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.

  2. I want my classic back!

    Much easier to navigate between multiple yahoo accounts and I like the red dot indicator for when I receive an email.

    The phone no I have on account is 86-9999999999 It does not let me delete the phone no & keeps saying it would send a code to this ph no. Every body does not have a phone. Phones can be hacked too. Phones don't work when you are traveling Internationally. I would prefer to go back to Q & Answer to prove. Today I was able to log in with luck so I am writing to you. I was not able to log in for a long time

  6. Arrow Keys to go to the Next or Previous Email

    In the new email, which is horrible, when you do a search and pull up emails, you can't just use the arrow keys to go to the next or previous email in the search. You have to go back out to the search list and click on the next or previous email. TAKES FOREVER and I don't have that kind of time when I'm trying to get work done.

  11. Stop being dictatorial towards account holders don't deny their privileges or phase out accounts.

    change your policy about naggingly requesting sign-ins as it disrupts the momentum of account holders' smooth operations in how they use email. Let them have access to their passwords without the usual harangue.
    Its a consternation and frustrating.Recently I was pulling hairs trying to open my email as Yahoo kept putting obstacles in front of me-For what purpose ?Its baffling and ludicrous !!!!
