  2. Very confusing - misleading sent/received email

    When forwarding an email to one person, if you go back to the main inbox/sent interface it lists the previous emails involved. Therefore it appears as if you forwarded the email to all other other email addresses, not just the ONE you intended to. and the only way you can see who you forwarded it to is if you click the email and scroll down to look at the "FROM/TO" portion.
    Please fix this, it is very misleading. I just go off the phone with customer support about this, and she agreed that it does look misleading and has caused…

  3. Filters error

    I went to check my filters and found that when I clicked on some it came up with an error that it was trying to go back to the Inbox and it wouldn't open my filter. I couldn't click on the filter to delete it. It looked like some of my filters got corrupted?? I couldn't delete so I had to switch back to classic mail, then successfully deleted the filters, then switch back to the new mode and re-created the filters again.
    Are there problems with filters?

  4. Allow us to distinguish off-topic emails from a Conversation

    "Group by Conversation" is excellent for reading, but doesn't allow for separating off-topic replies. Please provide a "Remove from Conversation" option in each email's "More" menu.

    A less-desirable workaround: move the "Group by Conversation" switch to the quick Settings drop-down, where the "Message Tabs" toggle is now (does anyone need to toggle that on and off all the time?).

  5. Mobile Multi-contact Deleting

    Need the ability to delete more than one contact at a time in the app AND PC version of Yahoo Mail. The mobile one-at-a-time restriction is ridiculous.

  6. Dark background for empty folders..?

    Empty spam folder is white, although I have "dark mode" enabled. This "dark mode" is THE reason for me to use this updated Yahoo mail, it is so much easier for eyes. But when I empty spam folder, background goes all white, which was quite a shock first time! Could you please adjust this to the selected colouring scheme?
    Also, the spam folder does not show "immediately" whether there is spam, like the older version did with the number of new messages in that folder.
    But, basically I like the new Yahoo mail! Usually I don't like major updates in…

  8. Provide Storage with Yahoo Mail Pro

    With all the free email out there today I think Yahoo should provide a little more with the paid subscription. I was thinking like 1Tb of Cloud Storage with your Pro Account. This would be more of an incentive and would offer a nice benefit to your subscribers. I was looking for a backup tool for my pictures and files and I was thinking why pay for multiple services. So I hope you would consider this since $35 is getting to be a lot to pay just for email without ads.

    Thanks,

  13. It adds a separate blank line when composing a message.

    When pressing enter to start a sentence on a new line it adds a separate blank line.This appears to be a formatting problem.

  14. automatically delete emails once they are 30 days unless the owner saves them in an envelope

    To stop from having such klutter in our email that makes it so overwhelming when we open it. why not give us the choice to add an automatic delete check mark on old messages that we don't want or sales adds. Like 2 weeks or 30 days. That way we use up less storage and it's not so overwhelming.

  16. New format does not return to the top of the inbox to display the latest emails after viewing earlier ones (same day). An "improvement"?

    Well, let's see: when returning to "inbox", shouldn't emails display beginning with the latest? Not several emails down from the top? You know, just a thought. Pls stop w/the "improved looks", bells/whistles and stick with the basics.

  17. I want to see the background picture on my screen without the big white square covering it

    I like the nautical theme but it is always covered by a big white square even if I have no mail - can it just show the theme until I click on inbox?

  18. imap

    Please add IMAP IDLE command.
    This makes mail receiving much faster and reduce load on server as long as clients don't need to poll it.

    Thanks.
