  1. By allowing to sort by recipient in the sent box

    Cannot sort mail by recipient in the sent box. They are usually all sent by the same person.

  2. Schedule email send times

    Would be really nice if we could schedule a time for emails to be sent. For instance, if I am drafting a message today that I don't want to send until Monday morning, it would be great if there was a way to schedule that instead of having to remind myself to send it Monday morning or having to have someone else send it because I am not going to be connected at the time that I need it to be sent.

  3. deleting emails a hastle!!!

    When I try to select and email in the checkbox, it takes 10 to 15 clicks for the check mark to stay in the box. Also, after I have selected an email to delete, when it is deleted, Yahoo takes one and sometimes two of the emails below the selected email by mistake. Then, I have to go to the trash file to retrieve the emails deleted by mistake (by Yahoo mail) to sent them back to my inbox. It also takes extra emails back to my inbox that are unchecked. Please correct this error or bug!!!!!!! Thanks!!!!!

  4. Sorting bars above email messages

    Can we have sorting bars above the email messages? This way we can just click on the bar above the relevant column to sort (e.g. from, subject, date, etc) instead of clicking on a drop down menu to search for the sorting option.

    Also, if an email is selected and then the sorting option is clicked, that email message should remain selected. This helps with searching or browsing.
    For instance, if I select an email from "John" and I click on the sort by name bar, all emails from all Johns should be together; if I select an email whose…

  7. folder

    When I open an email in a folder, then close it, I'm tossed back to the inbox, instead of the folder I opened the message from. This makes looking through messages to find anything ... irksome.

  8. * Back button for ads *

    Ads switch quickly. We need a back button to scroll through ads that have passed so Yahoo can get more clickthroughs. Look at the way you can see previous songs in your history on Pandora. It needs to work like that. Thanks for your consideration.

  12. Allow splitting one message out from a Conversation

    This is valuable because huge numbers of people send replies that are off the original topic without changing the Subject field.

  14. Stop putting the trashcan next to the message in the Yahoo list.

    Between the sender's name and the message, a star and a trashcan and a magnifying glass pop up when we are going to answer the note. STOP the trashcan! I am forever ready to click on the message when the trash can pops up and changes the spacing, so my click sends my message to the TRASH. We don't need that tiny trash can when the ordinary "delete" works fine.

  19. Move, Sort and Resize Columns

    I want to be able to move, resize, and sort columns by clicking on them, just like pretty much every other mail program around. I want to move the "trash can" column to the left so I can get to it easily, without being asked "Do you really want to delete this?" like you are when you use the icon at the top. I want to click on the sender column and sort by that, so I can quickly find all messages by a certain sender. Please either bring this functionality, or revert to the old version. Thanks.

  20. spam

    Why do items that are sent to your spam folder now still have embedded links active? In the old mail, any links in an item (which are usually bogus or even dangerous) were not active to click on, as a safety measure. If they really were not spam, you would move them to the inbox (or some other folder, I guess) and then you could use the links.
