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! should have a feature that EASILY blocks unwanted mail

                  Yahoo! should have a feature that EASILY blocks unwanted mail, like spam. At this point the "block mail" process is convoluted and inefficient. My sense is that Yahoo! receives revenue from spam and has no interest in stopping it.

                  • I certainly wish my account could just be reset to the way it was before the changes took affect.

                    Maybe ask before you decide to make changes. These new changes has cost me a significant amount of time and aggravation....

                    I really wish I could reset my account to exactly the way it was just a couple weeks ago!

                      Try listening to the people that help pay your salaries.
