  1. Multiple email addresses to the same filter

    For each filter that you make, there should be a way to enter multiple emails into the "From" and "contains" to the same filter. With a comma or semicolon, perhaps, like when you place them into email messages? I spoke to a chat guy and he said that it cannot be done. This is very tedious to have to create 16 different email addresses to go to the same filter. Please advise if there is a way to do this. Thank you!

  3. Views Folder

    Hello,

    one improvement that would be useful is the ability to delete all documents from the 'Views' folder. While it is a useful feature, I am a little apprehensive about the security aspect of not being able to permanently delete documents from this folder. If you can implement that security option, it would be an improvement. Thank you.

  6. move

    too many feedback messages to go through to see if any is the same as mine, so: in the 'classic' version, if you typed (a part of the) folder's name in 'find a folder', it would show the (sub) folders which contained the letters/word you typed, as it does now, but it would also show the name of the main folder, to enable you to choose the right folder if you named a sub folder identically

  7. Show exact number of emails in Inbox

    I hate that no even the Inbox folder is showing 999+ instead of the exact number if you have more than 1000 emails. Please reinstate the exact count!

  8. Please highlight the folders with unread emails

    Only a number next to the folder showing there are unread emails. However the folder itself is not highlighted. Would be good to highlight/bold the folders to make them standout.

  9. disappear

    I usually look in my Unread folder to see all my new email in one place. I view and then delete or move each email. When I get to view the last email in the Unread folder, the content of the email flashes on the screen then disappears and my Unread folder is empty. I can find it in the folder where it originated, but sometimes it is difficult to locate. This only happens on my PC (Windows 7), not on my Samsung Galaxy S8+

  10. create folder when in email

    when reading an email & wanting to file in a folder, if the folder has not been created you must go out & create the folder then go back to the email to move it to the newly created folder. You should be able to create a new folder from the email view or when in the email.

  11. folder management

    Need better folder management tools including the ability to 'move' a folder with all its contents and subfolders (preferably with drag and drop), and rename a folder that contains subfolders, and archive entire folders with structure intact.

  12. How do I move the VIEWS below FOLDERS?

    As above. VIEWS are just in the way. How do I move them out of the way?

  13. Need to Sort in descending order

    Years ago before you removed the sort arrows (which I still miss, I hate having to drag the scrollbar), we could sort any folder in both ascending (the default) and descending order at the click of a buttom. Why you ever removed such a useful feature I don't know but please bring it back. What makes you think that whatever we are looking for is always going to be in the top half of a long list of messages? Having to drag and drag the scrollbar to find the bottom is ridiculous. Bring back the ability to sort in descending…

  14. Create icon in every folder and have the ability to change color

    It would be nice if every folder and subfolder had an icon and we have the ability to change its color.

  15. Moving of folders

    Could you add an option which allows to move a folder into another folder (as a subfolder)?

  16. The folder filing system is not very good. You can create folders, then sub-folders, but can not use the same name in a subfolder. For exa

    The folder filing system is not effective. You can create folders, then subfolders and then subfolders. However the second subfolder can not have the same name. For example Home/lawn/2018 can be created but when trying to create Home/house/2018 you can't create the second 2018. Makes it impossible to file messages from the same year into different categories. I believe this option used to be available but has been removed in recent weeks.

  17. automatic folders

    Automatic folders please. When I have more than three unread messages from the same sender, I would like a folder to automatically be created and all messages from that sender will be put in there from that moment forward.

    I receive many emails from various businesses where they have sales on products. Right now I have over 1,000 unread mails, the majority being these sale emails. I don't keep up with them as I am not always in need of something from a particular store.

    And I NEED a place for them to go and be stored, where I can…

  18. Subfolders

    Please, please find a way to have subfolders visually distinct from folders. Maybe it's difficult with the drop-down now for subfolder; maybe have the subfolder name be in italics or something. It's distracting and time-consuming to segregate.

  19. Sorting mails by size

    Bring "sort mail by size" option back. It's perhaps the Yahoo feature I miss the most.
