Bring back classic Mail
5455 commentsComments are closed
This new email is insane. I was writing an email, saving it, and kept going back to it, and something happened where the last words on the right end were half on that line and half on the next line! Also, some lines broke off and continued on the next line - and you can NOT back it back up to the previous line! So frustrating.
And this happened on two different emails.
Also, the compose screen jumps.
If their objective was to make their email so bad you can not use it, congratulations. It worked!

please bring back to my classic mail. i really like it
Plenty of feedback about the changes to basic mail a while back. Personally i still hate the changes. It's still very irritating, and i still find it far too bright and "in ya face".
When we get ignored it's hard to be nice when giving feedback, so it becomes even more of a problem as you will ignore rude/insulting comments. But with this there are comments that express why people didn't like the changes, these should not be ignored.
Basic mail wasn't perfect, but it was better than the all singing all dancing latest version. There are many reasons why people don't like to use the latest version, so we chose to use the basic mail. Making it look more like the latest version that we dislike just makes us angry. Even if you feel you need to make updates to keep it functional, you could still offer to keep the older styling that we were happy with. I personally find the look to be pretty disgusting, i hate looking at it.
Would it really be so bad to listen to the negative feedback and offer us, the users, a choice?
Of course, i know i've just wasted a few minutes of my life typing this out as Yahoo never, ever take notice of us, the users, unless we kiss your backside and offer nothing but praise. It would be nice if just for once my time wasn't wasted.

Cannot compose an email. Every word typed jumps to the next, and the next, and the next line

Yes, it is not uncommon for folks to be resistant to change. But change for the better is always welcome. This "New Yahoo Mail Basic" can best be improved by ending it and returning to the Classic
Email that we all enjoyed and appreciated. Consider all the negative feedback you have received re the new email. Why? Because it stinks on ice. Sorry, that's the way folks feels about it.
All The Best!

Maybe its time to talk good about 'other' emails.
Gmail is faster, NICE white screen, Does not age one's self
Proton Mail is NOT US based, nice and Secret for those who need SECRET with no COURT to say you must!
Yahoo! has BLUE screen of death!, slow, no longer blocks ad's
YAhoo! managers and directors do the right thing....please terminate yourselfs.

TWO things wrong with the allegedly "new and improved" Yahoo mail. IT ISN'T IMPROVED because it is VERY HARD TO READ and second you now have that **** promotional banner right above the inbox entries which is COMPLETELY AND UNETHICALLY designed to accidentally get a click through when someone is trying to open the first item in the in-box. Yahoo you should be ashamed of yourself, this is the kind of trickery usually pulled by Google and Amazon. I thought you were better than that, to stoop to their level by trying to trick people into clicking on an ad that is designed to look like an email and is positioned so close to in-box entries as to be virtually indistinguishable. HATE THOSE BANNER ADS it is really onerous of you to pull that ****.
I used basic. Then four months ago, they changed Basic and it's horrible.
When you're replying to an email, the screen jumps to another location/position as you're typing. Why does it do that? It's really annoying, Also, the font is way too small, and they removed the arrows that were added in a Fwd. email (I want them because I comment WITHIN email text sometimes and the arrows make it easier to differentiate between new and old text).
Also, you have to click "Edit" to be able to respond to an email WITHIN the text of the sender's email. Who's the genius that said, "Hey, let's add an unnecessary step when replying to an email"?
They are not listening to us here. But there is one way to make your voice heard. Either use Yahoo email less or not at all.
Then again, by making Yahoo email so bad you can't use it, I think their objective is to have fewer users using Yahoo email.

I hate this new format please give me back my old e-mail format

HATE this! You cannot switch between email addresses without signing in and out, I constantly get the screen to set my preferences for UNWANTED ADVERTISING AND SHARING OF MY PERSONAL INFORMATION! What part of NO is not understood? My signature lines all run together now and every time I try to scroll through messages I get ads for stuff I don't even own the body parts to use it on! Improving is vastly overrated in this case.
Or Outlook Mail? It's not bad at all, and MS is not so much in the business of spying.
There seem to be two versions. I have new Yahoo mail as we all do but I am still using Classic and there is a message saying "Switch to the newest Yahoo mail". I did that once and it used up so much memory that it was slow and irritating, so I switched back to Basic or Classic or Stripped Down or whatever it is. However, I cannot forward emails that have lots of formatting, which is a major nuisance. So my suggestion is - do whatever other mail services do to reduce memory usage and still keep the ability to forward a highly formatted email.

I like to switch to yahoo.com classic

Your management screwed up so badly, but your programmers are going to take the blame. It isn't fair. You need to fire the managers who designed the features because they sincerely don't know anything about use cases. They suck and they didn't do their jobs. When you suck and don't do your job you get fired. Unless you're Yahoo, in which case people just take screenshots of the horrible job you keep doing and log them online. Like an online Walmart the day before halloween.

Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, it!!!!! Go back to the classic and include the stationary & different fonts. Cheapskates! This is the worse.
