  4. Hate the contact list. It doesn't show up as one. No idea how many names on a contact list. Phone number on one line, email on another .

    Please go back to listing contact list showing each contact whole instead of breaking it up so you can't see as one. Horrible the way it is. Enough that I am thinking of changing away from yahoo. I use a lot of lists and need to be able to quickly look to see info on an individual on any given list.

  5. GIVE ME BACK THE OLD WAY YOU DID ADDING CONTACTS. I HATE THE WAY IT IS NOW.

    MY IDEA IS, GIVE ME BACK THE OLD WAY WE DID SETTING UP NEW CONTACTS AND BEING ABLE TO REVIEW AND MAKE ADJUSTMENTS. I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE WAY YOU HAVE DONE THIS. THERE WERE NO INSTRUCTIONS.

  7. Sender column is missing. Can't see who sent email!

  8. Why am I seeing phone numbers? What happened to alphbetical order listing?

    Make contacts list alphabetical order by last name. Get rid of the fancy unnecessary eye work. Why everyone's phone number? I have only three contacts by phone number. Save your money to work on something useful.

  9. Fix contacts

    You have completely ruined the contacts / address book functionality of Yahoo Mail. I am unable to locate contacts that I am 100% certain are/were in my address book. Improvements are supposed to make the functionality MORE efficient. You have not made the this latest version of Yahoo Mail more efficient, but you have made it inefficient.

    I waste a tremendous amount of time looking for my contacts now and I don't appreciate it. I am sure that I am NOT the only person that feels this way.

    Stop ruining Yahoo mail and Yahoo mail functions.

  10. Advertisements -- Should not look like unopened email or interspersed with email messages!

    Please do not make advertisements look like unread mail, and do not put them in the middle of my string of emails. Very annoying, and it is the reason I did not switch to the new version of Yahoo long ago. As much of a pain as it will be to change, I will switch my email from yahoo to Gmail if I continue to have to see ads that look like unread email as I scroll through my email list!!!

  12. Emails are being sent to Spam no matter how many times I tell it it is not spam and list the sender and approved.

    Something is obviously wrong with programming of Spam. This started about a month or so ago. Emails I have marked as not spam are sent to the Inbox but about 1-3 minutes later are all sent back to the Spam folder even when I am in the middle of reading it. Addresses are added as approved but this doesn't help.

  14. Please stop grouping email by day.

    Please stop grouping my email by day. It takes up too much display space. I want a nice long list of my emails sorted by the date and time they arrived.

  18. highlighted email

    I noticed today, that the email that I just responded to is not highlighted when it closes and goes back to the email list. I usually see whatever email I just responded to, or forwarded, as still highlighted in the email list and just click move to send it to a folder....but now there is nothing highlighted and I can still click move and choose a folder but have no idea what email, if any, is being moved. Is this something that can be fixed please?

  19. Ads make the page zoom in and out random

    I have had to install adblockers on your site against my better judgement (knowing you make revenue from them, and even support this line of income) because your ads mess up the screen, randomly zooming it in and out and making me click things by accident. This makes your mail almost unusable for me. The problem is that at your most recent update, the adblockers block the ads but not the zooming effect. So now I am blocking your ads, which I don't want to do, and it's not even having the effect that I want. Please fix this issue.…

  20. Fix the LINE SPACING PROBLEM

    If one designs, creates, text using a WORD PROCESSOR like "WORD", SINGLE SPACING, copy to YAHOO EMAIL, IT creates a TRIPLE SPACING text despite the SINGLE SPACING in "WORD". Yahoo appears to NOT HAVE LINE SPACING OPTION.
