          • 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!!

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Please add back in the ability to delete a bunch of email using the check box above the list of emails.

                  When looking at my full list of emails there is a check box above them. You check that box and it checks off a page of emails which you can then hit delete and delete them all at once. This no longer works. I can check that box at the top, it checks all the emails, but when you hit delete, it only deletes the first email. Super frustrating. Now I have to sit and click the boxes one by one and god forbid you hit just outside a box, it unchecks all the others and opens that email! Ugh.…

                  • 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!!!

                        • 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.

                          • Mark as read

                            Classic mail allowed user to choose email to remain unread until purposefully marked as read. There was an option in the settings for this that has been removed. It is very helpful to ensure a message is not automatically marked as read because it was highlighted. These messages can be easily overlooked.

                              • 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

                                        • 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
