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.

  3. When someone selects "Go Back to Old Version" make it permanent!

    If I select "Go Back to Old Version" that means I prefer the old version. Stop changing it back after I sign out!!!!!

  4. I wish you would just leave everything alone! I do not understand why you have to change things when nothing is broken!

    It is just getting old with you changing all the time. I DO NOT WANT THE NEW VERSION. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK OR MAYBE WE ALL NEED TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE OR START OUR OWN EMAIL. WHAT DOES EVERYONE THINK ON THAT?

  5. STOP CHANGING MAIL! Improve by firing the one(s) who changed it!

  6. Your new mail doesn't work, I can't delete anything. Switch back to old email

    The new email does not work. I cannot delete emails. Switch back. Why change something that works. Change is not always good. Now it does not work.

  7. Ask us first before you change something on our e-mail. We might not want it changed.

    Why is my birthday stated on my account information. I don't want
    my birthday made public anywhere on the internet or in my e-mail.
    It's no one else's business including yours. You did not ask me first.

  8. Allow users to revert back to "classic yahoo mail"

    The delete button doesn't work! I have to open each mail I want to delete? I get tons of email every day, and I don't have time to open them all! Please at least allow an option to revert back to the "classic Yahoo mail" that most yahoo mail-users use every day, and have come to count on!

  9. Allow us to KEEP the old version when we choose to go back to it.

    It is more than a little annoying that you included (sometimes) a "go back to old version" option, but as soon as I sign out I'm returned to the new version. It is amazing that Yahoo continues to challenge loyal users to stay with them, even these days.

    Pay attention to your users. This new look is awful, inconvenient, and a pain in the neck. You have to search at the bottom for the little button to go to the next page. There is no button to go directly to 2, 3, or 4, etc. Not to mention ugly, with the various shades of blue and purple it is difficult to read. Don't you know that blue is difficult for readers with color blindness? Your people don't seem to know what they are doing, every new version gets worse.

  11. Go back to the way it was.

    Under my account it lets me go to the old Yahoo email, but when I leave that and then come back, it has switched to the horrible, very user-unfriendly new yahoo you are forcing on us. How do I make it stay with the old Yahoo? Please let me know very soon before I change to a different email in desperation. I went through at least 7 pages of comments and no one liked your new version. So give us back the old version before we all switch to something else

  12. i like the old version better .

    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

  15. Now I can't block the spammers!!! I am beginning to hate Yahoo mail!

    Stop changing it to where spammers can't be blocked. I am about to stop using Yahoo and just use my Gmail and AT&T emails for all my business.
