      One thing that bothers me about the new Yahoo email is that it apears we can only check for new email from the Inbox, which is quite annoying. I looked at the listing of keyboard shortcuts, and it even shows there that the M shortcut "checks for new email and jumps to Inbox." I often want to check for new emails that will be filtered to specific folders that are further down from the Inbox and it wastes time having to scroll back and forth from the Inbox to the specific folder(s).
      Is there any other way to check for new mail that doesn't involve having to go to the Inbox, a separate button/shortcut like there used to be? This was a really stupid change, tying it to the Inbox, when so many people use filters to sort email to other folders. There's plenty of room on the "Compose Message" etc. toolbar to add a "Check for Messages" button.

      Hi there--this was changed in the latest build. To move a message to one of your top folders, type D, then the number. This helps preventing accidental moves (something that's been a longstanding usability problem).

      We've enhanced keyboard navigation in the new Mail and modified a handful of other keyboard shortcuts to improve ease of use--check out the latest by typing ? for the new keyboard shortcuts dialog. Let us know what you think.
