    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😡

    Loving this app. So easy to navigate. The only down side is if you put the maximum money on your card they take of 10.00. When it use to be £2.50 every time. Also they need to put up the amount instead of it being £249.99. Make it up to £250. Cheers

    Update: I am now able to view new incoming emails, you get a pass, for now. Previous: Since last update I cannot view new incoming emails. What's worse is I have 2-factor authentication setup and when I try to login on other devices, I'm met with a "can't load webpage" error from the yahoo mail app. I'm willing to change my rating but this is ridiculous! I always thought it would be a pain to switch email providers, but now it's looking extremely tempting.

    Compared to Gmail, this app is perfect. I can actually do basic things like sort my mail into folders. Though yeah, I do legitimately find it useful, easy to use, easy to delete junk mail without having to open it (Gmail wants me to "archive" things, and I don't know what that is, or why it's prioritized over deleting them). Mostly I just hate the Gmail app. It's useless. This review is mostly about how much I hate the Gmail app. This app is probably just okay, but by comparison it's amazing.

    For several months after Verizon bought Yahoo! mail, the app was slow as molasses. I did everything possible to speed up the processing, like delete trash emails and/or unread emails, and mark unread emails as read, with no luck. But just in the past few days (late August 2020), the processing speed has returned to normal, as when Yahoo! was independent. The problem was indeed resolved in spring 2021 and I have had no problems since. Still my preferred email service after 20 years !
  • 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'm paying Verizon to block ads in my y7 mail. It has worked for a year but, suddenly, the ads are back. I eventually found who to contact. Ok - un/reinstall finally worked. June 6th ads were back. Reinstall didn't stop them this time. Eventually (at 2nd attempt) Google Support came up with some actions 4 me 2 take. Got rid of the ads. Till next time. Developers should ensure updates don't unflag accounts flagged for No Ads. One line of code?
  • 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.

    I've got my yahoo and Gmail in the yahoo app. I can view one or the other. It's convenient and easy. Address book could be easier to find, as there is no clear definition as to where it is. However, when I am putting in my address on emails, the name come up as hints that I am using that address. I do want to clean out my address book of those addresses that are irellavent these days. Have had this app for years now.

  • 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 care about the ads, look at the information it collects. This download site says permissions can be turned off in the settings, but I don't see that at all, just an explanation of what information they use. That's a "nope" enough, but given their history of security breaches I'm actually surprised.
  • 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!

    New phone. Downloaded yahoo. "How do I sign out?" Is it automatic? I can't figure out this format or how it works. It is SO frustrating. Where is my OLDER version app and access it? The one i just had yesterday! I do not like gmail. Will I hear from anyone about this? I never do. I STILL need to know how to log out of Yahoo Mail. PLEASE, can someone help?
  • 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!
  • Absolutely WOULD NOT recommend till bug is fixed!! May 4, 2019

    By GOVS Fan
    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."
  • 20+ year User :( Jul 15, 2020

    By Me123ues
    ...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?

    Moving emails from spam to inbox leads to the emails being permanently lost! After receiving a notification of a new email, I go to the inbox and it will take more than a minute for the email to show up. Even refreshing the inbox doesn't work. Very poor performance from Yahoo Mail. I have had a Yahoo email account for a very long time, the app used to work great, but over the last year it has only gone down hill with every update.

    The Yahoo (email) app became so annoying I had to get rid of it. On both my Android phone and tablet I had the same experience. I click on an email to read it, them come back to the original email I clicked on. The problem is, everytime a new email pops up, yahoo removes the original email I was reading. I had to go back in again to click on the same email to pull it back up. This happened all the time. So I just go directly to the Yahoo web page and go to my email from there and no problem.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

    This is easily the most annoying mail app I have ever subscribed to...and that includes original AOL with all its instability. It seems the whole purpose of the upgrade was to be so irritating through ad persistence that paying for a reasonable mail experience seems preferable. Sponsor ads not only live a zombie life...instantly reappearing after deletion...but now Yahoo makes you go through the process of telling them why you don’t want the ad...and holds mail in suspension until you answer. Hello...the ads are annoying...yes, they make Yahoo money...we get that. Before this upgrade, we could at least block delete unwanted mail...now it’s a tog-of-war between ad bots and humans over individual emails...and the bots are winning. Before posting this, I read a number of reviews...the developer comments basically boil down to “pay or suffer”...thanks for nothing Yahoo.

    For several months after Verizon bought Yahoo! mail, the app was slow as molasses. I did everything possible to speed up the processing, like delete trash emails and/or unread emails, and mark unread emails as read, with no luck. But just in the past few days (late August 2020), the processing speed has returned to normal, as when Yahoo! was independent. The problem was indeed resolved in spring 2021 and I have had no problems since. Still my preferred email service after 20 years !

    I've got my yahoo and Gmail in the yahoo app. I can view one or the other. It's convenient and easy. Address book could be easier to find, as there is no clear definition as to where it is. However, when I am putting in my address on emails, the name come up as hints that I am using that address. I do want to clean out my address book of those addresses that are irellavent these days. Have had this app for years now.
  • 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.

    Not really used it much but i like the layout of the e-mail it's nice and easy to use when i do use it. The only irritating thing is the pop ups for ads etc which i don't like as it is rather annoying and can't seem to be turned off. Still trying it out. No 5 stars as yet. Still getting pesky ads and i'm not paying for the upgrade to remove ads. Not at £3.99 or whatever it is. I will stick with the annoying ads i guess.
  • 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.
  • 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!!
  • 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.
  • May 30, 2021

    By Kristopher Callaway
    Update: I am now able to view new incoming emails, you get a pass, for now. Previous: Since last update I cannot view new incoming emails. What's worse is I have 2-factor authentication setup and when I try to login on other devices, I'm met with a "can't load webpage" error from the yahoo mail app. I'm willing to change my rating but this is ridiculous! I always thought it would be a pain to switch email providers, but now it's looking extremely tempting.
  • 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'm paying Verizon to block ads in my y7 mail. It has worked for a year but, suddenly, the ads are back. I eventually found who to contact. Ok - un/reinstall finally worked. June 6th ads were back. Reinstall didn't stop them this time. Eventually (at 2nd attempt) Google Support came up with some actions 4 me 2 take. Got rid of the ads. Till next time. Developers should ensure updates don't unflag accounts flagged for No Ads. One line of code?
  • 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?)
  • Could be better... Mar 15, 2018

    By SewSweet
    The app works just fine and I’ve had no problems with it’s operation. However, there are a couple of things that don’t sit well with me. First, I like using the Apple mail app because I can see all of my email accounts in one view (All inboxes) if I choose too! Not the case with the Yahoo Mail app. Secondly, I don’t like the feeling of being forced to use an app...what I mean is since I’ve added the Yahoo mail app, my Apple mail app is not syncing properly as it had prior too installing Yahoo. The only time it syncs is when I go into the Yahoo app first. I’ve removed my Yahoo email account from my Apple mail to try and reset it and we’ll see if that helps. If I continue to have problems, I may be forced to get a new main email account which is sad because I’ve had this Yahoo email for many, many years! I love the progression of new technology...but don’t just force us to change, give us better options!
  • 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!

    Moving emails from spam to inbox leads to the emails being permanently lost! After receiving a notification of a new email, I go to the inbox and it will take more than a minute for the email to show up. Even refreshing the inbox doesn't work. Very poor performance from Yahoo Mail. I have had a Yahoo email account for a very long time, the app used to work great, but over the last year it has only gone down hill with every update.
  • 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.
  • Jun 4, 2021

    By Gerri Ahern
    Deteriorating is a kind description. Two stars is generous. As a user of this app for 10+ years, I am more than frustrated. Emails drop 2 days late, the large ads in the middle of the inbox are distracting and annoying. Then there's the problem of being in the midst of reading an email and it suddenly flips to another one. Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't correct anything. Each update brings more problems. Did I mention slow loading? As frustration mounts, switching services looks better.
  • 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...

    This app seems to get worse with each update. Incredibly slow to open and load recently received emails. Sometimes I have to close the app and re open just to get them to load. Also, the emails take forever to load when you try to open them. There seems to be an issue with the spam filter? I'm getting tons of spam in my inbox and emails that should have went to my inbox are ending up in the spam folder.
  • New update makes it impossible to find anything Nov 15, 2019

    By thenorthernscar
    This new update introduced the stupid thing that everyone is doing now where you have multiple inboxes. There’s pretty much every option now excepted your deleted folder. Accidentally deleted an email and now there’s no folder for me to go into and read it. Hope it wasn’t as important as I thought it was because apparently once you delete something now, it’s instantly gone forever. Also the ads not being distinguishable from a regular email is a scummy way to get you click ads. The ridiculousness of having ads pop up in your email aside, they should be marked in some way as ads rather than looking identical to the rest of your mailbox. Instead you just have to remember while using this app that you can’t click the top “email” in your inbox. The new deals thing reads your email to provide you with coupons to stores that email you, which may be fine for some, but if they're scanning emails for coupons, they’re scanning the rest of your emails too, and Yahoo has had a data breach before so that’s fun.
  • Useful but Mail Pro Useless Jan 27, 2018

    By J0ES
    Mail pro for a year is the worst $10 I ever spent. What makes me most upset is the inability to have one of my folder which I automatically have Mail directed to up closer to my Inbox as I could in iOS app. IOS mail app worked beautifully for me until these bugs recently not allowing it to push my mail correctly. Use without ads. The star is for trying. The help button in the settings section is useless as it does not take you anywhere. I’m going back to IOS mail app as soon as bugs are fixed. Thanks for trying Yahoo! Update: I figured out the whole “Help” button thing. I had safari disabled. About the folders thing. I basically have automatically mail routed to certain folders from based on senders. No I have all my school emails go to one folder. The ability to have my “School” pinned up close to where my Inbox is. Kind of like a favorites section for the folders. Instead I have to scroll down past every folder to get to my newly received mail in my school folder. Sorry if I might not be very clear.
  • Batch Deleting? And snark? Jan 26, 2020

    By Phoebe2008
    One of the oddest things I’ve found with Yahoo Mail on mobile devices is that if I do a search for a sender, I have no option to ‘delete all’ once they appear. I have to delete each one separately. Takes FOREVER. Another, more serious concern is the apparent lack of concern for customer satisfaction. From the reviews, I’ve seen and my own experience, the attitude of those manning the help desk is “If you don’t like it, use another app.” I’d rather work with a chat bot than be subjected to sarcastic dismissal from a tech. I’ve had Yahoo Mail since 2002; it was my first email ever, but I’ve lost the nostalgic attachment. AND, I will say that nobody is going to track my Internet actions and profit on it AND insult me. Just THINKING about upgrading to the new app and being plagued with ads only to be extorted to get rid of them irritates me. Besides the latest research shows nobody clicks on ads anymore. I’m more likely to deliberately NOT shop at a website that throws an ad in my face tbh. Yahoo...you have to be bleeding customers.

  • 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!
  • Absolutely WOULD NOT recommend till bug is fixed!! May 4, 2019

    By GOVS Fan
    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."
  • 20+ year User :( Jul 15, 2020

    By Me123ues
    ...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?

    The Yahoo (email) app became so annoying I had to get rid of it. On both my Android phone and tablet I had the same experience. I click on an email to read it, them come back to the original email I clicked on. The problem is, everytime a new email pops up, yahoo removes the original email I was reading. I had to go back in again to click on the same email to pull it back up. This happened all the time. So I just go directly to the Yahoo web page and go to my email from there and no problem.

    Sent letter with attachments to City Council members and my own Gmail address vua Yahoo mail. The Gmail version I received is what I sent from Yahoo. But the Yahoo "sent" version is an earlier draft, missing edits and attachments! Both sent and received should be exactly the same, but they're not! Now I don't have a clue as to what the other recipients got at the city emailbox! Horrible!
  • 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.
  • Yet another improved version that is not an improvement Jan 24, 2018

    If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!!! Where is the viewing sort email by sender function? I use that to delete emails by sender and it is so much easier to clear the inbox that way. Swiping to delete a couple of emails is OK but when you have hundreds or thousands of emails to delete swiping or touching each one is not a desirable option. Before the change, I could sort by sender and highlight one email, hold the shift key click on an email way down the list which highlighted all other emails in between, hit delete and in a couple of key strokes I have deleted a hundred emails. Why take that ability away? That has been one of the major problems with gmail, you cannot sort by sender, which made yahoo mail more user friendly thus more desirable than gmail. Developers pat themselves on the back for giving users the ability to use emojis or gifs on a grand scale but take away the basic functions we use more. If a user is not interested in emojis or gifs then you have not improved anything with new and so-called improved versions you have just create a great deal of frustration and animosity for you product.
