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.

    Why don't you guys use an ad blocker? I have one built into my browser and get no adverts in Yahoo mail... or anything else.

    I don't like that there are adds that look like an email. I accidentally clicked on an add as I cleaning out my emails and it's irritating. I tolerate the adds that are on around my email page. Isn't it enough that they are surrounding my email page? Stop making them look like an email.

    I have adverts appearing that are distressing to my religion. I inform you but they still appear. so you don't take any notice of my preference with adverts ?

    The ad banner is too close to the top of the email list and I unfortunately unintentionally click on it a number of times - please add space or a clear dividing line between the stupid ad banner and the first email!

    ive used yahoo mail for many years and also have gmail accounts. this is an EMAIL account. the most serious of internet communications but yet Yahoo continue to find new ways to sneak advertising into my account. I DO NOT want to see ads and freaking videos in empty folders or anywhere else. Do you really think that I want to look at more **** youtube type content whilst i am trying to conduct my affairs? I will begin moving my primary email accounts away from Yahoo because of your persistence in advertising inside my mail windows and folders. Ive had enough

    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.
