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. Allow to view history of Deleted emails

    Yahoo! only allows seeing approx 30 days of Deleted emails. Why isn't there an option to view older, years, of Deleted emails in case we need for documentation, legal, etc., purposes?

  2. constant inappropriate ads

    I am seeing inappropriate ads on a regular basis. With the necessity for children to have to access the web for remote learning, it is in very poor taste to constantly have ads for stripper / ****** clothing / lingerie.

  3. 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.

  4. It would be nice to be able to update social media contacts

    A quick sign into social media sites for adding, removing and having the current list kept up to date in our email contacts list would be advantageous to both Yahoo and ourselves in keeping email list current with out dead contact email accounts remaining to report postmaster delivery error messages all the time. People do die and leave our circle of friends during life over time.

  5. Give me back my empty circle that pulls up all E-mails from that I can delete them as a whole vs. having to type the name in the search bar

    The empty circle (that allows me to delete all mail from that party) is why I keep Yahoo and rarely use my Gmail account. Without it there is no reason to keep Yahoo.

  14. Searches Suck because it doesn't produce emails w/ the key words that you enter.

    I keep trying to search for certain things in all of my email messages w/ certa, but instead of the search producing emails that contain those particular key words, it produces every lovin' email that contain words that have only a little PIECE of that word.....causing thousands of emails to search through instead of hundreds. Such as looking for the word "Mingle", it it bringing up hundreds & hundreds of emails that contain "Minute" & so on & so on. I can't even find the emails I want to because of it. :-/

  19. make sure ALL graphics in an email can be printed

    In case you are not aware, the new Yahoo Mail Basic does NOT print all graphics in emails. I have a Brother HL-L2320D printer, Windows 10 Pc, and I was not able to print all the graphics in emails from commercial sites sending me receipts such as Jet Blue. It took many hours to track down the problem and it was New Yahoo Mail Basic. How do I know you might ask? Because OLD Yahoo Mail Basic works perfectly.
