  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 of us who prefer…

  4. 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!

  5. 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?

  6. I can't change the type of font in Yahoo.

    I simply cannot change the style of font when logged in yahoo. I can adjust the scale of the font through the browser, however this just makes the same font bigger.
    I can change the font when writing/replying to an email, but this still doesn't change the presentation of the font when viewed.
    It is almost impossible to read.

  7. Further to support case 02283766 (Keep action buttons in the same locations on different screens)

    I received a reply, but it wasn't relevant. The problem is not the wait every time something is clicked in webmail. The problem is that the Yahoo Mail button "Move" actually moves slightly to the right as a mail message opens, which means that clicking the button too soon means that the button "Archive" is clicked, which appears in exactly the same location as the button "Move" had appeared milliseconds before.

    My suggestion is to keep the action buttons (that appear on more than one of the Yahoo Mail screens) in exactly the same location on the different Yahoo Mail…

  8. Attachement

    Put attachment on top so no need to scroll until end of email to get the attachement.

  9. delete button static

    The ribbon containing "Archive, Move, Delete, Spam" moves left and right between messages. It would be best to keep this in a static location so that as i open mail and click a button to delete and the next mail opens, i don't have to move the mouse again to delete. I can keep it there and just keep clicking.

  10. mail navigation

    when i display my mail by "SORT", "UNREAD", it's fine until i navigate to another choice (like "SENT") and then come back to the inbox. the "UNREAD" choice is not holding during navigation to other mail options. it always did - now it does not. what is the problem!

  11. Need Unread count for all folders

    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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Attachment placement

    Please put Attachments at the Top, or make an Option to choose between attachments at top or bottom. When an email conversation or chain becomes quite long it is easy to miss a new attachment, and a wast of time and effort to scroll down to see it, or scroll back up after adding one.

  17. scroll position

    Recently, when using the web version, I'm seeing the scroll position preserved when I click from one message to the next. Please restore the old, correct behavior of loading each message at the top. If I scroll to the bottom of one message, that certainly doesn't mean that I want to begin the next message scrolled to the bottom. I always want to start at the top.

  18. Stop auto scrolling in my inbox!

    Scrolling through my Yahoo Mail inbox was made more difficult with the last 'update', but this newest one makes this service almost unusable. Now when I click to scroll down to look at emails in my inbox, it suddenly scrolls automatically on its own. It's impossible to browse through my messages that way, and like most of the new features wastes more of my time. I now have to do all sorts of acrobatics to stop the scrolling, and go back to the place in my inbox I actually want to go to. Yahoo Mail has become increasingly inaccessible for…

  20. Auto Highlighting

    Auto Highlighting. Please return auto highlighting. I like to close an email before moving or deleteing it. It's easier to just click "delete" after closing a just read email. Now when you close an email that highlight line shows up somewhere else in a random pattern. To keep that highlight on the email just read I have to "check" the box before reading. That adds an extra stroke I never remember to do.
