Help Community


We’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue the Yahoo Communities effective Jan 24, 2019.

Be assured you will still be able to find answers to your Yahoo product and app questions on the Yahoo Help website ( In addition, you’ll be able to find the Yahoo Community moderators on Twitter, responding from our many handles including @YahooCare and @YahooFantasyCC.

If you ever need help with your Yahoo accounts, try Yahoo Account Pro for 24/7 live phone support.

Congratulations on 1 year in the Yahoo Help Community, Barkley_Hound!

We recently talked to Barkley_Hound about his Yahoo experience.


  1. How long have you been a Yahoo customer?


Yahoo since 1997


Yahoo Answers since 2006



  1. What brings you back to help here in the community?


The challenge of trying to solve problems



  1. What is your favorite Yahoo Mail feature?


I hate to say this but I only use Yahoo mail for junk. I have my own domain email with 1and1 and use Thunderbird.



  1. Do you frequent any other Yahoo sites?


I used to frequent Yahoo Answers and have over a million points. It is too much work answering here and there.



  1. One fun fact about yourself?


My avatar of a cat with a captain's hat (I like ocean cruises) and the name Barkley Hound (which sounds like a dog) were chosen as a joke a few months after joining Yahoo Answers. I now use it for most forums. Note: I owned the cat for a while but had to give it up due to allergies.
