  1. sort

    Quit changing the sort order of mail back to newest first. I have it as oldest first for a reason. You can easily change the default to whatever I select instead of only using that temporarily. I'm a retired software engineer - do you need me to do it for you?

  3. Name changes don't stick

    I received this email after taking over for a parents group at my kids school. Even though I've changed the settings to reflect MY name everywhere I can find the previous president's name still pops up about half the time. This causes confusion as she is still working with some of the same people at a different school, so I get her emails instead of her getting her emails.

  6. Stop trying to give me suggestions in my inbox... I don't want it.

    Stop with the intrusive bullsh!t and just let folks use Yahoo MAIL as a freakin' MAILBOX. If I wanted all that other ****, I'd opt in.

  7. why do email windows close suddenly?

    When I leave an email open to read for a while (approximately a minute) it automatically closes. Very annoying. It happens in safari, firefox and on my iphone. How can I stop this?

  11. Remember the choice if I turn off "automatically generate preview of links"

    No matter how many times I turn off "automatically generate preview of links" Yahoo Mail does not remember my setting if I leave and come back.

  15. Contact Lists in Newest Mail

    Most of my contacts are in triplicate. They need to be condensed into 1 contact so that it's easier to refer to and follow up with.

  17. Let us choose how many emails to delete

    I have 3 yahoo accounts and all of them delete a different number of emails when I click the box above all of the boxes. It used to be I could choose how many. But now one deletes 25, the others 60 and 100. Give me back the choice of what my standard number is. The new mail is awful

  19. I hate the constant requirement to update my Mac Mail password and this time it won't even recognize the code. I will canel Yahoo!

    Get rid of constant password security updates that you generate. It won't work on my Mac Mail and I can't get my mail.
