Apparently not the only having this Alert problem and impossible to change or cancel them.....Unbelievable that they don't do anyhing about it and millions of useless emails are going everyday on this....
Agree. This is infuriating. The Yahoo employees on here who think they are creating solutions are totally missing the point. Like many on here, I get multiple e-mails from Yahoo about stocks I no longer even own. I have deleted my entire stock portfolio to make this issue go away, but that does not help. But maybe the most infuriating thing is that your own darn e-mails provide a link to unsubscribe to this information, and those links don't work. So at a minimum, at least have the courtesy to either (a) change the e-mails to make it clear that you are working on the solution but that there is none right now or (b) create a landing page that gives this same message instead of a landing page that makes the user thinks that his/her internet connection is temporarily not working.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may be causing. The alerts should stop in the near future (no ETA at this time). In the meantime, you can create a mail filter to send those to the trash or spam folders. Here is how: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/SLN15994.html?impressions=true
IFTTT (*Link Removed - See the community guidelines for more information.*) uses yahoo finance information and one can setup email and push notification with various parameters there.
If the finance alerts are currently unavailable, then why am I still getting alert emails? I would like to stop alerts on stocks that I don't care about anymore.
I work in IT, if you are sending out alerts, there must be a job that is running. I don't understand how you no longer offer this service yet maintain the alerts set and do not allow users to cancel their alerts. If you don't want code that in the application, then shut off the job that runs in the background from sending them out.
Yes, I know, I can create a filter and have it go to spam, but that's just a lazy response to something Yahoo should fix.
This should be IT 101. Really hard to believe how this is still happening since you cancelled it back in 2015.
