  3. color coding emails

    Hi there. It would be really helpful to be able to prioritize/categorize emails with customizable color-coding or something similar. Let's say, "Green" dealt with/done/no further action required"; "Red" requires urgent attention or reply", "Yellow" read, not urgent but need to be responded later/put it on to do list" or, for others, categorize emails like "green" calendar event-related, "yellow" personal, "bue" business, "pink" kids school, "red" work.... And then you should be able to see "pink" emails only or "green" emails only. Now that everything is shifting to online platforms, the read/unread/starred options really not sufficient to categorize emails, improvements are…

    Why can't anyone answer my question about the POP setup? The yahoo phone/ mobile app does not include the option to change the settings on the server to pop. I need to delete email on my mobile devices but leave on the server. The third party apps give you all options, that is why I used them and I know you have ability to include it in the app because I've seen the settings on your site, thanks,

    Doug

  5. I can barely read emails in the new Yahoo email view due to the bright white background screen. Is there anyway I can reverse the colours

  6. Make basic mail an option

    Make basic mail an option that can be set so users don't have to switch to it every time they refuse to turn off their ad blocker. As long as you are going to use intrusive advertisments with scripts and trackers I and other users will continue to use an ad blocker. You even bombard your paid users with ads, it is well known and for that reason I wont go that route either. If you went back to basic hyper linked graphic banners for advertisement there would be no issue with ad blockers at all. People value their privacy…

  7. after trying to re-install my account via MS Outlook nothing works.

    Yahoo überstrapaziert die Nerven. Yahoo verweigert Wiederanmeldung via MS Outlook. Yahoo verlangt Zustimmung für Sachen, die ich nicht will.

  10. Add an email forwarding function as overall setting for all incoming emails.

    With Gmail I can set a forwarder so all my mail both stays on Gmail server and also redirects/forwards to another address I choose. Do you do that? Please do that...

  13. How do I organize my inbox so that older e-mails are on top PERMANENTLY.

    I would like the e-mails in my inbox set up so that the older e-mails are always on top.
    I can set it up that way temporarily until I leave the page, but when I return to the inbox it reverts back to newest on top.

  14. Exactly HOW can I see the Time on my incoming emails in a 12-hour format AGAIN?

    I prefer my emails to show their time stamp in the 12-hour format that has disappeared today. I don't care what the time is in a 24-hour format and how far it is from the Green Meridian.

  15. Settings do not stay put.

    Theme and background settings disappear. Settings do not stay after I set or select them (and reading email becomes an eye strain). How can I solve this settings problem?

  17. blocked addresses

    Please consider allowing "by date" sorts to the blocked addresses list. The alpha setting is not conducive to managing these in order to stay within the 1000 entry maximum allowed.

  19. word wrap

    Please add the choice of WORD WRAP to your settings. It is ridiculous to have to scroll to see a line of text. All our computer word processors have that capability, and it should be a default for Yahoo Mail, with a settings item for adjustment if needed.
