  3. Views

    I understand you are not willing to allow your customers the option of deleting Views but can you at least allow us to move it under our Folders so we don't have to "Hide" it everytime we sign into Yahoo mail?

  4. spam

    Spam folder does not update item count until the folder is actually slected.

    Since Yahoo has the habit of flagging my legit mail as spam (50% of what get flagged as spam is not), I need to know when I have new items in my spam folder. The count indicator does not update until after I've opened the folder for 10-20 seconds. So that means I need to manually check my spam box more often than my inbox so I don't miss mail.

    This is basic functionality that was lost with the forced move to the "improved" interface.

  7. Filters

    I just switched to the new email format. Not only is it very 'busy' now....I like the streamlined look, but I filter a lot of emails into folders to keep the Inbox clean. The problem is, with the old format, I could go to the drop down above the email and click to 'filter messages like these'. With the new format, this is gone andf I have to go to settings, copy and save thew email address, then go to filters and paste it so I can filter the emails into a folder. Who thought it was a good idea…

  10. move emails

    When you select a folder to move and email, have the Move drop down remember the last window. So if another email it to be moved to the same folder, when the Move drop down is selected, the folder name is right there, no scrolling. Now the Move drop down always starts from the top. The old email system remember the last selection.

  11. moving emails to a folder

    In the old Yahoo mail, when you moved an Email to a folder, Yahoo mail remembered that and the next time you clicked to move an Email, the folder list came up with the folder you previously moved to visible. Now, it goes back to the top. This is an annoying change and a loss in functionality. At least, there should be an option in settings to select this behavior.

  14. The folder panel is too narrow. Please add a control to adjust its width.

    The names of my custom folders are truncated. It should be possible to display them fully.

  15. Apply Custom email filters *before* Spam filter

    I have 20+ filters set up for specific domains, showing that I clearly want/expect emails from them.

    These emails should not end up in the Spam folder. I don't care what your 'statistical learning' thinks is spam. The defined filter clearly shows I WANT THE EMAIL. Your system should not override that.

    The only exception I can think of would be if spam filter knows the email is dangerous. Not 'undesired' but destructive. In that case, perhaps overrule the Filter. But if the email is safe, my Filters should trump your statistics.

    Alternatively (or in addition): Put…

  16. views

    It would appear you have completely ignored the many people who want to Hide Views on a more permanent basis. Why cannot you allow for this? On my laptop, I have only so much real estate, and your expanded list of Views cuts down on my ability to look at my own, personal folders. Please, implement this, or let me have my old interface back permanently, where there was no such problem with Views.

  17. Move folders

    It would be useful if folders could be moved e.g. subfolder could be moved to be a folder on its own.

  18. Permanently GET RID OF your folders for Photos, Documents, Deals, Purchases, etc. I hate them. They're blocking my custom-made folders!

    Permanently GET RID OF your folders for Photos, Documents, Deals, Purchases, etc. I hate them. They're blocking my custom-made folders!

    This should be an option that the customer should be able to choose whether to display them or not. Or better -- get rid of them completely! i hate them.

  19. Allow notifications for specific folders only.

    I currently have work related emails being filtered to go to a work folder.
    I would like the ability to receive notifications when emails hit that folder only.
    Currently notifications inform you of every new email in the general inbox only which is not helpful.
    Please consider folder specific notifications.
