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.

    IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT.......there was nothing wrong with it except that there are idiots that think they know what is best for everyone.

  2. At least have it function and work. Can't even delete emails! Switch me back!

    Why wasn't I provided the option to accept the change? If it isn't broken. . .don't fix it is what I believe in.

    Go back to original version. Much easier to use and view. In addition, the new one set today, DOES NOT WORK! I am stumped and stopped from using right now!

  6. I am not able to send group emails from my list of groups in my contacts.

    Please go back to old format. The new one seems like something from ancient times instead of modern. Cannot perform needed functions. Cannot edit or send emails to groups.

  7. i like the old version better .

    its difficult for me to attach files now. the old version was a simpler drag and drop, also when I'm viewing my email id rather one scroll down as opposed to clicking the next page

  9. Version selection

    When you select a version of Mail, have the selection saved instead of reverting back to the version you DON"T WANT.

  10. 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…

  11. we need the "next" and "previous" buttons back!

    Just that, let us go directly from one message to the previous one or tha last one again. What's the point of removing those options?

    HATE the forced changes in Yahoo Mail. How do I get back the look and feel of my old Mail? WHY would you do something like this when obviously most people don't like the change? Give us back what we had and liked!

  15. Leave the old email version alone. This one doesn't even bring up addresses when you start to enter a name. It is a pain and its stupid.

    Leave it alone. The addresses not coming up after typing a couple characters is stupid and time consuming. I will use another company for my email if it remains like this.

  19. Restore the Old Classic Email Client or I'm Leaving for Good!

    The new Classic Email client does not fully work in my browser. The scroll down is browken such that when I type below the visible text window when composing an email, I can not see what I'm typing. One can not compose without seeing what they're typing.

    I CAN NOT afford to upgrade my browser as it requires me to upgrade my OS, which requires me to buy a new computer, which I can not afford to do! Which means it can't be done, nor am I interested in doing so anyway.

    The full featured client does work, but is…
