Like you, we often find ourselves checking email throughout the day while we’re on the go. If you’re using the new Yahoo! Mail app for iOS, here are a few tips to make it even easier for you to send and organize messages in Yahoo! Mail for iPhone.
Make sure you’ve got the latest version
We’ve issued a couple of updates to our iPhone app since December, so make sure you’re running the latest version of the app that’s available in the App Store.
Quickly delete a group of messages
We know that email can get unwieldy, so we give you several ways to keep it organized. To quickly delete a group of messages, tap the checkbox to the left of each message to select it and reveal a trash icon within the toolbar at the bottom of your screen. From there, you can delete messages individually, select all and delete, move messages to your personal folders, mark as spam, or change the status to read or unread.
Sometimes even legitimate emails can set off alerts that mark them as spam. To get those back, open the spam folder and tap the checkbox to the left of each message you want to keep. Select the Not Spam icon shown within the toolbar at the bottom of your screen.
Disable push notifications
Don’t need notifications for your Yahoo! Mail app? Turn off push notifications in your device’s Settings. While in Settings, go to the Notifications screen and tap on Yahoo! Mail. Here, you can change the Alert Style to “none.” You can also change the settings for sounds or the badge app icon.
If you’re facing intermittent issues, such as crashing, freezing, issues loading mail, etc., try resetting the app. To reset the app, sign in and go to the sidebar (the icon on the top left), then select Settings and Reset App.
If you have other questions or feedback, you can reach the Yahoo! Mail for iPhone team directly at email@example.com.
Thanks for using Yahoo! Mail for iPhone– we look forward to bringing you more tips and features soon!
