  1. Too slow, Too many unimprovements have been made.

    The whole platform is very slow, maybe because of the pop up ads that are always in the side bar. Stop trying to update and make every little change, why not make an easy to use, SIMPLE, BASIC, and fast service. Every time it is updated, it seems more user unfriendly. You wouldn't have to run as many ads if you were not paying a programming team to keep making yahoo worse and worse.
    SIMPLIFY and stop changing things. Think CRAIGSLIST....

  3. In Accessing Contact this new yahoo is not user friend

    The contacts should be available and accessible right at the top left side menu as usual. The current version does not support easy access! If you go to contacts at the top right icon, the new mail systems switches you to basic mail automatically. It's like not well settled

  5. New yahoo settings are very poor.

    New yahoo settings are very poor. Extremely unimportant limited options for users, disable conversations missing, that "me" is more than irritating.Big dissapointment. Why?

  7. Preview of Attachments

    Why do you keep messing with Yahoo mail. You NEVER 'fix' anything. You just ***** things up. The latest is that I cannot preview an attachment in my email. I hit Preview and the first page comes up for about ONE SECOND and then disappears and cannot be read. The second page and on CAN be read. What a joke! Where do you get these incompetent programmers?!

  8. Stop trying to force users to try the "new" Yahoo!

    Stop trying to force users to try the "new" Yahoo! Speaking as one who has tried it only to go back to using the classic style, I think it is wrong to continually try to enforce change where change is not wanted or welcome.

  9. Blocking Spam

    I do NOT like the (forced) new method of blocking spam email addresses by going through Settings, etc! Too time consuming!! PLEASE go back to the easy 'right click' method that was available in the old classic Yahoo email !!

  11. You seriously need an undo button!!!

    I wrote a rather lengthy email only to accidentally hit some key, don't even know which & "poof" all was gone! Everything! Although I had very much wanted to send that email, it just didn't seem worth the time or effort to think what I had written & then rewrite it. So, I just didn't.

  14. Most Settings Options Missing

    Most of the settings options under the settings (gear) icon after upgrading to the new inbox are missing. The only options I get are for changing the theme, message layout and inbox spacing. None of the other settings I used to have with the old inbox are there. I couldn't find anything in the Community Help and I can't revert back to my old inbox.

  15. cursor goes back to start when typing

    when typing a new email or replying to a existing one the cursor resets to the start point at random intervals

    this is extremely annoying and a sign of software that has not been tested properly

  17. typing an email and about 4to 5 words in it jumps up a line sometimes in the middle

    when typing an email on the 4 or 5 word it jumps to the line above, often in the middle of a word. I have checked to make sure I'm not hitting an incorrect key. This update has so many things wrong with it. Please use and test all changes before implementing them!!! Do not wait for us to tell you what to fix. I'm wondering if all your people use Gmail because I can't see them putting up with this.

  20. delete

    The problem is that the delete boxes are rather small, and if you miss clicking the box, the message you are trying to delete opens up. when you go back to the inbox from the opened message, all of your previously clicked and waiting to be deleted emails are no longer selected.

    Short of it is that it would be better to not have the area around the action box open the email if the box is missed while trying to select it.

    Thanks!
