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...
I am wondering if it can be possible to allow users to resize the left pane (as to be able to read the names of the folders created).
Currently some of the names are truncated.
Maybe just adding an option in the settings?
Thank you for your attention
1) Suddenly, and for reasons unknown to me, my left column (Folders) is less wide and cannot display the Folder names like it did before.
2) I tried out the "View Pane right", just to see if I could use it, and now I can't find any way to eliminate this Pane.
There are many more such 'happenings' and I wonder why? Yahoo Mail used to be simple and great, but I guess your webmaster gets bored with the same old, same old. My suggestion: Leave good enough alone!
The left panel is too narrow and I cant read the names of my folders. This left panel width should be adjustable.
Folder list area needs to be adjustable. I can't read my email without using the slider bar to go back and forth. If I could make the folder list section narrower, I'd be able to see my entire email without using the slider bar.
1) the SEND button is RIGHT NEXT to the ATTACHMENT button....needs to be further apart. Many screwups sending before attaching.
2) Need to be able to SEE RECIPIENT in my email lists.... knowing an email is from ME the SENDER is not too helpful
3) the FOLDER column needs to be adjustable in width..... some of my folder titles need more space
can you make the left column with the folders wider so we can read the name of the folder. It is too narrow at the moment
Lessen width of left column that displays email folders so that the column for displaying an email is wide enough to not require horizontal
Please return the 'folder column' width option with the arrow to make it wide or narrow, so you can view the folder titles when you need more room. Sometime my folder titles are longer(width wise) than the column width, therefore I'm not able to view the info in order to choose the correct folder. Since I set up some of my folders in categories and more info after the category, it makes for a longer title. ie.: family friends - friends' name...see it's too wide for the column and I don't want to change all the categories or longer folder titles. So, please return this option for changing the folder column width. Thank you!
Thanks you very much for your feedback! Your input helps us find ways to make Yahoo Mail more useful and enjoyable for everyone. We’ll keep your suggestion in mind as we continue to make improvements. Take care!

I used to be able to widen the message pane so I could see the entire width of the pane at once. Now I have to use the scroll tab to scroll back and forth to read my messages. No other email package that I have used does this. Why in the world would Yahoo make my messages almost impossible to read? Doesn't Yahoo want people to use their service, don't they have a clue? Or are the one's in charge so far off that they just have no idea what is happening.
I also would LOVE to see the folder column widened ... for the same reasons as everyone else ... THANKS!
March 27th??? Stop working on "New Features," folks. This astute observation was answered by Yahoo March 27, 2015! Since then... a new "sub-folders" feature?? If the folder and sub-folder names can't be read because the column is fixed at such a narrow width that only the first two words of any name that one creates is visible. That is absolute torture. Why don't you just fix it. I'm no code wizard, but I do know that this fix is NOT that complicated. While twitting your digits creating new features, do you expect us to continue using numbers, acronyms and other geek tacky folder names that require having a typewritten legend taped to the monitor?
To Yahoo, Just wondering whether the "Folder Issue" is something that should be attended to as a priority? Surely, this is not a difficult thing to attend to if there is the will to do so.
As you are no doubt well aware, folder flexibility has been talked about by users for a very long time.
A solution I found to the issue is to stop using Yahoo all together and migrate all email communication to another platform. I rarely use it now and help others migrate off of it. Too many long standing issues for way way way too many years.
Yahoo, Would it really be all that difficult to attend to the "Folder Issue"? It certainly would be a welcomed feature.
With the addition of subfolders (added today 9/22/2015), folder column width NEEDS to be addressed. Folder names are now even shorter than before when they are subfolders.
What kind of moronic programmer would view the inability to view a portion of the emails as an 'enhancement'? Do you have no business analysts to review your design changes? Have you subbed out all your development to India?
Please make sidebar wider. Is it that hard to do ??? Where is the talent ???
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.
