  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. Set filters directly from the Inbox

    Without the ability to set filters directly from the Inbox, Yahoo Mail is unusable.

    Yahoo blew me off with its last response. I know one can go to settings--that is time wasting with the number of e-mail lists I receive.

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

    I am having great difficulty attaching documents to the new email format. I work for a university and it is imperative that I can send my students documents. Why is this new version of email so frustrating, confusing, and difficult to use. Why do have to change the format???

  6. Not able to return home without opening a new tab.

    Why is there an option on the Yahoo! homepage to go to mail, but not an option from mail to return to the homepage? Yes, there is a button to click to go home, but it opens in a new tab. This is ridiculous.
    I want the old mail back, or I will be switching to Google. Fix this.

  8. Adjust width of folders column

    Add a way to adjust the width of the folders column on the main email page. This could be a setting, or it could be a simple mouse move similar to setting column widths in Excel.

  10. Several new ideas and the new version is BAD.

    First, I agree with many of the other suggestions that the previous version of Yahoo Mail which you call “Classic” was much better on the eyes and functions.

    New Item: the column with “COMPOSE” at the top should be adjustable in width because there isn’t enough room to show the names of the Folders
    New Item: When sending emails out to a personal distribution list, you should have a “Select All” button.
    Final Item: I could not find any way to refresh the “IN” box in order to see if any new emails had arrived. Under “Inbox” you have 2…

  11. Very small font. Any other pages of web are normal. It's ridiculous to change font every time I access e-mail!

  15. THIS NEW VERSION IS HURTING MY EYES!!!

    THIS NEW VERSION IS HURTING MY EYES. It's blindingly white, it's too small to read, there are NO distinguishable lines separating the e-mails, and the formatting is just horrible for people who are even older than I am. WTF were you thinking, YAHOO?!?

  18. select all by a particular sender... in order to efficiently delete loads of emails

    From the "Select messages" drop-down arrow, allow the choice of entering a specific email address. This would select all emails from this email address allowing the user to delete and efficiently clean house on spam or senders that are no longer useful.
