  2. spam

    Spam folder does not update item count until the folder is actually slected.

    Since Yahoo has the habit of flagging my legit mail as spam (50% of what get flagged as spam is not), I need to know when I have new items in my spam folder. The count indicator does not update until after I've opened the folder for 10-20 seconds. So that means I need to manually check my spam box more often than my inbox so I don't miss mail.

    This is basic functionality that was lost with the forced move to the "improved" interface.

  3. LET ME DISABLE THE NEW TRENDING NEWS NOTIFICATIONS FEATURE IN MAIL

    LET ME DISABLE THE NEW TRENDING NEWS NOTIFICATIONS FEATURE IN MAIL. In settings, I can only enable/disable desktop notifications. I don't have a way to shut off these annoying new news notifications that pop up in the Yahoo Mail tab.

  4. new contacts list

    When I go to the contacts list I want to see ALL the names on the list not just a few for each letter of the alphabet with X more if I click on that tab

    YOU have no right to decide who should appear on my list and who should be hidden from view

    please stop messing with things, old system is better, new system is garbage!

  6. The new contact list update is super confusing.

    It doesn't alphabetize any of the lists and is really hard to read or find any contacts you're looking for.

  7. The artwork for your newest emoticons looks as if they were drawn by a no talent 6 year old. Bring back last years emoticons.

    Give us back the previous version of your emoticons. The new ones are less animated and the artwork is VERY poor quality and definitely not as creative as the previous ones available for use.

  8. Views

    I understand you are not willing to allow your customers the option of deleting Views but can you at least allow us to move it under our Folders so we don't have to "Hide" it everytime we sign into Yahoo mail?

  9. blocking domain

    I want to block a domain. Blocking the email address does no good because the spammers just use another name each time.

  10. How can I hide the right hand side column permanently?

    I use the new Yahoo Mail web interface with "Right" side view message and the advertisement right hand side column pops up at every new email message view.
    Is yahoo so kind to make it go away permanently or they want us all to move over to gmail?

  11. 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.

  12. Stop messing with the mail. It worked before and now it doesn't half the time.

    Return to the previous Yahoo Mail format. You have screwed everything about mail up. Half the time, I get error messages whenever I try to the log in screen. Lots of times, individual mails don't load when clicked. Lots of times, Yahoo says it can't delete a message, after I have read it and chosen to delete it.

    If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does know.

  13. 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.

  14. Get rid of "Yahoo Trending" popup!

    Get rid of the "Yahoo Trending" popup. I don't care what other people are looking at and overall, it's just really annoying!

  16. email groups

    You need to be able to click on a contact and see what lists (or groups) they are a part of. I have groups of 40 to 50 contacts that sometimes need to be moved from one list to another, but I have no way of knowing what lists a contact is on without reading through all of the contacts in each of my 5 lists.

  18. Lock in sort function

    When I log into my email, on my mac via your website, I have to go the sort options and select sort by unread. If I go into another folder and go back to my inbox I have to reselect sort by unread which is very annoying. How do I lock in sort by unread?

  20. You added problems with new contacts on the right side. Maybe it's time to reinvent your mission, vision and concept?

    Dear Yahoo! Mail,

    I am your user since 2003. I had a chance to switch to Gmail, but their contacts and other features made me unsatisfied.
    However, it seems that you do not understand what EMAIL business is. First, it looks like you do changes without any concept. Like you just do what users say (by the voting system which is also strange). Second, it looks like you do not want to earn money from the mail service.
    Let me explain, and I feel your data, which I hope you analyze, confirms my thoughts.
    Only in USA, there are 8…
