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.

The Yahoo product feedback forum requires a valid Yahoo ID and password. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.

    the ads are intrusive and annoying. at least make them smaller and not automatically play the video ads. give us a choice of what to do with the ads. I understand why they are there but they are getting bigger and more "in your face" all the time. I will change email client if this persists and gets worse. I would like to think that yahoo is intelligent enough to notice how many people are giving negative feedback about this issue. This world is broken enough without yahoo trying to shove ads down our throats. Have some compassion for the…

  5. The sort feature needs to stay sorted.

    when I select a "sort by" I expect it to be sorted by that selection the next time I open my mail, but NOOOOO. It goes back to the stupid day of the week look and I don't like it. Gime back the old mail basic.

  11. block subdomain option

    I need to be able to enter subdomains as a wildcard into my blocked emails list (like @'*'happyworks.org) because people are using subdomains now to spam us. They buy 1 domain for like $9 and make 500 random character subdomains off of it (like @g89f2.happyworks.org) then make an email account in each of the subdomains and send the same spam message to their list of email addresses and boom you get 500 spam messages of the same thing in a day. Or possibly they have 1 website and the spam program just tacks on a subdomain... either way it is…

  12. Recently, Yahoo cannot remember my personal pc. I have to go through the verification step every time I log in. DO NOT make any change!!!!

    Recently, Yahoo cannot remember my personal pc. I have to go through the verification step every time I log in. DO NOT make any change!!!! DO NOT update!!!! I have been using this Basic version for 20 years. Every time you made a change to it, you created troubles!!!!! It is proved to be good enough, just keep it good enough, that is, DO NOT make any unchanged!!!

  17. LET US WHITELIST DOMAINS AND EMAIL ADDRESSES

    You have listed my church's domain as SPAM and NOT sent the emails from it to my SPAM folder. I want to be able to WHITELIST that domain so that I can receive communications from my church in a timely manner. This is churchofjesuschrist.org. How long must I be denied emails that I need just because you want to play games with my inbox?

  19. It is impossible to type long messages

    As soon as your text goes over a certain number of lines, the scroll bar resets the text to the top of the page, making it almost impossible to continue typing as you cannot see what you are typing.
