yahoo mail -- for dinosaurs?

Post by Boinkity_Boink » Fri Sep 08, 2017 10:10 am

Is it my imagination or is the folder management capability of Yahoo Mail vastly inferior that that of GMail?

I've just been trying to clean up an account in Yahoo.
1) I found I can't move folders. I'd like to move the folder "Mike" to be a sub-folder of the folder "Friends".
2) Once you have a folder with sub-folders, you can't change it's name.
3) There doesn't seem to be any folder manager view. In Gmail, you can get all the folders (tags) lined up in front of you, taking up the whole window so you can mess with them. Doesn't seem possible in Yahoo Mail.

Is this all true or am I missing something huge with Yahoo mail? What is the advantage of Yahoo mail over Gmail?

No wonder that company has gone nowhere since 2004. They were one of the first with free email, and the little news articles the pick for you are mildly scintillating, but they haven't been able to leverage that.
