  1. Maintain inbox sort order please

    I prefer my inbox to be sorted by Unread messages. If I move off the Inbox to another folder and then return to the Inbox, the sort order is no longer by Unread messages, but instead by Date: Newest On Top. This is quite annoying to have to set the sort order each time I navigate to other folders.

  4. Tell me when something's in Spam

    You continue to put valid emails in my spam folder and what's worse, you don't tell me when I have something in there. So just by chance I look to find several emails that should have gone into my in box days or weeks ago. If you can't fix the fact that valid contacts should not go in the spam folder, then at least TELL ME WHEN THERE'S SOMETHING IN THERE.

  6. spam

    Spam folder does not update item count until the folder is actually slected.

    Since Yahoo has the habit of flagging my legit mail as spam (50% of what get flagged as spam is not), I need to know when I have new items in my spam folder. The count indicator does not update until after I've opened the folder for 10-20 seconds. So that means I need to manually check my spam box more often than my inbox so I don't miss mail.

    This is basic functionality that was lost with the forced move to the "improved" interface.

  7. Views

    I understand you are not willing to allow your customers the option of deleting Views but can you at least allow us to move it under our Folders so we don't have to "Hide" it everytime we sign into Yahoo mail?

  13. "Your Starred folder is empty"

    It shows my Starred folder as empty but I know there are at least 50 or so messages I have that are starred. I can see them in my Inbox but nothing in my Starred folder.

  14. Folders can't be renamed

    When FOLDER has sub Folders it can not longer be "RENAMED" or "MOVED".
    One can MOVE or RENAME a FOLDER as long there aren't sub folders.
    This new feature is actually inconvenient.

  17. spam folder - A lot of companies want you to forward phishing emails to them.

    Would be nice to be able to do that from the spam folder. Instead of having to restore to inbox, forward the email and them report as spam again. Amazon Apple Sony etc they all have stop phishing email address to forward things to. So do banks.

  18. Filters

    I just switched to the new email format. Not only is it very 'busy' now....I like the streamlined look, but I filter a lot of emails into folders to keep the Inbox clean. The problem is, with the old format, I could go to the drop down above the email and click to 'filter messages like these'. With the new format, this is gone andf I have to go to settings, copy and save thew email address, then go to filters and paste it so I can filter the emails into a folder. Who thought it was a good idea…

  20. Filters Don't Work Reliably - Abysmal Support

    The same filter will work one day but not the next. "From" field in email header is identical on both messages in the example.

    Emailing "support" is a waste of time: no case # in the email, response so generic and unrelated to my issue that it's useless, replying to your techs' email is a waste of time because another tech will reply to that and blurt out another ignorant non-sequitur.

    How to improve: Yahoo, please remove your collective head from your nether regions!
