  1. spam folder count

    Please put back in the design a count for the Spam folder. There should not be a need to go and check if new items are in the folder. Return the prior functionality.

  2. The new email format does not display new folder emails in the top tab as the old format did plus I don't get notified of spam mail either.

    The new email format does not display new folder emails in the top tab as the old format did plus I don't get notified of spam mail either. I prefer the old format.

  3. too much scrolling to Move folders

    The classic version remembered where I had scrolled to in the Move section. Now when I move an email, it starts me right at the top each time and I have to to scroll all the way to the correct folder each time.

  5. layout

    In the new layout, provide more horizontal space for the folders on the left side of the page. Either provide more space or allow the user to pick a smaller font to get more of the folder name to be seen. The names of the folders are too concatenated. Let the user have a handle on the vertical line separating the folder section and the message section to increase horizontal space for the folder section.

  6. Contacts hard to find

    Why oh why do you hide the contacts behind a tiny grayed icon sitting way over on the right, over your crummy intrusive advertising that we have to shield our eyes from to focus on using email? Contacts are a main feature of any email system, there should be a prominent, clear, front & center icon or folder for getting to them. I really wonder about the competence and common sense of Yahoo Mail developers/designers. It is really one of the worst, ad-laden atrocities on the internet. If I could move my email name to another provider, I would. But…

  7. I have to go into 'SPAM' to see if I have any there. No more numbers listed by box. Instead of improving, you've made it worse.

  8. STOP AUTO MOVING MY E**ING EMAILS TO ARCHIVE!!!

    I DO NOT WANT YOU AUTO ARCHIVING ANY EMAILS!!! NOT ANY!! NOT ONE!!! And you do it so randomly, not for weeks then suddenly in one days 10 of them OFTEN WHILE I AM READING IT!!! No one can help when I contact the help on Twitter. I DO NOT HAVE ANY FILTERS FOR THIS. I AM NOT USING ANY CLIENT BUT THE WEB AND MOBILE APP. It caused me to miss potential client work and other emails because sometimes you do it BEFORE I HAVE EVEN READ IT!

  10. As a 22 year yahoo user, I can't understand why you guys keep trying to fix something that is not broken.

    Don't force people to change to things they don't want. That is one sure fire way to lose customers.

  12. Stop sending conservative-based email to SPAM that I didnt designate there!!

    Yahoo continues with feverish determination to send emails that are conservative-based to my SPAM, even from whitehouse.gov !!! Daily Caller, the resurgent, Tea Party are all valid emails I want to receive, but Yahoo continues to redirect them to SPAM. Stop it please!! #Censorship and #Suppression arent American values!!

  13. Restore the "move" function in order to organize folders

    I am trying to better organize my folders and would like to be able to move a top-level folder to become a subfolder under another top-level folder. Classic offered this function, the latest version does not. Please restore this option.

    I use folders / sorting extensively. I need the notifications for ALL of them, not just for the inbox. I also would like the TOTAL unread emails on the tab as before, not just for the inbox.

  20. The new Yahoo Mail can't remember where I move e-mails

    The old Yahoo Mail was SMART ... I always move e-mails from my inbox to a folder I call "Saved Messages" ... so the old Yahoo Mail would always place my "Saved Messages" folder at the top of the list of choices when I click the "Move" button ... but the "new" Yahoo Mail isn't smart at all ... Now when I go to move an e-mail, it no longer puts my "Saved Messages" folder up at the top ... I have to go and look for it ... Thanks for removing really cool functionality! Sigh ...
