  4. Put back IM chat conversation as on one of the search options in the yahoo Inbox

    I had three customized Smart View folders in the Inbox of my email address to pull yahoo IM Chat conversation in the Inbox of this email address covering the period from May 2013 thru May 2015. It was user friendly to read and print in a readable format of messenger conversation from the Smart view of Yahoo mail. The display was nicely formatted with date and time on the top right hand corner of yahoo IM chat page and down the page timelines and corresponding chat conversations. I have printed copy of these conversations right from the INBOX of the…

  7. function

    Please return the features that made the old yahoo messenger so good! You have made this more like facebook messenger (which is rubbish and we dont need another one).

    1) Being able to format text and change font colour easily
    2) An easy to navigate message archive where each contacts messages are stored chronologically and searchable by message content or date.
    Am I correct in understanding that the new yahoo does save messages...but as one unsearchable big block of messages that must be scrolled through without even being able to select a date? No option to save conversations? Useless.

  8. Update Messenger

    Despite everybody hating on the new Messenger when it was launched, I was optimistic. Yes, the new messenger was missing a heap of features that the old one had, so why was I optimistic?
    Because it was clear as day that the old messenger had been dead for years. It was never updated and it was clear as day yahoo had no desire to keep it going.
    The new Messenger represented a chance for yahoo to improve messenger, to be modern, agile, and update it into a great product.

    And then time happened. And from an end user perspective, it…

  10. Alternative Quick Solution to broken Messenger Conversation Archive tool

    The Messenger Conversation Archive tool hasn’t been working the way it was expected for almost a year or so. It has been a useless tool and it does nothing other than showing blank window.

    I suggest to put back ‘IM’ as it was in the earlier yahoo classic mail version in the search engine as one of the search options while yahoo tech staff figuring out how to fix the problem with Conversation Archive tool so that users can search the new and old IM chat conversations and save it as Smart View and view their conversation in the Inbox…

  12. Yahoo voice would be a really handy tool in this messenger

    The older versions had Voice along with chat rooms and away to add people on their list on the messenger by applying their email address which has proved to be better by far compared to the new messenger the way it is now adding people to any list is a great chore, basically this messenger is not inviting at all.

  13. Why can't we get an alert when we receive a message from one of our contacts? Is it really that difficult to fix that?

  15. NEW YAHOO MESSENGER SUCKS!!!

    How dare you call this a messenger, I have had this since the day I had to download it, because you said the old one wasn't going to work after a certain date. But since that date, I haven't even seen anyone online. So either this new Yahoo messenger doesn't work, or you got rid of the ability to see when a friend is online. Either way this is the worse Messenger program I have seen, and haven't been able to use since downloading. Bring back the old style messenger like most of the other messenger programs are like. And…

  16. How about someone from Yahoo actually responding to the mountain of venom towards messenger

    Dear Yahoo. (Assuming Yahoo still exists by the time someone reads this. Unlikely given the clear path to self destruction Yahoo is traveling and the apparent lack of attention these suggestions get)

    The sheer volume of well earned hate directed at Yahoo, and in particular towards the new messenger. should warrant some comment from Yahoo. Customer recovery is part of any good business's mode of operations. And, clearly, there is a lot of customer recovery to do. The same "top issues" have been here for well over a year yet none have been addressed by improvements in the product and…

  17. Reactivate the old Yahoo messenger app

    I forwarded this to Tim Armstrong the new CEO Verizon has installed to oversee both AOL and Yahoo under the Oath banner. The thing which continues to amaze me is that the old AOL messenger, AIM, is still up and running virtually unchanged from what it was 10 years ago. Compared to the old Yahoo messenger from 10 years ago, it was functionally useless as it still is today but it exists while the old Yahoo messenger it could not even come close to competing with is no longer available.

  19. Yahoo decides which language which is very irritating. It also offers NO way 2 change the language which is stupid. I'll have to uninstall

    Add an option for language download, instead of deciding what language I speak due to the area I am in.
