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.

  1. Emails partly disappear

    All November and December emails disappeared for 12 Hours, then I clicked the alianz sponsored advert and everything was back to normal. It has happened 3-4 times this month. Is this done to push us to open the advert?

  2. Allow deletion or change of disposable address base name.

    Once a disposable address's base name is created it can not be changed. This is pretty useless and needs to change.

  5. Yahoo mail is infuriating!

    Yahoo mail has asked me to change my password three times this past week and has failed repeatedly to send my outgoing emails due to "suspicious activity". It fails to send them after forcing me to enter a captcha for every email to verify that it isn't spam and each email has only one recipient, not a very good spam idea you idiots! I have spoken to someone on the phone and emailed customer service repeatedly about this issue and continue to have service interruption that is costing me important meetings. I also hate the new version of the mail…

  6. 25 years with Yahoo and I am finally giving up. Email has got worse, the site has got worse and easy tasks have got harder

    get back to what you used to do well. Yahoo has become intolerable just using its basic functions. 25 years of using you and I cant take it anymore. Switching to an alternative

  7. I would like to have a code sent by text to enter when a pw change is attempted.

    Upgraded Security. I had my email password changed without my knowledge and a code sent to my phone already listed would have prevented this. I would like to see this additional security step added when a password change is attempted.

  10. I'm done. This new email is ****!!!!!!!! I can't do anything with it

    Now I really am going to find another email system. This is worthless. You can't do anything with this junk like you could with the old system. It's a real shame because I've had yahoo mail for a really long time. I'll take all of my emails somewhere else. I'm tired of fighting this. This "new" system is a BIG step backwards.
