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. Why have you changed the version of Yahoo?? It is difficult to read or to forward..Why do you keep making it more difficult to stay with Ya

    Are you trying to lose business or followers?? What did you do with the old version of Yahoo...This one is archaic... Give back the old version and leave it alone..If it's not broken...please don't try to fix it!!!

  7. What happened to endless scrolling of mails?

    I used to be able to go through my email by simply scrolling up/down with my mouse wheel. Now I get a single page of emails with << >> to go to next page. This is a waste of time. Since this was already the method of operating exactly what problem did it fix? In looking at a lot of the comments yahoo appears to be messing up mail big time. If you're looking for ways to improve the 'user experience' why don't you pay attention to the comments?

  9. Enlarge the print and check boxes and quit sending us back to inbox after deleting a message

    Your print is too small. Every time I delete a message that I have read I am sent to the inbox. Really frustrating. Delete button and other buttons are too hard to read and find. Take back to the way it used to be or give us the option to do so.

  13. I don't want the new ********. I want my older, classic e-mail.

    Bring back the older, better, classic setup. And stop changing anything. You don't need to look like Outlook/Hotmail or even Gmail. That is what I see yahoo doing, copying other e-mail, and they need to stop, and stay unique. I don't want to look at one e-mail and forget what I am looking at. This new stuff, and hitting shift-k to mark messages as read is utter ********.

  15. Please make deleting messages from a specific sender easier.

    Please make deleting messages from a specific sender easier. Something like Micro***t mails "sweep" feature. Sorting, searching, then clicking box after box to select messages to delete takes forever. Cant I just select one message then have an option to "select all from sender" then delete? With the sorting option it allows me to group messages by sender by I still have to deal with clicking every single message one by one so I select the messages from the one sender. Its time consuming. Please make it easier

  16. SAVED E-MAILS IN FOLDERS

    HERE IS A GREAT SUGGESTION FOR YOU. I HAVE HUNDREDS OF E-MAILS SAVED IN MY FOLDERS. THEY ARE SAVED BY THE PERSON WHO SENT THE E-MAIL. IF YOU COULD FIND A WAY TO SAVE E-MAILS WITH A NOTE OR SOME IDENTIFYING INFO WHEN YOU SAVE IT TO A FOLDER IT WOULD SO MUCH EASIER TO REVIEW ALL THOSE SAVED E-MAILS IN THE SAME FOLDER !!! FOR EXAMPLE, I SAVED THOUSANDS OF E-MAILS IN A PURCHASES FOLDER. BUT I DO NOT KNOW ANY INFO ABOUT THE E-MAIL OR WHERE TO FIND A PARTICULAR PURCHASE. FIND A WAY DO ADD AN IDENTIFYING…

  17. Apply Yahoo SPAM filter BEFORE my custom filter.

    As of the last week of 2018, my yahoo SPAM is exploding.
    I have several custom filters that catch spammers and they dump to my custom "_SPAM" folder. Then I select all those emails and click "report as spam". However, the process is never ending. My filter is catching spammers BEFORE the Yahoo spam filter!

    Please apply the Yahoo SPAM filter BEFORE delivering mail to my custom filters. Else, I can never stop my custom "_SPAM" folder from filling up.

    Thanks for Yahoo Mail!

  19. You need to show us how to delete our account, since your new "privacy" terms are terrible.

    Your claim of protecting our privacy is a fraud. We should have an easy way to delete our account, and all of our email history, without having to fly to New York for "arbitration".
