  1. Mail

    When I get an email, any email, I sometimes reply or forward it right away; I sometimes put off replying or forwarding. When I go back later to review my emails I want a marker on my emails telling me if I have replied, or if I have forwarded this email or that email. It seems to me that an earlier version of Yahoo Mail put a marker, such as a forward arrow or a reply arrow, on the line of each email, telling me if I have done anything with that particular email. With current Yahoo Mail, my forwards…

    Thank you for your idea. Please note that you can see whether you have forwarded or replied to a mail via the indicator to the left of the address. If a mail is unread, this indicator will be a blue dot; if a mail has been read, the blue dot will disappear; if a mail has been forwarded, you’ll see an arrow pointing right; if an email has been replied to, this will be indicated by an arrow pointing left.

    Note, we have edited this post to remove your email address. Please be careful not to share any personal information (such as email your email address) in a public forum.

    Thanks!

  2. Problem with right-to-left languages

    Persian (Farsi) is a right-to-left language and must be right-justified. But all conversations are left-justified by defaults. This problem was solved in gmail a long time ago.

  3. subject search doesn't fully work, misses most messages

    I've noticed this getting worse. When I enter a search term like "subject:***" that the messages retrieved never fully match what I see in the inbox. Really odd for a company that started out as a search engine. I can't imagine how hard it is to do a string match on a subject line, but apparently Yahoo Mail has a lot of trouble with it.

  4. there should be an automatic filter like gmail is providing viz. primary, social, and promotional etc.

    there should be an automatic filter like gmail is providing viz. primary, social, and promotional etc. so one can easily sort the mails received.

  5. Change how you select individual e-mails to delete/move etc.

    Instead of a tiny checkbox that you have to precisely click on, how about an easy drag option? Or make the checkbox way bigger. Or have it so that you can click on the blank part of the thread to select it, instead of having it GO TO the thread. Tired of selecting 50+ things, then accidentally clicking on a thread and having it undone.

  8. It seems silly to me to go back to an original message to reply. Why would I reply to myself? This has been the most maddening thing.

    Make it easier to reply to someone rather than having to go back to an original message between two recipients. It makes no sense that I would reply to myself. Please fix this. It truly is ridiculous!

  10. while forwarding messages, the forward lines need to be removed as its automatically changing the format of the message

    i would prefer forwarding messages without forward lines which usually comes beside the typed message. so kindly give options for clients to remove such lines in settings.

  11. I would like to see all my comments,arranged from the newest to the oldest.

    After the first 10 or so comments, my old and new comments are all mixed up. In Malaysia, after the recent chage of government, it's important that our comments and suggestions are all seen by the new government ministers.

  12. Intrusive message on top of my mailbox cannot be removed and has an expiry.

    Intrusive message on top of my mailbox cannot be removed and has an expiry. I refuse such unsolicited email coming into my mailbox. If it persists I cancel my account with yahoo. It is impossible to tag it as spam, delete.

  13. single line e-mails, columns that are sortable, preview on right

    I'm tired of posting this every year. We all just want maximum space efficiency, to be able to see lots of e-mail (sortable) and see a decent preview pane of the selected e-mail. There is already an answer and has been for years. Just look at old fashioned outlook. Sortable columns, one line e-mails, and preview on the right... and please remove all the dead space at the top while you are at it... however I fiddle about with the settings I can only see 8 e-mails at a time without scrolling...in Outlook on this laptop I can see 28…

  14. Ability to Move One Email in A Conversation to a Folder

    You keep squashing this suggestion, but huge numbers of people would benefit by it.

  15. Don't show mail content in mail list. Subject is enough.

    Please remove the private message from the mail list. It should be able to read only after opening a mail.

  16. Option to delete forwarding messages in thread.

    First email on which I was forwarding had error. New email with correction was being forwarded (draft mode), I deleted the original . When I checked the draft, it had the orignal also which is confusing. I should be able to delete earlier forwarding messages.
