  1. DropDown starts from 1st folder for moving email to a folder Mail Folders - idea

    If you have an iPad, the Yahoo Mail app does what I'm about to suggest. Frankly, it used to work this way (iPad) with Android and PC as well, but now doesn't. Idea: when moving an email from the Inbox to a folder, have it open to the last folder you moved an Inbox email to. This makes it easier to navigate to your target folder as you can move emails with nearby or the same folders without having to start from the first folder in the Drop Down list.

  2. Search - All Mail should include All Mail (Inbox + Sent Items + Other Folders)

    When running a search using the "All Mail" filter, only messages in the Inbox are included. "All Mail" needs to include "All" as the name says. This should include, Inbox, Sent Items, and Other Folders. It is not acceptable to have to run a separate search in the Sent Items folder when you are attempting to locate an email. This is especially critical when trying to to look into an email conversation.

  3. Completely incompetent Yahoo Customer “Care” Team

    The Yahoo Customer “Care” Team are completely incompetent. I had emails go missing which I managed to recover via the Yahoo email app, however the same folder on the Yahoo web client (which is the version of Yahoo email I use the most) does not show all the emails from the exact same folder on the Yahoo email app. There is clearly a synchronization problem (not a general one – only with that specific folder on the Yahoo servers), yet the Yahoo Customer “Care” team simply keeps sending me the exact same emails which is of no use whatsoever and…

  4. Folders can't be renamed

    When FOLDER has sub Folders it can not longer be "RENAMED" or "MOVED".
    One can MOVE or RENAME a FOLDER as long there aren't sub folders.
    This new feature is actually inconvenient.

  8. spam folder - A lot of companies want you to forward phishing emails to them.

    Would be nice to be able to do that from the spam folder. Instead of having to restore to inbox, forward the email and them report as spam again. Amazon Apple Sony etc they all have stop phishing email address to forward things to. So do banks.

  11. Stop marking emails as Spam that I have already indicated that I want to receive!

    I have several sites and product listings that regularly send me updates via email, and Yahoo keeps sending them directly to the Spam folder. I have marked them multiple times as Not Spam, and have also tried building "filters" several times to indicate that I want these emails delivered to my inbox. Yet Yahoo continues to send them directly to the Spam folder! This needs to stop, and/or have a definitive way for users to clearly indicate what is and isn't Spam, and have that respected by the system going forward. Right now, marking something as Not Spam seems to…

  12. Spam Folder "trash can" does not work to delete the spam folder contents.

    When you click on the little trash can on the spam folder, IT DOES NOTHING. It's supposed to delete the whole spam folder, but doesn't. IT NEEDS TO BE FIXED.

  18. Organising Folders

    Currently I have to move folders one by one: I would if adding a "Folders" view would help. I could then select several at once and move them.

  20. spam

    Spam folder does not update item count until the folder is actually slected.

    Since Yahoo has the habit of flagging my legit mail as spam (50% of what get flagged as spam is not), I need to know when I have new items in my spam folder. The count indicator does not update until after I've opened the folder for 10-20 seconds. So that means I need to manually check my spam box more often than my inbox so I don't miss mail.

    This is basic functionality that was lost with the forced move to the "improved" interface.
