  1. Gets Hung up trying to enter New Contact

    This isn't an idea it is a matter of the new inbox when I tried to enter a new contact. I entered the the first, last name and email address. I hit the "Save" button and it got hung up. Tried doing it five times with the same results I put the first and last name on the First name line entered the email address and hit save and it worked fine. Go figure!

  2. Email issues

    I have to close the program every time I want to view a message in another folder. It allows me to read one and then it won't let me do anything else. It won't go to a different folder, it won't let me delete, and it won't let me do go back into the folder unless I shut down my internet window. And all these ads are getting ridiculous when the script won't run and I have to shut down the internet window and log back in just to get the mail to work.

  3. Wording according to countries

    Perhaps you could adapt more to countries according to their culture. For example I live in the UK and I get things like "send a holiday card", which means nothing to me, we would say "send a Christmas card" instead. The language might be the same but we're not Americans!

  5. unsubscribe window is a useless feature

    A very useless feature since 1) 99% of time it doesn't know how to unsubscribe. 2) It only gets in the way since 99.99% of people unsubscribe from what they don't want. 3) NONE OF IT'S SUGGESTIONS ONLY <1% OF PEOPLE WANT TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM. THESE IDIOT'S WITH THEIR NEED TO DO SOMETHING OTHER THAN MAKING IT ACTUALLY WORK REAL WELL.

  6. top inbox message still disappears

    Top inbox message still disappears from display almost all the time. Yahoo closed a bunch of posts complaining about this but didn't actually fix the problem. Working on Chrome from a Win7 laptop.

  7. preview

    Unable to see preview of attachments. When clicked on the attachment, it blinks like it want's to open but disappear on the 1st page. I believe second or third page, would show up but page 1, for sure, only shows up for a second and disappear. Might have to go back to the older version.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  15. spam

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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. 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…
