  3. Slow speed

    I don't mind the new format but I do mind the often slow web speeds of Yahoo.

  4. Improve your Spam filters PLEASE.

    I nearly deleted my account because of it. I'm sick to the back teeth of receiving emails regarding African Lottery wins, being the beneficiary of an inheritance, dodgy high end labelled goods at ridiculously low prices and the links to **** dating sites. It's shameful that Yahoo, who have some of the best IT guys in the world working for them can't get this right. My computer is a family computer that my kid has access to.

  5. Get rid of it. EVERY time yahoo changes things they are worse.

    Get rid of it. EVERY time yahoo changes things they are worse. Date separation ( earlier in the week, etc) makes mail harder to read, is a distraction, and WORST of all, is completely irrelevant. It unnecessarily spreads the reading field. The red delete email trash bin is too far away and covers the date when hovered over. it should be with all the other functions -'mark as read','search emails', and 'yellow star' this email........RIGHT WHERE IT USED TO BE!!!!! And adds in the middle of my email list instead of only at the top???????

  9. Remove the 'Visit Site' link from the top of my emails

    I note today that my emails now have a "Visit Site" link at the top of each and every one. I guess that no-one at Yahoo has tested the usefulness of this update whilst using a slow internet connection! Let me tell you it is absolutely awful, since it loads up well after the rest of the email content and causes the page to return to the top after I have scrolled down to view the content. PLEASE AMEND this terrible update... either remove it as it's utterly useless (if the sender wants me to visit their website, there WILL…

  10. Filters acting on individual emails, folder action filters

    Filters: add the option to make redirection of individual mail messages, e.g. like in this example:

    if E-address is ".eg" then "send copy/forward" to ".rofl, also other standard actions based on predefined sender/recipient addresses.

    Add folder action filters:


    1. Folder A receives messages (expand options for kinds of messages, their content, other attributes)


    2. Add an action: ("add other filters" action, individual actions - batch-delete, batch-redirect/batch-forward/batch-reply/download attachments/create events and reminders/show notifications)

  11. Go back to the square with the app list

    On this account there's a black toolbar, I would rather have it like it was before the change was made! Could you fix that on your end?

  15. AD's

    The ad's slow the email process, during the composition of an email as the ad changes it freezes the program. There is no need to have ad's in the email section, seriously how many people do you honestly think watch the at all? I'll give this **** a chance, but there should be an option to change back .

  16. MAJOR SECURITY THREAT on mail.yahoo.com

    You have a security exploit on the mail.yahoo.com website. It is in the ad-generator portion of the page, which you lease/sell to third party vendors. The ad vendors are able to place malware into the ad code, so during an ad refresh on the page, it redirects the whole page to a malware/"click here to close"/virus website. THIS IS A MAJOR SECURITY THREAT. it tracks across 4 browsers (Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) and 3 operating systems. The flaw is in mail.yahoo.com...not the end-user. You can fix this in server side/client side coding if you have a good coder who puts…

  17. Search Results

    Search results only shows sub-folders locations - not the main folder & sub-folder as the Classic Mail version did. I use Yahoo for business and have main folders and sub-folders for organization and Client records. So the main folder for location along with the sub-folder is extremely important to view for the results. Please fix that!
    Also, When getting results from a search when your message layout is to the right, can you bring back it viewing as full screen like Classic Mail did? It doesn"t make sense to only be able to view partial results. Thank you!

  19. Slow Performace

    Too annoying and not even responsive when needed... Want to get ride off but couldn't. Either fix or remove your mail service. Everybody is fade up. There is no comparison in between gmail and yahoo. Gmail is much much better. At least make ymail quite lighter and fast responsive .

  20. subject bar

    Please remove the "search" icon from subject bar. It requires careful avoidance if one wishes to view the preview without opening the email. I have no idea what the function is, since it only opens another line with a selection of highlighted words.
