  1. Make conversation view an option rather than default

    The thread feature is very confusing. I often need to respond to specific emails without replying to an entire thread. Email feature should include option to read and reply to emails individually with thread/conversation view as an option rather than default.

  2. Turn off grouping by received date

    Add an option to disable grouping by received date. I already have the "list" and "small" options selected to fit as many emails as I can onto the screen, but the date grouping ends up wasting as much as half the space on unwanted headers. The date is already shown in list view, I don't need groupings as well.

  3. Why can't i delete one email in a conversation thread?

    I am trying to delete one email within a conversation and it keeps deleting the entire thread. The old version of mail was way better, change it back!

  4. PLEASE, remove this highly annoying setting that puts together conversation.

    It is making email management so much complicated for nothing. Let us see only the email we receive and go to sent box if we want to see what we sent. make it simple like any other email app.

  5. I cannot copy the email address anymore... Not good.

    Doing business, I need to be able to copy a persons email address. There appears to be no way now with the new system. Not good, Yahoo. We need this in business. Why would this be taken out?

  6. Date Separation *****

    This is ridiculous. If I have only one email from each of yahoo's arbitrary time slots, my email page looks like a 6 year old missing teeth.

  7. What happened to the search email choices for "subject" and "sender"? Is less robust the new thing?

  10. Don't display the huge widget on the right when opening an email after searching sender

    When I open an email after a search, it opens a large widget on the right with info on that sender. It wastes a huge amount of space. I can collapse it, but I have to do that every time. I don't see a way to prevent this in Settings.

  11. automatic contacts in the "to" field

    When I type in an email address, I get an automatic listing of other addresses in my contact list. The old Yahoo mail was better - the automatic list was of people I regularly contacted together. Now, with the new Yahoo, the automatic listing starts with the people I most frequently contact -- but that is NOT helpful. I have various groups that I contact, and my most frequent contacts are not in all those groups.

  13. Turning OFF READER VIEW for emails

    When reading my emails, the view automatically changes to "READER VIEW". This is a big time waster as I have to change back to the normal view in order to reply or click on any links in the email.

    How do I turn off this feature: Automatically switching to Reader View when reading emails?

  14. Ads in Yahoo Mail Pro, that's fraud

    Response from Yahoo on ads in Yahoo Mail Pro:

    Hello Dave,

    Thank you for contacting Yahoo Billing.

    I understand that you are seeing ads at the top of email previews. Certainly, I am happy to help you with that.

    Yahoo Mail Pro only removes Yahoo sponsored ads from around the mailbox. It does not remove ads sent in emails from a vendor that you are seeing at the top of the email.

    If you wonder why it is showing, unfortunately, editing incoming emails is something we would never do. I am sorry if this causes any inconvenience.

    Feel free to…

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. "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.
