    I agree.....Too many dislikes to the new mail format (would prefer to have continued using the old classic email format forever!) to list all of them...... but here are a few:
    1: reply info detail missing - need to be able to see all recipients, date/time, etc. should be returned to the old classic email format
    2: cannot figure out how to add a new contact from an email...used to be a simple hover to highlight the email address in the email itself and then a click to add to contacts. Now just highlights with no options. Should be returned to old classic email format.
    3: hot button locations - these have been moved entirely too far from the old classic email format and should be returned. IE: the delete button moved from left of center to far right corner.
    4: can no longer find a "reply all" button

    Overall, people really just do not want this drastic change. It's hard enough getting through a day as busy as we all are. Trying to send/reply/read/move/delete/print an email should not change so drastically that it feels like learning a new software.

    Switching back to the old classic email format should be allowed and was for quite a while but now that format has even changed and is completely useless because it has changed so drasitcaly and no longer allows for the signature line to include different fonts copied into the box. Many of us are businesses and don't like that our clients start getting totally different styles of emails from us.

    This new format is really slow, I spent too much time charging the new e-mails, I would prefer the old format to check faster both personal and working e-mail, anyways you never listen your customers.

    With thousands of negative responses, why do you insist on forcing this new version on us. You have never even tried to explain or point out any advantage of "new mail".
    I've been looking for posts from users who are thanking you for the new version. Haven't seen any. This is a terrible show from Yahoo about who has the power and who doesn't really matter. Obviously my comment will be disregarded like all the others. Very sad.

    I don't like the new format. With the old format I knew who was sending me the message and with the new format I don't. It is too time consuming to go through my emails especially when there are a
    lot of them. Please go back to the old format cut down the ads.

    I agree with everyone. Absolute rubbish. I'm looking into leaving Yahoo forever. I really do hate it and can't believe you would consider it an update. It has so many stupid things. Many are listed below. Another thing I hate... When you do a search it lists all of the emails but doesn't tell you which folder they are in. Who ever thought that was a good idea?!?!

    Lots of other similarly annoying rubbish.

    Time to jump ship

    Yes. Why is it so ******** hard to change back to the Basic mail, and stay there.?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    I guess that I am going to have to learn G-mail.
