  3. 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…

  5. 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.

  9. Contacts should stay on the main mail page.

    It's mail. I shouldn't have to open up a new browser tab.

  10. 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???????

  12. EACH NEW ADD CAUSES A BLANK BROWSER PAGE TO OPEN! THIS MUST STOP!!!

    Each time a new add opens to the right of my e-mails, a new blank browser page opens. I have to close the new page (which closes the add), and within a second or less, another new add pops open, which causes yet another blank browser page to open, which I have to close. This has happened as many as 12 times within a 10 second period, which is very disruptive! There has to be a way to put a stop to this! If Yahoo is going to make money by posting adds, they also need to support those who…

  14. Go back to my old format; ability to print the whole page from the drop-down and ability to open my attachment before sending my email.

    Go back to my old format; bring back print option in the drop-down; ability to print the whole screen; ability to open my attachment before sending my email; and there are emails I couldn't read the whole page and had to move the bottom bar. My husband said he can do all these with gmail. Why make changes that make things difficult and time consuming?

  17. Block addresses by domain name

    Blocking individual addresses does little to stop the plethora of SPAM these days. If we can add a block by domain name feature, this would help cut down on repeat spammer domains.

  18. Where are the contacts?

    Every time I try to access my contacts, the mail system opens a new window and takes me back to the old version of Yahoo. This is very annoying.

    Also, something weird has been happening with my mail lists. I haven't changed a thing, but suddenly one of my longer list is missing about 30 addresses. I just tried to send out an email to one of my lists with about 10 people on it. Only 5 people actually received the email, despite me very carefully checking to see that I had clicked on the appropriate email list. Again, very…

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

  20. all the backgrounds are too dark and the white background is too bright

    provide some pastel coloured backgrounds which are more restful on the eyes, particularly for more elderly users!
