  2. 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.

  3. 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).

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. Folder name search & open "shortcut" button

    I have created more than 300 folders in Yahoo mail. To open a particular folder , i have to scroll through entire list to find my desired folder. It takes lot of time & energy. My idea is that Yahoo should provide a shortcut button on top, to find and open a desired folder .....

  12. Retrofit rules/filters

    It would be brilliant if there was an option to run the filters after a new rule was created to allow the mails that the filter pertains to, file the mails.

  13. Where did autofocus go with move to another folder flow?

    I like the folders feature and use it a lot. Historically, when I would put focus on a specific email, use the "Shift+D" shortcut to open the choose folder popup, the cursor focus would automatically go into the folder search field. Now it stays with the main browser. Something changed recently that caused this but please return the auto-focus. For someone like me who files emails many times a day, having extra clicks to undo the other browser functionality I just enacted by continuing to type assuming I had auto focus on the folder search field, and then clicking in…

  14. Advertising embedded in a folder..

    I am wondering if anyone else has had advertising embedded in a private folder in their Yahoo account? This is the second time it has appeared..once for a dating agency and this time for an online language school. The advertisements will appear in among emails I have stored for future reference. They are not able to be removed, but I found that once you go to the advertiser's site, the advertisement then goes. I find it a complete intrusion and have written the latest company and told them as much.

  15. VIP is now spam

    Yahoo tells you can mark important email addresses as VIP so that you always get them and get an alert when they are received. All of my VIP emails now go to the spam folder so I have to go digging for them. I reached out for help but didn’t get any so now I’m going to have to switch everything over to Gmail after using for yahoo for almost a decade. Get it together yahoo!

  16. Archive and un-archive messages

    Archive and un-archive messages in Yahoo Mail
    Due to a mistake, a message was archived from the Sent folder. When the message was unarchived, it was moved to the inbox folder, there is no possibility to move the message to the original folder, that is, the sent folder.
    It might be a good idea to modify this condition and restore the archived messages directly to the original folders from where they were archived.

  18. Ability to make in the inbox/folders view wider

    Would like to be able to expand the Inbox/folders column wider, at least on a wide-screen display.

    Also please add more indentation for nested folders - currently they are virtually indistinguishable from parent folders.
    Many thanks in advance.

    "Settings" go nowhere
    Four times I've gone to "filters", under "settings", to stop a subscription newsletter from always (as of last week) going into "Spam". But still, every day, the several daily messages from this hometown newspaper go straight into "Spam". Every time, I mark each message as "Not Spam". It does no good. Yahoo Mail is trying as hard as it can to be as as Outlook. Plus, WHY do I have to "agree" to some obscure voice-command-acceptance protocol and "sign in", to comment, when I am
