New Mail Basic

  2. An improvement would be to go back one update.

    An improvement would be to go back one update. Then when you get that irresistible urge to make another "improvement" go back one more step from there.
    You've improved it so much I can't read it. Light blue on medium blue on gray on slightly darker blue. Nice.

  10. Stop forcing me to get a verification number from my phone every time I want to log in

    You have a week, then it's Gmail or Hotmail. Get a grip and start listening to your customers

  14. After marking mails as Not Spam, all my 860 important mails disappeared from my inbox.This seems issue with yahoomail.Plz check it

    It’s a feedback.
    Accidentally I clicked on Spam button and marked all my inbox emails as spam.so I was checking and moving them and moving them to my existing folders but suddenly appeared pop-up message displaying "Do you want to mark all 860 emails as Not Spam" and when I clicked Ok/Yes option (not sure which one was displaying) all my 860 mails disappeared and not found in any of my folders in yahoo account. This looks like issue with yahoo mail account as many have posted the similar issue online but I didn't find any solution to get back…

  18. User control of ad variables;e.g. flashing ads, workspace area

    The 'ad' space uses more screen that is necessary. Allow the user to dictate 'ad space' requirements. of better yet, a widget button thats
    allows acknowledgement , click then removes ad to increase work space. Flashing ads are very distracting- again, a widget or button to control or quiet down visual noise. I fully understand that ads pay for service. However, distracting ads drive away users.

  19. forward

    I note that I have to use the OLD email if I need to check/review my setting of forwarding ALL my emails to another place (one that sends me as SMS to come read the email) but there is no way to find that setting in your shiny new interface - I'm worried that the old system will be removed an I will be stuck unable to turn off or alter the forwarding account details. Please add the setting to the new interface.
