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.
  2. This forum is for feedback and ideas only. Unfortunately, we cannot provide support here. For support, please visit our help site.
  3. Please do not post personal information (such as email addresses, phone numbers or names) on the forum.

The Yahoo product feedback forum requires a valid Yahoo ID and password. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

  1. Stop collecting fees from the spammers

    Today is a typical day for me, over 60 spam messages and only one actual legit email. This is overwhelming! Does Yahoo Mail want to serve actual users or junk mailers. Make a choice before I chose to delete my account.

  2. About a week ago, I cut a line from an article, and pasted it on some comments on Yahoo News. Since then, all of my comments are rejected.

    Can you please restore my ability to comment on Yahoo News. All of my comments are rejected. Why???

  4. How about knocking off the robot verification and verification codes, PARTICULARLY when you reject the codes.

    Get it together with these verification checks. Every time I've tried to sign in recently, you've had some kind of verification check for robots, unusual activity, or some other nonsense. It's gotten very stale, especially when I type in your verification codes and you still insist that "something went wrong."

  5. Update is ****

    Just for the record, your latest update stinks. I liked my dark forest background. I hate having to scroll up in order to delete. The escape key doesn't close a box. I haven't checked on tabs, but I bet they're screwed up, too. Please, I want my old email format back!

  10. Emails from Yahoo periodically show up then disappear (no filters or forwards in place) . It happens sporadically.

    Email alert happens, message appears in mailbox on iPhone then disappears. Does not appear on yahoo mail either. It is sporadic and has been happening for quite some time. Have removed yahoo from iPhone and reinstalled, but the problem persists. frustrating. If I can catch the emails nd open it, it will remain in inbox, otherwise gone forever....

  12. deletion of emails

    Thank you, Yahoo. I'm in the middle of possible litigation with a federal agency. Since your stupid email service decided to unilaterally and without consent to delete my emails for the past year, I'm SOL. Thanks a lot. You used to have a decent email serv ice. Not any more.

  19. I do not want automatic language settings but my account in English this is impossible when one travels and does NOT KNOW THE LANGUAGE

    The language settings of the account should be left as is. NOT only did the account change automatically to language of the country where the login is BUT IT DOES NOT HAVE AN OPTION FOR PUTTING IT BACK TO ENGLISH - this is actually something that makes this account UNUSABLE - allow people to chose there language for the account!
