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.

  2. Have unread email on top

    It's a royal pain in the **** to have to set the viewer to unread on top EVERY TIME one open mail. Every other email client does it by default. You goofs trying to force people to leave?

  7. Do not allow the computer to change lettering in the contacts when saving

    I added a friend to my contact list. I need to capitalize the T in her name, however I can't save it that way, the system keeps changing it to a small t and then it adds the old email address when I put in the new when I compose, so it comes back as not being able to be sent. I even switched back to the basic because the send button was not showing on the screen. MAJOR frustration! It was working fine the other day. What happened?????

  8. Please make it easier to reset password

    The security required is way too strong. Yes, i'm aware of security but the password strength requirements drove me up the wall.

  11. bring back the older version

    Bring back the older version or make it possible for us to switch back.

    Don't you ever use some user input before dumping a new version on us?
    At least bring back the "Serach for a Folder" option when moving emails as well as the ability to f"find more emails" from the same source. Both of these are sorely missed.

    Why throw out things that are this useful? Bunch of Dummies!

  19. Whatever happened to the overall settings to make page look better..?

    You're not making your product any easier to maneuver every time you change things to suit you. Ask your customers what THEY want.
