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.

  2. Please STOP changing my Yahoo email version. I like the OLD version. Extremely annoying when you change version without my consent

    Leave it alone. People like the OLD version as can be seen by the many, many responses here. Please do not force changes on your loyal users. Give us the option to try something new if you must. But changing it without our consent causes anxiety and makes us think about leaving Yahoo. Everybody on the planet is not 20 or 25 years old, and does not believe that constant change is always good. Stability is what many of us want. We do not want to have to find settings that have been relocated, or to learn a new user…

    Allow return to full featured classic email. The new email is missing features and difficult to read. It sucks.

  6. I HATE the latest version of Yahoo! mail.

    When I tried to switch back to classic mail I returned to some watered down bastardized version. Give me back my old Yahoo! mail that I have used for the last several years or I will not use any version of your mail client.

  7. Change back the email

    I like the basic version just how it is. It is too hard to read the new version and it is not easy to learn new things for us older people. Each time I go to my email I have to change back to the basic. Why does it not stay there?

  9. Stop switching me to the new version without my permission

    Do not automatically change my old version to the new version. And do not change it after I have switched it back to the old version over 40 times. Also, your details on how to keep my old version from switching to the new version are not effective. I do not have the drop down menu items that you say that I need to have in order to make the old version permanent.

  16. Please stop the annoying phone verification.

    Like most people I talk to, I am using other email servers. This phone thing drives me crazy. You will learn after you lose your advertising revenue and no one uses it any longer.

  18. If you would just go back to the old colors and letter styles, maybe the new version would be okay!

    If you would just go back to the old colors and letter style then the new version might be acceptable to us! The new colors are hard to pick up and tend to look like neon colors which takes longer to use. It all blends together.
