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. Easier Method to Block Email Addresses

    I continually get the same spam messages from the same senders. They come in at such a high rate - sometimes 100 per day - that it makes it impractical to copy each sender's email address then go to the Options page where I can then PASTE in the address. There SHOULD be an easier way to accomplish this task ... such as adding a function to the drop-down Actions list called "Add to Block List." A pretty simple fix I think to help users cut down on spam!

    Please disable all security warnings. I don't need to 'secure my account'. I don't have a mobile phone and wouldn't give out the number even if I did (yes, there are some of us in the IT biz who don't need to be wired 24/7!) How about we just be able to get into our email without a new warning and prompt every single time we log in? How about we can use our email, well, for email, for once?

    Also, how about some support at Yahoo rather than simply being referred to FAQs (not all of us are idiots;…

  9. Update your browser list

    "Yahoo recommends you upgrade your browser to enjoy all the features in the new Yahoo Mail."

    Do you realize that there are more than 3 browsers? Vivaldi (Chrome-based), Pale Moon (Mozilla-based)… In any case, add "not interested" checkbox to that warning or just stop showing it every time mailbox is loaded.

    I DO NOT LIKE the new basic version of my email address. Please change it to the old version.
    Also include my other emails: mariajoesoto@yahoo.com, thisnthat2218@yahoo.com and joesblessings@yahoo.com. I liked the them that I had on all my emails. I loved the other features it had. Why can't you leave well enough alone. Don't fix or change something that is not Broken or beautiful.

  12. 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..

  13. 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.

    Stop messing with my email. Every few months I get locked out either because yahoo claims there was "suspicious activity" or pretends not to recognize my computer, the same computer I ALWAYS sign in with. Sometimes it takes an hour or two, sometimes it takes a few days to get back in. I'm starting to think I need a non yahoo address for a backup, but if that's the case why bother with a yahoo address at all?

  20. I used to be able to see 50 emails on home screen now you changed it to 25, why?

    I used to be able to pick if I wanted to see 200, 100, 50 or 25 emails on my home screen. Now you changed it to 25. It's now takes me all day to delete emails since I now can only delete 25 at a time. Bring back the option to let me pick how many emails I want to see at a time.
