Sub folders!

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.

        Thanks 4 bringing back the subfolders on the left!!
        now just fix the trouble of when we move one message to a folder we have to refresh the page to move the next one this started when you last did a big change so the contract company has to fix it

        I see there's many many feedbacks here, but till now, we couldn't have used sub-folder function yet

        Over the last 3 days, I have had to change my access codes 5 times and the next time I try to access my Email, I have to change my access code again. All I want is my mail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Danny IsenhowerDanny Isenhower commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Does anyone there care enough to call a costomer when they have a problem. I appears not, as you do not have a customer support phone number. Not everything can be done on computers, when your computers are f--ked up!!!!!

        Pois eu tenho as subpastas no yahoo na esquerda da tela ,mas o novo yahoo não me deixa mais classificar meus clientes, virou uma confusão. Tambem não consigo mais enviar email para um grupo

      • RogerRoger commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This seems to be fixed now. Wow someone does listen... Yeaaaaa
        Nice work Yahoo

      • Tufan GungorenTufan Gungoren commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I, too, agree. Subfolders would be very helpful.
        Especially if you have more than 10 years' communication arranged under more than 50 folders, as I do.

      • DashGandhiDashGandhi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Subfolders would be a good addition. But would be more useful (even just Folders & No Subfolder) if we can mark a particular incoming email id as belong to a particular Folder(or Subfolder) & somehow those incoming mails directly going to the specified folders.
        I can see the problems of how to inform about new arrivals, but then you great people can find out some way for it, I am sure.

      • Belinda EastmondBelinda Eastmond commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree. Subfolders would be very helpful. The always-up list should show the main folders, and clicking a folder should bring up a list of its subfolders.

        I agree 100%. This is the main disadvantage of yahoo mail . I finally overcome , in a way , this problem by accessing my yahoo mail account using my new I-PAD .
        So , when I want to create a sub-folder , I do it from my I-PAD .

      • Carl KunstmannCarl Kunstmann commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree completely. For example, I get emails from my children. I save them in a "Family" folder but having sub-folders would allow quick organization. Mostly, I get pictures of kids and grandkids and having them separated allows quick lookups when needed. Gmail has it for heavens sake. But who wants to use Gmail if you can avoid it????

      • RachaelRachael commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Either subfolders are needed or tags like gmail, which have the advantage of allowing inclusion in as many categories as are relevant and are readily searchable.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        VERY inconvenient without subfolders. Why are you trying to drive us to a different email vendor?
