    • 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.

              • 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.

                • I don't like the new format for Yahoo mail. And every time I try to reset to old settings and log back in it refers to the New format. Blaaa

                  If it aint broke don't fix it! Why is everyone content on changing things up. The new version of Yahoo mail is not a winner. I want the old version back.

                  • 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.

                        • 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.

                                  When composing an email, we should be able to click on contact list and choose the recipients instead of typing them one by one. Microsoft Outlook uses this method.

                                    • Show full e-mail address of sender when hovering over sender's name

                                      In previous version of Yahoo mail, I could hover over an e-mail sender's name and see the complete e-mail address. This was very helpful when setting up filters to send specific e-mail sources to trash. It allowed for capturing the most junk with the least amount of filters.

                                      P.S. the new Yahoo really sucks. Kinda reminds me Obamacare website. Go back to what works.
