Now I can't even 'sign out' of my yahoo email account!!
I can't move certain (don't know how these are determined) emails to folders.
Can't print a clear document!
Can't find some of my emails, to or from!!!
This email format is a disaster!!!

The new format on Windows is dreadful. Please provide the possibility to go back to the old format. I find it very difficult to the original email when others have replied to it and I end up including someone else's reply with my reply.
Also as soon as you draft a reply it appears as part of the email in the inbox. It is then very difficult to remove. There are all sorts of dangers of sending rubbish.
I don't want to change email provider but I will have if I cannot go back to the previous email system. Luckily the Apple and Android yahoo mail has not been changed and is useable.

My best idea is for the Board of Directors to fire Marissa Mayer.. the new CEO responsible for this disaster and bring back the team that designed and managed the old email that we all... obviously... loved.
As for me... I'm not waiting... after 16 years, my Yahoo Mail account will be closed by Dec 31st. I'm just finishing up the transition to my new email account at outlook.com which works beautifully. Folders, normal look for the Inbox, forwarding works, attachments work.... it has everything that Yahoo used to have except Tabs. I like tabs, but they aren't essential for me. My friends who need tabs have gone to GMX.com and like that very much. So there are 2 good options out there for an new email provider: outlook.com if you don't need tabs but want everything else we used to have and GMX.com if you want/need tabs.
clearly designed by those who don't use it!!! almost NOTHING worth saving!
I HATE this new Yahoo Mail.........................................it is now a challenge to send simple forward mail !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I realize you have 'pat phrases' to deal with public, however, this format of the email is totally disgusting and as one person put it, 'extremely embarrassing'. I will not put up with extra wording on the screen which distracts me from the main topic, not being able to see the bc and bcc, not being able to check the incoming email as being spam (which happens on a daily basis), not being able to see the FULL messages of each part of the email to determine what I am doing next, not being able to see my folders at a glance without going out of email and into folders, AND THERE IS MORE. I will look at other email providers if you do not correct your mistakes extremely soon. As one person put it, "there is no reason to change something that works". Put your staff onto a different project if they have that much idle time on their hands. Oh yes, 'hearing this' and correcting your mistakes are quite different.
Your final words "hearing this!" Are you?
The new format is a disaster. I cannot keep track of my conversations and how on earth do you delete a draft if you decide to not use it.
This format is confusing and am seriously considering changing my provider after some 20 years of being a Yahoo user:(

I cannot even check my newest mail now as background ads keep me from accessing them. I depend on my e-mail for school and work but this is unusable to me.
To comment basic facilities must be there here after new format it is getting extremely difficult to open e-mail account. Mostly you get content encoding error. After repeated trails one may be lucky to open his account.
Phil Seagrave commented
PLEASE change this back to the old format. The threads are impossible to follow. I don't know who I am replying to or what will be included in the message history. This is a nightmare (and potentially embarrassing) in conversations with more than one person. I have to respond to most emails from my ipad where it is still obvious what is going on, because the webmail layout is completely user-unfriendly. It is slow, unreliable and there are no tabs which were so useful. The fact that Yahoo! haven't made any statement on this after 3 months is really an insult to their users.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Mohini Chakranarayan commented
The old format was more convenient for me.
I understand that this is a free service, but there must be something for you. I loved this mail for the past 16 yrs but now I hate it! Recently it became totally unreliable!, Approx 10% of my mails don't go out or getting delivered HOURS later. THe new "design" or format you use is so not user friendly. I am never 100 % sure, who gets what when I reply of frwd something. I also dislike that I can't have multiple mails open at the same time. I already signed up for a gmail account because a good email is so essential. I will miss my good old yahoo mail...... :-(((((
I cant find my messages any more. I cant reply to messages. It tries to send them to me. I can't use my contact lists. I used to love and recommend Yahoo. Not any more. The classic format was better. Seriously thinking about jumping ship. Anyone got any recommendations ?
dear product support. we get it. you're ****** too. the exaggerated, overstated enthusiasm doesn't veil well, and the exclamation points are obvious distractions. quit the sarcasm, walk into your bosses bosses bosses office and tell them what's really going on out here? OK?
I thoroughly and sincerely HATE the new layout!!!!!
I will leave much loved Yahoo soon if nothing changes!!
I cannot spend time on thinking "Bll@y ****, is it from ME or rof me , drives me mad, it is an utter messssss.
Why make changes? If something is new it means it is ONLY "new" not "better".
