  1. better Spam Filter

    spams feels like a perpetual cycle, a few somehow keep coming even after they have been marked as spam.

  2. Go back to my old format; ability to print the whole page from the drop-down and ability to open my attachment before sending my email.

    Go back to my old format; bring back print option in the drop-down; ability to print the whole screen; ability to open my attachment before sending my email; and there are emails I couldn't read the whole page and had to move the bottom bar. My husband said he can do all these with gmail. Why make changes that make things difficult and time consuming?

  3. all the backgrounds are too dark and the white background is too bright

    provide some pastel coloured backgrounds which are more restful on the eyes, particularly for more elderly users!

  4. 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…

  5. Block addresses by domain name

    Blocking individual addresses does little to stop the plethora of SPAM these days. If we can add a block by domain name feature, this would help cut down on repeat spammer domains.

  6. New Mail Format is tiring to work in. Especially forwarding with attachments

    Before, in classic mail, when you forwarded an e-mail you were given the option to change the subject directly, now you have to click on an arrow and click "edit subject" which then takes you to drafts. The problem here is, when you click on your attachment to preview it, it takes you BACK to the e-mail to preview which closes your "subject" line. If you try to edit the subject again it switches back to drafts and closes your attachment preview... did nobody test out forwarding..?

  7. Transitioning back to Classic does not work the ability to do so needs to be reinstated

    Allow users to transition back to classic. The new "look" is a disaster. Having to go all the way to the BOTTOM of an email string to reply? WTH thought that would be a good idea?

  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.

  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. 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.

  13. 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!

  14. Remove the 'Visit Site' link from the top of my emails

    I note today that my emails now have a "Visit Site" link at the top of each and every one. I guess that no-one at Yahoo has tested the usefulness of this update whilst using a slow internet connection! Let me tell you it is absolutely awful, since it loads up well after the rest of the email content and causes the page to return to the top after I have scrolled down to view the content. PLEASE AMEND this terrible update... either remove it as it's utterly useless (if the sender wants me to visit their website, there WILL…

  18. 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.

  19. blocking domain

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

  20. 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.
