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.

  1. Previous emails cannot be viewed after Classic Mail changed

    Emails I need for a lawsuit were eliminated when you changed the look of mail a couple of days ago. I can pull up a few of them in search, but not all. And now I can only see today's emails...I didn't check them for several days previous because I was sick....now I have no idea what was sent to me. PLEASE provide a way to access previous emails.

    Go back to original version. Much easier to use and view. In addition, the new one set today, DOES NOT WORK! I am stumped and stopped from using right now!

  11. Thanks for asking our input

    Our community hopes Yahoo is sincere in seeking improvement for Yahoo Basic Mail. Myself and others are taking our valuable time to tell the Yahoo organization what needs to be restored in Basic Mail, simply..... because we care. Hopefully, the director of Yahoo basic mail design will restore these essential basic features and refrain from future whimsical, harmful efforts to fix what is not broken. For me, three basic issues require attention; two regarding the contacts page and one regarding passing on content. 1) In the Contacts page: Preference check boxes in front of the list of email contacts have…

  13. Can't find the list of Multiple recipients...

    Put it back the way it was. I need to be able to find the list of recipients when I search or look up an already sent message. Fix it. It worked fine before.

  16. While composing a new message, attempting to use an old function that doesn't exist any more can result in my entire draft disappearing.

    I have had this happen before when I tried to use boldface (control+b).

    Today it happened again when I tried to select and delete a portion of the message to which I was replying. First, the Delete button on my keyboard had no effect on the highlighted material. So I decided to try using the Backspace button to erase the material I didn't want. Immediately a new screen appeared and my partly composed message was nowhere to be found. It was not in my Drafts folder, probably because I hadn't used the new "Save as a Draft" button. I had…
