  7. change color of text

    I cannot find any option to change the color of text in Yahoo mail. I have "high contrast black" as my Windows color scheme due to some vision loss. The text color in Yahoo mail is a basic blue and extremely hard to read. HELP!

  8. contacts

    major issues with the new Contacts (since the update where Contacts appear only in the margin):
    - multiple entries under the same name
    - unable to add new contacts to preexisting and new lists
    - notes not showing
    - categories for phone numbers and email addresses (Home/Work/Other, for example) for all contacts prior to the "margin update" are no longer categorized, and are now generically relabeled as just "Phone" or "Email"

    PLEASE RESTORE ALL THESE DATA! And, as everyone else has been saying, the best case scenario is to bring Contacts back to the version prior to the "margin update."

  9. More color options for themes....

    The colors for the themes are very limited. It would nice to be able to pick the color you want from a color chart or just have more options to choose from such as hot pink, neon colors, brighter more vibrant colors. The option to do them solid or multi-colored would be nice as well.

    Over the last couple of years, yahoo mail has become agonizingly slow. I can open yahoo mailt through Microsoft Mail and it's fast. Same mail box, No comparison on performance. It's definitely a yahoo mail issue.

  11. Needed feature missing from Yahoo

    The help menu tells me that I can add a contact to a list if I just select the list and then choose Edit to add the contact e-mail address to that list. How about adding said Edit feature so this can be done?

  12. suggested contact is not in my contact list

    I get contact suggestions that are from errors I typed in and sent a message to and I do not see how to remove the erroneous contact.
    This could be embarassing to me and perhaps to Yahoo if it went to undesirable connections. These are not the days to get linked to racist or terrorist, etc individuals by making typing errors.

  13. filter rules

    FILTER RULES
    Given that most of us receive more and more email messages, a key feature of an email service to me is whether it supports filter rules. Yahoo Mail needs to configure rules based on at least sender address or subject, then disposition them (delete or put into a folder). This should apply to the web UI first and foremost, and if so the mobile app would automatically benefit from it. For comparison, see Outlook or GMail rules.

  16. SORT for Sent email box.

    When I am in Yahoo Mail > Sent and want to rearrange my outgoing emails, I click on Sort. One of the choices USED to be, Recipient. However, that choice has been replaced with Sender. Well, I'm always the Sender of MY sent emails. Please return the choice of, Recipient.

    I think it's really ballsy you forced us to update to your new email and now we have to deal with your stupid video and pop up ads. It is harassment and absolutely disgusting you are doing this. READ THE COMMENTS AND EVERYONE IS COMPLAINING ABOUT THIS! DO YOU NOT CARE ABOUT CUSTOMER HAPPINESS? I GUESS NOT. WORST SERVICE EVER

  18. Algorithm deletes many emails to Trash before I can see in Inbox

    For the last 6 months, many emails are deleted from my Inbox and end up in Trash. So I've now begun leaving open on Trash so I can see what has been sent to me since last visit. I restore them to Inbox to look at in Inbox, however, many are sent to Trash again before I can read them. Not all messages but at least 1/3 of messages from specific senders. Fix this Please. Let me delete emails not automatic by your algorithm.
