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. This new page set-up is TERRIBLE.

    TOO MANY problems to list. For example: "Delete" cannot be accessed unless I go back to the top & find it --- every time! It's ridiculous. I've been w/ Yahoo for many years, but I'm "this close" to changing. This is STUPID.

  6. Do NOT AUTOMATICALLY EMPTY TRASH FOLDER!!! I absolutely cannot STAND this flippin feature! Please..

    Whenever I end up needing an email I deleted, I cant go back and retrieve it..why? Because my Trash folder is automatically emptied. I am hoping you can retrieve my recent DRAFT email that I SAVED and cannot find. Im ****** because I needed that. If its not retrieved and the possibility of the auto Emptying of the Trash folder not being resolved. Im so gone. We need room for error and automatically deleting stuff takes away the second chance most of us need.

  7. I hate what you did, I can't select all and make a folder delete. I think you people need to stop trying to improve something that worked.

    I can't stand this classic and totally hate the new Yahoo Mail. Time to switch mail systems. I want user friendly not how to make your life miserable in 50 hundred steps. Good grief what were you people thinking? I can't select all to delete a folder. Whats with that? If it ain't broke, leave it alone. Yahoo you suck now..

  8. Where did the"mood" images, faces go? I always use them. Also the types of font with color?

    Although the improvements are okay what is lacking--font, color, mood faces, are missed. Size of font has decreased and printing option is not easily seen.

  12. fix search so it once again searches all emails in your acct.

    Currently we are unable to search more than a few days back in our mail box. Does it have anything to do with how much you have in your storage? We need access to some tech support. Quick fix does nothing for us and there is no place to send in what our problem actually is to get an answer.

  14. I'm tired of Yahoo suggesting that I change my password and add a mobile number each time I log-in.

    I'm tired of Yahoo suggesting that I change my password and add a mobile number each time I log-in. If someone hacks into my account it won't be because I compromised my account. Also, my mobile number is none of Yahoo's business. In fact, the more personal info you (Yahoo) has on hand...the easier it is for my identity to be compromised, STOP THIS!!! And, when I try to access my email account on my smartphone via the mobile site, Yahoo won't allow me. It's blocking my log-in in order to push me to download the app. I don't want…

  17. 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.

  19. Ridiculous that I have to verify my identity every time I visit my hometown in MExico

    I think that just putting in my password is just enough to verify who I am..no one else knows it..I have to go through a message verification and my cell phone does not work here or a verification code in my hotmail..Why should I have to go through this every time?
