  2. Put the number of unread mails in my Spam folder

    I keep forgetting to check my Spam folder until I have to send something to it. Sometimes this is over a week, as you are pretty good at weeding things out. However, this also means I sometimes miss for over a week emails that you have mistakenly weeded out. If you put back the number of unread for the Spam folder it would remind me to check whenever there were more than a couple of emails in there, and so not potentially miss the erroneously Spammed messages.

  3. Yahoo does not show a count when putting email in SPAM folder. Emails are not SPAM.

    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.

  4. You have some serious issues with your SPAM filter

    I find emails in the Spam folder from people in my CONTACTS for ****'s sake AND from responses from people I contacted first AND from threads that already exist and that I have responded to. It is both ridiculous and serious that this is a problem, not to mention annoying and potentially embarrassing (for not getting a response to an email I actually sent) and dangerous (not getting emails from people in my contacts).

  7. 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.

  8. copy

    It would be nice to have a (Copy To:) command along with the move command. It would be nice to split the emails.

  11. What happened to spam? None in days. Some good mail goes there too.

    Why is there no spam email? None in over a week. How can I be sure no good emails are going there when it doesn't come anymore?

  14. Viewing/Searching Inbox by folder

    When I click 'Search' it gives results from all folders and the inbox with no indication of where the message "lives'.

    It defeats the purpose a bit of the search if after I've done the search I can't see where it is housed.

    It would be MUCH more helpful if instead of the results showing "yahoo" to the right of the message teaser, it shows which folder the the messages are actually in. (We already know we are in Yahoo, we don't need an extra reminder, we need folders).
