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. Can't change number of messages per page in Basic OR Full Featured Mail

    Please make the number of messages per page an option with Basic AND Full Featured Mail. It is no longer possible. Options should be 25, 50, 100 and 200 at least.

  4. I think you need to supply people with actual live customer support for problems because, your help section is nothing but run around.

    Add contact info (real info) not a 800 # with a recorded message telling you to go to your site for help. Your site is nothing but run around and offers no real help. Especially to people that have had their info hacked or changed making it impossible to fix or do anything you suggest. It's a joke you offer nothing in the form of support but robo responses. Add live chat support. A company this big who has been buying up others services can surely do this and afford it. Show you truly care about the people who use…

  7. I asked you to stop geo-checking upon log-in, because some people use VPN

    But you still go on checking. How should I receive a security code at another mail account given they apply the same logic as you do?! And don't resort to the SMS way-out: I have a number of SIM cards in the varuous countries I visit, so would not know which one to give you.

    The bottomline: I don't want you to care about my security other than that you keep your hard- and software in good running shape. Let my personal organisation be my personal matter.

  9. This new page set-up is TERRIBLE.

    TOO MANY problems to list. For example: "Delete" cannot be accessed unless I go back to the top & find it --- every time! It's ridiculous. I've been w/ Yahoo for many years, but I'm "this close" to changing. This is STUPID.

  10. fix search so it once again searches all emails in your acct.

    Currently we are unable to search more than a few days back in our mail box. Does it have anything to do with how much you have in your storage? We need access to some tech support. Quick fix does nothing for us and there is no place to send in what our problem actually is to get an answer.

  11. 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!

  12. Allow deletion or change of disposable address base name.

    Once a disposable address's base name is created it can not be changed. This is pretty useless and needs to change.
