  1. Further to support case 02283766 (Keep action buttons in the same locations on different screens)

    I received a reply, but it wasn't relevant. The problem is not the wait every time something is clicked in webmail. The problem is that the Yahoo Mail button "Move" actually moves slightly to the right as a mail message opens, which means that clicking the button too soon means that the button "Archive" is clicked, which appears in exactly the same location as the button "Move" had appeared milliseconds before.

    My suggestion is to keep the action buttons (that appear on more than one of the Yahoo Mail screens) in exactly the same location on the different Yahoo Mail…

  2. 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!

  3. delete button static

    The ribbon containing "Archive, Move, Delete, Spam" moves left and right between messages. It would be best to keep this in a static location so that as i open mail and click a button to delete and the next mail opens, i don't have to move the mouse again to delete. I can keep it there and just keep clicking.

  4. mail navigation

    when i display my mail by "SORT", "UNREAD", it's fine until i navigate to another choice (like "SENT") and then come back to the inbox. the "UNREAD" choice is not holding during navigation to other mail options. it always did - now it does not. what is the problem!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Stop auto scrolling in my inbox!

    Scrolling through my Yahoo Mail inbox was made more difficult with the last 'update', but this newest one makes this service almost unusable. Now when I click to scroll down to look at emails in my inbox, it suddenly scrolls automatically on its own. It's impossible to browse through my messages that way, and like most of the new features wastes more of my time. I now have to do all sorts of acrobatics to stop the scrolling, and go back to the place in my inbox I actually want to go to. Yahoo Mail has become increasingly inaccessible for…

  13. Auto Highlighting

    Auto Highlighting. Please return auto highlighting. I like to close an email before moving or deleteing it. It's easier to just click "delete" after closing a just read email. Now when you close an email that highlight line shows up somewhere else in a random pattern. To keep that highlight on the email just read I have to "check" the box before reading. That adds an extra stroke I never remember to do.

  14. 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!!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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!

  18. 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…

  19. Put the menu back at the side where it used to be

    Whose stupid idea was it to move the menu to the middle of the screen? This means having to move the mouse a lot further to access the menu to do anything with an email.

    This idea seems to be targeted at making life more difficult for the disabled, as it makes it a lot harder for anyone with mobility issues to be able to use Yahoo Mail.

    Put the menu back on the side where it used to be, which makes it a lot easier to use the menu.
