  2. Add "Run Now" button for one or all filters to test them.

    When adding a new filter, it is very important to TEST the filter. The fact that you cannot immediately run a filter means that all the effort to add a filter can be for no good when you have to wait for couple weeks to see if it worked or not. I am a programmer and would be shot if I did not have a "Run Now" button. Cheers, Ron ********* , LC CLS.

  4. Upgrade spam filters (Allow custom filters to send to spam folder)

    More spam is getting through than usual. Spammers have upgraded, now it's the filters' turn. And in the mean time, while were waiting for Yahoo to upgrade their own filters, I don't want to have to create a second spam folder when I specify a custom filter (the only folder I can't send custom filtered mail to is spam; not convenient when spam filters are slacking off).

  5. Please add the Sender Column back

    You removed the column that shows who is sending the email. This was a very useful feature for me. Now I don't know who is sending me an email until I click on it which is unacceptable. Please add the sender column back!

  6. please add Option to Turn Off hover-bubble descriptions, they get in the way.

    I understand the inbuilt hover-bubble description boxes can be useful, like when it says how many unread emails there are in a folder --but they can also be annoying. Especially the "checkbox, not checked" description that pops up every time my mouse hovers for a nanosecond near a checkbox. When I'm checking multiple emails it gets obnoxious and I would really like the option to make them stop, please.

  7. The New Yahoo email is not efficient in attaching files. I personally tried attaching PDF file but it took a lot of time

    Yahoo should work on solving the file attachment.
    The previous version was much more efficient than the current one.

  8. Choosing Recipients

    When sending a message, I can choose recipients from my contacts. There the names are alphabetical by last name, but it takes a long time to scroll down the list.

  10. "Return to In Box"

    When selecting ONE message to be deleted, others go to trash also. I'm tired of searching Trash and Spam to find messages that I want to keep in my inbox. I've resorted to starring those, so that they're easier to find. Please fix this...I never had this problem on the old platform.

  12. Browser window sizing and spacing.

    Window sizing must allow more viewing space, especially for smaller screens. The top toolbar is currently too thick, advertisement section also takes up space when preview pane is added.

  15. Inbox look is frustrating. Subject line should contain only subject, not the message text

    Inbox look is a mess. There is email contents within subject line in the inbox view. Please remove message contents and leave only message subject.

  16. Please return the calendar icon to the way it was before!

    As above - the date is displayed far too faintly to be read at a glance...makes this new Yahoo mail format very irritating

  17. Allow resizing of Folder panel

    The new format has a worse user experience than the classic format.. My folder names cannot be more than 15 characters if I want the full name to display. The new format should allow the folder panel to be resized so that the user can see the full folder names.

    When I noticed this a while ago, I switched back to the classic format which allowed me to see my full folder names. My email was apparently forced to the new format recently, and I wanted to switch back to the classic mode, but that option is gone now. Is…

  19. disable the autoplay video

    Disable the autoplaying video. It's rude, intrusive, and completely uncalled for.

  20. Under old Yahoo, I could see a history of documents & photos shared with a contact when I opened a single email. Where is this option now?

    Under the old version of Yahoo when I opened an email, I could see a history of the number of emails, documents (attachments) and photos shared with a single contact to the right of message opened. It made it easy to search for an attachment or document without having to open up individual emails searching for the right one.
