  4. Apply Custom email filters *before* Spam filter

    I have 20+ filters set up for specific domains, showing that I clearly want/expect emails from them.

    These emails should not end up in the Spam folder. I don't care what your 'statistical learning' thinks is spam. The defined filter clearly shows I WANT THE EMAIL. Your system should not override that.

    The only exception I can think of would be if spam filter knows the email is dangerous. Not 'undesired' but destructive. In that case, perhaps overrule the Filter. But if the email is safe, my Filters should trump your statistics.

    Alternatively (or in addition): Put…

  5. moving emails to a folder

    In the old Yahoo mail, when you moved an Email to a folder, Yahoo mail remembered that and the next time you clicked to move an Email, the folder list came up with the folder you previously moved to visible. Now, it goes back to the top. This is an annoying change and a loss in functionality. At least, there should be an option in settings to select this behavior.

  7. archive/un-archive individual emails or entire folders into archive subfolders

    Would be efficient to direct emails or entire folders to Archive/un-Archive into sub-folders. Computers were invented to make things like this easier than hunting/finding things manually.

  10. Path statements

    Remember the " path" statements in the Autoexec.bat file?

    Have you thought of a path statement or automatic path to the folders for emails to be categorized?

    Automatic paths to folders will eliminate long lists of emails, that is why I am bringing that to your attention.

  11. When having multiple email accounts under one email, allow for sorting

    When having multiple email accounts under one email, allow for sorting. I have two main email accounts that I use, a few secondaries, and some other junk emails.

    I would like the ability to put my important email accounts at the top of the list, then secondary, etc. The only way to do this now is to delete all the email accounts and then add them, one by one, in the order I want to see them in.

  13. Move folders

    It would be useful if folders could be moved e.g. subfolder could be moved to be a folder on its own.

  14. The folder panel is too narrow. Please add a control to adjust its width.

    The names of my custom folders are truncated. It should be possible to display them fully.

  15. Allow notifications for specific folders only.

    I currently have work related emails being filtered to go to a work folder.
    I would like the ability to receive notifications when emails hit that folder only.
    Currently notifications inform you of every new email in the general inbox only which is not helpful.
    Please consider folder specific notifications.

  16. No mail count on folders, and empty folder videos .... UGGG!

    PLEASE.. If you are going to stuff this new format down our throats, as LEAST put the number of Emails in each folder NEXT to the folder. I'm tired of guessing., Also, DUMP the videos for the empty folders. If I want to watch something, I go to You-tube. Please quit shoving stuff at us.. Its ONLY serves to **** us off more, and go elsewhere.

    LESS IS REALLY MORE~!

  17. views

    It would appear you have completely ignored the many people who want to Hide Views on a more permanent basis. Why cannot you allow for this? On my laptop, I have only so much real estate, and your expanded list of Views cuts down on my ability to look at my own, personal folders. Please, implement this, or let me have my old interface back permanently, where there was no such problem with Views.

  18. Permanently GET RID OF your folders for Photos, Documents, Deals, Purchases, etc. I hate them. They're blocking my custom-made folders!

    Permanently GET RID OF your folders for Photos, Documents, Deals, Purchases, etc. I hate them. They're blocking my custom-made folders!

    This should be an option that the customer should be able to choose whether to display them or not. Or better -- get rid of them completely! i hate them.

  20. SMTP protocol makes no provision for keeping sent emails. Yahoo keeps a copy regardless.

    Yahoo now keeps SMTP sent emails (Like Outlook or IOS client) in SENT folder where it did not years ago. SMTP protocol makes no provision to do that. I already have my SENT emails in my Outbox. I use Yahoo SMTP to send alarms from my in home security cameras and this makes duplicates. Just provide option in Settings to NOT keep a copy of SENT emails when using SMTP
