  1. Too many ads!!!

    Ad overload. I don't mind ads, but your interface takes it to new extremes, especially when I try check a folder with no messages in it.

  2. Stop "You may have overpaid" pop-up

    Give us a way to 'opt out' of the pop-up that keeps telling us that "you may have overpaid". I have no interest in the service. I pay for Yahoo mail. I'm sick of dismissing that pop-up!

  4. Ad blocker is for my protection, not to deny you ad revenue

    Until third-party ads stop being a significant source of malware, using an ad blocker is a smart, even necessary, protective measure. When you can assure me that it's not possible for a malicious ad to make its way into my browser via Yahoo or any ad network is uses, I'll be happy to add Yahoo to my whitelist.

  6. Stop asking me to accept the new privacy terms

    Every single time I log in to my email since April 11, 2018, I have to accept or dismiss the new Yahoo Oath privacy terms. Please make that stop. I've accepted multiple times.

  8. Filters

    You used to be able to "filter" emails straight from the body of the email. Now there's not an option for that. Instead you have to open the settings, create a filter, going back and forth to the actual message to create the filter. Bring back the option of "filter emails like this" in the body of the email.

  9. Import contacts from Facebook

    Bring back the option to import contacts from Facebook. It's a very important feature to get the contact details of Facebook Friends., It was Yahoo's unique capability that no one has.

  11. More trouble in NEW mail.

    After being TRICKED into upgrading to the new mail without a way to revert.
    
I have noticed: 

    1. No more bulk e-mail blocking. I can get like 30+ nasty an inappropriate junk sometimes.
    
2. Domain blocking has been disabled, I need that as said domains that are spamming do NOT care that spammers are mass spamming others. 

    3. My filters both the organization wise ones and blocks mysteriously got wiped. I can't fix the block list without the @domain block access.

  12. spam

    You need better spam filters. If I receive a legitimate email with bitcoin in the subject field, this is always followed by hundreds of spam emails related to bitcoin. Same for dating, any legit online dating emails are immediately followed by hundreds of dating spam.

    I also have Gmail, and that never happens in their system.

  13. Don't try to fix what ain't broken

    Stop messing with the e-mail system. It is was fine and worked great. Now it's nothing but delays, changes for no apparent reason. If something isn't broken, don't try to fix. Keep it simple and easy to use.

  15. Please restore the button for Classic mail. I don't want this version. Thanks! The button is missing.

    Restore the Classic mail button. It is missing. People want the Classic format. This is a major thing...not a minor issue. Thanks!

  16. I wouldn't mind the ads on the right side of my email screen if they would just be still. No spinning, blinking, buzzing or whirring.

  17. Many things are wrong with the new mail format/restore Classic mail. Thanks!

    Hard to use. Delete is off center and purple may not be for men/women. I can't write an e mail without it malfunctioning..putting things in strange locations...takes up too much space. Buttons are in strange locations. Side list is too faint. Classic mail was perfect. The new mail is far from perfect. We are not bored with Classic mail. Restore Classic mail to all. Thanks!

  18. filters

    Adding a filter remains inconvenient, as if designed in, like, 1993.? For example, if you want to add a filter, you might - naturally - want to create a new folder for your new filter. But did you think to do this before you went to create a filter? Most people wouldn't. Hint: WORKFLOW. As it is, you have to completely exit out of the filter thing, go back and add a folder, and then go back in and start adding a filter from scratch. There are much better ways to design this.

  19. Please stop violating my privacy by reading my mail to harvest it for advertisers. Please don't make me switch to Gmail!

    Please do not violate my privacy by reading my email. The fact that I am spending time on your site, reading your content and clicking on your ads should be enough. Please adopt industry standard behavior and stop this practice.

  20. Stop asking if I want Yahoo my home page when it ALREADY is my home page!

    Stop asking me to do something that has been done YEARS ago. We know you ARE able to detect the home page settings, so it is endlessly, needlessly, INTRUSIVE to keep prompting for an action that has ALREADY been effected years ago. Detect that I have done it and please stop the prompting. Just stop please.
