    This changed my life, seriously. THANK YOU!!!!! I NEVER log in to my yahoo on a desktop, so I’ve been super frustrated with my 18,000 unread emails I see on my iPhone. I feel like someone just did some major fung shui on my life. AMAZING.

    Recently, when selecting the unread messages, you can mark the messages as read or go and read each message and when you select the unread messages, they still show up (you get pages of unread messages by selecting unread even when there are none that are unread).
