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.

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. Abandon format change! I cannot read the smaller and less contrasted print.

    Put back the darker Blue anc better contrasted format. Also restore the larger print-I cannot read the new format.

  2. Put it back the way it was.

    It was perfectly fine. Why do you insist on changing it and forcing it on everyone? There is a reason why I have Basic. This is now totally screwed up. I didn't ask for this; I don't like this; I certainly don't want this; I hate this. Put it back the way it was!

  5. Mail Preview

    I'd like to have the mail preview back. I don't want to have to open the email all the way to read it.

  6. THIS SUCKS!!!

    The newest version of email sucks, and now the "new" version of the "Classic" email sucks. News flash.......it isn't "classic" anymore if you change it!!!!! Please restore the original version of the Classic email so many of us are asking for.
    **I can't delete a string of emails efficiently anymore. Instead of hitting hitting the shift button to delete consecutive emails, I now have to click on each one individually.
    **I can't figure out how to get the preview window back.
    **There is not a number anymore next to the trash cans adjacent to the spam and trash folder showing…

  7. Why too many things broken, missing, or working incorrectly to list here. How do I get back to the version that worked correctly?

  9. WRONG SUGGESTION FROM YAHOO MAIL SUPPORT

    RESPONDED · Product Support (Admin, Yahoo) responded
    Hi there,

    Thank you for your feedback. The option to switch back to the previous version can be found in the dropdown menu on the upper right of the screen. Open the dropdown and select “Go to old version” and click “Go”.

    Thanks,
    Mail Support

    THIS DOES NOT EXIST. NO DROP DOWN NO CHOICE. HELP

  13. Remove the publicity on the first line

    The Pub on the first line is very annoying as it looks like a new email. Put it somewhere else! And you shouldn't have forced it on those who didn't want to change versions. You could have just added features without changing the layout. Please consider.

  20. Correo clasico es mejor

    Que la nueva versión sea optativa, de lo contrario habrá que optar por otros correos y no quiero, pues estaba satisfecho con el correo clasico de yahoo mail.
