    By Junglejimrr
    I have had Yahoo probably since I was about 12 years old I am 37 now and I love yahoo I’ve never had a problem with it I’ve had plenty of problems with other apps another mailing services you know, losing your mail , locking you out of your own Mail not giving you access to it holding your personal files and memories that ranson dang near , they make it a secure enoughTo trust the fact that your files will be there tomorrow and for years to come , I haveBeen blocked and denied access to my own accounts numerous times either milling apps sites what ever you want to call them , a few times actually yahoo has been the only one that’s ever been there threw it all , they have never turned there back on me it’s always been there for me that’s the only account that I have I can trust and I am always feel that I am secure and that if somthing happened , they would have my back here for once are you and I probably always will always been ther fir you , yahoo thank you

    TY for fixing previous notification issue. Trying to find if we can customize options at the bottom of an email (move, forward, reply all, etc) to make it easier. Otherwise, mostly reliable and the ads help keep it free, so they're a necessary evil....as long as they don't become noisy or intrusive. One flaw is that clicking on a phone notification opens Yahoo but not to most recent emails. Kinda takes me to where I was last when browsing mail. Room for improvement.
  • Great app one small flaw Jul 16, 2021

    By Timc266
    I like this app I have no problems with its functionality. Perhaps others should update it if having functional issues. One thing that would make it perfect in my opinion (thus deserving of 5 stars) is if one had the ability to change the sound that is used for notifications of new mail received. I tried doing so in both phone settings and in app settings to no avail. One of the main reasons I switched to this app instead of using the Mail app in iOS was because for the last month or so (maybe longer) the iOS Mail app was not receiving pushed mail from Yahoo. It was before because I paid for that ability from Yahoo (paid so that POP mail would be supported). I guess Yahoo decided to stop that service or make it slow or whatever maybe to push (no pun intended) their own Mail app. It's fine. I'm not too disappointed. (I will be stopping payments for that though) Anyway, like I wrote, the main reason I got the app was so I could get mail as it's pushed to the server and now that's happening again. But the sound is too much like other notifications (like Tweet notifications and calendar reminders) so I can't tell by sound alone what just occurred on my phone. The sound is too much like other notifications in other words. So if we could change that notification sound that would be awesome. It would make the app perfect, IMO. I already submitted this as feedback in the app but I thought I'd write a review about it as well.

    Has been an email provider for years with very few issues. Until I lost track of the password to a longstanding email address of mine. When I finally got to talk to someone there to help recover or change the password. I was told be the lady that she could see my password on her screen, but would not give it to me or change it uses I paid $12+ per month and had to pay for 12 months in advance. So make sure to keep that password safe or an extra $150.00 ready to pay their ransom.

    I just want to know how to access my contacts and delete the spam contacts and hopefully turn off the feature that auto adds contact info for every piece of spam I receive. That chat bot is a joke and I can't find a human to ask. I do like that you're able to make a bunch of separate inboxes. I like that feature a lot that's why I use this mail.

    Not a bad app. They have fixed their last bad update that rendered it virtually unusable because it kept freezing up. Now that this has been fixed and working correctly, it isn't bad. I love the dark theme. The ads used to load right as you went to click your mail causing you to open ads unintentionally, but they have fixed that now. The ads are clearly visible but not as intrusive as in the past. I like the ease of flipping between different accounts. I would recommend as it stands today.

    Articles too biased. Too many from CNN & MSNBC, both of whom hate Trump and do not write fair stories or cover many important issues, such as good news of the employment figures, how minorities are doing better than any time in history, how so many more are killed in auto accidents than by guns, even though the Fed Govt has spent years of money & regulations to make autos safer, how our lower & middle class are being hurt badly by illegal immigration & everyone’s safety is at risk from unknown flooding over the boarders. How none of the incitement’s have anything to do with ‘Russian Collusion’ & how much this investigation is costing taxpayers & how much the ‘political investigations by democrats are costing money & time from business that needs conducting. There is so much more to be covered but all you want to do is focus on anything that might hurt the president & consequently are hurting the entire USA. As far as the operation of the Yahoo site, it’s slow, doesn’t respond many times and I have to open the page 2 or 3 times. It just doesn’t compare to gmail. Tom😡

  • Great except for the “Deals in this Email” that dramatically slow you down Nov 23, 2019

    By jsmithdmi
    I’ve used the iPhone Mail app well...since I’ve had my first iPhone. I’ve also always had a yahoo email address, and had seen they completely overhauled the yahoo app a little while back. I tried it and it was fantastic!! It made moving through all the mail (including junk mail) so much easier and quicker by simply swiping from email to email! However then the “deals in this email” started popping up and that wouldn’t clear the “unread” status. I tried emailing support to ask if there was a way to disable the deals component as it was quite annoying to have to back out of the message and go back in to “clear”and was given a canned response “we can’t respond to all emails so try our support page/FAQ”.....well, I also don’t have to use your app and can go back to my mail app. Then an update came out and that was gone...but then it’s back. Long story short, the app is good and user friendly...except for the pain in the behind deals from this email stuff, which if it stays will likey push me back to my native email app.

  • I have Yahoo! basic were I don’t pay anything for it Apr 17, 2021

    By MABasenjis
    The only thing I don’t like about this and the reason I give it only two stars is not only do I get advertisements at the top of my email inbox but sometimes I get spam emails in my inbox instead of going into my spam folder and when I ask Yahoo! about this they tell me to upgrade to where I have to pay $.99 so I won’t get those spam emails or the ads up at the top of my email inbox that’s another annoying thing if it’s free then you shouldn’t have to pay anything to have the ad removed if you say you just like the ad you shouldn’t have to pay anything for an email service unless it’s a business account and you have a lot of other features and with me I just go ahead and send emails every once in a while and this is the same account as I’ve had for about five or six years since I opened my email address account and that’s my opinion of Yahoo! basic if I don’t want the ad they say it’s called the Yahoo! pro program and I don’t want to pay that because when I signed up for Yahoo! basic I was looking for a free and non- ad based email and that’s what Yahoo! was I know they have do you have to use Yahoo! pro if you don’t want the advertisements at the top why should you have to pay if it’s a free service for no advertisements why is it deleting enough
  • No Setting For Notification Sounds Jun 30, 2018

    By Daman M
    Deleted app finally. I linked yahoo mail through gmail. I highly recommend. More flaws to report with yahoo app. I am using an iPhone X. Mail would disappear from the inbox if I clicked on a new mail notification. Would take hours to appear back. If I used the search to find an old email it would find the email and when I click on it the email it would just load and load an nothing would appear. I finally had to forward the email to gmail so I could view it. Also why should one have to pay to remove annoying ads which aren’t even applicable to what I am interested in. Worst app ever. Minus one star for not being able to change sounds for incoming & outgoing mail. If you have an iPhone you are stuck with the generic default notification and can’t change it at all in the settings of the app or in the settings for the iPhone. Second minus star that they show irrelevant ads in the top of the inbox. I don’t want to pay a dollar a month to get rid of it. If you want people to use your app rather than the default mail setting in the iPhone then get rid of that like gmail and outlook have in their free versions. Update to the developer’s reply. That is untrue. Both the Outlook and Google mail apps. let you change sound notifications within the “settings” of the widget themselves and not in the actual Apple settings.

    Free service, so delivery is slow and support vacant. Forgot password doesn't work in the Android app with the alternative email recovery option because once you go to retrieve the security code emailed there, you cannot return to the yahoo password recovery webpage becuase yahoo closes as soon as you try to return. Well done yahoo geniuses.
  • Terrible Nov 18, 2021

    By JayJay28282
    Update: The original complaints have stopped, but I still don’t like it. I get the same spam over and over again...Squarespace is about to delete my nonexistent account and I have to update my credit information. I send every email to Spam and I’ve been doing it for at least a year. Does Spam mean anything? Is there no way for Yahoo to stop our spam? Also, if I send an email to 3 people and one responds, I read it and delete it. Another responds and both of the responses show up. I deleted the first one; why is it there? I delete them both, and the 3rd person responds, so all 3 responses show up. I end up with a whole line of emails when all I want to do is see the most recent. Why doesn’t “delete” mean “delete?” Original: Whenever I get an email with something to open, I just get a blank screen. For instance, I tried to add another email address, but had to change the password for that address. When I got the change the password email and clicked on it, I couldn't do it because I got a white screen with Only the time on top. Same happens if I get an attachment, coupon, etc. All I can do with this app is open word emails. One plus is I don't get the "Rate it" popup I was constantly getting before, in which I rated it many times and nothing was improved.
  • I don’t want to sound entitled Apr 14, 2020

    By EgyptEntitledNot
    Yahoo! has truly become a terrible email service in the last 3 years or so. Before, there would be one or two SPAM emails that would get through the SPAM filters, in place, every month or so. Now it seems that everyday there are multiple SPAM emails that make it through to my inbox and it’s fairly annoying. I have to keep marking them all SPAM but that’s not stopping anything. I’ve had this email address for 10 years, but it’s time for a change. I’ll be looking to close all of my Yahoo! email accounts and move over to Gmail. I’ve noticed that the email address I’ve had for 12 years with Gmail has not gotten more than a handful of SPAM emails in my inbox over the last 12 years! It will definitely take a few weeks to change my email address with every online account I have, but it will be worth it once I have an effective SPAM filter in place by having Gmail email addresses. UPDATE: Someone on the Yahoo! development team responded to my review, but did not thoroughly READ my review. Suggesting that I make sure to mark the emails spam when it clearly states in my review that I have been marking them all spam and it’s not working. Then follows up with they’ll let the “anti-spam team” know. Laughing - What a joke!

    I have used Yahoo mail for about 15 years. I noticed last week that my emails were disappearing. I have done everything I know to do- changed password, reported it, called them, uninstall/reinstall app, clear cache, everything. They won't help me until I pay for the customer service people $12.99 per month to look at my account, and they will not guarantee they can help, but you will be charged monthly, regardless. I have lost pertinent information that I had stored in folders. Things I can't get back, like emails from my son who is in the military, etc. They claim if you report it within 7 days that they can get your emails back, which I did, but I haven't gotten any back. Matter of fact, more and more disappear daily. I have now made 4 reports to no avail.
  • Worst Ever: Yahoo Mail - The Newer Crappier AOL Oct 13, 2021

    By KingSnarkle
    Remember how horrible AOL was, and how excited we all were to leave that mess? Well let me introduce hot mess 2021 - Yahoo Mail. They are nice enough to sell your personal data to their partner sites without your permission. Go to settings. Go to Privacy Dashboard. Click the underlined words “privacy dashboard”, and you can see each individual partner, what data they are collecting, and who they’re selling it to. If you have 30 minutes to spare you can go into each partner and “opt out”. But wait…..there’s more. In the case of three of their partners, you will need to perform this action on a daily basis, because Yahoo Mail loves you so much that they’re gonna opt you right back in the following day. I’ve sent feedback regarding this. Especially since I am a resident in a State that has very specific guidelines regarding the sale of my personal data, and my ability to opt out of such practices. I don’t expect a response or resolution- that would be too much like “the right thing to do”, so I will post this as fair warning to anyone using, or looking to use this mail platform- They’re going to sell your data. They’re going to make it as difficult as possible to opt out. They’re going to make it difficult for you to even know it’s happening. I wish I could give them half of a star.

    Not getting any notifications when I receive email. Yahoo+ account. No sound, no number on the icon, no symbol in the notification bar. But if I run the troubleshooter under notifications, it works fine - I get a sound, notification bar, number on the icon. So my settings and permissions are correct. Just nothing happens when I get an email. Similar problem last June, but then the troubleshooter failed. Finally got fixed in an update. I have 5 email apps on my phone. No problem with any of them except Yahoo, which has failed twice in 7 months. Tried all kinds of ways to get tech support back in June, none of it helped.
  • Spoofing issues on my yahoo emails Sep 5, 2021

    By AliceJ21
    A few months ago I started having problems with my iPhone and iPad and everything was giving me problems! Called every Technician I could use and they thought I was crazy because they said there was no problems with my devices or WiFi! I kept having issues with my emails going missing or I was receiving emails from PayPal that said I owed a payment or mentioning my card! I don’t have a card with PayPal but have account that I’m paying off with PayPal Credit! Issues constantly and money came out of my bank account from PayPal then received a package with similar items I had recently viewed from 4Patriots only not the same and no invoice and item was no good! All this to say I have been hacked from my yahoo emails because security is bad! My personal information is all over the internet now! Had to erase my phone completely last night because the problem has grown so big! Using my iPad right now hoping they don’t get in it! BEWARE!!!!! Spoofing is a horrible issue with your email accounts and can turn your life upside down it has mine! My bank is threatening to stop my account from online banking and it. Isn’t my fault! Not always on your email provider! 🙁🙁

    It seems like every 6-8 months an update occurs that renders the app completely useless on my phone. This most recent update causes the app to completely freeze up when I attempt to write an email or respond to one. Eventually the system recognizes the frozen app and the forced to shut it down.

  • Why did you change the order of e-mails after deletion??? Feb 11, 2018

    By Greg Da Man
    For some reason they switched the order of viewing for your e-mails. I like to view my oldest unread e-mail message first and work my way up. It used to be that the next newest e-mail would appear after you deleted the e-mail that you were looking at. Now it sends you to the older e-mail instead of the newer e-mail making you swipe right to go to your next e-mail. This is counterintuitive and annoying! I will go back to using the E-mail app built in to iOS until this problem is fixed. Sorry Yahoo… The resolution of text and images is deformed and hard to read usually. You're still better off using the built in E-Mail app on the bottom of the home screen, but this Yahoo Mail app is improving continuously. Maybe Yahoo will improve the tiny display format that usually makes it hard to read your e-mails in the next update. I know they can do better.
  • Yahoo Small Business Email Disruption! May 15, 2019

    In the 11+ years of having 4 (actually 5) small business accounts with Yahoo, I have NEVER experienced the exasperating and costly issues that have wreaked havoc on my business and communications since the migration on April 24 of 2019. It has taken 2 weeks for us to simply access our business emails. Have not spoken to anyone after multiple tries and tireless hours in hold. Microsoft and GoDaddy actually both answer their calls and solve issues. NOW, I must access my paired down (and, yes soon to be closed) Yahoo email accounts through an app on my phone. Have you heard of call centers? Staffing up to offer customer solutions? Would like to hear projected revenue loss numbers if you were shut down for 2 weeks. I’ll bet our percentages would be the same... What separates us is that I would never treat customers like this and I would answer my customer calls.
  • Top email untouchable Oct 20, 2017

    By StaYou
    I’ve been using this app for years and it has been great the last year. Even if something seemed strange one day, a bug fix update was done before I even had time to look into it. But, I just lowered my rating to 4 stars because this one issue has been annoying me for several weeks! On my iPad, I cannot select the top email in the inbox. If I select the one below it, I can also mark it for deletion, but I cannot select it to read it. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app, restarted my device, etc, but to no avail. This is super annoying and I see another user is experiencing the same issue! I’ll go back to five stars once this is fixed because the app is otherwise great! Answer to developer: It happens only on iPad and both on cellular and WiFi. I don’t have yahoo mail pro, but I do have a paid account for ad free mail although that is not an issue in the app.
  • Fixed in record time. Jul 21, 2021

    By Harley-Charlie
    I tried using the chat feature. It’s useless. There is no way to contact the developer so I hope this will work. Suddenly my app started freezing up and shutting down. Every time I open it, it immediately shuts down. I restarted my phone. Same issues. I went into the App Store and discovered there was an update. So I updated it. Same thing. It opens and closes immediately. I paid the extra money for the app. It’s been working great until about 1-1/2 hours ago. I hope the developers will see this and fix the problem. The mail app that comes with the phone is very insufficient when it comes to reading email. I found a phone number to contact. This was a systemwide issue for iPhones. It was fixed within a couple of hours after I contacted them. Unfortunately, it appears that Verizon has bought Yahoo.
  • Bucking the FLAT minimalist trend --- FINALLY Mar 20, 2019

    By webmonkeymon
    Yahoo! To Yahoo for not giving up on usability. Now when I view email I get a company logo or Facebook icons. And the yahoo mystical logo on the right. Mammals reintroduced color vision and two eyes I front are for better depth perception, why are designs today reverting? Well with exception for f yahoo... IMHO Apples interface is about money not use ability. They are so international that the make their navigation easy to translate internationally to save money. So instead of add, you get + or instead of menu you get a triple hyphen. IMHO Steve jobs was a control freak money mongrel more than he was a visual artist. He dressed colorless and flay to because he was colorless. Pixar made him rich and they kicked him out of their creative process. See creativity Inc Colorful is useful. Thanks yahoo for helping me see quickly the story of my email and leading the way past apple arrogance. There is hope, YAHOO!
  • Notifications fixed in latest update Jun 25, 2018

    By Cori C.
    Update: 4.5 stars The notifications finally got fixed for me with the latest update, and the badge on the app now finally shows the correct number as well. My only complaint now is the ads that show up in the list of emails that you have to scroll through. I think that the ad at the top of the list is enough. Previous review: This app has become nearly useless to me because it doesn’t show me incoming emails in notifications. At first just the badge notification (the number on the app) stopped working and showed either nothing or the number of new emails since I had last opened the app (which wasn’t always accurate), but now it shows no badge and it also doesn’t send push notifications when new emails come in. I have tried re-downloading the app numerous times (which is how it got messed up in the first place, I re-downloaded the app to free up space), and no luck. If this doesn’t get resolved, I’m gonna find a new mail app.
  • Where is Unsubscribe in the Yahoo app or account? Nov 3, 2021

    By jackgrl
    I do not see it (Unsubscribe)—in the icons that you can control at the bottom of your screen. When I go to customize your inbox, it’s not there either. It’s not in settings, nor notifications. When I’m on my inbox page, I tap on the purple ‘y’ in the upper left top of my inbox screen, and it takes me to my account. Settings, notifications, setting up your inbox, etc. I cannot find where I can unsubscribe right there and then. However, where I DO INDEED see where I have the option to unsubscribe,—-is in the merchant that is sending me their unwanted annoying email. At the bottom of THEIR email, it gives you the option Unsubscribe “here”. Thanks, annoying spam merchant!!….. but where is ‘unsubscribe’ in my Yahoo app? I’d rather unsubscribe directly from Yahoo! Thanks. I hope someone from Yahoo! gets back to me regarding this issue.
  • Lost my email and forgot my password Apr 22, 2018

    By robingail76
    At first I was going in circles, every time I tried to reset my password it asked me if I was a computer and then took me back to the exact same screen. This was while I was on Microsoft edge. Then I found a site to ask LinkedIn help questions. The Linked in help directed me to switch to a different browser. So I switched to chrome. Then I was given a screen where I had the chance to put in my new email so I could get a password to get in to my LinkedIn account. They sent me an email so I could prove I was actually who I said I was. I was given a choice to upload my passport or drivers license. I chose to upload my drivers license. After about a week an email came through asking me to link my email to LinkedIn and then another email to change my password and I eventually got in. LinkedIn help was very helpful and walked me through all the steps.
  • Needs one critical thing... Jan 24, 2022

    By Lala33
    I have a lot of e-mails that I need to delete. When I type keywords in the search field to delete a bunch of specific e-mails and fill in the circle for 2021 to select e-mails received in 2021, it doesn’t delete every e-mail from 2021, just the ones displayed on the screen. When I continue scrolling, there are more that haven’t been selected. Please make it easier to delete multiple e-mails. I thought it was just the app, but I had the same issue in the desktop version. I would like to type specific keywords for the e-mails I want to delete, select all (which would select every e-mail with those keywords from multiple years), and delete all of them, not some of them. This is the second time I’ve requested this. Hopefully, someone who can add this to future updates is reading these reviews.
  • Best email app Nov 8, 2018

    By Letgo Kate
    Wherever I am, whatever device I’m on-even away I can access my emails. Computer device crashes no worry just access yahoo from somewhere else and I never miss a beat. It gives me headlines on my devices and an option to read, delete, even mark as read but keep. Emails I keep for easy access to sites, sentimental reason or because it holds info I need to save, are kept safe. There is never a worry that if a device crashes or simply running slow, my “must keep emails” are safe and will not be lost. On top of everything yahoo allows you to keep an insane number of emails. I can get up to 50+ a day and don’t always get to delete them everyday. Yahoo was the cloud before there was the cloud and as an apple and hp user I can say yahoo is better then the cloud that despite statements to the contrary DO LOSE “cloud backed up emails photos etc”.
  • Good but could be improved. Aug 2, 2019

    By JRLB12457
    I’ve been using Yahoo Mail for about 17 years now, and still have all my email going back to the beginning, which is really great. I do like it but there are some features that could use improvement. (1) I don’t know why they got rid of the feature that allows you to click on a sender in order to add that person to your contacts. Now it’s a laborious process to add someone to your contacts. (2) Also lately when I underline a word the underlining automatically goes to the space before of the word as well. (3) The search function could really be improved. You cannot search for phrases, only for individual words, and even then, if the letters make out part of another word those results appear too (e.g., if you are searching for “ward,” your search results will include “toward,” “backward,” “forward,” etc.
  • A little buggy with iOS 11 update? Oct 6, 2017

    By Skthink
    I’ve been using the Yahoo Mail app on my iPad and iPhone for several years and generally find it superior to the native Apple Mail app in terms of functionality and responsiveness. However, since updating to iOS 11 and subsequently updating the Yahoo Mail app, I’m noticing a quirk or two. For example, occasionally I am unable to open the first email in a given folder (or it takes a very long time to open). There’s nothing special about its contents, and other messages in the folder open normally. But I have to either open the second message in the queue in full screen and and arrow back to the first, or close and reopen the app in order to access that first email. I hope these little bugs are addressed in the next update and I can again say this is a five star app.
  • Yahoo Mail Oct 1, 2018

    By Lamietra
    There should be a better way to remove email that your getting. I’m receiving email that I’ve never even looked up. Why is our email able to be sold? Is that not against our privacy so, seems like we as the person owning the email should be able to have some rights that we can refuse any and all email that we never signed up for, period. You cannot even unsubscribe this disgusting dating crap. Thinking of just going completely off because there’s no way I’ll ever be able to get this stuff off trying to remove the emails one by one. There’s some people that would want all this but, not me. As it is I’m unable to feel like dealing with it medically and physically. Is there anything at all I can do to get rid of these emails quicker. Thank you in advance for responding to my review I appreciate it!!
  • Great app. 1 annoying oversight Mar 1, 2018

    By Hunt Frank
    I’ve been using Yahoo Mail app for a while now and it’s been pretty helpful. The interface is good. Pretty smooth. The ads aren’t too distracting or taking up too much bandwidth (unlike desktop version). But just noticed an annoying oversight in the programming... you can’t write a list of email addresses on another app (say Notes) separated by comma, then paste it directly into the address bar. It works on Gmail and Outlook mobile apps, but not Yahoo. Yahoo Mail please fix this! (Then when I tried to do this on a web browser on my phone and sending an email that way, it can paste into the address bar OK, but as soon as I touch another part of the email, it sends right away... I tried it twice (in case I accidentally pressed send) and both time same thing.)
  • Jan 19, 2022

    By Kara McD
    TY for fixing previous notification issue. Trying to find if we can customize options at the bottom of an email (move, forward, reply all, etc) to make it easier. Otherwise, mostly reliable and the ads help keep it free, so they're a necessary evil....as long as they don't become noisy or intrusive. One flaw is that clicking on a phone notification opens Yahoo but not to most recent emails. Kinda takes me to where I was last when browsing mail. Room for improvement.
  • Great app one small flaw Jul 16, 2021

    By Timc266
    I like this app I have no problems with its functionality. Perhaps others should update it if having functional issues. One thing that would make it perfect in my opinion (thus deserving of 5 stars) is if one had the ability to change the sound that is used for notifications of new mail received. I tried doing so in both phone settings and in app settings to no avail. One of the main reasons I switched to this app instead of using the Mail app in iOS was because for the last month or so (maybe longer) the iOS Mail app was not receiving pushed mail from Yahoo. It was before because I paid for that ability from Yahoo (paid so that POP mail would be supported). I guess Yahoo decided to stop that service or make it slow or whatever maybe to push (no pun intended) their own Mail app. It's fine. I'm not too disappointed. (I will be stopping payments for that though) Anyway, like I wrote, the main reason I got the app was so I could get mail as it's pushed to the server and now that's happening again. But the sound is too much like other notifications (like Tweet notifications and calendar reminders) so I can't tell by sound alone what just occurred on my phone. The sound is too much like other notifications in other words. So if we could change that notification sound that would be awesome. It would make the app perfect, IMO. I already submitted this as feedback in the app but I thought I'd write a review about it as well.

    Has been an email provider for years with very few issues. Until I lost track of the password to a longstanding email address of mine. When I finally got to talk to someone there to help recover or change the password. I was told be the lady that she could see my password on her screen, but would not give it to me or change it uses I paid $12+ per month and had to pay for 12 months in advance. So make sure to keep that password safe or an extra $150.00 ready to pay their ransom.

That chat bot is a joke and I can't find a human to ask. I do like that you're able to make a bunch of separate inboxes. I like that feature a lot that's why I use this mail.
  • Great except for the “Deals in this Email” that dramatically slow you down Nov 23, 2019

    By jsmithdmi
    I’ve used the iPhone Mail app well...since I’ve had my first iPhone. I’ve also always had a yahoo email address, and had seen they completely overhauled the yahoo app a little while back. I tried it and it was fantastic!! It made moving through all the mail (including junk mail) so much easier and quicker by simply swiping from email to email! However then the “deals in this email” started popping up and that wouldn’t clear the “unread” status. I tried emailing support to ask if there was a way to disable the deals component as it was quite annoying to have to back out of the message and go back in to “clear”and was given a canned response “we can’t respond to all emails so try our support page/FAQ”.....well, I also don’t have to use your app and can go back to my mail app. Then an update came out and that was gone...but then it’s back. Long story short, the app is good and user friendly...except for the pain in the behind deals from this email stuff, which if it stays will likey push me back to my native email app.

  • Pay to get emails when they arrive! Nov 4, 2020

    By Cerealkeller
    Yahoo mail basic used to be very reliable. It would notify you when you got an email and there was an inexpensive one time fee to remove ads. In the past year or more, the app only checks for mail a few times an hour and notifies you, when it checks, if you have any new mail. It’s important that I get certain emails immediately. I wear an Apple Watch for that specific purpose, well that and for text messages. Because I can’t hear or feel the phone often times when it notifies me. The point is, with the paid option, I can get my emails when they arrive! It’s ridiculous I have to pay for it though. And ads? I paid, what was intended to be a one time fee, to remove ads from the Yahoo mail app years ago, and for some reason they just started displaying ads again and there was nothing I could do about it. Am I happy with the app? Yeah, it performs extremely well, and I am generally happy with it. But the fact I am forced to pay a subscription to make it perform basic functionality is unacceptable.

  • Frustrating Jan 23, 2018

    By Soniaylenin
    I’m adding more stars because three days later I’m finally able to use my second email. However I still can’t delete it if I wanted to. So I finally tried the app. I’ve been using my iPhone mail app for years. But I am so frustrated with the yahoo app right now. I added my account and everything was fine but then I added a second yahoo email, that one doesn’t show the key next to it like my primary email does. Well the second one never finished loading and I can’t do anything with it. I added the second one again a different way and that time it showed the key next to it and download fully. The frustrating part is that I can’t delete the one without the key next to it. It is just sitting there doing nothing. I tried deleting the other ones and basically leaving the app with no open accounts, added the main one again and it comes back with it. I tried deleting the app and downloading it again and it is still there. If I can't get it deleted I will not use this app at all!
  • I have Yahoo! basic were I don’t pay anything for it Apr 17, 2021

    By MABasenjis
    The only thing I don’t like about this and the reason I give it only two stars is not only do I get advertisements at the top of my email inbox but sometimes I get spam emails in my inbox instead of going into my spam folder and when I ask Yahoo! about this they tell me to upgrade to where I have to pay $.99 so I won’t get those spam emails or the ads up at the top of my email inbox that’s another annoying thing if it’s free then you shouldn’t have to pay anything to have the ad removed if you say you just like the ad you shouldn’t have to pay anything for an email service unless it’s a business account and you have a lot of other features and with me I just go ahead and send emails every once in a while and this is the same account as I’ve had for about five or six years since I opened my email address account and that’s my opinion of Yahoo! basic if I don’t want the ad they say it’s called the Yahoo! pro program and I don’t want to pay that because when I signed up for Yahoo! basic I was looking for a free and non- ad based email and that’s what Yahoo! was I know they have do you have to use Yahoo! pro if you don’t want the advertisements at the top why should you have to pay if it’s a free service for no advertisements why is it deleting enough

  • Terrible Nov 18, 2021

    By JayJay28282
    Update: The original complaints have stopped, but I still don’t like it. I get the same spam over and over again...Squarespace is about to delete my nonexistent account and I have to update my credit information. I send every email to Spam and I’ve been doing it for at least a year. Does Spam mean anything? Is there no way for Yahoo to stop our spam? Also, if I send an email to 3 people and one responds, I read it and delete it. Another responds and both of the responses show up. I deleted the first one; why is it there? I delete them both, and the 3rd person responds, so all 3 responses show up. I end up with a whole line of emails when all I want to do is see the most recent. Why doesn’t “delete” mean “delete?” Original: Whenever I get an email with something to open, I just get a blank screen. For instance, I tried to add another email address, but had to change the password for that address. When I got the change the password email and clicked on it, I couldn't do it because I got a white screen with Only the time on top. Same happens if I get an attachment, coupon, etc. All I can do with this app is open word emails. One plus is I don't get the "Rate it" popup I was constantly getting before, in which I rated it many times and nothing was improved.
  • I don’t want to sound entitled Apr 14, 2020

    By EgyptEntitledNot
    Yahoo! has truly become a terrible email service in the last 3 years or so. Before, there would be one or two SPAM emails that would get through the SPAM filters, in place, every month or so. Now it seems that everyday there are multiple SPAM emails that make it through to my inbox and it’s fairly annoying. I have to keep marking them all SPAM but that’s not stopping anything. I’ve had this email address for 10 years, but it’s time for a change. I’ll be looking to close all of my Yahoo! email accounts and move over to Gmail. I’ve noticed that the email address I’ve had for 12 years with Gmail has not gotten more than a handful of SPAM emails in my inbox over the last 12 years! It will definitely take a few weeks to change my email address with every online account I have, but it will be worth it once I have an effective SPAM filter in place by having Gmail email addresses. UPDATE: Someone on the Yahoo! development team responded to my review, but did not thoroughly READ my review. Suggesting that I make sure to mark the emails spam when it clearly states in my review that I have been marking them all spam and it’s not working. Then follows up with they’ll let the “anti-spam team” know. Laughing - What a joke!
  • Spoofing issues on my yahoo emails Sep 5, 2021

    By AliceJ21
    A few months ago I started having problems with my iPhone and iPad and everything was giving me problems! Called every Technician I could use and they thought I was crazy because they said there was no problems with my devices or WiFi! I kept having issues with my emails going missing or I was receiving emails from PayPal that said I owed a payment or mentioning my card! I don’t have a card with PayPal but have account that I’m paying off with PayPal Credit! Issues constantly and money came out of my bank account from PayPal then received a package with similar items I had recently viewed from 4Patriots only not the same and no invoice and item was no good! All this to say I have been hacked from my yahoo emails because security is bad! My personal information is all over the internet now! Had to erase my phone completely last night because the problem has grown so big! Using my iPad right now hoping they don’t get in it! BEWARE!!!!! Spoofing is a horrible issue with your email accounts and can turn your life upside down it has mine! My bank is threatening to stop my account from online banking and it. Isn’t my fault! Not always on your email provider! 🙁🙁

    Your app won't keep updating my new emails, the only way they update is with the advertising updates on the top of my phone in notifications, and you have the audacity to charge people for your assistance. Even after I click on the notification update it still doesn't always let me see my new messages. Boy that is some sort of unscrupulous business ethics
  • Jan 22, 2022

    Yeah, it works (usually). Swapping between email accounts sometimes causes the app to become non-responsive. The fact that you have to pay to remove ads is a bit infuriating, but I guess that's on me for using Yahoo. I would 100% recommend Gmail over Yahoo.

There will be times when it says I have 1 unread email, but there are no new emails in my inbox, and I have to constantly refresh it to get the email into my inbox. I like the icons for all the emails.
  • It gets email! Feb 17, 2018

    By Tmprmntl13
    Outside of retrieving email, this app is not very user friendly. The Apple email app, which is already present and cannot be deleted, is equally as good, if not better. Or there are other apps like gmail that are cleaner and easier to use, even with yahoo accounts. After the initial review (above), Yahoo contacted me to ask me to tell them how to make their product better. I will try to put this into perspective. The Yahoo app is like a stiff version of Apple mail. Things are placed awkwardly and do not function smoothly or easily. And when I set up an account, my first attempt didn't go as I wanted it to. So I set up a second, duplicate account, thinking I could delete the first. But the app will only allow me to delete the correct account. The incorrect one does not show under Manage Accounts. The only way I can see to eliminate it is to kill the app and start over. As stated previously, my review is that until Yahoo does their own homework, there are better apps to handle your email. I recommend trying a side-by-side comparison with this app, the Apple app and the Gmail app. Then you can make up your own mind. I would lay odds that the Yahoo app is your first choice...to delete.
  • My honest review Nov 7, 2017

    By Dasleeper
    Yahoo Mail was my first ever email address when this whole internet thing took off. I eventually found out that I was going to need a different, or another email address because this Yahoo address was filling up fast with garage mail, or spam and my important emails were getting lost in all the spam. This was years ago, whenever all this started out and I now have 4 email addresses. I use each email address for a specific purpose, but I still use my Yahoo mail for getting information from the net knowing that whoever I’m getting the information from is going to sell my email address to a spammer, that’s why they’re is nearly 10,000 emails in my inbox and I have to delete another nearly 2000 garbage emails in my Spam Folder every week. It seems like the more I Unsubscribe to many of the emails the more I get. It seems like Yahoo is nothing more than a Spam destination, but now some of my other email addresses are more spam lately. Although you could say I’m not exactly happy with Yahoo mail, I very much like Yahoo Financial & Yahoo News. It keeps me updated on the things that I’m interested in...
  • No Setting For Notification Sounds Jun 30, 2018

    By Daman M
    Deleted app finally. I linked yahoo mail through gmail. I highly recommend. More flaws to report with yahoo app. I am using an iPhone X. Mail would disappear from the inbox if I clicked on a new mail notification. Would take hours to appear back. If I used the search to find an old email it would find the email and when I click on it the email it would just load and load an nothing would appear. I finally had to forward the email to gmail so I could view it. Also why should one have to pay to remove annoying ads which aren’t even applicable to what I am interested in. Worst app ever. Minus one star for not being able to change sounds for incoming & outgoing mail. If you have an iPhone you are stuck with the generic default notification and can’t change it at all in the settings of the app or in the settings for the iPhone. Second minus star that they show irrelevant ads in the top of the inbox. I don’t want to pay a dollar a month to get rid of it. If you want people to use your app rather than the default mail setting in the iPhone then get rid of that like gmail and outlook have in their free versions. Update to the developer’s reply. That is untrue. Both the Outlook and Google mail apps. let you change sound notifications within the “settings” of the widget themselves and not in the actual Apple settings.

    I have used Yahoo mail for about 15 years. I noticed last week that my emails were disappearing. I have done everything I know to do- changed password, reported it, called them, uninstall/reinstall app, clear cache, everything. They won't help me until I pay for the customer service people $12.99 per month to look at my account, and they will not guarantee they can help, but you will be charged monthly, regardless. I have lost pertinent information that I had stored in folders. Things I can't get back, like emails from my son who is in the military, etc. They claim if you report it within 7 days that they can get your emails back, which I did, but I haven't gotten any back. Matter of fact, more and more disappear daily. I have now made 4 reports to no avail.
  • Worst Ever: Yahoo Mail - The Newer Crappier AOL Oct 13, 2021

    By KingSnarkle
    Remember how horrible AOL was, and how excited we all were to leave that mess? Well let me introduce hot mess 2021 - Yahoo Mail. They are nice enough to sell your personal data to their partner sites without your permission. Go to settings. Go to Privacy Dashboard. Click the underlined words “privacy dashboard”, and you can see each individual partner, what data they are collecting, and who they’re selling it to. If you have 30 minutes to spare you can go into each partner and “opt out”. But wait…..there’s more. In the case of three of their partners, you will need to perform this action on a daily basis, because Yahoo Mail loves you so much that they’re gonna opt you right back in the following day. I’ve sent feedback regarding this. Especially since I am a resident in a State that has very specific guidelines regarding the sale of my personal data, and my ability to opt out of such practices. I don’t expect a response or resolution- that would be too much like “the right thing to do”, so I will post this as fair warning to anyone using, or looking to use this mail platform- They’re going to sell your data. They’re going to make it as difficult as possible to opt out. They’re going to make it difficult for you to even know it’s happening. I wish I could give them half of a star.

    Not getting any notifications when I receive email. Yahoo+ account. No sound, no number on the icon, no symbol in the notification bar. But if I run the troubleshooter under notifications, it works fine - I get a sound, notification bar, number on the icon. So my settings and permissions are correct. Just nothing happens when I get an email. Similar problem last June, but then the troubleshooter failed. Finally got fixed in an update. I have 5 email apps on my phone. No problem with any of them except Yahoo, which has failed twice in 7 months. Tried all kinds of ways to get tech support back in June, none of it helped.

    It seems like every 6-8 months an update occurs that renders the app completely useless on my phone. This most recent update causes the app to completely freeze up when I attempt to write an email or respond to one. Eventually the system recognizes the frozen app and the forced to shut it down.

    ...maybe 30+ years. I’m a long-term user, short term hater. A year or two ago, after Yahoo’s biggest upgrade I could ever remember, learning to use Yahoo with all the bugs it brought was sheer agony. For years, I was able to log into our 3 email accounts ‘once’ and then switch between accounts with a keystroke - that went away. Working through the problems finally ended with losing my departed wife’s account being lost...with all it’s history that we’re memories of her. Then I entered the ‘season of constant login’ and absolutely hate how you set THAT up. I struggled with access via ANY browser but usually use Chrome. I’m still having TIME CONSUMMING problems with that - YES I HAVE YOUR APP on my iPhones and iPads! The use of the Yahoo app is a time synch and a constant source of frustration...if not un-Christian thoughts: more times as not, I don’t get the tool bar at the bottom to reply, move or delete emails and have to start a NEW thread just to reply - business associates complain a bit when I do this. The ONLY reason I’m still with Yahoo...again, the ONLY REASON is I don’t know how to switch my personal URL over to another company and also save my ‘history’ for my remaining two accounts. Does Yahoo EVER, EVER, run a new release through a ‘test group’ for feedback?
  • Doesn't Allow Scrolling Mar 6, 2019

    When you try to advance to new emails further down the scrolling section of emails in the Inbox, Spam folders as well as your own created folders the app automatically scrolls up enlarging the scroll bar as it advances back up on its own making it 100% impossible to scroll down to any and all emails that are off the screen and thus further down. The only way to get to them is to go to Full Screen View on one email and using the arrows to advance down to earlier previous emails. Because of this it makes this app 100% impossible to use and thus really not worth any Stars whatsoever. Especially since this problem has been going on for months (since well into 2018) and all Feedback complaining about it has been ignored and it's only gotten worse with each update to this app. It used to only effect the Spam folder, then it also affected Created Folders and the Archives folder and most recently it's been effecting the Inbox as well. Thus with each time the problem has made the Yahoo Email App 100% impossible to use and requiring going to Safari or a Computer to get it to actually work right. With Yahoo also ignoring Feedback on this problem for months and not fixing it in any update this app is 100% NOT WORTH IT!

    still having the same issues. Nothing has been fixed Having issues upon opening. When clicking on the icon it goes to one mailbox instead of the six that I have. I have to close it out every time completely before they all reappear. Sometimes there's nothing there except for the page that wants me to sign back in to each account. This is fixed immediately.

    My PROBLEM/COMPLIANT is Yahoo continues to automatically add contacts to my contact list, even from all my Spam mail folder, without me telling it to. NOT a GOOD THING Yahoo. See previous review info below with details about what is going on. "Yahoo/App allows very little user control, yet their security seems to be very suspect. For example, every address, even from Spam emails, is added to your contacts list. Yahoo should NEVER be taking it on themselves to decide who I want in my contact list. I should have control of who I want added to my contacts, not the other way around. Certainly not Spam addresses! And once they are added, Yahoo makes sure you cannot batch delete them. (Here's an example of how many unwanted contacts are added in a short period of time): I had just cleaned out my contacts about a week ago. Today I had to go in and individually delete another almost 80 unwanted addresses. Should NEVER have happen in the first place Yahoo!!! Who wants Spam addresses automatically added to your contacts list? And if you want help, have a suggestion, or need to write Yahoo for assistance, there is never any help or response. They make sure their privacy is intact, they just don't respect ours."

    I really hate how Yahoo has changed and I totally dislike this new Yahoo email!! I've been trying to receive a verification code from Facebook so I can log back in and I'm not receiving any code. I tried emailing technical support for help but was sent an email telling me that they rarely get to technical email issues. So I really don't feel like jumping around for help. I'm done with this new changed Yahoo wished I still had the old account. I'll be deleting my Yahoo email. 🤦‍♀️🙄😠
