  3. printing

    It's handy having a print icon on the e-mail but it puts a box around the text and won't print everything on the right hand side unless I reduce the scale to 75%. This always used to work before the update.

  5. Dialogue boxes for *everything*

    Please remove the pop up dialogue box that shows up for every tiny thing that is clickable. I can't read my emails because it keeps flickering on every time my mouse passes over something. Ie: I pass over a check box and I get a little yellow dialogue tag that says "Checkbox, unchecked".

    Browser is opera. None of the other websites I'm on do this, and my old yahoo email didn't do this.

  7. replyto

    Please allow replyto field to be set when sending emails fromThunderbird on PC and also web client. I would like to be able to set replyto per email and not have to have reply to address set in yahoo mail settings. I used to be able to do this when using yahoo email, but now seems to be blocked.

  10. Concrete suggestions?


    1. Reduce the whitespace between items in the left hand column. You're wasting MY screenspace, and it does not make it more readable.

    2.Take Starred and Unread out of that column. There are other ways to get to them, and you're wasting MY screenspace.


    1. Without them, there's no need for the "More" and "Less" items as everything fits in the same number of lines as it does now.


    2. Make "Views" an on/off toggle on a menu. Those of us who don't use it NEVER WILL and it eats up MY screenspace.


    3. INDENT subfolders in the list, You used to.


    4. Quit trying…

  12. Update mail stationary! Xmas/N.Year in April? Flower selections gone! Add "To Cheer & Sympathy"

    Mail stationary used to have selections of beautiful flowers! You also got rid of the rose/flower emoticon I always used with my signature on emails. Add "To Cheer You and Sympathy and Thinking Of You" selections. Bring back those flowers! You still have Christmas and New Years selections/many...with SNOW/winter selections when it's nearly May!

  13. Gentlemen:

    Gentlemen:
    For years, I've had my contacts sorted alphabetically by LAST name. For some reason, you've changed them and now they are sorted alphabetically by FIRST name. I much prefer alpha by LAST name, and I'd like for you to correct the situation. We can put a man on the moon, and you're capable of hacking into my computer and having your way with it. So, I'm confident you're able to accommodate my request. I'm not sure why you feel compelled to fix something that isn't broke. Although some have the mindset that if something isn't broke, lets fix it…

  15. Give us a way to rename or change the basename for disposable email addresses.

    Give us a way to rename or change the basename for disposable email addresses. I don't like the basename that I created and would like to be able to edit it or entirely remove it and create a new one.

  16. undo deleted auto suggest email contacts

    So, I "x"ed out some emails that were auto-suggested while entering contacts. I have a large group of people and the ones I have to email weekly varies. I did not realize that "x"ing them out would mean they never get suggested again-- I thought I was just removing them as options for that one message. Now many are missing and it looks like they have been deleted altogether! You need to have a way to undo this as it's way too easy to accidentally delete a contact.

    "For your security, we have disabled all images and links in this email." should be optional for the Spam folder.

  18. Dark Web

    How about a better security if you want to charge everyone to have a clear mailbox?!?!?! I just was informed that my ID is on the DARK WEB! You need to protect users way better than what you're doing. I have never gone on there, yet, it's out there via my creditwise. I would suggest everyone start checking theirs also.

  19. How can I remove all of this protection nonsense off of my emails. I had it so I could turn on my computer and hit the icon. Now I cannot

    I just want a button that says I don't need to use a cell phone, or text or a secondary email to protect my account. I really have nothing that needs to be secured. I'm locked out, and at my age I don't need all this fancy stuff. Just make a button, Yes Secure Me or No Undo My Security.
