Yahoo Mail Basic



Basic Mail provides base functionality like reading and writing messages, but does not include many of the advanced options. To use these features, we recommend upgrading to full-featured version of Yahoo Mail.

Tell us how we can improve your Yahoo Mail – Basic experience. The more specific your feedback, the more useful for us. While we can’t respond to every suggestion, we review regularly and take them very seriously. Our Guidelines have more on how you can give great feedback.

The Yahoo product feedback forum now requires a valid Yahoo ID and password to participate.

You are now required to sign-in using your Yahoo email account in order to provide us with feedback and to submit votes and comments to existing ideas. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.


  1. To add to the other complaints, PLEASE actually restore the old email as it was before - what you are restoring now is an incomplete version

    The true "old version" had a verification step before deletions were carried out, for example, among other features now missing from the "old version."

  6. Stop switching my mail to the new format.

    For starters, it is harder to see. Basic is clear, bright and clean. The new format is dark, scrunched. Basic mail format is easier to manage (25 emails at a time) and find things on. The new format reminds me of AOL. or Outlook which I hate (have to use at work). Let us have Basic Mail back

  10. I have two yahoo email addresses....

    I used to be able to hover the mouse over my name, and both my email addresses would display; then I could click on the one, and switch from one to the other. Now I have to sign out, and then go to the sign-in page, choose which address I want, and go from there. Very unhandy!!

    I also do not like having to click "go" after choosing from the "option" menu. I chose that option because I Want to go there!

    You people should be ashamed of yourselves, taking a perfectly satisfactory email system and making it useless and…

  13. Switch Back to Old Version is incomplete. I have to key in complete email address HELP

    It didn't completely switch back to the old version and now I have to key in the complete email address where it would type ahead. I have to scroll through the complete Contact List for each one on my list. Contact list is a pain in the **** to use

  18. None of available email versions allows one to control the text used in the inbox!

    Your web programmers are incompetent. Your newer versions in no way improve features or experience. I need an inbox that makes work flow easier.

  20. I don't care for the new version of Yahoo Mail.

    I like the older version because it was easier to navigate. Using my keyboards arrow buttons to go through the different emails was much easier than having to escape out of the current one and go searching for the next one.
