      When forwarding an email with multiple copyholders, the new email should show those copyholders so the recepient can see who was originally copied. Interestingly, this works when I use my iPhone to forward an email but not when I use my laptop. Gmail and most other providers have this simple feature...am surprised Yahoomail does not?

      • Display Unsubscribe button near TickBox

        It is very annoying to open every mail, go to buttom, click Unsubscribe. Then it is redirected to another page where you add the info and after that it is really finished.

          • Re-enable importing emails via POP

            On April 1st, Fools' Day, the new updated version of Yahoo mail will not support the import of emails via POP. Sounds like a Fool’s day joke, please fix it for the rest of the year.

            • 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.

                  Please remove the Looking for something help pop -up when viewing emails its driving me crazy. I'v tried moving it several times and it wont. Its annoying because it blocks emails we are trying to view. Please help thinking of going with gmail only because of this annoying pop-up that wont move or leave. At least give us the option to close the pop-up bc I can't stand it anymore blocking my emails

                    Even if you only make it optional please do something about putting the Top Results in my search isn't actually helping me. It makes the reading of my emails much more difficult. Most of the time the Top Results have nothing to do with what I am looking for.

                            • automatic videos

                              Automatic Videos: Dear Yahoo Mail, please ***** right off with automatically playing videos when my mailbox is empty. There isn't a human alive who actually wants this feature. It is insanely annoying, especially when I'm at work. This one "feature" and the fact that there is no way to opt out is a solid reason for me wanting to drop my yahoo account entirely. I mean seriously, every time the video pops up, I get a tad murdery.

                                • 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.

                                    • 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??
