  1. search in directory

    Hi,
    Search filtered by directory does not work.
    After choosen a directory in filters and cliking on the search icon, "right" search results seems to be displayed it quicky disappear to let display "wrong" results that looks like the most recent messages.
    It's running like not any filter on directory is applied...

  4. Spam Folder Message Number

    The old Yahoo Mail showed the number of messages in Spam Folder, convenient as a notification so I could go into the Spam Folder and determine if they were indeed Spam or something I wanted to read.

  5. Email filter settings no longer exists

    There should be a setting for email filters. The new layout has none. This should be extremely easy to setup, yet YAHOO continues to make simple tasks difficult to compete. Here's and idea. MAKE USER FRIENDLY email layout that makes it EASY and QUICK to do simple tasks.

  7. Seriously, how many messages in my Spam box?

    Hi Yahoo! Everything is OK with your new e-mail. But, why it can't show how many messages in a Spam box?

  8. width of folder panel

    Make the width of the left side panel adjustable (the panel that shows the list of folders) so that the user can make it wider or narrower as desired using the mouse. Right now I need it wider to be able to see the full names of my folders.

  9. spam

    I have had email in my spam folder, but was unaware because it used to show how many were in there. Now it does not show a number. Was lucky I checked too!

  10. Pourquoi ne voit-on plus le nombre de Spams dans le dossier Spams ?

    Pourquoi ne voit-on plus le nombre de Spams dans le dossier Spams ? Si vous arrivez à nous afficher le nombre de mails non lus dans la boite de réception, pourquoi ne pas le faire dans les autres dossiers ?

  11. Implementing better spam filters! At the moment spam filter is a joke. I am using a business account and there's no extra security or option

    Please upgrade the Yahoo! mail's spam filter, or the total filter option if possible. Compared to Gmail or other mails the security is not impressive - even for the paid mail ids. Please look into this.

  12. Switching Between Folders

    I can't open an existing folder to access those e-mails without refreshing the page. This has happened repeatedly.

  14. VIEW FOLDER

    View Folder - HUGE PRIVACY ISSUE

    We need the ability to either delete or hide a photo from that section!

    I have some very private photos in there. I am very careful with where I store the ones I keep. Hiding it is NOT good enough (too easy to open) and there is a loss of control as to how our private, adult photos are located. I actually would like to use this new feature but you MUST give us the ability to choose which photos don't appear there.

  15. Keep losing important emails through spam

    The method Yahoo has developed to filter emails through spam is not effective. My new job has been put on hold because I lost a vital vetting/health form that was hidden in my spam folder. It was from a legitimate email address. Would be useful to have a more accessible spam setting page.

  18. Make Views able to be and stay hidden

    Please allow Views to stay minimized or better yet, allow it to be moved to bottom of our folders we've created. Views is never used, ever, and it's a nuisance placed where it is.

  19. Folders in the Left Margin/Column

    Allow the user to "expand or enlarge" the left column where the folders are. You can not even "read" the folders well now.
