    • Sub folders!

      I use Hotmail/outlook web based email at work, it breaks every now and then, but it does allow me to organise my emails into subfolders, which are always on the left side bar.

      Please bring this feature to Yahoo, it would be very useful.

          • Inbox Message List Date/Time should show date instead of day of the week

            On the Inbox page, for the previous days' messages, I would like to see the date, not the day of the week. If I am searching for something or scrolling through messages, it is more useful to me to see a date than to have to translate the previous week's day of the week into a date. If there is a preference setting for this, I would like to know about it.

                I have spoken with both Sorceress and Man-At-Arms, and we all agree that being able to delete more than one email at a time in a folder is a good idea.

                That is why King Randor issued a decree that very functionality should be included in Yahoo Mail! For more on how to delete emails, whether one at a time or in large batches, please have a look at the Yahoo! Help article “Delete emails in Yahoo Mail”, available at:

                http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN16015&locale=en_US&y=PROD_MAIL_ML

                Battle Cat and I both really appreciate you giving me the opportunity to address this for you!

                • Please add an option to print the calendar list view.

                  Please add an option to print the calendar list view.

                  An older version of the calendar would print the weekly view as a list with the complete title of the event and the location.

                  I found this print option to be very helpful. The version that prints now hides most of the information. With out important information such and the complete name and location of the event, the current calendar print outs are not very useful.

                  • Enable alphabetizing folders in the Filters folder-destination down-drop menu. This would make creating filter MUCH easier. Thanks.

                    When creating filters for mail, the down-drop menu of destination folders is not sortable, but apparently based on age of the folder. Please reset the default to alphabetical or make alphabetical sorting an option.

                    Also please consider adding a filter feature ('Apply Now' or some such) to sort existing messages according to a newly created filter.

                    • View next email up/down ISSUE

                      When I have multiple new emails, I like to chose the "oldest" and "open" that. I proceed with reading that email by scrolling through it to the end.

                      After doing so, I use the arrows in header that have flyover text of "View next email up" and "View next email down".

                      The "next" email then comes up successfully.

                      ISSUE: The "next" email comes up scrolled to the point of the original email. So, if I had scrolled down "one page" on the first email, the next email would be displayed at "one page down" from the top of the email.

                              • Calendar: Dissmiss and Snooze does not work anymore using CALDAV sync protocol

                                I am using Thunderbird with Lightning to access and manage my Yahoo calendars using CALDAV protocol. It worked smoothly until now (January 2014). Now DISMISS and SNOOZE functionality with Yahoo calendars does NOT work on my different machines with different versions of Thunderbird and Lightning. The client software have not changed at this time. It seems to be compatibility problem in your backend software.

                                This makes my workflow and yahoo calendar at all pretty unusable!

                                Other users on mozilla forum complain about the same issue as well:

                                  • SPAM! IS A MAJOR PROBLEM! Filters don't work

                                    Since the new format came in, the number of spam emails has escalated beyond belief. I have done everything you suggest to try and eliminate them, but your filters plainly don't work: sites and subjects I have set up filters for are still appearing both in my spam box and Inbox. When I try to set up another filter, it tells me "Filter already exists for this". I shall soon be forced to join the mass exodus from Yahoo after many years of using it.

                                        • Bug- trying to "reply all" but reply options don't seem to do this anymore

                                          I'm trying to reply all -the muti-arrow icon - now says reply to "conversation" - no idea what that means btw - but it only replies to sender not to everyone cc'ed. I cannot find reply all option.
