  1. Hello, In Yahoo Classic I was able to refine an e-mail search to sort by folder. How do I do this now that you have stopped Yahoo Classic?

    Hello, In Yahoo Classic I was able to refine an e-mail search to sort by folder. How do I do this now that you have stopped Yahoo Classic? I now cannot successfully search in messages because there is no way to search by folder if I cannot remember which folder it is in an how many years ago I saved it.

  3. move Delete so it does not require scrolling to right

    That is, while you provide a method to return to how it was before

  9. Fix the scripting

    Your scripting issues with the new version will stop users from an experience. A 15 second delay between keystroke and display is unacceptable performance and is due to the overuse of scripting and "neat" graphics that make this now a useless product.
    FIX IT.

  11. All the Ads on the email are Exremely Distracting and Stressful

    We don't need all those photos and Huge Ads in the Emails. Put the Classic Email back. With your new email I will just accumulate more unwanted emails instead of deleting them because it is too difficult and time consuming to get to the subject or anything else. It is not easier, it is more time consuming to wade through all this garbage. Get a clue! People don't want what you are doing and it is extremely frustrating. Please go back to something that is functional. People don't have the time for your silly games and changes.

  12. Headers in Mail take up too much of Screen--Please Fix it, go back to Classic Mail

    The color bar in email is too thick and the bar that gives the options like more for print etc is too thick. All these bars with the address bar and everything else takes up about the top 3 inches of my screen for viewing my email. It is frustrating, time consuming and annoying. It is bad enough you messed with mail in the first place but it shouldn't block the emails so far down on the screen. I don't want to post, I want a fix.

  14. I leave certain things marked unread on purpose. I need this to continue, but the newest version keeps marking it read.

    Do not automatically open mail. I want to open it myself and have the ability to mark it as unread and it remain that way.

  15. Add Yahoo Mail Basic Filter functionality to New Yahoo Mail

    Please restore the option to easily add a filter. After going to settings - Filters - The new Yahoo Mail does not pre-populate the email address and/or subject you are attempting to filter. Making what used to be a simple process, a lengthy process. The filter setting should also be returned to the toolbar where we have Mark as Read, Star, and Block Sender.

  16. The new email buffers forever, has delayed reactions when clicking on a box to delete or read an email. It seems to get slower.

    So stressful to use the new email. I seriously do not like it. Not user friendly, the ads are disruptive at the top of my emails, and it takes forever to load. Why do they keep changing the format? I don't understand.
