  2. Adding new contacts to a group

    There needs to be a simple way for me to paste a bunch of email addresses into a new group. The contact page is way too complicated. Keep it simple!

  3. I prefer a light background with BLACK ink.

    My 62 year old eyes don't want to deal with white font. Please have at least 1 choice with a black font.

  4. The "search" feature returns "nothing to see here" although on the right side it shows clearly that you have exchanged emails

    Fix the "search" function for finding emails from a certain contact. It returns "nothing to see here" although it shows on the right side of the screen that we clearly have exchanged multiple emails. And I'm not referring to deleted emails. It won't even find emails that are currently sitting in my inbox!

  5. contacts

    I send out mass emails. I am always taken back to the old Yahoo. Why is this? Please set it all up so that we can go to our contacts on the new Yahoo.

  6. spam button still not fixed

    OK, the Delete and Spam button issue is still not fixed and is worse than ever. When will this issue be resolved? Get off the stick and fix or I am out of here.

  7. Offer a setting to disable the search link in mailbox view

    I hate the dynamically appearing search shortcut between the subject and the preview in mailbox view. It's not there when I move the pointer to click on a message to read it, then it appears just as I click and I don't get to the message.

    Make the link permanent, get rid of it, or offer a setting so I don't have to see it, please. It's a terrible user experience to click on a message in the mailbox and not have the message open.

  8. Inline images don't work in new mail

    Classic mail allowed me to insert inline images into emails, putting them exactly where I wanted between blocks of text.

    Why does this function not work in new mail? Please bring back classic.

  11. I AM SICK AND TIRED OF YOUR NEW YAHOO, IT DELETES MESSAGES BEFORE I HAVE A CHANCE TO READ THEM

    IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME AND I AM SICK AND TIRED OF IT. REALLY GETS MY BLOOD PRESSURE UP WHEN I'AM ON YAHOO.

  12. printing

    It's handy having a print icon on the e-mail but it puts a box around the text and won't print everything on the right hand side unless I reduce the scale to 75%. This always used to work before the update.

  14. Dialogue boxes for *everything*

    Please remove the pop up dialogue box that shows up for every tiny thing that is clickable. I can't read my emails because it keeps flickering on every time my mouse passes over something. Ie: I pass over a check box and I get a little yellow dialogue tag that says "Checkbox, unchecked".

    Browser is opera. None of the other websites I'm on do this, and my old yahoo email didn't do this.

  16. replyto

    Please allow replyto field to be set when sending emails fromThunderbird on PC and also web client. I would like to be able to set replyto per email and not have to have reply to address set in yahoo mail settings. I used to be able to do this when using yahoo email, but now seems to be blocked.

  19. Concrete suggestions?


    1. Reduce the whitespace between items in the left hand column. You're wasting MY screenspace, and it does not make it more readable.

    2.Take Starred and Unread out of that column. There are other ways to get to them, and you're wasting MY screenspace.


    1. Without them, there's no need for the "More" and "Less" items as everything fits in the same number of lines as it does now.


    2. Make "Views" an on/off toggle on a menu. Those of us who don't use it NEVER WILL and it eats up MY screenspace.


    3. INDENT subfolders in the list, You used to.


    4. Quit trying…
