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.

  4. What happened to the block address feature? You were able to simultaneously delete inbox email as well all future emails from the sender.

  10. Stop with the hijacking of my email

    You know whats more annoying than websites taking the information I freely give them and selling it to advertisers? Yahoo attempting to FORCE me to read the updates by hijacking my email! I'm an adult, I have the God given gift of free choice. If I don't want to or don't have the time to slug through legal jargon I don't have to. So please change the set up to when I first sign in, the message pops up, and if I choose to refresh or open my email a second time, because I don't have time to read your…

  13. I utterly and completely loathe the newer version of Yahoo Mail and you really need to stop changing my format away from basic.

    The basic mail is fine. What I need is for you to STOP switching me to the new version. I hate it, it attempts to allow endless ad servers to add themselves to whitelists. Unfortunately for you I use firefox because I know how to set up the configuration to block whitelist downloads...and I know how to use my hosts files to block specific webpages in a way that will have their computers pinging themselves instead of me, if I don't just choose to decide to bounce them instead.

  18. QUIT screwing with the old Yahoo mail.

    QUIT screwing with the old Yahoo mail. Everybody likes the old version yet you keep forcing us to go to the new version. Why do you NOT listen to your customers? What is wrong with you people? Now, every time I go into yahoo mail, it comes to the new version, which I HATE. I have to manually switch back to the old version EVERY SINGLE TIME. WTF is your problem? Why won't you respond to anybody?

  19. Quit trying to be clever..... it is not working!

    Your new and improved system looks to be only a response from someone higher on the food chain who is petulantly demanding something new. Not working; not clever. Also, quit it with the overtyping... every time you folks try to improve, the overtyping comes back without a way to turn it off, and I lose everything I have already put in.
