  1. A suggestion on the folder column resize issue......

    If Yahoo mail can't or won't allow resizing the folder, then perhaps it can "word wrap" the truncated names.

  2. By showing the contents of incoming email for which reply has been done

    Hi, Yahoo mail should display the contents of incoming email through which the message has been replied in sent folders. It will create better impact of messages on authorized Yahoo mailbox owner. Sometimes Yahoo doesn't display the replied message in sent folder as an inline text attachment. Yahoo should provide rich text editor on mobile browsers too. Yahoo should experiment by applying auto translation feature of English words to the user's nation's language without any download on the concerned devices. Thank you!

  3. Add folders with passwords or pass numbers

    Hi,

    I feel quite safe with my yahoo password. I think it would be great if maybe there was a second question like a memorable date of birth to access the account.

    I also receive a lot of emails from my banks. I would like to store them in my banking folder. It would be great for additional security if we could set up a further password or pass number for different folders in our yahoo account, for things like banking.

    This would protect our folders from the possibility of hackers gaining sensitive information.

    Please can you consider my idea…

  4. When filing emails in folders, the new format doesn't automatically bring up the last folder you used

    With classic email, if you file an email in a folder, the next time you go to do so it automatically brings up the last folder you used, which is SO helpful! With the new format, it starts you at the top of the folder list each time. Know that emails often come in groups and so when filing, having the last choice appear is really a nice feature.

  5. Want to see folder name for each email when I do a search

    Every day I do searches. When I do a search, I want to see what folder each email is in. If the email is in the Inbox, then I either read it, scan it, or delete it. Since there is no column that list the folder for each email, my clean-up effort takes much longer and is extremely frustrating.

    For example, if I do a search for emails from Amazon, I want to know which emails are in the inbox and which ones are already filed in a different folder. This helps in my search and clean up process tremendously.

  6. Stop Ads Over Personal Email on Left Side of Screen

    stop putting ads over my personal mail boxes on left side so that I can't see my own boxes. I would also like my personal email boxes to be up at the top of the left side of the screen instead of "views" which I never use.

  9. Option to turn off sent message being copied to SENT folder

    Option to turn off sent message being copied to SENT folder disappeared with new yahoo mail. The new mail automatically copies all sent messages to SENT folder. We need option to turn that off. It would be best if we have an option to turn that off from a particular source. Example - I have set my home security system to send e-mail from me to me when motion is detected. Now all those messages go to separate folder but same time all of them are sent to SENT folder also. This way it fills the folder with unwanted copies…

  11. unread email count

    unread email count on each mailbox no longer includes subfolders, which is highly misleading to those of us that use rules to auto-sort messages into the subfolders. Also, spam folder no longer shows a message count, so I don't know to look there for possible false-positives without actually going into the folder itself, which is a huge waste of time, especially with multiple mailboxes.

  13. Sort by Sender (inbox) and by Recipient (sent) folders

    Please add sort by sender/recipient back to the standard sort menu. The suggestion below to disable conversations is not user friendly. I can not imagine why you removed it.

  14. SPAM

    An email was sent to SPAM which I recognised after I deleted it. I would hope by my mistake that I would have been able to retrieve this email instantaneously if it was sent to deleted items. Can this be amended in a way as a question, 'are you sure?' without opening the email. What I currently do is hover the mouse over the recipient without clicking onto the email to be sure it is SPAM … unfortunately, I didn't do it this time :(

  15. Show total number of unread emails next to folders

    Show total number of unread emails next to folders. This way we don't have to view the folders to see if their is any unread email.

  16. Folders

    1) Allow more than 13 subfolders within a folder. 2) Add support for moving folders into subfolders. 3) Remember "Views" folder setting - show or hide. 4) Indent subfolders a couple more spaces - currently it is difficult to tell folders from subfolders because it is only indented one space.

  19. It would be nice to have an option to encrypt the personal folders.

    In case you leave your mail open or if it's hacked. A second layer of protection away from the inbox could protect sensitive data in the folders.

  20. "Move Mail to folder" keyboard scrolling disabled

    Can't scroll up or down using up/down arrow keys within "Move to Folder" drop-down menu/tree. One must use mouse+cursor on scroll bar or "down arrow scroll button" to manually show folders, then select+click on desired folder name to move message to folder. Old procedure would be to type "d" to display drop-down menu/tree, then hit "down arrow" key until desired folder would show and be highlighted, then hit "enter" key. Now must use mouse+cursor exclusively. Please fix. Thank you.
