In the last few days of June reports began of a new format for Fully Featured Digests (YGOG 42494). Some users have reported that they prefer the new format, others have reported problems with it.


As of 7/11 the reported problems have been corrected (YGHC K.I. & FAQ 7/11).







One word per line

Some users report that the first message is formatted normally, but the rest are displayed one word per line (GMF 38591).


Run-on lines

Some users report that messages are displayed without word-wrap, requiring scrolling far to the right.


Excess white space

Some users report that it is difficult to skim messages due to excess spacing (GMF 38529).




Some of the reported problems seem likely to relate to the HTML rendering of the user's webmail service or email client application.

It is unknown whether the inconsistencies in the table relate to unknown details (versions of programs or webmails), observation error, or on-going changes to the Digest coding by Yahoo.
