    Yahoo does not show a count when putting email in SPAM folder.
    Emails are not SPAM.
    If an email is put in SPAM, let the user know there is an email in the SPAM folder, otherwise over time the email will be deleted by YAhoo.

  2. Come on guys! Get calendar reminders out of sent folder

    So around April 1, Yahoo decided to have email reminders from the calendar appear in the sent folder? for the first time in 25 years? My goodness. Don't your customers love innovation & improvement /s. Why do you guys constantly ***** around with what's satisfactory?

    p.s. Anytime you want to display new email in our spam folder, that'll be great!

    p.s. And ANYTIME you want to let us alphabetize our lists, that'll be great! How many more years will be have to wait for something so basic?

  6. Folder-specific Notifications

    Environment: Yahoo! Email app - Android
    Issue: No way to receive notifications for emails in subfolders
    Idea: Add an option for each subfolder to enable or disable notifications

    I believe I saw similar feedback on here in the past, but it was closed with no response.

    My biggest complaint right now is that I get a lot of a certain type of email that I would like to sort into a folder rather than being mixed with the general Inbox, but if I have a rule to send it to a folder, I don't get alerted when they arrive.

  9. OK, something simple!

    How about this:
    * If we send an email to ourselves, our inbox says it's from us.
    * If an email arrives to us generated by our calendar, it says, "Yahoo Calendar" like IT USED TO!
    My goodness.
    You make all these changes like you're flipping a coin.........do you guys consult ANYONE? your customers? your spouses? ANYONE before making annoying/useless changes. smh.

  11. Problem Drag & Drop Emails from inbox to other folders

    With the amount of Default folders [Unread, Starred, Drafts, Sent, Archive, Spam, Trash] + Folders (Custom Created) [Family, Work, Health, Vacation, etc], (very reasonable amt of folders) a vertical scroll bar is required to navigate to them all.
    The problem is anytime you want to move an email from Inbox to a folder which requires that vertical navigation bar to scroll down, everything gets slippery, it gets hard to put your email ontop of the target folder when it's involuntarily scrolling up and down and we're unable to control that.

  12. No Indication mail is in SPAM Folder, happening for over a year

    No Indication mail is in SPAM Folder, happening for over a year.
    Started around the time of the merger.
    Also, due to many separate post about the issue, rather than meagering them, the issue does not get address.

  14. move to folder response number does not work

    once we search with the search button next to a recipient in the inbox, then 'select all' the mails with the select all button and move it to a specific folder, the response might say 25 mails moved or 175 mails moved, but actual moved mails might be 5 or 10. the number of mails moved actually needs to be corrected

  16. Sent Items Folder

    Currently when a message is sent to multiple recipients and their reply is deleted from the Inbox, the original message is also deleted from the Sent Items Folder. Please change Yahoo Mail so that ALL original sent items remain in the Sent Items Folder.

  17. folders

    Folder (part of sub folder is being tagged) name must be tagged to massage and all massages must remain in inbox or sent items as received and sent.

    It can be designed to come on top of massage bar and
    plzzzz give options to give colors to folders......

    It would be very helpful to remember that after tagging if some action remains on e mail massage can be taken after some time/or day

    message moves to folders and .............i forget.....

  18. Folders

    1 - Automatic Folders:

    I think the Folders feature is good, but it can be enhanced with one important upgrade.

    All incoming and outgoing emails (Sent) should be allowed to be sorted into a Folder - to an automatically suggested Folder or manual menu selected Folder. Automatically suggested Folders would be based on the history of the senders' past placement in Folders.

    I use the menu to sort incoming emails, but it is a hassle to go back to Sent emails to sort to a Folder after sending.

    2 - Sub Folders:

    We need sub-folders. That is Folders within Folders.

  19. filter

    Frustrating that building a new filter, there's no option concerning "Mark As Read". It just marks all incoming filtered messages as read. I have no idea these new messages have arrived and are piling up!!

    Please add this as a check-box.
