      I have to agree with Sasafrass452. Despite the great experience, Blake was not the person who made something significant to Yahoo's products and maybe it is the time to bring some new blood.
      Yahoo is transforming itself in a media company, it is not even chanting his old "be social" mantra and from my POV, Blake did not make any difference in Yahoo's stagnation.
       Lets take a look at how obsolete is MyYahoo and Yahoo Notepad, at how long Yahoo Calendar is taking to be integrated with Yahoo Mail and how Flickr is frozen in the same code for years and years.

      Doesn't sound hopeful does it?

      He certainly talked a good game, but with little emphasis ever on Yahoo Mail or developing it as a product. I suspect his resignation is as much a political move as anything (i.e. objected to job cuts). What's more worrying is the staff at yahoo mail. Some may lose their jobs, which is sad for them and probably hampers development on the platform.

      Incidentally, what was the last significant feature update we had? It's all gone very stagnant unfortunately.

      In my mind, sadly, yahoo mail has become a reliable place to store emails and that's it. The development drive to create potential new features and services went long ago. All perfectly adequate, but sadly not exciting. Plus subscription will not be renewed this year (well, until perhaps I get too annoyed with the adverts!)

      " It's unclear how the products group headed by Irving will fit into the company's new framework, which the company has indicated will be based around three main businesses: core media and communications, platforms and data."

      Does anyone care to speculate what that means to YMail?

      I'm having a bad feeling.

      Hmm.... More/better message filters(ie- not in addressbook), more font choices(ie- comic sans), & default text color option. **Sasafrass452**

        I think that's the very reason 2,000 employees were shown the door.... Perhaps with new people on board, we'll see some real improvements.

                http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/04/06/us-yahoo-irving-idUSBRE8350EO20120406 " It's unclear how the products group headed by Irving will fit into the company's new framework, which the company has indicated will be based around three main businesses: core media and communications, platforms and data." Does anyone care to speculate what that means to YMail? I'm having a bad feeling.

                        The last time I tried it out, after you sent the reply you had to go back to the INBOX and *then* you could have the options.  That was the problem for me- I want/need to do it right thereon the confirmation of it being sent page.  So you are saying that has been changed now?
                         
                        Thanks for the heads up!!!!

                          Agree with your sentiment. The wishlist is just that, not a complaint about the current offering. It s still very good, but just not being developed as fast

                            Agree with your sentiment. The wishlist is just that, not a complaint about the current offering. It's still very good, but just not being developed as fast competitors. This is likely to be due to management issues within the company rather than the indivdual competence of the team working on Yahoo Mail.

                            I just switched back to Classic Mail and the difference is amazing. Hated that new mail with the script running errors popping up with so much regularity.

I would wish that they continue with Classic, with some support offered.  The number one option that I need is only available in classic- (I keep looking for a different email that offers it to no avail)  - after replying to an email being able to choose right then what to do with it, ie delete, move to a folder, go to the next message (thus leaving it in the INBOX) etc.

The few times I've contacted customer care I was referred there... So... Just out of curiosity could you mention any support you've recieved? I'm going to switch one of my email addresses to this new mail and see what all the fuss is about. Looked like a cheap version of outlook express to me?

                                    I just switched back to Classic Mail and the difference is amazing. Hated that new mail with the script running errors popping up with so much regularity.

                                    Thanks!

                                    As sad as it may seem.... I would wish that they continue with Classic, with some support offered.  The number one option that I need is only available in classic- (I keep looking for a different email that offers it to no avail)  - after replying to an email being able to choose right then what to do with it, ie delete, move to a folder, go to the next message (thus leaving it in the INBOX) etc.

                                      You need to lower your resolution.
                                      Start Neo and when yahoo tells you there is a resolution problem you need to go to older version and keep it.
                                      When you start ymail in the future need to not upgrade. It will ask you every time you start.

                                          Over the last umpteen year I had a few problems that actually required a "person on the other end" to help.  Most of the time I have no problems, and you are right- I go to the help screen.
                                           
                                          Usually the standard clearing of temp folder/cache/cookies, restart resets everything just fine.  A few times it didn't and thats when I fill out the request form.  Then I get a "canned messgae" that they are experiencing higher than normal requests and someone will get back with me.  After another day or so someone does with a generic copy of everything on the Help pages, and "if this doesn't solve the problem please contact us".... I reply and then a dialog starts between us and the problem gets solved.  Kind of a long run around, but the few times I have needed it, once  I get the "person" the matter was cleared up.
                                           
                                          I can't remember what the last problem was- but it was a long time ago.

                                          Hi..You mention "support".. I've neer really required any support as most the things to be answered are right there in the upper left hand corner under help.. The few times I've contacted customer care I was referred there... So... Just out of curiosity could you mention any support you've recieved? I'm going to switch one of my email addresses to this new mail and see what all the fuss is about. Looked like a cheap version of outlook express to me?

                                            I just switched back to Classic Mail and the difference is amazing. Hated that new mail with the script running errors popping up with so much regularity.

                                            Thanks!

                                            As sad as it may seem.... I would wish that they continue with Classic, with some support offered.  The number one option that I need is only available in classic- (I keep looking for a different email that offers it to no avail)  - after replying to an email being able to choose right then what to do with it, ie delete, move to a folder, go to the next message (thus leaving it in the INBOX) etc.

                                              Over the last umpteen year I had a few problems that actually required a "person on the other end" to help.  Most of the time I have no problems, and you are right- I go to the help screen.
                                               
                                              Usually the standard clearing of temp folder/cache/cookies, restart resets everything just fine.  A few times it didn't and thats when I fill out the request form.  Then I get a "canned messgae" that they are experiencing higher than normal requests and someone will get back with me.  After another day or so someone does with a generic copy of everything on the Help pages, and "if this doesn't solve the problem please contact us".... I reply and then a dialog starts between us and the problem gets solved.  Kind of a long run around, but the few times I have needed it, once  I get the "person" the matter was cleared up.
                                               
                                              I can't remember what the last problem was- but it was a long time ago.

                                              Hi..You mention "support".. I've neer really required any support as most the things to be answered are right there in the upper left hand corner under help.. The few times I've contacted customer care I was referred there... So... Just out of curiosity could you mention any support you've recieved? I'm going to switch one of my email addresses to this new mail and see what all the fuss is about. Looked like a cheap version of outlook express to me?

                                              I am still using Classic.... I HOPE they keep it even if they just keep it up and running with the options they have now.

                                                  As sad as it may seem.... I would wish that they continue with Classic, with some support offered.  The number one option that I need is only available in classic- (I keep looking for a different email that offers it to no avail)  - after replying to an email being able to choose right then what to do with it, ie delete, move to a folder, go to the next message (thus leaving it in the INBOX) etc.

                                                  Would some one care to cite some desireable improvements?
