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.

  3. font color

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

  10. Bring the classic yahoo mail back.

    This Yahoo Pro is useless. Trying to use dictation software is futile.
    Bring the classic Yahoo mail back. It has more options and overall easier to navigate.

  14. You can improve the new format by going back to the classic version. My email text is distorted and arbitrarily changed and links don't show

  15. Let me go back to the mail I've been comfortable with

    Seems to be a liberal takeover. Do as we say and if you don't like the change , too bad.

  16. WRONG SUGGESTION FROM YAHOO MAIL SUPPORT

    RESPONDED · Product Support (Admin, Yahoo) responded
    Hi there,

    Thank you for your feedback. The option to switch back to the previous version can be found in the dropdown menu on the upper right of the screen. Open the dropdown and select “Go to old version” and click “Go”.

    Thanks,
    Mail Support

    THIS DOES NOT EXIST. NO DROP DOWN NO CHOICE. HELP

  19. I wanted to switch back to the old version because it was easier to add filters/rules for my mails but that feature is all gone.

    I wanted to switch back to the old version because it was easier to add filters/rules for my mails but that feature is all gone. You can't rightclick to add filters/rules so now both versions of Yahoo! mail are useless to me. Please bring back the rightclick to add filters and let us use split screen to read mails.

  20. Your new e mail sucks. I don't recall telling you I wanted to change it. Put it back to my original e mail. The one that worked.

    Your new e mail sucks. I don't recall telling you I wanted to change it. Put it back to my original e mail. The one that worked. Why does everyone want to change what works for something that never works f ing up my entire morning and screwing up my work day. It worked fine, so don't f with it cause people always make it worse when they f with it and change stuff. Almost making it worthless now.l
