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.

  3. This new version completely sucks!

    This new version completely sucks! It's a lie that we can change back--there is no option! 20 years with Yahoo but I am done. Every change makes it worse and this is the last straw. If Yahoo wants to change they should revert to the email of about 3 generations back.

    Stop messing with my email. Every few months I get locked out either because yahoo claims there was "suspicious activity" or pretends not to recognize my computer, the same computer I ALWAYS sign in with. Sometimes it takes an hour or two, sometimes it takes a few days to get back in. I'm starting to think I need a non yahoo address for a backup, but if that's the case why bother with a yahoo address at all?

  10. if I click spam and deleted them,why do the same spam mail reappear days later.

    if I deleted spam,it should mean,never see come thru my email "permantely"..I'm tired of receiving "exoctic/****** adv "spams". I guess I must contact CNN/MSBC/.Yahoo needs some fine tunning in regards to "PREFERENCES".

  12. Yahoo mail just simply sucks. You people have no idea what you are doing. Hire some people from Google and fire the ones you have now.

    Stop doing upgrades and just simply fix the one you have. The "upgrades" always SUCK and break things. Y'all don't have a clue what you are doing. Don't upgrade this **** just because you can.

  13. accept the fact new mail is terrible and be brave enough to accept direct communication instead of "B.S. Forum"

    Take direct communication instead of B.S. Forum on new mail. It's terrible. Stop making me reload basic mail every day. Don't improve basic. It's fine as it is.

  14. Give us back the old Yahoo Mail. This new version sucks! I kept bypassing the upgrade option but you forced it on me anyway.

    Stop forcing new versions on us and making things harder to find as well as things slowing down when navigating. Give me back my old email. I did not have to jump through a bunch of hoops to access all my bookmarks. The new email sucks. Change for the sake of change is a bad thing. Change that improves things is good. Stop making changes that were not needed.

  15. How can I add a new contact to my contact list? dsbunn@yahoo.com

    Need to add a new contact? There is no place for this. What's has happened to Yahoo? I don't want to change my email, but I will have no other course of action if I can't add contacts. It is my sister I want to add, so this is VERY Important!!! dsbunn@yahoo.com

  18. Stop trying to force me in to using an email format that doesn't work and I don't need. I do not need pretty pictures and streaming videos.

    I do not want ned or like flashy pretty OOOOOHHHH LOOOOKIE email. I do not have a smart phone and I would never use it to check email if I did. You are useing extortion to try to make me switch by making my email page take F O R E V E R to load and then tell me to load basic if it is too slow. Gmail is looking better and better all the time and I Hate Gmail.
