  1. Email notification

    I would like to be able to specify which email senders I would like notification from. I DO NOT want notification for every email I get but only those senders that I specify. That would be very, very helpful. Thank you.

  2. Need a way to backup or download notes in Notepad (Calendar)

    Notepad contents are hard to access from mobile phones and one needs the information offline from time to time. Need a way to "dump" (as simple text or pdf) all the notes. Could be a simple ZIP file containing one file for each note; OR one text file with all the notes. ZIP file approach would be VERY useful since separate notes would be in different files. This sounds like a simply matter since the Web UI queries the backend and gives a list of notes. A dump would simply do what the browser UI does, BUT add the contents…

  3. After sending a reply to a message, Yahoo goes to the Inbox.

    It should go back to the last opened message. Otherwise I have to scroll down to where I last left off.

  5. Message Layout > List > Sender - Msg Preview - Email id - Folder Name / Color

    Suggestions:

    1) Please redesign List Layout to include the name of Folder and Sub Folder, right after the Email ID.

    2) A different Color for all the Emails already in a Folder.

    3) Name of Folder and Sub Folder that an Email is in, when we Open that Email.

    4) A 'Do Not Delete' / 'Confirm Deletion' - 'of Emails in a Folder' Option would be Awesome!

    Work.a.round:

    Right now I'm using 'Star' to note that It's already in a Folder.

    Current Option:

    Hovering over the Email ID to see the Folder, is NOT at all Helpful when trying to…

  6. Come on guys! Get calendar reminders out of sent folder

    So around April 1, Yahoo decided to have email reminders from the calendar appear in the sent folder? for the first time in 25 years? My goodness. Don't your customers love innovation & improvement /s. Why do you guys constantly ***** around with what's satisfactory?

    p.s. Anytime you want to display new email in our spam folder, that'll be great!

    p.s. And ANYTIME you want to let us alphabetize our lists, that'll be great! How many more years will be have to wait for something so basic?

  7. gives opportunity to restore our emails after 7 days.

    I have deleted whole my emails two weeks ago and there is no option for restoring them. I couldn't find any solution for that. Even I can not contact with your specialist about that and the only option is just restoring until 7 days ago.

    I'd like the Yahoo Contacts on my iPhone to be linked to the Yahoo Contacts on my MacBook Pro'. I thought the info' would be linked via the iCloud, but it isn't; a number of iPhone Contacts and/or contact info' is missing on the MacBook Pro' Contacts.

  9. backspace

    BACKSPACE should not delete messages! How is this a good user interface? There are many other complaints about this, but I cannot vote for them because you have the VOTE button grayed out. So, I have to create a new complaint.

  10. increase blocked accounts number or remove 500 account limit

    My account was recently added by a fraudster to hundreds of different mailing lists. The only way to keep my yahoo account usable has been to block all senders and current/future email...but I reached a limit at 500. This limit should be eliminated or your spam filter greatly improved.

    Many of the list they added the account to are not in English and it should be obvious. Because they are often real products or lists, the Spam filter is missing them. I was hoping I would be able to keep using my account but I'm no longer sure.

  11. Use the latest email date/time (for Sent or received email) for the date sorting order of the Inbox

    Hello, very nice interface, but when Conversations are turned on, & when showing my Sent email in a Conversation, please use the Sent time/date in the date sorting order of the Inbox. In other words, please use the latest email date/time (for Sent or received email) in the date sorting order of the Inbox.
    Or please just move all Sent emails to the Inbox.
    Thanks!

  12. stationery

    Please update your stationery to something more current. The same old ones have been there for years. Also it's April, you can get rid of the Valentine ones. It can't be that difficult for you to replace the old sad ones and add some new ones especially seasonally. Also I don't think we really need anything politically leaning. Thank you

  14. You should have a light tan as an available background color. Easy on the eyes.

    All your options are heavy and bright. Even the gray is dark. A light tan would be a good option for those like me, who spend a lot of time on line.

  15. Mistake in Holiday Calendar for the Netherlands

    The holiday calendar for the Netherlands still mentions Queen's Day on 30th April, which no longer exists. Queen Beatrix abdicated in 2013 in favour of her eldest son, Willem-Alexander. Since 2014 the Netherlands celebrates King's Day on 27th April instead of Queen's Day on 30th April. Please amend the Holiday Calendar for the Netherlands. Thank you.
