  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. Give us more interesting 'theme' options that aren't so dark, when they're on the full or what are currently referred to as dark setting.

    The the themes are sparse and unimaginative. On the 'dark' setting they're too dark and on the medium and light settings the page is too all white. Otherwise, I have no real objection to the change in format.

  14. Sort by Unread

    When i sort by unread, I want to go to the next unread message when I click the down arrow or delete a message. Right now it goes to the next oldest email, not the next unread one.

    Also I like being able to keep tabs of emails open if they are something I need to return back to soon.

    I also don't like the "Deals" header and things that show up above the body of the email now. Distracting and complicates getting to the actual message.

    All in all, I do not like the new mail format!!

  16. reply all

    I rec'd your response to a previous problem I was having but you closed the comments on that response and you suggested a solution that is not possible.

    If I respond to an email with "reply" and start typing and then realize I need to "reply all" there is no option to click this anywhere on the screen. The response I rec'd said to just hit the three "reply all" arrows but there is no such thing once I start the email by just hitting "reply".

    Here was your response to my previous issue that still exists:

  17. Wish the Filters get updated after renaming of Folders


    1. Create a Folder

    2. Create a Filter on it.

    3. Rename the folder created in step 1.

    4. Created filter will stop working.


    Wish you fix this!

  18. slows down - speed it up

    When I first log on, Yahoo Mail is responsive - slower than it was, but if I leave, even for a few minutes, Yahoo Mail slows almost to a stop.

  20. Add outside POP3 mailbox

    In the past 18 months, Yahoo mail has really improved. The only thing keeping me from fully switching from Gmail is the inability to add outside POP3 mailboxes.

    Is this going to be added?
