  2. attachments

    I used to be able to upload (using the paperclip button) pdf attachments up to less than 10 MGB but now it doesn't work. I can only upload small sized documents. Now I have to open my gmail account and can easily upload it there and then send it to yahoo account to forward. Makes keeping my yahoo account active seem ridiculous. Unless yahoo can fix this, I'll move all my activity to gmail. It is simply better these days....

  3. I need to put in MY location, not the location of my server. I am in the US and they are in Europe and this is causing all kinds of problem

    Please let me put in my location and don't allow sites to use my IP server which is in Europe. I'm in the US.

  4. subject search doesn't fully work, misses most messages

    I've noticed this getting worse. When I enter a search term like "subject:***" that the messages retrieved never fully match what I see in the inbox. Really odd for a company that started out as a search engine. I can't imagine how hard it is to do a string match on a subject line, but apparently Yahoo Mail has a lot of trouble with it.

  6. Allow to preview or ability to open

    Please allow PDF attachment to either preview or open while you are composing an email. Long file names appear shrieked with ... I wanted to double check whether I have attached correct file or not, but to no avail

  9. paste

    Pasting text does not work properly - at least, not in Internet Explorer. The pasted content goes to the beginning of the email message, not to the spot where I want to insert it. I then have to cut all the text that is supposed to go above the pasted content and paste that, too. Very kludgy.

  10. Some of us are visually impaired. Please use lighter color print on dark backgrounds, and your boxes like this one too. Hard to find.

  11. Smart View was important to me & is no longer availabe

    I do not like the new version. When switched to the new i was told that i could go back if i did not like the new. There is no apparent way to do this. This is dishonest or just incompetence. What i want is the Smart View of my previous version which is not listed under views in the new version. I trade stocks. With the old version all issues of all advisory e-letters and alerts from a given publisher were in one place. There i could easily review past emails for investing and trading. This is not possible…

  12. Get rid of related contacts automatically appearing when forwarding mail

    Turn off related contacts appearing automatically when only forwarding an email to an individual. This is a nuisance. Probably was suggested by someone to lazy to go to contacts. Get rid of it. It's a PAIN

    there should be an automatic filter like gmail is providing viz. primary, social, and promotional etc. so one can easily sort the mails received.

  15. Forwarding history

    I can see by the arrow that an email has been forwarded or replied to. But there is no indication to "whom" it was forwarded. I need this as a sort of "receipt" that this information was indeed sent to them.

  16. Folders (large) display

    Smaller/Medium/Large display setting option (just like under settings for messages). It's too big and I have to keep scrolling down.

  17. I want control over when my trash gets deleted!!

    There should be a setting that allows me to choose how often my trash gets cleared out. I don't want to archive everything but I often delete something I ended up needing. There is no predictability or order to when items get deleted from the trash that I can see.

  20. I would love to have different color or shape of flags for my mail

    I would really love to have additional colors or shapes of flags for my emails. If Yahoo had that, I wouldn't have to use any other email...
