“Unpredictable performance, arrogant yet poor support.”

Written on: 27/01/2017 by 354Huber (1 review written)

We've been a paid business email client for years. Yahoo has had it moments but never before have we experienced such a consistent period of unpredictability. Without changing settings on our clients we can receive anywhere from dozens of repeated inbound emails to nothing. Our MS Outlook and mobile email applications periodically receive extensive hours of invalid credential responses while trying to send or receive mail or seemingly log in to show no waiting messages even though logging in… Read Full Review

“Regular data requests despite their data breaches!”

Written on: 01/01/2017 by GrumpyVictor (1 review written)

The cheek of this company, the hacking issues with Yahoo are well advertised on the internet and on my login page. Annoyingly they ask for my telephone numbers, mobile and landline, on a regular basis claiming, with what can only be described as fear mongering, it is to avoid being locked out of your account! Well what about the security questions is that not their job? The request for data is unnecessary, an invasion of privacy and really with all the hacking problems at Yahoo, can they be… Read Full Review

“Password Paranoia”

Written on: 24/12/2016 by kevinworby (1 review written)

Yahoo continuously bothers users to change passwords and now is forcing people to change them or loose account access. They have no right to dictate what my pw is nor if or when I change it. so I will leave yahoo and find another email provider so I can keep track of my pw… Read Full Review

“Average free email service”

Written on: 25/05/2016 by 57Kearney (1 review written)

(This review is for Yahoo Mail in the US) I've been using my free Yahoo email account for over 20 years now for online shopping and casual contacts. I don't use Yahoo Mail for family & serious contacts because the spammers love to spam Yahoo Mail to death as it's easier to hack into the Yahoo accounts and to obtain Yahoo email addresses than other email service providers. I normally received well over 100 spam emails in the Spam folder of my Yahoo Mail account daily. Thanks to Yahoo's great… Read Full Review

“The NEW yahoo mail sucks”

Written on: 27/07/2015 by MarenHiggins89 (1 review written)

It used to be that I could get to my mail through Yahoo mail in five minutes and open mail immediately, respond to or forward it right away and get into all the folders. Now with the "New Yahoo Mail" it often takes over an hour to get to my in box and 20 minutes to open an email. I seldom can respond to, or forward, any emails. I can't access my sent, spam, or trash folders. I tried to contact Yahoo about this problem and all I could get to was their "Quick Fix" service. It is worthless!… Read Full Review

Ahill26's Comment

Written on: 25/08/2015

I thought it was just me having this issue. You are totally right. I have missed important information due to not being able to access my mail. If it doesn't improve within the next month I am going to another mail provider. I have been more than patient for a whole month of continually contacting customer support. I get access for a couple of days then it goes right back to some errors message.

“Bad basic premise”

Written on: 18/11/2014 by 233Fisher (1 review written)

I try not to be a crank, buy the new Yahoo mail is a good example of a complex interface system that fails at all levels. I've taught human factors in interface design at West Point and Johns Hopkins, and the new Yahoo mail shows no awareness of design standards. Bear in mind that Yahoo's basic goal is (correctly) increasing revenues. Hence we have a system driven by marketing and glitz, not responsive to how users are best served. Yes, spam attacks in swarm and navigation is confusing and… Read Full Review

“WTF??”

Written on: 11/11/2014 by FrustratedUser10 (1 review written)

There was a time when I used yahoo mail, but w/ this new format, I'm gone. Now, the inbox fills the full browser screen and there is little in the way of navigation--I still don't know how to get to any other folder, and the few 'links' (at least I think they're links--I really can't tell) there are aren't labelled, now does a mouse-over event reveal what they are. As a result, the spam and trash folders will fill up unabated, and there is no way to get to them to empty them. I don't know why… Read Full Review

“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. The interface changes are always extremely buggy. 3. Servers frequently down, inbox or folders not available. 4. Too much emphasis on social media integration. 5. 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 (6 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
