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.

  3. bring back classic mail

    Please change back to the classic Yahoo Mail! There are certain features that I can't do on the current version that I could do in the old classic mail version, such as dragging an email to a folder. How am I now able to do that?! I am frequently dragging things to folders, and it is imperative that I have this feature re-instated.

  7. 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.

  10. I want to switch back to yahoo basic mail from Full Featured ( not classic mail which has been discontinued)

    I understand yahoo mail classic has been discontinued. I see yahoo mail basic and full featured now. I clicked the full featured mail. As my computer is slow I want to switch back to basic mail. Remember I want to switch to basic mail not classic. But I don't see the switch to basic mail option button under setting near the feedback button.

  11. It's ugly and the select all does not work.

    I click select all, it flashes complete on the left side but nothing is selected. It looks like a FisherPrice child version of email. Maybe it is a kid's toy and that why it is not functional.

  15. Very slow and bad interface

    Please send back me to the older version of the yahoo, this version is very poor, it is very slow, every process has more steps and how one can make a simple process difficult. Yahoo have complicated the things in the mail

  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.
