  1. Make Views folder in mail optional!

    I have noted Yahoo has decided not to allow users to permanently remove Views. This is intrusive, especially as it keeps popping up with so-called news that I overpaid for something. This means Yahoo is monitoring all my online shopping! It is unacceptable. Yahoo, as a long time user, I implore you to rethink this. I am also talking to Verizon, your new owners.

  2. I want to be able to search by Sender (i.e. Mailbox, Trash folder, etc)

    Bring back the option to search by Sender -- older versions had this option. Grr! Very aggravating Yahoo Mail!

  4. unread mail

    It would be nice if the "unread mail" stayed visible for more than 30 seconds. I start reading an article and whoosh----it disappears and goes on to the next email.

  5. Get rid of the "No, Keep me signed in" message

    Get rid of the new " No, keep me signed in" message when signing out of Yahoo mail. I think we know how to sign back in if we need.

  6. Folder Icons

    Allow icons for folders. Being able to identify a folder at a glance without the need to read the name would allow for easier use.

  10. DRAFT FOLDERS

    WHEN i STOP TYPING AN EMAIL TO DO SOMETHING ELSE, WHEN I GO BACK INTO THE DRAFT FOLDER TO FINISH THE EMAIL, IT IS OFTEN NOT THERE AND I HAVE TO CLOSE DOWN MY EMAIL AND THEN REOPEN THE EMAIL SECTION AND THE EMAIL I HAD STARTED IS FINALLY THERE. I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YAHOO FIX THESE ISSUES. I CAN SEE THAT MANY OF YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH THIS DRAFT FOLDER AND I USE IT OFTEN SO PLEASE PAY ATTENTION AND MAKE THIS "USER FRIENDLY" FOR THE CUSTOMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Allow more control over deleting emails with one click.

    Allow more control over deleting emails with one click. Sometimes you can delete 100 emails with one click, other times it is 200, 300, etc. I would like to be able to choose the number of emails to be deleted at one time.

  12. Yahoo mail used to be easy to switch between accounts. Now it's a pain. I like the old Yahoo mail. Bring it back.

    Bring back the old Yahoo Mail. This new one is a pain to switch back and forth between accounts. Or maybe that's what you want? Those of us with multiple accounts to go elsewhere?

  14. A suggestion on the folder column resize issue......

    If Yahoo mail can't or won't allow resizing the folder, then perhaps it can "word wrap" the truncated names.

  16. Auto Highlighting

    Auto Highlighting. Please return auto highlighting. I like to close an email before moving or deleteing it. It's easier to just click "delete" after closing a just read email. Now when you close an email that highlight line shows up somewhere else in a random pattern. To keep that highlight on the email just read I have to "check" the box before reading. That adds an extra stroke I never remember to do.

  19. Since videos automatically play when my inbox is empty, I exit Yahoo mail. With old mail I gladly kept it active all the time.

    Please provide an easy way to disable automtic video play when the inbox is empty. Thanks.

  20. spam

    You need better spam filters. If I receive a legitimate email with bitcoin in the subject field, this is always followed by hundreds of spam emails related to bitcoin. Same for dating, any legit online dating emails are immediately followed by hundreds of dating spam.

    I also have Gmail, and that never happens in their system.
