  3. Turn off automatic downloading of embedded images

    By default, turn off automatic downloading of images in emails. Everyone knows this is the largest tracking mechanism in emails and puts the user at risk of being spammed. This keeps getting re-enabled and it is a huge security flaw.

  4. It used to be very easy to copy email addresses by right-clicking on the address. I would see "Copy email address." Now, it's difficult.

    Please bring back the option to easily copy email addresses. I'm not even sure why that was so controversial that you took it away. It's how I create filters to assure that the right emails go into the right folders. I love the filters and folders, but you've made it harder to use them now.

  5. When I do a seach for an email, I cannot see what folder it is in anymore.

    I cannot see which folder an email is when I do a search for it. When I complete an order, I move all the emails pertaining to that order in a shipped folder. I can no longer see all of them in a search.

  6. When in a mailing list and one contact has two contact addresses, I have to copy and paste 2nd email to add to email.

    You should be able to click on both addresses to add to the "To" line when composing an email.

  7. Space Usage on Compose, Reply, ReplyAll

    The new email format insists on keeping the addressee, sender, and subject on the screen, without the ability to scroll it off the visible page. when I am trying to write an email (often with large distribution lists or on Reply/Reply All), this sometimes leaves the data entry space for me at a mere 1 or 2 lines. I can enter as many lines of message as I want, but I can only SEE the one or two lines at a time. With the large Yahoo Mail banner & broad spacing on sender/recipients/subject, this wastes a lot of space for…

    Let me finish my message before typing in the recipient.

  9. I want to see the sender's name ,not just the first line of the e-mail, before I open it. Is there an option in settings that I am missing?

    I cannot find any option is settings that allows me to choose a view that displays the sender's name in my inbox. I wish to know who the sender is before I open an e-mail.

    You're new look is not appealing to many people. The design is so not you!

  10. It would be really nice if you could have a way to put emails that you want to keep at the top that are important

    It would be really nice if a person could put an important email(s) at the top of all emails. This way I don't forget about them.

  14. Notepad should open in new message tab

    It's counter intuitive to for a button (calendar) to open new Chrome tab. Instead, it should open new message tab ("turn on tabs for multitasking" in settings have to be ON).

  19. Please allow us to use our own wallpaper for Yahoo Mail. You don't give us enough nice choices.

    Most other email providers allow background changes of the user's choice, either from a provided list or the user's own graphics. Personally, I'm not fond of any of the choices you provide.
