  1. sorting

    Enable sort by Sender AND Unread AND date at the same time - the way the original basic Yahoo mail could. This was a basic feature available in all Pop3 type email software such as Outlook. I shouldn't have to move all my Unread emails into a separate folder, in order to sort them by sender and delete multiple emails at once. This is a basic feature that should be available.

  2. Editing views // Bring back "People"

    I used to rely on the "People" views tab on the left, which is why I never upgraded to the new Yahoo. I see it still has not been added, which is going to make answering emails very laborious. Please bring back the "People" filter, or give us an easy way to edit which tabs are under "views". Thanks for reading.

  4. Move "Folders" ahead of "Views"

    Move "Folders" ahead of "Views." Folders are used constantly. Thank you.

  7. Remove bug due to sort by "unread" flag

    When emails are sorted by "unread" flag, if you enter a message to read it, then leave the mail window and then go back to the mail window, you will see a different message. All messages, from the one you had originally selected to the current one shown in the yahoo mail window, are then flagged as "read", whereas you have no read them yet.

  8. TABS

    You still haven't fixed this!!!!!!!!!!

    TABS - They can disappear by simply pressing "x" when done, but I often need to toggle back to another email for reference when viewing/composing the currently opened email. Bring back the tabs up top that let you view an email without having to close the one you're in, going back to whatever folder the other one is in, and opening it, then closing it to go back to the original.

  9. Message deleted Undo

    Message Deleted - UNDO this is a simple fix. Move the option to UNDO (or allow the user to move the box) up and out of the way. Between the Search button and the user profile is a good location for it. It lays over top of other tabs when I have several messages open, and it is a performance issue. Simple, please fix!

  10. CTRL-Click

    CTRL-Click on every other webpage opens the selected item in a new tab, Yahoo mail used to do this too - it's very uselful to scan-read a bunch of emails qwuickkly, delete the ones that are of no interest and then be able to read the rest properly.

    With the new interface, CTRL-Click simply "Selects" the item(s).
    I'mm sure I'll get used to it, but what were you thinking when you went off-standard like that? It adds a learning curve, for no actual benefit, and it takes away usability.

    Please reinstate CTRL-Click as every other webpage uses it!

  11. Please STOP auto-scrolling the message list

    Please STOP auto-scrolling the message list or make it an option to do so. Do not auto-scroll after updating the particular box or after the user has deleted or read a message, etc. I am constantly starting to click on the "delete icon" for a message in the message list and just before I click the list auto-scrolls and I end up clicking delete on the wrong message. Then I have to go find in it in the Trash folder.

  17. problems with new version

    Delete key from keyboard no longer works.

    And after deleting an email from the inbox it opens an email in the reading pane that I moved to a subfolder...multiple subfolders depending on the order of the emails received and which email in the inbox is being deleted.
    i.e i received and email about my solar system that I moved to the "home" folder. I then deleted the next email i received (based on time stamp, so above the one I just moved) and the email about my solar system opens in the reading pane.

  18. buttons disappear

    Please get rid of the disappearing toolbar when composing an email. Just leave it there. I don't want to have to scroll up several times for it to reappear. That's annoying.

  19. COLOR OPTIONS FOR STARS

    Desperately need more ways to flag / star an e-mail. Please add additional shapes or colors for better organization.

    We currently use Yahoo Mail Pro for business and our shop shares a single e-mail account that our customers send to. Having additional flag options would make it so much easier to organize e-mails per employee.

    (For example: Everything marked red would be jobs Josh is responsible for and green would be Andrew's current jobs / or blue are jobs waiting for a customer response and yellow are jobs that need proofs sent to etc.)

    This would let us quickly see…
