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.

  6. You need to lose the "new and ******" email page. Don't need it, don't want it, and I will change it every time back to the original.

    Fire the retards that think changing things for the sake of change is a brilliant way to look busy in their cubes. They're a waste of your resources and money and will drive your customers away.

  17. With the switch, can't click on address from prior email to send message...

    It is impressive how disruptive of daily living the switch to the basic version has turned out to be. Replying and forwarding do odd formatting of the email, so that it looks a mess. The lack of continuous email exchanges fouls legislative communication. The type is too thin and light. There is no amount of money to pay to have the Classic, is there. -- Even here, even though already signed in to my email account, I have to sign in on this page?

  18. GO BACK TO THE BASIC VERSION OF YAHOO MAIL OR GIVE AN OPTION!

    Your new version of Yahoo Mail is H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E!!!!! Why would you take away something that has worked for so many years and try to fix it with garbage??? At least give the option to use the Basic Mail....the new version is so really pathetic!!!
