  3. spam filter

    Really getting tired of the spam filter moving the emails I have marked as not spam (on more than one occasion) into the spam folder. no matter what I do, they appear there again. All the senders' emails are in my contacts. what is happening?

  4. why are the folders to the left of mail box disappear?

    Upon opening Yahoo mail the folders to the left of the mail box might appear for a flash and then totally disappear. WHY? Sometime they just might stay on for a while before disappearing. This is a real pain and needs to be fixed. I can't see things like deleted, my things, etc.

  7. 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!!

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
