  2. Only you have in your inbox a small amount of Mb for sending attachments!

    In the settings there is no possibility to increase the traffic of email attachments!
    This volume for sending files is no good!
    P.S. It is necessary to make sending of problems in Russian.

    Увеличьте объем отправляемых вложений! P.S. Достали своим англ.яз.
    Только у вас в почтовом ящике мизерный запас Mb для отправки вложений!

    В настройках нет возможности увеличить трафик почтовых вложений!
    Этот объем для отправки файлов никуда не годится!
    P.S. Надо сделать отправку проблем на русском языке.

  3. Change the Bookmark Icon

    When bookmarking the new Yahoo Mail site In Firefox the associated bookmark icon which was once a dark purple envelope is now a lighter faded purple colour which looks weak and awful. Please change this icon back to its original dark purple.

  4. Send Button Move to the top of page

    Move SEND to top (where delete, move, etc are). you have taken up so much screen with the upper banner/yahoo search area that there is even less space to write and read. Having SEND on the bottom of the message is contrary to most email clients and makes your users have to scroll too much just to send the email. ???I thought you were improving the service. Clearly the new format is several steps backward based on the many comments I have read.

  6. Replying to email with alt+r

    Why can I no longer hit "alt+R" and have the reply to an email pop up?! This is a generic feature on virtually all other mail platforms and I really am considering dropping Yahoo! Mail because of it.

  7. doesn't use the full width

    The new e-mail no longer uses the full browser width. Tons of wasted space on the left and right sides, while the content in the middle is unnecessary crowded.

  8. Provide Storage with Yahoo Mail Pro

    With all the free email out there today I think Yahoo should provide a little more with the paid subscription. I was thinking like 1Tb of Cloud Storage with your Pro Account. This would be more of an incentive and would offer a nice benefit to your subscribers. I was looking for a backup tool for my pictures and files and I was thinking why pay for multiple services. So I hope you would consider this since $35 is getting to be a lot to pay just for email without ads.

    Thanks,

  9. stop telling me to turn on notifications. I DON'T WANT THEM

    THAT'S IT. STOP ASKING ME TO TURN ON NOTIFICATIONS. THAT'S ALL. STOP MAKING CHANGES, THEY DO NOT HELP WHAT SO EVER.

  11. imap

    Please add IMAP IDLE command.
    This makes mail receiving much faster and reduce load on server as long as clients don't need to poll it.

    Thanks.

  12. no ads please - very distracting, space-consuming; I am ready to think about another host.

    No ads please. Very distracting. I am thinking about switching to another host. Too bad, since Yahoo has otherwise been excellent.

  13. approved email address

    Approved Email Addresses so emails from that source do not go to TRASH. We don't have an option in TRASH to indicate it should always be routed to the InBox.

  14. email subject banner with "Star" button scrolls off screen

    while viewing the email the ability to "star" an email disappears.
    Classic email that stayed in view.
    Now I must scroll back up to the top of each email if I want to "star" the email as important.
    Make the star stationary, same as the delete icon, etc.

  16. shortcuts

    Keyboard shortcuts became language-dependent.
    When my language for Browser is Hebrew or Russian, pressing 'n' on keyboard does not do anything.
    In classic mode this worked perfectly - 'n' was for 'compose' never mind what language I was in.
    Please give that back.

  17. filter emails

    Pls put on tool for filtering emails in the inbox itself by selecting them from inbox, and create filters, this is how emails get filters and can add to spam together. but in yahoo... need to choose one mail separate and then filter mail of each sender.
    For reference: check gmail functions for filtering emails together.

  19. New look is too busy and the initials for the emails really annoying

    I had the new version and yet something happened and now everything is really different. The new one is super busy and hard to read emails. The worst might be how when picking an email from the list of contacts it assigns initials in colors inside a circle. Super distracting and I cannot find anywhere how to stop this.
