  2. Please restore the button for Classic mail. I don't want this version. Thanks! The button is missing.

    Restore the Classic mail button. It is missing. People want the Classic format. This is a major thing...not a minor issue. Thanks!

  3. I wouldn't mind the ads on the right side of my email screen if they would just be still. No spinning, blinking, buzzing or whirring.

  6. Folder View

    I can't see the entire folder name. Make the Folder view area width adjustable by the user.

  7. 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…

  9. Stop Ads Over Personal Email on Left Side of Screen

    stop putting ads over my personal mail boxes on left side so that I can't see my own boxes. I would also like my personal email boxes to be up at the top of the left side of the screen instead of "views" which I never use.

  10. This sucks

    I did not want to go to the new mail. I can not find my archive folder. The icon to switch to the new mail covered over my folders so now I have the new mail with the feed back covering the folders. This is totally messed up.

  11. Images (logos) on signatures used to be possible on the old Yahoo system, why not the new system ?

    Allow logos to be included in signatures - as they used to be under the old system

  12. More options when writing emails.

    It would be great to see more options when writing mail, with regards to font. Actual size (in pts.), underline, etc. Also a few more options in formatting, possibly columns with adjustable width and justification.

    Also, and this is probably something I'm missing, but how do I create and save a signature?

  13. Make Views folder in mail optional!

    I have noted Yahoo has decided not to allow users to permanently remove Views. This is intrusive, especially as it keeps popping up with so-called news that I overpaid for something. This means Yahoo is monitoring all my online shopping! It is unacceptable. Yahoo, as a long time user, I implore you to rethink this. I am also talking to Verizon, your new owners.

  14. Many things are wrong with the new mail format/restore Classic mail. Thanks!

    Hard to use. Delete is off center and purple may not be for men/women. I can't write an e mail without it malfunctioning..putting things in strange locations...takes up too much space. Buttons are in strange locations. Side list is too faint. Classic mail was perfect. The new mail is far from perfect. We are not bored with Classic mail. Restore Classic mail to all. Thanks!

  16. filters

    Adding a filter remains inconvenient, as if designed in, like, 1993.? For example, if you want to add a filter, you might - naturally - want to create a new folder for your new filter. But did you think to do this before you went to create a filter? Most people wouldn't. Hint: WORKFLOW. As it is, you have to completely exit out of the filter thing, go back and add a folder, and then go back in and start adding a filter from scratch. There are much better ways to design this.

  17. Please stop violating my privacy by reading my mail to harvest it for advertisers. Please don't make me switch to Gmail!

    Please do not violate my privacy by reading my email. The fact that I am spending time on your site, reading your content and clicking on your ads should be enough. Please adopt industry standard behavior and stop this practice.

  18. Stop asking if I want Yahoo my home page when it ALREADY is my home page!

    Stop asking me to do something that has been done YEARS ago. We know you ARE able to detect the home page settings, so it is endlessly, needlessly, INTRUSIVE to keep prompting for an action that has ALREADY been effected years ago. Detect that I have done it and please stop the prompting. Just stop please.

  19. The letters are blurry! It's like I need reading glasses now. Don't like the font at all.

    Terrible blurry font. Hard to read - makes me dizzy, like all of a sudden, I can't see. going back to the old version.
