  2. New Mail Format is tiring to work in. Especially forwarding with attachments

    Before, in classic mail, when you forwarded an e-mail you were given the option to change the subject directly, now you have to click on an arrow and click "edit subject" which then takes you to drafts. The problem here is, when you click on your attachment to preview it, it takes you BACK to the e-mail to preview which closes your "subject" line. If you try to edit the subject again it switches back to drafts and closes your attachment preview... did nobody test out forwarding..?

  3. COPYING CONTENT FROM EXCEL

    Please allow the user to copy/paste from source to yahoo mail and keep the format at the source. When copying from Word that has tab delimited columns the columns are no longer aligned in Yahoo mail. When copying from Excel the user should have the option of keeping the grid boxes.

  4. New version is a downgrade missing lots of features, list below:

    1. In an incoming email, lost the menu you would get when clicking on the sender address. No fast way to add to the contacts, search email from, etc.

    2. When sending emails. "Add photos from recent emails"

    3. When sending emails. "Add several files from from recent emails"

    4. When sending emails. "Share files from cloud providers"

    5. Customize the interface to avoid the icon with the monogram near name or address of people in the From, To and Cc fields?

    6. RTL support: In the previous version when typing Hebrew it would automatically sense it and change the…

  6. In the "To", "CC", or "BC" of the "Compose" function, the "All Contacts" list does not have the contacts in alphabetical order.

  7. Turn off link preview

    If you cannot give us a DELETE button( like before) or a way to shut OFF your auto link preview insertion then please take it OUT until you get it to work correctly! I hate it. I forget that it doesn't work, I paste a link and then it auto adds a preview I cannot get rid of so I have to start a new message all over again. So for now I am UNABLE to add a link to my messages b/c of your defective auto preview "feature"! I used to be able to delete but now I cannot.…

  8. Annoying ad. blocker pop-up.

    Just get rid of the annoying pop-up wanting me to pay you for blocking ads! It interferes with almost every email I attempt.
    If this persists, I shall be leaving TalkTalk. It is ruining an otherwise great service.
    Has it not occured to you that most of us who don't want ads. already have a service to stop them which, by the way, are cheaper than the service you offer!

  9. On such date and time, so and so wrote: Please give an option to get rid of this and go back to classic address lines

    Please give us back the option when Replying to an email, so that we can have the original format of From/To/Sent/Subject Lines at the bottom of the new email, instead of "On such date and time, this person wrote:" That might be good for conversation mode, but not good for conventional correspondence mode.

  10. Turn off, "Automatically generate a preview of links"

    The "Automatically generate a preview of links" option is turned off in "Settings", "Writing email". However a a preview picture is is being generated anyway. The picture can not be deleted. Grrrrr.

  11. Please make it possible to send old-fashioned plain text email without fighting for it every step of the way!

    (This forum tells me to vote for an old idea instead of posting my own, but all of the ones I want to vote for are closed for comments and therefore unvoteable. Therefore, here goes another duplicate.)

    Since copy and paste is disabled in plain text mode for some supremely asinine reason, composing a plain text email in Yahoo is an exercise in frustration. The only thing worse is composing a non-plain-text email, where it constantly re-interprets what you're trying to do, moving the cursor willy-nilly to the end of the line, inserting graphics that it refuses to then remove,…

    When I change font size for a response to an email, the change does not last for next response to another email. How do you make permanent change to font and font size?

  15. 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…

  16. UTF-8 encoding not working on Yahoo+Thunderbird

    Since April the UTF-8 encoding does not work anymore when sending Yahoo emails via Thunderbird.
    Each Italian wovel with a stress (àèéìòù) is sent as a double question mark (??).
    It used to work until March or beginning of April. It still works with other providers emails. So please do not blame it on Thunderbird.

  19. Provide an option to send an email at a scheduled future time

    Especially in the professional world, sending an email the next day or some future date in a timely manner is expected and respected. It is a useful option, especially when you are up late drafting the emails and do not want to continue staying up until it is morning to hit send.

  20. 'personalized' logo obstructs replying to e-mai

    I want to reply to e-mail without stumbling over sparkly, useless, infantile pictures.

    So what if every entry on my contact list a 'personalized' logo. The logos are a flipping NUISANCE--Every last one pops up and obstructs composing a reply.

    I don't want the dratted things. Let me do e-mails and stop forcing me to pay attention to the drawings.

    And forget referring me to the 'troubleshooting link'. The server isn't working
