“Once was good but no longer usable”

Written on: 07/10/2014

This review pertains to the free version as of October 2014. Pros: It is free. Cons: Many, here are a few. 1. Frequent interface changes with no warning. 2.

Forwarding of attachments works only occasionally. 6. POP not available with free version. 7. Mail forwarding not available with free version. 8. Support for free version is… Read Full Review

“No support when seriously hacked and lost emails.”

Written on: 16/07/2014 by crRamsey165 (1 review written)

I've been hacked several times in the last year and always change my email immediately to a harder version. My last was 20 total characters that included two capitals, four numbers, and two characters. This hack originated in Nigeria and asked all my friends/family for money. They used my email for the first email and when they responded, using my email but changed the provider to hotmail. I called both providers and Yahoo never answered any of the several numbers I found. Hotmail answered… Read Full Review

“It weren't broke - you should have left it alone.”

Written on: 20/06/2014 by MDUK69 (5 reviews written)

I have used Yahoo! mail for 10 or 12 years for my personal mail. The "upgrade" last year has might it confusing (try finding email trails now!) difficult to manage (try deleting just some mail from the whole page quickly!) and have now inflicted sponsored mail on us. Sponsored mail that you cannot delete. They will argued that it's free. Well just cost it's free doesn't mean it should be bad - listen to your users. Take a leaf out of Coca Colas book and dump "new coke" and give us back… Read Full Review

“Total Garbage”

Written on: 06/04/2014 by qdSchwartz1967 (1 review written)

Ever since yahoo moved to their new version, it is by far the worst email experience I have ever had. I wouldn't recommend to to my worst enemy. It is slow, confusing, unreliable, and should be DESTROYED. Shame on Yahoo for even converting to this atrocity. What a hassle it will be for me to convert to a new email account, yet I will do it, and smile daily once I have kicked Yahoo to the curb for good. Good riddance Yahoo… Read Full Review

“Yahoogle mail is RUBBISH”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by Nolan365 (1 review written)

The corporate machine sweeps on. The new rubbish Yahoo Mail must be somehow cheaper to run. I have now nearly moved all my correspondence to outlook.com which is 200% better than the new Yahoo. Bye Bye Yahoogle mail… Read Full Review

“WARNING!!! Hacked, hacked, hacked again, again, again.”

Written on: 09/03/2014 by Bauerhj293 (1 review written)

Stay away from Yahoo mail. Stay away from Yahoo period! The only reason this review has even 1 star is because they wont publish it without one. My account has been hacked into so many times... I have changed the password over and over, changed security questions- then they say my answers, the I created!, are wrong. I have been trying to get this account deleted for over a month, and I keep getting the run around from their 'customer service'. What a joke. I went to Hotmail ages ago, and it… Read Full Review

“They do not filter spam well at all”

Written on: 08/02/2014

First, they could make it MUCH less difficult to set spam filters. I have repeatedly set filters to send the worst offenders directly to the trash, but they are still clogging my spam folder. This makes it harder that it need be for me to check my spam for mail that I actually want. I can only assume that they want me to see the senders and subject lines… Read Full Review

“What has happened to yahoo”

Written on: 06/02/2014

Basically they have messed about with it once too often. Slow to load, ( no its not my internet connection) doesn't always send and now they have decided to go 'European' what other problems will follow. I have managed to get software to block all the advertising which was becoming a complete and utter pain. Maybe yahoo doesn't like the fact I don't want their ads and hence its their way of retaliating but sod them… Read Full Review

“Yahoo email is rubbish”

Written on: 13/12/2013

Beware - don't shift to Yahoo email. It's appalling. EG. 1. can't move emails into my folders most of the time (occasionally works) .....2. can't make my lettering bold or italics - buttons don't work...3. Can't use tabs, so if for example I am reading an email and want to check my calendar etc - I have to leave the email and then recover it later....PITIFULLY AWFUL....I'm looking to abandon Yahoo email unless there's a quick improvement… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/03/2014

Agreed, it is slow and clunky, buttons often need several clicks to open, but worst of all, every single time you log on you have to wait for a wretched screen to load, saying you can personalise your page with a theme, and you can't do anything till you've clicked on No Thanks.

I used Yahoo for a number of years and was very pleased with it. However, they have recently updated their site and their email pages....... they are now rubbish. Don't think about using them as they must be on the way out… Read Full Review

“If it Ain't Broke, Don't Fix it!”

Written on: 20/11/2013 by whiterocklucky (1 review written)

I too had this 'new and improved' version foisted upon me. What a piece of trash. Among other things I really do not like is the order in which the 'conversation' history is presented. I don't want to scroll to the bottom of the email to read the latest entry/reply. I want to see the most recent 'conversation' first and I will scroll then if I need to review what has been written before. At least there could be a button to allow me to quickly switch the order of the conversation. Last in, first… Read Full Review

“bad problem solving”

Written on: 17/11/2013

I used ymail without any problems for 1 1/2 years but two weeks ago I tried to refresh my e mails and was greeted with a message saying my server id password had been changed. I had not changed it. I called yahoo help line who told me my account was in the hands of the abuse department and could not help me by phone. I needed to go on line. I did this and had no response. I called again and was told the same thing. 3 times I have done this and am still none the wiser. It has now also affected… Read Full Review

“what were they thinking?????”

Written on: 10/11/2013

unbelievably insane trying to get around the "new" yahoo mail. ads everywhere, opening and closing all over the page. yahoo had a great mail program which I've used for over 10 years -- this is SOOO frustrating that i'm closing/referring my email address. why would you put the attachment icon on the very bottom of the page, after multiple histories? why does the email you're reading collapse out of nowhere? why am I looking all over the place for simple commands like replay or forward?… Read Full Review

“Whose idea was this?”

Written on: 02/11/2013 by trb1 (1 review written)

Email is a tool, like a pen or a phone. We learn to use one, get used to its quirks, and then get on with using it. Being offered a new option eg tags instead of folders, or drafts that stuck so that you could use them several times with minor changes, would be fine. Waking up to find that everything has moved, and features that you are used to have vanished, is an unmitigated pain in the arse (sorry, ass). The new bells and whistles that 'expert' reviewers get so excited about are of no… Read Full Review
