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.

  4. Please change Classic Layout back to the way it was!

    If the New email layout for Basic/Classic mail has actually been that way for the last 2-3 months, then 1.) I've been living under a rock and 2.) How come you haven't changed it back to the Layout it used to be???

    Honestly, it should NOT take that long to change it back to the Old layout after tons and tons of feedback from other Yahoo users on here who ALL want the same thing which is: The Real Basic view for Classic Mail...NOT this new format.

  10. Why can't you just leave well enough alone. Why do your IT people need to constantly change that which is working for us. I DON'T LIKE!

    LEAVE IT ALONE! I want to go back to the traditional format but can't seem to get it done. What your IT people consider good is NOT what I consider good. Plus, your leftist comments on the home page are not appreciated.

  16. Leave it alone, and put it back to original format.

    Improvement was never needed. I agree with everyone that says they don't like it either. Why did you change it? Things that don't need improvement should be LEFT ALONE.

  17. You don't need to improve Yahoo Mail. Leave it the way it is NOW.

    You don't have to improve Yahoo Mail. As you read from the feedback of everyone, we are happy with the way it was before. If anyone wants to improve, thay have the choice to switch to Advance Yahoo mail. Please don't force us to use the improve Yahoo Mail we hate.

  18. THE CONSENSUS SEEMS TO BE THE NEW VERSION IS BAD. HAVING TO SELECT "GO BACK TO OLD VERSION" IS A HASSLE.

    ALLOW USERS TO PERMANENTLY SELECT OLD VERSION INSTEAD OF HAVING TO SELECT IT EVERY TIME ONE OPENS EMAIL.
