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.

    • Yahoo Mail doesn't work with Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10 Anniversary Release - only shows the basic user experience

      Internet Explorer 11 must have a new browser version in the latest Windows 10 release that just came out (1607 release). Yahoo Mail does not even offer the ability to go to the full mail interface - it just defaults to the basic interface.

          • STOP BADGERING ME for "Mandatory Phone Number" and "New Password"! I will NEVER comply with such REPETITIVE BULLYING by Yahoo!

            Which part of the word NO do you NOT UNDERSTAND Yahoo...
            WE DO NOT WANT TO BE "REMINDED" BECAUSE WE ARE NOT IDIOTS!!!! We have CHOSEN NOT to furnish you with a "Mandatory Phone Number" because we NEVER want to recieve texts from you and it is an invasion of our PRIVACY. No wonder you have had such trouble offloading your company onto a new buyer... YOU don't listen to your customers!

              • Restore My Full Featured Mail In IE11

                RESTORE My Full Featured Mail In IE11 on Windows 10. I've been using Win. 10 & IE11 for two months with no problem, until I logged on this morning & found I was stuck with Basic Mail (went through the same problem in 2014). Do the Right Thing Again This Time & RESTORE FULL FEATURED MAIL, & STOP making people go through this.

                IE11 Is STILL A SUPPORTED Browser because Microsoft said they still support it. YOU LIED When you told me on Twitter it was no longer supported. Restore Full Featured Mail that you took away from all of…

                              • Put login and password back on same page, single click please.

                                Put login page back the way it was. Single click for login. NOT one for id another for password. Every extra key stroke is a major pain **********!

                                  • I have tried and tried (etc) to delete my yahoo account. It does not recognize my password (even though it works to sign in). Hate Yahoo

                                    I have a terrific idea. How about letting people close their accounts if they want to! I have tried multiple times to close my account with my valid password and with the obnoxious audio verify and it doesn't recognize me (even though I am logged into the account) and will not close it. I want it closed. How about closing it!

                                    • im not sure why you all dont have a delete all button on emails instead of us deleting 20 at a time i would like to delete them all at once

                                      have a delete all button so we have that option instead of going thru 50 at a time. takes up to much time when you can install a delete all button and zap there gone
