  1. Message area goes blank while reading email

    While reading an email, the message area goes blank and just displays a large envelope instead. This keeps happening and I have to go click on another email and then return to the one I was reading to see it again.

  3. 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

  8. Disappearing top emails

    Please fix the vanishing, invisible, and mis-directed email issues mentioned below! If you can't fix this, please give us the option of getting the old email version back. This one is full of bugs and I am losing messages. Since this is a technical issue way beyond my expertise I don't have a suggestion except FIX IT. Otherwise I'll have to switch to gmail.

  9. The first message in my listing is hidden.

    I have to open the second e-mail and use the navigation arrow to go to the previous message. When I first open the e-mail page, I can briefly see the NEW message at the top. But it disappears before I can click on it.

  10. Can't Preview Attachments

    I've seen many posts for this, but Yahoo doesn't seem to be doing anything to correct the problem. In the new mail, attachments aren't being previewed correctly. It either doesn't preview at all, or it shows a partial preview. This works great with the old email and it's why I will keep switching back until Yahoo can fix this.

  12. 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.

  17. I don't like this version of Yahoo mail; pale gray color of text hard to read for those eyeglass users or older people.

    Use a darker "ink" color for texts so people with decreased vision can read without strain. No biggy!

  18. Search function does not work correctly.

    How can you improve New Mail - You could start by fixing this ****** feedback page, it's very poorly done. Also, the search function is ****. When I search All Mail I don't get results from All Mail (or we have differing ideas about what the word 'all' means...) I got no results from the Trash folder, so clearly not All Mail was searched. I got results from the Trash folder only if I specifically searched the Trash folder. So I would recommend changing the category to All Folders, and then make it work. Just a thought.

  19. Glitches, composing emails it difficult because the program keeps glitching and jumping back up to the top of the page!

    Glitches, composing emails it difficult because the program keeps glitching and jumping back up to the top of the page while I am writing! It makes writing and editing nearly impossible. I don't use my email much anymore because it's a mess, I would like the old classic program back if you can't get this one to work right soon. It's been like this ever sense I up graded to the new program version.
