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. Where did the"mood" images, faces go? I always use them. Also the types of font with color?

    Although the improvements are okay what is lacking--font, color, mood faces, are missed. Size of font has decreased and printing option is not easily seen.

  4. Narrow the side ad again and lose the purple-colored one at the top.

    I'd actually like to be able to see emails, rather then have them covered or scrunched up (and the flashing/animated ones have to go--very ******* the eyes), and if I get a virus or malware on my computer because I accidentally clicked on the purple one, there will be trouble.

    I understand you need ads for the revenue but this is getting ridiculous. (and I wouldn't pay $50 for the "privilege" of no ads, especially considering the feedback I've seen here. They pay and they pay and yet there are still ads)

  9. 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!

  13. if I click spam and deleted them,why do the same spam mail reappear days later.

    if I deleted spam,it should mean,never see come thru my email "permantely"..I'm tired of receiving "exoctic/****** adv "spams". I guess I must contact CNN/MSBC/.Yahoo needs some fine tunning in regards to "PREFERENCES".

  19. The moving ads on the sides causes the email to freeze intermittently. This makes composing emails extremely difficult!

    Get rid of the moving ads on the sides which cause the email site to freeze intermittently. Among other things, this makes composing emails extremely difficult! When I am trying to type an email, the keyboard freezes every time each ad loads. It takes forever to finally type a single word. Horrible!
