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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. font color

    The font color is too faint - hard to read. Also, the ads on the sidebar are bigger. Not a fan of that.

  8. pls add the safe feature to see who is sending the message without opening the message

    Passing the mouse over who is sending the message (hotmail, gmail allow us) allow us to see the real hacker name and so, we can send him/her to a report folder also needed if you really want to capture hackers....and .... we do not have to open that message!
    We all would really appreciate that feature.

  14. My reply to Yahoo's reply

    I have seen the following reply on a couple of posts now:

    "Hi there,

    Thank you for your feedback. The option to switch back to the previous version can be found in the dropdown menu on the upper right of the screen. Open the dropdown and select “Go to old version” and click “Go”.

    Thanks,
    Mail Support"

    I don't see a button to allow me to respond. So here is my response in a new post:

    That option isn't on my dropdown menu.

  17. Unread message when there are none

    My yahoo email account says I have several unread messages even though all messages are read. Spam and Trash are empty and all messages in all folders have been read. It's been like this for about a week or two now. How can I fix that?
