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.

  4. Fire the managers who approved of the new Yahoo email.

    Fire the managers who approved of the new Yahoo email. The new email is more difficult to use. If think you are clever to have a job at a multi-billion dollar corporation, then prove it by making your applications easier to use and NOT more difficult to use.

  5. The new Basic Mail is robbing me of my limited data! I'm on a very strict data ration! How can I switch back to the older version??

    The new version of Basic Mail, which I installed on my Chromebook, is robbing me of my very strictly rationed data! New is not better! How can I revert back to the previous version of Basic Mail?!

  6. HATE HATE HATE THE NEW MAIL!!!

    I didn't ask for any changes, it's so confusing, I keep sending emails without the attachments cause the Send button is where Attach used to be; the Sender field doesn't fill out automatically as it used to do, I spend 10x more time now to send a stupid email. Do me a favor and Stop "improving" your mail.

  13. Reinstate the ability to type a few letters in the "To" box and have the top choice come up

    You search works okay, but I should not have to use it every time I want to enter an email address into a message I am composing. Please make it work as it did before.

  17. leaving basic version of email alone

    can't find the setting icon on the basic version of email that I switched back to. Chat option was a definite downer when I tried to use it.

    I'd like to personalize my email by changing the color of it, but can't find a setting option to accomplish it.

  18. Yahoo doesn't give a **** about its clients!

    This new version is being forced on us with NO way to go back to classic. Why is it being forced on us? Why is they no choice? Clients are wasting time on "feedback" but you don't give as ****!!! How do we get classic back? Are you trying to force a paid version on us????? I know it is a free version but you are making $$$$ off the tracking and advertising!!! Why don't you give clients the courtesy of a response?
