Yahoo! Mail app for Windows 8 features an easy-to-use interface and includes all options that you would expect from a decent email app. Using the app, one can send and receive messages, share photos, videos, & documents, search emails, scan messages in your inbox with continues scroll, and more.

The current version lacks multiple account support, options to adjust the font size, and adjust columns. Yahoo! will certainly introduce these missing features and options in the next release.

By default Yahoo! Mail adds “Sent from Yahoo! Mail for Windows 8” text as your mail signature. To change it or turn off signature, after signing-in, move the mouse cursor to the upper or lower right corner of the screen to open Charms bar, click Settings and then click General.

    Today yahoo said I must change my password for no good reason. I changed it and now they won’t allow me to sign in with the new password which they approved via text and email to my android. fuck yahoo!!!

    I just bought a Windows 8 computer and I’m not happy with the Yahoo app.
    I cannot print emails, when I click on the print tab it tells me it cant print from an app.
    I’ve tried to go to a browser and open the email and print (as was suggested above) and still cant print.
    This is really stupid, makes me want to change to some other email option. Yahoo needs to fix this NOW.

    I installed the free app and got over 200 spam mails in 5 minutes. Some don’t let me trash or spam

    To print in Yahoo Mail Windows 8 App you have to hit ctrl p, that’s the only way I have found that works. You would think the would put an icon in the tray for it??? lol

    yahoo does not start on my win8 table. I get “an unknown error occurred. please check your internet connection and try again” message, however I’m connected and accessing other web apps / sites.

    This is probably quite simple, but I’m less than a week new to windows 8. I’ve installed the Yahoo app, but can’t for the life of me figure out how to print an email. I ended up opening yahoo in a browser and printing from there. I’m hoping I don’t need to do that every time I need to print. Is there a print feature I’m missing somewhere?

    There is no such thing as a “General” tab under settings. You have to go into “Accounts” and select your account. Then the signature can be modified or turned off. Yahoo! help files skip the step of choosing the “Accounts” and the selecting the desired account. Who wrote these help files for them, anyway?

    I need help! My account has been inaccessible for over 2 weeks.
    Furthermore, My security answer is not accepted and there is no other answer!
    I bought a new computer, several months ago (windows 8) and was accessing my yahoo mail just fine. Then, this problem, all of a sudden???
    I cannot access my mail on my phone either!
    I get a message saying- go to a computer and resolve the issue.
    Trying to resolve the issue only locks my account as, it does not accept my answer to the security question!
    I hoped to download this app and possibly resolve the issue but, I need to know if it will actually be resolved, by doing so?

    Where is the logout in Yahoo Mail App for Windows 8? It seems you can not logout. Why? I do not like This. This is a huge problem.
