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.

  1. Go back to the old yahoo.

    Every time I switch to old yahoo, as soon as I leave that screen you switch me back to the new, worthless, difficult to read and totally unwanted new yahoo. Why can't I stay with old yahoo! Are you trying to force me to go somewhere else? Like GMAIL or somebody else? I've never used any email but yahoo but your stupid insistence on switching me back to the new and much worse yahoo makes me angry. After reading pages of posts regarding your changes I have yet to see any post here that likes your new, messed-up yahoo. That…

  2. Your new email sucks. Let us switch back to the older and better email.

    Your new email sucks. The older email is easier to use. Why make these more complicated when you should be trying to make things more simpler. Have you ever heard about the word, "science"? In science, scientists always try to make scientific theories as simple as possible. Scientists are rewarded for simplifying scientific theories and ideas.

    When you reply to an email, and are looking at the incoming email, you FORCE US to click on a lick to see the email text. You are making Yahoo email more difficult by FORCING US TO CLICK ON A LINK to see the…

  3. New email is broken.

    The buttons to select all and delete emails no longer works, making the new email worthless. I have been contemplating leaving yahoo, and this has made up my mind for me.

  4. Having to switch back to the old version every time I open up mail is a royal pain. Please stop trying to force the new version on me.

    My other account is able to stick to the classic version just fine, but this one keeps defaulting to an uglier version and I have to switch the classic every time I check mail. If you want to have an updated version for people who like it then sure, but stop messing with my account. How many times do I have to ask to move back to the classic version before I can stick to it?

  6. Did you have to change basic Yahoo mail just for the sake of change? There's nothing "improved" about the new version.

    Did you have to change basic Yahoo mail just for the sake of change? There's nothing "improved" about the new version. In fact, so far it's very glitchy.

  7. When unread emails (in the Inbox list) are selected with the checkbox and the delete button clicked, the messages are not deleted

    In the inbox that shows a list of emails, if an unread email is selected using the checkbox and the "Delete" button clicked, the selected email is not deleted. In the "old"/previous version (yesterday), in the Inbox list, a user could select unread emails using the checkbox, then click on "Delete" button at the top, and the emails would be deleted. This no longer works (at least using Chrome).

  9. Get the option for classic back ASAP. The new versions *suck* they are horrible.

    You are forcing everyone to "upgrade" to a new version of yahoo, all of which are horrible. Everyone wants "classic' back, at the VERY LEAST, make that option available again.

  14. Change the email back to how it used to be.

    Why the **** are you making Yahoo email more difficult to use? When I hit reply, to see the previous message or messages, I have to click on a link called, "Show original message". You are increase my unpaid labor hours to use Yahoo email.

    What is wrong with your brains? It is time to fire the management in charge of Yahoo email. People working for multi-billion dollar companies should be fired when they make applications more difficult to use and wastes the user's unpaid labor hours to use the application.

    Managers for multibillion dollar corporations should only be rewarded…

  18. You can improve it by putting back the old version! I do not WANT you to fix it. It was not broken.

    You screwed up the "send message" thing. I don't want to go back to the message; I want to go back to my inbox like I always have.

    When I want to forward a message, I want to delete some of it. But I can't change a word without the pop-up that warns me otherwise. What is your problem??

    You messed up the font and the spacing of my signature.

  19. I hate the new email! Where is the option in "help" to change back? NOT THERE. Tired of switching back every time I log in. It is ****

    Yahoo can improve the email interface by putting the settings icon back where it was so I can switch back to the classic email permanently. The help page is incorrect. The icon is not available

  20. Give me back my old Yahoo Mail. Why did you change everything without bothering to ask me first? Very rude!

    Your "new" mail is trash. I'm thinking about leaving Yahoo forever, and that would be YOUR fault! Sad...
