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. 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

  2. Is there a way to go back to the old yahoo email? If so, tell me how!

    Tell me how to go back to the old yahoo email because I really hate what you have done to create this new and worthless yahoo email. It hursts my eyes and is difficult to search, etc. Get the good old yahoo email back! Or do I have to find another email, say gmail or one of those. Whatever is most like the old yahoo email.

  6. Go to the masthead and to the LEFT of "Sign Out" there is 'Account Inf' - it is a drop down box; the bottom choice is "Go to old version".

    Go to the masthead and to the LEFT of "Sign Out" there is 'Account Inf' - it is a drop down box; the bottom choice is "Go to old version".

    Choose that and use the "GO" button on the right.

    Just be aware, I have used that EVERY time I have signed in and Yahoo keeps changing it back.

  8. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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"?
