        If you do not bring this back I will delete my yahoo mail account and never come back. This is BS that you have it there and never told anyone. Do you need a class action law suit against you for motivation? You may win it but how many people will keep their accounts once they know you are keeping it? it's up to you.

        Why in the world did you delete my mailbox. I was in it last week. I have given that email address to my healthcare provider. Do you just delete mailboxes when you feel like it? Now I have to give the new dam address to everyone again. I have work email and I am in IT and I work alot of hours so leave my account alone!!!

        When you forward an email with an attachment or something to someone else all of the previous emails from the client shows and that is confidential info possibly and shows up on the side that it's from the other client when in fact it's from the newer client and when you scroll down through the message history you see that all of the email can be seen by a new person you don't want to see it. Yahoo should change it so that only the email you are forwarding goes to other person - not the whole history! Many times personal info gets sent or people can read everything!!! This is bad!!!!

        I agree I do not like the new at all. Give me the older version back NOW please!!! I am thinking of leaving after being with Yahoo for years. It's difficult to see which have been read or not (bring back two strong like black and pale colour for read and not read. Don't even like the way the e-mails are for reading now either, please just give me the old layout back. Don't like having no arrow top and bottom of screen to scroll up and down either, much easier than now. Everything about the new screen and workings are yuk! Honest, I am on the verge of leaving, I see other people feel the same, why do you impose this on us when we don't like it. Many people don't know how to get in touch with Yahoo, you don't make it easy but if you did, I'm sure you would hear much more from users, maybe that's why we can't contact you direct, at least I can't find it, this is where I ended up this morning after searching to contact you direct. There's no shame in going back to the old ways, most of the time, the old ways can be much better. Please don't ignore the comments, it's us that are using it, if everyone voted with their feet and left Yahoo Mail, where would that leave you? There are too many complaints to list, but none with the old system. Give me my old screen back PLEASE, PLEASE! OLD VERSION Please!!

        I have the same problem. Although snippets are turned off in Settings and do not appear in the message list, they now appear in Search results with no apparent way to turn them off.

        Why is it we can no longer delete mail in spam or regular mail. This new mail sucks and yahoo. you need to bring back the old. The new is not working. I have not been able to delate any of my emails in my inbox or spam. This needs to be resolved. How many others of us out there are having this same trouble. This is getting old. it take nearly an hour just to go through and delete thirty emails at a time. Yhaoo please get rid of this new email system and bring back the old. YOu have destroyed your client list. because if this is not resolved soon many of us will leave and find another email. I have been with you for years now and this has been the worst of all worst.
