  2. views

    It would appear you have completely ignored the many people who want to Hide Views on a more permanent basis. Why cannot you allow for this? On my laptop, I have only so much real estate, and your expanded list of Views cuts down on my ability to look at my own, personal folders. Please, implement this, or let me have my old interface back permanently, where there was no such problem with Views.

  3. Don't try to fix what ain't broken

    Stop messing with the e-mail system. It is was fine and worked great. Now it's nothing but delays, changes for no apparent reason. If something isn't broken, don't try to fix. Keep it simple and easy to use.

  8. Default or selected email message is not being highlighted

    This is an error on a functionality which I think needs fixed. Below is the scenario...


    1. I am in the Inbox

    2. Clicked on the recent email message (maybe any email in the Inbox but needs testing) and opened and read

    3. Close the email message by clicking the "X" or hit "Esc" button on the keypad

    4. I expect the current email message row to get highlighted, i.e. default row should be highlighted \ selected

    5. Instead the selection is on a different message \ row which is a concern

    This is a concern as, if I (or a user) closes the email…

  10. Reply / Reply All options when composing email

    Previously, there was a "reply to all" or "reply to sender" option in the upper right corner next to the "show/hide CC/BCC" option. This was very useful if you selected "reply" arrow but realized it was more appropriate to send to the entire group, or converseley, if you realied that it should be targeted only to the sender. You could toggle back to either "Reply to Sender" or "Reply to All", meaning you could reply to all other recipients when replying to an email you had initially selected on ly "Reply" for. Now I have to copy the text, delete…

  14. can't download photo attachment

    There is no ability to download a photo attachment anymore. What is displayed within an e-mail is a "thumbnail" view rather than the actual attachment, provided the actual attachment is too large to display full size or was rotated right side up. I want and need to be able to download the actual attachment, not your automatically modified copy.

  15. reply all

    When I click anywhere in the reply box it goes Reply All by default.

    I'ts great that the Reply, Reply All, or Forward buttons are right there and easy enough to see, but I have been caught out before when I just quickly click in the box and accidentally Replied All to about 40 people when I only intended to Reply to the person in the previous message.

    I appreciate being able to click anywhere within the box (it's very efficient), but I think the default should be to just Reply, not Reply All.

  16. Allow to Copy email address from existing email

    Please allow us to copy email address from an old email to send a new one. The current version of yahoo mail don't allow us to do so though the basic version allows.

    This is really an important feature for email user. This time I always have to hit forward button>copy address>delete the mail from draft folder.... This is very tiring. Please fix this ASAP.

  17. stars


    1. It would be really helpful if the stars could be made different colours : Ie: if i don't want to file the email yet, and have half a dozen that I am waiting on dealing with, then to be able to 'star' them with a different colour for the 'status' of my conversations would be really handy.

  18. The changes to yahoo mail over the past 6 weeks have rendered its performance completely abysmal.

    The changes to yahoo mail over the past 6 weeks have rendered its performance completely abysmal. The recent changes to contacts are extremely regressive. I have used yahoo mail for over 20 years and have been a paying email customer for no ads for about 7 or 8 years. If a path back to the previously functional email and contacts is not provided, I will stop being a paying customer and leave yahoo mail permanently. I am so completely disgusted with all these unnecessary and regressive changes. Probably Yahoo does not give a **** if they lose paying customers. It…
