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.

The Yahoo product feedback forum requires a valid Yahoo ID and password. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.

  1. I do not agree this new Yahoo Mail. The old version is better.

    Why was it necessary to change? To make what? Bring the old version back!

  7. I wanted to switch back to the old version because it was easier to add filters/rules for my mails but that feature is all gone.

    I wanted to switch back to the old version because it was easier to add filters/rules for my mails but that feature is all gone. You can't rightclick to add filters/rules so now both versions of Yahoo! mail are useless to me. Please bring back the rightclick to add filters and let us use split screen to read mails.

  9. Let me go back to the mail I've been comfortable with

    Seems to be a liberal takeover. Do as we say and if you don't like the change , too bad.

  10. The new mail is terrible, the layout is not intuitive like the old one and we have lost the formatting tools and emoticons.

    The new mail is terrible, the layout looks amateurish, is not intuitive like the old one and we have lost the formatting tools and emoticons. Please put the trendy new designer back in his box and restore our Classic email.

  14. the spam folder does not warn me when I receive mail.

    Surely this must be a bug ? My old yahoo mail I could see if I received any spam, it would tell me how many without having to open the folder.

    Every week I receive important mail that ends up in the spam folder and now I dont know how many I receive. Fix asap.

  15. Your new e mail sucks. I don't recall telling you I wanted to change it. Put it back to my original e mail. The one that worked.

    Your new e mail sucks. I don't recall telling you I wanted to change it. Put it back to my original e mail. The one that worked. Why does everyone want to change what works for something that never works f ing up my entire morning and screwing up my work day. It worked fine, so don't f with it cause people always make it worse when they f with it and change stuff. Almost making it worthless now.l

  16. It sucks. Give me back my old Yahoo!

    Same as others posted. Does not work. Please stop changing things around. It's always a mess that I hate, and never asked for.

  18. Stop changing! You have achieved nothing but upsetting customers. Awful design

    Stop changing! You have achieved nothing but upsetting customers. Awful design and you constant auto playing of news clips has given me to leave. GMX offers free email service with no adverts, switching out my account.

  20. Correo clasico anterior

    Deseo como usuario que se respete mi libertad, mis gustos y preferencias. Que al cambiar a la versión anterior del correo clasico quede como predeterminada y que si es mi voluntad elijir la nueva versión, pueda hacerlo. Pero obligarme a usar una versión no elegida vulnera mi libertad de elección. Gracias
