  1. Is there a way that I can add a Note or a Task on each email, like gmail?

    For example, I have an email, and I would like to add some notes on why I am holding that email, or why I took certain decision on that email.

    I can do that on Gmail emails, but I don't want to delete my Yahoo email, I prefer you to improve it because I love my yahoo email.

    Thank you!
    Thank you!!!

  2. Improve the header details of the old mail while replying

    When we forward an email, we see the full header details (like From, To, Date time and subject) of the old mail. However, when we reply, only a single is shown like, "On Friday, April 12, 2019, 2:59:09 AM GMT+5:30, Yahoo Customer Care <customercare@cc.yahoo-inc.com> wrote:".
    I have raised a complaint also in this regard: (Case: 29637888) [ref:1N00000rIspJQAS:ref].

    Please check out the possibility of including this in the next version of the product. In fact, this was present in the previous version and seem to have been removed now.

  3. 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. Positioning of Adverts

    Get rid of the first line advert - it obscures my first email - **** annoying!!! And this feedback appears deliberately confusing - this is second time I've tried to post feedback after going round in loops.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Stop grouping "sent messages" together

    Suddenly my "sent messages" are all blocked together. Not user friendly.

  13. 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.

  16. stars


    1. It would be really helpful if the stars could be made different colours : Ie: if i don't want to file the email yet, and have half a dozen that I am waiting on dealing with, then to be able to 'star' them with a different colour for the 'status' of my conversations would be really handy.

  18. This is AWFUL!!!

    I cannot copy paste old mails to my new mails to reply...it runs out of room! I am only allowed a small portion of room and then it goes invisible.

    I have NO emoji's....I absolutely hate this new e-mail and will be switching...should have done it when you changed. AWFUL!!!!

  20. Yahoo chases customers away by "fixing" email interface

    Put buttons (send, attach, etc) where I can access them rather than below the accessible part of my screen, use fonts I can read on my screen, use different fonts to indicate whether an email has been opened versus one that is unread, give an indication you care about customer's needs.
