  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?

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Make Views folder in mail optional!

    I have noted Yahoo has decided not to allow users to permanently remove Views. This is intrusive, especially as it keeps popping up with so-called news that I overpaid for something. This means Yahoo is monitoring all my online shopping! It is unacceptable. Yahoo, as a long time user, I implore you to rethink this. I am also talking to Verizon, your new owners.

  14. 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.

  15. Folder View

  16. VIEWS opens up every time I open mail & I have to close it before I can get to my folders. There's no option to move it or close it for good

    VIEWS opens up in the sidebar every time I open mail & I have to close it before I can get to my folders. It used tp be at the bottom of the sidebar in the old format. There's no option to permanently hide it or move it to the bottom of the sidebar.
    You didn't really think of the users when you developed the new format.

  17. Stop Ads Over Personal Email on Left Side of Screen

    stop putting ads over my personal mail boxes on left side so that I can't see my own boxes. I would also like my personal email boxes to be up at the top of the left side of the screen instead of "views" which I never use.

  19. Moving from Sent Folder

    When I move a message from the Sent Folder to another folder, the item remains in the Sent Folder until I refresh. This is not true for deleting items from the Sent Folder or moving items between any other folders.
