New Mail Basic Beta



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. 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.

  5. New basic mail not working well in 1024x768 resolution

    My screen has a resolution of 1024x768 pixels. The new basic mail is putting that ad bar on the right on top of some of my messages. In some cases, the message extends so far to the right that the ad overlays the "Show Images" link, so I can't click it to show the images in the mail. This was never a problem with the old format of basic mail, which I would much prefer to return to.

  14. Save ,,Private Old Style".

    Save old style, or at least make the option ,,back to old style" fixed, i mean, if i choose the old style, i want to see it every time when i log in. Maybe i have to take time to like the new style, still I prefer the old.
