  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.

    • 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.

        • 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!

          • 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.

            • Get rid of the 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…

                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.

                    Hello,

                    Thanks for the feedback regarding spellchecker.

                    The primary reason spellcheck has been removed is due to the fact that all browsers these days actually do automatic spell checking and caused some conflicts.

                    As such, you can simply type emails, and you’ll notice that your browser automatically detects typo’s or spelling errors by highlighting the words in red/green. And when right clicking the browser will offer suggestions as well. It was actually much more robust than our old spellcheck.

                    hope that helps. Thank you for your loyalty and support!

                    Yahoo Support

                  • 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.

                    • 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…

                            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!

                              • Allow automatic folder filing

                                Many of my folders are simply my emails with certain people. E.g., my brother emails me, the email from him goes in his folder. It would be amazing if I could tag email addresses to always go into folder X. Then I could click a "File" button (assuming the email was from someone with an auto-folder setting assigned) and the email would move to that folder automatically. That would DRASTICALLY reduce the time I spent filing as it would leave only atypical message requiring me to manually drag them to a folder. Everything else could get filed in the right…

I haven't put up a picture there and even less do I want you to connect all my email accounts with the same picture. I am FURIOUS that I can´t even remove the picture permanently. With every new mail it shows up again. Also, I´m very much annoyed about the suggestions whom to include when I send an e-mail to someone. Don´t I know without yahoo, whom to send my mails? Next, I can no longer change my nickname…

                                    • Improve the speed that emails can be written

                                      The speed in which email can open, and the speed in which emails can be written, is ridiculously slow. It has just taken me nearly 15 minutes to write less than 100 words in an email because it 'saves' every minute, and then you have to wait for all of the ads to finish downloading. I have no problems in seeing ads, but at the cost of such a slow system, it is frustrating beyond belief. Whichever computer/laptop I use, the same applies. How is Yahoo going to improve this service?

                                        • Provide real human beings to address user problems instead of an automated computer message.

                                          Provide real human beings to address user problems instead of an automated computer messages that don't pertain to the problem. I've been trying for over a week to find a solution to a problem I'm having with my inbox but can only get automated responses that aren't relevant to the problem
