Editing[edit]

Howdy! I will be working on this article. I anticipate:

  • editing and revising sentences to make them clearer, such as in the 'History' section
  • correcting some citation and hyperlink formatting/placement
  • making small grammatical changes.
  • finding content to accompany the bullet points in the 'Features Section (Free Version)'

I plan on keeping a list of potential edits on my personal page in case anyone is curious about specific changes. Once I have a comprehensive list, I plan on publishing it on this talk page. Thanks, Txmormon97 (talk) 21:35, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Adding and Moving Sections[edit]

In the features section, there seems to be more than two configurations of e-mail plans (free and business) that are stated. There are seemingly four: Free plan, Plus plan, Ad Free plan, and Business Plan. For example for the "Plus Plan" we can literally take the section in "History" that details the Plus Plan and move it into a "Plus Plan" section of "Features"
I feel like the POP3 section should be somewhere other than features. However, that being said, I do recognize that POP3 is a 'feature' of Yahoo!. It just doesn't seem to fit where it is right now. There is also a lot of information about POP later that does not seem to reflect in the 'POP3 section.'
I feel like the History section can become more clear by breaking it apart into smaller sections like it was done later (e.i. 2011 release, 2013 release, 2015 release). Perhaps new sections can be called Acquisition and 1997 release; 2002 Updates; and Competition and 2004 Updates. What do ya'll think?
Txmormon97 (talk) 21:37, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Major changes are needed in the description of the configurations. There is no longer a Plus version. There is a Basic and Full Featured version. There is also a Beta test of a new version. It now refers to the Full Featured version as Classic. A complete rewrite is needed.
In addition to the versions Yahoo has switched to IMAP for security reasons. More detail is needed about that. Denmarks (talk) 17:51, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

General Queries[edit]

Should it be written 'Yahoo' or 'Yahoo!'? It changes throughout the article.
I do not understand the following sentence from the article: "From 2007, Yahoo! provided major New Zealand Telecom's email service, which came under criticism in early 2013 following a spam and phishing attack that was described as the biggest to have ever hit the country." (Controversy: Phising Attack: First ¶) Does 'major' need to be replaced with 'majority'? Txmormon97 (talk) 21:37, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Older Emails Disappearing Controversy[edit]

I've heard that Yahoo Mail loses or drops older email messages. It looks like it happened to me. I'd like to know more about this, why it happens, and what Yahoo's response was. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.95.174.225 (talk) 23:02, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
