  1. I can't change the type of font in Yahoo.

    I simply cannot change the style of font when logged in yahoo. I can adjust the scale of the font through the browser, however this just makes the same font bigger.
    I can change the font when writing/replying to an email, but this still doesn't change the presentation of the font when viewed.
    It is almost impossible to read.

  2. delete button static

    The ribbon containing "Archive, Move, Delete, Spam" moves left and right between messages. It would be best to keep this in a static location so that as i open mail and click a button to delete and the next mail opens, i don't have to move the mouse again to delete. I can keep it there and just keep clicking.

  3. mail navigation

    when i display my mail by "SORT", "UNREAD", it's fine until i navigate to another choice (like "SENT") and then come back to the inbox. the "UNREAD" choice is not holding during navigation to other mail options. it always did - now it does not. what is the problem!

  4. Further to support case 02283766 (Keep action buttons in the same locations on different screens)

    I received a reply, but it wasn't relevant. The problem is not the wait every time something is clicked in webmail. The problem is that the Yahoo Mail button "Move" actually moves slightly to the right as a mail message opens, which means that clicking the button too soon means that the button "Archive" is clicked, which appears in exactly the same location as the button "Move" had appeared milliseconds before.

    My suggestion is to keep the action buttons (that appear on more than one of the Yahoo Mail screens) in exactly the same location on the different Yahoo Mail…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. Curent mail message focus

    In the old version, if you click on a message and view it and then return to the box, the email you were just viewing still has focus. The entry has would be bolded blue, and any new action taken would be on that 'focused' message. In the new version, when you return to the box after viewing a message, you have no idea where that message is, so you have to go looking for it again. The old version was so convenient. The new version is a pain. Any chance you can migrate this feature to the new version…

  8. Attachement

    Put attachment on top so no need to scroll until end of email to get the attachement.

  9. scroll position

    Recently, when using the web version, I'm seeing the scroll position preserved when I click from one message to the next. Please restore the old, correct behavior of loading each message at the top. If I scroll to the bottom of one message, that certainly doesn't mean that I want to begin the next message scrolled to the bottom. I always want to start at the top.

  10. groups

    Why is it so hard to get to groups. All I want in groups and it takes about 5 clicks to get there. Why can't I go directly?

  11. please go directly to selected inbox email not to that new, confusing list of sent & received messages

    eliminate the intermediate list; just go directly to the selected email.
    PLEASe put the sign-out button back in the empty space atop the page, not in a drop-down.

  12. Move Up after Delete, not Down

    When I have several unread emails I start at the oldest one and work my way up to the newest. After reading some emails I then delete them. I would like to be moved to the unread one above the delete, not the previously read below. This could be an Option: "After Delete, move to Newer, or Previous"

  13. Attachment placement

    Please put Attachments at the Top, or make an Option to choose between attachments at top or bottom. When an email conversation or chain becomes quite long it is easy to miss a new attachment, and a wast of time and effort to scroll down to see it, or scroll back up after adding one.

  14. Put the menu back at the side where it used to be

    Whose stupid idea was it to move the menu to the middle of the screen? This means having to move the mouse a lot further to access the menu to do anything with an email.

    This idea seems to be targeted at making life more difficult for the disabled, as it makes it a lot harder for anyone with mobility issues to be able to use Yahoo Mail.

    Put the menu back on the side where it used to be, which makes it a lot easier to use the menu.

  17. disposition icons

    You moved the disposition icons ( archive, move, delete, spam, [more]) to closer to the center of the field. But they're still in different positions when I have an email open from when I don't. Please be consistent. One of the original goals of Windows was to make the user interface consistent and intuitive. Just because you think you're gonna maintain market share by concentrating on your smartphone interface doesn't mean you should give up solid principles. Make them consistent.

  18. Remove "unread," "starred," and "less/more" from the left hand column.

    Remove "unread," "starred," and "less/more" from the left hand column. unread and starred don't belong in this list, they are options, not folders or folder types, and, without them, less/more are unnecessary.Make "views a menu option elsewhere, since people either use it or never use it. AT LEAST, get rid of the leading and trailing blank lines. You're using up MY real estate for no practical reason.

  20. accessiblity

    For those of us that use screen readers and keyboard shortcuts; I think it would be easier to use your email system if you made the following changes:
    1 instead of the click here areas, add a link that a person can use there keyboard to select.
    2 the inbox messages are very hard to read. maybe there is a more accessible way for visually impaired people to read there emails.
    I like yahoo mail, and will continue to use the services if it is made more accessible.
