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.

  1. Navigation and filter in Inbox

    1) In the Inbox, can we also have an option to filter emails yearwise?

    2) Can we have an option to navigate through the page numbers in addition to the arrow keys in the inbox?

  3. Contacts needs a complete overhaul. Managing my contacts is less than basic.

    Contacts needs a complete overhaul. Managing my contacts is less than basic. In fact I changed from New Yahoo Mail to Basic because I thought I might have better control but it wasn't. I have many 100's of contacts and if, for example, I want to delete multiple contacts, I can only do it one by one. No check boxes to select all and no individual selection of specific contacts.

    I would also like to create groups for selected contacts and send email to that 'group' rather than having to select individual contacts (although the auto-select as I type does…

  5. Allow to view history of Deleted emails

    Yahoo! only allows seeing approx 30 days of Deleted emails. Why isn't there an option to view older, years, of Deleted emails in case we need for documentation, legal, etc., purposes?

  6. Give me back my empty circle that pulls up all E-mails from that I can delete them as a whole vs. having to type the name in the search bar

    The empty circle (that allows me to delete all mail from that party) is why I keep Yahoo and rarely use my Gmail account. Without it there is no reason to keep Yahoo.

  7. Allow us to right click and open emails in new tab.

    I would like to be able to right click on my emails and open multiple ones at once just in new tabs in my browser.

  8. Videos in email

    Where is the option to disable videos in email?
    I am tired of wasting my internet quota because of this ridiculous idea from you.
    Either you put an option to DISABLE VIDEOS or I will delete my email in a week.

  9. make sure ALL graphics in an email can be printed

    In case you are not aware, the new Yahoo Mail Basic does NOT print all graphics in emails. I have a Brother HL-L2320D printer, Windows 10 Pc, and I was not able to print all the graphics in emails from commercial sites sending me receipts such as Jet Blue. It took many hours to track down the problem and it was New Yahoo Mail Basic. How do I know you might ask? Because OLD Yahoo Mail Basic works perfectly.

  10. the ability to view original message when accepting meeting requests

    There was a lot of pertinent information in the original email, but as soon as I clicked "accept" for the meeting request, the original email disappeared and I could not access the information. Including the web link for the meeting

  11. Put SPAM button on deleted mail folder.

    Deleted items currently have to be moved to inbox to be flagged as spam. This function should be available in deleted items also (and probably all mail folders.
