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.

  12. Spam

    not sure what you have done but my Spam box when from having 4-5 items in spam every 2-3 days to all of a sudden 40-50 spams per day. Did you get hacked or somehow release our email addresses to. Absolutely ridiculous the type of spam I have been getting.

  16. 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.

  18. Please help us get back the previous version.

    Help! We switched to the new Yahoo Mail and didn't like it. We tried to switch back to the previous version that we had and got Basic Mail. We wanted to land in between, which is where we were. Please help us restore what we had. We think that was Classic Mail. Thank you.
