  2. Put the number of unread mails in my Spam folder

    I keep forgetting to check my Spam folder until I have to send something to it. Sometimes this is over a week, as you are pretty good at weeding things out. However, this also means I sometimes miss for over a week emails that you have mistakenly weeded out. If you put back the number of unread for the Spam folder it would remind me to check whenever there were more than a couple of emails in there, and so not potentially miss the erroneously Spammed messages.

  3. Why I can not store my important receipts and other files on my storage are erased?

    All my folders are erased, including my receipt. I paid my security for 2 years, but now they say I have to pay again and Yahoo erased my receipts?

  4. Display the Folder Location in Search Results

    After performing a search, simply display, as part of the results, the folder in which the email message(s) can be found. Perhaps a folder column in the list view...

  6. Viewing/Searching Inbox by folder

    When I click 'Search' it gives results from all folders and the inbox with no indication of where the message "lives'.

    It defeats the purpose a bit of the search if after I've done the search I can't see where it is housed.

    It would be MUCH more helpful if instead of the results showing "yahoo" to the right of the message teaser, it shows which folder the the messages are actually in. (We already know we are in Yahoo, we don't need an extra reminder, we need folders).

  8. Can't RENAME folders. Can't MOVE folders. CAN create folders and subfolders.

  11. spam

    Yahoo's spam folder management is horrible. I keep having important e-mails go to spam and garbage going to my inbox. Yahoo could have simple spam rules setup where if one domain name based e-mail is allowed to the inbox, all of the people from that domain name based email should be allowed in the inbox.

  13. All your background colors wash out or make the message unreadable in the email.


    1. All your dark background color wash out email messages, A 75 year old eyesight is not that of a 17 year old. How about old dark characters on a white background which has been around for 300 years?

    2. You do not allow deletion of an original phone number for which the phone is now dead and Cannot be forgotten by yahoo.

  16. restore

    Partial restore.
    One of the files of my mail was deleted. Your customer care team explained that all I could get was an attempt at complete restore at a certain date (under usual reservations).
    As it only happened to the folder with the least messages, I declined.

    As the postman always rings twice, please provide for the opportunity to restore a specific folder.

  20. Can I ask if you can put an A to Z

    Can I ask if you can put an A to Z on the left side of the yahoo page. Under Folders. This would make it faster for us to find the things we have saved. Thank you for your help and have a nice safe night.
