  4. Keep Yahoo Classic Email or myself & others will leave in droves

    I am getting prompts forcing me to leave Classic Yahoo Email. I Strongly Advise You to Allow All of Us To Keep The Classic Format that we prefer. If you do not, you will Lose Customers in Massive Droves.

  5. You're forcing an email upgrade to a lessor product. You have not stated why.

    Why the useless right-hand space?
    You have not provided the reason why you're forcing an upgrade.
    Remove the right-hand bar, and I'll upgrade.

  6. Contact lists: Do not add in contacts that have the same name but different contact info. Just have the ones I added.

    Contact Lists: Please bring back the feature that counted how many contacts are in the list. Also, in the new version, there were two contacts missing from my list, and four or five contacts that had been duplicated, with either different email addresses, or just phone numbers. I had to delete those extra ones, and add in the missing ones. Very annoying.

  7. Make contact lists that go in alphabetical order and can be printed again

    The contact lists are no longer in alphabetical order. It is so much easier to navigate email lists when they are alphabetical, seems to be the first thing that would be set up.

    There is also no simple way to print email lists in the new mail system. The old system was so much better.

  8. turn off tabs of every opened email

    stop creating tabs for every email I open. It is stupid, useless and annoying to have all these tabs running across the page taking up space and doing nothing. USELESS FEATURE. Can't close them and make them go away. This is a stupid useless feature

  9. CONTACTS ACCESS TO LIMITED NEAR IMPOSIBLE TO USE

    I have 100's of valuable business contacts and personal details loaded into my Yahoo Contacts. A recent Yahoo mail change has made the info near impossible to use. The notes area was bad before the change. Now with the change the notes are not visible without following and scrolling one single line forever. The old method Yahoo had we were able to see all the details on one page.

  11. Editing Email

    When proofreading email prior to sending, you need the ability to change ONE word if necessary. The way it works now, you have to retype EVERYTHING after the one word. In other words, if I type "how are you, hope you have a good day" and I want to change the one word "you" to "Lisa", I have to type Lisa, hope you have a good day.

    If there are three sentences after the one word, you have to type all three sentences again. Really:

    You can edit one word in word and need same ability in email.

  13. Pop up that asks if I'm sure I want to delete an entire email while typing the email....

    I got a new HP computer and while typing I somehow hightlight and delete though I have no idea how it happens. Can you please have a pop-up that says "are you sure" you want to delete this entire email? As it turn out, even in "drafts" it is no longer there. My fingers are moving too fast and I don't know how this HP is different but it's happening a lot and it's making me crazy. Thank you!

  16. I am wondering if you can direct emails to go directly to a folder. I would like my job emails to go to company name folder.

    I am trying to forward the emails from my job into a folder that has the company name. Such as @ipsos.com would go into the folder IPSOS. Is this possible?

  18. "Assign to List" not working.

    When I Assign a contact to a mailing list, while thier contact info shows them assigned, many hours have passed and when I open the list they are not in it. Please fix. I somehow managed a work around and eventually got a person onto the list but now it's happened a second time and I am not having success. This needs to work.

  20. Deals View

    Instead of having such a big area for deals view on some of our email...why not have a small icon that allows people to use as a deal saver and continue their view at Deals View? Why is such a big banner needed? If advertisers have quality items, it will sell and people will remember to return to them time after time by using a bookmark or so.
