  1. Users must be able to view email address rather than display names

    Provide option for users to view email address of sender and not display names. This way it will be very easy for us to identify sender as most spamsters mask their email address and display fake names. This will reduce the number of phishing attacks as most users will be able to identify the sender or atleast the domain names and avoid opening emails and clicking on email contents from unknown senders. It will take much less time to identify senders instead of hovering the mouse over their display names.

  2. SPAM Auto Delete Option

    There should be an auto delete option where a user can set the time frame in which to delete mail. I don't want to keep SPAM in my folder for 30 days. There should be an option where I can set an auto delete option for my SPAM folder to have the mail deleted every day.

  5. Yahoo Mail+ - Yearly subscription fee

    Offer a yearly subscription payment option in addition to the monthly pester-you-to-death choice. I'll happily sign up for Yahoo Mail+ then.

  6. add new contact

    Adding and editing new contacts was easy, until upgrades reduced the access and quality of Yahoo E-Mail. A simple point and click as we had before, with minor edit capability would be preferred to the very difficult system now available. Today I can add a name, but not the associated address. No longer am I asked if I wish to add or remove a contact ...

  10. Allow for recovery of erased emails from back-ups

    Please restore old emails! No notice given; have been on yahoo mail for 20 years; emails from deceased parents with family history gone! It would be a great option to have ability to recover erased emails from back-ups. I use Yahoo email for long-term content & historical tracking, with other email for day to day and another for work. Yahoo's unilateral decision to erase my data has left me at an extreme loss!

  11. scroll bar

    I'm glad I'm not only who is frustrated with the disappearing scroll bar. I'm sorry, but this feature is a nightmare. Seriously, who or what decided that the scroll bar should disappear? I feel like it has something to do with showing more advertisements. Ok, fair enough. Money money money. It's always the bottom line. But come on, this disappearing scroll bar is awful. It is what it is but I just wanted to echo the sentiment about this feature. I can't wrap my head around why somebody thought this was idea to implement.

  14. Most recent portion of a conversation ON TOP

    My idea applies to email conversations. I would like for the "newest" portion of the conversation to be on the top of the screen instead of scrolling down to read & reply to the "newest" portion.

  17. Have yearly billing option

    I hate the monthly billing cycle.

    I was a yahoo Mail Pro subscriber for the last 19 years. I was happy with it, you billed me once a year and I didn't get all the ads. Now you have discontinued the "Pro" option and pushed me into "Plus". Now I have a stupid $5/month charge showing up on my credit card.

    I guess it is easier to sell someone on "its only $5/month, go for it" then to convince them that they are paying $60/year to not get your ads.

    I don't want monthly billing, just bill it once a…

  18. filters

    Hi there,

    Upgrading the filters would be a good idea, a simple way to stop spam is to enable the ability to match the given name to the domain name. Most spam tries to convince you of its authenticity by putting the name of the domain as the sender name a simple if/else clause would make it easy to filter fake emails. It would be good if there was a "does not end with" option. Also it might just be me but I don't find the term "from" to be very clear, what does that actually mean? Is it the…

  20. Mail billing

    I've used Yahoo mail for years, happily paying an annual fee. Now it's suddenly changed to billing me monthly! It's an annoying waste of my time, having to reconcile a £4 + conversion fees on my credit card every month. Please restore annual billing as an option as soon as possible.
