We need a way to sort by Sender. Because, it helps to clear out the inbox better
Yahoo! You took away the ability to sort by sender, so now it makes so difficult to go through my emails to clear out my inbox. Please just put the "Sort by Sender" back!

We nagged you to make it possible to sort the Sent messages folder by recipient (after all, they all have the same sender!) for YEARS. Then you finally did it, and everyone was happy. AND NOW IT'S GONE AGAIN. Seriously?! WTF????? Please put it back. Life is too sort to file emails one at a time. Have pity.

Provide in Settings the option to sort emails alphabetically would be a fantastic and feasible option.

Hate new format, want the old one back!

After selecting UNREAD emails, I have longed for the capability to then sort by Sender/Name. Doing so would greatly enhance my ability to release server space by making it a lot easier to delete unwanted emails.

Recently, Yahoo Mail was changed so that now when a user does a sort, they will no longer see what documents are in particular directories, because the columnar directory information that was part of the traditional Yahoo, has now been eliminated. What monkey did this? Now, Now all you see for a sort is a global column saying "Yahoo." There is no specified folder storing the document, no info. on what docs are in the Inbox, versus a designated folder. Yahoo users have lost the ability to do any sorts in their Inbox. When a user searches for emails to file in their appropriate folders, now you can no longer see visually what folders the email are in, or what folders they have been filed to. This effectively ends the ability to use Yahoo mail. The ability to sort was a distinguishing feature of Yahoo, which is no longer available. There is no workaround. The only rationale for why this change occurred, is that the programmer that made the change, doesn't have a complete idea of how people use and organize their email. If this is not changed back, I will have to find an alternative after 20+ years of using Yahoo.

Desperately need ability to sort by other columns like sort by sender, sort by subject. Alternatively, ability to filter on a sender, filter on a subject. Unusable without it.

Please bring back the ability to sort emails in alpha order!! In both directions would be even better... A to Z and Z to A. That way when looking for the W's you don't have to scroll forever. Not only will this help us to delete big batches of emails from the same sender like we use to be able to do, but your storage of my 10,000 emails (and others) will go way down because I have a way to delete in big batches vs one at a time! Don't know why you took away all the sort options that were across the top of the screen... by sender, by subject, etc. Now you just have a few options under sort. Please help me help myself and your storage situation!

* my lists aren't in alpha order. And have about 60.
* when I search, I get 6 choices. I have 7000 contacts. Six choices isn't enough.
* I search for an email address, and I'm told it doesn't exist. BUT when I find an email in a folder with that exact same address, and put the cursor over the address, I'm given the "want to edit it" option. So, yeah, it exists! Maddening!
Everytime you guys fix/change something, you go backwards. Plz plz give us what we ask for. Why can't you guys put customer satisfaction as a high priority? What you force us to deal with is insane.

Tracey Pitcock commented
where did you put the Sort by Sender - this is a simple tool and should be made available - This option is on my other Yahoo account but not this one??

Looks like YAhoo has made a mistake in taking away our sort by sender option. Will they FIX IT? I hope so. This is a pain in the A__ __. Are you listening Yahoo?
K D commented
Yahoo disabled this basic functionality of email that has been around for 25+ years because the Yahoo site managers and programmers obviously never use email and they are ******* morons.

I used to be able to select 'sort by sender' and then click open and view a message from a sender, then return to inbox and the sort by sender would still be active. NOW when I sort by sender, click to view an email, then return to the inbox/main list of emails, it UNSORTS them all. Which means I have to re-select 'sort by sender' hundreds of times in order to process incoming email. IT USED TO WORK - PLEASE FIX. DO NOT TELL ME TO SELECT OR UNSELECT CONVERSATIONS - THIS IS NOT THE FIX. DO NOT TELL ME TO CLEAR MY CACHE. ALSO NOT THE FIX. DO NOT TELL ME TO RESTART MY COMPUTER. NOT THE FIX EITHER. PLEASE JUST FIX.

Please restore Sort by Sender in the email sort options.

Since I updated my Yahoo mail I lost the option for sorting by the sender and more options which they were usable. Now I have to spend more time to look for one sender, and sorting by subject is not helpful. It looks like many people are requesting this option sorting by sender back, hope I can see this option very very soon.

What a blessing i would be if we could sort our emails by sender, or for that matter topic etc. Other email providers have multiple sort options. I Know, Yahoo has filters. It's not the same.
If you allowed or even created better sorting capabilities, we could delete a LOT of Emails / Storage!

Need to sort unread by sender... If function exists in new layout, not easy to find or intuitive... frustrating
