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. YOU HAD NO RIGHT TO SWITCH MY EMAIL WITHOUT MY CONSENT! I AM ****** AND NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE. GMAIL HERE I COME!

    THIS IS NOT AN IDEA. IT IS A DEMAND THAT I GET MY OLD VERSION EMAIL BACK OR I WILL NEVER EVEN SPEAK OF YAHOO AGAIN!

  4. I want my classic back!

    Much easier to navigate between multiple yahoo accounts and I like the red dot indicator for when I receive an email.

  5. Return message preview - right-click

    Up unitl this new POS version one could right click on the message notice in the Inbox and see the message headers and content. Not any more. Thanks for lowering security and making our computers more vulnerable. Blithering buggers.

  11. The phone no I have on account is 86-9999999999 It does not let me delete the phone no & keeps saying it would send a code to this ph no. Ev

    The phone no I have on account is 86-9999999999 It does not let me delete the phone no & keeps saying it would send a code to this ph no. Every body does not have a phone. Phones can be hacked too. Phones don't work when you are traveling Internationally. I would prefer to go back to Q & Answer to prove. Today I was able to log in with luck so I am writing to you. I was not able to log in for a long time

  12. It's **** to have to deal with another NEW interface. Leave it to **** alone!

    Vote with your feet. It may be a pain to switch addresses with your contacts, but it's the only way Yahoo will get the message that we're sick of their tech department playing with the interface to keep themselves from getting bored. Switch to another mail provider.

  15. 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.

  20. Where are settings in the new mail?! Also, your chat assistant is useless.

    I want to change how the new mail (which I do not like) is viewed. I want to see the split screen with my inbox list at the top and the email open below. But I can't even find the settings option or any way to change how things are viewed. I tried the live chat option to ask for help and was immediately told they can't help (they were "responding" before I even finished typing) and tried to sell me the new pay version. It is clearly a robot and not a helpful one, at that. LEAVE THE OLD…
