  1. Can you place the Delete button back to where it use to be, and place the new archive button where the delete button is now?

    I actually think that the new archive button is pretty neat, but can it be moved? The delete button has been relocated and the archive button is in it's place now. I keep finding myself accidentally archiving stuff that I want to delete. If you return the delete button to where it use to be, and place the archive button to where you have the delete button now, I think it would be much easier.

        According to the most recent update from our engineering team this is now resolved and you should be able to access and send to your full list of contacts by clicking the ‘To’ link in a message you are composing.

        Please contact our email support team for further assistance if the issue continues. You can reach that team via the help form at the following link:

        https://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index?page=contact&locale=en_US&y=PROD_MAIL_ML

        Choose ‘Sending and Receiving’ and ‘Messages not sent’ as the categories when filling out that form.

      • Get rid of Archive

        It's a waste. Not only does it require relearning the layout of the buttons, it also creates another clutter spot - if you aren't going to delete a message, why not create a specific subject folder instead of a second clutter spot.

        If Yahoo isn't going to remove the feature, give us a setting option so we can remove it from our personal account - make it an option, not a requirement.

          • Why doesn't the new Block feature block emails from my spam. I don't want these people to be able to send me mail at all.

            New block feature should block emails senders from both inbox and spam folder. I don't want these people to send me mail at all. Come on Yahoo. You know what we wanted in a block feature. Help us really beat spam.

              • New Search is AWFUL!!! Why must you get rid of functions that actually worked.

                Please, please bring back the most recent old Search. The Refine function is now incredibly convoluted. It takes more steps to get to what you want and then you can't go back to the full search you had. When you delete an email, it used to show it was in the trash which was very useful. Now it either disappears or just stays in the folder it was in. You cannot hover over the subject line to see the whole thing. Also, Smart Views are useless since they cannot be sorted by Folder. Stop reinventing things to just reinvent them!

                • Block feature. Allow Block to block email addresses by domain instead of the complete email address.

                  Block by domain name and not by the complete email address. The spammers can use the same domain and keep changing the sender name infinitely. So block by domain. Would be much more effective.

                        I am not interested in the 'archive' button at all. Whenever I want to archive a message, I can send it to the specific folder that I create. Please give the option to delete the 'archive'button.

                            We are aware that some users are unable to pull up their list of contacts via the ‘To’ link in an email that they are composing or are unable to add those contacts once selected. Our engineering is working to resolve this issue as quickly as they can. We greatly appreciate your patience.

                            Please note that you should still be able to add a contact to an outgoing message by typing out that contact’s name or address in the ‘To’ field.

                          • Why did you put the new "archive" button where the "delete" button was?

                            Why did you put the new "archive" button where the "delete" button was? At least let me drag it to the right and move "delete" back left. I am not likely to use "archive" as I already have specific folders set up. However (of course) I use "delete" all the time.

                            Also why not allow a person to set a number of messages per page instead of having one never-ending one? Alternately allow pages to include one day's messages. Either way the "select all" for checkboxes could be used to delete a page at a time rather than having to…

                              • When choosing email address, list should come up in same order that our contact list is in.

                                Why can't you leave things alone?!!! Didn't you learn your lesson the last time when you made all those horrific changes? I know you lost a lot of us.
                                Problem: when trying to send an email, the contact list should come up the way we want it, not the way you want it. I'd like mine to come up alphabetically by last name, just the way it is listed in my contact list. It is suddenly coming up alphabetically by first name. Please put it back the way it was.
                                AND STOP FOOLING WITH THINGS THAT WORK.

                                • Allow automatic folder filing

                                  Many of my folders are simply my emails with certain people. E.g., my brother emails me, the email from him goes in his folder. It would be amazing if I could tag email addresses to always go into folder X. Then I could click a "File" button (assuming the email was from someone with an auto-folder setting assigned) and the email would move to that folder automatically. That would DRASTICALLY reduce the time I spent filing as it would leave only atypical message requiring me to manually drag them to a folder. Everything else could get filed in the right…

                                  • Can you make yahoo mail compatible to download emails from Gmail account instead of showing a replica of Gmail account.

                                    At present, when you add a gmail account it is only a replica or mirror of gmail in your yahoo account. If you delete this gmail account all your emails (of gmail) are also vanished. However, if yahoo can allow to download the emails from gmail account, they will not be deleted on deactivation or deletion of gmail account. Users will prefer to use yahoo mail over Gmail

                                      • Yahoo calendar refuses Pale Moon 26 - arbitrary useragent check.

                                        Apparently, calendar.yahoo.com performs an arbitrary useragent check which completely refuses Pale Moon 26.0 - overriding the UA with a Firefox one (tested with 38.0) brings it up just fine and fully functional. Please allow Pale Moon users access to your service. Currently it refuses all access (even the link to "use mobile in the meantime" refuses the same way.

                                        Also, why are you still sniffing useragents? That's soooo early 1990s

                                        • Search box should autosuggest contacts from Contacts or from connected social sites only.

                                          Search box should autosuggest contacts from Contacts or from connected social sites only. Currently, search box is returning contacts after pulling contacts from my mobile. Most of mobile contacts have only mobile numbers ,having no emails attached at all. Its useless and irritating to see such suggestions in contacts. Please add 'X' option to remove those suggestion as given in 'To' box of 'Compose mail'. Else can provide an option to manage all contact cards like available for "contacts"
