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. I'm not using it because I need a new email account. I'm using it because you morons dropped the passwords off my REAL accounts.

    Put the default passwords that I had assigned to royslady51a and alterationalteraccount and MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. I don't need your insistence that I constantly change my passwords and I DEFINITELY don't need you **** locking my accounts because I don't use them as often as you think I should. There is absolutely no excuses for this kind of .

  8. I DO NOT have a mobile device of ANY kind. My other email I haven't accessed in years. If I change internet provider I lose THAT account.

    I DO NOT have a mobile device of ANY kind. My other email I haven't accessed in years. If I change internet provider I lose THAT account.
    If my Yahoo account is ever hacked in the future...Wouldn't all this info you're collecting compromise those too?
    PLEASE just give me an 'opt out' choice in any changes to my account!
    AND if ALL this is about "SECURITY"?...Why have a " Stay Logged In" feature? At least have THAT option unchecked instead of checked automatically!
    My Yahoo 'experience' is getting to be like a NIGHTMARE written by a deranged Dr. Suess.

  9. I don't mind ads until they take up part of message and I can't read my it!

    I told you to cut back on the size of the ad. I know you must have them but if they block the email they are too big!
    Now I have another problem with the ads; they are coming on over the area I am suppose to have to get to the next idem.
    I don't think you will change or even answer; so I must lost yahoo in favor of another service.

  15. gmail will earn another customer. Yahoo ads are a money grab on our convenience.

    here is an idea. instead of making money just to bnombard the screen with ads, why not give a choice to view ads, or delete the moment t
    they appear? yahoo needs more money for what? gmail here I come.
    after years of enjoying yahoo, they take our preference mail and change to another "new" mail that absolutely no one likes.
    Time to put your thinking caps on yahoo

    Fix your login. Every time I have to login to my account, it says the password is invalid. I keep resetting the password, but when I try to login with it, it won't work.

    I have a premium account with Yahoo. I travel to Thailand 3 times per year. On every trip I am required to confirm by getting an email at AOL. Now AOL is doing the same thing. I spend over 13 weeks per year in Thailand and cannot login.
