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.

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.

Here are some guidelines for using this forum:

  1. Please search and vote before posting! If your idea (or an idea very similar to yours) has already been posted, please vote for it. Duplicated ideas may be moved.

  1. Give me back my old email!

    Whatever you did, I no longer have ANY contacts, I have to double authenticate twice, cannot hold more than one email box open at a time, filing is now far too many clicks. You DIDN'T Improve anything! changing things because you're bored or just to see if we notice is a crock of ****!

  4. Can I change back to the old format? This design is not only childish, but less user friendly than the classic email interface.

    Why did Yahoo have to mess up a good thing. Stop letting recent college grads run the redesign and user interface.

  8. Worst UI and Interface I've ever seen.

    Yahoo mail UI and Interface design is the worst interface ive ever seen. Your developers should be ashamed of their professional quality. This UI looks like school boys made this UI. Poor Quality & Poor UI. Yahoo should put them into garbage.

  9. Fix AutoFill

    Adding CONTACTS - Populates the AUTOFILL feature. However UPDATING CONTACTS - does NOT UPDATE the Autofill feature - Resulting in MULTIPLE AUTOFILL entries - ONE OF WHICH is INCORRECT.

  12. You upgraded my mail without asking and this new Yahoo Mail Basic is horrible. Search is downgraded. Navigating the app is timeconsuming.

    This "upgrade" definitely took about 1000 steps backwards. Every aspect of "New Yahoo Mail Basic" is far more difficult to navigate than the prior version. I'll be switching my accounts to gmail.

  13. Multiple email search.

    Bring back the "search all emails from same sender" - the eye-glass icon. I found this very useful in deleting multiple unwanted emails in a couple of clicks. For me, this facility put Yahoo far above the rest.

  18. Do not allow the computer to change lettering in the contacts when saving

    I added a friend to my contact list. I need to capitalize the T in her name, however I can't save it that way, the system keeps changing it to a small t and then it adds the old email address when I put in the new when I compose, so it comes back as not being able to be sent. I even switched back to the basic because the send button was not showing on the screen. MAJOR frustration! It was working fine the other day. What happened?????

  19. Please make it easier to reset password

    The security required is way too strong. Yes, i'm aware of security but the password strength requirements drove me up the wall.
