  1. New idea

    I understand that we can add multiple email accounts (even non-Yahoo ones!) to be managed from one place, which is great. But what if we also added our cell phone numbers to write and read SMS messages quickly? A lot of times people text me, but I want to save it and access the whole coversation with them in a more permanent, email-kinda way.

  4. It seems silly to me to go back to an original message to reply. Why would I reply to myself? This has been the most maddening thing.

    Make it easier to reply to someone rather than having to go back to an original message between two recipients. It makes no sense that I would reply to myself. Please fix this. It truly is ridiculous!

  7. Unread

    I like the Unread option, but when I open an email in the unread folder it suddenly becomes "read" and disappears before I can actually read it. It should let you read it, but when you go back to the Unread folder that's when ti should disappear

  9. Unlimited spam storage

    Enable unlimited spam storage. My email is at 200 max and that's just ridiculous. I can't believe Yahoo has a maximum limit!!

  12. Allow mass selection by date

    Since there are large date headers, allow selecting and options: such as, delete all mail under "today" instead of individual clicking

  14. Highlighting feature on E-mail

    You know when you get something like a piece of paper with some info like a hard-copy letter, and you use a highlighter just to highlight the few important bits that concern you the most for future references?

    How about you make a feature that can do the same for our inboxes/saved e-mails, so that we can skip easily to the highlighted/important bits when going through them again. Additionally, when this idea goes though, indicate on the "folder search page" when an E-mail has highlighted bits with this feature.

  15. DISPLAY FULL FOLDER PATH

    When moving messages to folders and I type a sub-folder name, one or more folders with that name show up but when hovering my mouse over one of the names only THAT NAME shows up not the full folder path. I may have many sub folders named "comments" so I want to make sure I pick the right destination. This feature was OK in the current mail format but changed for the NEW format. Please change it back.

  17. Disposable addresses randomized AGAIN - please alphabetize and add search function in settings

    Disposable addresses are, again, listed in a randomized order, making it extremely time consuming to find a specific address. Please ensure that all future mail versions have alphabetized disposable addresses when composing a message AND in the settings window to add/edit/delete disposable addresses. A search bar would also be useful in the settings window.

  18. Allow the Export of folders to other formats

    Over time inboxes get cluttered with good stuff and junk. It can be daunting to sort and puzzling to horde. Not only that sometimes there arises a need for Email addresses to be changed. Rather than using tons of paper and ink to preserve old emails (to some that's an enviromental impact and carbon footprint issue), how about you allow the true export of emails to other formats? It would give your email customers more peace of mind, ease of use, and free up space in the cloud.

    This could help Yahoo's image. You could be seen as being more…

  19. Why would you put 'archive' as the first choice in mail? Why not 'delete'? I don't want to 'archive' much of anything, but I do delete a lot

    Why would you put 'archive' as the first choice in mail? Why not 'delete'? I don't want to 'archive' much of anything, but I do delete a lot!

    I thought I clicked 'give feedback' - not vote on some post! Gaaahhhhh!
