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. Please stop the annoying phone verification.

    Like most people I talk to, I am using other email servers. This phone thing drives me crazy. You will learn after you lose your advertising revenue and no one uses it any longer.

  2. get rid of the account key

    Go back to a password only. I cannot be texted as My phone does not work when I am out of the country , which I am now and every year about 3-4 months. The key is a pain **********. I have been with yahoo mail for at least 25 years and am very much considering leaving.

  3. I do not want to have to get a phone call just to open mail

    I do not want to have to get a phone call or text just to read my mail, just because I cleared my cache. This is too much - how can I change my settings to just sign in with my ID and password - whether I am at home or on my work computer?

  11. Please stop asking me to authenticate my identity via my phone. That's what my password is for. I waste so much time.

    Please, please, I do not have time to waste when I log in, to wait for a code to be sent to my phone or alternative address. My password is pretty safe. Please, it is so annoying and burdensome. This is my main private account, but if it continues to be such a burden to log in, I will have to get one in google.

  14. Get rid of the robot check or simplify it so people like myself can see the images clearly.

    The robot check is annoying and confusing. It is also difficult to see many of the images. Please tighten security in another way.
