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. 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.

  2. 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

  7. Stop the ads! They take up my mail viewing space on the page, constantly blinking and I CAN'T hardly see my mail to read. It's so annoying!

    At least make the ads smaller and the mail viewing page larger. It's supposed to be about our email, not 100 ads popping up. If we wanted to see advertising we could go on the web or something. It's rediculous and makes even wanting to go to my yahoo email at home a dread. I really hate it! I would rather view my mail on my phone. Just simple. How much is enough guys? Really? Where's the focus, on the mail customers or the advertising because I feel I'm being bombarded by ads blinking up constantly all over every single…

  9. Trashy, dating, etc. sites

    For the last six months or so they all kinds of trashy sites keep coming in on my email. Got to click the box 2 times to spam them but they are right back the next day with another new one. Spam doesn't do any good. Any suggestions....deleting yahoo is my suggestion.

  11. Switching back to BASIC is ****, I SAVE the setting EVERYTIME and it NEVER WORKS!!!! **** **** ****!!!

    Make the Save botton work in the Ymail SETTINGS.
    Or just remove the Classic option alltogether it is SLOW and it irritates.

    what use is a SAVE button when it never remembers the setting.

  12. REMOVE

    REMOVE suggestive, ****** ad pictures that are automatically placed onto in-box! Regardless of orientation or viewpoint, this type of ad is not welcome or appropriate.
