  1. 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…

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

  4. AD's

    The **** ad's slow the email process, during the composition of an email as the ad changes it freezes the program. There is no need to have ad's in the email section, seriously how many people do you honestly think watch the **** at all? I'll give this **** a chance, but there should be an option to change back .

  8. 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…

    Restore the Classic mail button. It is missing. People want the Classic format. This is a major thing...not a minor issue. Thanks!

  14. 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 .

  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?

  17. Many things are wrong with the new mail format/restore Classic mail. Thanks!

    Hard to use. Delete is off center and purple may not be for men/women. I can't write an e mail without it malfunctioning..putting things in strange locations...takes up too much space. Buttons are in strange locations. Side list is too faint. Classic mail was perfect. The new mail is far from perfect. We are not bored with Classic mail. Restore Classic mail to all. Thanks!

  18. font size

    I want the font size of the inbox to be larger. I do not want to zoom in especially for yahoo mail and then have to zoom out again for every other webpage that I use. It is bizarre that the font on this yahoo page is larger than the font in the new inbox.

    I don't want this upgrade. It's terrible and has too many extras that I don't want. All I want is the simple email that I had.

  20. 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.
