  1. Please restore the button for Classic mail. I don't want this version. Thanks! The button is missing.

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

  2. Issues with new Contacts format

    Many annoyances with the new Contacts format when viewing on a desktop:

    1. Can no longer view Contacts as a full page.

    2. Doesn't show all contacts under each letter. Instead you have to click on "2 more" or "5 more" just to see them all for that letter.

    3. Clicking on a contact doesn't show all the information for that contact. Instead, you have to click on "View more information".

    4. Previously, if the birthday didn't include a year, the Contacts page still showed the month and day. Now, the Contacts page shows birthdays if a month, day, and…

  3. EACH NEW ADD CAUSES A BLANK BROWSER PAGE TO OPEN! THIS MUST STOP!!!

    Each time a new add opens to the right of my e-mails, a new blank browser page opens. I have to close the new page (which closes the add), and within a second or less, another new add pops open, which causes yet another blank browser page to open, which I have to close. This has happened as many as 12 times within a 10 second period, which is very disruptive! There has to be a way to put a stop to this! If Yahoo is going to make money by posting adds, they also need to support those who…

  4. Fix Adding Contacts to Lists in Yahoo New Mail

    Expand Manage Contacts in Yahoo New Mail, to add the ability to add an existing contact to a previously established "List". This feature is available in Yahoo Classic but not in Yahoo New Mail.

  5. Don't want upgrade!!!!

    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.

  6. Can't view contacts details, only unasked-for past emails

    Yet another unwelcome yahoo feature rammed down our throats on an old Windows platform. Now contacts show beside the new inbox. Good idea.

    But how can I view all my contact info, addresses, ALT phone numbers etc.? Clicking on a contact only gives a string of previous emails, not all contact details. Instead of blocking access to valuable infot, please bring back ability to view and edit all details of a given contact, not the incomplete function now interfering.

  7. Add a contact from received message

    Bring back the capability to add a new contact directly from a received message! It is ridiculous that you have to copy the email address, exit the email message, open up your contact list, and add a new contact! Why did you ever take away this function?!? Please bring back the drop down menu for accessing contact details when simply hovering your mouse over an email address!

  9. 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???????

  12. 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!

  17. 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?

  20. 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.
