  1. 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.

  2. Basic to Full Featured Impossible

    Moving from "Basic" mode to "Full Featured" mode is near impossible. Takes a PhD. I can't figure it out.

  3. I would love to see 'flag for follow-up' as an option for specific emails.

    would like something similar to Outlook, Use Flags and Reminders in Outlook. Flagged email messages help you better manage your mail. Flagged messages create to-‐do items either for you alone or for you and the recipients of the email message. For example, you can flag an email message that requests information that you need by a certain date.

  4. Keep check boxes checked after opening mail

    Everytime I do this, I HATE Yahoo Mail a bit more each time. When are you going to fix this, it didn't do it with the last version. At least keep the same features when upgrading. When selecting multiple emails to delete, I sometimes accidentally open an email. When I return to the inbox - all of the previously checked emails are unchecked. Please keep them checked even if you open an email.

  5. Why would you have the advertising on the right take you completely out of mail?

    Why would you have the advertising on the right take you completely out of mail? You should open a new window for the product when clicked. I get the necessity of them being there, so I'm not complaining about that. I don't like the experience of having to click 'back' to get back to my email.

  6. I hate that the "delete" is so far to the middle

    Order was much better in the old style, so I am switching back after this feedback... They should be right next to the reply and forward arrows: 1) Delete; 2) Spam; 3) Move; 4) Archive.

    TiA!! =)

  7. Search box is out of control

    SEARCH has been working well, but lately it gets stuck. Sometimes a letter or word is STUCK in my Search box, and I CANNOT backspace over it or make it go away so I can do something else.
    I have to close Yahoo and sign in again. HELP!
    And thanks!

  8. how about navigating to the next message WITHOUT deleting the current one?

    It's really annoying that the only options for moving to the next email in the inbox is either deleting the current one, or looking for the little tiny completely inconvenient arrows. And those aren't even included in the basic inbox, which is far superior to this new one. I know you're pretty new to this email thing, but how hard is it to make an interface that doesn't suck?

  12. automatically selected

    When I am using the ctrl key to select multiple messages for deletion, it automatically selects a second message after I make my first choice, even though that message was not presently checked. Sometimes, this message isn't even on the same screen. Thus, I have probably unwittingly deleted some important emails. This is probably just a bug. I can't imagine why anyone would want this "feature."

  14. 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!

  15. Return option to sign out from email app.

    Removing the option to sign out from the email app is ridiculous and underhanded as it forces users to navigate to a page with poor quality news content to sign out. Even worse, this may pose a risk to security to those who may forget to sign out on account of not having a readily available sign out option, especially if their browsers do not sign them out upon exit.

  17. undo

    Please do not put the undo button over the delete button. It is very annoying to have to click twice to delete an email. If I want to recover an email that I accidentally deleted, all I have to do is move it out of the trash.

  19. keep accidentally clicking the search magnifying glass on each message in the list when i just want to open msg

    in the email message list the search magnifying glass on each message in the message list is right in the middle so i keep accidentally clicking on it instead of just opening the message. bad design.
