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. For password or sign-in feedback or suggestions, click here.
  4. Please do not post personal information (such as email addresses, phone numbers or names) on the forum.

  4. This new design is broken and does not show me all of my mail.

    For the past week, every time I clicked to use the old version, new mails would show up. Now that button is gone, and every time I open Yahoo it says there are new mails, but there is no new mail in my boxes. Thank you so much for breaking things so that I can not access my mail. It's wonderful, considering most of my tax documents are electronic and associated with this email.

  5. Very slow and bad interface

    Please send back me to the older version of the yahoo, this version is very poor, it is very slow, every process has more steps and how one can make a simple process difficult. Yahoo have complicated the things in the mail

  10. An improvement would be to go back one update.

    An improvement would be to go back one update. Then when you get that irresistible urge to make another "improvement" go back one more step from there.
    You've improved it so much I can't read it. Light blue on medium blue on gray on slightly darker blue. Nice.

  12. font color

    The font color is too faint - hard to read. Also, the ads on the sidebar are bigger. Not a fan of that.

  16. Don't force phone recovery

    I have already (reluctantly) given you an e-mail address as a form of recovery. Please stop trying to persuade me to use my phone number as well. I have used yahoo for almost 20 years and this is enough to make me migrate to another e-mail address provider entirely. Please stop, you already have an alternative e-mail address and I can give you more but I do not want to link my phone number with my e-mail address.

    The drag and drop function for sorting emails to different mail boxes worked great but now I can't do it.

  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.)
