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.


  1. You upgraded my mail without asking and this new Yahoo Mail Basic is horrible. Search is downgraded. Navigating the app is timeconsuming.

    This "upgrade" definitely took about 1000 steps backwards. Every aspect of "New Yahoo Mail Basic" is far more difficult to navigate than the prior version. I'll be switching my accounts to gmail.

  5. Restore Images from Post Office

    Until last Friday, mail images from the Post Office were presented on reading the email. Suddenly, they do not appear. Please restore the images. Something changed in Yahoo mail, please change it back.

  8. get the old version back... I can't add any attachments

    I can't add attachments. I looked at the new format, and, when asked if I wanted to return to the old format, I chose the old one and now Im stuck with this HORRIBLE new format.
    Shame on Yahoo

  11. Basic mail editing message mode

    When using your basic mail editing message mode, it is impossible to send a long message, as the box continues to scroll to the top of the box. The box length should be increased in size or made flexible to fill the whole available screen length. Otherwise Basic mail helps people with slow internet connections. Thank you for providing this option.

  13. Delete Contact In Bulk

    I would love to have a way to bulk delete contacts. Somehow Yahoo mail imported contacts from long ago, and I have 1,000+ that I no longer want in my contacts list. But there's no way to remove them, unless I do it one by one.

  15. Change it back to the OLD Yahoo Mail Basic. I can't send out any emails right now with what I have. I don't like the new one either.

    I can't send out any emails right now with what I have. I don't like the new one either. . Plus it messes up my Zoom Meetings that I attend. It wasn't broke, and if it's not broke.........DON'T FIX IT!!!!!!! Please put the original yahoo email back in place, or at least as an option. I might as well have NO email at all, than to have this mess that you have made.

    Trying to forward a message. Simple, right? Yahoo! says: "There was a problem!The Reply-to address set on your account is unverified. Please update this in settings"

    I do that and try again. Same message. How do I make this work? Seems the problem is on Yahoo!'s end, not mine. And, no, I will not change to a proprietary browser.
