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.

    Keep CLASSIC Mail for only Yahoo Mail PRO (PAID) customers only as a choice. It will mean a steady revenue stream for you, If someone so likes CLASSIC MAIL interface as so many f these thousands of comments bear out, let people pay for it.

    Are you not listening to the Voice of the Customer. For months on end, there has been a spate of negative comments about your new interface, Do you simply attribute every comment to CHANGE RESISTANCE? If you do that, then SHAME ON YOU YAHOO MAIL ! Shame on you!. You really run a terrible business…

  7. Don't add an extra line. Its a list not new paragraphs

    Leave my text alone. It is not helpful to add extra lines where they are not wanted.

  9. Include Time duration (From/To) criteria to delete emails

    It will be good if we can delete old mails as one shoot by selecting time duration by days, months, and years. This will save yahoo storage disks and make it easy to us to delete old / unused emails using one click.

  11. SPAM and DELETE buttons are too close together!

    When deleting email, I am accidentally clicking the SPAM button because the two are too close together!!!! I started wondering why I was no receiving and discovered they were going to SPAM. The two buttons need a larger separation space!

  12. Make voting easier.

    This screen needs a button to sort the list below , showing ideas in rank order.

    That way we could vote on existing ideas without trying to create existing items, (like send only when SEND is clicked.)

  14. Once you switch to the new Yahoo sign out and then back in and all functions will work like they did before!

    Once you switch to the new Yahoo sign out and then back in and all functions will work like they did before! Maybe a short video tutorial of the new changes and how to adjust to them would be helpful for those GEEZERS who don't know how/like to adapt to change! I like the new layout. FRESH is FRESH!!!
