  1. Please give an option to remove the day of week grouping inline on the Inbox.

    That's what the date column is for and the breaks down the Inbox list are extremely distracting and serve little purpose. I am really tired of Yahoo just adding random garbage that no one has asked for with no way to disable it.

    • Create a way to customize or disable 'Smart Views'.

      They are in my way and useless to me as they are now. I don't search to things based on people or finance. I need information like open orders, policy updates, billing notifications. We have each learned to organize our emails in the way that suits us best and each way is as different we as individuals are from each other. 'One size fits all (or most)' methods really just irritate everyone because it's never quite right for anyone.

      And so I repeat: The 'Smart Views' is in my way and if I can't customize it, I want to eliminate…

      • While writing an answer to an important mail, 29 drafts were created by Yahoo today! It was not the case before... not logical

        While writing an answer to an important mail, 29 drafts were created by Yahoo today! It was not the case before... not logical.
        Until now, I have always worked on the last version of my draft.
        Please allow us to manage the last version of our draft without creating hundreds of additional drafts, impossible to manage! Also, it slows down a lot Yahoo mail... Thank you

          • Please get rid of this Trending on Yahoo! It's SO anoying and stupid. I don't want all those headlines in face while I read my email.

            I don't want and need to be bombarded with all those headlines while trying to read my email! It's so annoying and distracting. Besides, my kids also use my email account to contact their friends. They don't need that "trending on yahoo" either! Please DO SOMETHING!

                It should be easy to block email address. I don't know why this has not been implemented. Do you guys make money from it?

                I don't want to have to go into settings. It's true spammers can just generate new email addresses, but at least that makes it slightly harder for them. And also an option to block their host.

                • Why can't I see the send button or am able to scroll to it when doing a reply?

                  Suddenly my inbox view has changed to having messages under month's or date headings. When I need to reply to a message I can no longer see the send button or scroll down to click it. I haven't touched or changed anything myself in yahoo mail. I can't even find a way to put it back the way it used to be either. This is a crock to say the least.

                      A new lightning bolt appeared over the newsfeed icon in Yahoo Mail. This is almost as annoying as the jumping numbers. I have no idea why it's there, I don't use newsfeed.

                      • Autosuggest OPT OUT

                        Suggesting which contacts I want to add to my emails is very annoying and entirely unhelpful. I want the option to OPT COMPLETELY OUT of this feature rather than what I read on your "help" page which states that I can opt out of a particular email suggestion each time I add contacts to a message. This is frustrating. Please fix. I do not want yahoo to guess who I want to send a message to. It's my email and I know exactly who I want to add to the message.

                        ADD AN OPT OUT of autosuggest button under settings.

                        • Ungroup emails - I don't use it, I don't like it, allow me to opt out.

                          I do not group my emails - I don't want to be forced to use that system when it's not needed, nor do I care for it. Allow me to "not" and opt out of it. It was fine and suddenly today, I'm being grouped. Stop it. Changing email providers is a hassle, but this is getting ridiculous.

                                • Multiple Signatures Option

                                  Within the Settings/Writing Emails section, it would be very helpful to have a 'multiple signatures' option. The user can select a default signature, or quickly change the settings to use a different signature. By doing this, the user eliminates the need to hand type a different signature, and subsequently, his/her Yahoo Email account can be better used for personal and/or business use.

                                    • constantly accidently deleting valid email, due location of delete option in middle of descriptive line. Also, unable to restore lost email.

                                      The delete option badly needs to be relocated, so that one does not accidently delete a valid email. Also, a restore feature needs to be clearly available and stated.

                                        • Set Default Order for Email Addresses/Phone Numbers/Etc. in Contacts

                                          Every time I edit anything for a contact with multiple email addresses, the email addresses get sorted in a different random order. This happens even when I don't touch the email addresses but edit some other field. Same thing happens with phone numbers and possibly IM handles & physical addresses. This problem may only occur if there are more than 2 items in a category.

                                          So my request is simple, the ordering should always be what's shown in the Edit Details view. Otherwise, you never know which entry takes priority.

                                          Perhaps this could be accomplished by sorting entries in the…
