  1. Yahoo Mail needs a tool for mass-editing for deleting contacts

    There should be a 'SELECT ALL' button for the user to edit out more than one-at-a-time

  3. Dynamic date separators: option to supress

    I find them pointless (there is a "date" column for a reason) and a waste of valuable screen real estate. Since it has been six months since the last thread on this subject was closed, I am re-submitting the request: give us a options setting to shut this "feature" off please.

  6. Email notification

    I would like to be able to specify which email senders I would like notification from. I DO NOT want notification for every email I get but only those senders that I specify. That would be very, very helpful. Thank you.

  7. settings to remove unused features

    Please at least add an option to remove
    the menu strips along the top area for those
    who never use them:

    ONE
    home...mail...news...etc

    TWO:
    The listing of emails across the top...

    THREE: Reduce height of search bar by at least half.

    As it is I have barely half the page to view emails.

    It's as if your testing the levels of frustration needed
    to see when users will abandon the service. I know I'm on the
    edge.

  11. Need sort option in Sent folder

    In SENT folder , the sort options should include Sort By RECIPIENT. sort by SENDER is meaningless in Sent email (it is useful for Inbox). Or at least restore Column Headings - so we can sort Sent emails by clicking on Receipient column heading.

  14. Why are only three emails showing? Used to be 25 - with a choice of how many.

    Used to be the customer could decide how many emails showed in the In Box. Now there are only 3. Who decided to take that useful benefit away?

  15. new cursor

    Accessing email now shows a new thin cursor, which automatically changes from the Windows standard arrow. This new cursor points to a different position and makes editing difficult. I see no setting to restore the Windows standard.

  16. Enable enlarging of folder names (left-hand side of page). People with sight problems would find this beneficial. Anyone got any ideas?

    I want to enlarge the names of the folders (left-hand side of page) for a relative who has poor sight to be able to read. I can enlarge the font for her when composing an email but she needs to be able to read the actual folder names.

  18. FILTERS: add filtering by date range

    (Settings -> More settings ->Filters)
    In Filter Rules, please add filtering by date range (from start date to end date).
    It would make easier to find old emails, if you could quickly select (filter) emails within a date range (for example from Sept 2010 till Feb 2011)

  19. Can't find Yahoo Meet! Do you have a video conference feature? If you do, pls email me and let me know. Thanks.

    Your text body is too light, I don't like dark background, but I have to use the dark background in order to read the light text of a lighter background. How can I darken the text fonts to make it easier to read.

  20. Intrusive verifications

    You're already all over my email accounts why would my phone number be required? It's not like Yahoo are the greatest at preventing breaches so I'm pretty far from trusting it with any of my data. Plenty of phone hacking spyware out there, I would be feeling much safer with just email verification using well established accounts.
