  1. New format does not return to the top of the inbox to display the latest emails after viewing earlier ones (same day). An "improvement"?

    Well, let's see: when returning to "inbox", shouldn't emails display beginning with the latest? Not several emails down from the top? You know, just a thought. Pls stop w/the "improved looks", bells/whistles and stick with the basics.

  3. Be able to turn off left column

    I dont need the left-most column to be available all the time. It could be made like Microsoft OneNote. It can open out with the click some icon but 99% it can remain closed. This helps to increase the screen real-estate space.

  4. Why is the top ad scrolling in my email messages?

    Since the update (that must have taken place sometime yesterday) I now have the Ad at the top of my email messages scrolling down the page instead of staying at the top. It's getting in my way to clean out my inbox, and quite frankly ANNOYING me! I dislike Hotmail/MS, and GMAIL and now you guys are monkeying around with the only email set up I actually can stand to use. Knock it off! Please and thank you! :-)

  5. Return option to sign out from email app.

    Removing the option to sign out from the email app is ridiculous and underhanded as it forces users to navigate to a page with poor quality news content to sign out. Even worse, this may pose a risk to security to those who may forget to sign out on account of not having a readily available sign out option, especially if their browsers do not sign them out upon exit.

  7. Let me click on a link to make a booking or pay an account

    Please let me click on a link instead of directing me to the Yahoo app which I have installed twice but which won't let me do anything!! Plus you keep asking for verification which I do and still nothing works. I just want things to simple and easy as they previously were.

  9. sorting

    Enable sort by Sender AND Unread AND date at the same time - the way the original basic Yahoo mail could. This was a basic feature available in all Pop3 type email software such as Outlook. I shouldn't have to move all my Unread emails into a separate folder, in order to sort them by sender and delete multiple emails at once. This is a basic feature that should be available.

  10. Editing views // Bring back "People"

    I used to rely on the "People" views tab on the left, which is why I never upgraded to the new Yahoo. I see it still has not been added, which is going to make answering emails very laborious. Please bring back the "People" filter, or give us an easy way to edit which tabs are under "views". Thanks for reading.

  12. Move "Folders" ahead of "Views"

    Move "Folders" ahead of "Views." Folders are used constantly. Thank you.

  15. Remove bug due to sort by "unread" flag

    When emails are sorted by "unread" flag, if you enter a message to read it, then leave the mail window and then go back to the mail window, you will see a different message. All messages, from the one you had originally selected to the current one shown in the yahoo mail window, are then flagged as "read", whereas you have no read them yet.

  16. TABS

    You still haven't fixed this!!!!!!!!!!

    TABS - They can disappear by simply pressing "x" when done, but I often need to toggle back to another email for reference when viewing/composing the currently opened email. Bring back the tabs up top that let you view an email without having to close the one you're in, going back to whatever folder the other one is in, and opening it, then closing it to go back to the original.

  17. CTRL-Click

    CTRL-Click on every other webpage opens the selected item in a new tab, Yahoo mail used to do this too - it's very uselful to scan-read a bunch of emails qwuickkly, delete the ones that are of no interest and then be able to read the rest properly.

    With the new interface, CTRL-Click simply "Selects" the item(s).
    I'mm sure I'll get used to it, but what were you thinking when you went off-standard like that? It adds a learning curve, for no actual benefit, and it takes away usability.

    Please reinstate CTRL-Click as every other webpage uses it!

  18. Please STOP auto-scrolling the message list

    Please STOP auto-scrolling the message list or make it an option to do so. Do not auto-scroll after updating the particular box or after the user has deleted or read a message, etc. I am constantly starting to click on the "delete icon" for a message in the message list and just before I click the list auto-scrolls and I end up clicking delete on the wrong message. Then I have to go find in it in the Trash folder.

  19. The arrows for up/down for emails are too small

    The arrows for navigating emails are too small, difficult to set mouse exactly on them.
