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.

  1. Allow return to full featured classic mail. it had features that the new mail doesn't. Why do you continue to frustrate loyal users forcing

    Allow return to full featured classic email. The new email is missing features and difficult to read. It sucks.

  6. I HATE the latest version of Yahoo! mail.

    When I tried to switch back to classic mail I returned to some watered down bastardized version. Give me back my old Yahoo! mail that I have used for the last several years or I will not use any version of your mail client.

  7. Save Yahoo Classic mail

    I have always enjoyed classic mail and have tried the "new" format and I didn't like it. I can't filter e-mails in the new format and I'm easily able to do so using the classic version. I will strongly consider switching my primary e-mail to another site once Classic mail is discontinued after January 31, 2019. I know many others feel the same way about Yahoo gradually ridding itself of Classic mail from all of the comments on here. I really hope Yahoo will listen to its users and keep Classic mail as an alternative to their new version.

  10. SAVED E-MAILS IN FOLDERS

    HERE IS A GREAT SUGGESTION FOR YOU. I HAVE HUNDREDS OF E-MAILS SAVED IN MY FOLDERS. THEY ARE SAVED BY THE PERSON WHO SENT THE E-MAIL. IF YOU COULD FIND A WAY TO SAVE E-MAILS WITH A NOTE OR SOME IDENTIFYING INFO WHEN YOU SAVE IT TO A FOLDER IT WOULD SO MUCH EASIER TO REVIEW ALL THOSE SAVED E-MAILS IN THE SAME FOLDER !!! FOR EXAMPLE, I SAVED THOUSANDS OF E-MAILS IN A PURCHASES FOLDER. BUT I DO NOT KNOW ANY INFO ABOUT THE E-MAIL OR WHERE TO FIND A PARTICULAR PURCHASE. FIND A WAY DO ADD AN IDENTIFYING…

  17. Apply Yahoo SPAM filter BEFORE my custom filter.

    As of the last week of 2018, my yahoo SPAM is exploding.
    I have several custom filters that catch spammers and they dump to my custom "_SPAM" folder. Then I select all those emails and click "report as spam". However, the process is never ending. My filter is catching spammers BEFORE the Yahoo spam filter!

    Please apply the Yahoo SPAM filter BEFORE delivering mail to my custom filters. Else, I can never stop my custom "_SPAM" folder from filling up.

    Thanks for Yahoo Mail!
