Folder column width needs to be adjustable [or at least widened]
Without the ability to nest folders, we are forced to use longer folder names to categorize and sort mail. Recent updates have continued to narrow the width of the folder column, making it nearly impossible to tell which folder is which.
For instance, two folders named "Project-Garage" and "Project-Roof" show only as "Project...", forcing you to hover over each folder to determine which is which. This is especially cumbersome when filtering and sorting unread mails into folders, since you can no longer tell at a glance which folder has new mail.
Please allow the width of the column folder to be adjusted [or at the very least, widen it more than it currently is]. It is a shame to lose the functionality of filters, folders, and sorting because of this decision.
Thanks much for listening...
The folder column width definitely needs to be adjustable. I have folders with similar names in the beginning of the folder name and unless I hover over the folders, I don't know which folder is which.
Please gather this feedback: Why are we only allowed 10 votes on here and then we can't enter any new ideas? Why do you keep making changes that nobody wants?
An adjustable folder column and nested folders really needs to be implemented. Outlook.com has this ability.
Without question the Folder column needs to be adjustable to make it wider.
Where did you find Folders?
Elizabeth, you are talking about the email itself. The is in regards to the folder name column on the left.

I have found you can widen the viewing field by placing the cursor on the bar on the right side of the message. A message will come up that says something like, "view full message", or something like that. Then, the message goes full width. This will ONLY work if you allow their ads to remain. I subscribed to a FREE service called "Adblock Plus" through Google, that eliminates these ads without paying for Yahoo's service. HOWEVER, in doing this, I am not able to move the message bar to the right. It seems like Yahoo mail wants you to subscribe to their paid subscription to remove the ads. Another solution is to reduce your print size so that the entire message is on one pane (CTRL + the minus key). You can enlarge your print back by reversing this...CTRL and the + sign.
Yahoo, please expedite resolving this for your customers ASAP!!
Another (less than ideal) possibility would be to have a sideways-scrolling bar for that column to assist in viewing and getting to the right folder. Still, that column should simply be user-adjustable in width to suit the customers' needs.
How come most answers say Contact Customer Care or upgrade to Prime(which costs $$). Why not just fix your app back to the high standards it used to function at instead of this 'another day another issue' situtation???
gee. Has anyone noticed that all the posts here are made in RAGE with lots of !!!!!!!!!! I would hate to have this person's job. Ask for a raise.
Why would you do this when your users utilize this feature and you lop off half the folder name and then NOT ALLOW us to adjust the column? Please reverse this and give US the CHOICE!!!! I will stop using Yahoo all together.
I have the same frustration as I also have many folder names in a similar format as yourself.
