  1. Search for messages from this sender

    When I click on the magnifying glass icon to "Search for messages from this sender" it does not include the one I clicked on. In the old version, it used to bring them all up. It was nice to be able to then read all the messages from that sender, including the one I clicked on.

  3. When you reply, put in the history the full header of the previous message

    When you reply, put in the history the full header of the previous message. Eg Currently, when someone emails me and others and cc's others, then when I reply, it currently puts in the history only the Sender. I would like to have in the history the full header so I know who else was Sent and who was cc'd. As a workaround, instead of Replying to a message, I Forward a message, so that the history has the full header. Then I manually delete the "FW:" and type "Re:"

  4. disposable email addresses

    When replying to an email addressed to a disposable email address, the disposable address used to auto populate. Now the base address - that I do not want to use for anything - shows up. Wrong!

  9. No way to edit contact details

    There are two screenshots below to prove this.

    The first attached screenshot, which is green, is what I see whenever I navigate to Yahoo Mail in "Google Chrome" for Windows 10. As you will note, that window has no Contacts icon and no way to edit contacts. If I select "Compose" & "To", it generates a list of contacts but does not allow editing of those entries.

    If I can somehow through trial-and-error, reach the point of seeing the attached, blue-coloured screenshot, after 5 minutes of tinkering, and I save the "mail view" window as a bookmark, the generated link…

  12. day headers show only resource ID in grid view

    Bug report:
    Using Chrome and FireFox browsers, all is good.
    Using Msft Edge, in the grid view of the message threads, the group headers for the day's names and "today", "yesterday", "last week" all show up as 4-digit resource ID numbers instead of the text.

  13. Privacy violation and more...

    3 things I'd ask Yahoo to change:


    1. I did not give to Yahoo my phone number, and I did not give any permission to show it publicly. Never. I even purposely keep my old fashion cell phone, and don't use in it the internet browser. So where and why did you get my phone number? And how can I remove it from my email account (can't find such option)? Yahoo is severely violating my privacy + is giving an opportunity to do that to all spams & etc. Please fix this situation.


    2. Please keep old Emojis, as they were funny…

  14. Make contact updates immediate

    When I add contacts to a group they should be available immediately when used in a new or forwarded email. Changes to contacts should also be immediate. I have added new contacts to a list, but they do not appear when I use that list.

  15. dropbox

    Dropbox access needs to be added back to emails so that large files can be sent. If this isn't added, then i'll have to go to a new email provider and I've had yahoo for 20 years.

  16. How do I move the VIEWS below FOLDERS?

    As above. VIEWS are just in the way. How do I move them out of the way?

  18. Multiple filter values in any of the filter classes

    Multiple filter values in any of the filter classes.

    Ex:
    Filter Name: Family
    From: Contains: test.smith@test.com; test2.smith@test.com; test3.smith@test.com

    Even though the family is not that interesting, they at least have a small domain, and the feature is very useful for little Test3.
    Also the same concept could go for the other filters.
