  1. Please highlight the folders with unread emails

    Only a number next to the folder showing there are unread emails. However the folder itself is not highlighted. Would be good to highlight/bold the folders to make them standout.

  2. email search

    would be nice when you do search in the email that you will get all the emails from this sender even if some are deleted, and will be in the trash folder (sometimes you find you delete something by mistake and the search will help to find it)

  4. I want to see Spam without needing to REMEMBER to click MORE. That was not a good imporovement!

    I want to see Spam without needing to REMEMBER to click MORE. That was not a good imporovement! Do you guys actually think that you are that good at determining what is spam and what is not? You are not. How arrogant of your industry to make that assumption.

  6. create folder when in email

    when reading an email & wanting to file in a folder, if the folder has not been created you must go out & create the folder then go back to the email to move it to the newly created folder. You should be able to create a new folder from the email view or when in the email.

  7. read/unread weirdness

    It's nicer than before, but here are some issues:
    1. When you're on email and you mark it as unread, when you switch to other email it reset to "read" again. (so it marks it as read not when you open it but when you close it?)
    2. when you reply to email it then opens the next email in the grid, which sucks combined with the above issue, something I didn't actually look at is marked as "read" now.
    3. Sorting by "unread" is laggy, still better than before, but emails you open appear to stay as "unread" then…

  8. calendar

    It's very irritating to have new tabs created whenevef I go to my calendar or contacts. I only need one tab (one instance) of my mail. Fix this: decide how to implement the calendar and contacts function well or take them away (the latter would be a huge mistage!)

  9. Message management banner

    The pop up banner indicating that messages have been deleted, moved etc sits too low, obscuring the bar of instructions including delete etc

  10. rename a folder with subfolders

    renaming a folder with subfolders (or not) is crucial for organizing emails and boosting productivity, now that renaming a folder is no longer allowed once it has one or more subfolders.

  12. Address Book - Deleting Old E-mail Addresses but keep coming back

    I am getitng frustrated with old e-mail addresses coming back to my Contacts after I deleted them. Some people changed their e-mail address, I deleted them and they keep coming back. I have the correct settings too for that as well.

  13. Left side bar

    I would like to be able to edit the side bar on the left. The flashing icons on the left are annoying.

  14. sorting

    I prefer to view my emails with the'oldest at the Top'. Why can't I permanently change this instead of it reverting back to 'newest on top' all the time.

  15. copy paste from word, excel, etc

    Please allow the user to copy/paste from source to yahoo mail and keep the format at the source. When copying from Word that has tab delimited columns the columns are no longer aligned in Yahoo mail. When copying from Excel the user should have the option of keeping the grid boxes. When copying a table from either the size of the table should remain constant not turn into jumbo size.

  18. spam

    Why do items that are sent to your spam folder now still have embedded links active? In the old mail, any links in an item (which are usually bogus or even dangerous) were not active to click on, as a safety measure. If they really were not spam, you would move them to the inbox (or some other folder, I guess) and then you could use the links.

  19. 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

  20. Too easy to open emails accidentally while ticking to select them for deletion

    If you aren't 100% accurate ticking the box, it's far too easy to accidentally end up opening an email, rather than selecting it. The box needs a much bigger "catch zone" for mouse clicks
