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. Delete and block irrelevant mails

    Hi there,
    Previously, it was easier to delete and block unwanted emails. but now since few months this option is no more available and its quite annoying to copy and add thousands of irrelevant emails in to block email id tab via setting option. Pls make it either as easy as it was in previous version or invent way more easy option to block unnecessary /irrelevant/unwanted emails

  4. Physical address information (Address) as well as notes have disappeared from the contacts list. I need to restore them asap.

    Restore addresses saved in the Contacts list (not email addresses, actual addresses).

  6. Prove I'm not a robot during sign-in

    Hey, what a great idea! Let's the user base off by insisting they prove they're not a robot during the sign-in process! It's already annoying that they have to go through a two-step process, let's make it three!! What a great **** idea!!!

  10. Include Time duration (From/To) criteria to delete emails

    It will be good if we can delete old mails as one shoot by selecting time duration by days, months, and years. This will save yahoo storage disks and make it easy to us to delete old / unused emails using one click.

  12. Don't add an extra line. Its a list not new paragraphs

    Leave my text alone. It is not helpful to add extra lines where they are not wanted.

  16. Different background color for unread messages

    To be honest, I don't like the "New Yahoo Mail", both Full and Basic, now mandatory as the "Yahoo Classic Mail" has been discontinued.
    Anyway, please could you add an option/template setting that allow to change the background color of the unread messages.
    Thanks.

  18. There is no way to improve.

    You have ruined what was OK for the majority. You have removed access to recent photos. In fact the whole file seems to have disappeared. Get me back to old system.

  20. Make voting easier.

    This screen needs a button to sort the list below , showing ideas in rank order.

    That way we could vote on existing ideas without trying to create existing items, (like send only when SEND is clicked.)
