  1. 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 of us who prefer…

  4. 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?

  5. new contacts list

    When I go to the contacts list I want to see ALL the names on the list not just a few for each letter of the alphabet with X more if I click on that tab

    YOU have no right to decide who should appear on my list and who should be hidden from view

    please stop messing with things, old system is better, new system is garbage!

  6. Need Unread count for all folders

    I have over 100 folders with filters setup, need some thing to indicate that I have unread messages with in the folders (like I did with OLD Yahoo classic), and as a older Paying member should be able too get that option!

  7. Add back Online Search in the Search Box

    Why! Why!!! don't you listen to your users.
    AND as many asked before, PLEASE add the Internet as a search option like before instead of JUST search our emails.

  8. Move Message folder dropdown list has too much space

    The dropdown folder list for the "Move" button has far too much space between folder names, and is too short vertically. I can see only 7 folders in the scrollable list; that space is wasted.

  10. forward spam

    I need to be able to forward mail from my SPAM folder to appropriate antifraud government and business addresses. I do NOT want to have to move it to my inbox first and thus legitimize it.

  11. Add number of emails in trash and spam folders.

    The draft and inbox both show the number of emails in each folder. The trash and spam folder need to also show the number of emails the same way. Hovering over the folder to see the number of emails in them is a pain in the butt. You took away something so simple just to make a change. Why??? It is not an improvement.

  12. 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.

  13. Attachment placement

    Please put Attachments at the Top, or make an Option to choose between attachments at top or bottom. When an email conversation or chain becomes quite long it is easy to miss a new attachment, and a wast of time and effort to scroll down to see it, or scroll back up after adding one.

  14. scroll position

    Recently, when using the web version, I'm seeing the scroll position preserved when I click from one message to the next. Please restore the old, correct behavior of loading each message at the top. If I scroll to the bottom of one message, that certainly doesn't mean that I want to begin the next message scrolled to the bottom. I always want to start at the top.

  15. Please put the Archive,Move,Delete,and Spam functions back over to the left of the bar.

    Please put the Archive,Move,Delete,and Spam functions back over to the left of the bar, as that is where I think people naturally go for these functions because their cursor is mostly over the left two columns. I do not use reply or forward that much, so I wouldn't mind that being to the right of the other functions. Thank you.

  16. Curent mail message focus

    In the old version, if you click on a message and view it and then return to the box, the email you were just viewing still has focus. The entry has would be bolded blue, and any new action taken would be on that 'focused' message. In the new version, when you return to the box after viewing a message, you have no idea where that message is, so you have to go looking for it again. The old version was so convenient. The new version is a pain. Any chance you can migrate this feature to the new version…

  17. Sort by Unread

    When i sort by unread, I want to go to the next unread message when I click the down arrow or delete a message. Right now it goes to the next oldest email, not the next unread one.

    Also I like being able to keep tabs of emails open if they are something I need to return back to soon.

    I also don't like the "Deals" header and things that show up above the body of the email now. Distracting and complicates getting to the actual message.

    All in all, I do not like the new mail format!!

  19. 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!
