    I was emailed that upon arrival I wasn't home to collect the parcel. That's great. Afterwards no relevant information other than the one saying that my parcel was on the way to a collection point. The driver could have left a card or another email could have been sent telling me what to expect, but that wasn't the case. Because the message was sent to me at 11:55, I thought that collecting it five hours later would have been possible. Not the case. So I went to the shop for nothing...
  • Great app one small flaw Jul 16, 2021

    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.

    I was using the app for Gmail that automatically came with my phone and have had nothing but trouble for months. I switched over to yahoo and have only had it a few days but it's leagues better. It has all the features I loved, being able to put multiple emails from different websites and reliable notifications, but it's smoother and has even more! I really love the subscription tab so I can see tons off emails I'm subscribed to and how many they send me a week, and can even unsubscribe there!

    it's been wonderful using Yahoo mail for close to 2 decades. Thanks so much for all the efforts you are making to make it user friendly. I can't tell you guys how much you've made emailing so much fun, despite the fact that there were some difficulties in the past. Nevertheless, you've done so well.Good job. Shalom.

    Not happy with the latest update. I use Yahoo Mail Plus. Now there are these contact cards that pop up. And you can say hide the card. But you can't stop them from showing up all the time. And the help chat did not even know what I was talking about. Yahoo, you're disappointing me! And I spend money to have the good version of the Yahoo mail. My previous review: Been using it for as long as it has been available.... 10? 15? Years. Never have an issue. Android user on motorola phones always.

    I've used Yahoo mail service from the time I first entered the computer World many many years ago. I totally dislike the update that changed the format whereas when you first bring up an email, I do not like how the first thing you see is the top section showing recommendations from the sender.. You have to scroll down to see the true contents of the email. My emails from Walmart, bed and bath, Wayfair, and others has this new format. I wish I could delete that particular update.

    I really dislike some of the features in the latest version. Worst of all are the reminder cards that keep popping up if you don't respond to an email. It doesn't appear that you can get rid of them except by responding to or deleting the email. Well, suppose you don't want to respond or delete ? Terrible design !

    Strangely astounding in it's new ability to be of expert use in finding the right direction I'm to go with very little effort on my part. Since it has been a really long time since I was upset by the last time I used this email address system. I'm so glad that I was willing to open the email address system provided by the play store, I'm extremely pleased with the update of the email address to be able to get a connection to the provider. Blessed be!
  • 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.

  • 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.

    Get the update right before you release. It's takes forever to retrieve new emails. I will get a notification of an email and go to my inbox. From then it take up to 10 mins to receive the email. And the ad banner is in a horrible spot. I absolutely hate this app now. It use to be so friendly and easy to use. Update 10-11-2021 the issue is still present. Please Fix!
  • 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
  • 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!

    App used to be great.Now it won't load messages sent via html & takes forever to load other messages. It will tell me I have unread messages, but won't show the messages. I have to use my internet browser to view the messages instead of the app. Also, the search feature is useless. Direct matter what I search for, but it gets such on the loading screen. I thought maybe it was my connection, but every other app works fine. The search feature works fine in the internet browser. Bad experience. 👎
  • 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.
  • 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! 🙁🙁

    Rubbish!!!! I forgot my password, from noon to evening I was waiting for verification sent by text message, but I couldn't get the text message at all. I have removed the cache in the application too, the application has also been updated, but I still cannot get a short message. Many times I have experienced problems like this, not only today. Until now I could not access the data sent via my email.
  • Doesn't Allow Scrolling Mar 6, 2019

    By jetnova16
    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!

    This yahoo app is garbage. It doesn't always load your email or even accepts all emails, it doesn't always refresh, it freezes real bad now, it takes forever for it to load and clear or show your mail and options, it often keeps showing you still have unread mail after you have read all your mail, and it often keeps showing mail in your trash and spam even after you have cleared it.*UPDATE* tried uninstall.still doing same thing. Same Problem. I have an Android.

  • 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

    By onevoicecounts
    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.
  • 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!
  • Paid to subscribe to Pro... only one mobile device- fixed. Dec 6, 2017

    By supergrl13!
    UPDATE: I appreciated the prompt reply from service. I opted to delete and reinstall the app while emailing some logs to them, which ultimately fixed the problem and now works fine ad free on both devices. So based on the fact that I have owned this email address for so long, and frankly use it for online stores, all my logins are YM, I am somewhat committed. The spam volume is overwhelming compared to my other accounts. My unsubscribed do help, but yikes! So, the mobile app ads on IOS load after the mail which has caused me to click on the ads that slip in to the top of the list... clearly intentional, not happy. I decided to purchase the Pro. On the purchase page it stated the purchase was associated with my Apple purchase ID. I looked and searched and couldn’t find any clarification anywhere as to whether it would work on my 2 mobile devices (same Apple ID and same yahoo mail account). So I purchased the annual ad-free. BUT my iPad is still seeing the ads. I get that the desktop is different, but since I couldn’t find any details ANYWHERE, I did assume that mobile meant mobile. I even tried to find the info after the discovery, thinking shame on me for not reading the right info. Shame on you Yahoo. Give full disclosure. You know people have multiple devices.

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.

    I was emailed that upon arrival I wasn't home to collect the parcel. That's great. Afterwards no relevant information other than the one saying that my parcel was on the way to a collection point. The driver could have left a card or another email could have been sent telling me what to expect, but that wasn't the case. Because the message was sent to me at 11:55, I thought that collecting it five hours later would have been possible. Not the case. So I went to the shop for nothing...

    I've used Yahoo mail service from the time I first entered the computer World many many years ago. I totally dislike the update that changed the format whereas when you first bring up an email, I do not like how the first thing you see is the top section showing recommendations from the sender.. You have to scroll down to see the true contents of the email. My emails from Walmart, bed and bath, Wayfair, and others has this new format. I wish I could delete that particular update.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.)
  • New owner Nov 14, 2019

    By donna ree row
    When yahoo was acquired by another company I had some problems with being charged for services I wasn’t getting. It took a long time to fix. Now it’s okay, but recently they changed the yahoo logo image that shows when you open it. It used to be really pretty and pleasing to look at. Now it’s ugly and boring. I get the sense the new owners are not very with it when it comes to beauty or common sense. Update: for a time, they returned to the pretty version of their logo when the app loads. That was nice. With the latest apple upgrade its back to the one that lacks beauty. In a world filled with crud, it is a very sweet thing to have a glimpse of beauty. Do you suppose, yahoo, that you could bring back that blurred double circle of blue and lavender with “yahoo!” superimposed in white?
  • 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.

    Not happy with the latest update. I use Yahoo Mail Plus. Now there are these contact cards that pop up. And you can say hide the card. But you can't stop them from showing up all the time. And the help chat did not even know what I was talking about. Yahoo, you're disappointing me! And I spend money to have the good version of the Yahoo mail. My previous review: Been using it for as long as it has been available.... 10? 15? Years. Never have an issue. Android user on motorola phones always.
  • Oct 10, 2021

    By Ray J
    I really dislike some of the features in the latest version. Worst of all are the reminder cards that keep popping up if you don't respond to an email. It doesn't appear that you can get rid of them except by responding to or deleting the email. Well, suppose you don't want to respond or delete ? Terrible design !
  • 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!
  • Great app Aug 25, 2018

    By Alberto G-mez
    I love this app as it does update your folder almost instantaneous upon receiving an email, I think it’s a lot better than that garbage “mail” standard app that comes with iOS devices which is why I have it a 4. However to justify my 1 star absence, for every great app there’s always something that has to be bad with it. and the only thing I don’t like, I actually strongly dislike is while scrolling through an opened email, and your finger happens to land on a link while attempting to stop the scroll, the link will open. It’s at times really annoying; Especially when you’re searching for something specific within the email and you constantly have to hit the “back” button every time you stop the scroll. Hopefully there’s a fix to this! :) will be patiently waiting for it! Thank you!! UPDATE:: I’m over this app. The developer never fixed the issue I stated, I get the notification of a new email and when I click the notification it opens the app but says error try again, almost as if I didn’t have service but I’m connected to the WIFI!! Additionally I have to refresh the inbox maybe like 6 times before emails come in, again, connected to WIFI i have 300 download 300 upload. So it’s not slow. Lastly, i have to delete emails maybe 4 times a day before they actually get deleted. It’s so frustrating I’m over it i guess I’ll give iOS mail app another shot. Thanks for trying yahoo!
  • Mediocre Nov 27, 2017

    By VenestaL
    There are things to appreciate about Yahoo mail, like the appearance customizations, the organization tools and formatting options. These surpass what is offered by other providers. However I would prefer more attention be paid to those areas that are below par, like the spam filtering. Despite getting mail from legitimate sources on a regular basis, suddenly they end up in my Spam folder. Why does that happen? Why is the app not able to consistently recognize the difference? Yet I still get Viagra emails in my inbox and other rubbish. It’s nice to be able to add other email boxes to one view but then it’s impossible to filter those emails into folders. Even though ATT has a Yahoo extension I am frustrated that the app doesn’t allow me to sort them. Also photos that are inserted into an email cannot be saved which is another annoyance (although I can do this with the email app that comes with the operating system). So a mixed review for Y mail.
  • Help me see people emails among the tsunami of sales emails! Nov 29, 2018

    By Debi1226
    Can you help me prioritize/ separate emails from people and minimize emails from companies advertising sales? I unsubscribe to many, but it is only a temporary relief. I do not want to unsubscribe to all stores as they’re helpful at times. Email lists get bought and I continue to have more solicitations than I could ever care for. The downfall: I miss important personal emails among all the solicitation emails. Is it possible to create a sorting mechanism that I can turn on/off at will? Thinking you need to expand capabilities currently available. Your system has a too simplified view of sorting as excel format. By dates, when you can switch views at the top of the column: A>Z, Z>A, people> organizations? How about this: by Subject line: no solicitation indicated>sales: stores, fundraising, political messages indicated in subject or message??? High Priority (from contact list?) > low priority ( add a mechanism for me to indicate level of priority?)
  • Decent, better alternatives May 20, 2021

    By tommtjutsu
    It functions as a mail app most of the time. From time to time I will get an email but not get a notification on my phone. Other times, I will have received an email but it doesn’t show up in the app, only when I check it in a web browser, which is frustrating. The main reason it gets three stars and not four is because I constantly get a notification from the app saying “we miss you! You haven’t checked your inbox lately. See what’s new!“ There’s no way to turn that notification off and it’s extremely annoying when I check my phone thinking I got an email and I see this stupid message. It would be one thing if it happens rarely, but there have been days where it happens multiple times in the same day, even if I never actually got an email. No way to turn it off without turning off all notifications. Again, there are better alternatives to this 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
  • 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!

    App used to be great.Now it won't load messages sent via html & takes forever to load other messages. It will tell me I have unread messages, but won't show the messages. I have to use my internet browser to view the messages instead of the app. Also, the search feature is useless. Direct matter what I search for, but it gets such on the loading screen. I thought maybe it was my connection, but every other app works fine. The search feature works fine in the internet browser. Bad experience. 👎
  • 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 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.

    Following last update, my Samsung phone starting giving a optimizing app error and I discovered it was the yahoo email app apparently causing the problem. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Was great until approx August (?update?) - now (Android) performance is terrible. Every time you open the app - it loop-syncs for about a full minute - not allowing any mail access for the duration. After finally getting access, then exiting, and immediately re-starting the app - same loop/sync cycle commences - even though it had just synced. Also, when switching accounts within the app - same thing for the switched to account, and then switching right back - same cycle again (even though that mail account had just been accessed seconds ago). If not remedied shortly, will move my mail to G-Mail permanently.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Doesn't Allow Scrolling Mar 6, 2019

    By jetnova16
    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!

    This yahoo app is garbage. It doesn't always load your email or even accepts all emails, it doesn't always refresh, it freezes real bad now, it takes forever for it to load and clear or show your mail and options, it often keeps showing you still have unread mail after you have read all your mail, and it often keeps showing mail in your trash and spam even after you have cleared it.*UPDATE* tried uninstall.still doing same thing. Same Problem. I have an Android.

    ...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?

    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."

    Recently, this app keeps spamming me with "reply cards" and ads. I don't want to be spammed by "hide this card" all the time. After searching settings for ten minutes, I don't see a way to disable this yahoo spam feature. This should be off by default and not on by default. I'm a paying customer to Yahoo Mail, get your act together Yahoo. Someone at Yahoo really thinks it's a good feature to spam your users like this (by default) to paying customers?
  • You know about spam reaching inbox for months May 22, 2018

    But yahoo keeps sending to my inbox.. Tiffany and Co, Louis Vuitton are your favorite spammers. Why do I say that? They probably pay you to let them bypass the spam filter. You let them spam multiple yahoo accounts and from .eu email addresses, that means Europe. Now before you say, we will fix it, I’ve read reviews complaining of the same thing from Late 2017 and into January and February 2018. It’s May 2018. You refuse to do anything about it. Yahoo and Oath is a crap company. I’ve complained on Oaths Facebook messages and posts. You don’t even read them. Your a corrupt company that spams its members for profit. I don’t have this problem with gmail and I recommend gmail to anyone reading these reviews. You refuse to do anything about putting the spam in the spam folder( your not smart enough to do this) The spammers are smarter than your corrupt mail and spam teams. You like spam, you let them spam hundreds of millions of users, they complain, you do nothing. Fix your bad spam filter today. Oath is a spam company. You get rich off it, that’s the only reason for derelict of duty. 5 months ago someone complained here on these reviews. You haven’t and won’t fix it because they pay you to bypass the spam filter.

    I used Yahoo for over a decade. It was always my first and foremost email I went to. Now, once I am able to delete my account, I will finally rid myself of Yahoo and I will never look back. Ever. 3 different data breaches, numerous issues with being hacked, and now being charged a bill that doesn't have anything to do with me, and can't get anyone to even answer from Yahoo without paying more money. Screw Yahoo
