  1. match folder view settings / Customize (Sent) subfolder columns

    When I organize e-mails I've sent under subfolders, I am only seeing the sender ("From" column)
    I'd like to change the column to "To"
    In other words, I'd like to see to whom I've sent an email ("to" column) instead of just seeing repeatedly my name ("from" column)

    or an option to match folder view settings

    I keep seeing the same stupid video about allergy for last three months when there is no email in any mail folder. Is it hard to find and show any other video ad?

  3. For the Inbox and other folders, please display the Send times on all messages, including those received before the current date.

    For the Inbox and other folders, please display the Send times on all messages, including those received before the current date. This is important for finding specific items when there are multiple ones with the same title on a given day.

  5. SPAM Auto Delete Option

    There should be an auto delete option where a user can set the time frame in which to delete mail. I don't want to keep SPAM in my folder for 30 days. There should be an option where I can set an auto delete option for my SPAM folder to have the mail deleted every day.

  6. Sub-Folder Name Visual Enhancements

    In my yahoo mail account, I use a lot of different Folders. And under many of those I have Sub-Folders.
    But when opening the Folder to display the Sub-Folder names, they are closely aligned with the other Folders, making it a bit difficult to tell which ones are really the Sub-Folders.

    It would be a nice enhancement if the Sub-Folder names could have some slight color shading or other visual changes to make it easy to tell those are Sub-Folders of a Folder name just above it.

    Just thought some visual changes to the Sub-Folder names might help.

  7. Folder editing functions need to be updated ASAP!

    Why is the ability to edit folders not more robust and up to date? Once a folder has subfolders, I can't edit the name without removing the subfolders. Why is that?

    And why can't I arrange the folders in a custom order, from top to bottom, of importance to me and not just alphabetically? This seems pretty basic and very surprising that Yahoo does not have these features.

    And the "Views" folder should be at the bottom.

    Please fix these issues asap.

  8. spam

    Hi. I would like to make the following proposition : please enable only the unsubscribe links in the e-mails directed in the spam folder.This would be very useful. Now to unsubscribe from such mail it must be moved in the inbox folder and after that this link becomes active.

  11. Left box checking to delete items

    When clicking the check box on the left side to mark emails for a mass command (usually deletion), on occasion, I mis-click and click outside the box and open the email instead. Enlarge the check box and disable the panel area around it so that the email doesn't open. This isn't just a convenience for your users, it's also a security concern for emails that have viruses in them. At this point, it must be common knowledge amongst hackers that accidentally opening emails is a regular occurrence for yahoo email users which encourages spam and other malware to be sent…

  13. Allow messages to be moved back to the Sent folder

    Since I am not able to vote on the other options out there, here goes. I accidentally moved a message out of the Sent folder, but am not allowed to move it back. If you are going to allow messages to be moved out, please allow them to be moved BACK. Thank you.

  15. email folder

    When you select an email and then select "Move" then scroll to the folder to the email should be moved into is OK. But if you want to move another email into that same folder, the list starts from the top and you have to scroll down to the folder again for it to be selected.

    A while back, when you selected a folder, moved the email and came back to move another email, that folder was still in the selection box. Please go back to the old way.

    Thanks...

  17. Using filters with Subfolders changes all filters each time you add a new subfolder

    Today I decided to create subfolders to better organize my email.
    Big mistake.

    Now each time I create / move a folder to a subfolder, all my filters using a subfolder are changed to move to inbox!!!!.
    I have to manually edit all the filters again to select the correct subfolder.

    PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!

  19. Remove embedded YouTube video / YouTube iframe when spam folder is empty

    When the spam folder has been emptied, an YouTube video appears. This unnecessarily wastes bandwidth without having benefits for mail users.
    Removing the YouTube embedding is better both for users who want to save bandwidth for more useful purposes and for the environment.
