  1. Please give an option to remove the day of week grouping inline on the Inbox.

    That's what the date column is for and the breaks down the Inbox list are extremely distracting and serve little purpose. I am really tired of Yahoo just adding random garbage that no one has asked for with no way to disable it.

    • A one click function to block email address

      It should be easy to block email address. I don't know why this has not been implemented. Do you guys make money from it?

      I don't want to have to go into settings. It's true spammers can just generate new email addresses, but at least that makes it slightly harder for them. And also an option to block their host.

      • Autosuggest OPT OUT

        Suggesting which contacts I want to add to my emails is very annoying and entirely unhelpful. I want the option to OPT COMPLETELY OUT of this feature rather than what I read on your "help" page which states that I can opt out of a particular email suggestion each time I add contacts to a message. This is frustrating. Please fix. I do not want yahoo to guess who I want to send a message to. It's my email and I know exactly who I want to add to the message.

        ADD AN OPT OUT of autosuggest button under settings.

        • Show Attachment Icon

          Usually people do not like changes, but in this case the changes are not good.

          1.- Showing the attachments on TOP of the e-mail is useful for verification that we have attached a file.

          (It should come back this feature)

          2.- Showing the attachment on TOP and the type of attachment too ie (PDF, JPEG, RAR, etc)

          (This feature is very important because our company received hundreds of spam e-mails asking us to open an attachment. If we recognize as RAR or ZIP we do not open the attachments).

          3.- Please remember that changes should show improvement and benefit. In…

          • 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.

              • 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…

                • That pop-up ad for installing the Yahoo Mail Chrome extension is the most annoying thing I've ever seen on Yahoo Mail, been here since 1998.

                  If I have to close a pop-up that isn't really a pop-up and gets around my ad and pop-up blockers every time I open Yahoo Mail, I will strongly consider switching to email service providers. Been a Yahoo mail user since 1998. Easily the most annoying thing Yahoo has ever done. The thing pops up constantly. Pop-up is for the Yahoo Mail Chrome extension. Do not want.

                  • Give the option to remove date headers; choosing a different sort method is not a solution.

                    There is absolutely no reason to not give us the option to remove the date separators. None. Choosing another sort method is unacceptable, and you should be embarrassed to even suggest such a lame choice to your dedicated users. Many of us like to see an uncluttered interface, and you should give us the option to remove useless "features" such as these date headers/separators/whatever-you-feel-like-calling-them. I know there are other comments here that ask for the same thing, but I think you should hear this over and over again.

                    • Please Please Please let me disable the "often included" feature

                      The "often included" tab is a recipe for disaster. This new feature seems to have popped up today and I can't disable it. Some emails that I send are confidential and may be legally privileged. I don't want to accidentally include an unintended recipient merely because I have sometimes included that recipient on another message.

                      A few annoyances have crept into your product over the last year or so, including the mandatory integration with Dropbox and Facebook, but this "often included" feature is a dealbreaker and will drive me to another email service if I can't disable it. Please advise.

                      • 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.

                        • Optional Signature

                          it will be great, to have an option to add the signature by choice to outgoing mails.
                          At present if I say 'show signature'- it adds it under all outgoing mails.
                          Since I use the yahoo mail as a personal/work mails, sometimes I do nt want to have a signature for my work mail.

                          Perhaps an option to 'undo' signature - at the time of composing
                          or 'add' signature at the time of composing. (- the signature is set already in settings)

                              It's a security threat if I use any computer that's not mine, because it's so easy to overlook the option when signing in. What is the reason Yahoo changed this, to support multiple accounts? Is there a better way to do it?

                                  It is very annoying to have to almost completely scroll through and email again to get to were it was cut off. On the Desktop site this is completely unnecessary.

                                  • show attachment on printed email

                                    I use my yahoo account for work and often need to print emails. If an attachment was included in the email, and I choose to print it out for my records, nowhere on the print-out does it indicate an attachment was included. This is imperative for proper documentation. I used to be able to sync Outlook to my account and print from there, but am no longer able to do that either, so I am requesting you add this important feature. I need to be able to keep records in files of what was included entirely in all sent/received messages.

                                    • I'm frustrated with the signature page. I have my own business and it doesn't allow me to have logo, name and website w/o an error message

                                      I want to be able to import my logo, add my business name and contact info as well as my company website...seems like a simple, yet impossible request?!?!?!?

                                          Drafts are saved automatically when you stop typing for a short time. If you’d like to save manually you can press ctrl+S on your keyboard.

                                          Spellcheck is still available in Yahoo Mail. Just press the icon that looks like “abc” with a check mark next to the letters. Please see this Yahoo Help article for details.

                                          Use spell-check in Yahoo Mail: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/SLN3593.html
