  2. inbox not showing all

    Bugfix: Inbox not having "all" email option, only some of subcategories.

    Few days ago things changed so that by default inbox shows "priority" that it seems to determine very randomly to just couple of emails, other available options are "updates", "offers", "social", and "newsletters", together these do not show even close to all mails, and other options are not available when using "inbox categories", despite settings listing "all" as one category.

    however "all" category is for some reason not shown at all in ui.

  3. Get rid of the pointless videos in the email inboxes etc

    It states that the videos posted are "the most exciting" whereas the same video about allergies has been posted for a long time. The idea of videos in inboxes is, in my opinion, a nuisance and a waste of bandwidth.

  4. Putting some new messages into inbox and some into "All Mail" SUCKS!!! It's horrible. You've ruined a good experience.

    Being able to make different folders is great. But having YOU decide which folders new messages go to is IDIOTIC!!! Yahoo Mail was simple and convenient. NOW, you are diverting some new messages into All Mail, and some new messages into Inbox. That's MORONIC!!! All new messages should go into Inbox. Then LET US DECIDE where to put them. How can I get it back the way it was?????

  5. Stop All Mail box and go back to the Inbox Mail

    The All Mail box is no good. I lost mail I had in other folders which was very important to me. Inbox show 4 messages but when I go to the inbox it is empty. Have to go to the All Mail box and then it shows. Please put me back to the old way of usaing yahoo mail.

  6. I don't think you can improve it. It is beyond insane! Suddenly I can't move emails into categories I want to keep or view later.

    Please just forward ALL the email I get from Yahoo mail to my gmail account where I will be able to organize the emails I get. What you've done is INSANITY!! I'm done with Yahoo mail.

  8. Please add a tip showing the number of Spam content.

    If you show the number of messages in the spam folder as in Inbox, nothing will be missed.

  10. security

    when I go to my email account, and click on a folder (any folder), the system automatically opens one of the emails within that folder. that is nonsense. the fact that I am checking to ensure something didn't accidentally get put into spam folder does not mean that I want things in spam to open. let me just see the contents and then I most likely will delete everything. but the system opens something I have no interest in seeing - nor do I wish to confirm to the sender of spam that I have opened it and am ripe…

  11. delete

    Either fix the 'Select All' option to really select ALL or add a choice to do this. Maintaining an active mailbox 50 msgs at a time is not user friendly. This was suggested before (2018 et al) but apparently fell on deaf ears. Almost every Yahoo mail user would benefit, as would Yahoo by freeing some storage space.

  12. Improve the layout of folders on the app

    When I click on the Folder icon bottom left on the mobile app I want to see the spam and deleted folders immediately below the inbox and drafts folders as they are the only three I use. I don't need an archive or scheduled folder so please give an option to remove them or remove them altogether.

  14. Why moving a conversation to folder also moves any "Sent" Email with it?

    Why moving a conversation to folder also moves any "Sent" Email with it? I should be able to view my Sent Emails in the "Sent" folder no matter where the actual or full conversations is moved to, whether archive or a folder. This is really bad email experience that I have to struggle to find my old Sent Emails.

  16. I fully understand how to mark mail in my inbox as spam. I also understand how mail is directed to my spam folder. The question I have is

    I fully understand how to mark mail in my inbox as spam. I also understand how mail is directed to my spam folder.

    The question I have is for a situation that is somewhat less obvious. How can I "see" a list of mail addresses that are being/would be directed to my spam folder? I.e, is there available for my yahoo mail address, a list of email addresses that will automatically be directed to my spam folder.

    Thanks in advance for your understanding and help!

  17. filters

    while using with yahoo mail filters... the filter does the job as per the criteria set to move emails from specific organization mail to a specific folder... but the thing is there is no notification alert when a new mail arrives with conditions matching the filters. I have to open yahoo mail each time to check for any new mails for the filters that i have created. A new mail notification would be great for filters !!

  18. User configurable auto trash deletion- NOT 7 days!!

    The time period for auto trash deletion should be configurable by the user. 7 days is too short. I had to stop deleting my mail.

    Why have a "complaint section" when you totally ignore every single one of them?!

  20. Can you allow a user to set up subfolders in order to better organize the folders they have created?

    I would like to create subfolders by topic so I can organize my folders. I don't know if that option already exists in Yahoo.
