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.

  1. Blocking email addresses

    It would be great if I could block email addresses from spammers without having to put in the entire address for instance, requiring only
    @(domain).(com)(net)(org) etc. to be entered.

  4. Please fire whoever keep changing the way we log into our email account.

    If it is not broken, DON'T FIX IT!!!! Change the way we sign-on to view the email account without having to see the same front page news all over again. If I want to view any updated news, I would stay on the page to read it. But when I want to view my emails, then direct me into my emails without showing the current news over again. It's pointless.

  7. Why don't you allow landline numbers to secure an account? I don't have a cell phone, & went I try to add my phone, it says "no vip numbers

    Allow land line numbers for account security. I keep getting the message that you don't allow "VIP" numbers. I don't have "VIP", whatever the **** that is, I have a land line. I DON'T have a cell phone, so asking me to add a number is worthless!

  8. HOW ABOUT HAVING AN OPTION TO DELEATE ALL MAIL AT ONCE, NOT JUST A FEW AT A TIME. OUTLOOK HAS THIS AND YAHOO NEEDS IT TO SAVE TIME.

    OUTLOOK HAS OPTION TO DELEATE MAIL A FEW OR ALL AT SAME TIME. YAHOO CAN LEARN FROM THEM AND SAVE TIME FOR YOUR USERS

  11. Mail filters would be nice!

    Your help section says to just go to Mail Settings and there the filters will be. Well...I've just tried out Basic Mail, New, and the mobile sites. Not only is there no Settings link (it's called Options, now), but apparently there's no filter function. I'm suddenly getting loads of Spam in my inbox and having filters back would be nice! Or at least update the help section!

  12. Include more options when completing the Restore Request (i.e. "Saved Draft Missing")

    Include more options in Yahoo dropdown list for us to check when completing the Email Restore Request (i.e. "Previously Saved Draft Missing"). If this is not implemented, how does Yahoo tech know the issue relates to a missing "PREVIOUSLY SAVED" DRAFT? Also, Yahoo needs to clarify what their definition of an email is (i.e. does it Include "draft"?)

  15. Yahoo is no longer user friendly

    You have upgraded the email system so much that it is no longer user friendly. Back off the upgrading, remove the last upgrade and give me my email back. I have switched back to basic because this new system is too difficult to maneuver. The upgrades you are doing SUCK! and it just looks like someone is upgrading **** to keep their job.

  17. Yahoo! should be embarrassed. I had to change to the basic email settings because the no part of the new settings are not functioning right?

    Yahoo! you should be embarrassed. I had to change to the basic email settings because the no part of the new settings are not functioning right? In addition, how about adding a option to turn off the videos that appear all sections of the users email accounts. They annoying.

  18. Why Yahoo only give me an opiton to " Disable security questions " when I try to modify / update my security question ?

    Why Yahoo only give me an option to " Disable security questions " when I try to modify / update my 2 security question ? Could you add an option " Edit " next to the enable/disable security question ? Thanks.
