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.

  4. Please do not post personal information (such as email addresses, phone numbers or names) on the forum.

  1. font color

    The font color is too faint - hard to read. Also, the ads on the sidebar are bigger. Not a fan of that.

  2. Please return to the previous Yahoo email format!!!

    There was no need for this new Yahoo format -- which I and many others don't like. Listen to Yahoo long-time users and return to a format that we all got used to using. The SENT doesn't work in the new format. I send an email and it doesn't immediately show under SENT -- unlike with the previous format.

  4. I would like to know how many emails I have in the Spam and Trash folders like all the other folders. I go over them before I delete them.

    I would like to know how many emails I have in the Spam and Trash folders like all the other folders. I go over the senders and then I delete them, just in case something wound up in there that should not have, but I don't want to keep checking to see how many emails there are in those folders for me to check. I like to keep that number low. I hope you can do it. Thanks.

  6. Give me back my numbers, I want to know how many emails are in each folder!

    999 is not helpful and no number at all is not helpful, Tell me exactly how many are in each folder and make everything so it's not ugly as could be! What is wrong with you people? Why can't you leave well enough alone? If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

  8. The old mail before the current "old" mail was better for me. You keep taking the r/h margin and when I use firefox, half of my mail's miss

    Go back to the old mail before the current "old" mail. Using Firefox as my browser means my emails are cut in half because of your useless right hand margin. 1/3 of my screen is blank and 1/2 of my text is cut off. Wow, this is useful.

  14. Drafts don't get saved, receipent address doesn't get hinted after entering first letters, drafts mail can't be scrolled up and down

    Drafts don't get saved, previously when I closed new mail in writing it was immediately saved as draft now it's lost, receipent address doesn't get hinted after entering first letters, drafts mail can't be scrolled up and down with arrows - it's hard to even begin describing how it all is messed up, bring it back as it was IMMEDIATELY
