  1. New look is too busy and the initials for the emails really annoying

    I had the new version and yet something happened and now everything is really different. The new one is super busy and hard to read emails. The worst might be how when picking an email from the list of contacts it assigns initials in colors inside a circle. Super distracting and I cannot find anywhere how to stop this.

  2. Interface is deleting emails not selected

    When I select all, only a portion of the emails show checked/selected. if i don't uncheck any boxes and click delete ALL emails in my box are deleted - even those note selected. This didn't used to happen. Please revert to old functionality. Or actually show that all emails selected some can be unselected.

  4. Please continue to support Chrome 49 for Mac OS

    I have an older Mac running an older version of Chrome 49. I cannot upgrade it because I cannot upgrade my Mac OS at this time.

    Yahoo Mail works just fine in Chrome 49. Please DO NOT stop support of modern Yahoo Mail.

  7. day headers show only resource ID in grid view

    Bug report:
    Using Chrome and FireFox browsers, all is good.
    Using Msft Edge, in the grid view of the message threads, the group headers for the day's names and "today", "yesterday", "last week" all show up as 4-digit resource ID numbers instead of the text.

  9. Improve the ability to delete emails

    You have not improved the ability to delete a large amount of emails at one time. It is infuriating!! Please fix. And I am talking of being able to delete thousands of emails in one fell swoop.

  13. Position of message telling mail has been Moved/Read/Other

    The way the message of Yahoo Mail appears telling me messages have been moved/read/deleted appears on top op de options to move, mark as read ec. making it difficult to do things and I have to wait for it to disappear before I can do anything. It takes seconds every time I want to do something. Make sure that the little window with messages about actions taken will not be ON the bar where the actions you can select are.
    Let Reply, Reply to All, Forward, Archive, Move, Delete, Spam and More always be visible and make the message of…

  14. Please provide a type size BETWEEN "medium" and "large" ...

    My type size is set to medium, but LARGE would be better for many of my correspondents. However LARGE is so big that it would annoy some of the correspondents in my "lists." PLEASE PROVIDE a "medium-large" type size, useful for older folks whose eyesight is not as acute as it once was. Thanks so much!

  15. I don't want to switch to bare-bones "classic mail", I just want the same new mail format I had until yesterday.

    The huge space on the right with unnecessary info about the sender... the choice between a blinding white background or a ridiculously dark one... switching back doesn't take me to the "previous version", it takes me to an unpleasant basic version and doesn't solve the problem. I don't think my eyes can use this new format, sorry and hope you consider the option of keeping it how it was until now.

  16. Mark original text in email reply

    When replying to an email, there used to be an option to insert a '>' in front of every line of the original text. In a chat, the Yahoo support agent said this is not possible. Please add this capability.

  17. Please make it possible to send old-fashioned plain text email without fighting for it every step of the way!

    (This forum tells me to vote for an old idea instead of posting my own, but all of the ones I want to vote for are closed for comments and therefore unvoteable. Therefore, here goes another duplicate.)

    Since copy and paste is disabled in plain text mode for some supremely asinine reason, composing a plain text email in Yahoo is an exercise in frustration. The only thing worse is composing a non-plain-text email, where it constantly re-interprets what you're trying to do, moving the cursor willy-nilly to the end of the line, inserting graphics that it refuses to then remove,…

  19. Photo folder - for what use.

    Yahoo photos? I want to add a link to a photo in Yahoo forum, to show an ad as "sponsored mail" i never get rid of (incredible bad) though i report it every day.
    I have a very special serious reason to not see that junk, its about a relatives death that is connected to it.
    But it wasnt possible to link to a place outside Yahoo and not possible to insert an image.

    What use do yahoo think i have…
