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.

  4. When using Ctrl P to print an email the add is included on the right side and over the right side of the email. WHY?

    Either place the ads at the top of the page and when using Ctrl P do not include the add at the right side of the page.

  13. Allow me to scroll through the ads on the right side of the screen.

    A number of times I have clicked an email to read it when the ad on the right side of the screen changed to something I might want to read. Allow me some means to scroll through the ads manually.

  18. I don't mind ads until they take up part of message and I can't read my it!

    I told you to cut back on the size of the ad. I know you must have them but if they block the email they are too big!
    Now I have another problem with the ads; they are coming on over the area I am suppose to have to get to the next idem.
    I don't think you will change or even answer; so I must lost yahoo in favor of another service.

  19. gmail will earn another customer. Yahoo ads are a money grab on our convenience.

    here is an idea. instead of making money just to bnombard the screen with ads, why not give a choice to view ads, or delete the moment t
    they appear? yahoo needs more money for what? gmail here I come.
    after years of enjoying yahoo, they take our preference mail and change to another "new" mail that absolutely no one likes.
    Time to put your thinking caps on yahoo
