  1. Answered email won't move to folder the first time I tell it to

    When I click on and email, type an answer and then click Send, the Inbox reopens with a link to click on the sent email. This is very nice. If I click the box to the left of the email I just answered and select a folder to move this email to, then click Apply, the next thing that opens is my Sent folder. I reopen the Inbox and the email I answered is still there. I have to tell the program to move it a second time, and then it will do it. Please make that happen the first…

  5. Your new rate is ridiculous. An increase of $15 from a year ago

    I've been a so-called Pro customer since 2009. The last charge hike was $19.99 which I thought ridiculous but lived with it. I just found about new rate. I never received an email from Oath or signed an agreement. Why weren't your customers notified of this new owner or partner? I've spend 2 hrs digging for information on this bill I received and who it was from. Not a great way to treat long-standing, loyal customers. I have cancelled my subscription.

  7. SMTP protocol makes no provision for keeping sent emails. Yahoo keeps a copy regardless.

    Yahoo now keeps SMTP sent emails (Like Outlook or IOS client) in SENT folder where it did not years ago. SMTP protocol makes no provision to do that. I already have my SENT emails in my Outbox. I use Yahoo SMTP to send alarms from my in home security cameras and this makes duplicates. Just provide option in Settings to NOT keep a copy of SENT emails when using SMTP

  8. Protect emails from deletion

    I have lots of important messages, receipts etc that I have nearly deleted at times by mistake. I think it would be great if particular folders and their contents could be 'locked' for protection against this, so that if you try to delete the messages inside them a warning pops up.

  11. Positivity, Unity and the Golden Rule

    Perhaps you could find something more important to post than too many celebs posing their half nude bodies . Who cares? That appears to be all they offer.
    There are so many important things going on I would prefer you concentrate on these things .

  12. Stop auto scrolling in my inbox!

    Scrolling through my Yahoo Mail inbox was made more difficult with the last 'update', but this newest one makes this service almost unusable. Now when I click to scroll down to look at emails in my inbox, it suddenly scrolls automatically on its own. It's impossible to browse through my messages that way, and like most of the new features wastes more of my time. I now have to do all sorts of acrobatics to stop the scrolling, and go back to the place in my inbox I actually want to go to. Yahoo Mail has become increasingly inaccessible for…

  14. Get rid of the "No, Keep me signed in" message

    Get rid of the new " No, keep me signed in" message when signing out of Yahoo mail. I think we know how to sign back in if we need.

  15. Folder Icons

    Allow icons for folders. Being able to identify a folder at a glance without the need to read the name would allow for easier use.

  17. Allow more control over deleting emails with one click.

    Allow more control over deleting emails with one click. Sometimes you can delete 100 emails with one click, other times it is 200, 300, etc. I would like to be able to choose the number of emails to be deleted at one time.

  18. NEED OPTION TO DELETE STORED HISTORY OF RECENT ACTIVITY

    https://help.yahoo.com/kb/find-remove-unusual-activity-yahoo-account-sln2073.html = OBSOLETE. There are NO remove buttons when accessing Account Info/Recent Activity on browser

    BTW, EXTREMELY BAD THAT POSTINGS HERE GET CLOSED W/O GIVING POSTER CHANCE TO RESPOND

    Hi, this is about one's Yahoo Account Info/Recent Activity (accessed from upper right menu in Mail)

    Most important, need option to delete stored history under Yahoo Account Info/Recent Activity

    I see it stores activity indefinitely, going back a decade in my case

    Nobody likes private history stored indefinitely on server w/o their control of the data

    Thanks, J

    P.S.
    In addition, though this feedback related to Mail thru the menu, on…

  19. Auto Highlighting

    Auto Highlighting. Please return auto highlighting. I like to close an email before moving or deleteing it. It's easier to just click "delete" after closing a just read email. Now when you close an email that highlight line shows up somewhere else in a random pattern. To keep that highlight on the email just read I have to "check" the box before reading. That adds an extra stroke I never remember to do.
