Reply / Reply All options when composing email
Previously, there was a "reply to all" or "reply to sender" option in the upper right corner next to the "show/hide CC/BCC" option. This was very useful if you selected "reply" arrow but realized it was more appropriate to send to the entire group, or converseley, if you realied that it should be targeted only to the sender. You could toggle back to either "Reply to Sender" or "Reply to All", meaning you could reply to all other recipients when replying to an email you had initially selected on ly "Reply" for. Now I have to copy the text, delete the reply from Drafts, then hit the "Reply to All."

Yahoo mail is becoming more like Gmail which is ugly
When i reply, please allow the full subject and names that appear, also please dont automatically put an indent
It's a real hassle replying to emails without having to reformat it all

When replying to an email after starting to compose it, the option to decide to whom the email will go have been abolished you can not chose between "replay all" or "reply to sender".
This is a total pain - where is the 'reply to all' option? I have to manually add everyone back in again to a conversation.
I had an open issue on the "reply all" capability, but there was a response and the problem was closed for comments. If I respond to an email with "reply" and start typing and then realize I need to "reply all" there is no option to click this anywhere on the screen. The response I rec'd said to hit "reply all" but there is no "reply all" once you start the email by just hitting "reply".
New email issue when replying to an email:
When I click on the small reply arrow, this is where my mouse stays when I start typing....but this causes a larger box to pop up with the recipients info....so I have to stop typing and move the mouse so that the box goes away in order to see what I am typing. It's the little stuff like this that is so very annoying with this new email.
I agree....also, you should be able to hover over an email address and click add to contacts which is no longer available either.
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.
