  1. contacts

    Contacts DO NOT POPULATE the "TO" line when you type the recipients name. The contact folder cannot be found in the new Yahoo Email design. When you click on the Contacts folder on the upper right it takes you completely back to the "Old" format. Clicking on the "TO" on the recipient line does NOT access the address book. What good is a new format for email that does NOT include my contacts. Basically the new format is incomplete and it SUCKS. I don't plan to use it anymore especially since several users have completely lost all of their contacts.…

  8. New idea

    I understand that we can add multiple email accounts (even non-Yahoo ones!) to be managed from one place, which is great. But what if we also added our cell phone numbers to write and read SMS messages quickly? A lot of times people text me, but I want to save it and access the whole coversation with them in a more permanent, email-kinda way.

  9. Formatting

    Formatting is never retained when cutting and pasting into email format. Why? It is very difficult for me to run my business. I draft documents in word, then cut and paste into an email. Paragraph formatting, indenting, bullet points are NEVER retained in the correct format. PLEASE FIX THIS! It has been going on since the last update, and this update did not fix it.

  10. I would like to be able to remove some tabs and reorder others in the mail menu.

    For instance, I never use "Starred" or "Archive". Also, I'd like any folders I make to be included in the main mail menu. I don't need a separate "Folders" sub-category.

  12. Advertisement at the top of the inbox items list

    Advertisements give the means to Yahoo! necessary for providing the great experience for their customers (us); however, these ads, when misplaced or in the way of normal surfing, can be as harmful as losing user-base (who actually make the advertising possible in the first place).
    In light of these comments, I would like to suggest that you (Yahoo!):
    1. give the customers (and users) the ability to disable auto-playback of video and
    2. apply a different background color to the text advertisement place at the top of the Inbox items list.

    Thank you for your great services, Yahoo!

  13. When I click the X to close an email, it just opens the last one I had open. Please CLOSE and go back to LIST.

    Go back to list of emails when I close open message instead of going back to the previously opened message. I don't want to just toggle between emails. I would never want that.

  14. My signature - I can't edit the spacing, Why? I don't like the way it is - too much space between the lines.

  15. Contacts are not in the new format. Although accessible by going to the old format, this is a weakness & should be corrected

  19. paste

    Pasting text does not work properly - at least, not in Internet Explorer. The pasted content goes to the beginning of the email message, not to the spot where I want to insert it. I then have to cut all the text that is supposed to go above the pasted content and paste that, too. Very kludgy.
