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.

  1. Leave things alone

    the old mail was fine but you screwed it up. the font is too small, everytime i open an attachment I get a new tab open that is empty, attachments don't attach, and the list goes on. Quit screwing with the basic functionality and give us the option of going back to the old interface. You've broken what worked

  4. 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.

  8. Stop forcing me to get a verification number from my phone every time I want to log in

    You have a week, then it's Gmail or Hotmail. Get a grip and start listening to your customers

    It’s a feedback.

  16. User control of ad variables;e.g. flashing ads, workspace area

    The 'ad' space uses more screen that is necessary. Allow the user to dictate 'ad space' requirements. of better yet, a widget button thats
    allows acknowledgement , click then removes ad to increase work space. Flashing ads are very distracting- again, a widget or button to control or quiet down visual noise. I fully understand that ads pay for service. However, distracting ads drive away users.

  17. forward

    I note that I have to use the OLD email if I need to check/review my setting of forwarding ALL my emails to another place (one that sends me as SMS to come read the email) but there is no way to find that setting in your shiny new interface - I'm worried that the old system will be removed an I will be stuck unable to turn off or alter the forwarding account details. Please add the setting to the new interface.

  19. APLICATIVO OUTLOOK

    Good afternoon. I come through that letter to say the discontent with YAHOO.
    I have always used the OUTLOOK app, (OFFICE) and there have never been any problems.
    but you oblige the YAHOO user to use only using the YAHOO application, with useless advertisements, which overtake anyone and occupy the screen.

    I have tried several times to request the password to be able to use the OUTLOOK application, which you say is less secure, but it is not.

    This password works for a while after it doesn't work anymore.
    I prefer to transfer all my clients to another email and…
