  1. Why are only three emails showing? Used to be 25 - with a choice of how many.

    Used to be the customer could decide how many emails showed in the In Box. Now there are only 3. Who decided to take that useful benefit away?

  2. new cursor

    Accessing email now shows a new thin cursor, which automatically changes from the Windows standard arrow. This new cursor points to a different position and makes editing difficult. I see no setting to restore the Windows standard.

  3. Enable enlarging of folder names (left-hand side of page). People with sight problems would find this beneficial. Anyone got any ideas?

    I want to enlarge the names of the folders (left-hand side of page) for a relative who has poor sight to be able to read. I can enlarge the font for her when composing an email but she needs to be able to read the actual folder names.

  5. FILTERS: add filtering by date range

    (Settings -> More settings ->Filters)
    In Filter Rules, please add filtering by date range (from start date to end date).
    It would make easier to find old emails, if you could quickly select (filter) emails within a date range (for example from Sept 2010 till Feb 2011)

  6. Can't find Yahoo Meet! Do you have a video conference feature? If you do, pls email me and let me know. Thanks.

    Your text body is too light, I don't like dark background, but I have to use the dark background in order to read the light text of a lighter background. How can I darken the text fonts to make it easier to read.

  7. Intrusive verifications

    You're already all over my email accounts why would my phone number be required? It's not like Yahoo are the greatest at preventing breaches so I'm pretty far from trusting it with any of my data. Plenty of phone hacking spyware out there, I would be feeling much safer with just email verification using well established accounts.

  9. Remove the by-day Inbox grouping.

    I see the idea/request to remove the Monday Tuesday Wednesday Yesterday Tomorrow Last Month .... grouping of the Inbox, has been "flagged" as inappropriate. Incorrect. It is a very appropriate request as it is better than is the way it is done now. I hope you made this non-enhancement reversible. Just causes clutter and should NOT be mandatory. Also pretty useless when the date is in lower right corner. Please don't force your preferences on everyone. Choice needed.

  10. Automatically mark spam as read

    In other email accounts I can either use filters or a setting to automatically mark spam email as read. I cannot seem to do this in Yahoo. Can such a setting be added?

  12. Attaching image to e-mails

    Attaching my Logo to emails has been a CONSTANT battle. I am always having to reset my image attached to emails I send because it will be good for a week or two (maybe even a month or so) and all of a sudden it won't be there anymore. I have to then search through my images to once again re-attach it to my e-mails all of the time. I would change my e-mail address to "Gmail" or something like that but it is my business email so would be a large thing for me to change. It is doing…

  14. settings to remove unused features

    Please at least add an option to remove
    the menu strips along the top area for those
    who never use them:

    ONE
    home...mail...news...etc

    TWO:
    The listing of emails across the top...

    THREE: Reduce height of search bar by at least half.

    As it is I have barely half the page to view emails.

    It's as if your testing the levels of frustration needed
    to see when users will abandon the service. I know I'm on the
    edge.

  15. Adding a new or different email address. Make it a single process and NOT all over the place!!!!!

    I have been on my system for OVER an hour 1/2 trying to complete what I thought was going to be a simple task. All I wanted to do was ADD a 2nd Yahoo email address. I have click, and click, and clicked and click and followed every direction to make this happen but here I am an hr. 1/2 later and I still can not get this done. I go on your so-called chat that find it to be ABSOLUTELY USELESS!!!!!!!! This a screen pops up giving you a number to call 800.320.9335. Guess what you get there .…

  18. Dynamic date separators: option to supress

    I find them pointless (there is a "date" column for a reason) and a waste of valuable screen real estate. Since it has been six months since the last thread on this subject was closed, I am re-submitting the request: give us a options setting to shut this "feature" off please.

  20. email address

    It is a security problem to not have an option to always show sender email address (truncated if too long) without hovering over it, to reduce vulnerability of phishing.
