      If you're using the current version of Yahoo! Mail and it's set to the Full Featured option, then just click on any of the emails that appear in your inbox.  The view will then change to display that email.  If you look up near the top of the window, you'll see that your email has a tab.  You're looking at that email via the tab but other tabs are still available such as Calendar, Contacts, and Inbox.  You can click on Inbox again and select another email to view.

      Still, while you haven't really left your inbox while you're viewing an email, you can't view the contents of both tabs at once.  The best you can do is set to view emails using a preview pane.  Then you see the inbox plus the currently selected email at the same time.

      How does one open tabs in the new mail? More importantly, can you open an email in a new tab without leaving your inbox?

      It's not a design flaw.  Rather it's a design decision that allows users to have more than one email open at a time. 

      So clicking on Inbox only means that you want to see your Inbox.  Potentially someone might want to open an additional email for some reason, perhaps to compare with the first email.  Whatever emails you open from the inbox are opened and available in separate tabs.  To close an email, mouse over the tab for that email and click the little x.

      Note that if you're viewing an email and select to view the next or previous email via the up or down arrows, only the currently viewed email remains open.  The others are closed.  Separate tabs for each opened email is only accomplished by selecting the email from the inbox.

      Thank you. I am trying the fully-featured version of the Yahoo Mail now.  I have run into something that I am not sure what's causing it. I've attached a screen shot of what I'm seeing. 
       
      After I read a message, I return to the inbox by clicking on the inbox tab or the link on the left hand side which also says inbox.  But, it appears that each message that I read isn't being closed when I return to the inbox.  Why is that?  I checked my inbox on outlook.com and notice that the messages close whether I click Inbox on the left, or the little X on the  upper corner of the message. 
       
      As far as I can tell, if I return to the inbox, it means that I am either done reading the message or I am choosing to come back at a later  time.  I don't need to have a tab for the message.  I think this is a design flaw.  Or, there's something in the options that I don't have set  right.

      So far, the fully-featured is okay; but, it has some really strange things that don't make sense.  If I can figure out the best way to use what  I have to work with, I will stay with it; but, basic  is okay as well and certainly didn't seem full of bugs.
