  1. Contact Window on Right Side of Screen

    there is an annoying window on the right side of the screen that keeps popping up with the contact info for the e-mail that is open. I click on the arrow to minimize it, but every time I go back to my e-mail it's there again, hogging a quarter of the screen. If I set it as closed, I expect it to stay that way. Hope you didn't spend a lot on this"upgrade"; real waste of time and money.

  3. Allow subject changes when forwarding conversations!

    You have taken away my ability to change the subject when forwarding or replying to an email. I often have to forward one email to several individuals that would require a different subject for each, and can no longer do that. I also often reply to one email several times with different photos, different information, and can no longer edit the subject to reflect what updates I am including. It is extremely frustrating when you "improve" something by taking away basic, necessary functionality.

  8. no way to get a list of keyboard shortcuts

    Changing the keyboard shortcuts was stupid. Removing the link to display them should get someone fired.

  9. Have beta testing


    1. Options like search, delete, and star was very near to each other and thus it was easy to select an option. now one has to move cursor far right to delete.

    2. Search feature needs more interactions now as against earlier search interactions. eg. User clicks search icon of one mail from mail list in inbox . this will list all mails across all folders as search results, user clicks search box and selects inbox in the dropdown box to filter mails from inbox only, mail list is not updated/refreshed as was happening earlier. one has to click search icon on…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  19. 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!

  20. 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.
