Folders new mail notification

It could be better if emails filtered in folders could have a new notification!
When you log into your account, you don't see new email notification if the new email is moved to any folder!

        Using an iPad I have successfully created subfolders with it's default mail program.
        1) open mail, view folders in left margin.
        2) tap 'edit' (upper right of margin)
        3) tap 'New Mailbox' in lower left (IMHO it should say 'new folder')
        4) Select folder/mailbox under 'Mailbox Location'.
        5) use as you like, web-browser (tested with chrome) works and creates at '>' to drill down into subfolders.

        No notice that my email was going to change!! Just changed once again on 2/4/14. Not liking this format at all!!! Why can't we stay with the old version?

        allow cut & paste without excessive delay.
        Make it easier to change fonts & styles (ie. right click, then 'Format Text').
        Just make it rlike Outlook, or keep it really simple to speed it up....Please...
        email has become a major P.I.T.A. with Yahoo!

        Make it more like Outlook and less like Gmail. There's a reason (many reasons) that I don't use Gmail. It seems that every time I get familiar with the Yahoo format, it changes, becoming less user friendly. Email should be quick & simple. This one really sucks!

        I do not understand why it is such a problem to delete emails. I have had Yahoo mail forever. Do I need to go change to my optonline.net account only?

        I HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS THESE DAYS WITH MY YAHOO ACCOUNT!!!! I don't want to change yahoo provider, but I have a lot of problemms lately. I can't send or forwarding messages, very often I can't move my mails to any folder, everything is "frozen", I can't even delete... I can't send mails from draft folder for days.......
        I don't know what's going on with Yahoo, but it doesn't funkcion normally!!! Please do something so I can communicate via my yahoo. mail. On the other hand if that persist further, I have to think to change my provider!

        Thanks and best regards,

        budimirsuzana@yahoo.com

        In the new mail options Notifications such as change password because someone has tried to excess your Yahoo account through some external device etc. are not visible. And therefore, password is hacked by some well wisher.Do you have some suggestion for me as What to do next? .

        THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for adding the new mail notification for Folders! Now I can tell if I need to open them for new mail, where I couldn't before.

      • What does it matterWhat does it matter commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

        So go for it !!!
