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.

  5. Group email not working

    New mail cannot be sent to a new group
    New mail cannot be sent to an old group
    Existing contacts cannot be added to a new group
    Existing contacts do not display group affiliations
    I guess groups are not groups at Yahoo any longer. Maybe they are just there for decorations.

  8. The inbox needs to be refreshed? No font size, colour and bullet points available?

    The inbox should not need to be refreshed.
    Font size,colour, bullet points should be available.
    Common thread should be available at the click of button, just like before.

  9. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Emptying Trash

    Hey! Yahoo has managed to create another great annoyance!! Now, when you click the icon to empty your trash, you are greeted with a piece-of-**** "Updating all messages" dialog box with a progress bar!! Who thought of that? Not needed, just empty the trash and tell me it's empty!! No "updating all messages" crockery necessary!!!!

  15. 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.
