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. Stop with the newer versions. Make it look like the old version, just hide the new **** in a 'special' area for those who want those things.

    Just make it look and act like the older, simpler version but have a 'special functions' button in settings where those who want the new stuff can get at it with the new stuff just adding to the frame.

  3. I see no one here that likes the new Yahoo Mail

    I see no one here in favor of the new Yahoo Mail. Yet, Yahoo wants to continue to force it down our throats. I don't know if it's true or not, but I heard Google was getting rid of their e-mail. I wonder if Juno still has their free e-mail service. At any rate, it appears that the lack of competition is allowing Yahoo to do any dang thing they want.

  4. pls add the safe feature to see who is sending the message without opening the message

    Passing the mouse over who is sending the message (hotmail, gmail allow us) allow us to see the real hacker name and so, we can send him/her to a report folder also needed if you really want to capture hackers....and .... we do not have to open that message!
    We all would really appreciate that feature.

  17. Don't like the look of this change in yahoo mail

    Last night I went to look at my credit card account and when I got back in my email yahoo it says that it has change to this new one. I liked it the old way because you could click the drop down to go to your folder but now you have to click the folder name and then press apply. I know after a few days I will get used to it but it bugs me!!! I think the cancel button is in a different place so you have to get used to that too!!!! THIS KIND OF SUCKS!!!!!…

  19. I hate that the delete button is now all the way to the right. Put it back where it was next to the message title.

    I hate that the delete button is now all the way to the right. Put it back where it was next to the message title. When I am skimming through my emails, I have to take my eye off of the titles, go all the way to the right to find the delete button. By then, I end up selecting the wrong email to delete. PUT IT BACK WHERE IT WAS!!!!
