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.
Yahoo's default Archive folder does not display number of unread emails. Not on mouseover and especially not with an indicator like in other folders. Please fix..
I have a Filter policy applied that sends certain emails received into the Archive folder. I must know if the folder has new unread emails without clicking on it.

I know that many Yahoo Mail users have raised this in the past but it hasn't been picked up by any product developers. The issue is the lack of a "Labels" feature in Yahoo Mail. Although Yahoo Mail allows for Folders to be created, it moves all incoming mail to a folder right away without a copy being shown in the main Inbox view. This is especially frustrating when checking email on the phone as new emails do not even show up in the main Inbox since they're moved to a specified folder.
The logic behind Folders makes no sense, and Yahoo Mail should put in a Labels like Gmail does.

Please bold the folder name *and* the number of emails, as you used to. Otherwise I can't keep track of which of my folders contain new emails.
Oh, and please can we go back to having 4 digits in the number of emails showing? I use my folders for archiving according to subject-matter, which means that some of them now contain way over 1000 posts!

Moving items to store in folders is good, or setting up for specific senders to go there also. However it definitely needs to inform us that there is a new email to read and not have to scroll down to find.
I like the old upper left symbols showing mail,contacts etc better. Also a print icon in plain view.

This is especially important since we can't adjust the Folder size and can't even see the whole Folder name.
