How can we improve New Mail?

Too many ads!!!

Ad overload. I don't mind ads, but your interface takes it to new extremes, especially when I try check a folder with no messages in it.

    It is bad enough to get innundated continually, but now you are inserting ads into emails I have signed up for? This kind of **** is exactly why I am transitioning to another email provider. That and new mail is horrible.

    I've purposefully changed the default settings so that I DON'T see targetted ads. But I still see a LOT of ads - the one at the very top of the email list is in the worst place imaginable, and I can imagine a high percentage of people click into these accidentally believing them to be new emails. This should stop.
    The ads on the far right of the screen are way too big, and as I have switched off targetted advertising these can only be seen as spam? The only attention they get is to be reported as irrelevant - I assume the companies have paid for this "service"?

    Totally agree. I will be in the process of transferring by yahoo email to another email account.

    Adverts takes far too much space and time to move. Already investigating other service providers

    if I'm looking to buy something, I'll search for it. I don't want or need ads in the middle of my email lists. I have enough junk mail as it is to now have to look through ads to find the mail I actually need.
    I have a gmail account that I use for nothing, maybe its time to give it a try.

    Not sure if this helps anyone. What i found works and i can still have pop up unlocked .Here is what i did ..Downloaded Avast. There is a app on my top that has access to all. i choose who and what i block. So great and if i need that sites cookies. i open if not i close. You still give them a right if you want as a window comes down to say. allow or not. most i do not. Still win contests, My auto ' stuff''still works. I am older so computer lingo is raw. ;) lol . I also have another security and so was able to uninstall Avast but kept that blocker i sure did..lol so that is how i did it. WORKS great for yahoo. and actually thought getting rid of my CLASSIC EMAIL was a way to punish me...but that is a paranoid state of mind..i am not willing to discuss...baaaaaaaa lmao Have a great day !!!

    There needs to be a way to block moving ads. Like videos or animated advertisements. It is incredibly hard to read or use the email services with so much movement on the page. I'm not sure how it affects loading times but it seems I have a much harder time getting pages to come up that have those moving ads on them. They show up before anything else. I don't mind an advertisement but the animated/moving ones are extremely aggravating.

    I use an ad blocker add-on in my browsers and i don't get ads on yahoo.and other sites.

    Try changing browsers or see if add-ons are available for the browser you are using.
    I use a Webmail ad blocker, a pop-up blocker, and a web page ad blocker in mine. NO ads on my Yahoo mail page.

    I don't mind some ads but I do not want any more ads from Planned Parenthood. I feel like this organization is repugnant and kills (murders) unborn and indefensible human beings. I don't want any part of this and I don't want their advertising on my computer! Thanks.

    WHOA! Ads are in-line with my emails now?!! UNACCEPTABLE! Ya'll need to get that fixed. Around my PERSONAL email - okay, I get it - - it's a Free Service! But within the listing of my emails so I 'accidentally' click on the ad all the time!?! WTF are ya'll thinking! Checking GMail for portability to KEEP my YAHOO address but accept it into another frame other than one that LITERALLY inserts adds into the list of my emails!
