  1. We should be able to delete PART of an email thread. Right now, it's either delete the ENTIRE thread or keep all of it!

    I like the previous method where you can DELETE certain emails in the same thread and KEEP others without having to delete the ENTIRE thread.

  2. attaching files from the document to any mail

    Hi Team,

    Please give the options to attach the files from the document folder when we are replying to any conversation. What is the idea of having documents on web if the mailbox does not allow them to be attached to the on going conversation.

  4. Very confusing - misleading sent/received email

    When forwarding an email to one person, if you go back to the main inbox/sent interface it lists the previous emails involved. Therefore it appears as if you forwarded the email to all other other email addresses, not just the ONE you intended to. and the only way you can see who you forwarded it to is if you click the email and scroll down to look at the "FROM/TO" portion.
    Please fix this, it is very misleading. I just go off the phone with customer support about this, and she agreed that it does look misleading and has caused…

  5. Allow us to distinguish off-topic emails from a Conversation

    "Group by Conversation" is excellent for reading, but doesn't allow for separating off-topic replies. Please provide a "Remove from Conversation" option in each email's "More" menu.

    A less-desirable workaround: move the "Group by Conversation" switch to the quick Settings drop-down, where the "Message Tabs" toggle is now (does anyone need to toggle that on and off all the time?).

  6. What and Huh, Yahoo?! Functionality and ease worse than ever

    Why Yahoo? Every time you upgrade, functionality, ease of use and efficiency gets worse!! There is now a big space defaulted into the email body so when you copy already formatted content, like from Microsoft word, there is a huge space between paragraphs. This also happens when just typing directly into email. In this age of mobile phone and small screens, why are you making us have to scroll down twice as long now to see the message!! Stop formatting style into your email and let us choose spacing, etc …. And, why would you move the functions (Archive, Move,…

  7. 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.

  8. Please simplify the senders list


    1. Who needs logos there ?

    2. If I need to forward a message to a list, when you delete a name in the list, it was much easier to be moved automatically to the next name in the list.

  9. "Mark as unread" Undone

    "Mark as unread" Undone when auto moving through emails. I don't like this, some emails I want kept as Unread, and if I accidently scroll through the list they get Marked As Read again. This was a departure from the old style, please bring it back and go ahead an fire the imbecile that changed it.

  10. 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.

  11. Attachment

    While sending mail we attach document. If we have to open & check it before sending it we are unable to do it. Previously it was allowed.

    If you’re not getting emails from a specific sender, it may be because they are sending to the wrong address or they are getting an error message when sending to you. If this is the case, you will need to have them reach out to our Postmaster department to try and get it fixed. You can also double-check your Mail settings and Spam folder to make sure everything looks good there.

    If you feel your emails are getting delayed, check the headers to see where the delay is. You may need to use a header analyzer online if you’re unfamiliar with reading headers.

  14. Stop linking email strings together.

    It is incredibly irritating to try to respond, delete, find or do anything with a single email when the string is presented together as a single item. No other email service does this...for a good reason.

  15. Move buttons back to top

    Move the Reply and Forward buttons (and other options) back to the top. It is beyond silly to force me to scroll to the bottom of a thread just to click Reply.This is just the dumbest of a myriad of bad decisions made in designing this new layout. The whole thing was better two revisions ago.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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!
