  2. Use labels instead of folders

    Use labels instead of folders

    I strongly believe that Yahoo should allow us to use labels instead of folders for e-mails, like Gmail does.

    Labels do provide a lot more flexibility, as it is possible to assign multiple labels to an e-mail.

    With Gmail, every e-mail that comes in gets the Inbox label assigned to it, meaning it will show in the Inbox view. It is possible to create rules that assign additional labels to incoming e-mails.
    For example, assign a label called "Family" to e-mails from family members. Incoming e-mails from a family member will show in the Inbox…

  3. Aug. 2107, want the old yahoo mail back.

    In Aug, 2017, my yahoo mail page suddenly changed without me doing anything. I want the old mail page back where you could select an email and click block sender.

  4. Remove unwanted and disfunctional "Clip Coupons" banner from top of messages. Slows mailbox, and causing issues with simple email functions.

    Please please please get rid of this feature or allow users to disable it. It has slowed down my email box function tremendously, and all of a sudden I am unable to delete a message while viewing it in read mode! If i click the garbage can to delete a message that displays this stupid clip coupon banner, the trash can icon just turns grayed-out and my email freezes. I have to delete any messages that display this "feature" from the main inbox list mode. Annoying!!!!

  5. Yahoo STOP asking me to Manage accounts when I login

    Yahoo STOP asking me to Manage accounts when I login each time?? Its such a PAIN. I DO NOT want to add, switch, remove my accounts. Do not try to control what we want. STOP it. Remove that Stu** feature. NOT NEEDED. Or at least give an option to OPT OUT of this feature.

  7. Return original language settings

    Suddenly in my english language , all Computer programs, Yahoo mail has started to appear in Finnish that is my native ligo but not my Computer lingo. It is very disturbing as I do not know what the finnish Computer terms mean. Why do you make this type of changes without asking people are they comfortable with "enforced" assumptions?

  8. I find it very frustrating how when I'm in an email and want to go back to list view, the system moves me to the top of the list.

    It's crazy how when I'm in an email and want to go back to list view it defaults to the top of the list. It makes it nearly impossible to review and clear out emails in a long list. If this isn't fixed I'll have to switch email accounts

  9. Email has become VERY slow

    I have used Yahoo mail for decades, it has NEVER been so slow. Now I know why, you have allowed us to be monitored by many, many trackers. Even though I can block them, it still slows down my mail and causes it to malfunction. It has only gotten worse the past few weeks. You need to find another way to make your money or perhaps I will FINALLY get a new email server.

  11. The new yahoo mail is terrible. I want the old version back.

    Please give us the option of either choosing the new or the old version. I'm not alone. Everybody I talk to is just as unhappy with the new version as my wife and I are. We hate the new yahoo mail. please reconsider. We might have to start using another company.

  14. Let me change my account back to English language

    After 17 years of using Yahoo as my main email address it no longer allows me access in English language. Why on earth would you do this? Please change it back as soon as possible.

  16. Accessibility issues in yahoo mail

    When displaying HTML email, the Yahoo mail preprocessor is removing accessibility code meaning people using assitive technology will have significantly more trouble consuming the information sent. They may not even be able to see it at all.

    Attributes that are removed include; 'role', 'tabindex', and all 'aria-' attributes, as well as all HTML5 elements. When HTML5 elements are removed all attributes on that element are also removed, so any style, or class will be lost.

    There is also an issue with the 'id' attributes being prefixed and 'for' attributes not so this leads to a missmatch which removes the function.…

  18. I want my previous version of Yahoo mail back.

    You changed the Yahoo Mail version without asking. It is harder to use. Can I get the previous version back?

  19. Please add an option to receive read and delivery receipts on emails and allow the users to set the priority of the email.

    It is a basic necessity to have features like read receipt and setting priority of emails, all services must provide them rather than us putting something like reply or urgent in the subject.
