  2. As in January, I am not able to edit my contact list and assign contacts to groups. Could you enable it and don't disable again? Thanks

  3. Poorly placed feedback button

    Overall, your product is good. However, your feedback button is very poorly placed and can be very frustrating. It inhibits crucial navigation on the bottom left side of the screen.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have moved the feedback tab, as you guys have been requesting. We still want your feedback though, so please note that you’ll now find the feedback link at the bottom of the settings dropdown.

    Thanks!

  5. Fix Adding Contacts to Lists in Yahoo New Mail

    Expand Manage Contacts in Yahoo New Mail, to add the ability to add an existing contact to a previously established "List". This feature is available in Yahoo Classic but not in Yahoo New Mail.

  6. Add a contact from received message

    Bring back the capability to add a new contact directly from a received message! It is ridiculous that you have to copy the email address, exit the email message, open up your contact list, and add a new contact! Why did you ever take away this function?!? Please bring back the drop down menu for accessing contact details when simply hovering your mouse over an email address!

  8. Every time I switch between work and home computers, I get a time zone alert. Both computers are on the same time zone. Very annoying.

  11. Opera (Win 10) returning an internal server error past few hours

    Yahoo has been returning an internal server error on your home page and MyYahoo page -- all I've tried -- for the past few hours with Opera, but not FF or IE11. Internal server errors are almost invariably on the other end, i.e., yours. I cleared cache/history here. This last time I started up, the home page started to show then disappeared. Other sites working well. The URL I'm getting is https://consent.yahoo.com/collectConsent?brandType=nonEu&.done=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.yahoo.com%2F%3Fguccounter%3D1&sessionId=2cc-session6fbbb1b9-2253-45ac-bc70-90a75556a459&lang=en-US&inline=false.

  12. Move the undelete message

    I like the idea of the undelete, but must you place it directly over the delete button so I am forced to double click everytime I want to delete a messasge? Please move the little pop-up message over some so I can use it if necessary, but so it does not block the delete button.

  13. Very poor font choice

    Very poor font choice.
    1. Does not support latin extended. Those characters are shown with a substitute font
    2. Difficult to read - the thin font
    3. The new messages are shown with thin characters and read ones with bold characters. I find this strange
    4. No control over fonts in themes and background.

  14. Please help!

    Please help!

    I can not find a simple way to contact Yahoo for support in Australia and this forum is my last resort. When I log-in to my Yahoo business email I am prompted to 'update my mailbox' which I have done over and over again for the past couple of months. Several times I have received emails asking me to update even though I have and that I will be signed out on April 15. I can't reach my email on my Gmail app on my phone, it asks me to 'verify my credentials' and according to Yahoo help…

  15. log out

    You've removed the profile area where the log out option was. How do I log out now? Logging out should not be a chore. Put it at the top where it can be easily seen. Stop making things dysfunctional! If I can't log out, I won't log in. Gmail is looking good right now.

  16. Block Feature

    In the last version, we were able to just click on the three dots and immediately block all message. Now we have to copy and paste and then go to another tab and block emails. Please fix this!!

  17. remove auto-prompt email suggestions

    In the old mail, you could click an "x" to remove an auto-prompt email suggestion. In the new mail, there is no "x" next to an auto-prompted email so there is no way to remove suggestions. Please restore this feature!

  18. Logout

    I can't find the logout button. This is bad, and I'm thinking of changing all my email accounts to gmail.

    Some of us prefer to logout from one account to another, because it keeps the data integrity should you get hacked, open a virus accidentally, etc. The logout button should not even be buried in the settings menu - but located right on the tool bar next to the settings button, etc.

    It seems as though every revision gets more difficult and LESS user friendly.

  19. Typing a new email, letters jump back to the beginning of the email! ??

    When I'm typing a new email, all of a sudden the letters I've just typed jump back to the beginning of the first line of the email, even though I may be on the second line! That's new. Make it stop!

  20. Please make the time zone pop-up go away.

    Please make the time zone pop-up go away. There's no way to dismiss it and it interrupts me and grays out my screen every time I open mail.
