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. Don't force phone recovery

    I have already (reluctantly) given you an e-mail address as a form of recovery. Please stop trying to persuade me to use my phone number as well. I have used yahoo for almost 20 years and this is enough to make me migrate to another e-mail address provider entirely. Please stop, you already have an alternative e-mail address and I can give you more but I do not want to link my phone number with my e-mail address.

  4. How can you improve?? Go back to the old version! It's that simple.

    I have to click inbox for new emails to arrive.
    I don't want the email to open when I click on the title.
    It doesn't automatically enter addresses when entering a letter in the "To" line.
    Don't see a print button.
    Where is the option for a "reading pane" under the inbox listing.
    I could go on, but don't have time. I'm spending too much time trying to make the new version work.

  6. 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.

  8. I am visually impaired. The new color scheme is blinding and make it unreadable. There is no settings button.

    I am visually impaired. Your color scheme is blinding and unreadable. Also I turned off all of my spam filters yet items still end up in spam that should not. This includes information about jobs, hobby related items and most suspiciously conservative emails, news, White House emails, etc. Frankly I am at the end of my rope with you people.

  9. Remove AD on first line in the Inbox

    It's clearly placed there purposely so people would click on it by mistake taking it for the first email on top.

  11. Revert back.. this is lame and unnecessary....

    By the number of responses....Yahoo is messing up... It would be much wiser to allow the user the option to keep the classic settings. Changes like this are bleak.. and trust yahoo will allow a revert.. instead of thinking that once people get used to it.. they will accept it... it is dismal and most distasteful.. too many unnecessary changes out there and now this?????????

  15. I still prefer the legacy Yahoo mail layout where I can see the total number of unread emails. Right it's only showing 999+. I hate this.

  16. The new mail system is totally lame and screwed up. Nearly all the good old features are lost, and this is supposed to be an improvement?

    I cannot upgrade my browsers (the computer won't handle it), so I have to remain with the old mail version. But now you have screwed up the good old Yahoo mail, destroying all its helpful features. People tell me it is time to move on to Gmail. I will, unless you bring back the old mail. In fact, I am also a paying business customer, and that mail system got screwed up as well!!

  18. 信箱不要老是改版,還要強迫用戶改用新版,設計不人性也就算了,還醜的一蹋糊塗,難用到讓人一肚子火,如果網頁設計人員很閒,可以另外找事情給他們做,不要老是改版,還越改越爛!
