  3. MAJOR SECURITY THREAT on mail.yahoo.com

    You have a security exploit on the mail.yahoo.com website. It is in the ad-generator portion of the page, which you lease/sell to third party vendors. The ad vendors are able to place malware into the ad code, so during an ad refresh on the page, it redirects the whole page to a malware/"click here to close"/virus website. THIS IS A MAJOR SECURITY THREAT. it tracks across 4 browsers (Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) and 3 operating systems. The flaw is in mail.yahoo.com...not the end-user. You can fix this in server side/client side coding if you have a good coder who puts…

  4. all the backgrounds are too dark and the white background is too bright

  6. Slow Performace

    Too annoying and not even responsive when needed... Want to get ride off but couldn't. Either fix or remove your mail service. Everybody is fade up. There is no comparison in between gmail and yahoo. Gmail is much much better. At least make ymail quite lighter and fast responsive .

  10. Filters

    You used to be able to "filter" emails straight from the body of the email. Now there's not an option for that. Instead you have to open the settings, create a filter, going back and forth to the actual message to create the filter. Bring back the option of "filter emails like this" in the body of the email.

  11. Import contacts from Facebook

    Bring back the option to import contacts from Facebook. It's a very important feature to get the contact details of Facebook Friends., It was Yahoo's unique capability that no one has.

  12. Put back the add contacts from the email.

  13. I don't care for the new format. It is very faded and hard to see. Too white and light gray.

    The old format was easier to see. This new one is too faded. Gray on white just doesn't work.

  14. Annoying ad. blocker pop-up.

    Just get rid of the annoying pop-up wanting me to pay you for blocking ads! It interferes with almost every email I attempt.
    If this persists, I shall be leaving TalkTalk. It is ruining an otherwise great service.
    Has it not occured to you that most of us who don't want ads. already have a service to stop them which, by the way, are cheaper than the service you offer!

  15. saving email address to contacts

    Why can't I save new contacts from the email? I used to have an option to add the email to the contacts. A pop up would come up and I'd fill in the missing information. Why can't you fix that and bring it back?

  16. Contact History

    When entering a contact name, the historical email address takes precedence over a correctly edited and saved contact email address. Also, there seems to be no way to delete that historical email address that is no longer wanted and should not be used.

  18. The old format was easier to read

    1. It's very slow. Moving the cursor back to correct an error is even slower.
    2. Reverse type (white on a color) is never a good idea, as each screen user gets a slightly different result.
    3. Sans-serif reverse type, using a thin font makes the whole page much harder to read.
    4. There seems to have been little user-testing. I know, I know, if it's free, the users become the beta test. This isn't working for me.

  19. The folder panel is too narrow. Please add a control to adjust its width.

    The names of my custom folders are truncated. It should be possible to display them fully.

  20. Classic Mail is better -- please let us keep it

    I have continued using Classic Mail for as long as I can because the overall look works so much better for me:

    1. I can see more of my folders and emails on the screen. The list of folders on the left is more compact.
    2. "Smart Views" stays hidden -- I don't have to change it each time like I do with "Views" in the new Mail. (Disabling this altogether would be even better.)
    3. The tabs at the top take up less space.
    4. The themes are more pleasing, IMO.

    Please consider keeping Classic Mail available for those…
