  1. A one click function to block email address

    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.

    • 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.

      • Show Attachment Icon

        Usually people do not like changes, but in this case the changes are not good.

        1.- Showing the attachments on TOP of the e-mail is useful for verification that we have attached a file.

        (It should come back this feature)

        2.- Showing the attachment on TOP and the type of attachment too ie (PDF, JPEG, RAR, etc)

        (This feature is very important because our company received hundreds of spam e-mails asking us to open an attachment. If we recognize as RAR or ZIP we do not open the attachments).

        3.- Please remember that changes should show improvement and benefit. In…

        • 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…

          • 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.

            • Delete All Messages In a Folder

              Really, in today's world, sometimes the number of messages in a Folder gets large. Why make me delete them 50 or 200 at a time? Why not just DeleteAll? Please implement this simple thing. Otherwise, you will end up saving them for me forever.

                • deleted drafts should go into the trash folder

                  DELETED DRAFTS SHOULD GO INTO THE TRASH FOLDER -- On several occasions I have deleted drafts I was working on by accident. There seem to be several ways this can happen and it has happened to me both on the desktop version and with an ipad app. Currently there is no way to recover the draft and there should be. I have had to waste substantial time rewritting long emails that were almost complete when I lost them. Thanks.

                  • Optional Signature

                    it will be great, to have an option to add the signature by choice to outgoing mails.
                    At present if I say 'show signature'- it adds it under all outgoing mails.
                    Since I use the yahoo mail as a personal/work mails, sometimes I do nt want to have a signature for my work mail.

                    Perhaps an option to 'undo' signature - at the time of composing
                    or 'add' signature at the time of composing. (- the signature is set already in settings)

                      • Undo button when composing

                        Please create an undo button when composing emails. I found no way to restore my previous draft and could not figure out how to undo when everything was deleted. I highlighted a large section of text and pressed tab, normally that would indent the text but it didn't, it deleted it. I could not get it back and it was very frustrating. It would be nice if the typical functions for the keyboard used in Office still applied when composing an email in Yahoo. Yes I noticed the indent button at the bottom of the compose section but it was…

                        • Make it easier to search, select, and delete a bunch of emails

                          After searching emails which meet specific criteria the view shows emails nicely grouped by date/period. It should be possible to select a bunch of emails by those groupings. At this time each email has to be individually selected. A smart company would make it easier for people to delete useless content so that the company would not have to continuously invest in increasing storage.

                          • Enhance filters

                            Filters right now are extremely limited, without being able to handle multiple entries in the field box. This results in needing to create 50+ filters where one will do. supporting operators like OR, AND, and NOT would make filters much more useable.

                                I use my yahoo account for work and often need to print emails. If an attachment was included in the email, and I choose to print it out for my records, nowhere on the print-out does it indicate an attachment was included. This is imperative for proper documentation. I used to be able to sync Outlook to my account and print from there, but am no longer able to do that either, so I am requesting you add this important feature. I need to be able to keep records in files of what was included entirely in all sent/received messages.

                                      Apologies if there is a resolution that I've overlooked but.....why are my Inbox messages now grouped by date, week, month? I'm not talking about sort...but actually grouped There's now a space between messages I receive today versus yesterday verses the day before and so one. It's entirely unnecessary and actually annoying to look at. There's only so many messages that fit to a screen and the extra space taken up by these separation bars is a giant wast of it. Again...I've looked in settings to remove this grouping but haven't found a resolution to it. If there is one, someone…

                                      • Dynamic Date Separator

                                        The link provided by Product Support (Admin, Yahoo) is great, unless you want your emails viewed in chronological order minus the Dynamic Date Separator. Some users like alphabetical sorting, others like me, want chronological. I want the email provider I've been paying for back, not the one I have now with the Dynamic Date Separator. The Dynamic Date Separator now takes up space where my emails used to be and provides nothing new. If the concept was to reduce clutter and make the screen easier to view, this is an epic failure and you've all been had in a board…

                                        • Dynamic Date Separators

                                          If you do not make dynamic date separators optional, I will be giving up this email address permanently after over 15 years. Very disappointing that you are forcing users into a format very few are interested in.
