    My friend's Yahoo email account has been hacked several times. I am trying to find a solution that is a lot more secure yet as simple to use but where he is still able send and receive emails from his yahoo email address.

    Maybe forward all emails going to him , to a private domain that is hosted on a secure email platform .

    What solution could you suggest. He his not computer savy at all so platform needs to remain simple to use.

    Thank you for your suggestions

    Sounds like the problem isn't with Yahoo; it's with your friend.

    Either his computer is compromised or someone has managed to guess/bruteforce his password or security question answer.

    I would have him change the password + security question/answer on his yahoo account and set it up to forward all email to his new Gmail account that you have him register. :)

    Running some kind of anti-virus program would probably be wise, too.
