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.

  3. This new version completely sucks!

    This new version completely sucks! It's a lie that we can change back--there is no option! 20 years with Yahoo but I am done. Every change makes it worse and this is the last straw. If Yahoo wants to change they should revert to the email of about 3 generations back.

  5. Yahoo Mail doesn't work with Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10 Anniversary Release - only shows the basic user experience

    Internet Explorer 11 must have a new browser version in the latest Windows 10 release that just came out (1607 release). Yahoo Mail does not even offer the ability to go to the full mail interface - it just defaults to the basic interface.
