  1. Please Please Please let me disable the "often included" feature

    The "often included" tab is a recipe for disaster. This new feature seems to have popped up today and I can't disable it. Some emails that I send are confidential and may be legally privileged. I don't want to accidentally include an unintended recipient merely because I have sometimes included that recipient on another message.

    A few annoyances have crept into your product over the last year or so, including the mandatory integration with Dropbox and Facebook, but this "often included" feature is a dealbreaker and will drive me to another email service if I can't disable it. Please advise.

      • Please fix your system. It will not send messages. It will not save drafts. It will not allow attachments.

        Please fix your entire program. It will not attach files. It will not send messages. It will not save drafts. It basically is NOT working.

        • Wrong picture associated to email address

          Yahoo Mail is showing incorrect images association to the addresses I type on an E-Mail.

          When I create a new E-Mail, I procceed to type the "to" address.
          I type the first name. While Yahoo shows me the address from my contact with that first name, it has associated to the address some stranger picture which is not the same person as the one I am mailing to. This is very disconcerning as I am not sure who I am addressing, if the person on the picture or the address, since the address shows me a wrong person. Is there…

            When I receive PDFs from certain users they come through as Winmail.dat files. yet others in the company cc'd on the same email get the PDF file correctly. Account settings are the same.

              • Search should include the Trash bin

                When I used the Search, it used to include my Trash. Then i could sort by folder if I wanted. Now the Trash doesn't come up when I search, which means if I delete something, and then want it, I can't find it. Search should search everything, and then I should have the option of choosing a specific folder if I want to.

                • I PAY for a premium service - I'm getting garbage. I need to be able to contact a PERSON!

                  I cannot send emails - error message "Unable to send message
                  If you are sending a link, try adding some text to it. This helps us fight spam." I am NOT even trying to send a link or attachment - just plain text. Also will not save to draft. It is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE that I cannot contact you directly to get this issue resolved!

                        From the message list, if I use the "D" + [number] keyboard shortcuts to move a message, further keyboard shortcuts such as [delete] and arrow keys stop working.

                        • Display name

                          The name displayed is not the person who is sending me the message. This causes confusion and embarrassment when you respond thinking it is someone else.
                          An example is that the word "hotmail" shows as the person sending me a message when it was actually someone in my contact list who uses Hotmail.
                          Another example is that I sent several emails individually with a similar subject line and anyone who responds to the individual emails comes over with another person displayed as the sender. Very frustrating, ready to change providers!

Those before that are not, the search yields no results, and I can't find important mail I am looking for. Is there a problem with the search function, a fairly recent problem, because in the past it used to work much better.

                                      • Using search and deleting old files. Can't multi-select and delete files.

                                        Doing a search, using multi-select and then trying to delete the files, I get a buggy pop-up that has the word "Delete" on it, an empty rectangle, and a "Cancel" button. I then tried to delete individual emails, and app completely ignores request. Just upgraded to "latest" Yahoo web app. Buggiest web site I have ever seen!

                                        • Reply and Reply to All don't work

                                          Using the Yahoo Mail site and for last week or so pressing the Reply or Reply to All buttons only brings up a blank Compose New Mail page with no sender email, no subject, no body etc. What the **** is wrong?
