New Mail Basic

Welcome to our Yahoo Basic Mail feedback forum! This is a place for you to help shape the new Yahoo Basic Mail experience. We review the most popular, feasible ideas from this forum to make positive changes to your Yahoo Mail.

  2. LET PEOPLE KEEP THEIR CLASSIC YAHOO MAIL IF THEY WANT, YOUR FORCING THIS **** CHANGE ON THEM SUCKS

    What is your problem, Yahoo? Forcing this unwanted, non-functional **** product down people's throats? Classic Yahoo Mail worked FINE. You know what they say: If It Ain't Broke Don't Fix It Thus Forcing Your Stock To Go Down Along Wth Your Reputation And Your Standing In The Industry. GIVE US A CHOICE. And hey "Administrator" who keeps repLying to folks by saying "there's a drop-down menu", well there isn't. I have a few Yahoo accounts, and sometimes there is and you can reverse the unsolicited, unrequested mutation of a perfectly fine email page into an unworkable mess, and sometimes there…

  4. I want my old email back

    I clicked "leave feedback." WHY does it bring me to this hidden, seemingly forum like post where I'm sure yahoo NEVER LOOKS?
    I have three accounts on yahoo. But only ONE got switched to this newer version. I HATE IT!!!!!!!
    Spam folder never shows anything in it. I actually look because real mail lands there all the time.
    There are other issues too, just leave email SIMPLE will ya? Stop screwing around with it.

    Bring back the ORIGINAL MAIL - it did everytrhing right before. You changed it without my permission.

    Bring back the ORIGINAL MAIL - it did everything right, Today I cannot delete, move to spam or forward. I cannot change font sizes. HOW STUPID. What the **** is going on. Return it to the way it originally was or I won't use any Yahoo services again, and give them a bad name all over the net, and tell my friends about it.

  12. This new design is broken and does not show me all of my mail.

    For the past week, every time I clicked to use the old version, new mails would show up. Now that button is gone, and every time I open Yahoo it says there are new mails, but there is no new mail in my boxes. Thank you so much for breaking things so that I can not access my mail. It's wonderful, considering most of my tax documents are electronic and associated with this email.

  16. Changing of "CLASSIC MAIL" making it nearly the "NEWEST YAHOO MAIL" which we did not like, BRING THE OLD CLASSIC MAIL BACK!!!!!

    Changing of "CLASSIC MAIL" making it nearly the "NEWEST YAHOO MAIL" is disappointing as we had chosen not to use the newest yahoo mail, did not like it and were very happy with the classic mail. Very unhappy with today's changed to the classic mail - BRING THE OLD CLASSIC MAIL BACK!!!!!

  17. Give us back the old version

    by giving the old one back - this one works only when it wants too! I select a bunch to delete and it takes several times before it actually works. very frustrating!!!

  20. An improvement would be to go back one update.

    An improvement would be to go back one update. Then when you get that irresistible urge to make another "improvement" go back one more step from there.
    You've improved it so much I can't read it. Light blue on medium blue on gray on slightly darker blue. Nice.
