  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Contrary to the old version, there's no right-to-left language support. Neither by automatic detection nor by clicking a button manually.

    Contrary to the old version, there's no right-to-left language support (e.g. Hebrew, Arabic, etc.). Composing a message in a right-to-left language cannot be done - neither by automatic detection nor by clicking a button manually.

  5. can't find a way to delete an auto-suggest entry when entering in the To: field. The suggestions are NOT any of my saved contacts.

    Allow an intuitive way to remove old auto-suggest entries when entering email addresses, especially those that are not in any contacts lists.

  7. First day using the new mail and none of my e-mail messages load!

    My idea is that you allow users to default back to the old system, which works.

  11. have a forward and back switch on the pictures without having to click on the preview button to go to the next pic.

    Like the nice airy feel and better colour in the new version, but not a fan of not being able to go to the next picture in a series of pictures without having to go back to the preview panes.

    We apologize our first response was for a different issue. Are you just missing the letters in the list view or when you click to open the message?

    If it is when the message is open, did you try hiding the ad panel on the right?

    Please see this help page for instruction on hiding the ads on the right temporarily:

  18. number next to spam

    The numbers that used to tell us how many messages were in Spam and Trash, no longer appear. Bring them back. Better yet, keep the old version of yahoo mail. The new one is tedious and unfriendly.

  19. Reduce Blue Header

    Is there a way to reduce the size of the top blue (2-tone) header? It takes up way too much screen in order to view the actual emails. The search feature, user settings and "Home" button could all be reduced in size...

  20. 1/3 of the screen is blank dead space!

    Naturally I used two ad-blockers. And that leaves the right 1/3 of the screen completely blank, BUT I have to pay you $4 to be able to push that area aside!?!
