Inbox Message List Date/Time should show date instead of day of the week

On the Inbox page, for the previous days' messages, I would like to see the date, not the day of the week. If I am searching for something or scrolling through messages, it is more useful to me to see a date than to have to translate the previous week's day of the week into a date. If there is a preference setting for this, I would like to know about it.

        I agree!!! They know we are irate and frustrated over their "upgrades," but they are hoping our fire will die out and we'll just suck it up and learn to live with their changes. There is a petition to ask yahoo to allow users to choose the old yahoo email service, but even that has experienced censorship. First, they needed 5,000 signatures, and when it was reached the number that was needed became 10,000. Once that was reached, it became 15,000, then 20,000 and so on and so on. :( Now, they need 45,000. It's now evident that it's futile, but still, we can go out fighting. Go here; make yourself heard: http://www.change.org/petitions/yahoo-bring-back-the-old-version-of-yahoo-mail?share_id=nwjUaPVpvD&utm_campaign=signature_receipt&utm_medium=email&utm_source=share_petition

        I agree!
        They ask us "please tell us what you think about our changes (which is all the time) then they ignore our suggestions, requests, and pleas. We are just Ginnie Pigs. They even blocked some of my accounts (I believe) because of my comments (which I should be able to post). BROTHER ! I used to love yahoo but It's time to leave! And folks...it IS easy! It's not that we are afraid of "change" we're afraid of yahoo messing up our lives!! Yahoo's trademark is NOT RESPONDING among many other things.

        This **** has been going on for tooooooooo long! Sh...t it's JANUARY (months later) and the Folders link still won't open and I've got alot of business emails I have to tend to. I mean I am litterally SCREWED !!! Freakin yahoo!!! They zap me an email saying they've deleted another address from my contact list, put a permanent AD in my inbox fooling me it's an email. HOW DARE THEM!! took away tabs, blocks me out of my accounts, links/options either don't work or aren't there anymore, never warning us when they're going to be ***g up their site, the send toolbar's at the bottom, the vertical scroll bar's defaulted in the middle of the freakin email, can't use the back button, and on and on and on!!

        Changes, Surprises, NO reply’s to Requests/Comments/Votes BROTHER! Customer Support? RIGHT! It's called resolve by yourself with Yahoo's Q/A's and good luck!! They don't reveal their ph# for assistance and when you find it from the search engine and call ***t your on hold for up to 2 hours or more. My time is TOO PRECIOUS for this **** and I refuse to be treated like this as a customer!!!!! I mean you-all DO realize that Yahoo will always be ****ing with their site no matter how many comments, votes, requests, or begging you do don't you? They've gotten worse the last 3 years. They change, they change things back, they take it away again, then give it back, then not, and on and on and on!!! They'll change after everyone's left! It's already TOO late!

        I have read hundreds/thousands of comments about yahoo constantly changing their site and the "unsatisfied" members and I see yahoo really doesn't care! Of the 2+ decades I've had yahoo, I've only but once got a response to my feedback! I mean really! Why don't you Yahoo Admin put the interface, links, and user friendly options back to the Classic yahoo? That's what everybody wants. I can see Yahoo's stock going way down quickly along with their member status!

        It's time to stop begging? It's time for us to take control vs Yahoo taking control of our personal information and accounts! Don't even THINK this is going to end because it won't! Once the can of worms are open it becomes empty! They're always going to be ***ing with their site which is why I (and after reading the hundreds of comments over the months) the hundreds of others that have left!!!

        I’ve been with yahoo since they were born ! They used to be SO user friendly and enjoyable to have email accounts and now….they’ve become very UN-user friendly!! Anyway along with leaving yahoo I HAVE stopped purchasing their stock and have spread the word about their raunchy service and nosey staff. It’s like their staff is bored or something to be constantly changing and working on their site on a daily basis. Even when I am just sitting looking at the open email account I see in my task bar a bunch of data running by saying their downloading **** and stuff. It’s a bunch of B ***** T !! Self centered, ignorant and self rightous staff!! I won't come back!

        If anyone wants to leave them it’s easy to find another email provider. Research by typing in top 10 free email providers and study what they offer as for space, folders, etc. to accommodate your needs. I myself went to Hotmail (which is now Outlook) but they have alot of the features Yahoo USED to have plus they're PREDICTABLE and STABLE! They give me enough space, has the easy way of creating folders option, and has great customer service, live chat, a phone number, and community support.

        So go for it !!!

        I suspect Yahoo mail doesn't want you to use it. The failure to date a message properly had to be intentional. Prepare to change to a different mail server unless you want to remain at zero of the evolutionary curve of yahoo mail.

        10.13.13

        It is absolutely essential to have the date displayed as a sortable field in the Inbox. If this is not restored, I will have to find another provider. I am sure I am not alone. Maybe those in charge of such changes should get a real job.

      • S.R.S.R. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes. I would much rather see both the date and the time for all messages, regardless of whether they were received in the last week or not.

        Also, please bring back the message size column.

        I have most or all of the features Yahoo had by using Mozilla Thunderbird (FREE), including PRINT, sorting and tabs. I open my Ymail and G...., and ISP mail in one place. Thunderbird is highly customizable. I have no connection with Mozilla. Mozilla is a nonprofit, I think. I AM putting this comment where people are complaining about Yahoo email. Yahoo won't get my advertising views or clicks from using Thunderbird. Maybe they will respond to this. Yahoo needs to quit copying Google and Gmail. There is too much "sharing" with Facebook and other places. All are methods of advertising. Also look into Adblock.

        There must be a preference setting for this under options because mine shows only time for any emails arriving today, and date for all other below.

      • Lynn SnyderLynn Snyder commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I personally want to see the date and the time. If there is a lively discussion with email going back and forth, that can help me pinpoint the message I am looking for without opening a bunch of messages.
