  1. mail new tab

    When I click on the mail icon in the upper right corner of the Yahoo homepage it opens the email page in a new tab. It's annoying to have a new tab open every time I go to check my email.

  2. Yahoo email recent changes

    Yahoo Mail Plus subscriber (since it became available), and Yahoo mail member since the day accounts became available in October 1997 here...

    I used to be able to send an email to archive with "d" "e" - why did that go away?? The command wasn't replaced by any other action and requires me to use my mouse to click "archive" rather than using my keyboard.

    Also, since your recent change, after clicking a link to open a new tab I need to use the mouse to click "delete" instead of just hitting my delete key. Why would you do this??

  3. Why do I have to repeatedly verify my access to my email? Sometimes thre or more time a day!

    I have to verify my identity everytime that I open my Yahoo account using my computers browser. Sometimes three or more times in a day even if I leave the tab open. This is becoming very frustrating to me. This has been going on for over a month now. what's the fix?

  6. Contact list sorted by last name

    How about this radical new idea? Allow the contact list to be sorted by last name! I'm 75 years old and have never seen a personnell directory sort only by first names. Have you ever heard of a phone book? Everybody had one in their home who had a telephone from about 1920 to 2015. Go to a library and you can actually look at one and see it it totally organized and sorted by LAST name! How about assigning on of your hot shot computer gurus to add a line of code to allow sorting contacts by last name?…

  7. I would really like to choose which US holidays are shown on my calendar.

  11. Recipients v. To

    Forever the "To" field was a constant in Yahoo Mail. Simple. To the point. Now when you click elsewhere, the name of the field changes to Recipients.

    Why the change? Why use a $1 word when a 5-cent word works?

    The changing back and forth is a odd, annoying UX thing as well.

    What prompted the change?

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

  12. I frequently copy email addresses. Every time I do so I have to switch back to the Basic mode. Is there a more direct way to do it?

    I frequently copy email addresses. To do that I have to switch to Basic Mail and then switch back to Yahoo Mail. Would you put back such a basic function in Yahoo Mail?

  15. move download icon back to bottom of page.

    evidently an update moved the download icon to the top of the page. This is not an improvement, I would request that you move it back to the bottom of the page.

  16. Change purple circle notifying of new emails back to red

    It used to be that when a new email came in a red circle would pop up partially covering the blue mail icon at the top right of the home page. Now it's purple and much harder to see. I would like you to change it back to red.

  18. Do you even have a spam filter? I spend a lot of time every day deleting spam.

    Not only do I get way too much spam, a lot of the spams come in two at a time and are duplicates of prior spams that I marked as spam. What happened to your spam filter?

  20. Why has my email with ads not loaded properly for days?

    Your ads on the right side of the page no longer load, so neither does my email completely and will not work properly without them. It's been days now. When will this correct itself?
