I am satisfied with Yahoo' Mail's basic setup. It could be a little more efficient if the Mail folder appeared at the top of the list instead of having to look for it in a list of applications I never use and have found no way to delete.
The biggest drawback to Yahoo! Mail is that when it came pre-installed on my new computer, I tried to blacklist some very nasty spam and got the message my Blacklist was full. (I had yet to blacklist anything!) If it comes with the blacklist already filled, what's the point?
Now I cannot view video links within mails. I solve this by using a different server for videos. From the first, I have gotten the ubiquitous "you do not have an Adobe plug-in" on Yahoo! Mail. That point is discouraging, but perhaps one of their geeks has the answer somewhere or it may be corrected in a version yet to come.
Passwords should be changed periodically, yet I find Yahoo! mail would not save my new address, forcing me to look it up each time.
A good point is that they still use subfolders, which GMX and a few others do not. It makes the list shorter and keeps scrolling to a minimum, an appreciated factor. Colored subfolders would be even more helpful. Now if there were only a way to find one folder instantly by use of a shortcut (ie: Folder+ B to open only the folders beginning with B instead of a long scroll,....?
It would be so useful in calling up old e-mail files and help prevent mis-filing a mail etc.
.....cut and paste would be a nice addition, since people constantly revise mails, but perhaps it already exists and is just not on my Acer.
If you do not mind these little inconveniences, I would (and do) recommended Yahoo' mail. If you're busy, it can be a hassle but for everyday basic communication, it'll get the job done.
