  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.

    • Please do NOT automatically play videos when I empty my spam or delete folders

      You made a recent change where you automatically play videos when one empties the spam or trash folders. I don't mind you showing videos that I may choose to play. But please don't start a video assuming I want to watch it. I find it annoying!

      • No more video ads!!

        I am close to switching to another email provider because yahoo mail cannot keep up when I am typing an email. The video ads slow down the service so much that every other word is omitted from my emails or I have to sit and wait for the service to respond in mid sentence. I, and I am sure most users, will not pay for an ad free service in 2016. There are plenty of free email providers that do not have video ads running in the background! Therefore, if you make me switch then I also would not be…

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                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.

                • 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.

                  • 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…

                                We need the block function to be more clear. For example, if I un-check "Send all future messages to Spam" does that mean it will automatically delete any email received from a blocked sender? Or does that mean it will just let the email go to the Inbox?

                                Secondly, we need the ability to block an entire domain. If you're less technically inclined, that means I need the ability to block everything from the part of the email address after the @. So let's say I get a bunch of messages from different people but they're all @loseweightfast.org. I need…

                                  We appreciate your feedback on this option. Checking the ‘Send all future messages to Spam’ should cause emails from that sender to be directed to your Spam folder. Unchecking that option should simply block the address.

                                  It is also possible to block a domain. This can be done by accessing your blocked list within the settings menu. Please take a look at the following help article for more information:

Now there are several frustrating quirks passed off as features created by programmers with too much time on their hands. All I wanted to do is copy a list of emails on a BCC list into a new email. Since they are on a BCC list, I couldn't just reply all. However, copying emails doesn't work.

                                  • Match Gmail in enabling 'reply' to sent items

                                    I frequently search for someone I've sent an email to, then hit reply to send another email to them / chase. On yahoo this defaults back to replying to me, absolutely not what I want. Instead I have to 'reply all' and then delete my name. Inefficient. On gmail it realises what I want to do, and defaults to the person I am trying to reach. Far more efficient and a great feature

                                    • Allow us to add account-specific filters. i.e. add filters for a gmail account linked with yahoo

                                      (Currently 'filter emails like this' is greyed out for the gmail account I linked with my Yahoo)

                                      • Fix Auto Suggest

                                        Since you won't let users opt out of your auto suggest feature, then FIX it! it currently does not suggest contacts from my contacts list, but instead suggests obsolete e-mail addresses from very dated e-mails and unrecognized e-mail addresses. This bug creates a very serious risk of mis-sends.

                                        • Reconsider getting rid of space-wasting "dynamic separators"

                                          I hated this unnecessary space-wasting feature last summer when you forced it on everybody, and I hate it just as much NOW.
