  2. Long folder names do not appear when hovering during a move message

    Full folder names cannot be seen on the left panel. Yahoo!'s solution was to have the names appear when hovering over them. However, if an item is being "dragged and dropped" to a folder, you cannot see the full folder name.

    Either the folder panel needs to be adjustable, or the feature that shows the folder name while hovering over it needs work during a drag and drop action.

  4. The Archive function does not allow me to archive in folders

    Archive does not allow me to create "Folders" Since I cannot create New Folders in normal mode it is difficult to find the Info I need.

  6. searching for something-and it doesn't tell me what folder it is in anymore

    When I would search for an email, (for example, an email from the cable company with a bill in it) it used to show up and let me know what folder it was in. Then I knew if it was moved to my receipts folder, that I had already printed/looked at it and moved it. That is now gone for some reason, and it just says "yahoo"

  8. Does stay in a folder after closing an email from that folder

    I saw admin responded to a user that had the same problem that go to settings, then more and change the settings. There is no option in settings that can solve this issue. I need to stay in a folder, when I open it. Anytime I close an email from a folder, I find myself in Inbox again!

  11. don't delete important emails!!!!!!!!!!

    I tried to create a new folder by renaming one that yahoo provided but I wasn't using. Instead of saving these extremely important emails that I was setting aside, Yahoo deleted them ALL - with absolutely NO way of finding them again!!!!!
    They need to STOP deleting emails that are set aside!
    They did notify me that they couldn't put those emails in the designated folder, but instead of leaving them in my inbox, they got permanently erased!
    HORRIBLE!!!!!
    I will switch to gmail!!

  13. Filters are not functional on existing mails and new incoming mails are not getting pushed (moved) to designated folder

    Setting mail rules (or filters as they are called here) and saving these Filters do not move automatically mails to their folders.
    Seems like new incoming mails are not redirected to folders as well so all moving needs to be done manually.

  17. I would like to see deleted emails saved in a deleted email folder for 48 hours or at least 24.

    have a 48 hours deleted email folder. I had a hacker who got into my stuff and I worry that he may be accessing my email even though I am still accessing it and trying to protect myself. If he is deleting emails, I'd never know
