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. Can no longer import large numbers of contacts via excel.

    Too much wasted space. Delete button is too far away from messages so I can not display many messages at a time. Why not make changes that benefit people. This is not cool

    Keep CLASSIC Mail for only Yahoo Mail PRO (PAID) customers only as a choice. It will mean a steady revenue stream for you, If someone so likes CLASSIC MAIL interface as so many f these thousands of comments bear out, let people pay for it.

    Are you not listening to the Voice of the Customer. For months on end, there has been a spate of negative comments about your new interface, Do you simply attribute every comment to CHANGE RESISTANCE? If you do that, then SHAME ON YOU YAHOO MAIL ! Shame on you!. You really run a terrible business…

  7. Go back to when it worked!!!

    Judging by the comments here, I'm not the only one who hates you "NEW" E-Mail. The sure way to ***** something up is to try and improve it, and this YAHOO has accomplished in spades! Everything takes longer to complete, all my automatic addresses disappeared, and moving e-mails to a folder, which before was simply drag and DONE, now takes 4 separate steps and 4 times as long!! Please bring back the system that worked, dump this "NEW" one, and just maybe the thousands who dislike your new and improved system won't switch e-mail providers.

  11. Quit making it harder to read

    Every time you update you make it less appealing. Harder to read and more involved just to use it.
    And then you can't even let me post here without going through some sign in ********.

  12. AND I USED TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE INTERNET FROM MY EMAIL. YOU TOOK THAT AWAY.

    You took away my access the web from my email and now I can't.
    Why don't you leave me alone? If I had wanted your new email format I wouldn't have deleted every email you sent masking me to upgrade.
    YOU ARE UNWELCOME PESTS.

  15. New version a retrograde step. Not fit for purpose

    Please re-instate the previous version which, amongst other benefits, included the 'paperless mail' illustrations, the ability to recall addresses immediately without leaving the page to search for them,etc. This 'new' version appears to me to be a retrograde step. It is not fit for purpose.

  16. Allow us to view MORE than 25 per page-- HUGE setback when you put in that limit!

    25 emails per page is far too few. At least 100 per page.

  20. You could make the letters show up in the Inbox. The in box is all broken up. DISGUSTING!

    The LETTERING for EMAILS are all broken up! Therefore you cannot read the EMAIL. You have to click on the space to get the EMAIL readable. Really disgusting! Surely you can do better than this. Maybe we need to go to MSN.
