  1. Thank you for giving back the folder sorting option. Now, please make the sort effective ONLY on a single forlder!

    Way back, Yahoo had a very convenient option to sort messages in a folder with the option saved for future. Then, sorting disappeared. Now, it is back (thank you!) yet, when I sort one folder, the sorting is applied to all the others - makes little sense to me. I want sorting to be effective for a single folder and stay such until I change it. Thanks.

  2. Thought this might be an improvement...NOT!! I have XP SP3 (btw) and after sending an email, this "New/Improved Version" highlig jumps into

    Thought this "New/Improved Version" might be an improvement...NOT!! I have XP SP3 (btw) and after sending an email, this highlights an email and won't stop that until I go into the email (where the COMPLETE email is highlighted???) and then select an open area to un-highlight the contents. How do I switch back?!?!? I do NOT like the added problem, or your never-ending suggestions to upgrade to this version!

  3. "EASY" WAY TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM JUNK YOU NEVER SUBSCRIBED TOO IS STUPID AND INEFFECTIVE

    While it is a good idea to suggesting unsubscribing from junk emails, your suggestions are so terrible that I suspect you of accepting bribes from junk mailers. Today you suggested that I unsubscribe from The New York Times, which I pay for monthly and various other items which I virtually never delete because I read them. Just after I have finished deleting my junk mail, you pop up cheerfully suggesting that I unsubscribe from the mail that I deliberately did not delete? Also when I have sat down and tried to unsubscribe it never makes any difference as all those…

  7. skip inbox

    I would like to create a filter that has certain emails skip my inbox. Just like google did with the "zero inbox technique". It would be nice if yahoo adopted zero inbox. its a struggle trying to clean my yahoo mail.

  8. folders

    I need to be able to move sent items into folders using the Yahoo email app on my phone. I can do it when on the compuer, but it is annoying that I can't do it when I am on my phone. Inbox items can be moved to folders so why not sent items too?

  9. email addresses in 'boxes'

    Having the email addresses go into the little boxes means, to correct an error, I have to retype the whole thing.

    Get rid of the stupid boxes and let me type the address in like any other typing.

  10. show attachment icon in emails folders

    Difficult to find the attachments in emails that have been saved in folders or archived. Is there a solution to this?
    I am unable to locate attachments in emails that have been saved in folders or archived. There does not seem to be an icon to show an attachment either on (i) a list when you click into a folder; or (ii) when you open the email. In previous version, you can see whether an email has an attachment by seeing the icon at the right side of the email list. You can still do this in the inbox view…

  12. Import Email into Microsoft Excel

    I would like to see the option for Import Email (Data) into Microsoft Excel for research and analysis purposes.

    To further elaborate, if I set up a folder for Employment Search, I would use the employment data to:

    1. Analyze to my inquiries to employers
    2. Analyze and review employee responses
    3. Examine the frequency of the employment search activity
    4. Analyze the attachments made in each email

    This suggestion does not have to be dedicated to one (1) specific folder. The importing concept can be universal (any folder an user would create).

  14. Disposable addresses randomized AGAIN - please alphabetize and add search function in settings

    Disposable addresses are, again, listed in a randomized order, making it extremely time consuming to find a specific address. Please ensure that all future mail versions have alphabetized disposable addresses when composing a message AND in the settings window to add/edit/delete disposable addresses. A search bar would also be useful in the settings window.

    I don't like that fact that you have removed the visible trashcans in the left side bar.

  17. while forwarding messages, the forward lines need to be removed as its automatically changing the format of the message

    i would prefer forwarding messages without forward lines which usually comes beside the typed message. so kindly give options for clients to remove such lines in settings.
