  1. Maintain inbox sort order please

    I prefer my inbox to be sorted by Unread messages. If I move off the Inbox to another folder and then return to the Inbox, the sort order is no longer by Unread messages, but instead by Date: Newest On Top. This is quite annoying to have to set the sort order each time I navigate to other folders.

  5. Tell me when something's in Spam

    You continue to put valid emails in my spam folder and what's worse, you don't tell me when I have something in there. So just by chance I look to find several emails that should have gone into my in box days or weeks ago. If you can't fix the fact that valid contacts should not go in the spam folder, then at least TELL ME WHEN THERE'S SOMETHING IN THERE.

  8. SPAM not SPAM

    Fix the problems with the spam folder getting my email that is not spam.
    I have posted this for Yahoo to see it and now convinced yahoo does not read this. I have been marking all the emails as not spam and still more of my emails go to the spam folder.

  12. 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.

  14. 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?

  17. How can we improve New Mail?

    Why do you have that question when nobody at yahoo reads these messages? I do not even get a response from yahoo. Fix the spam folder from getting my emails.

  19. I inadvertently delete an email, and rush to save it, it disappears from the Deleted Email file before my eyes. ARGGHHH.

    I inadvertently delete an email, and rush to save it, it disappears from the Deleted Email file before my eyes. ARGGHHH. This should not be happening, and from everything I have read, it isn't supposed to happen. So why, for months, does this occur? I keep losing emails that I want to move back to the inbox. They disappear before my eyes.

  20. Completely incompetent Yahoo Customer “Care” Team

    The Yahoo Customer “Care” Team are completely incompetent. I had emails go missing which I managed to recover via the Yahoo email app, however the same folder on the Yahoo web client (which is the version of Yahoo email I use the most) does not show all the emails from the exact same folder on the Yahoo email app. There is clearly a synchronization problem (not a general one – only with that specific folder on the Yahoo servers), yet the Yahoo Customer “Care” team simply keeps sending me the exact same emails which is of no use whatsoever and…
