  2. Allow subject changes when forwarding conversations!

    You have taken away my ability to change the subject when forwarding or replying to an email. I often have to forward one email to several individuals that would require a different subject for each, and can no longer do that. I also often reply to one email several times with different photos, different information, and can no longer edit the subject to reflect what updates I am including. It is extremely frustrating when you "improve" something by taking away basic, necessary functionality.

  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. "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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. YOU CAN IMPROVE IT BY REMOVING IT-KEEP THE OLD, OUT WITH THE NEW!

    DO NOT CHANGE YOUR E-MAIL FORMAT! IT'S FINE THE WAY IT IS. I HATE THE NEW FORMAT.

  9. put my replies at the top of my reply/forward e-mails--not at the bottom. Every other e-Mail system makes this user selectable

    Choosing the sort order of a conversation/thread is user select-able in other e-mail systems--why not yahoo? .

    Why should I -- or anyone -- scroll to the bottom of an e-mail thread in order to reply to it?

    This is a regression error. I used to get my e-mail thread in reverse chronological order--bring it back, or at least give me a choice.

  10. The Thread conversation is confusing .

    Please make a simple flow of conversation . The whole reply, forward, send is not as easy to figure out and does seem everywhere you get confused on what thread you are or should respond to . what is worse is once you go back you have to find that thread.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Allow splitting one message out from a Conversation

    This is valuable because huge numbers of people send replies that are off the original topic without changing the Subject field.

  19. Stop improving it - go back to a working version! This one sucks more than Trump!!

    Entering a sender's name to search and it gives me a whole bunch of different senders as well as the one I needed. Then I have to go through each one if I am deleting rather than bulk delete. Are your developers from non-English speaking countries who don't know what to do? I know its a free app but after using it for almost 20 years I am getting ready to dump it and start with another email client. Very frustrating you guys!!
