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.

  1. You don't; switch it back and quit trying to fix what isn't broken!

    You don't improve something that's unwanted; you take it back and implement what was never broken to begin with.

  4. So now spam does't say how much might be in it until I open and look? WHY does every web developer SHOVE HORRIBLE UPGRADES onto people?

    Nothing was wrong with the classic version. Nothing at all.
    But now? Spam folder doesn't show number of messages in it. I have to click and open it. WHY?

    TOO **** MUCH UGLY PURPLE! Classic was much simpler.

    And WHY NOW do I have to click go to old version EVERY TIME I OPEN EMAIL! Leave it the *** ALONE!

    And I know now classic will go away for good. You already did that to one of my three accounts. At least I don't use that one often. But now your going to RUIN my daily email. I would love…

  6. It's ugly and the select all does not work.

    I click select all, it flashes complete on the left side but nothing is selected. It looks like a FisherPrice child version of email. Maybe it is a kid's toy and that why it is not functional.

  9. Bring back the fonts that were used in the old mail. The new ones are more difficult to read.

  14. Bring the classic yahoo mail back.

    This Yahoo Pro is useless. Trying to use dictation software is futile.
    Bring the classic Yahoo mail back. It has more options and overall easier to navigate.

  17. Go back to the old version

    Go back to the old version, at least in appearance. I can't stand the look of the new one. Just because you can change something doesn't mean you need to or have to. I told my kids that when they were very young, maybe you should have been in on that conversation.

  19. You can improve the new format by going back to the classic version. My email text is distorted and arbitrarily changed and links don't show
