  2. Custom rules

    Allow rules/filters to be more customisable. Allow users to specify when mails move from the inbox to designated folder.
    Examples:
    Scenario 1 - Allow the latest mail matching a filter rule to remain in the inbox for a specified number of days before it moves to the designated folder.
    Scenario 2 - Move an email to the designated folder automatically after it is read.
    Scenario 3 - Automatically delete mail from specific senders if unread for more than specified days.

    This will really help us better manage our inbox considering the amount of emails we get these days.

  3. When I try to forward in Safari, the "send" button disappears. Sux.

    How about letting the forward function actually forward. Duh. No send button when I try to forward in Safari.

  4. Fisrt page of a document is not rendered in the right panel

    When trying to preview a document, the first page is not rendered. If there is only one page, it's not readable, if there are multiple pages (like in pdf), only the first page is not rendered, the others are ok.

  9. spam

    There should be a way to delete spam that appears from the same sender automatically and then you can look at anything unusual.

  10. New mail format

    I like it - I like that the contacts are over on the right instead of the left. New stuff always takes getting used to.

    HOWEVER, I thought I was selecting to use this new format - but every time I used my contacts list - the OLD format is back.

  11. When I click the X to close an email, it just opens the last one I had open. Please CLOSE and go back to LIST.

    Go back to list of emails when I close open message instead of going back to the previously opened message. I don't want to just toggle between emails. I would never want that.

  14. scroll

    When scrolling down in Inbox to get to messages that are out of the screen, the preview link at the bottom left hides the very message that I'm trying to read. This is very annoying especially when scrolling with arrow keys, because once I get to the message I want, I can't see the sender because it's hidden by the preview link. The only way to see the sender is to scroll one more message down and then back up, which defeats the purpose of scrolling with arrow keys. Please, FIX THIS!!!! And please, don't tell me to switch to…

  15. 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…

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. Option to turn off sent message being copied to SENT folder

    Option to turn off sent message being copied to SENT folder disappeared with new yahoo mail. The new mail automatically copies all sent messages to SENT folder. We need option to turn that off. It would be best if we have an option to turn that off from a particular source. Example - I have set my home security system to send e-mail from me to me when motion is detected. Now all those messages go to separate folder but same time all of them are sent to SENT folder also. This way it fills the folder with unwanted copies…

  19. Mistake in French Holiday Calendar

    Hello,

    The French Holiday Calendar wrongly displays the "Ascension" holiday on Fridays when it actually takes place on Thursdays (e.g. Fri 31 May 2019 instead of Thu 30 May 2019, Fri 22 May 2020 instead of Thu 21 May 2020, and so on).
