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.

  7. Option to change themes and colors is missing

    After some an hour of reading and answering email, the bright white background is too much to handle, specially for people with certain visual impediments. Please bring back to option to change colors and themes.

  8. Screen your ads please. Or give an X so we can delete it.

    Jet.com ads feature sexually positioned ladies. My kids see that. There is no way to delete it. I am not against ads, sometimes I see something interesting and I click it. But you should make the software so that if I don't click on it, or CERTAINLY if I can click it off, I'm not interested in that ad, please don't show it again. I have no idea what magazines featuring ladies in undies bend over a car spread eagle or one holding her naked breasts has to do with Jet.com but I will never go to that webpage to…

  16. I hate the newest version. I can't block spam, not enough colors to pick and the trash shouldn't be to the right, I deleted the wrong mail.

    New version is bad; Can't Block Spam, Trash can s/b on the left not the right, I deleted the wrong mail and not enough themes to pick from. I want my Classic back, not Basic.

  18. Switch Back to Old Version is incomplete. I have to key in complete email address HELP

    It didn't completely switch back to the old version and now I have to key in the complete email address where it would type ahead. I have to scroll through the complete Contact List for each one on my list. Contact list is a pain in the **** to use
