  1. Classic Mail is better -- please let us keep it

    I have continued using Classic Mail for as long as I can because the overall look works so much better for me:

    1. I can see more of my folders and emails on the screen. The list of folders on the left is more compact.
    2. "Smart Views" stays hidden -- I don't have to change it each time like I do with "Views" in the new Mail. (Disabling this altogether would be even better.)
    3. The tabs at the top take up less space.
    4. The themes are more pleasing, IMO.

    Please consider keeping Classic Mail available for those…

  4. How can I hide the right hand side column permanently?

    I use the new Yahoo Mail web interface with "Right" side view message and the advertisement right hand side column pops up at every new email message view.
    Is yahoo so kind to make it go away permanently or they want us all to move over to gmail?

  5. new contacts list

    When I go to the contacts list I want to see ALL the names on the list not just a few for each letter of the alphabet with X more if I click on that tab

    YOU have no right to decide who should appear on my list and who should be hidden from view

    please stop messing with things, old system is better, new system is garbage!

    I have over 100 folders with filters setup, need some thing to indicate that I have unread messages with in the folders (like I did with OLD Yahoo classic), and as a older Paying member should be able too get that option!

  7. Add back Online Search in the Search Box

    Why! Why!!! don't you listen to your users.
    AND as many asked before, PLEASE add the Internet as a search option like before instead of JUST search our emails.

  8. Move Message folder dropdown list has too much space

    The dropdown folder list for the "Move" button has far too much space between folder names, and is too short vertically. I can see only 7 folders in the scrollable list; that space is wasted.

  9. When I open an email and read down - it jumps back to the top all the time

    Stop interfering when I am scrolling down and reading an email. The program keeps jumping me back to the top of the email.

  10. Add number of emails in trash and spam folders.

    The draft and inbox both show the number of emails in each folder. The trash and spam folder need to also show the number of emails the same way. Hovering over the folder to see the number of emails in them is a pain in the butt. You took away something so simple just to make a change. Why??? It is not an improvement.

  11. forward spam

    I need to be able to forward mail from my SPAM folder to appropriate antifraud government and business addresses. I do NOT want to have to move it to my inbox first and thus legitimize it.

  12. Please put the Archive,Move,Delete,and Spam functions back over to the left of the bar.

    Please put the Archive,Move,Delete,and Spam functions back over to the left of the bar, as that is where I think people naturally go for these functions because their cursor is mostly over the left two columns. I do not use reply or forward that much, so I wouldn't mind that being to the right of the other functions. Thank you.

  13. Advertising

    Hello,

    Using email via the website is an atrocious experience with all the advertising banners and ads masquerading as real inbox emails. I'm in disbelief as how this is even tolerable given the competition of Microsoft and Google. Fix the situation right now before you bleed all your subscribers. Remove the ads!

  16. Sort by Unread

    When i sort by unread, I want to go to the next unread message when I click the down arrow or delete a message. Right now it goes to the next oldest email, not the next unread one.

    Also I like being able to keep tabs of emails open if they are something I need to return back to soon.

    I also don't like the "Deals" header and things that show up above the body of the email now. Distracting and complicates getting to the actual message.

    All in all, I do not like the new mail format!!

  17. field separator lines

    WHY is the "Delete" button all the way on the far right???

    Keep it handy closer to the other message buttons. It's annoying to have to move that far for something that in the earlier verison of Yahoo was right in line with the other options and checkboxes.

  18. I think aii of your improvements are terrible, especially the format of contacts. Multiple entries show up for each individua.

    The new inbox is not nearly as easy to use as the previous one. Contacts as a sidebar to the Inbox page is stupid and their are multiple entries for every individual. That has to be a programming error. It would be nice if developers would keep Interface Pages like the Inbox, Contactes, Calendar, etc constant. New navigation and appearance do not add anything but miserey. We do not need to learn new stuff for viewing and finding existing information.

  19. please go directly to selected inbox email not to that new, confusing list of sent & received messages

    eliminate the intermediate list; just go directly to the selected email.
    PLEASe put the sign-out button back in the empty space atop the page, not in a drop-down.
