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.

  5. Delete and block irrelevant mails

    Hi there,
    Previously, it was easier to delete and block unwanted emails. but now since few months this option is no more available and its quite annoying to copy and add thousands of irrelevant emails in to block email id tab via setting option. Pls make it either as easy as it was in previous version or invent way more easy option to block unnecessary /irrelevant/unwanted emails

  8. Yahoo Mail is used by Basic Mail Only under SRWare Iron

    I am using SRWare Iron version 74.0.3850.0 64-bit and I have noticed that Yahoo Mail (the Basic Version) works on this browser. SRWare Iron should be supported on the "New" version of Yahoo Mail. On top of that, I have submitted a letter that was on May 28, 2019 regarding this issue and this idea may fall deaf (may not be considered to be accepted) because: (1) the response to this issue/idea has a 98% chance of having someone that doesn't understand English very well to misinterpret this and (2) having a forum support doesn't hold up very well in…

  11. Prove I'm not a robot during sign-in

    Hey, what a great idea! Let's the user base off by insisting they prove they're not a robot during the sign-in process! It's already annoying that they have to go through a two-step process, let's make it three!! What a great **** idea!!!

  12. small changes

    Every time you change the format, it takes precious time away from my work and personal projects. I would suggest IF you MUST change the look, do very small, minor changes at a time. I do not know if the big changes are due to necessary updating systems or because you are feeding into the current societal need for something new all the time. Please stop.

  13. Flawed wrap around and justification on word processing

    Just want to point out there is a problem with the word processing aspects of the email program, specifically with justification of the margins and wrap around of the text onto the next line. Words as short as "be" or "an" are being broken up into 2 lines of text. The word "the" was broken into "t" on one line and "he" on the next line. The word "top" was broken into "to" on one line and "p" on the next. At first I thought this was due to adding new text into the middle of existing text, but it…

  15. Remove the scrolling of everything!!!!!!

    When scrolling all your folders and emails scrolls together, which is a pain.
    It was better when just you email you were reading only scrolled. BRING BACK BASIC!!

  17. FIX THE **** BUGS!!!! And stop using stupid phone style icons!

    As soon as more than one screenfull of text is typed, the editor constantly moves the text out of view, so one is typing blind; no amount of window repositioning makes any difference.

    The new icon buttons are utterly stupid, inconsistent and unwanted. I want buttons with Text! I am not using a ruddy smartphone!

    And why does downloading an attachment now create an extra tab that then becomes null? What idiot coded that?

    Why is the count of emails in the Drafts folder now just 999+ instead of a proper number? Do you think people are scared of big…
