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. Have you ever heard the axiom: " if it ain't broke, don't fix it !" ?!?!? WHY change our old format to something we DO NOT want ????d format

    Please give us back the old format ; it was so much better. I did NOT and WILL not request this "new/improved" style. WHY "fix" something that ain't broke ?!!??

  4. I need the Classic mail back! The new one & the basic one stink! I can't read the font. It is so small I'm getting a headache !

    The basic has no color control and the screen is hurting my eyes. Between that and the extremely small font, I have a headache just trying to read my emails! You really need to fix this.

  5. How can I se the old version to stay there and not have the new version pop up every time I log on???????

    Give us a way to save the old version as our choices are not being honored. Ever time I log on, the new basic pops up. I don't want the new version of Basis. I want the old version to be there when I log on.
