  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.

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • We do not wish to change how our mail is sorted every time we check our mail. We want to set it and forget it.

            The option to change how our mail is sorted is a joke. We do not wish to do that every time we check our mail. We want to set it and forget it. It's not rocket science people. BTW, Stop changing stuff, you don't need to fix it if it's not broken. Less is more.

            • 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.

                    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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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!

                        • 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…

                          • Return back 'Move to Folder' option for 'Disposable Addresses'

                            I have a huge number of 'Disposable Addresses'.
                            And for each of them an option "Move to Folder" had been set which put every 'Disposable Address' email to its folder.

                            !!! Now there is no such option in 'Disposable Addresses' !!!

                            Yahoo Team automatically tried to create an individual Filter for every 'Disposable Addresses' "Move tp Folder" option I had before.

                            But... As I can understand the number of Filters has a limit.

                            I gues so because when I try to create a new Filter (Add a new filter) I get a warning message "Sorry, an unknown error has occurred.…

                            • Get rid of the Archive button. Do you believe there is anyone that hasn't created folders to save and categorize the emails they want .

                              Get rid of the Archive button. What purpose does it serve? Does anyone believe that users haven't always been creating folders to categorize and save the emails they want? Seems like just another useless feature, kinda like the idea of having to endlessly scroll through all the emails to get to the last email, instead of having pages, like the original email had.

                              • 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 hate the grouping by date and cannot figure out how to get rid of it other than to get rid of Yahoo. I have created a new Outlook email and, if Yahoo does not get rid of it or allow me the choice (as in Outlook), I will ditch this. I thought we went through this about a year or so ago. I logged on today and the date groups are back with no way to get rid of it. Why does Yahoo push "features" on us and not let us opt out????

                                      Yahoo Mail has been very good for me as of late. I like how links now show a preview in the body of mail. Thanks! Now, please let us either use our own backgrounds for themes OR add some new ones! There used to be over 50 choices. Gmail lets us upload our own. That would be great!

                                            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.
