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. Quite screwing with something that isn't broken.

    here we go again; Idle hands are the work of the devil. Things are slow and you need something to ***** with. Why don't you paint the office walls and watch the paint dry. I would be careful ; you can't AFFORD to lose any more eyeballs, but keep "tweaking and improving" and you base is going to move on

  3. Make windows use the message title.

    When I open a message in a new window (which is why I don't use your more modern interface), the window title is the number of unread messages. This is useful for titling the inbox, but for messages it's really annoying and useless. I suspect that your developers are so tab-centric that they don't appreciate the way that window-centric people operate.

  7. Folder selection button is not wide enough to see names of folders to put e-mails into on e-mail read view

    When reading an e-mail, there is an action button to select a folder to put it in. However, you made that selection button width smaller to see the name of the folder, so now I can only see 15 characters which is not enough to see which folder to put it in, since the first 15 characters were the same across multiple folders - where the third word that was just past 15 characters is what was different.

    In the old view, I could see the different folders to select. Also, hovering over the folder doesn't tell me the name…

  8. The buttons on the bottom of the e-mail list are not connected to the bottom of the e-mail list, since the folders I have is bumping them

    The buttons on the bottom of the e-mail list are not connected to the bottom of the e-mail list, since the folders I have on the left are bumping the buttons under the e-mail list down many pages further in blank space to the bottom of the e-mail list page. So, there is essentially no buttons at the bottom of the list of e-mails forcing you to scroll all the way up to the top to use any buttons.

  9. Put buttons on the bottom of e-mail list so that you can change pages and delete e-mails without having to scroll to the top of the page

    Put the buttons back on the bottom of the e-mail list so that you can change pages or delete e-mails without having to scroll all the way back up to the top of the page. This used to be possible. People read top down. After managing the first page of e-mails, I want to go to the next page - but now I am forced to scroll back up to the top to do any actions. Poor user design.

  11. Thanks Yahoo. Now I cannot delete messages I do not want. Bring back what works.

    This is complete ****. Guess Yahoo is forcing me to go to Big Brother Gmail as much as I did not want to.

  19. FY2021. Yahoo email: a case study of forgotten technology companies.

    Unreliable email service after more than 20 years? Losing touch with your core customer base, or the market demands, will produce long-term results.

    Consider a few other (now-defunct) technology leaders Radio Shack, Worldcom, Blackberry and Compaq. All former giants who once defined their markets.
