Is this new version a work in progress? every few months you change something? are we testing the change for you? It's not my job test out your tweaks. Give me the previous version.
Why is everything so tiny? It takes me longer to do things in Mail because I have to point to the exact tiny space to do anything. Gives me eye strain as well. Want to make the layout uncluttered? Get rid of the ads. They don't belong in Mail. If that's too much work, just let me use the previous version.
Today Mail was having a seizure again. After I logged in, Inbox flashed once then went blank. I tried to log in 3x with the same result. I had to close Chrome and try again. This never happened in the previous version. Your revamp didn't improve Mail. It's made it worse. Give us the option to use the previous version.
I know you have several feedback forums for this new version. Combine all comments in all forums and you have a common theme. Give us the old version. You're revamp has failed. Why complicate things?
give us the option to use the old version while you're playing around with this new basic. That's what you're doing, right? Because the changes you've made should be scrapped.
Is this your idea of improving Mail? You move the "Send Feedback" link in the dropdown list? That adds 2 unnecessary clicks. Give users the option to use the previous version of Mail. This new version is a waste of time and money.
How long are you going to "gather feedback" before making any noticeable change? Assuming anyone involved in maintaining Mail reads this forum. Aside from functional problems that people have been pointing out, the layout and the overall look of this new mail makes it harder to use. Most users don't have large monitors and high speed internet. You've made the fonts, boxes, folders and even the unnecessary icons tiny. It takes doing things longer because we have to look closely and be precise before clicking. Instead of making mail easier to use, you made it harder.
Many of the cosmetic features in this new basic are unneeded and unwanted. You've hobbled the new basic it's practically useless. The full featured version's layout and design is so bad which makes also unusable. Give us the option to use the old version.
After thousands of feedback, and I know there's another forum of this feedback for older computers, you still haven't listened to your users. Are you so arrogant in your belief that the new version of Basic is the upgrade that Mail needs and people want? You are turning people away. Lose enough users then you'll lose your audience for other services. Then you'll start losing advertisers bec. your numbers aren't what it used to be.
My suggestion on how to improve this new basic is to scrap it and go back to the old/previous version. Whoever was assigned to revamp basic mail or the entire mailbox altogether should be fired. New doesn't mean improved.
One positive thing for today is that the ads won't show. What a relief. I hope this glitch becomes permanent.
Return to the old version. That's how you can improve this new basic. It's too complicated. It slows up everything so it takes me longer to finish.
My eyes get tired from reading a lot of emails. Please give me the option to use Classic. This new version hurts my eyes just to open it. I'm already dizzy being bombarded with colors, pictures and clips from ads and corporate emails.
I always use the Classic, i.e. the simpler version. I rarely use any of your so-called full-featured upgrades. The reason is the simpler, the better. Easier to read, to type, to search and to attach. Why complicate email? It takes longer load and to do anything. It's like writing a letter on paper. It all starts with a blank white page. If I want to add pictures, drawings or colors, then I'd add them. The New Basic Mail is too fussy to be a "simpler" option to the full-featured version.
Let us choose between Classic and the full-featured version. Stop forcing us to use the New Basic. Not everyone has high speed internet and new computers. So providing New Basic as a "simpler" version is useless bec. it doesn't work a well as Classic.
Let people choose the version the want. I want to use the old version. I don't want this New Basic.
Bring back old version or Classic Mail. This new basic mail is trash.
The new basic mail is not an improvement. I will repeat what Anonymous wrote. Bring back classic mail. Or if you still don't understand, the old version.
Trash the new basic mail.
You ask users for comments on how to improve the new basic mail? Then trash this new version. Your made it complicated, ugly and at the same time removed useful features.
To improve the new basic mail is to bring back the old version. This new one is several steps back. It's not an improvement in function and appearance.
Stop forcing the new classic mail on us. We don't need more colors in our email. We want plain text. Some might want color then give them the option to add some where they want it. It's just like ereaders. The plain text only black and white models are popular for a reason. Learn from them.
Bring back the old version. This new classic is less user friendly and it hurts my eyes. Your homepage is easier to read. The server is slower too. I was waiting for an important time sensitive email to appear. I had the email sent a 2nd time bec. the 1st didn't show up. The 1st and 2nd email appeared in my Inbox the following day. You made Yahoo Mail more complicated and it's affected how it works. This is not improvement.
Bring back the old version. This new classic is less user friendly and it hurts my eyes. Your homepage is easier to read. What people need is plain black text on a white page with only a bit of color. If users want more, give them the option to change what they want.
