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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

    Regardless of what you do, your user name remains. How do I delete that? Security issue.

  11. Email

    I have received 2 notifications that email account under the penname "one_hot_flame@yahoo.com" is to be deactivated in one hour after opening the email. I only use this to talk to people or answer other ads. If it is to be deactivated for some reason or has been hacked then maybe I need to seek legal advice because I have had this account since the mid 90's. Let me know where I stand on this isswue!

  13. 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!

  14. I don't know why but EVERY time i try to log into my yahoo account, it tells me my password is incorrect. I have changed my password and ims

    I don't know why but EVERY time I try to log into my yahoo account, it tells me my password is incorrect. I have reset password numerous times. I have even tried to immediately log in after changing it only to be told the EXACT same thing......it's incorrect. That is very frustrating and annoying to say the least. Fixing that problem would be a great idea

  17. 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.
