turn this "feature" off.
It really needs further optimization in the UI as it is between a usable webapp and squirrelmail.
Why is this not a progressive web app?
What works well is the calendar function, I am grateful for that.
Contacts is still a hodgepodge - to be truthful I am afraid of ever importing those 600 "contacts"
Kijiji.ca email still goes into junkmail with all rules turned off. Only half or less of the messages come through to the inbox, I guess that is why they are MESSages.... in the AI opinion....
Overall, the improvements are there I can see it but I do not have to like it. Unfortunately on a Chromebook we have little other options than to go to the web site to read and reply to email. I also realize this is Yahoo doing this and I still question why Rogers stuck with this company after the massive breach and millions of email addresses were stolen.
So I decided to try and reorganize my email filters using this new system and I really cannot beleive how bad it is now, they don't organize the files in the same order as I have them on my email, many of my old filters are not working - what do I have to do to get a better email program compatible with Rogers that works like the old Yahoo even if I have to pay more which I am sure is the point of downgrading Rogers Yahoo. Upgrade? I don't think so.
Any recommendations from other Rogers users fed up with the new Yahoo email?
Received an email claiming to be from Rogers regarding a change to the Classic version of Rogers Yahoo Mail , Asking me to login to upgrade. Can I assume this is a phishing email?
I would guess it is phishing email - I always check the email that I think it suspicious two ways, sometimes all you have to do is look at the actual sender's email address at top without having to click anything - some of these scammers don't even bother to try and make their email address look like rogers yahoo or whatever site they are trying to con you with, and often English/grammar is bad LOL .....and/or click on ... and go to view raw message and check the origin of the email - usually if it is a kosher email it says for example rogers.com is a permitted sender.
My general rule however is not to use an email link to log into anything. I go to the original site.
There have been changes at Rogers/Yahoo e-mail. You can go to your Webmail, login and see "switch to the newest Rogers Yahoo Mail" at the top right. You can decide if you wish to switch to the new interface or not.
As mentioned above, don't use any hyperlinks in e-mails, just to go the appropriate website yourself as you have been doing.
hmm. I went back through my records and here's the "real" e-mail from Rogers dated October 18, 2018 (note, 2018)
"Your inbox is getting a refresh.
In the next few weeks, Yahoo is launching a new and improved version of webmail. The enhancements include:
