  1. highlight disappears on folders before mouse cursor can click on the folder

    just recently (possibly after an MS windows 10 or Firefox update), yahoo mail is unhighlighting folders whenever i scroll down the folders list with the mouse. in the past, the folder remained highlighted until i actually clicked on the folder. now, it just unhighlights without clicking on the folders. i've tried the suggestions in the help section. i even tried a different browser, but no change. as stated, both windows and firefox have recently been updated just before this started to happen. it also happens on MS Edge.

  4. Attachment folder

    Folder for Attachments:

    We need to be able to find our attachments: documents and pictures that have ben sent to us or we emailed them. That way we have quick access to them without having to search by the subject.

  5. How am I supposed to unsubscribe now that you disabled links for Spam emails?!!

    Yahoo, I am stuck receiving Spam forever if I can't unsubscribe from the lists. Stop disabling links in Spam emails or provide an Unsubscribe button next to the header like you used to. Very frustrating!

  9. Inbox notifications need to be expanded to inbox subfolders.

    Inbox sub folders provide no notification of new mail. They should be included, as many direct inbound mail to these folders but miss the notification.

  10. It's safe

    My filter puts an e-mail into a Folder. I open the e-mail and see a banner saying they weren't sure it is Spam or not, but gave it to me because of my contacts. I click on "It's safe." It immediately moves the e-mail back to Inbox, so that I have to manually re-move it into the Folder myself. Seems to be a bug, or at least poor design.

  12. bold

    Make unread messages stand out. You used to put the subjects of unread messages in a bold font in message listings. Now it's very difficult to tell which are read and which are unread.

  13. what is the difference between the number of unread messages (999+, ugh!) being orange vs being grey?

    I think i's a shame that no one writes user manuals any more, let alone with a page that describes the user interface and its quirks (all user interfaces have quirks). I understand "999+" next to a folder name means "lots of unread e-mails and we can't count higher than 1000," but what is the difference between that number being orange or being grey? I've been doing a lot of folder reorganizing to break up a huge inbox, and two orange ones eventually changed to grey, so I'm guessing some sort of operation was still pending when they were orange,…

  14. Need to show the name of the folder that an email was moved to when searching for it.

    When searching emails, you need to show the destination folder name whether it is Inbox or the Folder that the email had been moved to.

  15. unneeded folders

    why in the world would you have an "unread" folder? if its unread, it should just show up in inbox or spam. why make life more complicated than it needs to be?

  17. Filter Messages Like this

    I get a lot of advertising emails. I don't consider them Spam, but want to filter them into an Advertising folder that I setup. However to do this, I have to do this 1 email at a time. I would prefer to select multiple messages and do this all together. Thanks

  18. Favorite folder

    I am missing a Folder favorite function in Yahoo, like what Hotmail has. Much used folders can there be dragged up to just above the Folders. I can not understand why Yahoo is not doing this improvement! Please explain.

  20. Please correct

    Hey! The mail is good. I can’t understand one thing, why there is a video in every empty folder. They load memory and the browser freezes. Registered since 2012. Everyone is happy. Thank you!
