  1. Accountability

    Provide users with real contact information for actual Yahoo team members. Community support or answer on a help site does not provide users with someone who can be held accountable at Yahoo. Yahoo would like members to download applications and use various Yahoo products but is not wiling to provide users with real support for issues, questions or problems with those products.

  2. Indication in Folder to be reviewed.

    When we move a mail from Inbox, Sent to the folder , it should display with the indication of Inbox and Sent with the Sender and Receiver address, whereas it displays the sender address only irrespective of Inbox or Sent moved. This is highly confusing.

  4. When you move a file to a folder you get an error message

    When you move a file from the In Box to a folder, you get the message "Unable to move message to the selected folder" rather than "message moved to .... folder." The link must be broken because it used to respond correctly.

  5. Recent activity ip address & location and also code generator app

    hi..under "recent activity" section, i would appreciate if you could also provide the ip address from which the account was accessed and also the location from which the account was accessed, also would appriciate if you have a two step verification app like gmail and outlook has (code generator app), sms password doesn't always reach on time.

  8. It will be really helpful if Yahoo comes out with a folder that can provide a list of distinct sender and count of emails from those sende

    It will be really helpful if Yahoo comes out with a list specific each email users that can support with list of distinct sender and count of emails from those sender and an option to move to Spam or reinstate back to the original folders if accidently selected. This would enable for an user to make sure the email boxes are clean all time.
    Should you see that such list will impact performance you could given an option for user to trigger such request, however I would not have the patter on how many user will be trigger such request…

    come into yahoo on one page then ask to see contact list and it takes me to another page and when I change a contact on this second page it is not reflected in the email names for an email I am just composing on the original page - why?

  11. folder

    I would like to create folders as a subset of the INBOX (as I can do in Outlook). They should, at the very least, be immediately below the INBOX (rather than near the bottom of the page) because when using filters, mail goes directly into them.

  13. I use goodsearch as my default search engine - shouldn't I be able to get the expanded view of my email?

    goodsearch is a yahoo based search engine that raises money for non profits so I should be able to use the expanded view so I can see more of my email messages

  15. Put close all tabs link at the top of the tabs list

    Please put the Close All Tabs link at the TOP of the tabs list. When I want to close all tabs, that means I have many tabs open, so it's ridiculous to make me scroll to the bottom. Yes, I can "Up Arrow" my way to the bottom, but that's counterintuitive and an extra step.

  18. Thank you for giving back the folder sorting option. Now, please make the sort effective ONLY on a single forlder!

    Way back, Yahoo had a very convenient option to sort messages in a folder with the option saved for future. Then, sorting disappeared. Now, it is back (thank you!) yet, when I sort one folder, the sorting is applied to all the others - makes little sense to me. I want sorting to be effective for a single folder and stay such until I change it. Thanks.

  19. Thought this might be an improvement...NOT!! I have XP SP3 (btw) and after sending an email, this "New/Improved Version" highlig jumps into

    Thought this "New/Improved Version" might be an improvement...NOT!! I have XP SP3 (btw) and after sending an email, this highlights an email and won't stop that until I go into the email (where the COMPLETE email is highlighted???) and then select an open area to un-highlight the contents. How do I switch back?!?!? I do NOT like the added problem, or your never-ending suggestions to upgrade to this version!

  20. "EASY" WAY TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM JUNK YOU NEVER SUBSCRIBED TOO IS STUPID AND INEFFECTIVE

    While it is a good idea to suggesting unsubscribing from junk emails, your suggestions are so terrible that I suspect you of accepting bribes from junk mailers. Today you suggested that I unsubscribe from The New York Times, which I pay for monthly and various other items which I virtually never delete because I read them. Just after I have finished deleting my junk mail, you pop up cheerfully suggesting that I unsubscribe from the mail that I deliberately did not delete? Also when I have sat down and tried to unsubscribe it never makes any difference as all those…
