Yahoo’s Redesigned Email Is Seriously Broken

Yahoo Mail got a pretty extensive (and familiar looking) redesign last week, but it seems there are some serious problems under that freshly-painted hood. And folks on Yahoo’s bug reporting board sure aren’t happy about it.

As ZDNet reports, some users are seeing addresses disappear from contacts lists or sent messages being erased from folders. There’s uproar over the design features of the new look, too, with users clamouring over the removal of Mail Tabs and sort by sender or subject options. And the Print button is nowhere to be found — Yahoo’s answer for now is to use Command-P.

Any new redesign will have some growing pains, but these problems hobble the basic way email should work, and no amount of logo re-jiggering can cover that up. [ZDnet]
