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.

  8. I hate the newest version. I can't block spam, not enough colors to pick and the trash shouldn't be to the right, I deleted the wrong mail.

    New version is bad; Can't Block Spam, Trash can s/b on the left not the right, I deleted the wrong mail and not enough themes to pick from. I want my Classic back, not Basic.

  10. Switch Back to Old Version is incomplete. I have to key in complete email address HELP

    It didn't completely switch back to the old version and now I have to key in the complete email address where it would type ahead. I have to scroll through the complete Contact List for each one on my list. Contact list is a pain in the **** to use

  14. New version is messing with my emails

    i could not read an email from a credit card company. When I manually switched to old version (which angers me b/c I need to do this EVERY TIME!!!) my email was readable...I don't know what happened, but the "new" format changed the format of he email..

  15. ********

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your feedback. The option to switch back to the previous version can be found in the dropdown menu on the upper right of the screen. Open the dropdown and select “Go to old version” and click “Go”.

    Thanks,
    Mail Support

    This is not true once you reopen yahoo the shittiest email on the planet open... AKA the new yahoo mail

  16. Privacy Issues

    I understand that you need to post your Ads in order to sell your products however YOU are invading my personal space and privacy by NOT allowing me to decide for myself.....I have repeatedly voiced my opinion on this and yet I still continue to see your Ads....when I did not ask to see your Ads in the first place nor am I interested in purchasing your products! If I do not want Ads of any kind from any company then that is MY RIGHT NOT YOURS! Listen to the rights of the people and respect our wishes!

  17. The old version was better visually. Sad I can't get back my classic view.

    I know things have to change, but the new version is hard to look at and it's not as quick. My eyes can't handle all the bright flashing ads. It looks cheesy.

    Also, it's deceiving to make ads/promoted companies look like one of my emails in the hopes I'll mistakenly click on it.

    I know you all have to generate income but come on now. Might have to use gmail for personal emails now, too.
