  1. I absolute hate your new format. Too few emails are being displayed. Cannot find Contact list.

    Show the contact list. I am not able to find it. Also you are displaying too few emails, on my laptop only five, cannot expand window. I have this new format. How do I go back to the old one?

    Hi there,

    Our engineers are working on incorporating Contacts into the new format. We appreciate your patience while we work on this.

    In the meantime, you can access contacts by clicking on the icon on the upper right side (small icon made up of a rectangle with three small stacked squares). This will open Contacts in a new tab of your browser in the Classic Mail look. You can also access your contacts via https://contacts.yahoo.com.

    Thank you!
    Mail Support

  6. Slow speed

    I don't mind the new format but I do mind the often slow web speeds of Yahoo.

  7. Ad blocker is for my protection, not to deny you ad revenue

    Until third-party ads stop being a significant source of malware, using an ad blocker is a smart, even necessary, protective measure. When you can assure me that it's not possible for a malicious ad to make its way into my browser via Yahoo or any ad network is uses, I'll be happy to add Yahoo to my whitelist.

  8. Alphabetical Order

    In ALL (contacts) the list is in alphabetical order. In LISTS (contacts) the names are in random order. Alphabetical order has been used for hundreds of years to search. It's still the best way.

  9. Improve your Spam filters PLEASE.

    I nearly deleted my account because of it. I'm sick to the back teeth of receiving emails regarding African Lottery wins, being the beneficiary of an inheritance, dodgy high end labelled goods at ridiculously low prices and the links to **** dating sites. It's shameful that Yahoo, who have some of the best IT guys in the world working for them can't get this right. My computer is a family computer that my kid has access to.

  20. Stop asking me to accept the new privacy terms

    Every single time I log in to my email since April 11, 2018, I have to accept or dismiss the new Yahoo Oath privacy terms. Please make that stop. I've accepted multiple times.
