  1. Delete without any marked mail is a very BAD IDEA, Deletes ALL MAIL

    I accidently hit delete without any buttons marked.
    And you only put a single note that it would delete ALL MAIL>

    Nobody is paying attention.

    YOU NEED to POST the "ALL MAILS? REALLY?!!" several times to prevent users from not realizing that it REALL deletes all mail.

  2. Please restore the Save Draft buttons, the

    Please restore the Save Draft button.
    You have an OBSCURE 'saved' note at the bottom of a page, which takes an age to show up.
    Also the save notification, (since there is NO BUTTON), is faint, visible only if the Yahoo screen is full screen, which we never do to any web page.
    You have messed up Yahoo mail so so much that we dislike using it for any work.

  3. text mode only Yahoo Mail

    I work with a ssh (secure shell session).
    So I vi editor, emacs editor, lynx web browser and so on.
    Why not a Yahoo Mail interface for all that?
    It would be without the various add-ons and basic, without calls to javascript and such [Hurrah!!!

  6. Delete and block irrelevant mails

    Hi there,
    Previously, it was easier to delete and block unwanted emails. but now since few months this option is no more available and its quite annoying to copy and add thousands of irrelevant emails in to block email id tab via setting option. Pls make it either as easy as it was in previous version or invent way more easy option to block unnecessary /irrelevant/unwanted emails

  11. Emptying Trash

    Hey! Yahoo has managed to create another great annoyance!! Now, when you click the icon to empty your trash, you are greeted with a piece-of-**** "Updating all messages" dialog box with a progress bar!! Who thought of that? Not needed, just empty the trash and tell me it's empty!! No "updating all messages" crockery necessary!!!!

  12. Make voting easier.

    This screen needs a button to sort the list below , showing ideas in rank order.

    That way we could vote on existing ideas without trying to create existing items, (like send only when SEND is clicked.)

  13. Prove I'm not a robot during sign-in

    Hey, what a great idea! Let's the user base off by insisting they prove they're not a robot during the sign-in process! It's already annoying that they have to go through a two-step process, let's make it three!! What a great **** idea!!!

  17. why is there no phone number or live person or even a "contact us" option ??

    This option to report or post a new idea is a farce !! We might as well be
    writing in our "dear diary"

  20. Block email addresses!

    Please reprogram where it says "block email address" . It ALSO should work for phone numbers.
