I had problems sending emails to yahoo addresses

Interesting that this problem has continued for years. I've had problems sending to Yahoo email addresses since 2011. Especially from university accounts (from different universities) and from GMX accounts.
When you consider that Yahoo! have been hacked multiple times and failed to inform their users for years even to change the password on their accounts (this affected hundreds of millions of accounts though multiple hacks), and searched all customers emails for key words for the FBI without telling anyone, I think it's obvious Yahoo! isn't the answer to anything.

Yahoo-Mail malfunction not being able to define a new basename for throw-away-addresses

Yahoo-mail has a malfunction not being able to define a new basename for throw-away-addresses.
This problem is very old and has been decribed already 2011 on http://de.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20111101121041AABusL6 with the subject: "Ich kann keine Wegwerfadresse erstellen: Service zum Erstellen des Basisnamens ist seit 2011 nicht verfügbar".

I sent away a description of this yahoo-mail-malfunction on August 10th, 2013 from the german site S1 http://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index?y=PROD&locale=de_AT&page=contact .

If You choose Mail > Mail > Fehler and "Schaltflächen/Links funktionieren nicht" this site S1 offers only one german button for contacting a customer-support-expert:
"Mail an einen Support-Mitarbeiter" linking to the site (L1) to http://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index#comm-form .

This button forwarded my description of the yahoo-malfunction to the english-speaking support-team with mail-address customercare-en@cc.yahoo-inc.com, and I have no link to contact the german speaking support team.

My description of this yahoo-mail-malfunction concerning throw-away-addresses has NOT been answered or solved from the english yahoo-support-team. Instead of a solution of the problem I was told in an E-mail to contact the german support team, which I have done already, but Yahoo has forwarded this contact to the english support team.

The link to the german support team http://help.yahoo.com//l/DE/yahoo/helpcentral/ , recommended in the E-mail from the english yahoo-support-team from 20130810 03:11 PM has a forwarding function to the english site http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=home&locale=en_US .

So with this information nobody is able to contact the german support team.

In spite of the missing information how to contact the german support team, an email from customercare-en@cc.yahoo-inc.com told me:

Our system indicates that you signed up for Yahoo! under the Germany Terms of Service. As such, your concerns can best be addressed by contacting our colleagues using the Yahoo! Germany Help pages at: http://help.yahoo.com//l/DE/yahoo/helpcentral/

To enable a customer support for German/Austrian Yahoo-users it is necessary

  1. to change the link (L1) so, that it links to the german support-team
  2. to inform Yahoo-users per E-mail, how to contact the german support team
  3. Because the contacting of the German support team is not possible because of wrong links all forwarding to the english yahoo-support-site, the english yahoo-support-team should forward the description of the yahoo-malfunction not being able to define a new basename for throw-away-addresses to the german support team.

used to be most popular webmail services until gmail are released

**Performance : **
this is happens because gmail is twice faster than yahoo

Security :
yahoo also has compromsed security that forces the user to change their password, and this is not even happen once, it happens more than once!
