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.

              • Please stop posting inappropriate ads for me to meet men or women and ads for medications targeted at the elderly

                I'm OK with retail ads or movie ads, but PLEASE STOP inappropriate ads for singles, dating, and elderly health issues that I see almost every time I open my Yahoo mail. I'm so sick of seeing these types of ads. I am happily married and don't want to meet any women or men. I may be over 50, but I'm fit and healthy with no interest in medications for any health issues. It is insulting to be on the receiving end of an ad that seems designed to take advantage of the vulnerable lonely and the elderly. Please stop it.
