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.

    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?

  6. 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.

  8. I have a problem. When I open a new window the bars show up with nothing in them. They used to tell me which window was what.

    I don't know which is which as I have had 3 different ones!! The first is just a long list of emails, the old version. Another one has popped up with a split screen and I hate it. The third one has a list but all divided according to day/date. I like this one. How can I keep it?

  9. I have never in my life received as much spam as I have over the last 2 months? What's going on. I do not search does companies.

    Spam, over 100 spams in a day. Yet, important emails also go to spam. So I have to waste my time looking through spam so I don't delete or put them on unroll me list which by the way doesn't work. Every day important emails go to my spam. What's up Yahoo? This is so annoying to say the least.

  12. 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.

    I switched back to basic because the new version of mail isn't working correctly, won't let you delete messages, go to compose, move message nothing is working right and have to close page and reopen just to read messages. Need to go back to Classic Mail as nothing works right on the new version of Mail so had to go back to basic just to get it to work!!!

  15. Bring Back Mail BLOCKING

    I am hit every day with SPAM. I mark it as SPAM and that does no good. The "Unsubscribe" links don't work, either. So, how can I stop receiving SPAM from this annoying website? BLOCKING would be helpful since nothing else works.

  17. THIS IS NOT A SUGGESTION BUT A DEMAND!!! BEFORE, I COULD LOOK AT ALL MY EMAIL ACCOUNTS AT ONCE. I DID NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH A TWO DEVICE

    I DON'T LIKE THE "TWO DEVICE" METHOD OF SIGNING INTO EMAIL. I DON'T LIKE SWITCHING SCREENS TO GET A SECURITY CODE TO SIGN IN. MY PASSWORD ISN'T RECOGNIZED ANY MORE. YOU HAVE CHANGED EVERYTHING SO MUCH I'M CONSIDERING DROPPING YAHOO ALL TOGETHER AND GO TO ANOTHER WEB ADDRESS!!!!!

  19. Disaster policy

    After Hurricane Katrina I couldn't get online for several months. Yahoo policy for non use of account for a month deleted all my saved mail and contacts heaping unnecessary loss on top of disaster loss. Now there are several disasters and millions of people facing loss they don't even know about. I hope you are considering your disaster response situation.
