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. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Change back the email

    I like the basic version just how it is. It is too hard to read the new version and it is not easy to learn new things for us older people. Each time I go to my email I have to change back to the basic. Why does it not stay there?

  6. Please stop the annoying phone verification.

    Like most people I talk to, I am using other email servers. This phone thing drives me crazy. You will learn after you lose your advertising revenue and no one uses it any longer.

  9. I need the Classic mail back! The new one & the basic one stink! I can't read the font. It is so small I'm getting a headache !

    The basic has no color control and the screen is hurting my eyes. Between that and the extremely small font, I have a headache just trying to read my emails! You really need to fix this.

  11. get rid of the account key

    Go back to a password only. I cannot be texted as My phone does not work when I am out of the country , which I am now and every year about 3-4 months. The key is a pain **********. I have been with yahoo mail for at least 25 years and am very much considering leaving.

  13. Font is way TOO SMALL!! Fix immediately or we will go to GMAIL!!

    Stop switching our email format! There is NO "settings" icon in the upper right hand corner so I CANNOT switch back! This email account is used for business and we CANNOT READ OUR EMAILS because the font is microscopic!!!!
