Hi,

 

I recently upgraded to Windows 11. I noticed Mail app doesn't show my yahoo emails here. I also have another laptop which still operates on Windows 10 and the Mail app performs fine there.

 

I did try to repair the app, and also deleted and added my Yahoo account on Mail app, but still I don't see Yahoo emails in the Mail app. 

 

It still works fine for my other email accounts (Gmail, Outlook) but Yahoo is showing issues.

 

Please let me know if you have ways to fix this issue.

 

Best,

Amir

Same problem here.

the same to me ... it works fine with Gmail, Outlook, but not with Yahoo and Bluewin

I gave up. I installed Mailbird instead. It works perfectly. Ugh.

@BowtieII I don't know why Microsoft didn't reply back to this issue... Anyways I'm going to keep this issue open until Microsoft reaches back.

@alashkari This is a problem on Yahoo's end. Yahoo is trying to make us view email on their webmail page so we're forced to see the ads they serve up. Why they are making it difficult for Microsoft and not other 3rd mail apps is a mystery. Maybe because of MS's deep pockets? MS has been making efforts for it to work, but each time yahoo seems to try something different... I dunno.

 

I just clean installed Win 11 on my Surface Book 2, and windows mail is completely useless for Yahoo right now. It downloaded old emails, but will NOT sync for new emails. Same with other folders such as Sent Items. I sent an email using Yahoo Webmail, and the Sent Items folder on windows will not sync to show the sent item. This is beyond frustrating, and it's getting worse! Yahoo used to be king, until Google came along and smothered them. Now they are an also ran...
