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. For password or sign-in feedback or suggestions, click here.
  4. Please do not post personal information (such as email addresses, phone numbers or names) on the forum.

  2. New email sucks.

    Your new email sucks. I like the older version. Why? It's simple. Why complicate simple things for the sake of "changing things up". Make things easier to use, not more difficult. It's just email. It's not like you are trying to make a rocket to go to the moon.

  5. It didn't need fixing and I didn't ask you to switch me over. It looks like ****, what's with the fat lines they remind me of first grade

    This doesn't improve anything for me, I'm at a loss to how this improves things for you. I don't like it, and I don't like having to hover over your friggen arrows (among other things) to find out how to reply. Switch me back.......This time it's my request
    P.S. My first guess is you're doing away with Yahoo Mail and want us to move over to G-mail or Outlook. Why not just say so?

  6. The Search Box pulls up my email, not the item that I'm searching for - USELESS

    The search box pulls up my email, not what i'm searching for. It does not work. This negatively affects my business. It sucks. Get rid of it and give us back what we had a couple months ago. Waste of time and money. I don't know how many more yahoo changes I can endure. Its a miracle me and my business have survived this long with yahoo changes for the worse.

  12. Please have an option for user to switch Yahoo back to classic look. The new one has too many colors and it is very difficult to read.

    Please have an option for user to switch Yahoo back to classic look. The new one has too many colors and it is very difficult to read. Do not copycat the new hotmail.com look and feel. Thank you.

  16. Change the interface back to the way it was!

    Change the Yahoo! Mail Pro interface back, it was fine the way it was! Now I don't have my tabbed interface where I could switch between e-mails, my background images are gone, and the folders have lost functionality! Epic fail Yahoo!

  17. Get rid of this new inbox look and put my account back on the previous (this is NOT the newest email, by the way)

    This new look to the "Classic" email does NOT help. Put it back the way it was!!! (as it is on my other daily Yahoo account)
