  1. I want the reading pane to be blank when I choose

    In the old Yahoo mail when I clicked the inbox icon to refresh the reading pane went blank. This is good for privacy in case of shoulder surfers please can we have it back.

  2. Option to append a note to any saved message

    How about adding an option to be able to append a NOTE to any saved email? This would be very helpful for references.

  3. With new browsers (like Firefox or Chrome), a Mail user can not select to save attachments to a designated folder like under IE.

    With new browsers (like Firefox or Chrome), a Y!Mail user can not select to save attachments to a designated folder like previously under IE browser. Just like with IE browser, within Mail a user should be able to "save" any attachments to any directory / folder of his/her preference, to help organize the files / data. With the new browsers, however, currently a user can save / download attachments to some directory / folder (which is not selectable and is almost unknown to the user).

  5. Lists for Basic.

    I am being forced back to “Basic” email as I have an XP operating system. I need the ability to use my “lists” of grouped email contacts. I send out dog rescue run sheets to groups of people at once. I was able to do that before but now not on the basic email. Can you PLEASE add use of lists to the basic version. I believe I’m paying for Pro Lots of people still use XP. Thank you.

  7. Promote a day for people to delete old emails and empty their trash. I bet it saves many Exabytes of storage and helps speed searches.

    Have a national recycling day for emails. MANY emails we get are garbage or daily list mails. I bet if every Yahoo user deleted unimportant emails like sales ads or old conversations and emptied their trash and spam folders just once, it'd save huge amounts of storage on Yahoo and probably speed the system up since searches should improve. Some people already do this diligently but I bet many or even most don't. I try to be good about it but I just saw I have 6000 emails in my inbox. I bet I need to keep about 50 of…

  8. Filters

    You should have a 'Create New Filter' at the ... or right click button so that it can automatically does everything. Now it is too troublesome.

  9. email display in new format is bad, without a good setting

    The overall upgrade is worse but still usable. However, there's one problem that needs to be fixed. Emails are being displayed in a format that isn't fully expanded to the right. There's an arrow to expand it, but I can't find a setting that makes it show expanded automatically.

    Poor UI design

    I want to list my passwords entries alphabetically, but only options are to SORT by newest or oldest dates. I would appreciate it if Yahoo gave the ability to alphabetize password entries.

  11. Control buttons missing

    Control buttons missing!!

    If you insist on using this "new" format, either put the control buttons back on the header (particularly delete and move) or leave the old one. It is working well.

  15. download attachment file name with timestamp

    This feature was there with Yahoo Mail before. Then they removed it.

    When downloading the attachment, it would be nice to have unique file name, preferably date and time, like 201901241430. It was only date before.

    It always comes up with the file name archive, which might overwrite previous files and slows down.

  17. I hate scrolling down multiple page when I forget to check my email for days. having multiple pages was much better

    I hate scrolling down multiple page when I forget to check my email for days. having multiple pages was much better I would know which page to look for something. clicking a button was easier then scrolling forever to get to a real old email.

  19. time zone

    If you live in Arizona, which stays on MST/PDT year-round, you cannot choose a suitable city to set the time zone correctly. As a result, the annoying flag and notice stays on the screen and there's nothing you can do about it. Please add Phoenix or Tucson to the pull-down list of suitable cities.

  20. We couldn't load this message. Retry!

    No email will load since yesterday. Tried on Chrome and Safari. Also can't check boxes to move items to delete/spam. I see a lot of these messages in the feedback. Please advise the community on an estimated fix date.
