How can we improve New Mail?

Where is the divider between the message and reply?

For years and years when replying to a message, Yahoo auto-inserted a dividing line below the reply, to separate the reply text from the original message text. Now you've done away with that? Why? Every person I know who uses Yahoo Mail has said something about that and is bothered by it. Every time I reply I have to insert a few carriage returns, draw a dashed-line and then go back up a couple lines to start typing my reply (or draw the line after typing my reply). This is very inefficient and makes zero sense to me that you would remove this feature. Bring back the divider line!

    Not only this line but also the original message indicators (">" characters in plain text, vertical line in HTML format) were also disappeared... Do the developers use or test the new versions at all?? :(

    I've only recently been shifted onto the new email. I totally agree with your frustration. Not only did we have a divider line, but the header from the original email was in a completely different font and colour, and the previous message was indented with a line all the way down the left side.

    Classic mail is actually not like the previous version of Yahoo mail at all. It only puts a partial line across...

    This feels such a backward step.

    yeah, there use to be a space or break between reply and the sender's message. It is not there, so have to switch back to classic mail...they need to fix that.
