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.

  5. Fix Please!

    So now I can no longer select and move emails into My Folders. I get a message saying "There was a problem! No folder selected. Please select a folder and try again." which is not true. Lately it's one thing after another with Yahoo mail. Please correct.

  8. Password

    I should not have to change my password. This is something that should be up to me if I want to keep the one I have. This is just really a way to try to get my phone number by saying if I forget.

    For the past week I have had trouble getting access to my e-mail. I am tired of constantly having to change my password and getting secret codes sent to another device every time I want to read an e-mail. Please give me a human being to call so that I can resolve whatever at Yahoo is blocking my access. Have you changed your system to something that has flaws?

    Fix your lousy service. For the past three months I have had to log in with a new user code every time I try to log in on the same computer. Also I cannot forward my e-mails under bcc It will not let me add the recipients. If i could I would switch to another service.

  14. Leave things alone. Quit asking me to update to newest version, it stinks!! Yahoo used to be my main e-mail. No More

    Every time you improve you downgrade your product. I used to use Yahoo as my main e-mail. The only reason I haven't closed the account is some old contacts don't have my new address. I never use the Yahoo search engine anymore, google has become superior in every way. What a tragedy.

  15. Didn't think you could make sign in a pain in the butt, but you managed with the separate screens for name and password

    Stop screwing around with things that weren't broken. Find something else for your tech staffers to do, like play scrabble, chess, or poker, or send them over to bother Gmail or something

  17. basic

    Again..yes switching back to basic I am able (and as it gloriously was) to type one letter in the (TO) box and all the addresses pop up for me to chose ...wonderful..but again i do not get the extra conveniences associated with the newer versions(not this extra new one from Jan 10,2016.
