  1. layout

    The "new" Yahoo mail is especially disconcerting and NOT user friendly if you have certain disabilities as I do. Adding glitz and glamor to a basic communication medium creates greater difficulty than using a more straight forward layout that Yahoo had with the previous version. More stuff is not better, and simple presentation without adding more needless clutter is far better for those of us with issues. Please provide the option to stick with the previous version. Thank you.

  2. cannot search mail

    wheel keeps turning but nobodys home...WHY with this dumb new yahoo can i not search the inbox or anywhere else to find emails? SEARCH does not load any results at all. this is an important feature and i see many old complaints. is nobody working to FIX this or what? now i cant post comment because it somehow automatically signed me out? i am signed in, but it canceled that. also it opens a new window every time instead of changing pages. 4 yahoo mail pages open and still cant perform? bummer

  3. No forwarding without paying extra

    I am really not pleased with not being able to have @yahoo.com emails forward automatically unless I pay extra. My main account is, and has been, a plus account for many years. In fact, the price has recently gone up significantly. I'd really like an explanation as to why the other 2 yahoo.com accounts we utilize cannot be auto-forwarded to this account without paying for it. Please note that I am also currently trying to make arrangements to stop using Yahoo mail completely and you would then lose the amount I already pay. I don't know where else to put…

  5. We need to be able to export contacts as .vcf files, not just .csv. Android folks need .vct.

  6. Top bar disappears after reading email. Bring back old version

    Whenever I go into email (on desktop version), the Archive, Move, Delete, Spam icons at the top disappears. This is so annoying. Can no longer delete emails from the top or file emails under different folders, after you go in and read an email and click back to inbox, the top bar disappears including profile, settings, all disappears. Please fix.

  7. Filters should not default to include the subject line

    By default, filters include the subject line (although this behavior doesn't appear consistent). Typically, we want to filter senders, not subjects. I have to click through to 'more options' and remove the subject line from each filter I create.

  10. open calendar automatically on right

    I would like the calendar to open automatically on the right side when opening email and stay opened even when changing folders. Like it shows when I click on the Calendar icon on top right. Sorry, there is no option to attach screenshots!

  12. Be able to forward a suspicious email without opening it

    I get been getting emails concerning PayPal and I cannot send them to PayPal for verification without opening them. It would be a lot better if I could so I would not have to chance a hack.

  13. No “UNDO” function

    The UNDO function is NOT AVAILABLE on the Yahoo Mail app and I LOST A VERY IMPORTANT DRAFT!!
    This feature would be extremely valuable to me and it would GREATLY IMPROVE the application, if it would be added to its features in future versions.

  14. Spam button

    Keep accidentally hitting the Spam button.

    1) Can you please add a setting that gives us the option to "Confirm" a message as "Spam"?

    Or

    2) Could you add a setting that moves the Spam button under the 3 dots?

    Or

    SOMETHING! I have seen that I am not alone in this (I just cannot vote on the other posts anymore).

  18. alpha order list choice

    I want contacts listed in alpha order by last name; do not want to have to change to this option every day. The list defaults to alpha by first name every day - very annoying. Thank you

  19. the space for a photo in the "add contact" makes it impossible to add a contact since there is only room for "first name", no email address.

    make the photo area removable so that i can add a contact. this is frustrating to me because i have been using Yahoo FOREVER, normally like it, but this might make me move to gmail or something else.

  20. Have contacts updated once it's entered.

    When entering a contact and saving it, it does not show up when you type in search window. Although, when you look it up manually it's there... Why? Please fix contacts to work properly!!
