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.

  2. Fixing It

    My Idea is for you to put it back the way it was before you went f%ked it all up how do you work an email system that doesn't let you just scroll through your emails no you fricken idiots make it pages how does a person go through large amounts of email page by page when you check boxes and try to keep going to the next page the boxes you checked on the first page get unchecked do you see the stupidity in that before you go an change things why not ask people what they want

  6. 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.

  9. Return me to the previous format. Hate this new one! Get notice my Yahoo mail is not supported by my current browser.

    The new mail format gives me a notice that my browser does not support the new format and I need to download Chrome, which does not work since I had updates from Microsoft for 11.

  14. How to filter e-mail?

    In old version one was able to create filter, this helping sorting incoming mail in right folders. The funciton was accessed by right-clicking the message and choose "filter this message" from scroll down menue. Now I can't even find filer function in settings?

    Also, the tip of returning the old yahoo-mail mentioned in a thread, is not working. The menues at "the upper right on screen" does not do the trick.

    Best regards /Olof

  17. This new e-mail format does not work. New e-mails do not come in unless I restart Yahoo. Please fix or go back to the old system.

    This new e-mail format does not work. New e-mails do not come in unless I restart Yahoo. Please fix or go back to the old system. Also, the page goes blank when deleting e-mails or downloading files. In other words, it's rubbish.

  19. Can I change back to the old format? This design is not only childish, but less user friendly than the classic email interface.

    Why did Yahoo have to mess up a good thing. Stop letting recent college grads run the redesign and user interface.
