  2. stop making backspace delete mails

    Not sure when this feature started, but I've deleted multiple emails on accident now because I use my backspace button to get me back to the Inbox after reading an email. (I have a chrome plugin for backspace to go back a page) Now it looks like my backspace deletes mails. And if you don't click undo quickly enough, they don't seem to even be in the trash. They're gone as far as I can tell. Please consider stopping using the backspace to delete. This is very ******* me. Thanks.

  3. improve by showing the full screen not only the most recent emails

    Improve the email view screen by making it bigger and include a calendar on the right hand side to check specific emails dates.

  5. Sorting

    It would be nice to be able to sort by sender in reverse alphabetical order as well as regular.

  7. Scrolling

    Having to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to send and email is kind of annoying. Making a static bar would be amazing! The colors are pretty though! The flashing documents button is weird. Not a fan, but helpful feature! Do you guys have anything like Google Drive?

  8. change layout of a REPLY

    Fix problem where mouse is over the Email address when Replying. When I hit "REPLY", I cannot start typing my text.!!!
    The mouse location from hitting REPLY is over the email address and a bubble pops up. This prevents me from typing. This is really poor layout on the part of the design of your new email.

  11. top inbox message still disappears

    Top inbox message still disappears from display almost all the time. Yahoo closed a bunch of posts complaining about this but didn't actually fix the problem. Working on Chrome from a Win7 laptop.

  12. When i delete emails I just want to delete the first 50 not all of them as i need to keep some of the earlier ones.

    I want the deleting of emails how it was before. I do NOT want to delete ALL emails at once as I want to keep some for further reference. Is there an option to just delete the first 50.

  14. Viewing emails

    I clicked "go back to original folder" in the "After moving a message" section of the settings, but after deleting/moving an email, but it always opens the next email. How do I stop this?

  15. scroll

    When scrolling down in Inbox to get to messages that are out of the screen, the preview link at the bottom left hides the very message that I'm trying to read. This is very annoying especially when scrolling with arrow keys, because once I get to the message I want, I can't see the sender because it's hidden by the preview link. The only way to see the sender is to scroll one more message down and then back up, which defeats the purpose of scrolling with arrow keys. Please, FIX THIS!!!! And please, don't tell me to switch to…

  16. Can't see bottom email when hovering on another email

    Can't see bottom email when hovering on another email. The bottom email is just to low and the little popup that you see when hovering on another place on the page makes it so you cannot see it. It's annoying, and should have been and still should be accounted for.

  19. Sorting bars above email messages

    Can we have sorting bars above the email messages? This way we can just click on the bar above the relevant column to sort (e.g. from, subject, date, etc) instead of clicking on a drop down menu to search for the sorting option.

    Also, if an email is selected and then the sorting option is clicked, that email message should remain selected. This helps with searching or browsing.
    For instance, if I select an email from "John" and I click on the sort by name bar, all emails from all Johns should be together; if I select an email whose…
