  1. Interface Language

    You should add back the option to change languages and content into account settings. Not being able now to change the language is so anoying. For example, even if my ip address is different from the one I've created my account, and my yahoo mail language is one I've selected a few years back, the yahoo content page and the mail app dosen't change the to the current location, as i read in yahoo help. so please put back the option to change the language and also the yahoo content. will be very helpful. thanks

    please change Yahoo email back so Pop access again marks messages as read on the Yahoo server after downloaded in Outlook, Apple mail, etc. etc. Or put an option in Yahoo so folks can set the way they need.

  4. 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…

  7. 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…

    Get rid of the top results view. There is nothing useful about this feature.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. A color theme where I get to choose the colors.

    Why not have one color theme where I get to choose the colors - perhaps by color map or by RGB value. My system can display millions of colors and you give me 6 to choose from?

  13. 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??

  15. 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."

  16. 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

  17. 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.
    A "universal" Unsubscribe button displayed near the mail TickBox it will really good feature.

  20. mail themes

    It would be killer if I could just upload my own personal picture/theme for Yahoo Mail and choose from a list of PRESET fore/background colors because Yahoo Mail doesn't have very many themes to choose from, and the ones that are available are boring as heck and none of which are actually personable for me and I don't think they're going to be changing that anytime soon (they seem lazy). I like skulls, stars, gamer & nerdy stuff. They don't even have any hearts (which I would never use) or very basic shapes like "Chevron" or " Moroccan", which just…
