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. Once you have a "BLOCKED ADDRESS", then it should be just that, BLOCKED. I have blocked 20 addresses and I am still getting mail from them.

    If you have a "BLOCKED ADDRESS" then it should be blocked. I have added 20 email addresses into the BLOCKED ADDRESSES and I am still getting email from the same blocked addresses. WTF Yahoo.

  4. Ads

    You charge company's to put Ads on, then you bombard us with those Ads and then you charge us for taking the Ads off but not entirely because we still see some Ads.....you act like your doing us a favor but what you forget is that we didn't ask for the Ads to begin with! Really....NOT in my world! I'll stick with Classic and that way I don't have to deal with STUPID which is most Advertising now a days!

  5. drop that **** privacy agreement screen

    I have scrolled down and agreed with your new privacy situation. I will stop using Yahoo mail as my primary email if you do not stop posting it in my screen. I have other things to do than to click through that ****.And no, I will not change my computer settings for you so that I might stop seeing that screen.

  6. Yahoo just changed me to a lousy, old-fashioned, crummy email system. Give back to me what I had.

  8. Smart View vs. Basic

    I have to use Basic Mail because the new Yahoo Mail lacks critical customization, such as removing Smart Views. What idiot came up with that

  12. 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.

  13. You need to show us how to delete our account, since your new "privacy" terms are terrible.

    Your claim of protecting our privacy is a fraud. We should have an easy way to delete our account, and all of our email history, without having to fly to New York for "arbitration".

  14. Are u deliberately dnloading ads to force upgrading? Most ppl enjoy basic...pls fix your ads!!

    If it's NOT broke....stop trying to fix it! Elderly ppl like myself enjoy simplicity. Those who want the change will get it, but Classic IS classic and does what I need

  17. Put my email back to the way it was this morning!!!!!! I did NOT ask for the new version and the "Basic" version now isn't what it was.

    not only did you switch my email to the new version without my consent, but when I switched back to Basic, it still isn't the way it was this morning.

  18. Restore Classic Mail

    I opened my mail this morning and some person completely changed Classic Mail. Are you people really this stupid as to keep changing what works and your users like or are you trying to make us abandon Yahoo and go to Gmail or another mail server? Because that is what is going to happen. The changes are so bad that your New Yahoo Mail looks more like the Classic Mail than the Classic Mail looks now.
