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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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

  8. Actually sorting mail so we can clean it up!!

    I have over 30,000 emails and am almost never on a computer (I use my iPhone XS Max) so I decided to get on my laptop to clean some unwanted emails out and surprise! Yahoo changed it so that you can't even properly sort by sender, nothing is in order and it's a hassle. It wasn't broke why mess with it??

  9. To improve Yahoo email...

    After 20+ years, I'm going to find a new mail service. Trying to reply to an email, while using quotes from within the previous message, is a nightmare and yahoo is no longer worth the hassle. And I can't send active links? Brilliant call there, folks...

    "Yahoo" is actually a pretty good name for these guys...a bunch of yahoos...

  12. STOP changing the email format. I love the "old version" of Yahoo. why can't it stay there instead of what you have

    STOP changing the email format. I love the "old version" of Yahoo. why can't it stay there instead of what you have. it doesn't make it any better. and if we like the older versions why can't we just have it stay there. let people "pick" if they want to upgrade to the newer version

  15. Restore Classic Mail please

    I depend on Yahoo Basic Mail for my correspondence needs and use the classic or basic version that existed till earlier this week till around May 27, 2019. Please give it back to me. I plead with you. I use this on a laptop with Windows and screen reading software.
    I do not need any advanced features or connectivity with social media. Just ability to send and receive text email and attach files / download attachments.
    From an accessibility standpoint, please spare users from unexpected page refreshes and advertisements when using basic / classic Yahoo Mail.
    The version presented now…
