Re: [Y-Mail] Re: New "Smart Folders"
- In Blake Irving's presentation we can see in "Extras" some good ideas to Smart Folders: Photos (that well implemented can compensate the lack of MyPhotos) and attachments. Both features are still presente in Yahoo Mail Classic for quite some time.It is a good idea to implement the option to disable/enable the features.

yep, you may well be right.
Also, it's not working well at the moment, in that it doesn't count the number of undread emails from contacts until you actually open the folder. I'm sure that's a small bug that'll be fixed, but it's still likely to be a "beta" feature at present

The "Smart folders" idea wasn't new. It has been in use on the Yahoo's mobile platforms for quite some time. The three "folders" are Email from Contacts, Photos, and Files. No customization nor settings is available. I'm afraid that those predefined filters may be all there is to it.
