      • ads

        I don't have an issue with the ads. heck, every now and then I click on them. However, the double ads on the right panel seem to take forever to load. I can be right in the middle of typing an email, an ad starts to load, and my typing is stopped. Same for reading. Something that takes me seconds on other mail platforms takes many minutes of frustration to perform. I have 75/75 Mps Internet Speed. Reading/Responding to emails should not be such a chore.

        • Why is the delete button all the way to the end of the row?

          Bring back the delete mail button in front of the subject. Who clicks to the end of line???
          I constantly have to delete mails and it;s annoying

            • Inefficient use of space

              The blue area at the top, with the search bar and the yahoo logo takes up a lot of space on the screen. Also, the list of folders on the left are spaced too far from each other. The result is that my email folders aren't visible to me without scrolling down whenever I want to see them. Seems that making better use of the screen would allow more folders to be visible.

              Another option would be to allow swapping the order of folders and views (views below folders.

                • Bring back the blurred backgroud picture options

                  The background color options are good but it would be nice if we have that blurred picture background as it was in the Yahoo Mail classic.

                    • Allow for customization on styles and colors

                      It would be interesting to customize your own backgrounds and colors for the words and fonts and to be able to put your own pictures as backgrounds as well.

                        • When choosing individual emails to move to folders, do not have the folder list automatically start at the top again

                          When sorting through emails individually and moving them to folders, if you move an email to a folder, then read and select another that pertains to the same subject, you then have to scroll through all the folders to choose the same folder. It was easier when the folders list stayed in the same part of the list.

                              Thank you for your post.

                              We have just launched themes for New Mail Beta. You may access them through the settings (in the upper right). Also to note, you have 3 layout options for the themes:

                              - Just across the top
                              - Across the top and sides
                              - Across the entire page

                              Have fun trying the new options. We look forward to hearing what you think.

                              We will be keeping this idea open for the read receipts suggestion.

                              Thank you!

                                    Settings should have a default "sort" order and the user should be able to change it.

                                        • Provide a Clear "Print" Button

                                          Why does Yahoo hide the "Print" command? A print button button should be right up top, along w/ the Delete, Archive, etc
