Good afternoon davidcartwright01,

 

It's great to speak to one of our Yahoo! mail users and hopefully we can help get to the bottom of this :smileyhappy:

 

Can you please clarify what you mean by pop-ups? If you are referring to the adverts that appear at the side of your Sky Email account then these are supposed to be there and we cannot remove them.

 

If it is an actual pop-up message constantly appearing, this is a separate issue from your Sky Email account which you would need to get to the bottom of.

 

If you can please reply to my post to let me know.

 

Thanks

Why do we have to put up these hughe ads everytime we want to use email.  It is most annoying. We get enough unwanted literature through the post and ads on tv without all this junk in front of us.

Hey @Gill+Kirkland,

 

Where have you been? We haven't seen you in almost a year! 

 

As per @Fraser-H post above, can you please clarify what kind of pop-ups do you mean? Are you referring to the adverts that appear at the side of your Sky Email account a pop-up message constantly appearing.

 

We really want to get to the bottom of this so I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Regards,

I have the ad setting switched to off and yet still get annoying ads showing especially when my inbox is empty, such a poor mail service now from the excellent GMail one we came from

You could install an ad blocker.

Oh yes you can stop the bloody Yahpoo adverts! All you need to do is install a pop-up blocker. I use Firefox and there is one on their site with easy instructions and it works a treat. They are also available for Internet Explorer.

However this will not get round the fact that SKY Yahpoo really is a load of poo and the level of support is something scraped from the bottom of the excrement barrel. The easy way out is to sign up for GMail - it's easy and it works first time and synchronises with mobiles.

Am I an unhappy customer? Dammn right I am!
