  1. New Yahoo Mail HORRIBLE! Plus impossible to see which folders have unread email - no bold type on folder!

    I HATE THE NEW YAHOO MAIL. EVERYTHING ABOUT IT STINKS! Folders are not in bold type when they contain unread email, etc. etc.

  2. The new version is so bad you'd think the government was in charge of designing it.

    Drop down list for folders is too short. It requires more key strokes than classic and is visually limiting. The classic system was definitely better than the new version.

  3. Need a wider folder column

    Give me an option to make the folder column wider so I can see my whole folder name. I have several "extra" yahoo addresses that are longer than the column in the new format.

    I would rather have the original format as it was not a problem.

  4. It's God-Awful

    The new version is awful.
    It's difficult to move something to a Folder because the drop down bar keeps closing. I HATE EVERYTHING about the new version.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

    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!!!

  16. 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.

  18. 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!!

  19. 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.
