  1. Please change back to the old method of marking emails as read/unread. New method is totally frustrating!

  3. What and Huh, Yahoo?! Functionality and ease worse than ever

    Why Yahoo? Every time you upgrade, functionality, ease of use and efficiency gets worse!! There is now a big space defaulted into the email body so when you copy already formatted content, like from Microsoft word, there is a huge space between paragraphs. This also happens when just typing directly into email. In this age of mobile phone and small screens, why are you making us have to scroll down twice as long now to see the message!! Stop formatting style into your email and let us choose spacing, etc …. And, why would you move the functions (Archive, Move,…

  5. Allow changes to letter color for low contrast - vision impaired. I prefer dark letters on semi dark background.

  6. Would it kill you to move the "delete" etc section from center page to the left? I like delete an email straight up.

    Just move the line from the center to the left. It wouldn't even involve typing anything, just clicking the position.

  7. Please give me the old mailbox back. I hate the new one.

    Why do you have to change where things are and change the size of things to make a new and improved "mail" while the first one was just fine. I hate the new mail page.

  9. CONTACT SEARCH DIFFICULTIES

    cannot add a new contact unless we have email address. Some clients do not have email addresses. This is totally ridiculous. So therefore we cannot keep contact numbers. please change this - email should not
    be mandatory to add a contact

  10. keyboard shortcut - spacebar and up down keys should retain previously marked mails

    Currently in Yahoo mail. we have the following behaviour for marking
    multiple messages in the Inbox.

    Scenario:

    Home page of Yahoo! Mail where we see all messages in the Inbox.

    Requirement
    Select multiple emails and then mark them as SPAM.

    Using the Mouse we can mark multiple emails and then mark them
    as SPAM.

    When we use keyboard shortcuts as follows

    <spacebar> mark current email (e1)
    <down key> moves to next email (e2)
    however when we navigate to e2 the e1 gets unmarked.
    This is an issue i see on google chrome

    Perhaps this needs to be fixed to allow…

  11. Please simplify the senders list


    1. Who needs logos there ?

    2. If I need to forward a message to a list, when you delete a name in the list, it was much easier to be moved automatically to the next name in the list.

  13. Let me click on a link to make a booking or pay an account

    Please let me click on a link instead of directing me to the Yahoo app which I have installed twice but which won't let me do anything!! Plus you keep asking for verification which I do and still nothing works. I just want things to simple and easy as they previously were.

  14. These new settings are limited, I couldn't find where to Sync mail boxes! Couldn't devise better signature but just your stile 20 years old!

  17. There is no basic mail

    Followed your instructions for going to basic mail (settings>more settings>switch to basic mail). But there is no switch to basic mail. What is there is "switch to classic mail" and once you go there you immediately get the "This version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available. We encourage you to upgrade to the newest version of Yahoo Mail now". message. SO where is basic mail???

  18. Use some compression for pinned tabs as there is for unpinned tabs

    Use some compression for pinned tabs so new tabs don't seem to disappear. I can only find them if I close other tabs. If I pick "open in new tab", the topic I'm looking for should be visible somewhere on the right, but there is no way to see the tabs that have sadly become "invisible".

    Add an arrow or indicator to the right that makes these hidden tabs available to view or move. Right now there is only the "+" to open a new tab, and nothing to show that there are other open tabs available.
