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.

  2. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Put back the 'old' Basic Mail -- you've screwed up most everything with your silly change; "Sent" doesn't give TO WHOM it's sent.

  8. Bring back the CORRECT original Yahoo Mail!

    So, I'm confused because it keeps saying, "Go back to classic view" but classic view isn't even the same, WHAT IS THAT ABOUT!?? Please just put it back and don't fix something that isn't broken. Yahoo has been FINE with the original classic view and doesn't need ANY altering. PLEASE AND THANK YOU! The new version is horrible. it's small, hard to read, and just isn't appealing. And if you guys are trying to get over on us by calling this "classic" view, it is not. I want the ORIGINAL classic view please and thank you!!

  10. Blue on Blue on Blue is stupid and illegible.

    I can't see all my e-mail anymore.
    Your colors are idiotic for the 8th time in a row.
    QUIT MAKING THESE CUTESY updates and leave it alone.

    What business problem are your trying to fix ???? except the ones you are creating.

  11. If it's not broken DO NOT FIX IT!!!!!

    Yahoo PLEASE LEAVE MY EMAIL ALONE!!!!
    I do NOT need the page layout changed, I do not need stupid purple color boxes, JUST LEAVE IT ALONE! All I want to do is check my mail.
    NOTHING ELSE.

    So now after clicking "leave feedback" this will go nowhere on a public board that yahoo will likely never even read. SWELL.

  12. Respect and Democracy for the user

    We all know that yahoo is a free service but in case the company is intersted in preserving such service you have to get back to Democratic procedures.The colors and lines are so faint there are almost invisibe, fonts are awful and colors make you dizzy. Bring back the standard mail and leave any other option as "optional". Why dont you act as normal software developers who create some themes when they are in the mood and leave to the user to select one. The classic theme in a software is something that means a lot to the user so…

  16. font color

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

  18. Go Back to the old/prior format for classic Mail...this new version sucks!! It was just fine the way it was...leave it alone!!

    Appears that once again your IT people have screwed up again by changing something that didn't need changed and made it worse! Hopefully you guys (Yahoo) will get a clue and switch back to the older/previous classic mail format...et all!! As I am reading the overwhelming negative responses and problems with your "new" classic mail look. Much harder to read with the new colors, sent mail doesn't show who it was sent to...only has my name, the number of messages in each folder is not listed anymore( only shows number of messages in the inbox and drafts, one cannot "hover"…

  20. Why do you now place the "FROM" area FIRST and then the TO?

    GO BACK TO THE OLD MESSAGE FORMAT AND, CHECK THE "SENT" INBOX !!!!!!!!
    NOW ALL THE "SENT" MESSAGES SHOW MY NAME!!!
    WHO IS THE SMARTER NOW?
    HOW CAN I FIND A SENT MESSAGE?? YOU MAKE ME OPEN ALL OF THEM ???!!!
    WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO DO TO US???
    YOU ARE DOING IT ON PURPOSE FOR SOME REASON OR IS JUST THAT YOU ARE GETTING BURNT WITH PROGRAMMING???!!!
