  1. reply all

    When I click anywhere in the reply box it goes Reply All by default.

    I'ts great that the Reply, Reply All, or Forward buttons are right there and easy enough to see, but I have been caught out before when I just quickly click in the box and accidentally Replied All to about 40 people when I only intended to Reply to the person in the previous message.

    I appreciate being able to click anywhere within the box (it's very efficient), but I think the default should be to just Reply, not Reply All.

  2. stars


    1. It would be really helpful if the stars could be made different colours : Ie: if i don't want to file the email yet, and have half a dozen that I am waiting on dealing with, then to be able to 'star' them with a different colour for the 'status' of my conversations would be really handy.

  3. automatic contacts in the "to" field

    When I type in an email address, I get an automatic listing of other addresses in my contact list. The old Yahoo mail was better - the automatic list was of people I regularly contacted together. Now, with the new Yahoo, the automatic listing starts with the people I most frequently contact -- but that is NOT helpful. I have various groups that I contact, and my most frequent contacts are not in all those groups.

  5. Positivity, Unity and the Golden Rule

    Perhaps you could find something more important to post than too many celebs posing their half nude bodies . Who cares? That appears to be all they offer.
    There are so many important things going on I would prefer you concentrate on these things .

  7. "select all" for selecting emails .... user should be able to use this feature within a date

    when I go to my inbox, I should be able to "select all" within a date (today) and not have to uncheck 30-60 emails from the previous day that I chose not to erase.

  9. The Thread conversation is confusing .

    Please make a simple flow of conversation . The whole reply, forward, send is not as easy to figure out and does seem everywhere you get confused on what thread you are or should respond to . what is worse is once you go back you have to find that thread.

  12. stars 2


    1. When I 'star' text messages on my phone, and then mass delete old messages, my phone retains the texts that have been 'starred' ... why can't I do this on yahoo mail? It would be really helpful! Also: why is there no ability to 'multi-star' or 'un-multi-star' .... If I want to 'un-star' a load of messages, I have to click on them one at a time - it is time consuming. Why Can't I just click or unclick multiple stars?

  14. There is no "Line" "------------------" between prior emails and you do not see who was "cc'd"; so you have to go back to the prior email !

    Terrible - There is no "Line" "------------------" between prior emails and you do not see who was "cc'd"; so you have to go back to the prior email !

  15. PLEASE, remove this highly annoying setting that puts together conversation.

    It is making email management so much complicated for nothing. Let us see only the email we receive and go to sent box if we want to see what we sent. make it simple like any other email app.

  16. Yahoo chases customers away by "fixing" email interface

    Put buttons (send, attach, etc) where I can access them rather than below the accessible part of my screen, use fonts I can read on my screen, use different fonts to indicate whether an email has been opened versus one that is unread, give an indication you care about customer's needs.

  17. un-send messages

    there should be a category or option that allow a send of a email to UN-send a email if he or she realize that the email communicating with is not to be trusted eg online person who create email so as to rob people online especially those who look for job face this problem

  18. This is AWFUL!!!

    I cannot copy paste old mails to my new mails to reply...it runs out of room! I am only allowed a small portion of room and then it goes invisible.

    I have NO emoji's....I absolutely hate this new e-mail and will be switching...should have done it when you changed. AWFUL!!!!

  19. Why can't i delete one email in a conversation thread?

    I am trying to delete one email within a conversation and it keeps deleting the entire thread. The old version of mail was way better, change it back!

  20. Date Separation *****

    This is ridiculous. If I have only one email from each of yahoo's arbitrary time slots, my email page looks like a 6 year old missing teeth.
