  1. Bring back shift+3 (#) to delete

    Sure there is a "delete" key, but many of us keyboard users can use the right hand to navigate and the left hand to # delete. The delete key is buried way over on the right side of the keyboard.

  2. type face too light

    The typeface used in the new Yahoo mail is too light and hard to read. Why change it? It was fine before.

  3. Views Folder

    Hello,

    one improvement that would be useful is the ability to delete all documents from the 'Views' folder. While it is a useful feature, I am a little apprehensive about the security aspect of not being able to permanently delete documents from this folder. If you can implement that security option, it would be an improvement. Thank you.

  4. Preview of attachments isn't working

    As mentioned below by others, the preview of attachments isn't working. I'm posting this myself as I see that the advice given by the mail support person is completely unhelpful:

    "If you click on the box for the attachment it will open in preview mode. If you click below the box it will download the attachment.

    Thank you!
    Mail Support".

    I think anyone letting you know that the thing isn't working has already tried to open it. Ditto the advice of another support person:

    "If you still find that the issue is happening, please see this help page for troubleshooting: …

  11. fake draft with adds

    Yahoo shows (1) draft in my Drafts folder. I click on it, and the page says at the top there are zero messages in the folder, but THERE IS A VIDEO ADD. (A YAHOO ADD, NOT A MESSAGE, SMACK IN THE MIDDLE OF MY DRAFT FOLDER VIEWING PANE) This is baiting me to look into a folder so you can put up a full size add in the middle of my screen, right in front of my face without me clicking on anything. There's enough add space available without diving right into auto-launch videos triggered by YAHOO's false reporting of…

  12. entries are squeezed together and hard to read now!

    This has been happening for about a week or more now - the emails that are underneath the wonderful 'ads" now are squeezed underneath it so its not only hard to read the header on the email but hard to get to it to open it! This happens at all the ads you have added into the email box! Also you can barely see the last entry in the email listing as well. Same thing happens but you cant scroll down far enough to see the last one. I hope you can fix this - its very annoying

  13. Viewing emails

    I clicked "go back to original folder" in the "After moving a message" section of the settings, but after deleting/moving an email, but it always opens the next email. How do I stop this?

  14. Raw email address lists. It is very difficult to see the actual emails or email list of people that you are writing an email to.

    Please make it possible to see the actual email list that one is sending an email to before you send it. I see the name tags but can not review the actual addresses easily to make sure that they are correct. Toggle button to go from nametag view to actual addresses.
    Thankyou

  15. Theme in Notepad - Not Available As a Mail Theme

    I love the blueish-greenish background color that seems to be automatic in the 'Yahoo Notepad' and would like to use it as well in Yahoo Mail but I can't find it or anything like it as a 'theme' in mail. Am I missing something?

    A Yahoo representative responded:

    I just gone through the issue and the note pad theme which is coming is in Classic mail version but the account is in New mail version.

    Since you have a Yahoo account through one of our network partners, you cannot access the Classic Mail any more. I can see how that'd…

  16. photo attachments won't load

    I cannot even send ONE photo now. It loads and then has an exclamation point and I have to choose whether to send as an image or delete. Well of course I want to send it as an image, but I would prefer to send it as an attachment like in the past. When I tried to load it as an image into the email it fails every time and no, the image is not too big. Your changes are so stupid. Why do you keep doing this? Leave something that already works alone!

  19. Make it easier like before to block unwanted emails mlike previous version. Why do I have to type in each of maybe 15 junk emails.

    Bring back just clicking on unwanted emails and blocking all selections at once. Having to enter all email addresses when emails don't even show address is beyond ridiculous!

  20. Blank Subject Line

    Yes, I do want to send the email with no subject line. No, I don't want that question asked. Sometimes I send an email to myself for work. Don't need a subject. Sometimes my wife wants me to send a brief email, maybe an attachment....no, I don't need a subject. Can we at least get the option to turn that annoyance off? Thanks.
