  1. Contacts should stay on the main mail page.

    It's mail. I shouldn't have to open up a new browser tab.

  5. Go back to my old format; ability to print the whole page from the drop-down and ability to open my attachment before sending my email.

    Go back to my old format; bring back print option in the drop-down; ability to print the whole screen; ability to open my attachment before sending my email; and there are emails I couldn't read the whole page and had to move the bottom bar. My husband said he can do all these with gmail. Why make changes that make things difficult and time consuming?

  6. Get rid of it. EVERY time yahoo changes things they are worse.

    Get rid of it. EVERY time yahoo changes things they are worse. Date separation ( earlier in the week, etc) makes mail harder to read, is a distraction, and WORST of all, is completely irrelevant. It unnecessarily spreads the reading field. The red delete email trash bin is too far away and covers the date when hovered over. it should be with all the other functions -'mark as read','search emails', and 'yellow star' this email........RIGHT WHERE IT USED TO BE!!!!! And adds in the middle of my email list instead of only at the top???????

  7. Block addresses by domain name

    Blocking individual addresses does little to stop the plethora of SPAM these days. If we can add a block by domain name feature, this would help cut down on repeat spammer domains.

  8. Where are the contacts?

    Every time I try to access my contacts, the mail system opens a new window and takes me back to the old version of Yahoo. This is very annoying.

    Also, something weird has been happening with my mail lists. I haven't changed a thing, but suddenly one of my longer list is missing about 30 addresses. I just tried to send out an email to one of my lists with about 10 people on it. Only 5 people actually received the email, despite me very carefully checking to see that I had clicked on the appropriate email list. Again, very…

  11. Stop messing with the mail. It worked before and now it doesn't half the time.

    Return to the previous Yahoo Mail format. You have screwed everything about mail up. Half the time, I get error messages whenever I try to the log in screen. Lots of times, individual mails don't load when clicked. Lots of times, Yahoo says it can't delete a message, after I have read it and chosen to delete it.

    If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does know.

  15. Views

    I understand you are not willing to allow your customers the option of deleting Views but can you at least allow us to move it under our Folders so we don't have to "Hide" it everytime we sign into Yahoo mail?

  17. Time zone Warning

    Delete this setting. It appears more than just me are annoyed with this. It is still amazing that this is an issue when the mobile phones figured this out well over a decade ago. Strange how a progressive company as Yahoo cant seem to figure this one out.

  18. Option for adding new contacts

    Yahoo should provide an option that enables you to tap on the email address of someone sending email, and adding this person to your contact list straight away. At the moment, I have to copy and paste (or write down) the email of the person sending an email, and then going into Contacts and manually add the person.

  19. Filters

    I just switched to the new email format. Not only is it very 'busy' now....I like the streamlined look, but I filter a lot of emails into folders to keep the Inbox clean. The problem is, with the old format, I could go to the drop down above the email and click to 'filter messages like these'. With the new format, this is gone andf I have to go to settings, copy and save thew email address, then go to filters and paste it so I can filter the emails into a folder. Who thought it was a good idea…
