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.

                              • The basic version of Yahoo is still awful and worse all the time. Now I can't switch at all between basic and full at all.

                                I can't switch from the basic (which is terrible and nothing like Yahoo Mail Classic which was great before they changed it) and the full featured version which allows me to send photos and text together in the body of the email. We're trying to send out an email newsletter and after we do a webpage with photos and text - I can't put it in the email as my account won't switch to full featured. Not only that when we use another computer, Yahoo puts boxes around everything and it looks awful.

                                Yahoo there are so many, many, many…

                                    • Ridiculous that I have to verify my identity every time I visit my hometown in MExico

                                      I think that just putting in my password is just enough to verify who I am..no one else knows it..I have to go through a message verification and my cell phone does not work here or a verification code in my hotmail..Why should I have to go through this every time?
