Got the following e-mail from Rogers today:

A fresh new design
Customizable features to help keep you organized
Fun animated images, stationary and emojis
For those interested in the new look, see the following link:
So, be aware that when you login to Webmail, you may see something new and don't panic.
Thanks for bringing this to the attention of the Community! =)
I am confident that the new look and feel of the Yahoo Webmail platform will be a big upgrade. We're excited to hear feedback on the changes from all of our users here in the Community.
Let us know what you think once the changes take effect.
So why is the old filter function gone - the new design to help me "better organize my email" but you just made it more difficult for me to do new filters for new folders. It was so much easier just to be in a message and click on the filter function and create a new filter using the message instead now I have to write all the information down in order to add a new filter and hope I didn't type it in wrong?
I switched back to the old format but of course I can only switch back to Basic which is even less useful.
Time to explore other email options I guess.
So I just set up a filter under the New Mail I will know in a week if it works but I noticed another annoying point. Since I couldn't set up the filter inside the email message that I wanted to set up a new filter for, as had been the old and very quick and easy way to do it, I had to go back out of More Settings to get the email address. When I go back to Settings, More Settings does not show up so I had to leave email and come back to get into More Settings so I could get back to the Filters option.
That 'VIEWS' button has been annoying me for days. Can anyone tell me how to cause it to remain hidden? It constantly resurfaces and take up valuable room in that left-most column. As I recall it used to be in a less conspicuous spot under the 'folders' list. Why not make it remain as the user wishes...either showing or hidden? Anyhow...got any suggestions for me?

The settings (the gear near the top right of the screen) should be there? Then the "more settings" is near the bottom of the selections in settings? You may need to click on an e-mail first as I noticed some of the other items in the top banner are missing if you don't click on an e-mail?

Looks like it reappears when you start a new session. Perhaps you can contact them and ask them to make it remember your preferences or to move it to the bottom?
"Smart Views" used to remain minimized. You used to click it to enable it instead of it having a "hide" option. It was above the folders though. One of my e-mail accounts hasn't been switched yet and I just checked.
Okay I played with this some more and figured it out myself I think.
So in the New Mail window, I click on Settings and ...More Settings appears at the bottom of my screen, I click on it and go to the Filter option for example and then I exit out of Settings ie Back to Inbox then I click back on Settings I don't see ...More Settings at the bottom of the screen, no place to click to get to it, however if I click on the Back Arrow at the top left of the screen it brings me to the full list of setting options. So one problem solved. Still do not like the filter feature going backwards in terms of ease of use and doubt that will change.
