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.

  8. 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!
