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.

  3. Yahoo mail is infuriating!

    Yahoo mail has asked me to change my password three times this past week and has failed repeatedly to send my outgoing emails due to "suspicious activity". It fails to send them after forcing me to enter a captcha for every email to verify that it isn't spam and each email has only one recipient, not a very good spam idea you idiots! I have spoken to someone on the phone and emailed customer service repeatedly about this issue and continue to have service interruption that is costing me important meetings. I also hate the new version of the mail…

  5. 25 years with Yahoo and I am finally giving up. Email has got worse, the site has got worse and easy tasks have got harder

    get back to what you used to do well. Yahoo has become intolerable just using its basic functions. 25 years of using you and I cant take it anymore. Switching to an alternative

  6. Narrow the side ad again and lose the purple-colored one at the top.

    I'd actually like to be able to see emails, rather then have them covered or scrunched up (and the flashing/animated ones have to go--very ******* the eyes), and if I get a virus or malware on my computer because I accidentally clicked on the purple one, there will be trouble.

    I understand you need ads for the revenue but this is getting ridiculous. (and I wouldn't pay $50 for the "privilege" of no ads, especially considering the feedback I've seen here. They pay and they pay and yet there are still ads)

  7. I agree with #!. I HATE this stupid version of Yahoo mail. I can't change the font and forwarding anything with pics is useless. It sucks

    This whole new Yahoo SUCKS. Can't change fonts on email. Can't forward anything with a picture because it doesn't show up. Why do you guys keep screwing up something that works? At least we could go back to the old version before, but now we're stuck. I'm getting ready to move to a different email provider because I get ****** off every time I do anything on here now.

  9. I would like to have a code sent by text to enter when a pw change is attempted.

    Upgraded Security. I had my email password changed without my knowledge and a code sent to my phone already listed would have prevented this. I would like to see this additional security step added when a password change is attempted.
