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. Different background color for unread messages

    To be honest, I don't like the "New Yahoo Mail", both Full and Basic, now mandatory as the "Yahoo Classic Mail" has been discontinued.
    Anyway, please could you add an option/template setting that allow to change the background color of the unread messages.
    Thanks.

  2. I can no longer copy and paste an image into an email. No thanks for that.

    What gives? I just tried to save an idea by copying and pasting an image into my email and it wouldn't paste. That's super disappointing and actually worthless. I don't understand why you had to go and mess around with a perfectly good system.

  4. There is no way to improve.

    You have ruined what was OK for the majority. You have removed access to recent photos. In fact the whole file seems to have disappeared. Get me back to old system.

  6. why is screen not updating when new mail indicator is on

    You tell me I have a new email - I see the dot on the tab in Chrome...I go to my inbox and I don't see said new email.... why should I have to refresh the screen in order to see the said new email... why don't you bring back classic...it worked so much better than this new piece of trash you have forced on us

    ALSO, why do I have to log into yahoo if I have clicked on FEEDBACK FROM my yahoo account...

  7. Quote messages with the good ol' greater-than sign.

    I have to click THREE times to get the text of the message to which I'm replying in plain-text and it isn't even quoted. Ridiculous. Even Netscape Communicator was not this brain-dead, and that's saying a lot.

  8. Yahoo Enhanced needs to re-display the email at the top when it is responded

    When an email that was sent is responded, it should be repostioned to the top of the display with a new arrival time/date. .

  11. Bring back exactly where an email is stored on the main email listing.

    If I hit search looking for an email on say "puppies" a list would pop up and each email would list WHERE each email about puppies was located - (inbox, sent, a folder you created, etc). This NEW ****** yahoo email does NOT tell you where each email is located.

  13. I can no longer write in Hebrew (right to left).

    I can no longer write in Hebrew (right to left). Not in the new UI and not in the classic. Not on the web and not in the android application.
    This is very sad

  14. Time-management

    From time-management perspective it would be very nice if people could have the option to give in a maximum ammount to check the e-mail daily. For example I give in that I want to check it maximum X-times (two) a day and there must be at least X hours between it. Everything on peoples own choice, not forced. So instead of checking the e-mail whole day, man can also focus on work or other things. Now e-mail is often a distraction instead of useful. And if people want to change the option, the change happens not directly but man have…

  15. Timed Send

    Make an appointment to use a specific time to send an email (in the future). It is also handy if a sender wants to retract an email before it is sent. It gives us time to reconsider.
