I use Hotmail/outlook web based email at work, it breaks every now and then, but it does allow me to organise my emails into subfolders, which are always on the left side bar.
Please bring this feature to Yahoo, it would be very useful.
Give back sub-folder function that you removed on one of the first "enhancements". Yahoo enhancements are...not.
You really should fix your folders so we can organize further by using sub-folders. This is not a new concept for computer file organization.
August 2015 - A couple of weeks ago, a new feature popped-up while cleaning folders in my yahoo mail. It was a "how to" create sub-folders. At the time, I tried it, made few sub-folders simply by 'right clicking' on a folder. Next, I selected and dragged emails into sub-folders. Today, I wanted to continue to organize my folders. Now realize that feature is no longer available. I have searched via yahoo help and there is no mention of 'sub-folders' as an option to be used in yahoo mail.
I found this thread, from 3 weeks ago referencing sub-folders. It's titled, the following: "Unable to Delete a Sub Folder in Yahoo Mail?" See the link:
One person answered the thread and claims the followings: "Subfolders are not allowed in Yahoo mail."
I followed the recommendation and tried to use the "Yahoo! Mail Quick Fix Tool", but the results came back as follows: "We didn't detect any system issues."
So now I'm left wondering, why was I able to create sub-folders approximately 2 weeks ago, option no longer available today and seems it's not even a feature available in yahoo mail ?
Yahoo, I need help with this, please. Your "Help for Mail for Desktop" is like being stuck in a in 'automated ****...press #1 for this, and #2 for that....' and I keep looping around in it and I'm not getting anywhere. So it's NOT user-friendly if care for that sort of jargon.
In our Personal system we create Folders again Sub Folders right, in the same way cannot we create Sub folders in Yahoo. Plz help......If this option is available we can keep all our files in Sub Folders.
I used to be able to create subfolders under the main folders, now I cannot, what happened, please bring back!
allow sub folders to be created. i want all emails relating to school on one folder, but I wan to sort from which school for each kid.
google allows me to create sub folders.
I am loving the new Yahoo mail, it is just awesome.
I would like to have option of adding sub folders to my existing folder, that will make my life a lot easier.
Also, if there can be some option to add a conversation as priority, I know there is option to mark it as star, but I use it for something that I quickly need to find so if we can have an option to add a conversation as priority that will be great. There are few conversations that are important but not important enough to be marked as star.
I hope I am making sense.
Come on folks - it's time to have sub-folders!
Subfolders! I cannot believe there is no option to create subfolders. Just about every mail program I have ever used allows this. Can you please allow the creation of subfolders? It will make organization of mail much cleaner. Thank you.
It's not an idea... a basic need! Need to be able to make subfolders. A GROSS omission! Need it now to continue using Yahoo for which I paid the $49 annual fee.
Please provide capability to create subfolders in Yahoo email. It will be so helpful! Thank you and looking forward to this new addition.
The more people requesting being able to pub sub-folders under each main folder, the more likely Yahoo will listen and make this feature available to us. Right now, everything is a main folder and I have to list my folders with the name of the main folder and add the year as I divide up what's stored in my folders by the year or make a new folder annually so that it's easier to tell what year I'm looking for when going back to check an email.
We need sub-folders
Folder in a folder in a folder in a folder (like in outlook.mail)
enable us to create sub-folders for better organization
Sub folders for the folders would be nice to keep emails organized in groups
I think the inbox folder should have subfolders...
The ability to create a sub-folder within an existing folder in order to shorten the view of my list to main titles
Since your redesign... YAHOO is much better,
BUT WE STILL MISS SUB FOLDERS.
Please UPGRADE ;o)))
Can you make sub folder option for yahoo mail folder so we can organize mail better way. Gmail has this option.
Will Yahoo! Mail allow the creation of sub-folders within a Folder anytime in the future?
It'd be great if there were subfolders so we don't have thousands of folders we have to go thru.
I have a lot of mail folders that would be much easier to manage if I could split them up - for instance, in my "Friends" folder I could have a sub-folder for each friend. This would make it easier to find emails that I save (and I save a LOT of emails!!). Would it be possible to add this feature?
You really need to add nesting folders. One level of folders simply is not enough to organize all the emails people receive today. This is such a basic email feature. Its inexplicable that Yahoo mail does not support.
It's frustrating to have a lot of folders all relating to the same general thing but having to have them all as separate main folders which then takes up A LOT OF SPACE making it harder to find and longer strolling down the page. If subfolders were implemented at yahoo, you would have the option, using a drop down arrow, to show all of the folders under one main heading or to hide / minimize them. this would help tremendously.
I have a large number of folders. They all have emails in them. I would like the ability to move a folder into another folder. For instance, create a folder called 2012, and move all the other folders specific to 2012 into that mast folder. Then, when you go into the 2012 folder, you would see all your other folders inside it.
Where are the Subfolders or the option to move them into them. can you put it back
upport Sub-folders under Main folders in Yahoo Mail. I want to organize emails in categories. There is a valid reason why other email programs support a sub-folder feature: because it allows for much more efficient organization beyond everything living on one level alphabetically.
I am loving the subfolders in HOTMAIL!
YAHOO staff- Please allow us the ability to create SUBFOLDERS!
Hotmail gives the ability to create SUBFOLDERS, why can't YAHOO?!?!?!
There needs to be a way to organize your folders into categories and subcategories.
Why can't I make sub-folders in my e-mails - stop changing everything!
please add a feature for subfolders, I know you have been saying that this was possible over 7 years ago and its still not here. I maybe one of the few, but maybe have a business version of yahoo email that allows more functionality like the kind of features that you could get in outlook 2002. I know asking for things like current feature sets maybe out of scope. But make your email great and user freidnly again and people will start to come back to yahoo.
As it stands now, my Yahoo! Mail folder list is longer than my arm! Yahoo! seems to think that the majority of its users want fancy colors and themes which seems to be where most of the re-design is focused. WRONG! NESTED FOLDERS! NESTED FOLDERS! NESTED FOLDERS! NESTED FOLDERS! NESTED FOLDERS! Did I mention Nested Folders?
I suggest giving the ability of adding sub-folders to the folders in the inbox. I have many folders in my inbox, and it would be great to minimize the number by creating folders inside others based on their categories.
help us organize better our emails. Without subfolders, you end up with 10's or 100's of folders and it's unmanageable - and you get to develop rejection on Yahoo and start looking at other products.
So say I have a folder for clients, with that folder I can have the folders for each client and a little arrow to reveal the nested folders. Or I'm applying for jobs on a bunch of sits, I can have nested folders for the various responses, or I have e-mails from sites I belong to, linkedin, facebook, etc i can nest those by site in a master folder.
I'm using Yahoo+ for years!!
I think it's about time Yahoo will do something about the sub folders issue.
So many requests from yahoo mail users and it seems like you don’t give a…........
PLEASE give that issue the appropriate priority!!!
Sub Folders would be really nice as they same with searching as there less main folders.
As one keeps adding folkders, the list gets very long.
Scrolling to find the folder of interest becomes tedious.
Can you nest them (at least 2 levels) so that folders can be grouped into categories & the top level folder can be given a category name etc ?
This will speed up finding the right folder !!!
sub folders in yahoo mail required urgently. Also for sorting mails 3 to 4 stars of different colors are necessary. currently only one yellow star is available.
We need to be able to make sub-folders in Yahoo Mail!
Having to create a folder for anything new is wasteful and too time consuming! What is needed, is to be able to create sub-folders within folders of similar subjects! Make it easier for us folks to organize our folders/sub-folders!!
A main folder could be travel. Within the travel folder could be folders for each trip I am planning. This would shorten the main folder list while still enabling me to keep each trip in a separate folder.
it doesn't work properly, it is slow and it is impossible to use sub-folder :-(
please please please, put back the previous version that was working fine!!!!!!!!!
It would be very helpful to be able to make a subfolder in a folder for further sorting of mails.
Sulbfolder es is a highly needed facility for a good organization of mails; it is incomprehensible why you don´t put subsolder instead of adding many other facilities which are less useful. I am thinking to move to hotmail only because of the lack of subsolders.
Make sub folders or nesting available in order to better organize emails...
Subfolders? Should just be drag & drop to move emails around!!
In order to better organize my emails, I would like the ability to create a folder with sub folders within that folder. I can do that with Comcast emails. Why shouldn't I be able to do that with Yahoo Email?
As far as I can tell, Yahoo has still not addressed the sub-folder issue which has been requested for years. With all the other recent negative feedback, gmail looks like the best choice.
My folders are getting messy. I would love it if you could provide the feature to do sub folders within folders, even if it is only one level down. Thanks.
better to create new sub folders to move important or unwanted emails
would like to create sub-folders
I did switch to gmail for the option of using subfolders. I would love for yahoo to be able to create a folder then create sub folders off of the new folder.
It sure would be helpful if YAHHOO whould fix the FOLDERS to allow sub-folders. When are the going to wake up and give their users what they want?
Creating sub-folders is a fundamental email function. How can this not be available in Yahoo. I have been with Yahoo for a very long time but will likely start to convert of to either gmail or outlook.
There should be an option to Sub-Folder. For instance, I would like to make a '2013 Folders' folder, and have the option to drag all of my 2013 folders into it, so we have a fresh slate for our business 2014 without eliminating 2013's organization, and having a less clogged email folder selection.
Cannot create a new folder with your new look it is taking along time
using the old yahoo it was quick to create a new folder it seems to get worse everytime
Sub folders would also be a great idia
Some topics require sub folders in order to avoid making folder under folder under folder. This would be very helpful and clean full email.
Sub-folders are very much needed.....where is the feature?
how about sub-folders inside a folder. Makes it easier to organize!
Hi, one thing I wish Yahoo had...in the email folders, "sub" folders would be such a welcome addition. Some of us have many sub folders for one heading folder...would absolutely love it!!! thank you
I would find sub-folders SO useful so that I wouldn't have to have 40 folders open at a time and I could put old work folders in to just one folder to keep it, but neat and tidy.
In this day and age I would have thought that being able to create sub folders within folders was a basic "good practice" idea, rather than having to create numerous individual ones'!
Really is about time.....also like some of the other enhancements with themes etc.
Please introduce the option of creating sub-folders for better content organization e.g:
Many "word of the day" subscriptions could easily be organized in the main folder "word of the day lists" and then in sub-folders such as "Oxford word of the day", "Merriam-Webster word of the day" etc.
Ability to create a folder in a a primary folder
I work in a field where I organize my emails by project, it would be great to have sub folders for inactive projects or completed projects so that my list of folders isnt 100 items long and it would be much easier to find the active projects while still maintaining my organizational system.
Why can't I have sub-folders? Makes organizing things much, much easier...
i would like to be able to create a head-folder (let's say - traveling), and within that folder to create other sub-folders (let's say- spain, canada, us etc) for separate subjects within the big one.
i looked at your advice and answers and saw nothing relevant.
Sub folders make for easy organization.
I know others have said it, but it needs to be said again! I'd really love the have sub-folder capability. It would make organization so much easier!
I want to store past emails in monthly folders. This works well for a year or so, but then I want to be able to put all one year's email folders into another folder for that year, eg, all 2013 monthly folders into a single 2013 folder, in order to tidy up the folder list. It's currently not possible to move folders into folders. Please can we have this facility?!
Nested email folders feature would be nice; for clarification...the ability to add sub folders within a folder.
PLEASE OPTION TO CREATE SUB- FOLDRES
As now the existing folder box is only able to add a new folder. Is it possible to add on another sub-folder and sub-sub-folder into the main folder.
I wish to create a name list folder with my yahoo mail account,
Main folder ----- Name with alphabet A-D
Sub-folder ------ Name "Albert"
Sub-Sub-folder ------ sub under "albert" sub-folder, put all related info regarding albert.
Actually I saw this features in Gmail account.
Why is it not possible to create sub-folders? For example, I am an artist and have an art folder. Within that folder I would like to have sub-folders for different organizations or media. Not that complicated!
Have a folder within a folder. Have sub-folders within a folder. Such as Folder named "Construction Plus" Sub-folders "John Doe" and "Jean Doe"
Have a folder within a folder. Have sub-folders within a folder. Such as Folder named "Construction Plus" Sub-folders "John Doe" and "Jean Doe"
I thinking having sub-folders will allow me to archive my emails better.
At the present I have too many folders for the same reason as I require the use of sub folders
My secondary email account has the option for sub-folders. so for instance if you travel to NYC a lot, you can have one folder say NYC and then when you put the cursor over it or click on it or drag on drop something there, the sub-folders appear as well. NYC as main folder with separate spots to put info for friends, restaurants, business contacts , etc. currently i have like 50 folders and it takes forever to scroll though to find stuff because i have 8 different "personal stuff" folders for different things as an example. it would b great to have 1 main and 7 subs :)
Actually it is not that easy to put mails into folders especially using the drag-and-drop functionality.
Furthermore it could be very nice to manage emails using also subfolders (in my case I have like 40 folders..).
Yahoo needs subfolders, I love yahoo email, had to switch to Gmail which I don't care for just for the ability to use subfolders, please allow this option!
I would like folders in folders
Please bring back tabs, it's so awkward to go through emails when you have to re-enter the folder and potentially go through all the pages again to find your place. Also, we need sub-folders! Every other professional email provider has sub-folders, so why can't we!? Are we supposed to just have a never-ending list of top folders? I want to be able to break down my Personal emails into several sub-sections, but don't want them all to appear in the list all the time! Also, I use my email account to receive work emails. Due to my line of work, they can be regarding any number of thing. I don't want to have to search the entire folder just to find the relevant email.
Allow sub folders in email folders. Been a long, long time coming I am thinking of dropping Yahoo mail.
Allow subFolders like Outlook
Bring back tabs--at least as an option--Tabs and Drag and drop where yahoo's best features
Bring back drag and drop--the new version is so slow and muddled it takes longer to drag and drop than to cook breakfast.
yahoo would be much more useful for me if you could created subfolders. please!?
You really need to make it so users can make a sub-folder with a master folder.
Please URGENTLY bring back tabs, formats and attachments at the top, improve bullets and numbering, and sorting the sent folder alphabetically!!!
Also it would be fabulous if FOLDERS WERE IMPROVED to have nested subfolders at least one leven down.
Than you so much in advace!!
BRING TABS BACK.. They work on the "old" version with the new code
BRING Sort by sender/subject back.. how could you miss that was an IMPORTANT feature.. !
SEND BAR ON TOP.. ! It slow you down looking for it on the bottom. Its not the normal place for it.
ADD Sub-Folders feature already.. its a needed function unlike some of the others you added.
Last but not least make the side bar stretchable
Your previous interface was awesome, why you did this interface to copy gmail??? If I wanted that, I would start using gmail.
Please go back to the previous one or give the users the option. The only thing your all interface, (and the new one too) is missing, is the ability to create subfolders or subdirectories
I NEED S U B F O L D E R S.... LIKE GMAIL HAS PLEASE
Why and how are you still so reluctant to make the sub-folder feature? I am still trying to hold on to "yahoo" although I have an account in gmail and hotmail which both have sub-folder features.
Do you think sub-folder is a useless feature? This is a very important feature for me as well as many yahoo user that I know. Many I know is not using yahoo because it is lacking this feature. Thought you might want to know.
I have a sub folders with rules that puts some emails in the correct folder. I can no longer see these folders when I first come to my email. So I have no idea if a new email is in there or not. Right now all is see is a an icon for folders but no clue if anything is new or not. I would love to just see my subfolders under the inbox icon. not a second step with no notification if anything is new or not in those folders. Maybe there's a setting to change this? It doesn't make sense to have sub folders with no way to know if anything is new in them.
With a significant amount of emails built up over time, folders are essential...
However, it would make life much easier to be able to create subfolders.
Rather than giving a folder a prefix name of "Job-" and creating the folders "Job-001", "Job-002", "Job-003", etc.
It would be so much easier to create a root folder of "Job" and sub-folders within the "Job" folder.
This would allow heavy email users to organize emails in a much more efficient way.
I make use of my Yahoo account for personal email, and MS outlook for business email and this is probably the biggest disadvantage/difference between the tools...
We (Yahoo users) keep asking (for months now) for the capability to have folders under folders (sub-folders)... I know you've been rolling out a lot of changes, but WHEN are we going to get this feature?
I want sub folders like Outlook.
For years I've wanted sub-folders. If you can do that, I'll become a paying customer!
Suggest to add subfolder..for better organisation..folder list is too long..& cant be categorized
Good news! We have launched subfolders. If you’d like to learn more, please see this Yahoo Help article.
Thanks very much, everyone, for your feedback.
No, this doesn't work. I am using Yahoo mail full service. This is how it worked before you "enhanced" this icky mail program. Not sure what you are looking at but not the mail my friends and I use.
I apologize. the drag- folders existed clicking with the right mouse button and move to the parent folder , sorry .
Thank you so much. Only one NOTE : This should be available DRAG FEATURE .
one EXAMPLE : ALL ABOUT CUSTOMERS HAVE SIX SEVEN FOLDER . FoR join all in a single folder and seven sub -folders , I have to create a sub- folder , and move the old folder . Many folders have more than 100 pages of messages ....
Thanks in advance
Thank you!!! 15yrs and finally subfolders. Happy, happy day.
Hi Prod support,
really want to see the option to EXPAND the vertical folder-pane so that we can see the complete name of the Folders without getting into that folder...
Could you please share any thoughts when you might get to this implemented ?
It does seem to be working correctly and that's good. If it doesn't work for you try reloading yahoo mail, that worked for me.
Good to have this feature, longing to have it for good organization & continuous use of yahoo as major email browser..
Has anyone tried this today??????????? I right click on my folders and do NOT get the "subfolder" option.................
Are you going to roll this out to the AT&T version of Yahoo mail?
This is very good news!
Question - If I move an existing folder tied to a filter into another folder will the filter be updated automatically?
The problem that I just came up with is once you have added a subfolder to folder that you have you can't rename the folder. I have been changing names of folders for along time & I have looked at the instruction articles & they don't help for this
Ha. None of the described menu features are enabled on my browser (latest Chrome). Tried installing Firefox for Yahoo from the link provided on the Yahoo site, and can't access Yahoo AT ALL on that browser, let alone use this feature.
/Getting very ticked off, Yahoo./
How do I add a subfolder on a phone or without a rightclick option?
Um. I'm not getting the "Create Subfolder" menu option. Is this only supported on select browsers or something?
Okay, love the sub folders BUT...
I don't want to see what's in the folder/ sub folder when I'm "moving" a file!! The whole point of the sub folder is to be able to 'hide' it and info in it until it is needed!! Then hit the arrow to expand the folder! You're close but "NO CIGAR" !! KEEP tweaking ....
BEWARE... moving an existing folder underneath another folder BREAKS any filters you have setup for that existing folder.
Finally. HOWVER... you can't rename a main folder after you have subfolders in it.
It's about time! Thank You!
I'll let you know if I like it the way you have it set up...
thank you for doing this

Subfolders would be great to have. I have lots of folders to the left of my emails but far too many now. Would be good to break these down into subfolders under the folders. Far neater and more like Outlook.
