  1. cancel a sent email in 30 seconds

    Please add a feature to delay sending an email 30 seconds to give the option to cancel/withdraw sending an email after clicking "SEND"
    Gmail has this option and it's been very helpful when catching an error in the email after hitting "send" and being able to retract the "sent" email within 30 seconds.

  2. Why does YM bother saving empty messages as "drafts"?

    Sometimes I start a new message, then change my mind (realize it's not necessary, etc.). So I delete everything—addressee(s), Subject, any content—and close the tab. Nonetheless, YM saves this non-message as a "Draft". If I leave it there, I may think I have an actual drafts in progress—so I must open the Drafts box, select this empty message, and delete it.

    I realize that in the grand scheme of things, this isn't a huge issue (more of a "first-world-type" problem, LOL). But at the very least, it seems like a programming oversight. What possible value could there be in saving…

  4. Email goes to drafts without notification. It has delayed important business related emails without knowledge. This has cost me time and $$$

    There are many times an email goes to drafts when sent. When I think it has been sent, it never was, causing major disruptions in my business. This shouldn't happen without a popup or some alarm to affirm this. It's been a terrible problem, leading to faults in productivity and business delivery.

  7. deleted drafts

    Once again Yahoo Mail has randomly and permanently deleted a very important draft that I am unable to reproduce. There is no way to restore (even though you have instructions elsewhere that are misleading and inaccurate). If you have a "shortcut" that is somehow deleting my messages when I type please eliminate it or at least have the user confirm deletion. Either way the draft should still be available in the deleted folder so it can be restored. This has been a huge problems for years and needs to be rectified. Please find a way to recover drafts and eliminate…

  8. When I'm typing an email from Drafts, it doesn't automatically save any progress so if you click on another folder all your work is lost.

    Please include an autosave when working from the Drafts folder. I had saved a draft email and then added to it and when I clicked another folder to reference an email, nothing on the draft was saved. I lost about an hours work. Very disappointed with your email service.

  11. Drafts

    Allow a function to delete drafts automatically, or to prevent saving started messages automatically as drafts. Many times I open up a new compose dialog, but when I close it without entering anything other than an intended contact, it saves as a draft. Can this feature be changed to just automatically delete the message instead of saving it to the Drafts folder?

  12. Saving Draft Versions

    There should be a way to retrieve versions of drafts saved over time. I save a draft and then also refresh screen to ensure the content is secure. Yet after making updates to a draft note a few times the draft loses ALL content saved during interim saves and reverts to the very first draft. When I ask yahoo to reproduce the latest version before the loss, Yahoo can not. Please fix

  14. AUTOSAVE - Bad problem!

    Starting in Oct 2020, Autosave isn't working properly. Yahoo saves a new draft email, but later changes made to that draft don't get saved. Even when I wait 30 seconds or longer before closing the draft - to give Autosave a chance to work - it still doesn't save my changes. So when I open the draft again later, the original text is still there but the changes I made have been lost. I'm using a Fujitsu laptop and a Huawei Smartphone. The problem occurs on both appliances.

  15. There should be a "save" button in yahoo email when writing a draft of an email.

    There should be a "save" button in Yahoo email when writing a draft of an email. Please create one. I have to wait for several minutes when I want to save a copy of an email that I am writing for it to say "saved". This is inconvenient. I need for there to be a "save" button so that I can save drafts of my emails that I am composing when I want to.

  17. formatting text

    Why doesn't the "compose E-Mail" function work exactly like a word processor? Why do I always have to type things in MS-Word to get it right, and then copy it over? And then the formatting is still all screwed up. Maybe the Yahoo people should be forced to use their own products so that they can see what problems exist.

  20. Yahoo web based mail is awful and results in loss of work.

    Offline drafts are more reliable. If I lose internet connection and refresh my page, all my work on my composed email is gone. I've encountered that large files such as pictures begin to be removed and replace with a generic inline-image instead of the actual image. because of this loss in productivities and hard work, I'm no longer composing emails on the Yahoo web-based email platform.
