  1. Enable us to change sender's display name on incoming email - their name, not ours

    I receive emails from 'info', or 'customer service', or 'Bob', or other unidentifiable/common names, and want to be able to personalise regular/important contacts so their email display name is meaningful to me. I thought saving them as a Contact would mean the Name would be displayed, but they didn't work. Also tried editing the e-contact card...no luck. The Nickname seems an obvious choice to me - I imagine lots of people would want to identify incoming mail by the nickname they've given their contact, but that didn't work either.

    I know the official procedure is to ask them to change…

  3. filtering mail is incredibly worse. return to the old way!!!

    The old way of filtering was as good as it could be. The new way - with going to a new page and having to type in the filter conditions (which I can't seem to copy from the headers now. What's with that?) in a word: Sucks!! Return it to the old way!!

  4. Show exact number of emails in Inbox

    I *hate* that no even the Inbox folder is showing 999+ instead of the exact number if you have more than 1000 emails. Please reinstate the exact count!

  10. FONT IS TOO SMALL EVERYWHERE

    EVERYTHING is TOO small. I am 76 years old, and I can't read anything once I log into my Yahoo account. The list of folders are too small. The list of e-mails in my inbox are too small. The new version makes it TOO HARD to read anything when I simply log in.

    I haven't even opened an e-mail YET to see the OTHER problems. EVEN THE EXTREME while background and the new "themes" and colors hurt my eyes.

    How do I switch it back to the OLD Version so I am able to read my e-mails?

  11. E-mail Filters

    E-mail Filters:
    I must strongly recommend adding a filter system that allows the user to search and filter e-mails by key words. This feature should allow the user to select whether to search specific fields like "From", "To", "Subject", "Forward", and "Body". By typing in the key words they are looking for into a filter search bar, the user would be able to hide all messages except the ones found with that search. Then the user would be able to "select all" and perform actions with all selected messages at once instead of searching for hours to collect all e-mails…

  13. Yahoo accessibility to PWD

    USA and many other countries now know about regulation for PWD-people with disability. Many huge companies created special department to help PWD –Microsoft, HP, Verizon wireless, Verizon land line and some other companies.
    In USA there is ADA requirement –American with Disability Act that requires every company, organization make as much as possible to accommodate PWD.
    Sounds that Yahoo that serves people all over the world not truly aware about it. Now Yahoo force everyone use new Yahoo mail. Did Yahoo administration checked if it will accommodate people with different disabilities? Sounds not. Before implement new Yahoo mail, you should…

  16. Please highlight the folders with unread emails

    Only a number next to the folder showing there are unread emails. However the folder itself is not highlighted. Would be good to highlight/bold the folders to make them standout.

  17. Create New Contact by clicking on email address in an email

    You should be able to create a new contact by clicking on the email address in an email. You should be able to right click on an email address in an email and select an option to quickly add the email address as a new contact. Right now it is wayyy toooo many steps to add a new contact. I shouldn't have to cut and paste to get this simple job done...... Thank you.

  18. search does not search content

    the search function does not search the content of and email. For example if I just search the word "craigslist" it will only find emails with the word "craigslist" in the subject. If I have an email with no subject but in the body of the email there is a link for www.craigslist.org/xxxxxxxxxx, it will not find it.

    Thank you for contacting Yahoo.

    I do understand that you are facing issue with adding contacts in Yahoo mail on android.

    Unfortunately, what you're looking for isn't possible in the current version of the product. I can see how that'd be useful, though.

    You should post your suggestion to add that function on our feedback forum. Our product teams review the posts and look for ideas to include in future releases.

    However, you can add the new contacts on Yahoo mail desktop version and it the changes will reflect in your Yahoo mail android.

    This may not be the most…
