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.

  2. I HATE the latest version of Yahoo! mail.

    When I tried to switch back to classic mail I returned to some watered down bastardized version. Give me back my old Yahoo! mail that I have used for the last several years or I will not use any version of your mail client.

  6. Restore the original service immediately and fire the ******* who ****** this up.

    Restore the original service immediately! I have an email account for a website on Yahoo! finance that I can no longer get to because you people this service up! If I am loosing business because of this , you will be facing a class action lawsuit shortly. Find the * who ** this up and fire them immediately before they put you out of business.

  9. Font is way TOO SMALL!! Fix immediately or we will go to GMAIL!!

    Stop switching our email format! There is NO "settings" icon in the upper right hand corner so I CANNOT switch back! This email account is used for business and we CANNOT READ OUR EMAILS because the font is microscopic!!!!

  14. It doesn't need to be improved. Most commenters agree.

    So how about leaving it alone and letting us enjoy the platform? What's in it for Yahoo to upset its users?

  17. UNAUTHORIZED EMAIL SWITCH

    HOW MANY TIMES DO "WE" THE ACTUAL USERS HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT YOUR SWITCHING THE EMAIL TO YOUR "NEW AND IMPROVED" NOT!!!! IS A ** THING TO DO??? THE NEW VERSION SUCKS DOES NOT WORK AND IT IS INCREDIBLY BALLSY OF YOU TO THINK YOU CAN DO IT WITH OUT REPERCUSSIONS. IF YOU THINK PEOPLE HATE FACEBOOK YOU NEED TO PAY ATTENTION BECAUSE YOU ARE RIGHT UP THERE AS NUMBER 2 ON THE IF I COULD SWITCH MY BUSINESS EMAIL TO SOMETHING ELSE I WOULD IN A HEARTBEAT LIST.

  18. You need to lose the "new and ******" email page. Don't need it, don't want it, and I will change it every time back to the original.

    Fire the retards that think changing things for the sake of change is a brilliant way to look busy in their cubes. They're a waste of your resources and money and will drive your customers away.
