  3. Email notification

    I would like to be able to specify which email senders I would like notification from. I DO NOT want notification for every email I get but only those senders that I specify. That would be very, very helpful. Thank you.

  4. Thumbnail Photo for writing email

    I went ahead and paid for the upgraded subscription and I am now allowed to put a logo in my writing email. I would like to add a thumbnail photo to my signature, but it won't allow it. I have used yahoo for years and I find this frustrating because GMAIL doesn't require any form of payment and you can add logos and pictures to your writing email signature for no additional cost. Could you please add this feature?

  8. Re-sizing feature has been locked by Yahoo!

    When searching emails for all that fall into a specific folder the read pane below does not show the emails that are populated and the resizing drag-down does not work when trying to adjust it! ANOTHER FEATURE THAT YAHOO HAS ELIMINATED. I LIKE BEING ABLE TO SEE THE EMAILS IN THE READ PANE BELOW. AT ONE TIME NOT TOO LONG AGO ALL EMAILS POPULATED IN THAT LIST WOULD ALSO SHOW IN THE READ PANE BELOW IT WHICH NOW HAS THAT GENERIC ANNOYING GRAYED OUT ENVELOPE!

  9. Why can't i EASILY adjust the font in which i view emails? Why is everything so non-intuitive and complicated?

    This feature is available for writing emails - why not for viewing? I don't want to change the settings for my computer as a whole - but i do for emails - why isn't this something that is EASY to do (it is actually but obviously beyond your programmers perspective). Another case of something done to please the background programmers but not necessarily the users. Do your people actually USE this?

  12. save multiple emails

    Saving multiple emails to a File is a need expressed by me and some others that I see listed. I need many, probably 100 plus emails saved to a file that I may use as back up to further research. You have had others ask for a similar capability in the past, but there was no Answer or action taken to enable this capability. Printing each email and then scanning and saving to a file is wasted resources.

  18. Disable shortcut keys

    I would like to see a setting to disable shortcut keys. Often when I try to move a message, I start typing the folder name and inadvertently activate some shortcut because the cursor is not in the folder search bar.

  19. Narrower Banner Heading

    Love yahoo but maybe it can be improved by making the banner at the top a bit narrower. That way more of a message is showing. I'm using Firefox in Kubuntu.

  20. Swich off the first line of text, from email, in the overall view

    If there is a lot going on in your inbox, you want a good overview.
    Only de titel of the e-mails is enhough. It would be useful if you
    can switch off de first text off the email in the overall view.
    As you can do in gmail.
