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.

  1. It is unacceptable for you to steal 1/3 of my screen for ads. Ever.

    It is unacceptable for you to steal 1/3 of my screen for ads. Ever. I am tired of perpetually being pushed to tolerate more and more. If the future of Yahoo Mail is primarily about ads and not email, I am out of here... There are numerous other options.

  7. 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.

  16. 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.
