  1. Maintain inbox sort order please

    I prefer my inbox to be sorted by Unread messages. If I move off the Inbox to another folder and then return to the Inbox, the sort order is no longer by Unread messages, but instead by Date: Newest On Top. This is quite annoying to have to set the sort order each time I navigate to other folders.

  3. 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.

  5. Views

    I understand you are not willing to allow your customers the option of deleting Views but can you at least allow us to move it under our Folders so we don't have to "Hide" it everytime we sign into Yahoo mail?

  10. Apply Custom email filters *before* Spam filter

    I have 20+ filters set up for specific domains, showing that I clearly want/expect emails from them.

    These emails should not end up in the Spam folder. I don't care what your 'statistical learning' thinks is spam. The defined filter clearly shows I WANT THE EMAIL. Your system should not override that.

    The only exception I can think of would be if spam filter knows the email is dangerous. Not 'undesired' but destructive. In that case, perhaps overrule the Filter. But if the email is safe, my Filters should trump your statistics.

    Alternatively (or in addition): Put…

  11. Need a 'Sent To' column

    It would be nice to have a 'sent to' column when viewing the sent folder. If I have 50 emails in there, all sent to different people, it would be nice to have a sent to column so I can sort by who I sent the emails to. It is so cumbersome right now. I don't like using the search field because it brings up everything when I only want to view the sent to emails.

  13. move emails

    When you select a folder to move and email, have the Move drop down remember the last window. So if another email it to be moved to the same folder, when the Move drop down is selected, the folder name is right there, no scrolling. Now the Move drop down always starts from the top. The old email system remember the last selection.

  14. moving emails to a folder

    In the old Yahoo mail, when you moved an Email to a folder, Yahoo mail remembered that and the next time you clicked to move an Email, the folder list came up with the folder you previously moved to visible. Now, it goes back to the top. This is an annoying change and a loss in functionality. At least, there should be an option in settings to select this behavior.

  16. archive/un-archive individual emails or entire folders into archive subfolders

    Would be efficient to direct emails or entire folders to Archive/un-Archive into sub-folders. Computers were invented to make things like this easier than hunting/finding things manually.

  20. Path statements

    Remember the " path" statements in the Autoexec.bat file?

    Have you thought of a path statement or automatic path to the folders for emails to be categorized?

    Automatic paths to folders will eliminate long lists of emails, that is why I am bringing that to your attention.
