  2. The folder panel is too narrow. Please add a control to adjust its width.

    The names of my custom folders are truncated. It should be possible to display them fully.

  3. Filters

    I just switched to the new email format. Not only is it very 'busy' now....I like the streamlined look, but I filter a lot of emails into folders to keep the Inbox clean. The problem is, with the old format, I could go to the drop down above the email and click to 'filter messages like these'. With the new format, this is gone andf I have to go to settings, copy and save thew email address, then go to filters and paste it so I can filter the emails into a folder. Who thought it was a good idea…

  4. It would be nice if you could adjust the column containing the folders to make it larger or smaller

    I would like to be able to adjust the column width for the folders like the other columns.

  6. how do I change the views? i don't need photos, documents or tutorials

    Hate new Yahoo mail. I don't need photos, documents or tutorials and I have to click Hide every single time to see my own folders. And I can't see how many files are in Spam. Who decided on these "improvements" - I have had yahoo mail for a very long time and each time you improve it I hate it. and where is help? there is no way to rearrange the folders shown on the left side at all? unbelievable!

  8. The the inbox folder should always be visible

    The the inbox folder should always be visible on the left navigation pane (like in Outlook). All the user have to do is click on it to see the content of the inbox. Scrolling around to get to the inbox is a waste of time.

  9. Folder View

    I can't see the entire folder name. Make the Folder view area width adjustable by the user.

  10. Spam Folder

    The number of messages in the spam folder needs to show like it did in the old email and it does in the inbox. I don't like having to check the spam folder all the time to see if there are messages.

  11. Stop Ads Over Personal Email on Left Side of Screen

    stop putting ads over my personal mail boxes on left side so that I can't see my own boxes. I would also like my personal email boxes to be up at the top of the left side of the screen instead of "views" which I never use.

  12. The folders hierarchy does not show any unread emails.

    The folders hierarchy does not show any unread emails in the box name. If there are any unread emails, I have to go to each folder and check. I have quite a few filters and it is tedious to go to each folder and check if there were any emails on that day.

  14. Please Replace the "me"in my inbox with my actual name .

    I mentioned it before. I've sent links of websites or of photos to myself from my phone, to keep in my e-mail, but ever since I upgraded, instead of seeing my name in the inbox folder ( I would send things to myself, or receive e-mails from people, but my full name was listed instead of the word "me" ) I now see the word me. I would really appreciate it if you would kindly remove the word "me" and please allow me to see my full official name . It looks much better that way and for me, more…

  16. filter

    You need to be able to "add selected email" to an existing filter. If you want people to use Yahoo. It gets too filled up with junk/spam/political stuff otherwise. Plus the "settings button" is very hard to find on normal view, and the filter tab works poorly (pull down menu disappears beyond bottom of page)

  18. Show exact number of emails in Inbox

    I hate that no even the Inbox folder is showing 999+ instead of the exact number if you have more than 1000 emails. Please reinstate the exact count!

  19. Please highlight the folders with unread emails

    Only a number next to the folder showing there are unread emails. However the folder itself is not highlighted. Would be good to highlight/bold the folders to make them standout.
