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. 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!!!!

  5. Go back to the way it was - it looks hideous, is more difficult for the dyslexic to read, and the text no longer renders properly!

  7. Allow us to change the color to gray, purple is too bright

    Too much purple on the screen, too bright! Let us change it to something less blinding. Or better yet, BRING BACK THE OLD CLASSIC!!!

  9. If it's not broke, don't fix it. The new mail is somewhat crowded and the 'trash' icon is hard to find.

  11. Problem in my 'sent' folder: Your 'new' basic mail does not show who 'sent' mails were sent to. When will you fix that?

    Problem in my 'sent' folder: Your 'new' basic mail does not show who 'sent' mails were sent to. Instead, it shows that i sent it (not to whom!)
    I already know that I sent them (who else?!)
    so - When will you fix that?

  13. Let the email adress pop up when I start writing the mail! Thank you!

    Before, the email adress came popping up when I started to write the name of the person I was going to write to. Now I have to go through my whole adress list to find the person's adress, and then click.

  15. 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.

  16. Back to the old, I can't even type a msg, freezes my laptop, go back to the old.

    Absolutely horrible, can't type msgs, now that's what email used
    to be about, the text freezes, my laptop freezes, the cursor hides,
    even typing the title here was almost impossible, it stops after
    every word, to see if there is something already similar, posted,
    I could care less what was already posted.
    You are taking us back to the stone age, please return the format
    that you just destroyed, we need to send and receive msgs.
    Thanks for you past good work, now please fix this joke of an
    email system.
    Ted

  18. Stop changing it, leave it alone. People are so sick of having to relearn how to use basic functions when apps change.

  20. Please change the colors of the new page back to similar colors of the classic version. The new version hurts my eyes so badly!

    The colors and layout of the new version are very ******* the eyes and now make looking at email an unpleasant task.
