  1. field separator lines

    WHY is the "Delete" button all the way on the far right???

    Keep it handy closer to the other message buttons. It's annoying to have to move that far for something that in the earlier verison of Yahoo was right in line with the other options and checkboxes.

  2. ads inside the inbox

    I have to sift through lots of emails and highlight and delete the spam. I really hate that in the middle of all of my email there is an ad that i am accidentally clicking on. Please remove these ads from the inbox, or allow me to return to the old format.

  3. groups

    Why is it so hard to get to groups. All I want in groups and it takes about 5 clicks to get there. Why can't I go directly?

  4. please go directly to selected inbox email not to that new, confusing list of sent & received messages

    eliminate the intermediate list; just go directly to the selected email.
    PLEASe put the sign-out button back in the empty space atop the page, not in a drop-down.

  7. Move Up after Delete, not Down

    When I have several unread emails I start at the oldest one and work my way up to the newest. After reading some emails I then delete them. I would like to be moved to the unread one above the delete, not the previously read below. This could be an Option: "After Delete, move to Newer, or Previous"

  8. ARCHIVE BUCKET

    WHY DID YOU HAVE TO PUT THE ARCHIVE BUCKET ON THE FAR LEFT, BEFORE THE DELETE BUCKET ICON....????
    Why not move the archive icon to the far right of the line because most people DO NOT ARCHIVE an email as a first option - they delete or move it THEN they MIGHT consider archiving it.
    MOVE-THE-ARCHIVE-BUCKET-ICON-please......!!!!

  9. Why is scrolling through my history now take forever? It was much better and faster on the old version that you forced me away from.

    Scrolling through emails now is extremely slow, it was quicker with the old layout. Make scrolling much much quicker!

  11. 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.

  12. option to turn off email snippets inline with the subject

    option to turn off email snippets inline with the subject. snippets are confusing the subject line and usually don't make sense.

  13. disposition icons

    You moved the disposition icons ( archive, move, delete, spam, [more]) to closer to the center of the field. But they're still in different positions when I have an email open from when I don't. Please be consistent. One of the original goals of Windows was to make the user interface consistent and intuitive. Just because you think you're gonna maintain market share by concentrating on your smartphone interface doesn't mean you should give up solid principles. Make them consistent.

  14. Remove "unread," "starred," and "less/more" from the left hand column.

    Remove "unread," "starred," and "less/more" from the left hand column. unread and starred don't belong in this list, they are options, not folders or folder types, and, without them, less/more are unnecessary.Make "views a menu option elsewhere, since people either use it or never use it. AT LEAST, get rid of the leading and trailing blank lines. You're using up MY real estate for no practical reason.

  15. re-size the Yahoo pages when we don't (ever) work Full-SCREEN

    We don't work with any page in full screen.
    Good programs readjust their "frames" to accommodate the resizing.
    The execrable New Yahoo Mail doesn't.
    Thus many commands and tabs are off the "screen" window we have chosen.
    If if is possible, why not make it "readjustable: when resizing an application.
    I want to Sign Out, however that is "hidden" off to the right "off screen"

    Don't

  17. 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.

  18. accessiblity

    For those of us that use screen readers and keyboard shortcuts; I think it would be easier to use your email system if you made the following changes:
    1 instead of the click here areas, add a link that a person can use there keyboard to select.
    2 the inbox messages are very hard to read. maybe there is a more accessible way for visually impaired people to read there emails.
    I like yahoo mail, and will continue to use the services if it is made more accessible.

  19. 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.
