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.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.

  2. Go Back

    This new basic is awful...you switched me to the new email WITHOUT ME MAKING THE CHANGE! It is really bad - horrible use of screen space. So...I went back to "basic" which is a far cry from the old "basic" I now have no link insert, no emojis, no formatting and no settings icon. Just the worst...if it doesn't revert soon I'll go to gmail despite the hassle to change

  3. Attachments should be attachments, not thumbnail previews that can't be opened full size.

    The idea below mine is the same, but it won't let me "vote" w/o signing into something i don't want. Attachments need to have an option to open the attachments. People don't send them so we can only access a preview/thumbnail of it.
    Note, I am signed in. I don't know what hte problem is with this feedback option, but it needs fixing too.

  4. STOP THE CAPTCHA

    You guys are failing miserably at implementing the login captcha. Every time I have to waste lots of time clicking the stupid pictures (which in turn have ridiculous cooldown times) like my time was infinite. I pass every test, yet it keeps making me answer more and more every time. Today I had to go through 5 different tests before I gave up and went on a private window.

    ***** this ****, I'm switching.

  5. File attachment not working

    For the past two days, I've been trying to send a photo (yes, it is within the file size limits) and despite waiting up to two hours for the file to attach to the e-mail, it will not attach. Turns out, even trying to attach a document to an e-mail is not working either. FIX THIS!!!!!!

  15. I hate this. Please put it back. I can't copy and paste pictures.

    I just figured it out. You want us to PAY for the NEW full-featured version !!! That's why we LOST the copy and paste ability in the 'basic'. GRRRRR

  18. no of e-mails per page

    Please is there any way you can have an option of say the number of e-mails per page - say 20, 50, 100 maximum or something. That would be customised to your prefererences. Thank you in advance. (Just a suggestion).

  19. so not happy. Please stop updates without first explaining what these updates involve, I now can no longer see alot of emails that I need.

    What the heck? Stop deleting features and adding features. Need to allow users to pick from list of features that we want and the ones we don't want. this basic version still won't let me view all of my emails and they aren't in the spam folder. I know I did not authorize Yahoo to just delete the emails that you somehow picked. I want my **** emails to show up in my inbox again

  20. so not happy. Please stop updates without first explaining what these updates involve, I now can no longer see alot of emails that I need.

    I can no longer view a lot of emails. Whatever was done there are a lot of emails that I can no longer view at all and have tried going back to basic mail, but still can't see those emails. Getting to the point where I would rather use my goggle email instead. Every time yahoo pushes out an update there are things that I do not like. Need to allow us to pick which features in updates that we want and which ones we don't want
