  1. KEEP THE FORMER METHOD OF ADDING NEW CONTACTS

    Keep The Former Method For Adding New Contacts
    It was easy to add new contacts when all I had to do was scroll over the new email address and click on Add Contact. A window opened with the name and email address already there. Yahoo Mail is starting to look more like Gmail. That is not an improvement. I receive emails from new people almost daily. Please keep the good features you had and make it better from there. When you discontinue a useful feature you are creating more work and inconvenience for the people who are using the tools…

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

    provide some pastel coloured backgrounds which are more restful on the eyes, particularly for more elderly users!

  3. Why the **** can't you people just leave the Mail alone?

    Just leave OUR mail alone! This "new" design is UGLY UGLY UGLY UGLY. When something works (and there was NOTHING wrong with the "Classic" look--and why would you call it "Classic" if YOU people thought it was good?), THERE'S NO NEED TO FIX IT OR CHANGE IT.

  4. Maintain inbox sort order please

    I prefer my inbox to be sorted by Unread messages. If I move off the Inbox to another folder and then return to the Inbox, the sort order is no longer by Unread messages, but instead by Date: Newest On Top. This is quite annoying to have to set the sort order each time I navigate to other folders.

  5. 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.

  6. There needs to be a way to delete contacts in bulk! It's archaic and inefficient to have to remove them one at a time.

    Allow me to see the whole list at once; provide checkboxes next to contacts so I can select many at once and delete them together (the same way I can with emails).

    I don't understand. Are you all < 18? > 80?

  8. Transitioning back to Classic does not work the ability to do so needs to be reinstated

    Allow users to transition back to classic. The new "look" is a disaster. Having to go all the way to the BOTTOM of an email string to reply? WTH thought that would be a good idea?

  9. rotating ads are causing the font size to get big and small again

    Every time the ad in the right-hand column changes (or for animated ads, changes size) it's causing the middle panel to change size and that is triggering a 1 second change in font size to super big and then back to where it was. This is SUPER annoying and making it really hard to manage my inbox.

  10. New Mail Format is tiring to work in. Especially forwarding with attachments

    Before, in classic mail, when you forwarded an e-mail you were given the option to change the subject directly, now you have to click on an arrow and click "edit subject" which then takes you to drafts. The problem here is, when you click on your attachment to preview it, it takes you BACK to the e-mail to preview which closes your "subject" line. If you try to edit the subject again it switches back to drafts and closes your attachment preview... did nobody test out forwarding..?

  11. The new contact list email setup is absolutely WORTHLESS!!!!! The old way was better. CHANGE IT BACK

    Put it back the way it was. When I pull an address from the to field to put it in the BCC field it used to disappear from the to field and now it doesn't. FIX IT

  14. print one list in contacts

    I want to print one list of contacts. The only thing that will print is my entire contact file, not just one list. I've had to switch back to the Basic email to do this, but then when I try to use Basic to email a list of contacts, the list will not appear and I have to switch back to New email. I am very frustrated. Do I need to take my account elsewhere?

  15. Where are the contacts?

    Every time I try to access my contacts, the mail system opens a new window and takes me back to the old version of Yahoo. This is very annoying.

    Also, something weird has been happening with my mail lists. I haven't changed a thing, but suddenly one of my longer list is missing about 30 addresses. I just tried to send out an email to one of my lists with about 10 people on it. Only 5 people actually received the email, despite me very carefully checking to see that I had clicked on the appropriate email list. Again, very…

  16. New version is a downgrade missing lots of features, list below:


    1. In an incoming email, lost the menu you would get when clicking on the sender address. No fast way to add to the contacts, search email from, etc.


    2. When sending emails. "Add photos from recent emails"


    3. When sending emails. "Add several files from from recent emails"


    4. When sending emails. "Share files from cloud providers"


    5. Customize the interface to avoid the icon with the monogram near name or address of people in the From, To and Cc fields?


    6. RTL support: In the previous version when typing Hebrew it would automatically sense it and change the writing direction to be from Right…

  18. COPYING CONTENT FROM EXCEL

    Please allow the user to copy/paste from source to yahoo mail and keep the format at the source. When copying from Word that has tab delimited columns the columns are no longer aligned in Yahoo mail. When copying from Excel the user should have the option of keeping the grid boxes.

  19. 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…
