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.

  8. After marking mails as Not Spam, all my 860 important mails disappeared from my inbox.This seems issue with yahoomail.Plz check it

    It’s a feedback.
    Accidentally I clicked on Spam button and marked all my inbox emails as spam.so I was checking and moving them and moving them to my existing folders but suddenly appeared pop-up message displaying "Do you want to mark all 860 emails as Not Spam" and when I clicked Ok/Yes option (not sure which one was displaying) all my 860 mails disappeared and not found in any of my folders in yahoo account. This looks like issue with yahoo mail account as many have posted the similar issue online but I didn't find any solution to get back…

  12. User control of ad variables;e.g. flashing ads, workspace area

    The 'ad' space uses more screen that is necessary. Allow the user to dictate 'ad space' requirements. of better yet, a widget button thats
    allows acknowledgement , click then removes ad to increase work space. Flashing ads are very distracting- again, a widget or button to control or quiet down visual noise. I fully understand that ads pay for service. However, distracting ads drive away users.

  13. forward

    I note that I have to use the OLD email if I need to check/review my setting of forwarding ALL my emails to another place (one that sends me as SMS to come read the email) but there is no way to find that setting in your shiny new interface - I'm worried that the old system will be removed an I will be stuck unable to turn off or alter the forwarding account details. Please add the setting to the new interface.

  15. APLICATIVO OUTLOOK

    Good afternoon. I come through that letter to say the discontent with YAHOO.
    I have always used the OUTLOOK app, (OFFICE) and there have never been any problems.
    but you oblige the YAHOO user to use only using the YAHOO application, with useless advertisements, which overtake anyone and occupy the screen.

    I have tried several times to request the password to be able to use the OUTLOOK application, which you say is less secure, but it is not.

    This password works for a while after it doesn't work anymore.
    I prefer to transfer all my clients to another email and…

  17. By bringing back the older version. Or to give us at least the option to get back to the older version.

    Give us the chance to get back to the older version. Where are the Emojis? it has changed, but not everything for the better.

  18. Re-enable 'old' feature to move emails

    I am still trying to use this 'new' version. Today I find I cannot move a sent email to a different folder. I have a system - HAD a system - which I can no longer use. PLEASE give us back the older version. I am an older person and cannot stand these changes.

  19. font color

    The font color is too faint - hard to read. Also, the ads on the sidebar are bigger. Not a fan of that.
