  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…

        • Improve the Block function

          The block function should not take two (or three) steps to complete.
          If you select "block" for a specific e-mail or spam communication, it should block it and not allow anything further from that domain.

          Why have the users to send future e-mails from the sender into the spam folder when they should be blocked fully?
          If the blocking function is supposed to block unwanted messages, then let it do it's job as (I'm assuming here) it's supposed to do?

          Why would I (or anyone else for that matter) want to continue to receive anything that has been flagged as…

          • Allow Block to block email addresses by domain or wildcard 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.

              • Give options for deleting items in "Trash"

                Let us have options on how often to empty trash and base it on the date the item was put in trash!
                Don't delete items in trash based on date received - base it on date placed in trash. If an item is inadvertently put in trash that is old and you were saving it it disappears immediately because it's older than the last trash "dump."

                • If I typo an email address, please allow me to correct it with the cursor, instead of making me re-type the entire thing!

                  I used to be able to move the cursor to correct a typo in the "To" line, but now as soon as I'm done typing, it automatically highlights the address and does not allow changes. I have to delete the addressees name and start over. Why is this??

                  • block entire domain

                    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:

When I type my words either show up waaaay slower than when I type them or they don't show up at all. the circular loading symbol appears often. This problem only started when I upgraded to Windows10 and I only have a problem with my email. My typing works perfectly with all other programs on my computer. There is also nothing wrong with my keyboard. Help?

                                    • Need font darker & bigger

                                      How do I get the font darker & bigger. Unfortunately, I can't read it anymore because it is too small. The other updates sound great!

                                      • Please remove sexually-explicit ads.

                                        Especially the one of two men kissing. If this is not done, it will be easier for me to just use another e-mail format than to figure out how to adjust the settings for ads without lowering my privacy settings.

                                          Why don't you try leaving the email alone. Every time you people come up with one of you "brilliant" ideas, write it down on a piece of paper, crumple it up, and flush it down the toilet. I will never give you my phone number, so quit asking, and if you want me to change my never before hacked password, please explain why. Also, if you are going to suspend emails from coming through because I haven't completed something I'm not even aware of, keep in mind there might be something important I might miss like I don't know, offers…
