  2. Too many popups

    Stop with the popups after they are viewed one time. Thanks.

  3. Classic Mail is better -- please let us keep it

    I have continued using Classic Mail for as long as I can because the overall look works so much better for me:

    1. I can see more of my folders and emails on the screen. The list of folders on the left is more compact.
    2. "Smart Views" stays hidden -- I don't have to change it each time like I do with "Views" in the new Mail. (Disabling this altogether would be even better.)
    3. The tabs at the top take up less space.
    4. The themes are more pleasing, IMO.

    Please consider keeping Classic Mail available for those…

  4. When I open an email and read down - it jumps back to the top all the time

    Stop interfering when I am scrolling down and reading an email. The program keeps jumping me back to the top of the email.

  5. How can I hide the right hand side column permanently?

    I use the new Yahoo Mail web interface with "Right" side view message and the advertisement right hand side column pops up at every new email message view.
    Is yahoo so kind to make it go away permanently or they want us all to move over to gmail?

  6. Advertising

    Hello,

    Using email via the website is an atrocious experience with all the advertising banners and ads masquerading as real inbox emails. I'm in disbelief as how this is even tolerable given the competition of Microsoft and Google. Fix the situation right now before you bleed all your subscribers. Remove the ads!

  9. navigation panel

    1. The (left-sided) Navigation Panel top section should have the option to hide folders like ' Archived', ' Starred', 'Unread', or the one not in regular use.
    2. The 'Views' section should remain collapsed by default.

  10. This is a piece of **** email service. go back to the classic one. Fire these ******** engineers of yours -- no wonder you guys are slow,

    This new style is very slow -- even logging on to your survey mail it took 3 minutes or so. Please change before I switch to other service provider

    Dean

    you need to fire your 3rd world engineers working on this! Piece of **** email.

  11. send to self

    1. why has it been set up so one cannot send to one's self?
    This SUCKS.
    2. Why is email sent to me say "me" instead of my name?
    That REALLY SUCKS.
    3. I am digging into other systems that make more sense.
    4. Why can I not respond or forward any email. I always have to go back to my old yahoo email.
    5. How can I get the old yahoo email to start instead of the new one?
    It is a waste of time having to switch to the old one in order to get anything done that…

  16. please add Option to Turn Off hover-bubble descriptions, they get in the way.

    I understand the inbuilt hover-bubble description boxes can be useful, like when it says how many unread emails there are in a folder --but they can also be annoying. Especially the "checkbox, not checked" description that pops up every time my mouse hovers for a nanosecond near a checkbox. When I'm checking multiple emails it gets obnoxious and I would really like the option to make them stop, please.

  20. Keep boxes checked on selected emails even if I accidentally open an email so I don't have to start over.

    It happens very regularly where I'll have over 40 messages selected for deletion and I accidentally miss the select box and open an email instead. While that's mildly annoying, it's very frustrating to start all over and have to select all of the messages again. I've read other submissions where people would like the check box bigger, but I would love if the boxes remained checked/selected after you back out of the email you accidentally opened.
