  1. ads

    Cut the ads or we're out. I makes no sense for us to pay for email service and suffer through ads at every turn.

  2. 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: …

  3. Help with unsubscribe

    Add a "Do Not Show Again" selection box to that repeating 'Help with Unsubscribe' msg that continues to POP UP in Yahoo Mail.

  5. Deals - "Deals from Email"

    'Deals From Email' (located in 'Views', on the left hand navigation bar) feature I do not fine helpful and it appears to have been forcibly added to the inbox, in the preview pane it sits right ontop of the emails consuming the viewing window and it cannot be closed or collapsed. I'm not sure what the value is as its mining all my email which I find annoying. Is this 'feature' part of a Yahoo enhancement or Verizon enhancement to bring more adds to me from the reviewed data in my inbox?

    Reviews of the feature are predominately negative, so…

  6. Top Results

    Top Results

    Kill Top Results for all the reasons stated in the other comments. I'm posting the very same issue because It seems I couldn't vote for more than one comment and someone has to drive this point home so that you understand that "Top Results" does not enhance your email product at all. Email users are capable of determining for themselves what incoming mail is "top" to them. Don't flatter yourself - you have no idea.

  7. stop with unwanted ads

    Stop with the hijacking of our email service. I do not want ads popping up with every click. I do not want ads popping up for others to see on my computer. STOP WITH THE ADS. IT IS UNPROFESSIONAL THAT EVERY CLICK I MAKE, NEW ADS APPEAR ON 1/5 OF MY SCREEN. PAY ME FOR THE ADS, FOR TAKING MY EMAIL AND FORCING ME TO HAVE JUNK ADS.

  8. Message management banner

    The pop up banner indicating that messages have been deleted, moved etc sits too low, obscuring the bar of instructions including delete etc

  9. filters

    Filtering my email was so much easier when we could do it directly from the mail list. Please bring back that feature! It was the only thing that made me keep this as my primary email.

  11. disposable email addresses

    When replying to an email addressed to a disposable email address, the disposable address used to auto populate. Now the base address - that I do not want to use for anything - shows up. Wrong!

  12. By allowing to sort by recipient in the sent box

    Cannot sort mail by recipient in the sent box. They are usually all sent by the same person.

  13. Doesn't work with Chromium

    Tried it with Linux Chromium. Emails have 200 lines of gibberish code in them when I forward or respond to an email. Going back to basic mail makes no difference, no selection for reverting back. A page popped up and said I had to update my browser, I chose no and to continue with yahoo classic mail, but it looks and acts very differently. It doesn't revert to classic or basic or anything. Now I have to install firefox just to compose emails properly (installing last stable version of Chrome didn't work on my system). So Chromium maybe needs to…

  14. Bring back the new mail indicator on the "Spam" folder

    Hi! Although rarely, a non-spam e-mail gets into the "Spam" folder".
    In the old Yahoo mail interface the number of new e-mails was shown next to the "Spam" folder. In the new interface that's not there, so I need to remember to check my "Spam" folder for possible non-spam e-mails. If I have the reminder that there are new mails in the "Spam", I would do so. I think you need to bring that new mail indicator back.
    Thank you!

  15. "EASY" WAY TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM JUNK YOU NEVER SUBSCRIBED TOO IS STUPID AND INEFFECTIVE

    While it is a good idea to suggesting unsubscribing from junk emails, your suggestions are so terrible that I suspect you of accepting bribes from junk mailers. Today you suggested that I unsubscribe from The New York Times, which I pay for monthly and various other items which I virtually never delete because I read them. Just after I have finished deleting my junk mail, you pop up cheerfully suggesting that I unsubscribe from the mail that I deliberately did not delete? Also when I have sat down and tried to unsubscribe it never makes any difference as all those…

  18. coupon view blocks the email

    I can't see the email that I was sent because the coupon view is trying to extract the deals in the email, so all I see is a blank email.

  19. I would like to be able to remove some tabs and reorder others in the mail menu.

    For instance, I never use "Starred" or "Archive". Also, I'd like any folders I make to be included in the main mail menu. I don't need a separate "Folders" sub-category.

  20. Allow wider width for preview pane permanently

    I regularly use a large monitor with the resolution of 2560x1440, it would be great to take advantage of the space and allow for a wider width for the preview pane as it feels a bit cramped at the moment. I know you can expand the pane but then it collapses as soon as you view another email. I'm guessing it's to fit in ads which is fine but for large monitors there is plenty of space to fit everything.
