  1. Please revert to most recent communications at the top of the thread rather than the bottom.

    It is very frustrating to have to go through an entire conversation, beginning to end, rather than have the most recent notes at the top, when communicating. PLEASE revert to the previous thread format.

  2. Mark original text in email reply

    When replying to an email, there used to be an option to insert a '>' in front of every line of the original text. In a chat, the Yahoo support agent said this is not possible. Please add this capability.

  3. When replying to a conversation that I have already replied to, it should reply to the other party, not send the email to myself.

    If there is a conversation between me and another contact, if I receive an email from the contact and then hit reply, it sends the email to them. If I hit reply again in the same conversation so send another email before they answer, it now sends the message to myself, not the other person. That is utterly pointless. Make it so that it always replies to the other person or people, like in Gmail.

  4. Selecting, Opening a Mail, Going Back and Keeping the selections intact

    You select 50 mails, then you click a mail accidentally because the tick box is too small and then you go back. POP all your selections are gone. Please correct this. In Gmail, all selections are intact.

  5. Is there a way that I can add a Note or a Task on each email, like gmail?

    For example, I have an email, and I would like to add some notes on why I am holding that email, or why I took certain decision on that email.

    I can do that on Gmail emails, but I don't want to delete my Yahoo email, I prefer you to improve it because I love my yahoo email.

    Thank you!
    Thank you!!!

  6. Attachments are not 'attached' when email is being answered. I want attachments to be on the reply for editing.

    We need attachments to travel with the messages -- and not to disappear when a message is answered!

  7. Unable to separate threads on my iphone now. It is all or nothing!

    An email should not have to include every single thread with it to forward it. Privacy should be an issue with Yahoo! Give us the old Yahoo back and fire whoever coded this new mess!

  8. replying to thread

    When I reply to an email thread where I also sent the most recent email in the exchange, I am very clearly not intending to email myself. Please fix this.

  10. Positioning of Adverts

    Get rid of the first line advert - it obscures my first email - **** annoying!!! And this feedback appears deliberately confusing - this is second time I've tried to post feedback after going round in loops.

  11. Yahoo Mail Improvements

    1) Add forwarding email option

    2) I need to explain this in detail

       when I compose a message to a friend the email is stored in the sent folder. If I reply to that email in the sent folder the replying email is being addressed/sending to my own email address instead of replying to friend's email address. YAHOO!! Please fix this.
    

    3)Add the file size limit of 40 MB. Since other email services like Gmail and outlook has their own respective cloud storage services it is easy to share the link to the file with size more than 25mb. Yahoo…

  12. Defect report: search not working

    Search is better, but still really (really) broken. It returns a couple of threads that do NOT match the search, and misses many, many threads that do match the search.

    Which makes the prompt to "use the search feature" more of an insult than a suggestion.

  15. Remove my name from Sent Email In View mode of past emails sent

    In Sent view EVERY email shows my name - which is confusing and ridiculous because of course I sent every email - I don't need to see my name a million times and when I'm looking for an email I sent to someone it's confusing.

  18. File on computer that stores email messages?

    Please provide the name of the file that saves the email messages on local computer so they can be used for further processing.

    Does Yahoo development care about the many FREE ideas that are provided and will enhance its features as compared to other email apps ???

  20. "Unread" not updating -- Workaround clicking F5 closes all tabs

    [Using "List" layout with "Small Spacing"]
    As many stated before: The "Unread" section doesn't work.
    New Mails show up in Inbox and other folders ... yet not in Unread.
    Unread used to be my goto folder in the classic version. Now I have to click F5 to update and see if anything new is there.
    Unfortunately that closes all my other conversation tabs.
