  1. Please re-introduce the Hide button for the To, Cc and Bcc rows. There is practically zero space for the body text when working with windows

    Hello!
    Please re-introduce the Hide button for the To, Cc and Bcc rows. There is practically zero space for the body text when working with more windows on the same screen, which I normally have to do.

    Of course, there is always the option to enlarge the yahoo.mail window , but it is inefficient.

    Thank you very much!

  2. No option to use Dropbox attachments with new version. Huge oversite. Please fix

    Please please please bring back the link to attach large files via Dropbox. I use it every day for my business and I am seriously worried that this feature no longer exists.

  3. Color codes for Calendar! Makes it easier to identify certain events

    I run a small business and I have various projects. I need the ability to COLOR CODE my calendar events vs. appointments. Makes it so much easier to scan the week or month and identify select projects. I love Yahoo mail compared to Gmail. But yahoo calendar is lacking whereas i think gmail calendar is better. PLEASE UPDATE THIS FEATURE. Thank you!!

  6. Pasted text has issues

    If i paste text from a word file, i cannot change the size of that paragraph. Everything i wrote manually i can change, but that specific paragraph does not, it's frustrating me so much, I am really considering changing to a new provider.

  7. Cc/Bcc selection

    When selecting Bcc how about placing the cursor in the Bcc on the Bcc line rather than the Cc line? I sometimes forget to move it down and would like to insure autonomy for my recipients,

  8. Folder location in search results

    "If you look to the right of the search result, there should be either the name of the folder it’s in or the name of the mailbox it’s in. If the latter, you can hover over the name of the mailbox it’s in and the folder location will appear."
    The above quote is was made by one of your product specialists in the feedback forum. The last sentence about hovering over the mailbox name does not work anymore (it used to work). Now it just shows "Yahoo/undefined". Please fix.

  9. New mail.doc attachments that used to open with the old mail now do not open at all.

    With the new mail, .doc attachments that used to open with the old mail now do not open at all. That's really New, but entirely useless. Can I have the old mail back, please. It wasn't broken.

  10. Email from people in address book shows up in Trash - but now no #of emails is listed, I have to actually open the trash folder

    I want a notification next to the Trash and Spam folders telling me how many unread emails are in them -- without having to open each folder each time. Too many of my emails go directly to Trash -- even those from people in my contact list, those I have just answered, etc. Not a fan of the new Yahoo mail.

  11. junk mail

    Junk Mail. The average citizen is assaulted by 5000 to 10,000 ads per day. Can you imagine the effect on the human brain? Some are designed only to program your brain to recognize sounds or logos. What are you doing, if anything, about this profit center?

  12. Historical email address

    When entering a contact name, the historical email address takes precedence over a correctly edited and saved contact email address. Also, there seems to be no way to delete that historical email address that is no longer wanted and should not be used.

  13. Clean Inbox: delete all UNREAD emails

    I see there is an option to clean inbox by deleting ALL emails. This is a step in the right direction, but I don't use it because I want to save important emails. I suggest an option to delete all UNREAD emails.

  14. I agree with everyone else. This version sucks! And it is forced on us. I will immediately begin transferring anything of importance to Gmai

    I cannot track across to the trash can. Put it back where it was before. I am 61 years old and have seen many new and improved in my day. This doesn't rate as either one.

  15. Why is there an UNREAD folder - given that unread emails appear bolded in the regular Inbox?

    Given that unread emails appear bolded in the Inbox, why is there a separate folder marked Unread???

  18. left justify the Archive, Move, ... banner

    Left justify the 'Archive, Move...' buttons. You centered them and that requires more mouse movement, bad for carpal tunnel!
