  1. Please stop the "news notfications" that are now popping up in lower right corner while I am looking at emails.. VERY annoying..

    Need to be able to opt out of receiving the news notifications that are seen in the little bell in upper right corner of home page. They are popping up in lower right corner of my email page when viewing emails and must be deleted as each one pops up./ VERY ANNOYING!!!!

  2. There's too much space at the bottom of the screen.

    When i have the preview pane set to bottom and i drag the middle divider up, the preview pane itself doesn't change size and i get a blank panel at the bottom. wasted space that should be used by the preview pane.

  3. Downloading attachments

    Zip file name should include the mail's subject and date instead of being "archive" only.
    e.g.
    e-mail's subject_20190214

  5. Please continue to support Chrome 49 for Mac OS

    I have an older Mac running an older version of Chrome 49. I cannot upgrade it because I cannot upgrade my Mac OS at this time.

    Yahoo Mail works just fine in Chrome 49. Please DO NOT stop support of modern Yahoo Mail.

  6. When you reply, put in the history the full header of the previous message

    When you reply, put in the history the full header of the previous message. Eg Currently, when someone emails me and others and cc's others, then when I reply, it currently puts in the history only the Sender. I would like to have in the history the full header so I know who else was Sent and who was cc'd. As a workaround, instead of Replying to a message, I Forward a message, so that the history has the full header. Then I manually delete the "FW:" and type "Re:"

    Darken check box borders. They are hard to see.

  9. search

    Search function does not search the Trash folder when set to "All Mail". Is this by design? It seems it should search across all folders - seems intuitive, since the "All" option precedes all other options.
    Repro steps:
    1. Delete an email that you just received, thus sending to the Trash folder.
    2. In the search bar, search for one of the words found in the subject of the email you just deleted.
    3. The search results will not contain your email that was just deleted.
    4. Now click the down arrow for the extended search options
    5. Change the…

  11. Position of message telling mail has been Moved/Read/Other

    The way the message of Yahoo Mail appears telling me messages have been moved/read/deleted appears on top op de options to move, mark as read ec. making it difficult to do things and I have to wait for it to disappear before I can do anything. It takes seconds every time I want to do something. Make sure that the little window with messages about actions taken will not be ON the bar where the actions you can select are.
    Let Reply, Reply to All, Forward, Archive, Move, Delete, Spam and More always be visible and make the message of…

  12. Default Mailbox

    In the previous version I never saw my "@yahoo.com" mailbox. That was fine because I never used it for anything. This new version now defaults to that and I have to click to get to my business mail. I don't care about the "@yahoo.com" address. I would like to be able to go straight to my business mailbox.

  13. I wish more than anything you would remove the checkmark from "Keep me signed in" as a default.

    It's really offensive that you think people want to stay logged into this site. Why not leave it blank and leave it up to us, your users, to decide this for ourselves. It's rude and patronising. And so annoying that every single time I log in I have to uncheck the box and it doesn't stay that way.

  14. conditional formatting

    I would like to have conditional formatting available. This would help me quickly see emails from PEOPLE and help me know miss things in all the junk that comes everyday.

  16. Bring back shift+3 (#) to delete

    Sure there is a "delete" key, but many of us keyboard users can use the right hand to navigate and the left hand to # delete. The delete key is buried way over on the right side of the keyboard.

  17. Preview of attachments isn't working

    As mentioned below by others, the preview of attachments isn't working. I'm posting this myself as I see that the advice given by the mail support person is completely unhelpful:

    "If you click on the box for the attachment it will open in preview mode. If you click below the box it will download the attachment.

    Thank you!
    Mail Support".

    I think anyone letting you know that the thing isn't working has already tried to open it. Ditto the advice of another support person:

    "If you still find that the issue is happening, please see this help page for troubleshooting: …

  19. fake draft with adds

    Yahoo shows (1) draft in my Drafts folder. I click on it, and the page says at the top there are zero messages in the folder, but THERE IS A VIDEO ADD. (A YAHOO ADD, NOT A MESSAGE, SMACK IN THE MIDDLE OF MY DRAFT FOLDER VIEWING PANE) This is baiting me to look into a folder so you can put up a full size add in the middle of my screen, right in front of my face without me clicking on anything. There's enough add space available without diving right into auto-launch videos triggered by YAHOO's false reporting of…

  20. entries are squeezed together and hard to read now!

    This has been happening for about a week or more now - the emails that are underneath the wonderful 'ads" now are squeezed underneath it so its not only hard to read the header on the email but hard to get to it to open it! This happens at all the ads you have added into the email box! Also you can barely see the last entry in the email listing as well. Same thing happens but you cant scroll down far enough to see the last one. I hope you can fix this - its very annoying
