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.

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

  1. Stop changing what it looks like, really annoying.

    Give users a option to go back to how it used to look.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  7. Stop changing what isn't broken. And quit asking me if I'm sure I want to sign out, I've already clicked "sign out" so, yes, I want to.

    Quit changing things that work, and quit asking me if I'm sure I want to sign out. I've already clicked "sign out", so, yes, I want to sign out. Just another unnecessary change. I'm guessing you get "click credit" for pushing us through another page.

  10. Start over again. Glaring white is hideous and painful

    Yahoo sucks. Now it blinding white with no options to change color.
    My computer is capable of 65 million colors, with Yahoo I get white, white and more white.

    Yahoo continues to get worse with each new "improvement".

  13. one step forward, one step back - either fix or return to old version

    Although this new version works better on an iphone (with Safari), it is worse on the desktop.
    Unlike old version, Spam and Trash no longer indicate whether or not there is anything in those folders, so you waste time clicking on them to see if there is anything

  14. It's unfortunate that, if I look up history (Alt + S) it now lists items by number, not subject. How can we fix this?

    This means that, if I haven't memorized the numbers of all email I receive, it's almost impossible to find an earlier one (if, for instance, I open an email, then want to skip down to one I recall that was on a similar subject from a few days in the past) without scrolling through pages of inbox and/or trash (maybe I can't remember whether I've saved it or not). Please, please, please fix this!

  18. Yahoo has now made mail less accesible, less usable, and less friendly. Thank you for making sure we know we need to switch mail proviers.

    You have now made basic mail so problematic that it is less accessible. The color and font choices are problematic for those with sight problems. The colors are so eye jarring that they've actually set off a migraine. The new design is worse than you 'new' mail that no one wants to use.

    The page view is cluttered unnecessarily with more than ads. It's less usable. It's less palatable to use. If this keeps up, I'll take on the monumental task of changing my email service provider off yahoo.

    Please quit changing it back each time I reload it. No…

  20. Mail user interface changed suddenly and won't change back

    When I check for Yahoo mail, the URL becomes https://mail.yahoo.com/b/?.src=ym&reason=myc (ugly version) but used to be https://mail.yahoo.com/neo/b/launch?.src=ym&reason=myc (the version I like). When the ugly version is current, and I choose "Go to old version" from the Account Info pulldown and then choose Go, the interface goes back to the one I like. However, the change is only temporary. Every time that I log in (with this user name only), I get the ugly version again. How can I permanently go back to the "old version"?
