  1. print one list in contacts

    I want to print one list of contacts. The only thing that will print is my entire contact file, not just one list. I've had to switch back to the Basic email to do this, but then when I try to use Basic to email a list of contacts, the list will not appear and I have to switch back to New email. I am very frustrated. Do I need to take my account elsewhere?

  3. I don't like the new version of mail. It doesn't have the user-friendly options that classic has.

    My mother and I use Yahoo. My mother is 90 years old and deaf so she relies on her email for communication. She is getting more confused and the little box at the bottom right that says "one click away from your upgraded inbox" is annoyingly in the way. She is constantly clicking on it by accident and I have to change it back to the classic version on a daily basis. Is there a way to get rid of that box? She will never use the new version of email because the change is just too much for her…

  4. COPYING CONTENT FROM EXCEL

    Please allow the user to copy/paste from source to yahoo mail and keep the format at the source. When copying from Word that has tab delimited columns the columns are no longer aligned in Yahoo mail. When copying from Excel the user should have the option of keeping the grid boxes.

  6. New version is a downgrade missing lots of features, list below:


    1. In an incoming email, lost the menu you would get when clicking on the sender address. No fast way to add to the contacts, search email from, etc.


    2. When sending emails. "Add photos from recent emails"


    3. When sending emails. "Add several files from from recent emails"


    4. When sending emails. "Share files from cloud providers"


    5. Customize the interface to avoid the icon with the monogram near name or address of people in the From, To and Cc fields?


    6. RTL support: In the previous version when typing Hebrew it would automatically sense it and change the writing direction to be from Right…

  7. new contacts list

    When I go to the contacts list I want to see ALL the names on the list not just a few for each letter of the alphabet with X more if I click on that tab

    YOU have no right to decide who should appear on my list and who should be hidden from view

    please stop messing with things, old system is better, new system is garbage!

  8. The new contact list update is super confusing.

    It doesn't alphabetize any of the lists and is really hard to read or find any contacts you're looking for.

  9. The artwork for your newest emoticons looks as if they were drawn by a no talent 6 year old. Bring back last years emoticons.

    Give us back the previous version of your emoticons. The new ones are less animated and the artwork is VERY poor quality and definitely not as creative as the previous ones available for use.

  10. 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?

  11. 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.

  12. LET ME DISABLE THE NEW TRENDING NEWS NOTIFICATIONS FEATURE IN MAIL

    LET ME DISABLE THE NEW TRENDING NEWS NOTIFICATIONS FEATURE IN MAIL. In settings, I can only enable/disable desktop notifications. I don't have a way to shut off these annoying new news notifications that pop up in the Yahoo Mail tab.

  13. Stop messing with the mail. It worked before and now it doesn't half the time.

    Return to the previous Yahoo Mail format. You have screwed everything about mail up. Half the time, I get error messages whenever I try to the log in screen. Lots of times, individual mails don't load when clicked. Lots of times, Yahoo says it can't delete a message, after I have read it and chosen to delete it.

    If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does know.

  14. the ads all over the place ****.

    All the ads ****. This is the worst email ever. Will start to use Gmail exclusively if this is what Yahoo has become. Dying like every other old school irrelevant company that can't adapt and make things easier.

  15. font size

    I want the font size of the inbox to be larger. I do not want to zoom in especially for yahoo mail and then have to zoom out again for every other webpage that I use. It is bizarre that the font on this yahoo page is larger than the font in the new inbox.

  16. How can I hide the right hand side column permanently?

    I use the new Yahoo Mail web interface with "Right" side view message and the advertisement right hand side column pops up at every new email message view.
    Is yahoo so kind to make it go away permanently or they want us all to move over to gmail?

  18. email groups

    You need to be able to click on a contact and see what lists (or groups) they are a part of. I have groups of 40 to 50 contacts that sometimes need to be moved from one list to another, but I have no way of knowing what lists a contact is on without reading through all of the contacts in each of my 5 lists.

  20. blocking domain

    I want to block a domain. Blocking the email address does no good because the spammers just use another name each time.
