Yahoo Mail Basic

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.

Tell us how we can improve your Yahoo Mail – Basic experience. The more specific your feedback, the more useful for us. While we can’t respond to every suggestion, we review regularly and take them very seriously. Our Guidelines have more on how you can give great feedback.

          • Give a phone number or "contact us" so people can talk to a person who can talk them through their problems

            Give your users a phone # so they can talk to a real person who may be able to talk them through their problems instead of users having to read through 10's or 100's of other users answers which may not help them at all. Having yahoo, with no tech help or people to talk to makes users feel you are leaving them out to dry and don't care weather their problems get fixed or not.

                        • Change my home page back!!! I do not like this new format...

                          I hate this new format, it was much easier and organized the old way. This new format looks so disorganized and sloppy. I want my old home page back like it used to be. I have been with yahoo for many years and plan to stay, but I wish things would go back as before.

                                  Please allow me to jump to a specific page. I have hundreds of pages of emails and I can only move to a specific page one page at a time. I'd like to be able to enter a number, such as "25" and go directly to page 25 of my emails.
