  1. View raw message data in spam without having to open the message. How perfectly STUPID of you to remove this function.

    Every time you make an "upgrade", something happens to make this functionality harder to find/use. Now you have made it so that you can't see the sender's actual address unless the email is opened first. How nice of you to ensure that I either get more spam by being unable to block domains sending it, or by making it so that I have sent them the message that their spam was opened before I can block them.
    Why can't you just leave the stuff that actually works ALONE?

  3. Message text rendering poorly

    The text for messages' subjects and previews seems to be image-based, instead of actual text. (Not vector-rendered) It therefore looks unpleasant and blurry-edged at high resolution. Possible solutions could be reverting to displaying message subjects/previews in plain text. (or some other vector-rendered solution)

  5. search by sender doesn't show most recent email

    When I search by sender (using the magnifying glass icon that shows when i hover over sender) the results do not include the most recent email from that sender. When I select the global Checkbox in the titles area it will count that it has selected all the emails even though it's not showing them. E.g. six emails are visible, but selecting the master Checkbox indicated seven are selected.

  9. Filter for Sent messages

  10. Can't delete just one email from a conversation--the whole conversation gets deleted

    It's not possible to delete just one email from a conversation: every time I try to do that, the entire conversation is deleted. Fix it please.

  12. Allow a filter to be added right from an email.

    A function to add a filter right from an email was once available. But now you idiots took it away or hid it so well I can't find it. Now I have to add a filter completely typing in everything. What genius thought that would be a good idea? You guys must be overpaid and feel you have to come up with changes even if they're stupid.

  18. show the reply icon next to the email I just replied to

    Must show the reply icon next to the email I just replied to - why is it showing only for some emails I replied to and not for all?

  19. View

    I don't like that the items on my yahoo.mail homepage are all blurry. When I click on a piece of mail, the particular item is clear and in focus. But it's annoying that the main page items are blurry.

  20. Search results should show folder name

    When I use 'search' the results no longer show which folder the emails are in. This is very annoying when I want to check that all emails on a particular subject have been moved from the Inbox to the correct folder. Also it helps me to check whether I have lost an email into the incorrect folder. All this was possible with the old yahoo emails.
