How do I search for emails within a specific folder? I could do it within the old Yahoo! inbox.
If you need to find an email fast, searching your mailbox is the way to go. Enter simple search terms in the search bar or locate hard to find items using Advanced Search.: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/new-mail-for-desktop/sln28067.html

Fix the search in the new email. It was working fine until the new upgrade. Now the only search result I get is this:
"An error occurred while trying to fetch the items in this list.
I am tired of retrying. It has been this way since I was "upgraded."

Switch Back to Classic!! I can not search on an individual folder and see just what is in that folder! When I search at the top, it gives me everything.!!

The Search function has been dumbed-down. Having clicked the magnifying glass to search for an email subject, sender etc I can no longer "Refine" my search (eg by Folder) like I used to. Please return this functionality to Yahoo Mail.
Please provide advanced search function so you can refine searches. Also, provide folder location for each search result. "YAHOO" as a location is not helpful. Also, please allow the ability to search in trash folder.

Please provide the name of the folder or mail box the email is in in the list of the search result. Without the folder or mail box names, it is very troublesome to find out where the emails are in at one glance. Going each and everyone of the emails to look for the folder or mail box names is not practical. Thank you.

i like the classic mail becuse in the new one u can search only mail in the old format in the top scroll bar you could also go to net search
The old version allowed me to refine my email searches by folder, to/from, subject, attachments, etc. Most of these options are now gone.
Also, the new version took away Smart Views (where I could define my own custom searches). The new "Views" are not customizable.
How is providing less functionality considered an upgrade?!

I regularly search within folders. This is now a multi-step process. BRING BACK THE FOLDER DROP DOWN. Also, allow search within folders on the app.

I use the refine feature to clean out my inbox. This must be restored as a feature.
