  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Put back the add contacts from the email.

    It takes TOO MUCH TIME TO ADD ADDRESSES NOW.
    I have emails going to my trash folder and spam folder that should not be there.

  4. the ads all over the place ****.

    All the ads ****. This is the worst email ever. Will start to use Gmail exclusively if this is what Yahoo has become. Dying like every other old school irrelevant company that can't adapt and make things easier.

  5. 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!

  8. mark as read

    Before the latest update, we could check any number of unread mails and hit "k" as a hot key to mark them as "read". Now we have to go through the drop-down to do it. Bring back the hot key!

  9. 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.

  10. I don't like the new version of mail. It doesn't have the user-friendly options that classic has.

    My mother and I use Yahoo. My mother is 90 years old and deaf so she relies on her email for communication. She is getting more confused and the little box at the bottom right that says "one click away from your upgraded inbox" is annoyingly in the way. She is constantly clicking on it by accident and I have to change it back to the classic version on a daily basis. Is there a way to get rid of that box? She will never use the new version of email because the change is just too much for her…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. THEMES

    These new themes are not attractive!!! There should be theme that are stimulating and inspirational. Themes like nature, geography, landscape, astronomy and other subjects.

  16. I don't mind ads but your ads are too intrusive.

    I don't mind ads, after all yahoo provides us with a free service. But ads can be tailored not to be intrusive when one uses a service. In that case I will white-list yahoo mail.

  17. Phishing Malware coming through Yahoo ads

    There is a phishing malware scheme coming through on yahoo advertising. It warns and threatens that your computer has been compromised, and then says through a recording that you need to call a number to restore the computer. DO NOT CALL THE NUMBER! Simply disconnect your internet connection and close your browser. Then restore the internet connection.
    This is annoying though, and most likely some people are unfortunately calling the phishing scheme. This has been going on for a couple of months now. Why has yahoo not fixed this? Yahoo is currently playing a part in distributing this phishing scheme…

  18. When I open an email and read down - it jumps back to the top all the time

    Stop interfering when I am scrolling down and reading an email. The program keeps jumping me back to the top of the email.

  20. views

    It would appear you have completely ignored the many people who want to Hide Views on a more permanent basis. Why cannot you allow for this? On my laptop, I have only so much real estate, and your expanded list of Views cuts down on my ability to look at my own, personal folders. Please, implement this, or let me have my old interface back permanently, where there was no such problem with Views.
