  2. 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.

  3. Expand the width of "left side bar".

    To better see the 'Folder Names' please expand the width of "left side bar" to show few more characters.

  4. Organizing folders

    What happened to the ability to reorganize my folders, moving subfolders from one place to another? Now I have to create a new folder and manually move all the emails, then delete the old folder - this is somebody's idea of an upgrade???

  5. 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.

  6. Views and Folders

    I hate that you can't permanently hide "views". I don't need any of that ****, & it bumps my personal folders that I *DO* use out of sight.

  7. search spam

    Good emails sometimes are put in the SPAM folder. To find them we need to be able to SEARCH the SPAM folder.

  8. Filter

    New change doesn't allow me to create a filter from inbox. I usually highlight the emails & create a filter to move them to a folder. This way future emails don't appear. When I check the emails it only gives me the option to move them.

  9. 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.

  10. 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"

  11. Spam

    Please identify the number of messages in the Spam folder, like on the older platform. It's a pain to have to keep checking the Spam folder to see if there's anything in there.

  14. spam

    Typically spam folders show the number of messages in that folder, but the new system doesn't do that. I have to go into the folder to see if I need to clear it out. Perhaps go back to the past functionality where the number of emails in the folder are shown.

  15. Spacing between Folders and Views

    Make spacing between folders and views responsive to the Small, Medium, and Large options already available for Inbox Spacing.

    As it is now, can only see 3 folders without scrolling - and 0 folders if Hide and Less are not selected for Views.

  16. Folders

    Move the stupid leave feedback box!! This is is front of the folders section that I use all the time and is so annoying!!

    The folders that show up under the "view" area are in the way. You hide the view area only to have it come right back in the expanded version and have to hide it again. Fix it please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
