  4. problems with new version

    Delete key from keyboard no longer works.

    And after deleting an email from the inbox it opens an email in the reading pane that I moved to a subfolder...multiple subfolders depending on the order of the emails received and which email in the inbox is being deleted.
    i.e i received and email about my solar system that I moved to the "home" folder. I then deleted the next email i received (based on time stamp, so above the one I just moved) and the email about my solar system opens in the reading pane.

  5. Message deleted Undo

    Message Deleted - UNDO this is a simple fix. Move the option to UNDO (or allow the user to move the box) up and out of the way. Between the Search button and the user profile is a good location for it. It lays over top of other tabs when I have several messages open, and it is a performance issue. Simple, please fix!

  6. buttons disappear

    Please get rid of the disappearing toolbar when composing an email. Just leave it there. I don't want to have to scroll up several times for it to reappear. That's annoying.

  7. COLOR OPTIONS FOR STARS

    Desperately need more ways to flag / star an e-mail. Please add additional shapes or colors for better organization.

    We currently use Yahoo Mail Pro for business and our shop shares a single e-mail account that our customers send to. Having additional flag options would make it so much easier to organize e-mails per employee.

    (For example: Everything marked red would be jobs Josh is responsible for and green would be Andrew's current jobs / or blue are jobs waiting for a customer response and yellow are jobs that need proofs sent to etc.)

    This would let us quickly see…

  9. stop making backspace delete mails

    Not sure when this feature started, but I've deleted multiple emails on accident now because I use my backspace button to get me back to the Inbox after reading an email. (I have a chrome plugin for backspace to go back a page) Now it looks like my backspace deletes mails. And if you don't click undo quickly enough, they don't seem to even be in the trash. They're gone as far as I can tell. Please consider stopping using the backspace to delete. This is very ******* me. Thanks.

  10. improve by showing the full screen not only the most recent emails

    Improve the email view screen by making it bigger and include a calendar on the right hand side to check specific emails dates.

  14. Scrolling

    Having to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to send and email is kind of annoying. Making a static bar would be amazing! The colors are pretty though! The flashing documents button is weird. Not a fan, but helpful feature! Do you guys have anything like Google Drive?

  15. change layout of a REPLY

    Fix problem where mouse is over the Email address when Replying. When I hit "REPLY", I cannot start typing my text.!!!
    The mouse location from hitting REPLY is over the email address and a bubble pops up. This prevents me from typing. This is really poor layout on the part of the design of your new email.

  18. top inbox message still disappears

    Top inbox message still disappears from display almost all the time. Yahoo closed a bunch of posts complaining about this but didn't actually fix the problem. Working on Chrome from a Win7 laptop.

  19. When i delete emails I just want to delete the first 50 not all of them as i need to keep some of the earlier ones.

    I want the deleting of emails how it was before. I do NOT want to delete ALL emails at once as I want to keep some for further reference. Is there an option to just delete the first 50.
