  1. AB0006 - Yahoo Mail - Software version number should be accessible

    AB0006 - Yahoo Mail - Software version number should be accessible

    A software version number should be available to the end user. I found one a long time ago in classics past, but do not know how to get it now. Note that it should be unique for all changes of software, small or large. I am sure that the software is changing all the time, in small or large increments. AB0006.

  4. Unread mail a different color

    Unread mail messages should be a different color than the read messages. It is currently too difficult to quickly see the difference.

  5. I would like to see a setting that I can say how much Trash I can keep. It currently only keeps the last 7 days.

    I think each person should be able to keep trash for at the very least 30 days.

  6. Remove the new "Confirm Delete" pop up.

    I see that you mention previously that it has been fixed. It has not! If I delete a message I would like it gone immediately, without having to click yet again. Plus as we all know they are saved for a time in the deleted folder. Please fix.

  7. The selection box for mail is too frigging small. 90% of the time you select mail to delete it and the **** thing opens anyway.

    The selection boxes for emails is too small. 90% of the time when selecting emails to delete or move the dang thing opens the email, losing the selections you just made. I use several email programs and only YAHOO has this quality problem. STOP OPENING EMAILS when selected. This email is a POC.

  9. cannot view full headers/raw message on new desktop mail ; cannot FORWARD (without OPENing virus email)

    Yahoo1010_ggg The function [View Raw Image] Does NOT work. Never, Never, Never OPEN a bad/malicious/virus email because you will regret the disastrous consequences. ATT needs to allow (ALL) emails to be FORWARDED, WITHOUT having to OPEN the bad email, to perform the FORWARD function. I need ability to (1) access the Entire RAW email [Header, with ALL the IP address info, & Body], (2) Copy the Entire RAW email, (3) activate the FORWARD function, (4) paste COPY of Entire RAW email, at top of the temporary area. (5) enter the [Send-To] address, (6) execute Send. EX: bad email is Extortion…

  11. Dump trash, dispose of selected mass volumes of saved mail,

    The ability to selectively dispose of large quantities of selected email. Selected by dates, or other would be very useful and helpful.

  12. There is an issue with moving emails to a specific folder.

    I made a mail search for emails named "microwave" and from the search list tried to move them to a folder named "microwave". All the emails were moved except the ones in "sent" folder. I had to then switch to Classic Email and then it worked.

  15. After I read an email I want the type face to go to a lighter shade so I can tell which emails I have already read -- like it used to do.

    After I have read an email, I want the type to get light again, like it used to do, so I can tell which ones I have already read.

  16. Yahoo Mail - Pink oval appears in TO field for all old elements in Draft folder

    Yahoo Mail - Pink oval appears in TO field for all old elements in Draft folder

    Emails placed in Draft folder prior to the new software, when retrieved, show a pink oval in the TO field. When left there upon mailing it cause an error; when deleted all is well. Draft folder entries created under the new software do not have this problem (so far). If there is a reason for this, it should be explained in Help. If not, the appropriate workaround (as above) should be documented. AB0005.

  18. Unable to separate threads on my iphone now. It is all or nothing!

    An email should not have to include every single thread with it to forward it. Privacy should be an issue with Yahoo! Give us the old Yahoo back and fire whoever coded this new mess!

  19. What happened to my Yahoo Mail contacts?

    I went to send an email to someone, and typed the first letter of their name. In the past,this has always linked to their full address, as listed in my contacts. This time, it didn't. I tried several people, and it failed in each case. WHAT HAPPENED TO MY YAHOO CONTACTS? Now I've got to type in each person's e-mail address completely? Sometimes I send the same message to a dozen people! WHY ARE THE LISTED CONTACTS NOT COMPLETING THE E-MAIL ADDRESSES ANY MORE?!?!?!?

  20. Why when typing an email and go back somewhere in the email to correct or add a character does the system delete the next letter or characte

    Why when typing an email and I go back somewhere to change a character does the system delete the next character or space. I just had a situation where back in the email I had to make a character change and I ended up having to re-type 2 or 3 lines of copy to get the change made. The system is replacing when typing is done instead of adding any additional typed characters. THIS MUST CHANGE
