If you find the harsh world of pressing hot-or-not decisions creeping into your Yahoo! Mail's every corner and Welcome screen and think it does not belong there, you don't have to click Remove for each suggestion. Yahoo! Mail, thankfully, provides an easy way out of the socially networking email experience.
Disable Yahoo! Connections (and Connection Suggestions) in Yahoo! Mail
To prevent Yahoo! Mail from suggesting "connections" on your Home or Welcome tab:
- Select Options from the Yahoo! Mail toolbar.
- Follow the Mail Options link.
- Make sure Enable Connection-related features (Messages, Suggestions, Updates) is not checked.
- Click Save Changes.
Note that this disables Yahoo! Connections in all of Yahoo! Mail. You cannot focus on emails from the people connected to you through Yahoo! in folders any more either.
