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.


  1. When someone selects "Go Back to Old Version" make it permanent!

    If I select "Go Back to Old Version" that means I prefer the old version. Stop changing it back after I sign out!!!!!

  3. 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.

  4. 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"?

  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.

  16. Keep older version. Easier to navigate instead of forcing to learn how to reuse the same email in a new way. I want to go back to classic!

    Keep older version. Easier to navigate instead of forcing to learn how to reuse the same email in a new way. I want to go back to classic!

    Go back to the classic version. It's annoying to force others to learn a new way to use their email. People don't want to have to keep relearning how to use that email again and again. It's annoying... not new and "improved." It's not familiar and easy to use. Instead of using the old classic email quickly and getting on with the day... people have to hunt and search for their basic…

  19. 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.
