  2. It is a bad bad bad idea to force people to add the extension!

    I was suggested to add the extension so the ad on e-mail margin would disappear. I clicked Maybe later and no matter how many times I click the upgrade button remains. It is a bad idea to force an upgrade. I am a 20 plus year user but still rather not use Yahoo Mail than being forced into any type of action.

  5. Quit trying to change things that were working.

    Do away with the message asking to show original message. Now instead of just selecting the message you have to do another step of selecting on the show original message. When will you guys ever learn? If something is working "DON"T" change things!!!

  6. Hate the new format. It is very hard to find attachments. When you control "attachments"emails without attached docs come up

    I agree with another user: You should be able to click on the attachment paperclip and it should take you to the bottom of the email. That's how the old email worked. It's a pain in the button to have to scroll to the bottom of an email, especially if it's a long one with many forwards. This is a very common thing too, so it's very irritating to have to do it

  7. If you have checked a ton of emails to get rid of and then you click on one to open, the others should remained checked for deletion.

    Please make it so that if you have checked emails in your inbox and then you (inadvertently) click on one to open (instead of delete), please keep the others checked for deletion. Having to recheck the boxes is annoying.

  14. Please allow me to change the width of the columns. The Mail Folders column on the left is too narrow.

    Please allow me to change the width of the columns. The Mail Folders column on the left is too narrow. I keep trying to grab the edge and make it wider so that I can actually see the names of my folders. That would relieve a lot of annoyance on my part. Thanks!!

  15. Deleting emails:

    Previously, when deleting a group of emails at once, upon clicking on the box above the upper pane, Yahoo mail would automatically check 50 emails at-a-time - only - for deletion. This was good for two reasons: 1. It kept the user from having to delete one email at-a-time when there were dozens to be deleted, and 2. It kept the user from automatically checking ALL of the emails in their inbox for deletion at once. Please set up the new Yahoo mail with the same default 50-email checkbox.

  17. 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.

  20. Search function doesn't work.

    After entering keywords in the search box, the results always come up with "An error occurred while trying to fetch the items in this list," with an option to "Retry" that similarly doesn't work. This occurs whether searching for mail, photos, or documents. It has ever only ever worked for me once out of maybe 20 search attempts.
