Please Bring Back Tabs
There is a reason those in this forum use Yahoo and not Gmail. It is based on a difference in thinking how best to design webmail for both the casual and power user. Please, please bring back Tabs or allow Power users to use the old version that allowed for multiple tabs open at once. This is a major issue that determines the usability of the product.
Please bring back tabs for better control.
I want my tabs back. Fire the idiot who did this redesign and give me something back that is usable.
I would like to suggest tab features suppose I am writing a mail and I need to take a reference of other mail then I need to close that compose mail screen and then take the reference and again click on the draft mail. So I would suggest if you provide new feature to open a mail in new tab the i would be easy to navigate with in the different mail.
When mail was opened before tabs would appear on the top of the page. Several letters could be open and quickly pointed to and seen without going back to the listing menu. That feature was a big benefit. It has not been retained. I would like to see it again.
This version of Yahoo mail is the worst. very disappointing.
I did like the tabs feature of the last version, where I could toggle between several open emails. It was really a NICE thing. Please try to bring that back. Currently I am very disgusted with Yahoo Mail.
want the old look back - there are no tabs on the top with the open emails...search is terrible, look is bad, sending options are not easy -- Please let us switch back..
Nobody will hold it against you if you admit your mistake and reinstate this very useful tool.
You could even spin it as:
"We at Yahoo! introduced new features and our loyal customers and users informed us that we may have missed the mark on some of the changes. We have heard your valuable feedback and we will be bringing certain features back within X-number of days. We are grateful that our customers are so passionate about our product and we will do everything we can to provide them with the best service possible; thank you and again we apologize for any inconveniences we caused during this process!
There, I even wrote your press-release for you, you're welcome!
Yes. Bring back tabs. Bring back Yahoo. Yahoo is NOT Google. That's why I'm 'Yahoo'
The new yahoo mail is awful! You can't view multiple emails at once. It's always freezing up and saying there is no connection. You can only view one thing at a time. The menu isn't static: if you want to look in your folders, the inbox, contacts, compose, etc. menu disappears. This means you can't compare emails in your folders with emails in your inbox. Not to mention the replying to an email just got ten times more complicated. It doesn't instantly reply to all so if you're trying to communicate with multiple people make sure you choose the right one.
Bring Back Mail Tabs. It was great having multiple emails open in different tabs. It was easier to write emails being able to reference other emails.
Why make all free email systems all act and look alike?
if you don't bring back tabbed e-mail, I'm leaving. I've had this e-mail address forever and don't want to dump it.
Why did you get rid of tabs, now it's so hard to follow on a long email especially when there are many back and forth emails.
No one is buying your "too many tabs open made tabs less efficient" excuse. Your assertion you will not bring back tabs reeks of arrogance and a deaf ear to what hundreds of thousands of us are REALLY saying.
i'm starting a new idea for tabs because i still have 2 votes left. ALL my votes go for TABS! (here's the other thread that's still open: https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/210695-yahoo-mail/suggestions/4801532-tabs-multi-tasking-new-version
and, just to let yahoo know, an idea is only 'completed' when it's actually done, not when you've simply written it off.
can you imagine what would happen if firefox or google suddenly released a new version of their browsers that eliminated tabs?! yahoo, that's how STUPID your change is!
You "completed" the comment to bring back the tabs, by responding that Recent button was added to address the issue. This is NOT satisfactory as you can see from other responses. Over 100,000 people have taken the time and effort to complain about this...you really should listen.
you removed our 100,000 plus requests to bring back tabs, so I'm starting a new one. You know this new email is a total FAIL. You know we have a petition going asking to give us back what worked. You know we want FUNCTIONALITY, yet you keep refusing to give long time users, including business customers what they are asking for. Your solutions was to REMOVE the thread asking for tabs back.
WHERE IS THE 100,000 VOTES ON BRING BACK TABS??????????????

Also the drag and drop attachment.
The new idea is LISTEN to what your audience is begging you for! Nobody wants to jump ship - but Yahoo is really distressing its user base with development decisions that demonstrate real scorn for their users' requests. How can you remove one of the most highly appreciated features of your mail system without an option to re-enable? Why are you still keeping so many of us frustrated with you? I just don't get it. I wait with a ray of hope that you will listen.
I do NOT like this latest version of yahoo mail. There used to be tabs at the top of the page to move between several open emails or an email I was in the process of composing. I can no longer do that & it's very annoying. Is there a way to change the view so I can move more easily between open emails? If not, can I go back to the older version?
Discontinuing tabs is creating lot of inconveniences.
Bring back tabs,
I am missing tabs at top for emails very much. They served as reminders
for me of items to address for the day. I'd open various emails, then close the tabs during the day once they were addressed. Now I have no reminders- this is affecting my work in a negative way.
OFFER FULL VERSION OF OLD TABBED YAHOO AS AN OPTION IN NEW YAHOO MAIL as opposed to BASIC YAHOO
For some reason, after I chose a theme, my tabs at the top of my email which would let me toggle between the emails and the inbox has disappeared. I would love to have it back, it was much easier to navigate.
This latest change to messages layout is terrilbe! There are no tabs for multiple messages to be open at one time. Moving the function key to the bottom is terrible. I want to be able to go back to the previous version. how can I do this?
Otherwise I am very happy with my Yahoo and I have appreciated the improvements that have been made over time, but this one is awful and it was needed! It was perfect before.
Please give me back my email tabs! It was the reason I loved Yahoo above others! Now you are no better than AOL. :(
Bring back the tabs in Yahoo mail. Then you can do whatever you think will improve the UI, but tabs are essential.
New design is rubbish.
◆ Bring back tabs.
◆ Bring back font size by various pt sizes instead of the imprecise small, medium, large, XL.
◆ Bring back folder visibility, don't hide main folders when I view other folders.
◆ Bring back or create better contrast.
◆ Remove the annoying theme selector at the bottom-left that irritatingly pops up when my mouse accidentally hovers over it.
◆ Just revert to the old design, the new design is rubbish.
If I wanted gmail or a psuedo-gmail, I would use gmail. I hate new mail and want the tabs back! It's too simple. Marissa go back to Google and ***** up their mail.
is much better when we can open different window at the same time, before I could open old message and come back.
2 thumbs down on the new conversation organization! It is terribly clunky and frustrating to use when trying to write emails. If I need to refer to an email out of the conversation, the email I'm composing just disappears without being saved. At least bring back a separate tab for composing so you can look at/search the inbox or a folder or keep a message open to reference without leaving the email you're composing.
THIS IS NOT AN INTUITIVE ORGANIZATION METHOD! I'm trying to organize an event with several different groups of people involved, and Yahoo now just lumps their emails without allowing me to sort which participants should belong in the same conversation. I spend way too much time trying to sift through the conversations to find the emails I need. Searching is difficult because the topics are similar between the different recipients, or there are different combinations of the same people for different messages.
I've had my Yahoo account for more than a decade, and this is the first time I've thought seriously about switching to something else. Did you do ANY market testing before unleashing this?
Frequently throughout the day I would toggle back and forth from emails, sorts and compositions that I would have up when working on a project. Now, I have to completely get out of one to get to another rather than just clicking on the tab to go back and forth. This is especially bothersome when composing an email.
The single most valuable feature I was to be able to have multiple messages open at the same time. That is no longer possible. If this is not changes back soon I will cancel my account and use a different e-mail carrier. I do not prefer this visual format, as well.
Hi Yahoo. I prefer the previous version! Please bring back the Tabs! Not all conversations can be represented by one stream. Its the ability of the last version to move between different streams and conversations that I liked and used. Its one reason that I use Yahoo instead of gmail.
I know others have said the same.
return tabs. restore the old version to the old version - allowing your customers to choose whether they like the new version or think it is lousy (i'm the latter). And ask your PR people to stop with the quotes that the protests against the new version are just resistance to change. Change isn't the problem when you tried to copy Gmail and trashed some of the best yahoo-mail features in the process. Spin it however you want in the press - but please allow your customers to choose what they want and allow a genuine choice between old and new (not basic trashed and new trashed). Bring back TABS. The new version is dysfunctional and the basic/old site is simply functionless. Do you dislike your customers?
BRING BACK TABS!!!!!!
I'd vote for someone else's post but you only allow 3 votes. we need more than 3 votes!
we need those tabs back. it makes managing a desktop full of email much easier when we can access a few at a time.
I do not like that the tabs are gone. Please put the tabs back!
Please put back the tab format or give us an option to switch back to the old format. I hate the new format. I am planning to switch to gmail
I want my tabs so i can have multiple emails open and go back to mail searches while having a new email in another tab, I like the themes and the new look is good but i want the old functions to still be there. Don't change the design if it isnt better or intuitive.
Yahoo = boohoo Its frustrating and it sucks... but as I understand it, your giving me free email service so I offer this feedback purely as opinion Im still thankful for the years with yahoo, but I may be moving on. I need to explore.
Reverse the update or lose your client base.
Many of us want the option to have the old mail version. If you are gathering feedback and listening to your users, it doesn't sound like it as many comments are asking for that option. I mean how many votes does "Please Bring Back Tabs" need until you listen to what your users want? The new version is hard on the vision to some users too. I certainly don't enjoy sending an email to a group and having them bunched together in responses in one email. A person might respond to the wrong contact. This is just frustrating to say the least. Please listen to your users. A fix to allow us to chose the new version or the old version would be appreciated and seems like a doable option to please everyone.
I really loved the tabs' ability to have several emails open at the same time and I dont see them anymore. Please bring them back. Thanks.
Re Tabs, Yahoo! wrote: "Our goal with the new Mail is to solve for multi-tasking without the need for permanent tabs. We group messages together so you have fewer reasons to switch between messages. We added quick reply at the bottom of messages, so you don’t have to open a separate compose window when you want to reply to a message."
You are assuming we are switching between messages of a particular string. I don't do that. I multi task several emails/projects at a time using tabs. The grouping of messages does not help me at all. I would assume the same for many, many other users as I can't be the only one who depended on tabs to multi task.
The tabs on the email were the most valuable feature you had and now they are gone... Do I care about changing the backgrounds and colors? Not really, it is a feature that does not bring value.
I really miss Tabs and find this new interface to be SO clumsy. I also have a gmail account, but I've stuck with Yahoo because I appreciated the tabbed interface... might switch entirely over to gmail now.
Please, can you bring the old design back?! The tabs were great. I was trying to get used to the new design for a few weeks now, but I feel it is the worst design ever. It took me a while to get used to the previous design, but after I did, it was absolutely great! I was using yahoo for many, many years but this latest design is a big set back for me.
Put back old format of Yahoo mail. What happened to the tabs of all open email? Only 1 at a time now??!
go BACK to the TABBED VERSION PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your reply to the person asking for the tabs back (below) makes assumptions that YOU know what an individual wants to look at when working with their emails. Well, you DON'T know what I want to look at. Your new grouping format does not work for me at all. It makes assumptions that don't match at all what I want to be working with. PLEASE put the tabs back in place. PLEASE. I'm begging you.
"Our goal with the new Mail is to solve for multi-tasking without the need for permanent tabs. We group messages together so you have fewer reasons to switch between messages. We added quick reply at the bottom of messages, so you don’t have to open a separate compose window when you want to reply to a message. We added recent searches, so you can bounce back & forth between search and other tasks. And after you click on a message in search, we added the ability to jump back to your search results. "
I need the feature that was removed of being able to keep open multiple emails in tabs so that I can quickly copy and paste from one to another along with opening the email to remember to read it before the day is done and it doesn't get lost in my emails. PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ "Bring Back Opening Multiple Emails in Tabs!"
Please restore the open email tabs in Yahoo mail. This feature allowed for extremely convenient mail management.
BRING BACK MULTIPLE TABS - MULTIPLE EMAIL VIEWING/CREATION. I'D BE GLAD TO PAY TO HAVE THIS BACK. NEW LAYOUT is NOT INTUITIVE or PRODUCTIVE. ESP FOR BUSINESS. I DO NOT enjoy using Yahoo email anymore. Mad and sad.
This new version, Is not that usefull and not clear view.
I prefer to have tabs with actions you are working on, like a searchTAB and SENT or mail, or composed TAB.
Please bring back tabs. Also, bring back "Unread Mail".
I don't really want my Yahoo Mail to behave just like Gmail. Can we please have an option to select Yahoo Classic Mail?
Yahoo Mail is also very buggy lately.
Best, Tony Wolf
I felt that last update with the aweful background colors was bad enough!
I concur with others, bring back the tabs and what's with the disappearing mail in the middle of composing? I'm so ****** off with Yahoo email, but unfortunately I've used it for years and years.
new look is similar to google email, and that's not a good thing at all.
i liked the way yahoo mail was before where there were tabs up at the top that had other open emails that i could access when i wanted to go back to them, that's gone now.
please don't try to look like google mail. yahoo mail was better before this.
Please put tabs back on, I liked the old way, I could be editing or viewing several emails at the same time.
How do I get back the tabs in my email.
I've toughed it out now for the time since the new release in the hopes that I'd adapt and adjust, but it's just not happening.
I don't want things grouped, it's not easier - bring back tabs! This new version runs slower, it's not as easy to use, the interface is too cartoonish, the tabs function appears to be gone and when I delete an email after I've read it I don't get returned to my inbox
This new version is a HUGE step back from what it replaced. :(
I want the old layout back - where there are tabs on the top of the yahoo mail so I can have few mail and compose mails open at the same time and am able to switch between tabs. New layout is stupid and hard to navigate.
Where the heck are the multiple email tabs???
I hate this new version. Aweful design, ugly&non practicle! we didnt have choice about this change! BRING THE TABS BACK at least!
Please switch me back to to tabbed version of yahoo mail. The new version is very frustrating. Your new yahoo front end is not user friendly, not constructive, not productive and is inefficient.
DO NOT FORCE YOUR CHANGES ON USERS. Users should have option which version they want.
Opening multiple emails with different tabs
Make it possible to have more than one tab open in the inbox so I can see more than one email at the same time. I want to be able to read a previous (perhaps unrelated) email, AND at the same time be writing a new one, possibly to someone new. I used to be able to do this, now I can't. Please make it possible to choose to return to the old system, and you will see who votes with their feet. I have just sent a reply and looked in "Sent" to find it does not appear, yet it is shown in the "Inbox". I can see no advantages of this new system, only confusion. I may return to Hotmail if I cannot get round how the new system organises things. Provide feedback to this feedback to show that someone is listening please.
Bring back email tabs for multiple open emails. One visible email is not enough. The open search function email/open pane was nice.
I want to keep a particular email open, which I could do with tabs, but not with "new & improved" yahoo mail
I've been using Yahoo! mail since 2001. I'm a mail Plus user. Through all these years my mail changed many times. This change is definitely the worst one You did. The previous one was the very best You've ever had. That's a pity we could use it for so short period of time. What I'm missing the most and what I found the biggest step ahead was a possibility of opening messages in tabs. We could work with many messages and a folder at one time. Now I can't copy and paste or check something so fast as I did any more ;-(. Please give us our tabs back. All other things are just a matter of getting used to new menu, but no more tabs was a HUGE step back. Conversations are for me useless thing. They are good as far as someone doesn't receive to many e-mails. I switched conversations off cause I was loosing control over new, unread messages.
What were you thinking? You took away TWO of the best features of the old email, which I really didn't think anyone should have to tell you were MUST-HAVES! First and foremost was the ability to have more than one email open at once and still be able to access the inbox or another folder, hence the use of tabs. Second was the simple ability to hit the up or down arrow to move to the next message in the list -- who the heck thought it would be a good idea to make us go back to the inbox or other folder to click on each email so we could read it? Sheesh! This is just ridiculous! Those are BASIC email features in ANY email program, for Pete's sake! Please bring them back. Tabs to have multiple emails open, and the up & down arrows so we can thumb through the emails in a folder without going back to the folder each time and clicking on each email to bring it up on screen. Dang, people...considering the amount of p*n*s enlargement spam that goes out in my name due to previous hacking that was allowed into Yahoo's contact lists, and now this form of "improvement" in your interface, I really have to wonder what kind of geniuses are running Yahoo. It really might not be worth putting up with all the ads & garbage you throw my way anymore...
please bring back tabs
Hate the new mail format with all the numberings, that's why I dropped gmail. I sent out numerous requests to the same email server for different users and I dread opening the responses. How many clicks do I need to read all the mail and how do I keep track of which user responded. Really annoying. The old tab function was great.
Also, what happened to the select all button for each page? Now I have to manually delete my mail and I am getting fed up.
This is Yahoo Mail that we love and not Gmail. If Marissa likes Gmail so much, she can continue using Gmail but leave the usability and layout of Yahoo mail in tact. Don't care much for all the bells and whistles functions, but don't mess with the basic mail that we all love for years.
Bring tabs back - what were you thinking!
Thankfully I found a way to get around the email grouping which was set as the default by someone at Yahoo who has no idea how people use yahoo email.
Let MM know that the software developers should leave some things well enough alone.
This email upgrade fiasco reminds me of the new CEO at JC Penny and changes he made to eliminate discounting, and we know how that turned out.
I hate the conversations! All of my messages are getting lost! BRING BACK TABS! This totally sucks!!!!
This new version of yahoo mail is a piece of cr_p! I´ve been a yahoo user since it began and loved the easy and efficient way to handle mail, use multiple tabs, etc. Shame on the "wizards" (jackasses, idiots, morons, brainless) who came up with this nerve-wracking version and who plan to attract more users from other email providers with this dysfunctional version. You r trying to convert yahoo like gmail then better to work on gmail
Please bring the previous version back. I mostly need to see and work within the several tabs at the same time and this new version is the worst thing I could ever faced with while working, it's not possible to go to another page before closing the one you are working in. Please help me by bringing it back. I do appreciate your kind consideration.
please bring back page navigation and tabs, since we are unable to view multiple emails in the same page.
And when i click on reply or reply we are not getting the existing email address.
pathetic change. no multiple tab . please bring back previous format
bring back tabs
Pls bring back the tabs, also, cannot view the emails without clicking on them. Please restore.
Find a way to bring tabs back in the new format so I can multitask!
Bring back the open tabs so you can work on multiple emails at one time, ones I move to a different email I lose the one I'm working on. I usually have several tabs open at one time when I am doing research.
For years, I was able to see tabs at top and keep multiple emails open. I liked this. I notice it's gone now since I selected a graphic background. How can I get that feature back again?
Very bad interface .. na tabs left to work with . was very nice .. could open several mails at once .. and copy / paste . This interface is very slow ... almost no responce . no good !
BRING BACK YAHOO MAIL TABS!
We want multiple tabs open which we used to have in earlier interface....in term of design implementation it is one of the biggest blunder
Bring back version of my old mail, whatever it is called, classic or something else. I want to open different mails in each tabs. I hate this new mail version. The new version is a big disaster for me. With Classic, I can open multiple emails and Compose windows simultaeneously. Users could also easily work with the open emails with or without, copy from them and paste content into multiple Compose windows. That was a great feature. Why did Yahoo destroy this?
PLEASE restore Yahoo Classic. It had its problems, but the new version has absolutely no benefits.
I think its because of theme selection.
i really liked the way was before navigating on tabs...now i have to work on an single email and I cant jump to another one.....now this looks like hotmail!!!
The new version of Mail is extremely difficult and confusing. Where are the tabs so I can have more than 1 email open? I can't forward as easily, it looks like Gmail that I hate!!! Bring back old version!!!!
not sure why you would remove the TABS feature, but it really decreased productivity considerably.
please add back that function immediately.
I need the tabs back where you could switch between the inbox and the new emails you were writing without having to save it on drafts. They were like maximized open windows. why would u remove them?
I don't like that I cant see tabs for several open emails at once.
The very reason I stayed with Yahoo instead of going to gmail is because yahoo mail used to allow multiple emails to be opened at the same time. This is a very convenient feature. Now I see, by trying to copy gmail, you have removed this feature. Now I can only edit one email at the time, I cannot even look at another email easily while working on one.
This new version of Yahoo! Mail is going completely backwards from your prior version when it comes to functionality, user-friendliness, and overall navigation. Apart from not being able to save drafts anymore and utilizing tabs to have multiple messages open for toggling back and forth between emails, this new version is constantly crashing on me and I have to close out the browser and restart. I understand the need at times to try to be innovative and different, but why fix something that obviously many users on this feedback forum are saying not to. If anything, you should have kept all the prior features of the prior system and just embellished them; not get rid of them all together for more aesthetically pleasing themes and features such as batching conversations that are not really as important as what you removed.
It was so nice to go back and fourth between messages if you were copy & pasting things.. now it is a total nightmare.
Bring back multiple email tabs. You have made email unusable except for skimming. You loose all input if you want to copy and paste between emails. Fix what you broke.
Allow easy switching between individual email and threaded email viewing.
Please bring back tabs. That made a huge usability difference. I was happy with Yahoo mail and now I am not.
Bring back to the tabs - so you can have multiple emails open at once. THe new one has glitches that need to be worked out - just will take time to getting used to. but I miss the tabs.
need yahoo tabs back please
Missing Tab Facility Very Much. This has become like grade 2 gmail. Previous tab facility was great. This mail has lot of problem.
I have been using yahoomail for more than 13 years. I want tabs back as I can see multiple mails at the same time. It also allows me to open multiple mail from various folders.
I tend to have more than one email open at once especially if going between a couple from different people about same topic, or wanting to reply later. Now I have to save the email reply, go and find the other email again, and then return to the draft. It is time consuming and frustrating. BRING BACK THE TABS
I really need to have those tabs back, as they were REALLY helpful as I need to send out several emails to separate people and also view multiple emails at a time. TABS gave me that option and now it is very sad to have none. it makes emailing MUCH less functional for me
I appreciate the new features of yahoo mail, but the open multiple tab feature was a really great one which been removed in the new mail. I see there are people already mentioned about it in the feedback. It's very handle to open mails in tabs and edit another mail in another tab. One great feature I love yahoo mail rather than hotmail or Gmail is this feature.
The new YAHOO MAIL is really giving me problems. I want my tabs back so I can work multiple emails without having to save drafts. I want the prompts back for email addresses so I'm not going to load and reload multiple screens just to get an email address. I want to be able to view more than a dozen emails (in bold type) at a time. Why did you change something perfectly fine for a computer? You should have settings for traditional email, mobile email and then your new sucky email that wants to be a flashy gmail piece of garbage.
please go back to the sent folder including only emails sent by ME. if not, it is exactly the same as your new INBOX.... it is now a stack of emails with the same subject . If there are 20 emails in that stack and I only sent 2 of them, I must now scroll through the stack to find what I wrote. Very bad and very frustrating
When I try to hit reply it does nothing. I would like to reply to my emails!
Please get back simultaneous emails through tabs; this set Yahoo email apart from other providers making it very very practical.
Now this only looks like gmail which I have avoided for 5 years because it didn't have that feature.
Bring it back please!
Tabs were the function which made yahoo mail better than gmail or hotmail. Who thought it would be a good idea to get rid of those? Gees!
Tabs were the best feature of Yahoo Mail. Not being able to cross reference other emails, search, etc while composing an email is VERY limiting.
I've been using yahoo email since 97, after there are many emails providers are there such as hotmail, gmail etc.. but I've never think to switch my email. The main unique feature is Tabs.
If you removed the Tab feature then what is the point of staying with Yahoo. I'm thinking to switch to gmail. I don't know what is the main reason removing Tabs feature.
I hope you guys will bring the Tabs feature back.
The fact that there are no longer tabs makes it ridiculously difficult to use your mail program to do simple things. Maybe you were trying to emulate gmail, but frankly gmail is now more usable than my yahoo account. Do the people who designed the new interface actually use yahoo mail?
Its been nearly a week now & you haven't brought back the tabs. I turned off conversations... but there are bugs.. deleting more than 6 emails at once fails, often the folder goes blank & needs reloading. & I don't even get the first line of the email which was the one good thing this release achieved. I Want Tabs & reliability.... I will have to leave yahoo unless things improve
New Yahoo sucks
I want my multiple email feature back! Please!
I don't like the new preview pane that yahoo mail has switched to and quite liked using tabs to open multiple emails at the same time. How can I switch back to the tab version or at least get that functionality with the new version?
With new design.I am not able to open emails in parallel tabs.
I find it extremely difficult to navigate within mail box without those tabs as it used to have in previous version. Those tabs really made the life easy as you could go back to inbox(or any other folder) with the mail(s) from any folder opened in front of you. That was so good as you could have multiple mails opened in front of you and it was really easy to refer one thing or the other within those mails(could also cut copy paste easily from different mails to compose new one). This new yahoomail is not that good at all in that aspect. I am not liking it. I didn't opt for this new yahoomail at all. Any ideas to get that previous version back(not the classic version)???
Put the "send" button back on top of the page..........I'm so fed up with this "new" Yahoo format!
Also, what happened to the tabs at the top, allowing multiple e-mails to be open at once?
Requesting all users in favour of having the TABS back, to support/vote for this post please.
Yahoo! claims to engage with their userbase, then how can Yahoo Mail! ignore approx 40000 users, all asking, rather pleading to bring back the TABS feature. Its time Yahoo to 'Put Money where Mouth is' and listen to their users and reintroduce the TABS feature.
Mail used to have tabs so you could open and review more than one email at a time and flip between them. It seems this feature was taken away. Also the way the mail is linked together sometimes is confusing. prefered the old way.
Bring back simple system by which multiple emails could be kept open at the same time, with tabs along the top. Why on earth have you eliminated this? It is a major downgrade of the system.
Why is multiple email tabs not available !!!
Bring it back ASAP.
This new mail sucks. Why do i have to go along with it. Give option of still using the one I'M USED TO! Plus you took away the tabs and made everything confusing. This thing sucks!!! Go back to the old way.
if there were ever an application where tabs were useful, your email is it! bring them back please!!!!
I have to go back to inbox to open a new e-mail. You can't view multiple e-mails at once. Please bring back e-mail tabs!
Can no longer keep multiple emails open ... not good. Sent and received emails are now combined ... not good. Very unhappy with this after nearly 20 years ... will have to check other options if you don't fix this. Must agree with others ... the old version was much better and easier to use.
Thanks for being creative, but Yahoo was pretty good already. I could have multiple emails opened and go back and forth using tabs on top as I edited the various emails. Only thing that would be better is the tabs and multiple emails being able to be opened into there unique windows.
Sort by receive and sent date and inbox.
If you were to bring back Yahoo Mail to where it was before this change in October....I would be fine.
A few days ago I wrote in about how awesome the new Yahoo Mail was - well, I just discovered that Contacts and searches no longer open in a separate tab!! This was THE biggest feature that made Yahoo Mail better than Gmail since you were able to multi-task while writing an email. Now you can only do one thing at a time, which I found so frustrating in Gmail, and was the reason why I kept Yahoo as my primary email. Please bring Tabs back!!
I agree with the other user about the tabs. The tabs were great in that you could be composing an email, switch to your inbox without loosing the new message, then go back to composing, all without getting in or out of anything.
Kindly enable tabs in yahoo mail, the recent changes is not very appealing nor user friendly. Make is easy to use.
Please bring back the tabs on Yahoo Mail. I used to be able to keep multiple e-mail windows open at a time, and it's very frustrating not to be able to do that anymore. Also, it doesn't make sense not to be able to copy and paste e-mail addresses from one e-mail into another. When I tried to do that, the window collapsed. How can these issues be fixed? I'm very frustrated.
New yahoo mail sucks, no tabs, slow. Bring back Basic Mail.
I'm a big fan of tabs as it allows me to keep multiple emails open at the same time.
Is there any feature in this new Yahoo! Mail which allows me to keep multiple emails open at a time?
If yes, please guide me.
If no, there should be one...
The new format is so slow!!! And I hate that there are no more tabs! This format is the absolute worst!
I don't like the new mail, but at a minimum please bring back tabbed emails where I can easily go between several emails at once instead of having to go back to inbox each time to switch emails.
Bring back ability to work multiple emails via tabs... And introduce a print button while you're at it. Who approved this ****?
I HATE THIS new format! Hate the dark blue colour which makes the email difficult to use. I WANT THE TABS BACK!!!
REALLY HATE NEW FORMAT!!! PLEASE BRING BACK OLD FORMAT OTHERWISE YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE A LOT OF CUSTOMERS!
PLEASE bring the tabs back. I want to be able to have multiple emails open at the same time.
Please, please bring back Tabs or allow Power users to use the old version that allowed for multiple tabs open at once. This is a major issue that determines the usability of the product.
This newest style sucks and needs to be restored back or fixed with tabs. Otherwise i will leave yahoo, permanently! New is not always better and this is the proof!
There used to be boxes I could check for multiple emails then click mark as unread. The boxes are now gone and that is unacceptable. I get hundreds of emails a day and need to be able to quickly mark them as read and move on to the ones that matter. BRING THIS BACK!
How am I supposed to scroll between two emails (that aren't on the same thread) that I am using at the same time, like we did when there where tabs? Often times I have subject headings the same for clients, but I don't want their emails grouped together. Also, some times I am trying to respond back to one person, but in a thread of many respondents it becomes confusing. I am not some corporate office where every one needs to see evey response. The new design makes it all too easy to accidentally respond back to the wrong person in a thread. I never had to worry about that in the old design. I will probably be moving as many people to a gmail account as possible, even though I don't care for gmail. I do find it less cluttered and confusing. What a shame. I've been with yahoo for more than12 years, but this is making me thinking of finally leaving.
Yahoo has DOWNgraded for some reason.
No more tabs which means it has reverted to a one mail at a time view as 5 years ago.
More annoying still is the fact that it is 10 times SLOWER and sometimes when I go back to my Inbox the page is simply BLANK.
This is a retrograde step for email. Please restore the previous version.
Where are the tabs in the new version of Yahoo? This feature allowed multitasking so that you could be composing an email in one tab and do a search in another tab of compose multiple emails at the same time. Now if I try to search while composing, my only option is to save the email as a draft and then reopen it. Am i missing something, or did yahoo go backwards in the the feature set?
What happened to my tabs???? New versions are supposed to get better not worse. Give me the old back.
And now I can't make an attachment without deleting an add first or pay 5 dollars??? No way. I dont care if u have adds but if it gets in the way of productivity, I want no part of it. Fix this in the next 7 days or me and my employees will be leaving yahoo.
Not to mention a little facebook new yahoo mail hate will circulate.
Looking around I see others are not happy as well.
Figured you would poll this before you try it.
I did not like this new look of Yahoo Mail. It is not user friendly and I missed Tabbed window option. Also missed sorting Subject wise. Please switch back it to older version.
No Tabs, Scrolling not working, whole experience just gone DOWNHILL, it really is terrible. Bring back Tabs.
I can't see forward, reply etc, menu on emails! Please fix ASAP! Also I prefered the tabbed messages so I could see emails I have open and open or search for emails in my inbox.
The muliple tabs feature which allowed me to have more than one email open at a time was one that I used frequently. Where has it gone? If it 'aint broke don't fix it!!
Fix it or lose customers ....
Bring back multiple email tabs. Why has this gone??? I hate the new format.
I HATE the updated Yahoo mail; you got rid of the tabs, and now the inbox won't load after I close an email- plus the page has trouble loading in general now, I have to refresh constantly because it keeps freezing. Why did you change it?! It was fine already the way it was. In fact, I recently joined Yahoo mail, and I chose Yahoo for the simple design, tab features, and its speedy refresh. But now all of that is gone! It makes me want to get another email and delete this account...
You can't read one email and be drafting another at the same time. What happened to the tabs that allowed you to move back and forth. Please add that back
Please bring back for me the tabs. I so detest the collapsed new email views. I dont care if millions prefer the new window display, I find the tab view too convenient. This new design is a terrible no-brainer.
I HATE HATE HATE the newest version of mail. I miss being able to have multiple tabs; the new one is hard to read; it is ugly to look at; it hurts my eyes to read it. Thinking of changing providers if it isn't corrected asap!
I miss tabbed messages. It's great to be able to have multiple messages open, especially when I need to copy content from one to the other or to refer to information before writing. The same for the search; if I'm searching for a particular message, it's likely because I need the information for another. Having them open in tabs really makes organizing messages easier and helps Yahoo stand out from other popular services.
very poor design. revert back to the old one. Bring back tabs. Do you people do any survey before releasing anything?. No wonder competitors have left you behind.
please go back to the old yahoo. I miss tabs and print function. I am very unhappy that you changed without consultation. I am considering giving up yahoo after twelve years.
With the old mail interface, you were able to have more than one email message open at the same time. This allowed for easy referencing. The new mail interface does not make it possible to do such multi-tasking. It would be great to have the tabs feature available in the new interface so that you can click back and forth between multiple email messages.
The email tabs was one of the best ideas that Yahoo! ever used in your email and made you stand head and shoulders above the other options out there! Eliminating the tabs and making your email look exactly like Google's Gmail was a really bad decision. The tabs are easy to use and convenient. If I wanted email that looked like Gmail, I would use my Gmail account (that my phone made me sign up for). I used to prefer everything about Yahoo, especially the ability to see multiple emails open and flip between tabs. Now this email looks like Gmail, which isn't user friendly, convenient, or visually pleasing. Bring back the tabs and revert to a less Google-looking email!!
The new format is incredibly hard on the eyes, regardless of which theme you chose, partly because all the info is in one box. I use the basic format so I can scroll down just looking at senders or subject headings. Tabs were the best thing about Yahoo and should be returned immediately!!! Also I use to start typing a contact, and get a list of possible contacts pop up to choose from, now I have to go into the whole contact list and scroll through to try and find who I'm looking for. Why you have messed with what was such a good program, we will never know!!!! Obviously NO-ONE loves it. This is the worst PR stunt I have EVER seen.
I dont like the idea of removing tabs. Can i understand what was the logic behind it. It was really handy when searching emails
my email was upgraded and now I don't have the multiple tabs to be able to switch back and forth between email.
don't care much for the gmail style condensing of e-mail conversation. I want to be able to forward an individual email and not the the whole conversation string.
I HAVE, HAVE, HAVE to have multiple tabs to quickly switch from one open e-mail to another. I cannot have just one open at a time.
Bring back the TABS!!!
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!! Listen to what basically everyone is saying and quit screwing around with the format. Give us our tabbed e-mail back!! AND LEAVE IT THAT WAY!!!!!!!!
You used to be able to have tabs for opened messages, allowing for easy reference and movement between messages. BRING BACK!
I need tabs back for interface
The previous set up in Yahoo allowed me to have tabs open with multiple emails open at once making flicking between them very easy. With this new layout that does not seem to be possible. Is there a trick that I'm missing that would allow me to view multiple emails at once with the new layout? If not, please add a way to do this asap!!
Please bring back the tabs / multiple emails open at once. This is a feature I rely on heavily. I am looking for an alternative email service for the first time in over 10 years.
I want the old look back and the tabs. It's too hard to navigate accurately
Really dislike new mail interface. Its clumsy and very unituitive and why take away tabs when this one of the older versions best features.
If Yahoo is trying to wind down its email businees its succeeded - GMail for me from now on.
I need to have more than one email open at a time. It is extremely annoying to have to keep reopening each one and having to make multiple clicks to get there. Please put back the multiple tabs in mail.
Much like outlook, power users require having multiple emails open simultaneously to toggle between but not Yahoo mail has become Gmail. Without the classic features that have kept me a loyal yahoo email users for about 15 years, I struggle to find a reason to continue using this format. It is confusing, cluttered and counterproductive.
This new yahoo mail is not good, the old yahoo mail was wonderful with tabs and the limited no's mails to be show in inbox was wonderful, but in the previous mail the mails is used to load continously and it would take time to load the inbox and would slow down the usage of mail,
hope yahoo would bring back the old yahoo mail with tabs and limited mails to load in the inbox as we had settings . love to see the old yahoo mail with tabs soon rather than this.
opening new mails in new tabs was a good idea because i can click one or two mail and check my Inbox until those mails completely load and do things like marking spam mails and deleting unwanted mails from my Inbox, since they have removed and now i have to spend much more time to deal with these things my inbox is much screwed place now
Removing the ability to open mulitple emails at one time has really impaired the useability of Yahoo mail. I'm not overly concerned if the emails open as tabs or as new windows (although tabs would be preferable) so long as it's possible to keep several emails open at one time. Please allow us to open multiple emails at once again - this is an ESSENTIAL capability of a mail provider.
GET YOUR TABS AND OLD YAHOO BACK!!!
Go to settings (cogwheel) and click on viewing e mail. Click on "basic". When the basic version appears, use your browser to go back and the user-friendly yahoo with tabs, print, sort, save drafts, etc will come up.
TABS for Messages was what make Yahoo my preferred mail... it was easy to keep several messages open at once, search and compare, etc. I know Melissa came from google, but but for God's grace.... Yahoo doesnt have to become a pathetic copy of google, and please not my yahoo mail
I used to work with multiple open emails at a time when there were tabs. Now i don't know how to do that. If I'm drafting an email and I want to jump out of it to check info in another email, then go back to the email I'm drafting I need to save it as a draft first. But there's no button to save as draft. I have to hit the X and then tell it to save, then go back to reopen it from the drafts folder. Way too many steps.
Bring back tabs for e-mail
What's up with you peoples. Everytime you change yahoo mail you take away features that make you different from everyone else. Multiple Tabs made Outlook Desktop version un-required for email use. Without the multiple tabs yo become something less than gmail since Google has so many other reason to draw us to their complete service.
With al the other services that Google offered I refused to Jump ship to Gmail because yahoo mail offered a better service for home and Business use. I will be cancelling my paid account if there is no multiple tabs.
where are tabs for email???????????????????
where are tabs for email???????????????????
where are tabs for email???????????????????
Following on from my email of yesterday regarding the 'me' in the sender column, the no 'save and draft', the adding of a new sent email to the top of an earlier email in the inbox....I would also add that I very much miss the open email tabs at top of page - where I can jump between emails or keep an important one or two open for a later date. I used to search for important emails from the past and keep them open for reference purposes. Bring back the above, plus the open email tabs!!!
WHY has this been removed? WHY has so much been changed without consulting the users?
can we have the tabs back? it is much easier and the overview/layout was definitely much better the old one
In previous version of Yahoo Mail, we could have multiple tabs of emails open at the top. Now they are gone. I like to be able to have one draft message and open either an email folder or another draft at the same time. This version won't allow me to do that! Or, at least, I have found no way to accomplish that. But why should I have to work or search for something that seems self-evident? I may not WANT to send an email or "save" it as a draft when I choose to work on another draft email.
In the previous version, with a click of the mouse, I could go back and forth between open draft emails (perhaps copy and paste between them). This version (apparently) does not allow the user to do that.
Bring back the TABS at the top so we can have simultaneous open draft emails and/or other email folders!
The old version had Mail Tabs so that you could go from a draft, to an open, to a recent search, etc... Please bring that back!!!
I am OUTRAGED! I chose Yahoo over Google or Hotmail because there was a multi-tab feature to see manage many emails at the same time. I still have it on another professional yahoo account but, which I will never switch to this new version. And it seems there is no way out of this new version now with my other email account? I can't believe Yahoo didn't think at least letting this multi-tap feature as an on/off option.
I like the old version, when you start composing a new e-mail in a new tab, and you can switch between the tabs of a few e-mails opened at the same time.
Now, if I start composing new e-mail, and I need to copy something from another e-mail I'm loosing newly started e-mail, which is really frustrating. Autosaving doesn't pick up new e-mails, draft folder also
Please bring back the tabs function in Yahoo Mail, in which users could have multiple e-mail messages open at once. It made life more productive. Imagine what browsing the web would be like if the browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer) got rid of the ability to view multiple pages at once in different tabs? That's how browsing was like in the 1990s. I for one don't want to go back, and I don't want my e-mail to take a major step back, either. Please bring back tabs to Yahoo Mail.
This is the worst version of Yahoo mail I have ever used. Admit you screwed up and go back to how it was. I can't open e-mails in multiple tabs like I used to, I can't work on an e-mail and then search for another e-mail without having the e-mail I was just working on close...nothing about it is better, and everything about it is worse. I've been a premium Yahoo mail member for years, and have had the same e-mail address since 2004 because I like Yahoo mail...now I hate Yahoo mail.
I HATE this new e-mail change, worst thing you've done yet. My inbox looks like a blog of black text, you also got rid of tabs which was my main reason for liking yahoo mail. Not only that, when you got rid of tabs, it also deletes any in-progress e-mails if you have to check your inbox because they don't save quick enough as a draft and I can't find any button TO SAVE A DRAFT --- PLEASE FIX ASAP!!! THIS ISTERRRIIBBBBBLLLEEE!!!
PLEASE BRING BACK THE MULTITASKING MAIL TABS!!!!! Replying to emails has also become really confusing.
Please Change Yahoo Email to allow for multiple emails to be open at the same time on different tabs. I hate having to reopen an email to go back and forth between them. If this is not corrected i will be using a new email service. The old Yahoo Email allowed for multiple emails op0en why would Yahoo get rid of that feature?
What happened to the message tabs in Yahoo mail? I used to be able to go back and forth between messages in order to copy and paste email addresses, etc. I have also been having problems with the Yahoo mail app for Android ever since the recent upgrade too. Is there are plan for a re-release to fix bugs? Thank you.
Let me use the tabs in my browser again. The old yahoo let me use browser tabs and more than one browser window. It really sucked when I had to use the ****** yahoo built in tabs instead but you guys made it much worse when you took those away.
Where is the mail tabs ?
I can't believe this function is missing.
The tabs made emailing and gathering information to put emails together more efficient.
where is the "search mail" button gone??/ Was a really useful feature. Hate this new layout-where have tabs gone too-this is a step backwards...will be changing my email address-can't function with this
please stop trying to copy microsoft outlook online which is horrible. I've used yahoo mail for years and liked how it worked with the tabs for email and calendar.
I would like to still have tabbed emails so I can refer to one email while composing another.
Please bring back multiple tabs with the capability to have multiple open emails open simultaneously. Often I will be going back and forth between multiple emails assimilating pertinent information while drafting a new email.
Put the email with the tabs back i don't like the mail box at all who needs those lame themes
There are so many things I dislike!!!
The main thing I want is for you to bring back the tabs, not only for viewing the emails but also for the inbox, contacts and calendar.
You have gone back to the early look emails when Yahoo Mail first began instead of moving forward!!
WHAT THE **** ARE YOU DOING... AND WHO THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE GOOD OR USEFUL OR HELPFUL???? ARE YOU ALL REALLY SO STUPID????
Having TABS is the ONLY thing that makes Yahoo better than Gmail, IF I wanted to use Gmail I would... I now have 2 Yahoo accounts but will CANCEL them both if you do not IMMEDIATELY BRING BACK TABS. It is a total waste of time and energy to be forced to go back and forth and not be able to have emails up in tabs for easy and quick access... I HATE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!!!! THIS IS HORRIBLE.
BRING BACK TABS BRING BACK TABS... AND AGAIN - BRING BACK TABS
Bring back Multiple mail windows or restore old version..
I really need to be able to see and access the different tabs when I am composing and/or looking at other e-mails. I will probably just start forwarding all my e-mails to another source if you cannot make this feature possible again for me. I REALLY miss it. I used it every day before it was taken away. I teach at two universities, and like I said, I used it every day in dealing with my students.
Tabs ... you know, the one you had before. What about actually asking people before DUMPING a feature?
Why did you change to a new version? I loved the last version of Yahoo! Mail, with its tabs. Now you've copied Microsoft's useless version of Hotmail/Live/Outlook with its "conversations."
I switched to the basic version, but it no longer does tabs. Please bring back the tabs!
The new interface stinks. Tabs are gone. New mail is not in bold type. I use folders a lot to filter my mail and now I cannot see if there is new mail in my folders unless I click on the Folder button. Font is hard to read. Having the Send button on Compose at the bottom of the screen is opposite of the buttons on every other screen.
Overall grade: F
Bring back the old interface!
I want the old tabs back, hate new yahoo mail, can not search the old mail.
Need to be able to switch between the open folder and the opened emails by switching between tabs. This is particularly useful when searching for past saved emails. Used to be able to have the search outcome on one tab (with list of emails) and open selected emails in separate tabs to confirm the information that you were after.
Angry and very disappointed customer commented · Oct 13, 2013
I'm not enjoying it at all!!!!!*=(( broken heart*X( angry
Where is the good old function to have few open e-mails and folders (for expl search folders) and to switch from one to another????
How can I save as a draft new mail in order not to loose it???
We all want tabs back!!!!!
TABS TABS TABS
TABS TABS TABS
TABS TABS TABS
Please bring back the tabs so we can have multiple messages open at once. This new format of only having a single message open at any one time is counter-productive and not very conduscive for work.
please bring back Tabs or allow Power users to use the old version that allowed for multiple tabs open at once. This is a major issue that determines the usability of the product.
Hi All, Please I urge to bring Tab back. Also I would like that all folders appear on the left as the previous format. Please do needful. Thanks
PLEASE BRING TABS BACK - Tabs were a very useful tool to have so as to (a) be able to search through multiple emails & not loose your place and (b) work on multiple jobs/task at the same time.
I think there were needed updates, but removing tab function should not be one of them. Trying to collect/copy addresses of people (who I don't necessarily need in my contact library) from 7 separate emails so I can send in a new email.... it seems really silly, but the only way i could think to accomplish this was to use notepad/word as a transfer tool and I ended up quitting it b/c it was taking too long to do (especially when new email screen acted stupid when i began trying to paste the addresses)! with using tabs in the old version, I could simply toggle b/t received emails to composition emails. YOU'RE GOING THE WRONG DIRECTION IF I CAN NOW ONLY ACCESS ONE EMAIL AT A TIME! please bring back tabs or tell me how this new version can bring up more than one email at a time. Thanks!
Bring back the tabs! This new layout doesn't even work half the time. I may have to switch to Gmail. The old layout was perfect, and this new one is a disaster.
Please bring back the open email tabs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please bring back the email tabs so I can go back and forth between emails, especially ones from some time back.
Before this latest change, I was able to do a Search, and view the results either with Snippits or without. With the Snippits I was able to see more information and could tell very quickly which email I needed to access. Now, there is no option for Snippits under Search results, and the little bit of info that shows up in the subject line isn't enough to tell which email is the appropriate one. I have to open each one to find the one I need. I tried selecting Snippits in Settings, but it won't allow me to select it. At least, now I am able to de-select "Enable Conversations" so I can once again see each incoming email separately.
If you are bent on keeping this latest round of changes, please at least give us back some of the things you took away....such as Snippets in the Search results and THE TABS!
Bring back tabs. Simple as that. The right side preview pane makes the format look compressed and cluttered. For bigger monitor sizes, that MAY be acceptable, but as someone who does tech support for customers emails, this format has had a LOT of criticism, and not the good kind. i myself don't mind the color scheme and theme changes, BUT taking away the tabs really slows down my productivity within my email since i get quite a bit of mail a day and usually can't check it until the weekends.
Please please please bring back the old Yahoo mail and Tabs - I along with many other people hate the new Yahoo! Why you had to copy Gmail on a bad idea I don't know. If you don't change back I'll be moving somewhere else even though I've been with Yahoo for many many years!!
What a waste of time - with the new mail contacts must be entered manually to send or forward mail....PLEASE PUT THE CONTACT TAB BACK ON THE MAIL PAGe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please bring back the tabs! I used to love yahoo mail but not it is awful and as bad as hotmail or gmail. Does anyone know a better email provider? I understand the need for changes but this one was a really bad one. You will discourage a lot of your existing customers. We should be able at least to choose between old and new look!
JUST PLAIN TERRIBLE; TABS ARE GONE CAN'T FIND THE PAGE I BEEN WRITING - ABSOLUTE RUBBISH - THE DESIGNER SHOULD BE FIRED - WHY CHANGE SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN FUNCTIONING - EVERY UPDATE SO FAR HAS BEEN USER UN FRIENDLYER - YAHOO USED TO BE THE BEST BUT IT IS GETTING WORST WITH EVERY UPDATE::::SHAME ON YOU FOLKS - WONDERING WHO COULD HAVE COME UP WITH THIS IDEA, AND PROBABLY DID NOT TEST IT THEMSELVES - AND THE EMAILS I HAVE BEEN SAVING HAS BEEN DELETED WITHOUT NOTICE - IF YOU ARE PLANING TO DELETE ONES MAILS MAKE IT PUBLIC, TIMELY
Been with Yahoo 20 years!. I pay for Yahoo plus! AND NOW I CANNOT FIND THE MULTIPLE TABS! That´s why I LOVE Yahoo! or LOVED... Will definitely change to antoher mail if you keep it like this. And There is no way to contact COSTUMER CARE!
-New emails aren't showing up in Bold, which is so, so stupid.
-No tabs at the top?!?!?!?!? Makes writing several emails at once IMPOSSIBLE. Slow, tedious, annoying. BRING TABS BACK!!
-Themes make reading emails more difficult than it should be. KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID. Bright colors not conducive to reading emails.
-Folders not visible on the side. How does this make sense??
Worst version of email you've forced us to use. BRING BACK OLD FORMAT!
I liked that i could leave an email or a draft open and come back to it after doing other things in email. It doesn't have to be tabs, but that's a functionality I miss. I also have a hard time finding the most recent email in the thread sometimes -- it seems to move to top or bottom without me asking it to.
I used to be able to have multiple emails open. Now I have to use Outlook again
We need to be able to have multiple emails open at a time. We also need to be able to be composing a message and search for information from other emails without having to save a draft and close the new message. The current version has made it impossible to multitask. Please restore the tabs feature for our emails!!
Everyone loves Yahoo because is the only one that uses the TABS feature in the more useful and practical way.
The idea of composing a message and jump over to your inbox to do something else IS GENIUS !!
Is very useful to have 4 or 5 TABS open all at once to reference!!
SO PLEASE BRING THE TABS FEATURE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!! THANK YOU!
I absolutely hate that you've taken away tabs. They were the most useful part of Yahoo Mail! I hate conversations - if I wanted to use conversations I would use my Gmail account!!!! Conversations make it very difficult to sort through anything!!! Back to tabs - I hate that I now can't keep an email separated that has important info without accessing anything else. They were so useful for copying and pasting from other emails if you were trying to combine information, if you were doing research. Heck, even if you just wanted to have something readily available without having to not use any other aspect of your email! This new formatting is absolutely awful! I've been using Yahoo Mail for almost 15 years and I AM SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING LEAVING BECAUSE THIS EMAIL FORMAT IS SO HIDEOUS AND UNHELPFUL!!!!!!!!!
I am not sure why you changed the Mail app, but the Tabs are really necessary. please restore the tabs.
Bring back email TABS asap.. This email service will not work for me any long with out it.. Viewing one email at a time is so 90s!! WTF!!!
Hello, I'm, not sure why the yahoo mail was changed, it was perfectly fine before, but now the tabs for the open e-mails are missing???
Prior to this update we could view multiple emails at the same time. This is very useful when using information from several emails to create a separate document.
Please bring back this feature. It's sorely missed.
I hate that I don't have the tabs anymore, it made browsing, composing and searching for an old message, at the same time or whenever needed easy, not you have to do either one or another.
Another thing I strongly dislike is how a thread of messages is displayed in an open e-mail, past and new messages are mixed, they are not in the appropriate order and very short responses are not even possible to open. I can see short e-mails only in the preview of the Inbox list, if I open such messages, only the longer messages are displayed, the short response is missing! I truly hate this.. It looks very much like my Gmail inbox, which I don't use for this very reason :(
Replying and composing e-mails is horrible, plus I lose a lot of time scrolling up and down to search for the typing field, the oldest message, the most recent one, this is a mess, it does not make sense.
Bring back the email tabs. I am lost without the tabs. I usually have 5-10 emails open at the same time especially when I do copy/paste from email-1 to email-2.
TABS? Where did they go? I loved them! Please bring them back!
The tabs that allow you to open multiple emails at one time is missing, what a shame, this is a very important feature to most yahoo users, please add it back in.
I hate the new yahoo. Please give us the option to revert. Please also give us the open email tabs back.
When you took away the tabs you took away the one thing that truly separated yahoo from all other email services. Now I may as well move on to outlook.
View multiple email at same time in inbox or other folders.
Please incorporate tab browsing for mail. It becomes easy with tab to check to switch between 2 or 3 mails which is difficult in current theme
I love the latest UI..it looks very neat comparted old one..but i also liked the old way of opening e-mail in separate tabs i think you can still make the way of opening e-mails in tabs available as an optional feature (but even this with new themes only)..
We know that if i checked first email and also want to check second mail but i dont want to close my first mail so we need tab in mail option which was in previous yahoo mail that was good function but now this new yahoo mail is not easy to use even every function is in icons and every time click into tree. I am very upset to see this new yahoo mail option.
Bring the tabs back, where we could open numerous mails at one time. The newer version does not seem to be as user friendly. While improvement is good, it should incorporate the previous functions if those were advanced.
Similarly clicking on matching email address that appears in the address bar, won't put that address automatically there, until the whole email address is typed which is such a wastage of time and makes it more mistakes prone too.
Tabbed mail opening a must and its removed which is very very disappointing. It should be there for multiple workings on the mails.
I am a fan boy of yahoo email,
I am using yahoo mail from years,
One big advantage over other email services yahoo email holds is its fast and TABBED interface.
I usually want to open mails aside and read one by one rather than moving up and down or back and forth, its very comfortable to use.
Please consider this and update to use tabbed interface in yahoo email.
yahoo mail was better than google because of the tabbed messages. google mail is aweful in this respect, and it is further aggravating to have the nesting of messages ("conversations") making it extremely inconvenient to find messages. Now I have to use a pretty pathetic search feature to try to locate messages, where before I could easily glance through the first 25 or so messages and find what I need.
If you keep the google like interface, I might as well switch to google. Message printing works better. Google does not have tabs, but oh yes, neither does Yahoo anymore.
Please Bring Back Tabbed View of emails. The new Yahoo Mail is soo slow to response and adding a recipient is very troublesome
New yahoo mail is horrible - it keeps freezing up, not sending mail, I can't get rid of the ads on the right side, it's hard to use, and super annoying. I want the tabs back, I want to see my folders, I liked the previous way to add contacts and ccs to emails, forwarding attachments isn't working properly, this has been a major headache for many of your yahoo users from the looks of the feedback on this page......PLEASE GO BACK TO THE OLD VERSION! I haven't found a single feature on the new version that I like better than the old one so far.
Don't change email format without asking us first!
I can't view tabs of open emails and an email that is being composed. I want these tabs back. It was very useful when flipping back and forth between.
Bring back sms messaging.
Hi even though the new interface lacks clarity when it comes to noticing the read and unread emails, I can still deal with it. But I really wonder why you would remove the tabbed emails? Those were a GREAT feature, it made things so easy, I could open several emails at the same time and work.
Please, do bring back the tabbed emails. Its also one of the features that makes yahoo mail better than hotmail.
i wan new tab require on this mail.cause at one time am access only one mail.when am 2nd mail open that time previus mail is not going then next time reopen require.exactly i want require one time am check more than 3 mail which access easyly previous mail version.
New yahoo email great and awesome. But one more thing that you eliminate from new yahoo version that is multiple tabs email.e.g
when i am doing one email then i remember that i have another email for data copying then i back to go inbox and click on that email and copy text and paste on it where i am working.
Now in this new version multiple tabs opening facilities miss that is problematic for me.
Yahoo mail introduced the unique feature of opening mails in tabbed. It was a very convenient to use and it facilitated browsing through several mails much faster.
The new version of yahoo mail is not user friendly as the previous one was. I am not comfortable not having all my tabs open on the top so I can switch back and forth amongst them. The new Yahoo mail made work more inefficient and unproductive. Please, set tabs on top option in the new Yahoo mail version for free... Thank you
Yahoo please bring back the TABS. This is a MAJOR STEP BACKWARDS. I am a user since 1997. The TABS allowed multi-tasking within the mail interface... how do i now compose multiple messages simultaneously or bounce between multiple messages being read???? You can keep it pretty, just bring back the TABS.
This new look is not intuitive and I hate it, please bring back the tabs and make the inbox easy like it used to be.
I need my tabs back so I can switch between emails I am currently pondering.
I really need to be able to use open multiple tabs at once, How can I go back to the old version?
Where did the tabs go? Can I have the old view back? This version SUCKS!
please bring back tab abilities! it is very frustrating to not be able to have two email messages open!
i see i am also not the only one who wants this!
rubbish! Without tabs while typing an email I cannot check other inbox emails now! I am forced to switch email provider to be efficient. Bring back tabs!
I HATE THIS!! IT'S AWFUL!! Where are my tabs, icons, sorting, flexibility--you've messed up EVERYTHING!! Put the old one back!!!!
WILLING TO PAY FOR OLD VERSION YAHOO EMAIL SERVICE !!! Who at Yahoo came up with such a brilliant idea to delete the tabs?????
ALLOW YAHOO USERS TO GO BACK TO OLD EMAIL FORMAT
Why are you trying to be like gmail??? I HATE their format, and loved the old yahoo mail. There is a reason I don't use gmail... Tabs are easy to use. Following and looking for info in this conversational folder format does NOT work!
The best thing about the new Yahoo Mail was the ability to have several messages open in tabs and switch between them. You've taken this away? Why?
(Maybe this isn't the place to ask questions, but I can't find any means of contacting Yahoo anymore... Can you?)
Dear Sir or Madam,
What have you done to Yahoo Mail?! The new version is a huge mistake! With Classic, users could open multiple emails and Compose windows simultaeneously. Users could also easily work with the open emails without, copy from them and paste content into multiple Compose windows. That was a great feature. Why did Yahoo destroy this?
PLEASE restore Yahoo Classic. It had its problems, but the new version has absolutely no benefits.
Hey guys, I get it, I know you want to be progressive and do things and be competitive but the new interface that rudely interrupted my work flow last night is so horrible, I am seriously considering dropping my account.
The reason I like yahoo is because it had a reliable interface and I vastly preferred it to GMAIL. Now you are gmail but worse.
• Your fonts and type spacing are hurting my eyes.
• No more file tabs? C'mon guys, that was a brilliant idea, it was your one-up on google, why did you get rid of that?
• Interface is slow, clunky, inefficient and full of invasive ads (which I'll gladly tolerate if they didn't hinder performance)
• Researching and managing my email just got twice as hard and now I have to deal with the stupid sub menus that I couldn't stand with google only this user interface is less elegant, far less user-friendly.
BE YAHOO BE DIFFERENT, you just gave me gmail but worse.
The update sucks. Having no tabs sucks. Heck, all of it sucks. GO BACK! Gmail, here I come
Bring back tabs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You guys are freaking crazy to remove the tabs! Why do you think that most everyone preferred Yahoo to Gmail? TABS!
Bring back tabs!!!
I don't like the new format bring back the tabs
Bring back tabs. Bring back folders that are easy to get to and see from the main page. Don't be Facebook and force upgrades on users.
The new look of yahoo mail after 10/8 changes is truly bad and difficult to work with. Yahoo mail looks like gmail now. Working with tabs in the old look of yahoo mail was a great experience and I have missed it so much. I have been a user of yahoo mail for over 10 years and all the changes have been efficient and delightful so far BUT the latter is the worst I have ever experienced. Removing the tabs is the most false decisions you have made. For your information, I first disabled the conversation ability, but as difficult as it was working with the new look, I changed the look to basic and wish not to use the newest look of yahoo mail because I found it useless and annoying. Please bring the tabs back to yahoo mail so that your users appreciate your performance.
I want to be able to keep multiple emails open at once and click between them as i am working. Please bring back this feature of Yahoo mail, so that it is useful again.
This feature is one of the primary reasons I use Yahoo instead of gmail. It is very frustrating that is it gone!
Lack of tabs really reduces productivity - i used to use tabs as a TODO list; I would open a new email in a new tab and leave it open till i completed the "action" required for the email .
I also hate the "FLAT DESIGN" as in iOS7 -- everything runs together and you cannot differentiate objects (like a "button" used to have a border and you could see the area you could click in to activate the button).
Also the "print email" button is now buried at the bottom of an email, and you have to make a few clicks to get to it... please create a "dock" of the actions we want at the top and bottom so its easily accessible.
Everything is more clicks - like the "FOLDERS", you have to do a few clicks to get to the folder you want, and then repeat it if you edit an email and come back to the main inbox
the new yahoo mail is soooooooo bad!!! can't open tabs in this feature! bad bad bad!!! all messed up settings!!! X-( I WANT MY OLD ONE BACK!
CAN'T TELL WHETHER THIS IS GOING TO CUSTOMER SERVICE EVEN THOUGH THAT IS THE TAB I'VE SELECTED. PLEASE BRING BACK THE CLASSIC FORMAT AND PUT BACK ALL TABS AT THE TOP - ITS FASTER WHEN WE'RE COMPOSING MESSAGES AND ITS EASIER READING.
When I "tried" to go back to the old version, the address autofill conveniently was gone...hmmm??? what the heck is with that...are you strong-arming us to use the new absolutely awful version that you hoodwinked us into using. I have never posted anything like this before so it shows you how passionate I am that this new version SUCKS! I set up a gmail acct. you have 48 hours or I will jump ship. Everyone talks up gmail....take a hint and learn from them. I also don't need to see the email convo from each email, makes things very confusing. WHY DID YOU ELIMINATE TABS!!!???? The last few months have been glitches after glitches...why can't you get your act together????
the new version of yahoomail is terrible , no tab option for compose mail , i hate it ,plz bring back the older version
Very difficult to draft more than one e-mail w/o Tabs.
Also, since there are no tabs, one has to rely on "Drafts" to hold one's e-mail while it's being drafted. However, I can find no "Save Drafts" button anymore.
Yahoo changes Mail platforms too much. People get used to something and don't want it to be changed just so programmers/business executives can justify their jobs by coming up with something "New". E-mail by its nature is basic; it's not going to change much with new technology like some other areas of IT, etc. Just keep what works!
Restoration of mail tabs
Bring back tabs, please. The new look is not user friendly and it looks messy! Give us classic yahoo! Been on yahoo since forever but am ready to leave after these changes.
want tabs back at any cost . the present version without tabs is like gmail which is useless.
Please return old yahoo back:where is Save Draft button? Were are email tabs?Why are you asking questions if you do not care? Everybody hates new Yahoo. Do not be sorry for our problems you just created, just roll back your changes.
You have a lot of problems with insane delivery time (hours), crashes, lost emails. The only reason people stay with you: we do not like the un-email look and feel of gmail. Do you hate us and want us to leave? Why are you shoving un-needed, un-liked and confusing changes down our throat? Why do we have to learn your new ways instead of using familiar interfaces? All other email providers, even commercial use simple familiar traditional interfaces, except gmail and now you. At least gmail is dependable. Email is just a tool, not a purpose of our lives.
I want the email message tabs back in mail. NOW!
I really enjoyed yahoo with multiple email tab openings . and am requesting you to please allow me use the same old version that allows me multiple email tabs, selecting and deselecting themes based on my choice, filtering emails by sender ..... I used to have yahoo requesting you if you want to switch to the new version why is this not the case for the new outlook.
The new Yahoo Mail has left out : Tabs that show multiple opening or writing of emails. This is terrible
Change it now or you will loose alot of Customers.
The UI is beautiful, the themes are great, the icons make sense, there is so much to like about the new Yahoo Mail (and My Yahoo too) that I had to say nice job! I do agree with others about the multiple emails open at one time, that was a nice feature. The Visual Design and UX Design you have put into the products lately has been very good; keep it up!
Please go back to the tabbed view. The new view is not "user-friendly" to me. The tabbed view helps me to manage my email more efficiently.
the new version without the tabs is horrible, this literately turned into another google but a bit more glitchy, so get the tabs back a better designer design the interface. Thanks for starting the idea, now its about keeping it.
give us old email back.....nuts....reason i hate gmail is now why i hate yahoo email......horrible....can't keep an email open, copy from it and paste to another.....nuts....no tabs....idiots..
The new Yahoo mail has removed one of the most useful features, namely the tabs for messages, please restore this function asap. Normally, I would have several emails open at once to reference. Please at least give us an option to enable tabs if we want them.
hard to believe that you could once again mess things up so completely. Bring back tabs, have a easy way to jump back to the inbox after a search.
It must have taken real effort to ***** up thins much. How did you think this would help???????
Bring back abs! Quit merging mail together. I don't use GMAIL for just this reason! I can't find messages quickly! UGH! I want CLASSIC!
I keep replying to messages and it brings me back to the home page.
Unread mail should be bold. Bring that back. Also liked the tabs.
The tabs were fantastic for being able to have many emails open at once. I used them CONSTANTLY. Is there some way to have multiple emails open now?
Also, since the folder list is no longer visible ( :( ) have a way to know that a new email has been sent to a filtered message folder. I won't know if my mom has written unless i constantly open the list of folders! I think you took too many ideas from gmail and should have stuck to your own good ideas. They were much more intuitive.
1) restore tabs to yahoo mail
2) restore left pane listing folders, including inbox, spam, and trash, to what they were before
3) designing a new yahoo mail layout for tablets DOES NOT work on a desktop or laptop PC
4) restore everything in yahoo mail to what it was before you changed things a few days ago!!
5) The present yahoo mail layout is TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!
Please return TABS to your newest mail version, to allow users to switch between several open messages
I really, really, really, REALLY HATE the new Yahoo look! I hate that I can't keep open several different emails at the same time! It bugs the **** out of me to have to keep exiting out of one email to look at another. Why does it have to be made more complicated! And it takes forever for my mail to load on my phone! The new Yahoo look stinks!
This new version does not work very well, it's slow, I can't have multiple emails opened at the same time, I can't research emails while I'm writing one, my folders can't be seen in the same window I see the other folder, to sum up, its a freaking nightmare, please give us the option to use previous version, I'm a paying user
bring back tabs. the new format is absolutely hopless, and very very hard to use. it is worse, much worse, than before
I do not like the new version. I would like the old look back. I like to see the different tabs so if I want to go back and forth I can. I do not want any art of chatting. I just want E-mail. I also do not like the fact that we weren't told it would change. it just showed up. I know someone had to prove their worth by changing what already worked but I do not like it.
The new design is horrible. So many more clicks to do anything and getting rid of tabs is one of the worst updates I've seen anywhere on anything at anytime. They need to come back or you will have droves of people leaving you - very soon - for other products. I've tried the suggestions on-line about switching back and forth from basic to newest version to be a restore but I've done this at least 20 times and it hasn't worked. So frustrating!
Why did you change things ?? This new design is REALLY BAD !
How can I switch back and forth between emails while composing a new response to another email. I used to be able to have several to many emails open in tabs at the top of the list which made it easy to do this. Also, the way you have attached the reply to a received email at the top of the thread makes it confusing. Can't tell whether I'm in the Inbox or Sent folder like before . . . no access to changing fonts and sizes from the main page ...... PLEASE FIX IT !!
I want my tabs back. Now.
I hate the new format!! Want the tabs back, want the folders back, don't want added emails in my mail that i cannot erase.
The new format sucks. With the old tabbed format one could have multiple open messages or compose a new one while others are open.
What is it, 1998 again?
It is so hard to navigate the new system and not having things like tabs is incredibly frustrating. Please bring back the old system.
Huge mistake taking out the mail tabs on top to have multiple messages open.
This new look is not user friendly and having lot of problems and bugs, important thing is missing tabs which was user friendly.
The new interface of yahoo email is terrible and extremely confusing. Please bring back the tab format
The new layout is not productive - the tabs are the big thing but I am also noticing that cutting and pasting email address into the to: field requires and extra click instead of a 'return' to enter the names. My old habits are being broken.
Bring back tabs and attachments at the top. I need to keep multiple messages opened, it was also good to see at the top of the message what was attached.
Also the counter of the unread e-mails over 100 now is useless, I can´t see if I have a new mail in my inbox. Keep it counting please!
I have to say also that the option to set a background image is very nice. I would like to add one of my own also. Thanks.
Let us have multiple emails open at the same time again. I might as well use Google if I don't have that feature.
How do I get to the old email system, the one with tabs for open emails. I use that feature all the time. I like to have several emails open at the same time. I now have to go back to the inbox and find the email again and reopen it each time. Very, very inconvenient. This function was there yesterday when I reverted to the older version after your upgrade. Last night when I reverted to the version I like that function was gone.
Also, I have been trying to send feedback but the link says that the page is "currently unavailable." What is going on?
When you make these changes without the ability to get back to the preferred version it takes a lot of my time trying to figure out how to use the new version when I was well versed in the older version.... Ugghhh!
bring tabs back, i cant access multiple emails at once and this messes me up. way to put a damper on my morning
I despise the new Yahoo mail. I want to open multiple tabs at the same time & want to view just the message I'm looking at (not the whole message history with forwards, etc). If I wanted gmail I would use gmail. Bring back the older version of Yahoo mail or at least let us open more than one tab at a time. This new version of Yahoo mail is awful and makes me want to deactivate my account. Please fix this ASAP.
I'm not a fan of the new format, please include an option to used the previous tab format. Otherwise, I'll likely be looking for a new email provider for the first time since 1999.
Bring back tabs. Opening more than one message at time was a plus! Unread messages not highlighted anymore.
Although I have like several of the interface improvements, removing tabs and turing yahoo mail into google like conversations is frustraing. I didn't like tabs, I would have already switched if I wanted my email to look like conversations.
Please, please bring back Tabs or allow Power users to use the old version that allowed for multiple tabs open at once. This is a major issue that determines the usability of the product. thanks.
The TAB option was very cool & handy. Following Gmail blindly is a bad idea.
Please Bring BACK TABS. If I wanted gmail I would have gotten it. At least make it so people can go back to the old format.
please bring back tabs; i open many mails simultaneously; and it's very easy to work with tabs.
I hate the new mail interface. I would like the open mail tabs back please. Since the phases of revamping you email it seems I have lost a feature that I liked with each pass. If it keeps happening I'm leaving.
I need the tabs to keep multiple emails and mail search groups open and accessible with the tabs.
bring back the tabs. i like being able to toggle different emails at the same time - allows me to reference other emails in answering one.
Don't understand the new format, it seems like you stripped down mail and removed formatting and functionality! Why take away the tabs and the always-expanded folders list? It really looks like you regressed back to a simpler, earlier version instead of advancing it. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD FORMAT!
New Yahoo Mail SUCKS Doesn't provide tabs, can't keep open multiple searches, or e-mails, has a poor and confusing layout....I've had messages get lost, not get sent, and lost a decent search ability because some brainiac decided to try some new code. If you don't change soon. Google Mail here I com
Bring back the message tabs! I am really disgusted with the new Yahoo email. I now know that the reason people leave Yahoo mail is because of the very annoying updates that change everything! Bring back the tabs!
Sorry to say but new design sucks, its very very slow in response. The earlier 'Tab' version was much much much better.
I hate new look , no Function , give me back my old tabs
The tabs were one of the best features in Yahoo, why are they gone? Please restore them - thanks! Or - at least include an option for tabs...And - one of my main reasons for preferring yahoo over gmail was that yahoo did not group emails as a long string of messages, and now you are copying gmail in that? Why?
Seriously, I love you guys. Yahoo was always amazing and there's a reason Yahoo users stick to Yahoo. We don't want googlemail or hotmail or gmail... we want Yahoo - so please don's sell out and become like every other email. And no matter what you do... PLEASE BRING BACK TABS!!
I can only find menu options by blindly seeking out with the mouse pointer, and hoping for the best - this may be simply the font colour ie white on white background is invisible. Also cannot switch between open emails and searches any more, so please bring back the tabs.
Dont like this new design without tab ... .tab was very helpful to us.. very discouraging idea .. i was like yahoo for mail but now thinking to switch on Gmail :( :( :(
I literally hate it! please let me use the old version. I want to be able to open multiple mails on seperate tabs
The most useful feature that the classic version had was the tabs for messages - you could be composing a message and jump over to your inbox to reference an email (maybe copy and paste some information). Sometimes I would have 4 or 5 emails open at once to reference. Please at least give us an option to enable tabs if we want them.
I cannot open one message in a new tab while leaving the inbox in the original tab. Why?? Moreover, when I hit the back space key from reading a message, nothing happens until I click back space again. Then I go back TWO (2) pages. This is extremely poor quality control.
I want Classic Yahoo Mail back! I miss the tabs and the new format is very confusing. I hate it. I have had yahoo mail ever since I have had emai. It's the only email I have ever had. But now I hate it. Most times, your changes are subtle, but this new switch confuses and frustrates me. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE give me the option to return to the previous version.
Dear YahooMail, please soonest bring back the "Tabs" and the sort by "Subject" so that we are easier+faster reading our emails...Thanks...
This "NEW" Version of yahoo is absolutely HORRIBLE !! What happened to the tabs ? How do I change the subject line text ? Why do we have to click on a folders tab to see them and then have to click on email tab to see the inbox etc. ??? this is the most horrible revision Yahoo has ever done. Who at yahoo thought this is a usable workable system ? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE RESTORE MY PREVIOUS VERSION OF YAHOO !!
Bring back the tabs. Get it to come back to inbox after sending. The older version worked really well. Why did you mess with a good thing?
The new format is too hard to read and I miss the tabs.
I have multiple modules and things to keep track of and the layout before this new one let me multitask my emails, aka keep one open while i typed up another email and search for an old email and go back to writing without closing any of it out. the screen was tall enough for me to read the whole message while it didn't feel like a widescreen movie. i tried reverting to this old layout/format, but it set me back to the very olddd format where you still couldn't multitask emailing. The laayout also was basic enough to not lag and let me browse conveniently. Not I can't browse with just the keyboard and it sucks. Big time.
I am seriously thinking of switching over to another email server if this does NOT change soon.
RESTORE THE TABS
Bring back tabs! Stop playing with look and feel! Stop trying to be cute - we are trying to use it as a tool!
The tabs were the best thing about the previous version so please, if you do nothing else, bring those back. We're begging you.
If you would like to do even more after bringing back the tabs, please get rid of the search, delete, and star buttons that appear between the sender and subject when you hover. I tend to click that area to open a message and have already unintentionally deleted messages.
I liked being able to open more than one e-mail at a time. It was convenient when I was sending business e-mails. I don't like the new version.
Keep mail features that are useful, such as the ability to view multiple emails, similar to having tabs on a browser. That was the single best feature of yahoo mail. Additionally, now the folders cannot be seen unless we click a button. That is just ridiculous, at least give us the, the customer, the choice to dock the folder panel or not. Or better yet, how about you create templates of previous versions/features that customers can load or customize themselves. This would allow the designers to create new features that customers can 'beta test'. If customers review it as bad, then go back to the drawing board. If it works, then promote the feature and give all customers access to it. Technology has given users the ability to customize nearly everything, from physical objects to virtual ones, why have you not thought about letting users customize our inbox?
Where are the tabs?!
I dont like your new version... because in your old version we can open many mail at the same time like tabs.. which was unique feature.. So bring back that option again
The mail "TABS" that allowed you to access open mails and mails from different format (Inbox, Draft mail, Sent mail, Search mails, etc) easily must be replaced.
I used to like yahoo mail, because of several features, tabs one of them, now it is like gmail, and not so good,
Why do companies insist on changing things...seemingly for the sake of changing them? To give the graphics or marketing folks something to do or keep them in jobs?
What users requested such changes? How many were there?
Bring back the TABS for goodness sake!
How about this, the next time you want to change the interface, post a link in mail that says something like "please come try out the new interface before we roll it out and tell us what you think".
I once had tabs on top that allowed me to access different emails. Now email closes save it to "Drafts" or search again how to get tabs?
I don't like not having tabs so I can have an email open and compose new mail at the same time
I have using Yahoo email for many years. the new version is very restrictive and unwieldy. I was using the multi-tab feature extensively (multiple emails open on different tabs). Now it seems its gone, forcing me to have only one email at a time...very disappointing!
AWFUL. I've used Yahoo mail for over a decade and will switch if it is not restored. Where are the TABS? Awful. Awful. Awful.
My vote: to not have to click into a folder to see my folders, and i finally got used to tabs and now you take them away? I would like them back.... Please and thank you :)
The new 'look' does not load right on my older computer. I liked the tabs option before so I could have multiple emails open at once. I do not like the grouping of the emails and find it hard to follow.
BRING THE TABS BACK- Need to toggle between emails on one screen!!!
Need to cut and paste from email to another.
Need to reference one email while writing another. I don't want to have to close one email every time I need to reference the other one!
And Need to see the Folders readily available.
Come on guys... these are bad "improvements." I've LOVED Yahoo mail before the last few weeks... and now, I' just ready to leave. it's been years... bad for business to change email addresses, but I will if I have to.
What has happened to being able to have more than one email open? I prefer to keep the email I'm replying to in one tab and the one I'm writing in another. This new "improvement" seems to have done away with that feature. Please bring it back. And while you're at it, please stop changing things. It ain't broke...don't fix it.
agreed 100%. Please bring back tabs. Tab was the reason I preferred it over gmail. Not anymore. There are many issues with new version. So I switched back to old version and have already suffered draft mails, not able to download attachments, frequent non-responsiveness, slowness, address book not working, changing format in original email.....looks like there was no proper testing done...
10/09/2013 messed up basic view of Yahoo Plus mail
Tab was better in viewing many emails, contact, calender and tasks same time. Viewing many emails helped me a lot in replying other email same time checking what is written in other email. TABS ARE THE BEST- BRING IT BACK PLEASE, PLEASE
I AGREE - PLEASE BRING BACK TABS - NEW VERSION IS INEFFICIENT, INEFFICIENT AND NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE & - I HATE NEW VERSION -PLEASE BRING BACK TABS
Horrible silly new mail. Most just want to read, write and organise our emails. Doh!
Which used to be easy.
Bring back the TABS, Rescue the TABS from the Island of Misfit Mail applications.
Did YAHOO warn us of these changes like usual? I do not recall them telling us about this move to the NEW Yahoo mail. It is as big a change as MSFT made with Windows 8, and look what happened to that product release!
The look and the themes are decent enough, but WHY WHY WHY would you remove tabbed viewing?
Stop trying to copy Gmail. There's a reason some of us don't use Gmail.
TABS. TABS. TABS. (at least give us the option of NOT using your ugly new iteration.)
GO BACK to the vcersion that worked and made life easier for users...
I really LIKED the "tabs" yahoo mail had; the tabs that allowed me to keep an email from my inbox open & compose another email simultaneously. Gmail did NOT have that which is why I didn't switch. BRING BACK TABS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Brings back tabs and save button
I agree with having tabs so more than one message can be open at the same time.
Bring back tabbed emailing. To be able to work on multiple emails and refer to the inbox/sent folders at the same time was crucial. If this feature doesn't come back in the next couple days (or the ability to revert to the old version) i'm gone. ..after 12 years. I'll use Outlook with Gmail (they don't charge for that service).
I've been using Yahoo forever and love it. Why are you ******* with it? Why are you trying to make it like another email service? Everybody thinks they have to completely change things and make big differences to keep current and cool. Bulshit!! Some times it's nice to have something your used to and familiar with that works. Now you ****** it up!
Add Tabs please
Why would Yahoo take a fully functional multi-tasking version of email GUI and fluff it up with flicker, remove tabs and reduce it to a sluggish barely usable format.
I WANT MY OLD YAHOO BACK!!!!!
The tabs need to come back. This version is also slow and not efficient.
I do not believe you did enough, "current client usage" research when you designed the newest version of Yahoo mail. The features that made you unique have been lost. Tabs and the ability to keep multiple emails open at one time was powerful for many of us who are more interested in using the site for business and open multiple emails at a time for composing and reference. Many of us do not need to see the conversation thread, we can keep it in our heads just fine like in real life. It's nice to be able to switch to it if necessary but it isn't as useful as tabs. I have had a google email account for many years but never liked it because of the conversation thread feature. It makes it ****** to find a specific email and most people are lazy and don't rename the heading when they change subjects so the threads make it ****** to isolate a particular email. Plus without tabs you are constantly searching for the specific email. Also, the search engine without tabs makes it hard to stop what you are doing to check an incoming email in your inbox and go back to your search without tabs. Many of us in business need to multi-task back and forth between emails and views of the data without loosing our place in a particular thread, search or email. Please find a way to solve this need. Otherwise many of us may need to search for another provider. Thank you.
Bring back the tabs. You used to be the best e-mail provider, now this new look is rubbish. I am not an android user. I am a PC user. The from field in inbox cannot be extended, the names of people who sent me e-mails are truncated. The themes colour the whole page completely and there is no contrast between sections such as inbox, left hand panel, etc.
at least the previous vesion had a nice feature of viewing in tabs so you could an email open and still go back to viewing the inbox selecting more and then switching between them in tabs
Where did I lose my tabs? Before I could have a few mails opened at the same time (plus search tab) and could copy from one to another!
Very strange change!
- The unread email count/indicator is almost always inaccurate. Even if you don't have any unread emails, it still shows an inaccurate number and it takes time for it to show the correct information.
- The tabs are one of the reasons I don't use the GMail interface. Please bring them back
- There should be a way to sort grouped conversations from newest to oldest. It's annoying to have to scroll down to the bottom to read the newest message. It's good though that there is an option to not use conversations.
As this new version is just about as awful as i can imagine an email to be then maybe offer us an updated version of classic mail?
Tabs were great, the one thing that kept me using yahoo despite the gradual destruction of the mail. Updates with attachments and the like were useful, so give us the service with a design we feel comfortable with, one that allows us to also turn off the damned annoying infinite scrolling and returns good old pagination.
As it is at the moment i've been forced for the first time ever to use basic mail. I'm not prepared to use that indefinitely, so after many years loyally using Yahoo Mail, it looks like i'm finally being forced to look for another provider!
Put back the tabs so I can have more than one e-mail open at a time!
Get the nice pale greens and oranges back for the color scheme. Bring back tabs and make it a LOT faster to load! The whole thing is a MESS right now. This is not what I expect from Yahoo!!!
As soon as I get used to a new format, you change it. If it would be for better I wouldn´t complain and haven´t done so until now since it wasn´t that bad, but today´s change is the worst in all the years I have been with yahoo. I want to have more than one email open at a time. Most of all, I want to have mails separate, don´t want to see the chain in one email that says Me, Peter. Please give me back my old email!
Unnecessary step to have to open yahoo again in another window to view the inbox or get an address while having an open email
Tabs are one of the most useful items to have & to take that away is completely stupid. I can no longer multitask between e-mails and now I am wasting time opening and reopening folders, mail and everything else. There was nothing wrong with the old format. Stop changing everything without asking the user to allow the format change. No one wants this new version. I will now be looking for another e-mail account since yahoo now looks like gmail, which I did not want in the first place.
I wouldn't mind Yahoo making new updates if it kept the existing functions and added new ones to "expand" not "reduce" functionality. I cringe every time they release an update wondering what now have they taken away and which of my devices won't be able to access my mail or group areas anymore. UGH!
new email layout
there are way to many steps in the new email to send a message and go back to the inbox also where are the tabs this sucks
Tabs was miles beyond preview. God it is awful. Pretty much just a different looking way of opening messages with less view of your inbox. Duh. Tabs actually empowered DOING WORK with multiple messages. Imagine that. It was something you had OVER gmail. No Sorting? Really? Just GONE? I can't believe people make money doing your beta testing. How about more configurability at least. You could win if people had options to taylor their mail from all the different features that have been out over the years. Couldn't be that hard. Let us run the older version until this is a FUNCTIONALLY superior improvement.
Tabs was the best feature to an email service that could hardly work (Yahoo mail). I see Yahoo has decided to take ease of use out of its newer version. It seems each new version gets worse and functions less. Tabs helped to bounce from one email to another even if they were three years apart. So I can see how Yahoo wouldn’t want functionality to continue with their email service. It would be inconsistent with the rest of the service.
Already ticked off and deepy disappointed by your eroding changes to Yahoo mail, I was just about to send several emails to different people, and was looking for tabs so I could transfer info. And I was stunned to see one of your so-calledr "improvements" was to remove tabs. Unbelievable. Stupid, Stultifying. I suppose you might move them into a premium product now. Guess what. No one is going to go there. With the changes you made this week, you have alienated a huge number of people. The complaints you are seeing here are just the tip of the iceberg. We all make mistakes. Yahoo, admit this "fresh new look" was a clusterf*** to borrow from Jon Stewart, and go back to the previous system this week. Or lose us. Forever. In all ways. No going back. No second date. Nothing. God, what were you thinking?
This was obviously never tried out on a significant group of users otherwise you would have had a clear message you were heading in the wrong direction.
You would have been better off increasing functionality (i.e. allowing sub folders), rather than removing the most useful features such as TABS.
I haven't even been able to read my folder titles properly since the previous updat that you messed up as well.
No tabs, no sub-folders, looks awful.
Not much point hanging around after 15 years of paying for a service that keep f****ing up.
Take a poll, pay attention and you may regain a user base.
The change is horrible and a huge step backwards. People multitask when writing emails and the lack of tabs makes that impossible.
Do not like this new format at all. Please switch back to original where I can use tabs or I am switching to Google.
Go back to de old yahoo. I like the Tabs above to switch from e-mail to e-mail.
BRING BACK TABS
No reason to fix something that wasn't broke! Please bring back the classic setting. It was great and 100% useful. Not being able to use the tabs is horrible. I used the tabs ALL THE TIME. It's terrible now. All the emails together is so confusing and a waste of time trying to find the email I need. Please offer a classic version for those of us who loved it the old way. Thank you. (PS - I didn't choose to upgrade.)
Please bring back tabs!!! Why would you take away something that makes mail user friendly?
Email tabs was the best part of Yahoo mail. I could jump between an email I was writing, an email I was reading, and an email search all at the same time. Why would you try to be like gmail when yahoo mail was so much easier to use?
Lot os issues with this email version. Tab and button does not show and on internet explorer and certain computer, you can't change font, very difficult to navigate. if you are trying to dig for old email that you really need, attachment does not show, and it's kind of good luck trying to find unless you really know the subject or the date which really defeat the purpose of search feature. Theme is very annoying as well, color is making things very confusing and not very attractive.
Tabs are essential. Sometimes I start an email then need to search for something in my inbox needed to write that email, then go back to the email I started to add the info then send the email. You have now made it impossible for me to do that. Why is that a good idea? Please restore tabs immediately. I do not pay for Yahoo! premium to have it made MORE inconvenient for me. That should go without saying.
I have been using yahoo for the last 14 years and have remained loyal inspite of recent changes that I did not like but the latest upgrade is not at all nice. I like the "tab" feature that would let me open and compose multiple emails letting me refer to other emails while composing an email. I don't like the mailbox display font in the new Yahoo and there is no option to change the look. The main reason I did not switch to GMAIL is because I liked YMAIL and now it only looks like a GMAIL copy-cat. PLEASE Bring back the YMAIL as it was... PLEASE!
What the ****... where is the tab gone to? What a stupid and dumb "New Feature" or "improvement"...
And where is the original Forward/Reply/Send button on the top? They are gone too, and now at the very bottom that I need to scroll ~ scroll~ and scroll ~~~ to the very bottom.
This is the dumbest upgrade that i have seen in recent Yahoo changing. it's more and more toward what Gmail looks like. The reason that I still stick with Yahoo is because its interface is much better than that dumb Gmail, but now what's different??!! I may should go with Google now, or Yahoo should rename as Gahoo...
The selection boxes are very awkwardly placed and doubled up on certain functions (like the "More" function... with a <box> "More" <box> format). Very non-user friendly. The tab function appears to be gone. The selection boxes available aren't even parallel with one another on the left (looks like it was created by a 10-year-old who couldn't line things up right). And worst of all, each time I try to open an email, it says an error occurred, and I can't even open it to read it. Change this back to the yahoo I had yesterday, please!
I used it because of tab feature and a workable layout.The transparent (+Blur effect) themes make it impossible to see text. Now what's the difference between gmail and yahoo mail. Its just frustating to use Yahoo Mail now. Two words AWFUL UPDATE!!!!!!!
I HATE THIS UPDATE. PLEASE GO BACK TO THE OLD EMAIL.
I HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS. IT DOES NOT LOAD.
Where are the tabs?? Why does it look just like gmail???????
IF I WANTED A GMAIL I WOULD SWITCH, AND NOW I MIGHT, TO ANYTHING OTHER THAN THIS SHI**Y VERSION OF GMAIL.
YAHOO, you have failed. You have failed miserably. Why would you do this????
THIS UPDATE IS TERRIBLE!!!!
I do not want the look and feel and gmail or Hotmail. I loved my yahoo mail and now you have messed it up. I depended on being able to open more than one message at a time - I loved my tabs. I could leave a message up while I worked on a response and continue to check mail. What you have given me is not productive at all!!! Please give us the option to revert back to the old mail system. Thanks!
Tabs gone? No advance notice? No chance for users to take the new format on a 'test drive' before a full rollout?
I don't care that the new page is looks like the ugly older sister of
gmail. I don't mind the email grouping, but could do that just as easily with a search function. But tabs gone? You've honestly removed any reason for me to remain with Yahoo as that was the primary reason this could function as a business email account. It's not unthinkable that people may need to have multiple emails open at the same time without having to constantly save to draft. Additionally, why do I have to download attachments in order to see what it is or what the full name of the document is? What are the implications of this when your spam filters don't catch a well crafted, legitimate seeming spam email, say from WhatsApp, which I use all day, everyday, whose attachment is a virus? [And yes, I have Norton and they are very good, but not perfect.]
Poorly played change, Yahoo.
Idea: go back to the way it was! What were you thinking of? The new format just doesn't do basic things you need an email system to do - like open more than one message at once, or reply to the right person (very bad fault, that one).
The redesign is hard to look at. I can't even deal with it. I have so many contacts through Yahoo that I now have to go and switch over to Gmail. That's the only reason why I haven't switched yet. But they just made it easy. The text is way too big. The color schemes are unappealing. It's impossible to search for old email addresses when your sending a group email. It's all around bad. But hey, there's always Gmail!
I would like to know what was the reason to get rid of tabs?
And if anyone can recommend another e-mail service provider that does have tabs. I'm willing to switch.
Gmail interface is pathetic! Don't take yahoo that route, else I will stop using Yahoo, as I have stopped using Gmail for the same reason! Where are the TABS!!??
Also, I chose basic but everytme it switches to Gmail interface! Stop doing that! Don't Act smarter than users, let it remain as I configure it!!
I think my header says it all. Some day Yahoo will hire someone who has been out in the world for a while instead of a College grad with big ideas and no working experience.
I always thought you had a superior presentation to Outlook (hotmail) all along! I loved the way we could open emails and it created tabs along the top. This provided a very easy way to get back to the inbox, but still have an email (or several) open that we were still processing. That was great feature! At least you left the mail selection arrows in the unmovable bar on top instead of in the individual email item level itself (one big error in Outlook... besides not having the tab approach).
bring back the classic yahoo......why did yahoo change it's look, it sucks
The 'new look' is ok .. but removing useful features, and having non-traditional placement of buttons, is ridiculous.
-1- BRING BACK TABS
-2- Put the send button, and other buttons, back on the top when composing.
Tabs were the only reason I used Yahoo instead of other e-mail providers. If they are out of the picture for good, will definitely switch to another service.
I want to open 2 emails using the tabs, but somehow you idiots thought it would be more convenient to disable that feature forcing me to close out 1 email, return to my inbox and then open another. Give the people what they want, or you will lose customers.
This is not Twitter. I have to have tabs. I have to be able to jump back and forth between files and my Inbox...I have to see those files when I open my Inbox. I pay an annual fee for what has been, in the past, an excellent program, with excellent service. I didn't want or need a pretty background pattern; I need efficiency. What were you thinking???
Please restore the last version of Yahoo mail, which had better features (like tabs across top to view multiple emails.) Get rid of the gmail-like feature of grouping emails in a string- if i wanted that, I would just use gmail!
hey guys - i actually really like the new format and I do like that the settings are easier to play with, but you've got to bring back the tabs, and the ability to toggle between open messages. It makes the whole thing hard to work with. I've had Yahoo for almost 10 years and really don't want to go down a different road.
I hate the new format! I want access to several tabs like before. Why don't you ask before changing...feels like government involvement on ths too!! Never ask, just tell
I see you guys followed in the footsteps of gmail in making email more complicated and less intuitive. What happened to the tabs??? that was the best part of yahoo - I think you guys were the only ones left to offer tabs. Tabs allowed me to multi task - compose, search, read, hold an open email message, reply all in multiple tabs without ever having to leave the main inbox list. Beyond me why you would change and make it so much worse. I was just about to change my business account over to yahoo b/c gmail is so horrible. But looks like Yahoo is basically the same now... Major disappointment.
Being able to have several tabs open, inside my mail box, allowed me to write an email while simultaneously searching for other emails, copying things from them to paste in the message that I'm composing, check my sent folder, etc. WHY WOULD YOU TAKE THAT AWAY!!??
Where are the Tabs? The old version was infinitely better... I thought you had sent out an old version!
Seriously?! This is better?
Are you deliberately trying to make people move to a different email provider? Surely it's not rocket science to be able to open more than one email at once. Most of us have to do some cross referencing at some point. But yet you've ditched the tabs. WHY?
Hmmm.... If only chrome did email...... wait a minute..... ;)
If CEO Marissa Mayer helped design the new Yahoo email interface, it seems that she has lost some of her marbles! Yahoo mail was appealing to me BECAUSE it was different from Google Mail.
Though I had been using Google Mail also, Yahoo mail has ALWAYS been my main email ONLY because it allowed tabs.
Now they are gone!!!
Tabs allowed quick viewing and copying, where needed, and then pasting very easily. I am not sure what fertile minds in Yahoo came up with such an idea to remove tabs.
This is utter nonsense!!
If there is no difference, now I have to consider switching to Gmail and reroute all my Yahoo mail to it.
keep the theme n design idea ... but change the functionality to old one
I understand that you are chasing Googe and their Gmail product, but not everything Google does is good or right. The new interface looks and behaves almost exactly the Google Apps for Business mail offering
The one thing that differentiated the Yahoo mail from Google's mail was the tabbed interface. Tabs are big productivity boost; that's why browser's have them.
This is a big enough step backwards that I'm considering looking to Microsoft's outook.com for my personal email service.
Please bring the tabbed interface back!
Did ANYONE do a survey? Or have a focus group of more than 100 people?? If you're going to make changes, as least modularize them so you can put a block back in when you get a ton of complaints, like THIS one. And what happened to giving us a link to "go back to the previous version" even if I have to do that each time I log in??? Is your team THAT confident that they could please everyone all at once? What snobs.
This is a really terrible format, Yahoo. I have stayed loyally with my email since 1998 but the lack of tabs is HUGELY FRUSTRATING
This new version of Yahoo mail is horrible. Can't open more than 1 email at a time, when attaching files the folder names get messed up, aestheics are nothing short of painful to look at! Give us an option to revert back and stop making changes for the sake of change!!!
The main reason I still used Yahoo mail instead of Gmail (which my company and school before that insisted I use) was because of the tabs feature. Being able to open more than one message at a time, and being able to quickly and easily refer back to previous emails while writing a new email was an invaluable asset. Removing the tabs feature has made my professional and personal life much more difficult. Please consider reversing this change!
Where is mail tabs?
YahooMail seems faster & smoother - I do like the organizational changes. But I live by the Tabs option of mulitple emails open at once. That is how I work, please bring that back.
Also, make it optional to view like Gmail or view by individual email by date that it was received. If I wanted Gmail viewing I would switch to Gmail. I find it too complicated. Maybe it could be a sort by subject option if you want to find a thread of emails.
This is so frustrating, I don't care about pretty pictures in the back ground. I just want to check my emails efficiently and easily. The tabs have disappeared and they were one of the reasons I like Yahoo mail. Also they keep all the emails on a stream instead of separately and I can't see an old email to reference it for information. The layout is making my eyes go funny. Aaarrrggggggggghhhhh why have you changed it?????? There should be an option to keep it the way it was!
I think you should bring back the message tabs. I like having the tabs for messages I wanted to look into. It keeps things visually organized.
Why would you change something that is working perfectly??? I dont want to open up tones of tabs on my safari, I want all my yahoo emails to be under one tab. Now I have to "save my drafting" if I wanna go search for an old mail to refer to. WHF? Seriously???
What a bloody disaster.
Your new mail program has me thinking I need to change providers. It is terrible.
It just opens another yahoo mail tab. Not happy with whatever you think are "features." I pay for no ad yahoo.
My idea is for you to FIX IT
Put the tabs back!!
Tabbed emails are the only reason I use yahoo and only reason you have my business email as well! Thinks outside the box, dont follow the herd. SHEEP!!!
We need the tabs! how else can i work if i can not copy from one mail to another!or to vizualise in tabs what i want!!
Where are tabs and sorting by sender?
The email tabs on top were great and very convenient to switch between, however now it disappeared. That must come back!
I previously could have multiple messages open at the same time and no longer can. When I forward a past message, I see the initial message and it isn't clear whether both messages are being sent or just one. I absolutely hate this. The mail is unusable...
Go back to the previous version. Since I pay for Yahoo Mail and am no longer getting my money's worth, I'm dropping Yahoo Mail.
The new format SUCKS! WHERE ARE THE TABS!!? Tell the Yahooligan CEO if I wantd a friggen gmail interface acct, I'd have gmail
I use Yahoo Mail because I don't like Gmail. Why change something that works so well.
Nice design, but I MISS THE TABS !!! And how to save a draft manually?
I would expect features to be ADDED and not TAKEN AWAY ! I consider not paying anymore for this...The features I loved are taken away??!!
IT Sucks ******* **** heads changing things without even consulting withyour customers....bring back the tabs!!!!!!!! I'm going to Gmail ********
Whey did you change the interface? The old one was very easy to use with the tabs, etc. This looks like a cheap knock off of gmail! Change it back, please...
I use tabs to keep track of emails I need to answer, when I'm pulling data from multiple messages, and to look at a number of search results at the same time. This is an awful layout. Why would you want to be like gmail when the reason so many people still use you is that they don't like gmail? Please bring back an option to keep the old UI.
This is what made Yahoo different than all other email providers... now its just the same as gmail. I LOVED being able to switch between message tabs for information. please bring this back!
The tabs made Yahoo mail unique! It was simple to write one email while referring to another. I can get used to this new layout but please bring back tabs!
The only "new" thing I like is being able to drag and drop attachments (so thanks for copying that from them), but I really liked the tabs - thats something yahoo mail did way better than gmail. You can have a search, a draft email, and other stuff up all at once - so useful! Now its gone. I have reverted back to basic.
Based on the feedback, it looks like most people hate the new Yahoo Mail. If you were truly listening to your users, you would change the back to the old email system. This one is ****** to read, ****** to navigate, isn't the least bit attractive, and works very similarly to Gmail, which I hate! I loved the tabs, I loved the clean look of Yahoo Mail, I loved everything about Yahoo Mail. Now, I may have to find something else that will fit my needs.
If this is truly supposed to be "Customer Care" and you truly listen to your users, get things right and go back to your old version. On top of that, an email would have been nice telling users that there was going to be a change. Instead, I sign in one time and my mail is fine, the next it's all f'ed up.
I know we won't get the old format back, and I'll admit that I hated it when you change it before but I adapted. But THE ONE THING that you had that is not on my Gmail (three separate accounts with them) was being able to open a series of different emails in tabs, and easily migrate between them to copy and paste, or to check something in one that's necessary to reply to another. Now this is gone, it seems - or is there a way to get it back? Tell me quick, as it was the only thing keeping me with you lot, if I'm honest.
What happened to the TABS - so that I could have several emails open at once, including an email that I was drafting? Very unhappy
First of all, your "Feedback" portal on your main page doesn't work! I enter my feedback then the portal responds to say ":the page you requested is currently unavailable". WTF?!? This happened two days in a row!
What have you done with the mail interface ?!? You guys are constantly messing with the look and feel of yahoo mail and you really missed the mark on the latest release.
Why the silly backgrounds like you've done with Flickr? Very few people I know like the new Flickr look and now you're making it an option on Yahoo mail.
More importantly, what have you done with the feature that allows you to have multiple emails open at the same time, with convenient tabs at the top of the screen?
This was the most useful feature you've introduced in years and now I can't get it any more.
Please bring it back !!!!!!!!!!
Threading conversations is good -- thanks for that -- but tabs were the one feature that really set Yahoo Mail apart from the rest. I use Yahoo Mail for my work, and the tabs were essential to the way I organized communication; I honestly don't know how I will function now.
Stop screwing with our mail
Additionally, I don't like the new mail in general. Too much like gmail. I never used gmail because it is such a mess. The conversations ui is very disorienting. I like the idea of the feature but the execution is poor. Prior to this rollout, yahoo mail was really really good. Clean, simple.
Hey Customer Care, why did you remove tabs in email??!! This was a key feature over Gmail. Was this a technical decision, or just a dumb idea.
PUT IT BACK! It made you the best web based email out there!
Sr. IT Project Manager
I cannot have multiple messages open at the same time anymore to refer to other messages when reading or writing a reply. Awful!
Why did you take away the tabs? It was really useful in moving from a searched email to a new email. Bring them back.
Liked having the tabs for various emails, very useful, not finding anything in this new version useful, lack of functionality replaced by themes that made reading mail more difficult.
Revert your changes to the prior format. I HATE the "new" look, which is how gmail works and it ****! I miss the tabs and buttons in the order they were before. I also hate the way forwarding an email is now working; again - it is emulating gmail and is sucky, not user friendly, hard to read and use for mail forward. RETURN TO PRIOR VERSION!!!!
The new mail doesn't function properly in Firefox. The tab bar is missing.
Bring back tabs in Yahoo mail. There was nothing wrong with the layout and you went ahead and made it worse.
The ability to have inbox and several emails open at once is indispensible. That must come back - otherwise your mail interface is completely useless. And when you've done that - please stop changing it! It was fine as it was before, so just leave it alone!
Multiple emails open at one time.
This was probably the single feature that made yahoo most useful for me. Hoping it will return in the near future...
Worst idea in years.
Design team should be fired.
This was turning to be the most popular subject of the day; I do not see it anymore. Des it mean YAHOO team, got the idea and decided to do something about it? Hence removed the post? Hope so
The new yahoo mail is horrible, the previous version was working very well, I liked the tabs very mch. Also, this new e-mail can't find things which I managed to find yesterday with the "old" version of the search. You keep saying you want to improve customer experience, but from all the comments that I see, customers don't consider it an improvement. I gave up using Gmail because it's too complicated, why do you want to look like them? Thanks.
Why have tabs been disabled? They were the best feature of YahooMail. PLEASE get them back! Just a few lines of code. Come on. That can't be too hard.
What happened to my yahoo mail??? The only reason I prefer yahooo to other mail provider is because I was able to open more mails at the same time, in different tabs and jump from one another without closing them. Now this is gone! How silly of you!
Please put my mail back the way it was!!!!
It is very week mail now, I can not see all tabs at the same time. Now it does one function at a time. I suggest to switch back to older ver
are you will back to the tab interface again ...... or not ?????????
Why not have a A tabs function that allows you to keep several emails open at once! Then you could work on composing a new email while easily referencing old ones... Brilliant! I'm amazed nobody has done this yet, it would be a very very useful function.
without tab i can't compose multiple email, pleaaaase bring back tab
Stuff themes, SIMPLICITY is what's needed.
If it doesn't get much better, I will go elsewhere. I will only pay for a service from someone who respects customers, not this arrogant bunch.
Leave the bloody thing alone - its getting to be a pain to get any work done; any more tinkering and I'm off!!!
Stop making stupid changes that only make the system less usable.
Bring back tabbed emails
Don't imitate Gmail (there's a reason we're NOT using Gmail!)
The new themes are intrusive.
One of the main reasons I kept a Yahoo mail account was to use your email tabs feature, which lets me keep open a bunch of emails that I am working on so I can tab through quickly, e.g., to combine and integrate proposals. The new release no longer has this capability. It's too bad that Yahoo is trying to be exactly like Google rather than trying to find innovative solutions. Such tactics will just make customers want to use the real thing.
i cannot tell u how ****** i am that u did this & give us NO CHOICE as to which version we want to use. i have less than 1 month to pull together a benefit which involves hundreds of emails to organize & line everything up & u have just made my already completely insane to-do list about 10x longer w this "new & improved" version which TOTALLY SUCKS & has completely ruined some of the only redeeming features u had. no more tabs so u can easily check back & forth between emails & folders?! no more opening an attachment bc now it saves it to ur computer?! how the **** does that "improve" anything? WTF were u thinking?
Why did you copy gmail's format? The tabs in yahoo mail is what makes me prefer to use yahoo mail rather than gmail! And you can barely distinguish which have been read or still unread. It's pretty lame copying another email provider's format and even more pathetic to remove the one thing that makes your email platform preferable. I hope I get a response for this as I see only those who prefer no tabs are getting automated responses from your customer care.
At least give us an option to revert to the old interface!!
I have never commented on your post before. I liked Yahoo. We were great together and used to have long chats. I could count on you and you knew I was faithful. Something has changed. I don't think we talk the same language anymore. Maybe I've been spending too much time with other programs? I'm sorry. We've obviously grown apart. If I spend more time with Yahoo, will you go back to the old way? That old format with tabs ? We had some good times together. It can be the same again.
I cannot open multiple tabs...plz dont become another gmail...u were so good & functional previously.
No, no, no! Where are the tabs? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I HATE IT SORRY YAHOO - PLEASE DONT GO TELLING US ITS BETTER WHEN SO MANY PEOPLE HAT THIS NEW FORMAT - PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD VERSION - how can you tell us what is better when SO MANY people hate it - tabs was a brilliant function yet you took it away ? Give us a break yahoo - how ignorant can you be of so many peoples views and wishes
Go back to either the original Classic Yahoo Mail or the recent one with tabs... but not this new one you started on October 8, 2013.
Hi, the previous mail was much better. I could open more mails and just click between them. Now its like gmail,which why I am not usinig
Bring back email tabs. They are a very useful feature. Why would you get rid of them? It's a definite step backwards and I'm sure will push people away.
please keep alive the tab option, It is very convenient to compose a new mail while verifying the mails received.
how do I get the old look back. this is very uncomfortable. Where are the tabbed emails?
Being able to keep a draft email open (or more than one), while switching to the inbox or sent folder to find info is invaluable. You have effectively removed multitasking now. Guess I'll have to open Yahoo Mail in multiple browser tabs--frustrating. And I can't save my drafts, I have to trust that Yahoo has done it automatically...
I like the idea of the themes, but why not let us use our own Flickr photos? You could at least add more color combos.
Sometimes, it really helps to organize my inbox by sender, or subject -- now you've removed that option?
please return message tabs -- working with multiple email messages was very convenient in the old UI, but not in the new one
I am thinking to switch to gmail if TAB will not come back , I am yahoo mail paid user for long time
One of the best features of the "old" yahoo mail were the TABS.
To be able to do a search, find the emails in question and still go back to Inbox, and other opened emails in the TABS made it a far superior product. This version of Yahoo mail is the only program I know that has font features at the bottom of the screen. This simple is not intuitive.
Change is meant to be for the better. I think the new Yahoo Mail has been ill conceived.
I like the new design, fonts. I like that you slimmed/narrowed the top of the email section, so now we have more viewing area.
However, it was a bad idea to remove the tabs. It was extremely useful and nobody else had it, not Outlook, not Gmail.
Would you please bring back the Tabs?
I think tabs of previous layout were better than now
Your new email format is ****. No tabs, and it COMBINES emails with similar subjects! Are you people totally stupid? ********, ********. Put it back the way it was.
The main reason I use yahoo instead of gmail is because the tab system allowed me to multi-task better. Now you've taken that away, and I'm VERY disappointed! I need the TAB system. I got so much more done that way. How soon can you remedy this problem?
I do not like this new version. The tabs made it easy to view and send an email without having to close everything, It made multitasking and managing emails easy. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!
No tabs? Mouseover on the sender is not there anymore? Not to mention the other comments listed here from others. Yahoo thinks this newest version is better? We think not. Bring back the previous version. Bring it back!!!
Please bring back tabs. It was great to be able to tab back and forth between a message that you were composing and one or more messages in one or more different folders.
Where did the tabs gone?
in the past i was able to open several e-mails and they opened in several different tabs, however with the new design I can only open ONE email and can not go back to another opened email
Please make it possible to open several email in tabs as it used to be
I miss the tabs. I am very sad!
TABS missing, INBOX shows both received and sent messages (you have the sent folder), Font is awfull.Please make the OPTION - Classic setup available. In my opinion the new inerface is ok for KIDS not for Adults.
TABBED version was much much better as that make using Yahoo mail easier and faster, specially when you are composing mail by taking reference to any other mail from other folders. Please revert the update or give user option to select YAHOO mail version, so that they can use YAHOO mail the way they like.
i like the gmail way of grouping chain emails together in a conversation to keep track of the thread but what makes yahoo superior is the tabs function - to be able to multi task, viewing other emails from various conversations while writing multiple emails to different recipients. The tabs function is key, do not remove it and also, do not take up gmail's "labelling" organisation workflow. The yahoo version of folders (where emails are SEPARATED from inbox and neatly categorized) is the best. Lastly, option to have the workspace (typing area box) of the composing of an email to be bigger. Before i hit send, I want to be able to view/read/see my composed email in a as wide a page as possible and not having to keep scrolling down (or up again).
This was THE MOST useful feature in Yahoo mail--and one that NONE of the other webmail providers have. It's why I stick with Yahoo mail. And now you've taken it away? Why?? BRING BACK THE TABS!
You changed my mail format. Change it back
In the previous yahoo appearance there is a tab option on the top to view all the pages. But it will not now. Please update them and it will easy to handle multiple pages without closing the other mail or compose.
Same time we can open inbox, sent and compose using tab option
Yahoo mail is now awful. Bring the tabs back, make the ads smaller, and make the colors bolder. Do you know that gmail doesn't even have ads?
Seriously! Who was the idiot that thought that taking away the Tabs functionality and replacing with stupid beach themes was a great idea?????? Quote: "Yahoo Mail has a fresh look and new features we think you'll love" News flash!! We hate it. Tip: email is used for functionality...I DON'T CARE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE!!!!!
Where are my open emails, they use to be listed on top....
Most software mfgrs warn their customers when they are going to be making changes and what the changes are going to be. Did you even test this the changes with real users?
simple, bring back the tabs for opening multiple emails, what the heck are you people thinking?
This new interface is worse. I open sent folder and change sort view. Then open Inbox, it's stuck. Cannot open Inbox.
And I want you to bring email tab back. It was really convenience for open multiple email. But now it's really complicated.
it was fine until TODAY !! DAMMNIT !! RETURN TABS!! (please)
Sucks. I often use search and it is NOT clear at all how to return to inbox from search results. The tab metaphor worked. Go back to it. If I wanted to use Gmail, I'd use Gmail. I am a long-time Yahoo Mail user and I have never been so close to abandoning my account as I am now.
It sucks! The more you change things, the worse it gets! The classic, Yahoo! mail was far better. No more tabs, you chopped my ''In'' box in half when you moved those God-awful banner ads to the right side of the page. Each time you make changes that users do not like, you chide us like children, and tell us ''you will get used to it". Yep, I sure will, and will move my contacts elsewhere, as Yahoo! mail is not worth using thanks to your ''new-and-improved'' updates that are anything but. And also, do you people at Yahoo! mail even bother listening/reading from users who give feedback? Offering apologies, and then continuing on with worthless ''updates'' is not what I would call offering good customer service.
I think you should just keep it the way it was and when you want to roll out new pages you should actually beta with people who use the **** thing.
Tabs: need them back -- they are an important tool that keeps Yahoo! a vital and useful venue;
Sorting: allow sorting by all standard fields (notably "from" and "subject" are missing now) -- this allows me to more easily sort & remove unwanted emails, which lightens the load on your servers...
Adhere to ADDITIVE feature mods, rather than regressing / replacing what was working well. Themes? Great, all for it (I like the C:\> idea) -- but everything that was present a week ago can work with this theme -- no need to reduce the interface to lesser capability.
Why is yahoo soliciting suggestions through "uservoice.com" ?? You're all fully capable of managing a feedback function in-domain I'm sure... and I'd feel better making valuable suggestions directly to your site, rather than filtering through a 3rd party.
This is terrible looks like Google Mail and I moved off their site to Yahoo. Now I have to go to "OutLook" or hope you get your stuff together and read the comments that are highly in favor of returning to the previous formant. Please fix this ugly creation......
bring back my old settings.
The new update is awful as it took away all of the best features in the old email. I've never seen any service provider taking away the best features that already existed and replaced them with inferior ones. Very disappointed.
Please return back the tabs....this was the only feature that differentiated it from any other email provider.
No tabs, glitches in trying to answer mail, all messages lumped into one day...this "new" layout is so sad. I doubt it will go back to the way it was no matter how many hate it, so I will look for other options.
tabs! sort by sender!
Please replace the tabs when viewing email so you can view multiple emails at the same time as well as compose then tab to the others for reference
I don't have time to learn new stuff that isn't intuitive. I liked tabs & old sorting, why on earth did you remove them? I can't find all Messenger contacts, I can't figure out how to add new ones. I just set up sms text messaging to use with yahoo messenger yesterday, and went to test it today, but got nothing. Someone sent me a YM, I haven't received it. The point was to be able to communicate with this person on the go without having to sign into yahoo mail, which is blocked at my workplace (even on my own devices and on my own time). Now we're back to having to email at night only, and I can't even do that efficiently. We're pressed for time as it is, and the new interface has made it more difficult.
Please bring back the old Yahoo. I need tabs in order to work efficiently. I strongly prefer the old font (why did you get rid of the purple contrast at top? Now it all blends together- looks horrible!) and I STRONGLY prefer my reading pane on the bottom. PLEASE bring it back. These changes are terrible.
See I'm not alone - Bring Back TABS - was how you differed from other emails and what made navigation and ease to search while composing and just be able to tab back. I detest the stacking emails - want OLD back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I want a chain to continue it's much easier to just read from the bottom up. Additionally, I sometimes want to forward part of the email, so need to be able to delete ALL unwanted parts. Old adage - If it's not broken, don't fix it - well it WASN'T Broken until you Fixed it. Now it's broken fix it by returning to the Old and forgetting the New ever appeared!
You DON"T always make it better. Tabs. What was wrong with the ability to have several emails open at the same time with tabs.
And the Close button is way up to the right instead of on the tab.
And what happened to my page list instead of all my email in an incredibly long list?
Why don't you fix something important like the fact that viewing my mail in Outlook marks them all as read?
And all those steps to drill into to get a help answer. Get real. 2 clicks max.
And your Calendar tool sucks too.
If I didn't have so much work email in this account I would ditch Yahoo in a heartbeat.
Here's my idea - go back to your previous setup with tabs and trash icons on each line. This new version is AWFUL - a total regression!
The previous style was VERY GOOD.
The tabs worked REALLY WELL, and were very PRACTICAL.
Why get rid of them?
Get them back, please.
Stop changing things, please.
i want my old mail back because i can constantly switch between different mails using tabs without completely closing them
When trying to compose an email, I often refer back to an existing email in a folder. The previous Yahoo! Mail allowed me to do so. This new version want to store or discard the email I am composing when I try to enter a folder. This is not useful
