  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Structure of E-mail Threads

    The organization of e-mail threads needs to be restructured and simplified. In viewing the threads, it appears that a portion of one e-mail is combined with another e-mail. In my case, my e-mail was at the top of the thread and included attachments that were reflected at the bottom of the thread. There were two e-mails between mine. A portion of the most recent of those e-mails was reflected at the bottom of the earlier e-mail. Furthermore, some e-mails in a thread reflect message headers like that shown below.

  12. forwarding email

    It appears as if someone has asked for this before quite a while ago but can yahoo make it possible to forward multiple emails in one or the ability to copy and paste multiple emails in one to send?

  13. Just to get to this page was ridiculous

    This page itself is the reason your not forefront in the Homepage Business and Advertisers are running away from Yahoo. Any other Email Provider Home Page on the internet is at most a one step quick process. The truth is Your IT specialists know their formats, pages, ridiculous steps are not for security. They are to persuade giving up.

  16. reply all

    When I click anywhere in the reply box it goes Reply All by default.

    I'ts great that the Reply, Reply All, or Forward buttons are right there and easy enough to see, but I have been caught out before when I just quickly click in the box and accidentally Replied All to about 40 people when I only intended to Reply to the person in the previous message.

    I appreciate being able to click anywhere within the box (it's very efficient), but I think the default should be to just Reply, not Reply All.

  17. "select all" for selecting emails .... user should be able to use this feature within a date

    when I go to my inbox, I should be able to "select all" within a date (today) and not have to uncheck 30-60 emails from the previous day that I chose not to erase.

  20. There is no "Line" "------------------" between prior emails and you do not see who was "cc'd"; so you have to go back to the prior email !
