  2. Autofill stopped working

    The autofill in my yahoo mail has stopped working without warning. It has happened before. How do I right it please? There seems to be no option for this on your help pages. Many thanks.

  3. COPYING CONTENT FROM EXCEL

    Please allow the user to copy/paste from source to yahoo mail and keep the format at the source. When copying from Word that has tab delimited columns the columns are no longer aligned in Yahoo mail. When copying from Excel the user should have the option of keeping the grid boxes.

  4. New Mail Format is tiring to work in. Especially forwarding with attachments

    Before, in classic mail, when you forwarded an e-mail you were given the option to change the subject directly, now you have to click on an arrow and click "edit subject" which then takes you to drafts. The problem here is, when you click on your attachment to preview it, it takes you BACK to the e-mail to preview which closes your "subject" line. If you try to edit the subject again it switches back to drafts and closes your attachment preview... did nobody test out forwarding..?

  5. Annoying ad. blocker pop-up.

    Just get rid of the annoying pop-up wanting me to pay you for blocking ads! It interferes with almost every email I attempt.
    If this persists, I shall be leaving TalkTalk. It is ruining an otherwise great service.
    Has it not occured to you that most of us who don't want ads. already have a service to stop them which, by the way, are cheaper than the service you offer!

  6. Please make it possible to send old-fashioned plain text email without fighting for it every step of the way!

    (This forum tells me to vote for an old idea instead of posting my own, but all of the ones I want to vote for are closed for comments and therefore unvoteable. Therefore, here goes another duplicate.)

    Since copy and paste is disabled in plain text mode for some supremely asinine reason, composing a plain text email in Yahoo is an exercise in frustration. The only thing worse is composing a non-plain-text email, where it constantly re-interprets what you're trying to do, moving the cursor willy-nilly to the end of the line, inserting graphics that it refuses to then remove,…

  7. Turn off, "Automatically generate a preview of links"

    The "Automatically generate a preview of links" option is turned off in "Settings", "Writing email". However a a preview picture is is being generated anyway. The picture can not be deleted. Grrrrr.

  8. change font size

    When I change font size for a response to an email, the change does not last for next response to another email. How do you make permanent change to font and font size?

  10. On such date and time, so and so wrote: Please give an option to get rid of this and go back to classic address lines

    Please give us back the option when Replying to an email, so that we can have the original format of From/To/Sent/Subject Lines at the bottom of the new email, instead of "On such date and time, this person wrote:" That might be good for conversation mode, but not good for conventional correspondence mode.

  11. Turn off link preview

    If you cannot give us a DELETE button( like before) or a way to shut OFF your auto link preview insertion then please take it OUT until you get it to work correctly! I hate it. I forget that it doesn't work, I paste a link and then it auto adds a preview I cannot get rid of so I have to start a new message all over again. So for now I am UNABLE to add a link to my messages b/c of your defective auto preview "feature"! I used to be able to delete but now I cannot.…

  12. More options when writing emails.

    It would be great to see more options when writing mail, with regards to font. Actual size (in pts.), underline, etc. Also a few more options in formatting, possibly columns with adjustable width and justification.

    Also, and this is probably something I'm missing, but how do I create and save a signature?

  14. Signature

    In some emails that I send I need to include a signature, business use. In some I don't want a signature, personal use. It would be helpful to have a icon along with the other icons below message window that would add the signature as needed. This is preferable to having to go into the settings and change the signature to "on" before writing the email then changing it back to "no signature" once the email has been sent.

  15. Reply / Reply All options when composing email

    Previously, there was a "reply to all" or "reply to sender" option in the upper right corner next to the "show/hide CC/BCC" option. This was very useful if you selected "reply" arrow but realized it was more appropriate to send to the entire group, or converseley, if you realied that it should be targeted only to the sender. You could toggle back to either "Reply to Sender" or "Reply to All", meaning you could reply to all other recipients when replying to an email you had initially selected on ly "Reply" for. Now I have to copy the text, delete…

  16. UTF-8 encoding not working on Yahoo+Thunderbird

    Since April the UTF-8 encoding does not work anymore when sending Yahoo emails via Thunderbird.
    Each Italian wovel with a stress (àèéìòù) is sent as a double question mark (??).
    It used to work until March or beginning of April. It still works with other providers emails. So please do not blame it on Thunderbird.

  20. Please provide a type size BETWEEN "medium" and "large" ...

    My type size is set to medium, but LARGE would be better for many of my correspondents. However LARGE is so big that it would annoy some of the correspondents in my "lists." PLEASE PROVIDE a "medium-large" type size, useful for older folks whose eyesight is not as acute as it once was. Thanks so much!
