  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. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  7. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. blocking domain

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

  15. Disposable addresses broken

    Not sure where to post - today did not receive any of my news emails, although my main account is working fine, the disposable email addresses that have worked for the past years are not coming through today. Sent a test email to one of these disposable email addresses for my yahoo.co.za account - failed with "This user does not have a yahoo.co.za account". Tried with my older yahoo.co.in disposable email addresses, these also fail and again the main yahoo.co.in account works.

  16. 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…

  17. number of contacts in a list

    How do I determine the number of contacts in a list? The old system provided the number of contacts in a list.

  18. Option for adding new contacts

    Yahoo should provide an option that enables you to tap on the email address of someone sending email, and adding this person to your contact list straight away. At the moment, I have to copy and paste (or write down) the email of the person sending an email, and then going into Contacts and manually add the person.

  19. deal view

    1) Kill the banner that appears above the email message. It pushes down the actual message and is extremely irritating.

    2) The collated deal view is fine in that I can look at it if I choose to.

    Any time you do something that makes it more difficult for me to access the actual mail message, drives me to consider a different mail product.

  20. Time zone Warning

    Delete this setting. It appears more than just me are annoyed with this. It is still amazing that this is an issue when the mobile phones figured this out well over a decade ago. Strange how a progressive company as Yahoo cant seem to figure this one out.
