  1. keyboard shortcut - spacebar and up down keys should retain previously marked mails

    Currently in Yahoo mail. we have the following behaviour for marking
    multiple messages in the Inbox.

    Scenario:

    Home page of Yahoo! Mail where we see all messages in the Inbox.

    Requirement
    Select multiple emails and then mark them as SPAM.

    Using the Mouse we can mark multiple emails and then mark them
    as SPAM.

    When we use keyboard shortcuts as follows

    <spacebar> mark current email (e1)
    <down key> moves to next email (e2)
    however when we navigate to e2 the e1 gets unmarked.
    This is an issue i see on google chrome

    Perhaps this needs to be fixed to allow…

  2. Put the trash icon back where it was. It's harder to use now.

  3. Unread

    Unread messages sent to other folders than Inbox are not counted. I have quite a number of folders, and I need them. It's a real pain to have to check the whole list each time.
    Seriously, this is NOT an UPgrade, but a DOWNgrade.

  6. left justify the Archive, Move, ... banner

    Left justify the 'Archive, Move...' buttons. You centered them and that requires more mouse movement, bad for carpal tunnel!

  9. Remove "search" from the email subject line in inbox

    Why is the search function still right next to every email subject line in the inbox when multiple people have asked that it be removed? And why can I not vote or comment on those suggestions? I am making a new post to reiterate that it is still annoying to try to open an email and get a search instead. Please fix.

  11. "MOVE" Button & Cursor Location

    When I click "Move", the cursor should default to the "find a folder" position, so I can start typing immediately, not have to click a second time. It's VERY ODD that you somehow missed this????

  12. Tabbed message disappears if alone

    If I open a message and leave it open and then visit another folder, Yahoo! Mail closes that message tab. This is very frustrating; I left that message tab open for a reason. This problem seems to go away if I have two message tabs open at the same time.

  13. Please reduce the line spacing in the leftmost pane

    In the old Yahoo Mail, I could see whether there was anything new in all my folders and in my inbox at a glance. Now I have to keep scrolling back and forth.

  14. Keep boxes checked on selected emails even if I accidentally open an email so I don't have to start over.

    It happens very regularly where I'll have over 40 messages selected for deletion and I accidentally miss the select box and open an email instead. While that's mildly annoying, it's very frustrating to start all over and have to select all of the messages again. I've read other submissions where people would like the check box bigger, but I would love if the boxes remained checked/selected after you back out of the email you accidentally opened.

  15. Sub-folders can't be named because another folder has the same name OUTSIDE of it??? You are either ****** or just lazy.

    This wasn't an issue IN THE OLD EMAIL. You know, the one that worked. So I can no longer organize my folders for a magazine I do where I have subfolders for each year under "Magazine"; 2017, 2018, etc. In each year's subfolder I have additional subfolders such as "Ads, Photos, Articles", etc. BUT NOW! for 2019, I can't name a folder "ads" because it exists outside of my new subfolder. As I said, ****** or LAZY!!

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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! :-)

  20. 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.
