  1. Formatting, Line-Spacing, Underlining

    Formatting - current formatting copies the formatting of adjacent lines. It's difficult to over-ride this default. We should be able to easily change the formatting in each line . Line Spacing - the default is bad, annoying, and time-consuming to correct. Please make single-spacing the default. Please Add Underline to the formatting options at the bottom. I have to Compose messages in MSWord and paste them into the Mail page to avoid the struggle of Composing in YMail. Use MSWord formatting as a model, if you need ideas. Test composing on a Mail page and altering the formatting and you'll…

  5. Put Back My Send (Compose) For each email address. I DO NOT want to send ALL replies from Account Key email ONLY

    I have more than one email address and even a gmail address linked so that I can read /retrieve all emails from one place. I can no longer reply or compose emails from the other addresses. This creates a problem for me because now ALL future responses will come to the Account Key address. I don't want all the junk and unimportant emails coming to my account key inbox. This is why I have separate emails.

  6. Recipients

    When sending an email the address goes after "To". Now all the sudden after I enter the email address in "To", "to" changes to the word "recipient". Is this just to confuse us or is there some actual reasoning behind it?

  8. spacing

    Spacing should be adjustable, some people want single, double or 1.5. Let the users adjust the spacing.

  10. schedule

    It appears that the "schedule" option for sending an email is only available on the Mail for Android app. (It may be available on the iPhone version too, but I wouldn't know because I don't use Apple products.)

    Why is this not available on the desktop version?

    And why does scheduling an email require you to compose the email in the "Scheduled" folder? This should be a sending option; selecting "Schedule" and then inputting the desired date and time should then put the email in the "Scheduled" folder.

    Finally, it appears that scheduled emails also appear in the "Drafts" folder,…

  11. What to do with Yahoos inane instructions

    It's Yahoo's idea and it was displayed as I tried to compose saying:you can minimize your work area or something like that,then it displayed a "Done" which, since I read it , I was done reading. Then it said you can change back in "Settings" well, folks, there are no obvious settings!! We learn functionality through time then along comes a NEW thing to learn!! Exasperating!!

  13. Schedule Send

    Hello, I would really appreciate a schedule send function that is present on Gmail. There are often emails that I want to send out at a specific later time and am forced to use my gmail. It would be wonderful to have a schedule send, as well as a repeated schedule send option. Thank you!

  14. Attachments should be always visible at the bottom of the screen

    The current layout forces you to scroll all the way down to see if you have attachments ready to send. Sometimes this can be a long scroll with extended conversations. Whether in the Compose or Read screen, attachments should be always in view, not having to scroll to find them.

  18. Fix your email so it does not change into a white "poster board" with black block letters where I click on the email in box!

    How about returning to a regular email format instead of one that resembles a poster board with black letters.
    I can no longer reply to an email as my email changes to the poster board look of white window with black and white block letters - period. Very sterile and worthless as an email. I cannot reply ads there is not place to reply to as before.

  20. be able to create a new line when composing. have to go back to the old mail, then go to the new mail. Very frustrating.

    fix new mail so you do not have to return to original mail to insert a new line when composing, then return to the new mail.
