  1. Create icon in every folder and have the ability to change color

    It would be nice if every folder and subfolder had an icon and we have the ability to change its color.

  3. The folder filing system is not very good. You can create folders, then sub-folders, but can not use the same name in a subfolder. For exa

    The folder filing system is not effective. You can create folders, then subfolders and then subfolders. However the second subfolder can not have the same name. For example Home/lawn/2018 can be created but when trying to create Home/house/2018 you can't create the second 2018. Makes it impossible to file messages from the same year into different categories. I believe this option used to be available but has been removed in recent weeks.

  4. automatic folders

    Automatic folders please. When I have more than three unread messages from the same sender, I would like a folder to automatically be created and all messages from that sender will be put in there from that moment forward.

    I receive many emails from various businesses where they have sales on products. Right now I have over 1,000 unread mails, the majority being these sale emails. I don't keep up with them as I am not always in need of something from a particular store.

    And I NEED a place for them to go and be stored, where I can…

  5. Sorting mails by size

    Bring "sort mail by size" option back. It's perhaps the Yahoo feature I miss the most.

  6. rename a folder with subfolders

    renaming a folder with subfolders (or not) is crucial for organizing emails and boosting productivity, now that renaming a folder is no longer allowed once it has one or more subfolders.

  10. Smart View was important to me & is no longer availabe

    I do not like the new version. When switched to the new i was told that i could go back if i did not like the new. There is no apparent way to do this. This is dishonest or just incompetence. What i want is the Smart View of my previous version which is not listed under views in the new version. I trade stocks. With the old version all issues of all advisory e-letters and alerts from a given publisher were in one place. There i could easily review past emails for investing and trading. This is not possible…

  12. Folders (large) display

    Smaller/Medium/Large display setting option (just like under settings for messages). It's too big and I have to keep scrolling down.

  14. I can not download word or excel files neither I can not prewiev

    Not necessary a prewiev on the right, direct downloading is better. Losing time. Because letters are very small when to prewiev on the same page.

  16. All emails inbox

    Make a master inbox like the Apple mail app. With this inbox you’d be able to see all new mail from all accounts in one inbox. If you want to see individual inbox’s then you could select them like you have to now.

  17. Folder arrangement

    Good Job. Has a good layout and new themes make things lively and more visible. I would however like to be able to re-arrange the folders to an order that is more in line with my use rather simply alphabetically. I tried but if it has that functionality I couldn't find it.
    Thanks and keep up the good work.

  19. DISPLAY FULL FOLDER PATH

    When moving messages to folders and I type a sub-folder name, one or more folders with that name show up but when hovering my mouse over one of the names only THAT NAME shows up not the full folder path. I may have many sub folders named "comments" so I want to make sure I pick the right destination. This feature was OK in the current mail format but changed for the NEW format. Please change it back.
