Zero Stars
by birdofwood on 2019/12/12 22:18
This app has the annoying quality of catching every single garbage email you get and adding it to your contact book without your permission. It is impossible to removed/delete these spamming emails from the contact book Have read others complaining about the same....yet the developer wants us to email them about what’s has been discussed here over and over again....they keep on adding every ad email address and every spamming email to your personal contact list....
Deleted emails reappear in inbox
by JoniAsh_2016 on 2019/12/12 17:50
I could not figure out why I always had over 100 emails a day. I deleted every email from a past date and logged back in later and they were all back in my inbox. I do not like this app bc my inbox never clears!

Voice dictation doesn’t work with iOS 13
by Waiting4better on 2019/12/12 11:18
Apple says it’s Yahoo!s problem but there isn’t any Yahoo! Email customer support. After only 1-2 seconds voice dictation shuts off and cursor goes back to the beginning. Works fine for all other apps. Still not fixed after the 11/21/19 update nor the 12/7/19 update. Still not fixed after 12/11/19 update.

SPAM MAIL HEADACHE
by LIFEOFLOIS on 2019/12/11 23:56
I am sooooooooo tired of all the advertising spam mail, sexual harassing titles emails, and yahoo automatically signing me up for subscriptions I know nothing about👎. Please stop selling our information...it’s a matter of time before the entire net crashes and we will have to revert back to being humans again and Actually talking-visiting one another...at times technology SUCKS👀
Great app, but some things need fixed
by audramarie18 on 2019/12/11 23:30
I love using the app for my mail! But things lately with the app are frustrating me and need fixed. I no longer get notifications when I get emails and I don’t see any badges on the app to let me know there’s new mail. I just checked today and had over 400 emails since I did not realize I had new mail cause I did not have any badges or notifications and yes I do have those settings on. Second thing, my profile picture is a picture of what I used to have on my account MANY years ago when I first got Yahoo mail when I was a teen. I cannot change the picture no matter how many times I change it, the same old one remains and I do not want it on my profile anymore. Please come up with fixes for these! Otherwise I love the app!

My recent yahoo mail experience
by bojidenny on 2019/12/11 18:11
I have had yahoo mail for years without a hiccup but shortly after I got a new iPhone 11 I no longer received updates on my iPad. Then a couple days later I no longer received new mail on the iPhone. I’m still able to see mail on my pc. I have taken the I pad and iPhone back to the Verizon store but to no avail. I have tried changing passwords but to no avail. Grrrrr!

Best Email
by Surage on 2019/12/11 08:00
1. Fast and Furious compared to other email services 2. Easy to delete from my lap top I selected easily about 900 emails in a short time and deleted about 20,000 in a very short time. While my gmail has 2044301 not a joke it is true and was blocked I was not able to send or receive emails. To delete is a pain in neck their staff also helped me to delete but unable to select not more than a 20 at a time. I purchased 100 gb for a month for $2 so because of having huge storage not worried about slow deleting process still I wish Google must help me in deleting process of emails.
Awful experience
by fshah28 on 2019/12/11 03:36
Awful experience when searching emails and downloading attachments. Gmail works the best, I wish they increase their storage capacity. Thank you
Re: update
by Maggie375 on 2019/12/11 00:41
I don’t like the update of how to place messages in folders. I prefer that once I put the email in a folder it remembers that folder for the next time. I also prefer it all at my fingertips not having to go through the forward tab then find the folders. Please. Hangs back.
Glitchy
by MnMMcCarty on 2019/12/10 22:02
Emails don’t come in or update frequently enough, even when I refresh the page. A lot of emails I open go blank within seconds, so I can’t read them. I don’t have any of these problems when I go to my yahoo mail on my web browser.

Glitch in contacts
by "Steve" from customer service on 2019/12/10 12:20
They actually reached out to me after my review (see below) and the app continues to create contacts for senders of spam emails... nothing has been done to resolve the problem. Original review... I called & talked to “Steve” in customer service about a problem with contacts in the non-Pro/free version of the Yahoo Mail app on my iPhone. The app was creating contacts without my knowledge (well over 1,000 contacts) and almost all of them were associated with spam emails I’d received both into the inbox and directly into the spam folder. “Steve” could not help me unless I gave him my credit card info so he could sign me up for the .99 per month pro version; you’d have to be an idiot to give these banana heads your credit card info when they can’t even protect your email contacts. I manually deleted every single contact (including about a hundred real contacts that I had before this happened), but one contact refuses to go away; I’ve deleted it a couple of dozen times and it always magically reappears... can’t get rid of it. I’ve deleted the app from my phone and reinstalled it several times, but the problem doesn’t go away.

Sent email no working
by paulak0389 on 2019/12/10 00:45
I’ve used this app for a while and loved it. The last week or so I’ve been trying to send emails and all my emails go to the drafts folder and never send no matter how many times I try. I’ve deleted my app, redownloaded. I even reached out for help on their site and keep getting redirected to pay for someone to help me fix what should be a simple problem. I don’t want to delete this app but I may have to.
Unread messages and other tabs are missing
by Jusfive on 2019/12/09 21:15
When I click on unread messages on my iPad and iPhone, if I click on a message and return to my unread messages it brings me back to the top messages even if I read the 200th message now. It was fine until last week when both my iPhones and iPads started found this. 4 devices same thing happening. The tabs on iPad In the bottom left are all missing now (to select unread messages and etc. (iPad 7 & Air 2)

Company LAX on PRIVACY & SECURITY, cannot be trusted with personal information.
by GTD Meister on 2019/12/09 13:15
App does the basics, some accounts hard to delete. After 18 years on Yahoo Mail, I had to move my important email to another platform due to several data hacks at Yahoo and their reprehensible, less-than-forthcoming response to data breaches. Yahoo ain’t what it once was, a pale shell of a once-great company. RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER’S RESPONSE: Yahoo, you spouting the company line and are not being truthful. Yahoo had security breaches in 2013 and 2014 and publicly acknowledged NEITHER until LATE 2016 ... and even then, only in trickles. In the meantime, private user information was available for sale on the web. The breaches were outed by other parties LONG BEFORE Yahoo did so in late 2016.

New Yahoo Mail format for iPhones
by Sadie's furmom on 2019/12/09 09:52
I miss the old format!!! I took my yahoo off my phone to re-install because I tried to save an e-mail as a draft that I had been composing and lost it. It did not go into drafts nor was it in junk or deleted messages. When I re-installed Yahoo Mail onto my iphone6, Plus, the new version loaded. It is not nearly as user friendly. I liked having all my 'folders' in sight when opening my mail. Now, I have to waste time and go to the icon on the bottom left to open my folders. Also, the OLD (and much missed) version of Yahoo Mail that I had on my iphone6, plus, when I wanted to add an e-Mail to a folder, the folder would automatically come up when I tapped 'move' - now I have to waste MORE time, going into my folders and cursoring down to the folder I want to move that e-Mail into. Wish I had never deleted the original version to re-install. I certainly won't on my iPad!!!!! And eventually, WILL change to another program for my e-mails. Too bad, I have been with Yahoo Mail for such a long time.
Software freezes for no reason
by omegatalon on 2019/12/09 08:44
The software freezes for no apparent reason, it’s times like this that I really would like to revert to the prior copy of software. Totally impractical for a business app. Test your software more thoroughly.
Contacts
by NinaMZ on 2019/12/09 05:08
There is no synchronising contacts so I cant get mails from my phone and other mails!!! Very bad!
Never Loads
by Hekvhjvghhcghjn on 2019/12/09 03:44
I spent way too much time trying to get this app to log in to my google account, but every time I log in it loads forever and never actually does anything. Makes the app worthless if you cannot log in.
“Taking longer than usual to load”
by Kayc69274927581957 on 2019/12/08 22:56
I added another yahoo mail inbox to my account and now it won’t load. I get the same error message “it’s taking longer than usual to load your inbox- please close and reopen the app” I’ve done that multiple times, done the software update and nothing works. Absolutely infuriating.

The worst experience in e-mail. Period.
by TinkerGuy84 on 2019/12/08 17:39
I have an iPhone XR 256GB unlocked. No bloatware (bought at Apple store). App crashes after one or two sentences on EVERY SINGLE EMAIL I WRITE. The entire app crashes and i have to force quit. When I reopen the app, and try to begin typing in the draft again, it crashes after a few keystrokes AGAIN. If i had some garbage five year old android device with a ton of bloatware, i would half expect this. But i run CAD viewer apps on my phone and gmail has literally never crashed. Not one time ever. AVOID AT AL COSTS.
Nicely designed app

Nicely designed app, with few issues. App is out of sync with full site. Spam filtering is not efficient.
Add Spam link to notifications view!

Notifications inconsistent
by Abigail Marie W on 2019/12/08 02:53
I enjoy the app except for when out of nowhere, on multiple occasions, my notifications just stop working. I missed 120 emails and one of them was an urgent one which caused a purchase of mine to be cancelled. I was luckily able to discuss with the distributor the situation but I fear what would happen in a more serious situation. This has happened before and each time I make sure that my notifications are turned on, which they are. I’m not sure why this is happening but if it’s something for developers to look into.
Get rid of the app web browser
by DoogieLeFou on 2019/12/08 02:41
Hey Yahoo I already have Safari, so quit trying to keep me in the yahoo mail app because I rarely stay there when I click on a link. You are just creating extra steps. And in the case of my one time free Audible credit link it was used up in your browser and worthless once I switched to Safari. Really ready to delete my account.
Terrible
by Judi Nmi on 2019/12/08 00:50
I used yahoo mail for many years, but recently it got hacked. All my outgoing emails indicated that they were from jackie welch which is not my name. Important emails were disregarded by doctors health professionals and friends were disregarded. I could not find a way to contact yahoo. I did eventually find a way to contact them and received an e mail with instructions which were difficult for a non techy person to follow. I finally changed my email mail to a gmail account. No customer support. Neverbagain
Review of new app

This new app organizes your e-mail mail, saving a time and making your life easy. The only ads are contained in a single banner at the top of your inbox. If this bothers you, you can go completely ad free for $ 0.99 per month. Could not be better!

I absolutely HATE that you do not have a delete all option. Tell me who has time to scroll down to select more emails in a busy day? Especially when you have thousands of emails because you don’t have a day set aside just to complete this task. Ughhh.
No more voice-to-text in Yahoo??
by Sad Yahoo User on 2019/12/06 16:34
At one point, you could use voice to text when composing emails, but suddenly after an update, it no longer works! Why would you take that away from users?? I have to compose emails in Notepad and then copy and paste into Yahoo. I’ve updated the app several times since then and voice to text still does not work in the Yahoo app.

Account key
by thecireyman2729 on 2019/12/06 01:34
I have had a problem accessing my account, the account key was turned on and when ever I trying Ed to access the account it will not sent the key code. I talked to a representative and she said I have to pay 9.99 $ a month for only a quick fix. I find this very annoying and all I want is a quick fix not a monthly subscription. This has been a very bad experience and I would not recommend yahoo it is ridiculous to have to pay 9.99$ a month to send an account key code for a one time use. Use gmail, account help and customer service is free not a monthly subscription.

Used to be great now they want you to pay

Mostly Good
by Sharilee21 on 2019/12/04 23:50
I use Yahoo Mail for multiple emails and it works pretty well. I have had a hard time signing in or adding an email in the past. A couple of potions that would make using easier . . . An easier way to delete large numbers of emails at one time, the ability to create “message rules” and more varieties for themes and backgrounds for each email address. But overall, extremely helpful!
App is hit or miss
by Jcdit on 2019/12/04 23:36
Since the former app (which worked very very well) has been disabled I am now forced to use this substandard app. Many of the functions that made yahoo email a joy to use are not available in this version. I know they do not allow groups which is a real bummer but with the old app there were work arounds. In the past emails were easy to move from one email account to another; now forget about it. After installing this app my email shows my 3 email accounts as well as duplicates of the same 3 accounts all of which are non-operational. Yahoo help was not very helpful either. If they can’t fix it after a few poke and hope standard responses they ignore additional information or questions. All I can say is it’s poorly designed and not very well thought out.

Link bug
by n0ah_v1rus on 2019/12/04 20:10
I love this app and have been using it for a while now. The only issue I have is that everytime I try to open a link within the app the screen goes black and I have to reset the app. Now I have to open every link in a new tab. I would love to have this issue fixed so as to make the interface a lot more fluid and simpler.
Worst app

Something’s changed
by MizzyMcKay on 2019/12/04 19:44
Normally I had no issue with this app but after the last update, I’ve noticed that I can’t open new emails or even refresh my mailbox when using data. The app works just fine on every WiFi hotspot I’ve tested it on but with the data, even when the signal’s strength is great, it just does not work. (I have a feeling it’s the app and not the data, since the data will let me do basically everything else that requires internet on my phone, except check my mail.)
Not working!!!
by New update is crap! on 2019/12/04 19:27

Junk

Have restarted my phone numerous time and reinstalled multiple times but it still doesn’t work. Don’t bother unless you want a app that don’t work.
Updated app isn’t working
by jkwood99 on 2019/12/04 18:42
Since the new update my app isn’t showing any new messages and when I try to log out and log back in it keeps telling me that Safari isn’t a secure connection and it won’t let me sign in on my phone any more.
App not syncing over cellular service
by Tigerjen99 on 2019/12/04 18:39
I’ve been using this app for years on my iPhone and iPad. Just this week I am no longer able to sync it over cellular service. Over WiFi it works great! I’m not sure what changed. Since the problem started I went ahead and updated the app but that didn’t help the problem. I also upgraded to iOS 13.2.3 on my iPad just in case but that didn’t fix the problem. I am able to sync my yahoo mail over cellular with the native mail app just not with yahoo mail app. Is there a fix for this?
Return to most recent format
by tigerfandat on 2019/12/04 18:35
I wish a fractional star was an option. I abhor this most recent e-mail format. I want to see all of my e-mails whether read or unread.

Not working right
by Kris Tidwell on 2019/12/04 18:23
It shows I have 52 unread emails. I get the not. I look in my email...nothing!! Fix it!!
Worst email app
by xMariyahh on 2019/12/04 18:10
I’m going to gmail. This app is slow & crashes at the most inconvenient times. I have important stuff in my emails & I can’t even look at them because the apps has been down for days...
Emails not updating
by taneholla on 2019/12/04 17:53
The only way for my app to update is to be on WiFi, no matter if I have great service or not. Really aggravating!!
Not refreshing
by ShelsD89 on 2019/12/04 17:46
I recently switched to iPhone and have always used this app. Recently, it won’t refresh and show my new emails. It’ll say I have new ones on the app icon, but when I open the app nothing new is showing and I know I have new emails.
Can’t check my mail
by zekula on 2019/12/04 17:42
Can’t check my emails anymore. Need to fix
No good
by Tannaa19 on 2019/12/04 17:19
Been using this app for a couple of years now. Never had problem until now. I did the latest update on 12/4/19 and it has slowed the app down tremendously. It takes forever for the app to come up or show any of my mail. Haven’t been able to check anything since the update.
Used to be great
by Phw63 on 2019/12/04 17:12
I get notifications of emails, but they are not in the inbox. They might show up a couple days later. This was after the latest update. Any way to revert to old version?
App not working
by JoePatti on 2019/12/04 16:51
For the last 2 days the app has not been working! It only works if I’m using internet! Not even with LTE or GE on does not work! All my other apps works fine but for some reason the Yahoo app doesn’t work! I can’t read my emails if I’m not online what’s going on?? Thank you.
Unable to load email
by Jinxblix on 2019/12/04 16:31
The app just stopped working. Every time I open the app to read my mail it never loads but I can see a notification that I have over 70 mail notifications. Don’t waste your time
Replaces iPhone email app
by Snowconesarecold on 2019/11/19 03:41
:::Another Update::: I’ve used this app instead of the native apple app for a few years now. It’s great and I really using it. Recently it’s had some issues where tapping a new email doesn’t open the email. There’s no amount of time you can tap to make it open. I’m writing this in hopes the developers will see it and respond. Using the App Support portion of the App Store doesn’t work. It just takes to the black hole that is yahoo support. There’s no way to get help there. Please help! Thanks!!! ::Updated with 5 stars:: I wrote a review and the developers responded. They respond to everyone’s review, that is a team that understands how to produce a product and give people what they want. You guys are great! Original review: I’ve replaced the native iPhone email app when that thing quit working correctly. This Yahoo app works better than expected. I manage yahoo and gmail addresses and all the features I need are there, except 1. That is being able to change the tone made when an email arrives. I’d give it 5 stars if that were possible. If there’s a way to change it, it needs to be easier to find. So, great app overall, I use it daily with no issues.
After AOL, yahoo.
by NotedSinger on 2018/01/28 14:27
As my title intimates, my mail requirements suddenly changed and I was searching. Several products appeared promising with a apparent good fit,but I was paranoid. I decided Yahoo was my choice primarily for the organization parameters like my own filing system. It wasn’t perfect, yet we both seem to have grown-up a bit together. I trust Yahoo is not offended by such a comment and I, certainly, have not been. I feel your App of Yahoo has become like a brother or some animus energy with which I have a relationship. WhenI turn on my mobile phone, iPad or laptop, it is Yahoo with which/whom I communicate. New growth spurts are a bit difficult, but I figure at my young age of ~71 yrs. that is normal. Please, continue your most excellent Good work. I use your App because it is familiar. All of the branches from the tree trunk are exciting and new. However, the may be grafts with new issues, new DNA with wonderful possibilities. Do not forget whose roots are in the ground. So, “PS. I love your tree.” Best wishes.
No Setting For Notification Sounds
by Daman M on 2018/06/30 15:22
Deleted app finally. I linked yahoo mail through gmail. I highly recommend. More flaws to report with yahoo app. I am using an iPhone X. Mail would disappear from the inbox if I clicked on a new mail notification. Would take hours to appear back. If I used the search to find an old email it would find the email and when I click on it the email it would just load and load an nothing would appear. I finally had to forward the email to gmail so I could view it. Also why should one have to pay to remove annoying ads which aren’t even applicable to what I am interested in. Worst app ever. Minus one star for not being able to change sounds for incoming & outgoing mail. If you have an iPhone you are stuck with the generic default notification and can’t change it at all in the settings of the app or in the settings for the iPhone. Second minus star that they show irrelevant ads in the top of the inbox. I don’t want to pay a dollar a month to get rid of it. If you want people to use your app rather than the default mail setting in the iPhone then get rid of that like gmail and outlook have in their free versions. Update to the developer’s reply. That is untrue. Both the Outlook and Google mail apps. let you change sound notifications within the “settings” of the widget themselves and not in the actual Apple settings.
I have Yahoo! basic were I don’t pay anything for it
by MABasenjis on 2019/07/09 13:42
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
Doesn't Allow Scrolling
by jetnova16 on 2019/03/06 19:34
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!!
by GOVS Fan on 2019/05/04 14:04
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."
It gets email!
by Tmprmntl13 on 2018/02/17 04:54
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.
Great except for the “Deals in this Email” that dramatically slow you down
by jsmithdmi on 2019/11/23 14:01
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.
You know about spam reaching inbox for months
by hjohnnym on 2018/05/22 06:44
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.
Not so good anymore
by upsetandforgotten on 2018/10/24 00:30
I started using Yahoo email in 2004 and liked it enough to stick with it even in the advent of gmail, hotmail, etc. But I made a major mistake: I linked some accounts. It was great for a while, with the aliases available to one click to another of my several accounts, each with their own folders. But now I can’t unlink the accounts or be rid of the useless aliases, all the accounts have similar folders AND for some reason 2 accounts must have the same password. I spent $10 and 5 hours on the phone with “help”, working with 4 different people and accomplished nothing. Now I moved 2 of the accounts to gmail. $10 would have been a bargain for the amount of time spent with me if they could help, but they could not. At times I broke out in a sweat as it seemed as if folders and then even accounts with folders of important files from years ago disappeared, but then they magically appeared again later and my wet body relaxed a bit. AND I can only have 2 accounts in Firefox, instead of the 4 accounts that I used to have in Firefox. What a shame. If I could figure out how to easily move folders and their contents to gmail I would, even though I much prefer Yahoo when it worked.
Horrible
by UghNowWhat on 2018/02/08 17:03
Should be ZERO stars, but not allowed. When you tap a link in an email it doesn’t open your web browser, it opens a yahoo browser. It’s a way for yahoo to not only track which sites you connect to (always did that), now their browser lets them see what you look at, what you buy, and your personal information. If I can’t find a way to disable their ‘fake’ browser soon will delete this app for sure. ****I KNOW that I can tap the compass icon to get to my web browser, but that’s an unnecessary step I shouldn’t have to take. If yahoo hadn’t added the extra step I wouldn’t need to complain. And please no more claiming that yahoo didn’t do it to track my online browsing!!!**** Also if you tap on an email to flag it, it often disappears, then you have to go to the flagged (now called starred) emails and hope it’s there. It also happens when you try to open an email to read it, sometimes it will disappear too. Then you have to go into another folder and come back and hope that the email has reappeared. And finally the yahoo email app frequently does not send a failure to deliver message when emails don’t go through, so I had no way of knowing how many people weren’t getting my email!!!
A Wonderful Support
by الكويتيه الهبله ١ on 2018/12/15 06:37
I have enjoyed Yahoo for many years and look forward with enthusiasm to many more. Several years ago, however, there was a horrible virus that blocked over 100 of my replies from perspective employers—several of which were very important university position offers. For a year, I had not heard back and assumed my applications were being rejected by the perspective employers. I would have wished that Yahoo would have had a mechanism to informing the senders that these replies had not been received by the recipient (me). The blocked messages were released to me all together a year later—excusing Yahoo from any role in the problem. The perspective employers paid no attention to me when I told them of what had happened since Yahoo didn't send an apology. I had no proof of this mishap. That breach prevented the perspective employers from offering future invitations to their university position. Few employment application catastrophes can happen. Ms. Rashid
My honest review
by Dasleeper on 2017/11/07 07:26
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...
Notifications fixed in latest update
by Cori C. on 2018/06/25 19:55
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.
Yet another improved version that is not an improvement
by KaolinKid on 2018/01/24 11:47
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.
Top email untouchable
by StaYou on 2017/10/20 19:20
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.
Not helping
by diamond3270 on 2019/07/12 10:02
I have made a police report on this person stealing my identity also my other accounts and I included Yahoo for allowing this hishonest lower class piece of trash use my identity. I work hard and will do whatever it takes to put this piece of trash is prison. I know the person pretending to be myself is reading this email so be prepared you low life piece of trash pay for your stupidity!! Everyone eventually gets caught!!! I must really be important for you to want to be me using my identity. The problem is there is only one Judeth so stop being a coward and show who you really are but I will soon see due to hiring a investigative team to find you and press charges so there is a paper trail you have provided for my team and Google, Yahoo and other uneducated companies are also part of allowing trash like yourself steal others identities due to making multiple complaints about my accounts getting hacked. Apple is the only company who responded and acknowledged my crisis and has helped anyway possible You will finally get to meet the original Judeth in court along with my security team due to Yahoo and Google allowing you to continuously putting myself in danger
New update makes it impossible to find anything
by thenorthernscar on 2019/11/15 13:25
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.
Glitch in contacts
by "Steve" from customer service on 2019/12/10 12:20
They actually reached out to me after my review (see below) and the app continues to create contacts for senders of spam emails... nothing has been done to resolve the problem. Original review... I called & talked to “Steve” in customer service about a problem with contacts in the non-Pro/free version of the Yahoo Mail app on my iPhone. The app was creating contacts without my knowledge (well over 1,000 contacts) and almost all of them were associated with spam emails I’d received both into the inbox and directly into the spam folder. “Steve” could not help me unless I gave him my credit card info so he could sign me up for the .99 per month pro version; you’d have to be an idiot to give these banana heads your credit card info when they can’t even protect your email contacts. I manually deleted every single contact (including about a hundred real contacts that I had before this happened), but one contact refuses to go away; I’ve deleted it a couple of dozen times and it always magically reappears... can’t get rid of it. I’ve deleted the app from my phone and reinstalled it several times, but the problem doesn’t go away.
Frustrating
by Soniaylenin on 2018/01/23 03:09
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!
What a waste
by Ujstme on 2017/11/05 10:17
What kind of idiot would create an app that when you click a link opens a separate page that is ONLY linked to mail instead of going to internet web page, god forbid you need to go back the email to get additional info. Time to start over. Yes you can still go to web page (clicking again) but when you go back to email you now have to say you’re done on that extra page. Now on to deleting multiple emails at once.... select more than the page you can see and the fun begins. First off the display to the right starts scrolling for every item you select and when you hit delete you are now some where towards the bottom of all your emails and not where you left off. Time to scroll back to the top... And god forbid you try to use the old tried and trusted outlook... your deleted emails suddenly re appear as if you never looked at them. If only I knew then what I know now. I would have gone a different way for sure..
Bucking the FLAT minimalist trend --- FINALLY
by webmonkeymon on 2019/03/20 03:17
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!
HORRIBLE email app
by Nygiant75 on 2019/10/21 22:45
I have never had problems with yahoo email until recently. Maybe 2 months ago it started. Have an iPhone Xr with iOS 13.1.3. App continuously crashes while viewing emails and even when typing one. Just shuts down and my phone goes back to the home screen. The OTHER BIG ISSUE? CANNOT dictate emails on yahoo app. Meaning, hit microphone button and speak what you want email to say. You do it and it turns off within 1.5 seconds. You get MAYBE 3 words out and the mic cuts off and the cursor goes to the front of the sentence. Is it a phone issue you ask? NO! Speaking text works on every other app or program on my phone without doing this. The workaround? Use the built in email app on the iPhone and link my yahoo account. Not good because NO OPTION TO PUSH NOTIFICATIONS. Have to manually check email about 20 times a day in order to get emails in a timely fashion. I’m am so mad about this. Been a yahoo email user since early 2000!!! NO WAY I’m the only one with this issue. Yahoo.....you aren’t aware of this? FIX IT PLEASE!!!! I’ve deleted and reinstalled app multiple times and it doesn’t fix it.
Useful but Mail Pro Useless
by J0ES on 2018/01/27 17:12
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.

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.
Why did you change the order of e-mails after deletion???
by Greg Da Man on 2018/02/11 18:39
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.
Best email app
by Letgo Kate on 2018/11/08 00:02
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”.
Don’t google - ever!
by How-Long Wang on 2019/09/05 21:18
Thank God that Bing, Yahoo, and Ask still provide us with search engine alternatives. Few things drive me up the wall than people saying/writing that they just “googled” something! No, what you mean is that you searched for something (or used the e-mail service) from a behemoth which has their paws in everything and which couldn’t care less about your personal privacy and/or other rights. If people don’t change their searching and email preferences away from Google (and soon) it will be too late. All that will remain is a leviathan which will continue to kowtow, and continue to supply your personal information, to the governments of the U.S., China, and Russia. They also will continue to provide your information to those companies which have their wallets open.
Great app
by Alberto G-mez on 2018/08/25 06:36
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!
Stop Asking me to Rate It
by Volleyshots on 2018/03/13 16:33
I was forced to switch to this app a few months months back when Yahoo decided not to play nice with Apple Mail. I switched after being asked for my Yahoo password literally twenty times a day. The app is functional and I have no real complaints about that, but having to extort your clients into using it is a pretty bad business model. Now I get asked to rate the app every single morning, so here ya go. Update: Since I posted this a few weeks back I've been asked to rate it at least once every two days. If you don't like your apps to bug you, don't use this app. Update: As if this app wasn't annoying enough, it now puts ads right in the middle of your email list, forcing you to have to click the "X" to get rid of it. Once you do that, it asks you a multiple choice question about why you wanted to get rid of it... Seriously guys, I want to get rid of it because it is an annoying ad that you put right in the middle of my emails. What other reason would there be...? For advertisers buying space here, just realize that I'll never click your ad EVER.
Yahoo
by Tomeh1 on 2019/03/09 13:57
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😡
Sabotaging Apple Mail!!
by LolaMadAboutThisCrap on 2018/01/26 23:10
I’ve had Yahoo mail for 14 years now. And I’ve been really happy using it on my Iphone with the provided email. Recently it stopped working and I just wasn’t receiving my Yahoo emails on my Iphone anymore, so I went to Apple, they deleted the Yahoo account from my phone, added it again, and the next day I’m having the same issues. I have the latest update and everything and I went back to Apple today asking if there’s just an issue with my Iphone 7Plus and if I need to get the new Iphone X or what to do because I’m missing out on important emails throughout the day and it’s affecting my business. They told me there’s nothing they can do, and that Yahoo has been making their email less compatible with the Apple mail so that people download their app instead! I was completely shocked!!! I’m so disappointed and I’m slowly gonna try and move to Gmail, even though everyone knows my Yahoo email only, but it it’s very disturbing and extremely disappointing that Yahoo is doing this and messing with the lives of their customers in this way! Shame!
Mediocre
by VenestaL on 2017/11/27 14:13
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.
One of the worst apps I have ever used
by Tintin 2011 on 2019/12/03 04:05
I have used Yahoo Mail for many years and generally speaking it was OK Until a few years ago when those multiple data breaches occurred and I lost complete confidence in yahoo in general. In the last few years I have had all kinds of issues with Yahoo mail and yahoo Finance and not just on one device but on any other devices that I use Yahoo. The problems have been random and all over the place and very frustrating to say the least. Today is when I finally had it, which forced me to type up this review because the dictation function on the iPhone doesn’t even work on the Yahoo app. As soon as I open my mouth and get a word or two out it stops. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app with no change. I can use dictation with any other apps on my iPhone with no such problems. This is by far one of the worst and buggiest apps in the App Store that I have ever used. I can’t imagine how anybody would give this app a five star, which leads me to believe that many of these reviews on the App Store must be fake somehow.
Lost my email and forgot my password
by robingail76 on 2018/04/22 02:21
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.
Horribly disappointed
by Skillyfoy on 2018/08/11 05:08
Why in the world does this app have ads? This is an email app, from one of the largest search engines in the world. You'd think they'd be able to give us at least one basic product without having advertisements! Way to go Google, Microsoft, and Apple, you win the email app game. Yahoo: get your stuff together. I'm disappointed. To be honest, I would give this negative stars because their competition is delivering basically the same product for free. As far as functionality, it's an email app. It sends and receives email just like it's supposed to. Sweet. But the experience is horrible because anytime I click on the first email in my list, an ad pops up and I click on that instead, on accident. That is so annoying. Sooooooooooo annoying. Developers, please take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself if you would even use this app yourself. The only reason I have it is because Yahoo doesn't seem to play well with Apple's native email app. So basically I'm being coerced into this poor experience. Booooooo. Not cool Yahoo, not cool.
So annoying and gets more glitches with each update
by BexAnders on 2018/02/15 04:38
I only downloaded this app because I was annoyed with the constant notifications from yahoo that using a third party email app wasn't secure. Unfortunately, I'm even more annoyed now. This app is so frustrating. From incorrect notifications of emails to the useless archive button I constantly hit and have to undo, I really hate using it. Oh, and for some idiotic reason, it sends reply emails from a different address than the one the email came in to. Update...for months it shows an email and once it's opened, the email disappears. I have to switch accounts and switch back to make it reappear. It freezes all the time and the stupid, slow loading ads at the top of the email list are always getting in the way of opening actual mail. Further, with the latest update, I no longer get images in emails. At all. Nor the option to load images that most other providers have. If I didn't have this account for 20 years, I'd get rid of yahoo entirely. If I could give 0 stars, I would.
Buggy for years
by CatShred on 2019/11/07 00:12
Been using this app for years and I’ve had the same problem for a couple now. I have 2 yahoo accounts with account key enabled. For some reason, each account shows up TWICE on the menu—once indicating account key is enabled, the other without—for both accounts. It’s a total hassle to remove. Last time I had to disable account key for each account, sign out, and enable it again, so right now I’m just leaving it as is. The problem is that I get notified TWICE when an email comes in. In addition, though one account shows up twice, the other account will not updated when emails are read, deleted, etc. In other words, even if I open an email or delete it, it will still show up in the “other” account as unread. Sometimes, it will fix itself after waiting a while, sometimes it won’t. Again, I’ve had this problem for so long that I don’t remember ever using this app without that issue. Can’t believe it still hasn’t been fixed.
Help me see people emails among the tsunami of sales emails!
by Debi1226 on 2018/11/29 11:53
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?)
Almost Number 1
by Taichou03 on 2019/10/12 02:53
This app was almost my go to... ALMOST. I was using Outlook for iOS and the only thing that kept my eye’s wondering was the lack of dark mode. But... they got a proper dark mode. Then I check out the “updated” yahoo mail app and it is great! It’s faster and looks better. The moment I go to delete outlook I find out that you can’t add an “other” email account. Whoops. Guess I’ll be sticking with outlook. Oh... and the “themes” don’t carry over to the actual message. Bummer. UPDATE: I’m dropping it to three stars because things keep coming up that SHOUKD be in the app but aren’t. Like... a combined inbox instead of having to manually switch between inboxes should be obvious. If you’re in one inbox and get an email for another, you don’t even get that notification! I have an iCloud account that I can’t use in yahoo so it’s either use a different app or use two. Way to go. I can’t upload a document I have saved in cloud storage!!!!!!
Could be better...
by SewSweet on 2018/03/15 15:21
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!
Spam spam spam SPAM SPAM SPAM!!!!!!
by GoneFishin446 on 2019/05/30 19:21
Inferior service from an inferior company. AT& T is in the same sinking boat because they chose to partner with Yahoo without any consent from account holders. There has been much discussion reference the need for Government oversight into predominant social media companies, but I believe the attention needs to be refocused on antitrust laws applicable to GLOBAL CONGLOMERATIONS such as AT& T, who seem to be on a fast track to acquiring every service available leaving few remaining competitor options for the general public. Sounds disturbingly like they are on their way to becoming a “monopoly” after acquiring Direct TV and various other companies. Have you tried to wade through their miserable customer service or tech support lately? Very little risk of having to improve their service when there are fewer & fewer available competitors & in some U.S. demographics/geographical locations there are no other options. We are headed down a very SLIPPERY slope if the ‘Amazons’ and ‘AT&Ts’ are allowed to purchase, own and control every consumer market. Just saying!!
Not impressed
by Scotty22873 on 2018/11/09 16:56
I’ve had yahoo email addresses for years and have always been pleased with it reliability. I have always used the standard iOS mail on my iPhone and had both personal and business yahoo addresses linked and everything worked very well for many years. Then yahoo took away the ability to push my emails to me on the iOS email server. So I downloaded this app. I now sometimes don’t even get email notifications at all, and I have my desktop, iOS mail, and this app. I’ve contacted Apple and everything is fine on their end, there is something going on with yahoo. And good luck getting a hold of anyone for support. They just direct you to their community forums, which is garbage. If you are looking to sign up with a new email address, use gmail and it’s app. If you are stuck with a yahoo account, I hope your experience is better than mine. Also, when I get a notification, it’s the same sound as a text message. How hard is it to give us an option to change a notification sounds?!
Good but could be improved.
by JRLB12457 on 2019/08/02 19:21
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?
by Skthink on 2017/10/06 19:36
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.
Missing emails
by Lefty21955 on 2019/10/01 04:36
The app updates seem to have wrecked havoc with the delivery of mail. The worst part is that there is no support, unless you are willing to spend $4.99/month. And, if you bite that bullet, you will be dealing with an offshore customer call center. Enough said! After calling that number, but not opting to join, I was told the only support for non-premium members, is to read the useless online articles. I had already tried that with no success. Next, I decided to log in to my account online, rather than use the app. There, I discovered that, between 9/25 and 9/30, there were 336 emails viewable there, which were missing on the app feed (absolutely the same account!). At that point, I decided to delete the app. I’m not sure what made me think of this, but I then reloaded the app. Guess what! All of those missing emails, along with the ones missing after an earlier update, are now visible in the app version. If Yahoo is going to update its app, they should advise users about potential problems and how to fix them. At the very least, there should be a way to contact someone on the phone or in a chat window on its so-called “help” website. I have been very disappointed with this app ever since it removed a way to sort emails. It is impossible to keep up with and delete inordinate amounts of emails just using a search tool. My guess is that yahoo servers are housing millions, if not more, ancient, useless emails, because of this.
No batch delete option is the killer flaw
by Lavaca Kid on 2018/02/16 17:59
I’ve used several email programs over the years. Except for one major time-consuming, labor-intensive nightmare of a flaw, I would rank Yahoo! 5 stars. As it is, it’s a stretch to rate it at 3. I want to use Yahoo! as my go-to account. But I have to stick with Outlook until Yahoo! makes it possible to select all, scroll through email inboxes, select unwanted messages and then delete the marked messages. As it is, the process is essentially backwards. With a few thousand messages accumulated it takes countless hours to batch mark all messages and then, one at a time, choose the emails I wish to KEEP, and delete the remainder. Outlook, for this reason alone, is far easier to manage. The day Yahoo! makes it as simple as Outlook to mark and batch delete select messages, 3 Stars go up to 5 and I buy in 100%. Sure hope this can, and ultimately will, be done.
Terrible
by JayJay28282 on 2018/11/19 16:50
Update: The original complaints have stopped, but I still don’t like it. I get the same spam over and over again...Squarespace is about to delete my nonexistent account and I have to update my credit information. I send every email to Spam and I’ve been doing it for at least a year. Does Spam mean anything? Is there no way for Yahoo to stop our spam? Also, if I send an email to 3 people and one responds, I read it and delete it. Another responds and both of the responses show up. I deleted the first one; why is it there? I delete them both, and the 3rd person responds, so all 3 responses show up. I end up with a whole line of emails when all I want to do is see the most recent. Why doesn’t “delete” mean “delete?” Original: Whenever I get an email with something to open, I just get a blank screen. For instance, I tried to add another email address, but had to change the password for that address. When I got the change the password email and clicked on it, I couldn't do it because I got a white screen with Only the time on top. Same happens if I get an attachment, coupon, etc. All I can do with this app is open word emails. One plus is I don't get the "Rate it" popup I was constantly getting before, in which I rated it many times and nothing was improved.
Finally used this, as bad as expected
by Kelinci on 2017/12/19 18:30
So after getting multiple spam messages from yahoo mail telling me to use this app instead of iMail, one of my mailboxes mysteriously stopped syncing with iMail (gee I wonder why) and I found I had no other choice. Decided to try it, how bad could it be? They somehow made this app worse than any expectation I could have had. One of my inboxes had “no mail” in it despite the fact that I know it does. While trying to clean up the other inbox I kept accidentally swiping the advertisement on the top. Rather than just ignoring what is obviously a mis-swipe to get rid of spam, Yahoo thinks it’s a good idea to pop up an even more obnoxious multiple choice survey about why you would try to get rid of the advertisement. This app also somehow hung up and crashed twice in my 5 minute attempt to use it (Yes I’m running the most up to date iOS). I will switch to a different email provider before continuing to use this trainwreck. Find another way to monetize your service Yahoo.

Zero Stars
by birdofwood on 2019/12/12 22:18
This app has the annoying quality of catching every single garbage email you get and adding it to your contact book without your permission. It is impossible to removed/delete these spamming emails from the contact book Have read others complaining about the same....yet the developer wants us to email them about what’s has been discussed here over and over again....they keep on adding every ad email address and every spamming email to your personal contact list....
Deleted emails reappear in inbox
by JoniAsh_2016 on 2019/12/12 17:50
I could not figure out why I always had over 100 emails a day. I deleted every email from a past date and logged back in later and they were all back in my inbox. I do not like this app bc my inbox never clears!

Voice dictation doesn’t work with iOS 13
by Waiting4better on 2019/12/12 11:18
Apple says it’s Yahoo!s problem but there isn’t any Yahoo! Email customer support. After only 1-2 seconds voice dictation shuts off and cursor goes back to the beginning. Works fine for all other apps. Still not fixed after the 11/21/19 update nor the 12/7/19 update. Still not fixed after 12/11/19 update.

SPAM MAIL HEADACHE
by LIFEOFLOIS on 2019/12/11 23:56
I am sooooooooo tired of all the advertising spam mail, sexual harassing titles emails, and yahoo automatically signing me up for subscriptions I know nothing about👎. Please stop selling our information...it’s a matter of time before the entire net crashes and we will have to revert back to being humans again and Actually talking-visiting one another...at times technology SUCKS👀
Great app, but some things need fixed
by audramarie18 on 2019/12/11 23:30
I love using the app for my mail! But things lately with the app are frustrating me and need fixed. I no longer get notifications when I get emails and I don’t see any badges on the app to let me know there’s new mail. I just checked today and had over 400 emails since I did not realize I had new mail cause I did not have any badges or notifications and yes I do have those settings on. Second thing, my profile picture is a picture of what I used to have on my account MANY years ago when I first got Yahoo mail when I was a teen. I cannot change the picture no matter how many times I change it, the same old one remains and I do not want it on my profile anymore. Please come up with fixes for these! Otherwise I love the app!

My recent yahoo mail experience
by bojidenny on 2019/12/11 18:11
I have had yahoo mail for years without a hiccup but shortly after I got a new iPhone 11 I no longer received updates on my iPad. Then a couple days later I no longer received new mail on the iPhone. I’m still able to see mail on my pc. I have taken the I pad and iPhone back to the Verizon store but to no avail. I have tried changing passwords but to no avail. Grrrrr!

Best Email
by Surage on 2019/12/11 08:00
1. Fast and Furious compared to other email services 2. Easy to delete from my lap top I selected easily about 900 emails in a short time and deleted about 20,000 in a very short time. While my gmail has 2044301 not a joke it is true and was blocked I was not able to send or receive emails. To delete is a pain in neck their staff also helped me to delete but unable to select not more than a 20 at a time. I purchased 100 gb for a month for $2 so because of having huge storage not worried about slow deleting process still I wish Google must help me in deleting process of emails.
Awful experience
by fshah28 on 2019/12/11 03:36

Re: update
by Maggie375 on 2019/12/11 00:41
I don’t like the update of how to place messages in folders. I prefer that once I put the email in a folder it remembers that folder for the next time. I also prefer it all at my fingertips not having to go through the forward tab then find the folders. Please. Hangs back.
Glitchy
by MnMMcCarty on 2019/12/10 22:02
Emails don’t come in or update frequently enough, even when I refresh the page. A lot of emails I open go blank within seconds, so I can’t read them. I don’t have any of these problems when I go to my yahoo mail on my web browser.

Glitch in contacts
by "Steve" from customer service on 2019/12/10 12:20
They actually reached out to me after my review (see below) and the app continues to create contacts for senders of spam emails... nothing has been done to resolve the problem. Original review... I called & talked to “Steve” in customer service about a problem with contacts in the non-Pro/free version of the Yahoo Mail app on my iPhone. The app was creating contacts without my knowledge (well over 1,000 contacts) and almost all of them were associated with spam emails I’d received both into the inbox and directly into the spam folder. “Steve” could not help me unless I gave him my credit card info so he could sign me up for the .99 per month pro version; you’d have to be an idiot to give these banana heads your credit card info when they can’t even protect your email contacts. I manually deleted every single contact (including about a hundred real contacts that I had before this happened), but one contact refuses to go away; I’ve deleted it a couple of dozen times and it always magically reappears... can’t get rid of it. I’ve deleted the app from my phone and reinstalled it several times, but the problem doesn’t go away.

Sent email no working
by paulak0389 on 2019/12/10 00:45
I’ve used this app for a while and loved it. The last week or so I’ve been trying to send emails and all my emails go to the drafts folder and never send no matter how many times I try. I’ve deleted my app, redownloaded. I even reached out for help on their site and keep getting redirected to pay for someone to help me fix what should be a simple problem. I don’t want to delete this app but I may have to.
Unread messages and other tabs are missing

When I click on unread messages on my iPad and iPhone, if I click on a message and return to my unread messages it brings me back to the top messages even if I read the 200th message now. It was fine until last week when both my iPhones and iPads started found this. 4 devices same thing happening. The tabs on iPad In the bottom left are all missing now (to select unread messages and etc. (iPad 7 & Air 2)

Company LAX on PRIVACY & SECURITY, cannot be trusted with personal information.
by GTD Meister on 2019/12/09 13:15
App does the basics, some accounts hard to delete. After 18 years on Yahoo Mail, I had to move my important email to another platform due to several data hacks at Yahoo and their reprehensible, less-than-forthcoming response to data breaches. Yahoo ain’t what it once was, a pale shell of a once-great company. RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER’S RESPONSE: Yahoo, you spouting the company line and are not being truthful. Yahoo had security breaches in 2013 and 2014 and publicly acknowledged NEITHER until LATE 2016 ... and even then, only in trickles. In the meantime, private user information was available for sale on the web. The breaches were outed by other parties LONG BEFORE Yahoo did so in late 2016.

New Yahoo Mail format for iPhones
by Sadie's furmom on 2019/12/09 09:52
I miss the old format!!! I took my yahoo off my phone to re-install because I tried to save an e-mail as a draft that I had been composing and lost it. It did not go into drafts nor was it in junk or deleted messages. When I re-installed Yahoo Mail onto my iphone6, Plus, the new version loaded. It is not nearly as user friendly. I liked having all my 'folders' in sight when opening my mail. Now, I have to waste time and go to the icon on the bottom left to open my folders. Also, the OLD (and much missed) version of Yahoo Mail that I had on my iphone6, plus, when I wanted to add an e-Mail to a folder, the folder would automatically come up when I tapped 'move' - now I have to waste MORE time, going into my folders and cursoring down to the folder I want to move that e-Mail into. Wish I had never deleted the original version to re-install. I certainly won't on my iPad!!!!! And eventually, WILL change to another program for my e-mails. Too bad, I have been with Yahoo Mail for such a long time.
Software freezes for no reason
by omegatalon on 2019/12/09 08:44
The software freezes for no apparent reason, it’s times like this that I really would like to revert to the prior copy of software. Totally impractical for a business app. Test your software more thoroughly.

Never Loads
by Hekvhjvghhcghjn on 2019/12/09 03:44
I spent way too much time trying to get this app to log in to my google account, but every time I log in it loads forever and never actually does anything. Makes the app worthless if you cannot log in.
“Taking longer than usual to load”
by Kayc69274927581957 on 2019/12/08 22:56
I added another yahoo mail inbox to my account and now it won’t load. I get the same error message “it’s taking longer than usual to load your inbox- please close and reopen the app” I’ve done that multiple times, done the software update and nothing works. Absolutely infuriating.

The worst experience in e-mail. Period.
by TinkerGuy84 on 2019/12/08 17:39
I have an iPhone XR 256GB unlocked. No bloatware (bought at Apple store). App crashes after one or two sentences on EVERY SINGLE EMAIL I WRITE. The entire app crashes and i have to force quit. When I reopen the app, and try to begin typing in the draft again, it crashes after a few keystrokes AGAIN. If i had some garbage five year old android device with a ton of bloatware, i would half expect this. But i run CAD viewer apps on my phone and gmail has literally never crashed. Not one time ever. AVOID AT AL COSTS.

Notifications inconsistent
by Abigail Marie W on 2019/12/08 02:53
I enjoy the app except for when out of nowhere, on multiple occasions, my notifications just stop working. I missed 120 emails and one of them was an urgent one which caused a purchase of mine to be cancelled. I was luckily able to discuss with the distributor the situation but I fear what would happen in a more serious situation. This has happened before and each time I make sure that my notifications are turned on, which they are. I’m not sure why this is happening but if it’s something for developers to look into.
Get rid of the app web browser
by DoogieLeFou on 2019/12/08 02:41
Hey Yahoo I already have Safari, so quit trying to keep me in the yahoo mail app because I rarely stay there when I click on a link. You are just creating extra steps. And in the case of my one time free Audible credit link it was used up in your browser and worthless once I switched to Safari. Really ready to delete my account.
Terrible
by Judi Nmi on 2019/12/08 00:50
I used yahoo mail for many years, but recently it got hacked. All my outgoing emails indicated that they were from jackie welch which is not my name. Important emails were disregarded by doctors health professionals and friends were disregarded. I could not find a way to contact yahoo. I did eventually find a way to contact them and received an e mail with instructions which were difficult for a non techy person to follow. I finally changed my email mail to a gmail account. No customer support. Neverbagain

At one point, you could use voice to text when composing emails, but suddenly after an update, it no longer works! Why would you take that away from users??

Account key
by thecireyman2729 on 2019/12/06 01:34
I have had a problem accessing my account, the account key was turned on and when ever I trying Ed to access the account it will not sent the key code. I talked to a representative and she said I have to pay 9.99 $ a month for only a quick fix. I find this very annoying and all I want is a quick fix not a monthly subscription. This has been a very bad experience and I would not recommend yahoo it is ridiculous to have to pay 9.99$ a month to send an account key code for a one time use. Use gmail, account help and customer service is free not a monthly subscription.

Mostly Good
by Sharilee21 on 2019/12/04 23:50
I use Yahoo Mail for multiple emails and it works pretty well. I have had a hard time signing in or adding an email in the past. A couple of potions that would make using easier . . . An easier way to delete large numbers of emails at one time, the ability to create “message rules” and more varieties for themes and backgrounds for each email address. But overall, extremely helpful!
App is hit or miss
by Jcdit on 2019/12/04 23:36
Since the former app (which worked very very well) has been disabled I am now forced to use this substandard app. Many of the functions that made yahoo email a joy to use are not available in this version. I know they do not allow groups which is a real bummer but with the old app there were work arounds. In the past emails were easy to move from one email account to another; now forget about it. After installing this app my email shows my 3 email accounts as well as duplicates of the same 3 accounts all of which are non-operational. Yahoo help was not very helpful either. If they can’t fix it after a few poke and hope standard responses they ignore additional information or questions. All I can say is it’s poorly designed and not very well thought out.

I love this app and have been using it for a while now.

Something’s changed
by MizzyMcKay on 2019/12/04 19:44
Normally I had no issue with this app but after the last update, I’ve noticed that I can’t open new emails or even refresh my mailbox when using data. The app works just fine on every WiFi hotspot I’ve tested it on but with the data, even when the signal’s strength is great, it just does not work. (I have a feeling it’s the app and not the data, since the data will let me do basically everything else that requires internet on my phone, except check my mail.)

App not syncing over cellular service
by Tigerjen99 on 2019/12/04 18:39
I’ve been using this app for years on my iPhone and iPad. Just this week I am no longer able to sync it over cellular service. Over WiFi it works great! I’m not sure what changed. Since the problem started I went ahead and updated the app but that didn’t help the problem. I also upgraded to iOS 13.2.3 on my iPad just in case but that didn’t fix the problem. I am able to sync my yahoo mail over cellular with the native mail app just not with yahoo mail app. Is there a fix for this?

Been using this app for a couple of years now. Never had problem until now. I did the latest update on 12/4/19 and it has slowed the app down tremendously. It takes forever for the app to come up or show any of my mail. Haven’t been able to check anything since the update.
Used to be great

I get notifications of emails, but they are not in the inbox. They might show up a couple days later. This was after the latest update. Any way to revert to old version?
App not working
by JoePatti on 2019/12/04 16:51
For the last 2 days the app has not been working! It only works if I’m using internet! Not even with LTE or GE on does not work! All my other apps works fine but for some reason the Yahoo app doesn’t work! I can’t read my emails if I’m not online what’s going on?? Thank you.
Unable to load email
by Jinxblix on 2019/12/04 16:31
The app just stopped working. Every time I open the app to read my mail it never loads but I can see a notification that I have over 70 mail notifications. Don’t waste your time
Replaces iPhone email app
by Snowconesarecold on 2019/11/19 03:41
:::Another Update::: I’ve used this app instead of the native apple app for a few years now. It’s great and I really using it. Recently it’s had some issues where tapping a new email doesn’t open the email. There’s no amount of time you can tap to make it open. I’m writing this in hopes the developers will see it and respond. Using the App Support portion of the App Store doesn’t work. It just takes to the black hole that is yahoo support. There’s no way to get help there. Please help! Thanks!!! ::Updated with 5 stars:: I wrote a review and the developers responded. They respond to everyone’s review, that is a team that understands how to produce a product and give people what they want. You guys are great! Original review: I’ve replaced the native iPhone email app when that thing quit working correctly. This Yahoo app works better than expected. I manage yahoo and gmail addresses and all the features I need are there, except 1. That is being able to change the tone made when an email arrives. I’d give it 5 stars if that were possible. If there’s a way to change it, it needs to be easier to find. So, great app overall, I use it daily with no issues.
After AOL, yahoo.
by NotedSinger on 2018/01/28 14:27
As my title intimates, my mail requirements suddenly changed and I was searching. Several products appeared promising with a apparent good fit,but I was paranoid. I decided Yahoo was my choice primarily for the organization parameters like my own filing system. It wasn’t perfect, yet we both seem to have grown-up a bit together. I trust Yahoo is not offended by such a comment and I, certainly, have not been. I feel your App of Yahoo has become like a brother or some animus energy with which I have a relationship. WhenI turn on my mobile phone, iPad or laptop, it is Yahoo with which/whom I communicate. New growth spurts are a bit difficult, but I figure at my young age of ~71 yrs. that is normal. Please, continue your most excellent Good work. I use your App because it is familiar. All of the branches from the tree trunk are exciting and new. However, the may be grafts with new issues, new DNA with wonderful possibilities. Do not forget whose roots are in the ground. So, “PS. I love your tree.” Best wishes.
No Setting For Notification Sounds
by Daman M on 2018/06/30 15:22
Deleted app finally. I linked yahoo mail through gmail. I highly recommend. More flaws to report with yahoo app. I am using an iPhone X. Mail would disappear from the inbox if I clicked on a new mail notification. Would take hours to appear back. If I used the search to find an old email it would find the email and when I click on it the email it would just load and load an nothing would appear. I finally had to forward the email to gmail so I could view it. Also why should one have to pay to remove annoying ads which aren’t even applicable to what I am interested in. Worst app ever. Minus one star for not being able to change sounds for incoming & outgoing mail. If you have an iPhone you are stuck with the generic default notification and can’t change it at all in the settings of the app or in the settings for the iPhone. Second minus star that they show irrelevant ads in the top of the inbox. I don’t want to pay a dollar a month to get rid of it. If you want people to use your app rather than the default mail setting in the iPhone then get rid of that like gmail and outlook have in their free versions. Update to the developer’s reply. That is untrue. Both the Outlook and Google mail apps. let you change sound notifications within the “settings” of the widget themselves and not in the actual Apple settings.
I have Yahoo! basic were I don’t pay anything for it
by MABasenjis on 2019/07/09 13:42
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
Doesn't Allow Scrolling
by jetnova16 on 2019/03/06 19:34
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!!
by GOVS Fan on 2019/05/04 14:04
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."
It gets email!
by Tmprmntl13 on 2018/02/17 04:54
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.
Great except for the “Deals in this Email” that dramatically slow you down
by jsmithdmi on 2019/11/23 14:01
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.
You know about spam reaching inbox for months
by hjohnnym on 2018/05/22 06:44
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.
Not so good anymore
by upsetandforgotten on 2018/10/24 00:30
I started using Yahoo email in 2004 and liked it enough to stick with it even in the advent of gmail, hotmail, etc. But I made a major mistake: I linked some accounts. It was great for a while, with the aliases available to one click to another of my several accounts, each with their own folders. But now I can’t unlink the accounts or be rid of the useless aliases, all the accounts have similar folders AND for some reason 2 accounts must have the same password. I spent $10 and 5 hours on the phone with “help”, working with 4 different people and accomplished nothing. Now I moved 2 of the accounts to gmail. $10 would have been a bargain for the amount of time spent with me if they could help, but they could not. At times I broke out in a sweat as it seemed as if folders and then even accounts with folders of important files from years ago disappeared, but then they magically appeared again later and my wet body relaxed a bit. AND I can only have 2 accounts in Firefox, instead of the 4 accounts that I used to have in Firefox. What a shame. If I could figure out how to easily move folders and their contents to gmail I would, even though I much prefer Yahoo when it worked.
Horrible
by UghNowWhat on 2018/02/08 17:03
Should be ZERO stars, but not allowed. When you tap a link in an email it doesn’t open your web browser, it opens a yahoo browser. It’s a way for yahoo to not only track which sites you connect to (always did that), now their browser lets them see what you look at, what you buy, and your personal information. If I can’t find a way to disable their ‘fake’ browser soon will delete this app for sure. ****I KNOW that I can tap the compass icon to get to my web browser, but that’s an unnecessary step I shouldn’t have to take. If yahoo hadn’t added the extra step I wouldn’t need to complain. And please no more claiming that yahoo didn’t do it to track my online browsing!!!**** Also if you tap on an email to flag it, it often disappears, then you have to go to the flagged (now called starred) emails and hope it’s there. It also happens when you try to open an email to read it, sometimes it will disappear too. Then you have to go into another folder and come back and hope that the email has reappeared. And finally the yahoo email app frequently does not send a failure to deliver message when emails don’t go through, so I had no way of knowing how many people weren’t getting my email!!!
A Wonderful Support
by الكويتيه الهبله ١ on 2018/12/15 06:37
I have enjoyed Yahoo for many years and look forward with enthusiasm to many more. Several years ago, however, there was a horrible virus that blocked over 100 of my replies from perspective employers—several of which were very important university position offers. For a year, I had not heard back and assumed my applications were being rejected by the perspective employers. I would have wished that Yahoo would have had a mechanism to informing the senders that these replies had not been received by the recipient (me). The blocked messages were released to me all together a year later—excusing Yahoo from any role in the problem. The perspective employers paid no attention to me when I told them of what had happened since Yahoo didn't send an apology. I had no proof of this mishap. That breach prevented the perspective employers from offering future invitations to their university position. Few employment application catastrophes can happen. Ms. Rashid
My honest review
by Dasleeper on 2017/11/07 07:26
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...
Notifications fixed in latest update
by Cori C. on 2018/06/25 19:55
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.
Yet another improved version that is not an improvement
by KaolinKid on 2018/01/24 11:47
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.
Top email untouchable
by StaYou on 2017/10/20 19:20
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.
Not helping
by diamond3270 on 2019/07/12 10:02
I have made a police report on this person stealing my identity also my other accounts and I included Yahoo for allowing this hishonest lower class piece of trash use my identity. I work hard and will do whatever it takes to put this piece of trash is prison. I know the person pretending to be myself is reading this email so be prepared you low life piece of trash pay for your stupidity!! Everyone eventually gets caught!!! I must really be important for you to want to be me using my identity. The problem is there is only one Judeth so stop being a coward and show who you really are but I will soon see due to hiring a investigative team to find you and press charges so there is a paper trail you have provided for my team and Google, Yahoo and other uneducated companies are also part of allowing trash like yourself steal others identities due to making multiple complaints about my accounts getting hacked. Apple is the only company who responded and acknowledged my crisis and has helped anyway possible You will finally get to meet the original Judeth in court along with my security team due to Yahoo and Google allowing you to continuously putting myself in danger
New update makes it impossible to find anything
by thenorthernscar on 2019/11/15 13:25
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.
Glitch in contacts
by "Steve" from customer service on 2019/12/10 12:20
They actually reached out to me after my review (see below) and the app continues to create contacts for senders of spam emails... nothing has been done to resolve the problem. Original review... I called & talked to “Steve” in customer service about a problem with contacts in the non-Pro/free version of the Yahoo Mail app on my iPhone. The app was creating contacts without my knowledge (well over 1,000 contacts) and almost all of them were associated with spam emails I’d received both into the inbox and directly into the spam folder. “Steve” could not help me unless I gave him my credit card info so he could sign me up for the .99 per month pro version; you’d have to be an idiot to give these banana heads your credit card info when they can’t even protect your email contacts. I manually deleted every single contact (including about a hundred real contacts that I had before this happened), but one contact refuses to go away; I’ve deleted it a couple of dozen times and it always magically reappears... can’t get rid of it. I’ve deleted the app from my phone and reinstalled it several times, but the problem doesn’t go away.
Frustrating
by Soniaylenin on 2018/01/23 03:09
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!
What a waste
by Ujstme on 2017/11/05 10:17
What kind of idiot would create an app that when you click a link opens a separate page that is ONLY linked to mail instead of going to internet web page, god forbid you need to go back the email to get additional info. Time to start over. Yes you can still go to web page (clicking again) but when you go back to email you now have to say you’re done on that extra page. Now on to deleting multiple emails at once.... select more than the page you can see and the fun begins. First off the display to the right starts scrolling for every item you select and when you hit delete you are now some where towards the bottom of all your emails and not where you left off. Time to scroll back to the top... And god forbid you try to use the old tried and trusted outlook... your deleted emails suddenly re appear as if you never looked at them. If only I knew then what I know now. I would have gone a different way for sure..
Bucking the FLAT minimalist trend --- FINALLY
by webmonkeymon on 2019/03/20 03:17
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!
HORRIBLE email app
by Nygiant75 on 2019/10/21 22:45
I have never had problems with yahoo email until recently. Maybe 2 months ago it started. Have an iPhone Xr with iOS 13.1.3. App continuously crashes while viewing emails and even when typing one. Just shuts down and my phone goes back to the home screen. The OTHER BIG ISSUE? CANNOT dictate emails on yahoo app. Meaning, hit microphone button and speak what you want email to say. You do it and it turns off within 1.5 seconds. You get MAYBE 3 words out and the mic cuts off and the cursor goes to the front of the sentence. Is it a phone issue you ask? NO! Speaking text works on every other app or program on my phone without doing this. The workaround? Use the built in email app on the iPhone and link my yahoo account. Not good because NO OPTION TO PUSH NOTIFICATIONS. Have to manually check email about 20 times a day in order to get emails in a timely fashion. I’m am so mad about this. Been a yahoo email user since early 2000!!! NO WAY I’m the only one with this issue. Yahoo.....you aren’t aware of this? FIX IT PLEASE!!!! I’ve deleted and reinstalled app multiple times and it doesn’t fix it.
Useful but Mail Pro Useless
by J0ES on 2018/01/27 17:12
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.
Paid to subscribe to Pro... only one mobile device- fixed.
by supergrl13! on 2017/12/06 02:20
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.
Why did you change the order of e-mails after deletion???
by Greg Da Man on 2018/02/11 18:39
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.
Best email app
by Letgo Kate on 2018/11/08 00:02
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”.
Don’t google - ever!
by How-Long Wang on 2019/09/05 21:18
Thank God that Bing, Yahoo, and Ask still provide us with search engine alternatives. Few things drive me up the wall than people saying/writing that they just “googled” something! No, what you mean is that you searched for something (or used the e-mail service) from a behemoth which has their paws in everything and which couldn’t care less about your personal privacy and/or other rights. If people don’t change their searching and email preferences away from Google (and soon) it will be too late. All that will remain is a leviathan which will continue to kowtow, and continue to supply your personal information, to the governments of the U.S., China, and Russia. They also will continue to provide your information to those companies which have their wallets open.
Great app
by Alberto G-mez on 2018/08/25 06:36
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!
Stop Asking me to Rate It
by Volleyshots on 2018/03/13 16:33
I was forced to switch to this app a few months months back when Yahoo decided not to play nice with Apple Mail. I switched after being asked for my Yahoo password literally twenty times a day. The app is functional and I have no real complaints about that, but having to extort your clients into using it is a pretty bad business model. Now I get asked to rate the app every single morning, so here ya go. Update: Since I posted this a few weeks back I've been asked to rate it at least once every two days. If you don't like your apps to bug you, don't use this app. Update: As if this app wasn't annoying enough, it now puts ads right in the middle of your email list, forcing you to have to click the "X" to get rid of it. Once you do that, it asks you a multiple choice question about why you wanted to get rid of it... Seriously guys, I want to get rid of it because it is an annoying ad that you put right in the middle of my emails. What other reason would there be...? For advertisers buying space here, just realize that I'll never click your ad EVER.
Yahoo
by Tomeh1 on 2019/03/09 13:57
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😡
Sabotaging Apple Mail!!
by LolaMadAboutThisCrap on 2018/01/26 23:10
I’ve had Yahoo mail for 14 years now. And I’ve been really happy using it on my Iphone with the provided email. Recently it stopped working and I just wasn’t receiving my Yahoo emails on my Iphone anymore, so I went to Apple, they deleted the Yahoo account from my phone, added it again, and the next day I’m having the same issues. I have the latest update and everything and I went back to Apple today asking if there’s just an issue with my Iphone 7Plus and if I need to get the new Iphone X or what to do because I’m missing out on important emails throughout the day and it’s affecting my business. They told me there’s nothing they can do, and that Yahoo has been making their email less compatible with the Apple mail so that people download their app instead! I was completely shocked!!! I’m so disappointed and I’m slowly gonna try and move to Gmail, even though everyone knows my Yahoo email only, but it it’s very disturbing and extremely disappointing that Yahoo is doing this and messing with the lives of their customers in this way! Shame!
Mediocre
by VenestaL on 2017/11/27 14:13
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.
One of the worst apps I have ever used
by Tintin 2011 on 2019/12/03 04:05
I have used Yahoo Mail for many years and generally speaking it was OK Until a few years ago when those multiple data breaches occurred and I lost complete confidence in yahoo in general. In the last few years I have had all kinds of issues with Yahoo mail and yahoo Finance and not just on one device but on any other devices that I use Yahoo. The problems have been random and all over the place and very frustrating to say the least. Today is when I finally had it, which forced me to type up this review because the dictation function on the iPhone doesn’t even work on the Yahoo app. As soon as I open my mouth and get a word or two out it stops. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app with no change. I can use dictation with any other apps on my iPhone with no such problems. This is by far one of the worst and buggiest apps in the App Store that I have ever used. I can’t imagine how anybody would give this app a five star, which leads me to believe that many of these reviews on the App Store must be fake somehow.
Lost my email and forgot my password
by robingail76 on 2018/04/22 02:21
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.
Horribly disappointed
by Skillyfoy on 2018/08/11 05:08
Why in the world does this app have ads? This is an email app, from one of the largest search engines in the world. You'd think they'd be able to give us at least one basic product without having advertisements! Way to go Google, Microsoft, and Apple, you win the email app game. Yahoo: get your stuff together. I'm disappointed. To be honest, I would give this negative stars because their competition is delivering basically the same product for free. As far as functionality, it's an email app. It sends and receives email just like it's supposed to. Sweet. But the experience is horrible because anytime I click on the first email in my list, an ad pops up and I click on that instead, on accident. That is so annoying. Sooooooooooo annoying. Developers, please take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself if you would even use this app yourself. The only reason I have it is because Yahoo doesn't seem to play well with Apple's native email app. So basically I'm being coerced into this poor experience. Booooooo. Not cool Yahoo, not cool.
So annoying and gets more glitches with each update
by BexAnders on 2018/02/15 04:38
I only downloaded this app because I was annoyed with the constant notifications from yahoo that using a third party email app wasn't secure. Unfortunately, I'm even more annoyed now. This app is so frustrating. From incorrect notifications of emails to the useless archive button I constantly hit and have to undo, I really hate using it. Oh, and for some idiotic reason, it sends reply emails from a different address than the one the email came in to. Update...for months it shows an email and once it's opened, the email disappears. I have to switch accounts and switch back to make it reappear. It freezes all the time and the stupid, slow loading ads at the top of the email list are always getting in the way of opening actual mail. Further, with the latest update, I no longer get images in emails. At all. Nor the option to load images that most other providers have. If I didn't have this account for 20 years, I'd get rid of yahoo entirely. If I could give 0 stars, I would.
Buggy for years
by CatShred on 2019/11/07 00:12
Been using this app for years and I’ve had the same problem for a couple now. I have 2 yahoo accounts with account key enabled. For some reason, each account shows up TWICE on the menu—once indicating account key is enabled, the other without—for both accounts. It’s a total hassle to remove. Last time I had to disable account key for each account, sign out, and enable it again, so right now I’m just leaving it as is. The problem is that I get notified TWICE when an email comes in. In addition, though one account shows up twice, the other account will not updated when emails are read, deleted, etc. In other words, even if I open an email or delete it, it will still show up in the “other” account as unread. Sometimes, it will fix itself after waiting a while, sometimes it won’t. Again, I’ve had this problem for so long that I don’t remember ever using this app without that issue. Can’t believe it still hasn’t been fixed.
Help me see people emails among the tsunami of sales emails!
by Debi1226 on 2018/11/29 11:53
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?)
Almost Number 1
by Taichou03 on 2019/10/12 02:53
This app was almost my go to... ALMOST. I was using Outlook for iOS and the only thing that kept my eye’s wondering was the lack of dark mode. But... they got a proper dark mode. Then I check out the “updated” yahoo mail app and it is great! It’s faster and looks better. The moment I go to delete outlook I find out that you can’t add an “other” email account. Whoops. Guess I’ll be sticking with outlook. Oh... and the “themes” don’t carry over to the actual message. Bummer. UPDATE: I’m dropping it to three stars because things keep coming up that SHOUKD be in the app but aren’t. Like... a combined inbox instead of having to manually switch between inboxes should be obvious. If you’re in one inbox and get an email for another, you don’t even get that notification! I have an iCloud account that I can’t use in yahoo so it’s either use a different app or use two. Way to go. I can’t upload a document I have saved in cloud storage!!!!!!
Could be better...
by SewSweet on 2018/03/15 15:21
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!
Spam spam spam SPAM SPAM SPAM!!!!!!
by GoneFishin446 on 2019/05/30 19:21
Inferior service from an inferior company. AT& T is in the same sinking boat because they chose to partner with Yahoo without any consent from account holders. There has been much discussion reference the need for Government oversight into predominant social media companies, but I believe the attention needs to be refocused on antitrust laws applicable to GLOBAL CONGLOMERATIONS such as AT& T, who seem to be on a fast track to acquiring every service available leaving few remaining competitor options for the general public. Sounds disturbingly like they are on their way to becoming a “monopoly” after acquiring Direct TV and various other companies. Have you tried to wade through their miserable customer service or tech support lately? Very little risk of having to improve their service when there are fewer & fewer available competitors & in some U.S. demographics/geographical locations there are no other options. We are headed down a very SLIPPERY slope if the ‘Amazons’ and ‘AT&Ts’ are allowed to purchase, own and control every consumer market. Just saying!!
Not impressed
by Scotty22873 on 2018/11/09 16:56
I’ve had yahoo email addresses for years and have always been pleased with it reliability. I have always used the standard iOS mail on my iPhone and had both personal and business yahoo addresses linked and everything worked very well for many years. Then yahoo took away the ability to push my emails to me on the iOS email server. So I downloaded this app. I now sometimes don’t even get email notifications at all, and I have my desktop, iOS mail, and this app. I’ve contacted Apple and everything is fine on their end, there is something going on with yahoo. And good luck getting a hold of anyone for support. They just direct you to their community forums, which is garbage. If you are looking to sign up with a new email address, use gmail and it’s app. If you are stuck with a yahoo account, I hope your experience is better than mine. Also, when I get a notification, it’s the same sound as a text message. How hard is it to give us an option to change a notification sounds?!
Good but could be improved.
by JRLB12457 on 2019/08/02 19:21
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?
by Skthink on 2017/10/06 19:36
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.
Missing emails
by Lefty21955 on 2019/10/01 04:36
The app updates seem to have wrecked havoc with the delivery of mail. The worst part is that there is no support, unless you are willing to spend $4.99/month. And, if you bite that bullet, you will be dealing with an offshore customer call center. Enough said! After calling that number, but not opting to join, I was told the only support for non-premium members, is to read the useless online articles. I had already tried that with no success. Next, I decided to log in to my account online, rather than use the app. There, I discovered that, between 9/25 and 9/30, there were 336 emails viewable there, which were missing on the app feed (absolutely the same account!). At that point, I decided to delete the app. I’m not sure what made me think of this, but I then reloaded the app. Guess what! All of those missing emails, along with the ones missing after an earlier update, are now visible in the app version. If Yahoo is going to update its app, they should advise users about potential problems and how to fix them. At the very least, there should be a way to contact someone on the phone or in a chat window on its so-called “help” website. I have been very disappointed with this app ever since it removed a way to sort emails. It is impossible to keep up with and delete inordinate amounts of emails just using a search tool. My guess is that yahoo servers are housing millions, if not more, ancient, useless emails, because of this.
No batch delete option is the killer flaw
by Lavaca Kid on 2018/02/16 17:59
I’ve used several email programs over the years. Except for one major time-consuming, labor-intensive nightmare of a flaw, I would rank Yahoo! 5 stars. As it is, it’s a stretch to rate it at 3. I want to use Yahoo! as my go-to account. But I have to stick with Outlook until Yahoo! makes it possible to select all, scroll through email inboxes, select unwanted messages and then delete the marked messages. As it is, the process is essentially backwards. With a few thousand messages accumulated it takes countless hours to batch mark all messages and then, one at a time, choose the emails I wish to KEEP, and delete the remainder. Outlook, for this reason alone, is far easier to manage. The day Yahoo! makes it as simple as Outlook to mark and batch delete select messages, 3 Stars go up to 5 and I buy in 100%. Sure hope this can, and ultimately will, be done.
Terrible
by JayJay28282 on 2018/11/19 16:50
Update: The original complaints have stopped, but I still don’t like it. I get the same spam over and over again...Squarespace is about to delete my nonexistent account and I have to update my credit information. I send every email to Spam and I’ve been doing it for at least a year. Does Spam mean anything? Is there no way for Yahoo to stop our spam? Also, if I send an email to 3 people and one responds, I read it and delete it. Another responds and both of the responses show up. I deleted the first one; why is it there? I delete them both, and the 3rd person responds, so all 3 responses show up. I end up with a whole line of emails when all I want to do is see the most recent. Why doesn’t “delete” mean “delete?” Original: Whenever I get an email with something to open, I just get a blank screen. For instance, I tried to add another email address, but had to change the password for that address. When I got the change the password email and clicked on it, I couldn't do it because I got a white screen with Only the time on top. Same happens if I get an attachment, coupon, etc. All I can do with this app is open word emails. One plus is I don't get the "Rate it" popup I was constantly getting before, in which I rated it many times and nothing was improved.
Finally used this, as bad as expected
by Kelinci on 2017/12/19 18:30
So after getting multiple spam messages from yahoo mail telling me to use this app instead of iMail, one of my mailboxes mysteriously stopped syncing with iMail (gee I wonder why) and I found I had no other choice. Decided to try it, how bad could it be? They somehow made this app worse than any expectation I could have had. One of my inboxes had “no mail” in it despite the fact that I know it does. While trying to clean up the other inbox I kept accidentally swiping the advertisement on the top. Rather than just ignoring what is obviously a mis-swipe to get rid of spam, Yahoo thinks it’s a good idea to pop up an even more obnoxious multiple choice survey about why you would try to get rid of the advertisement. This app also somehow hung up and crashed twice in my 5 minute attempt to use it (Yes I’m running the most up to date iOS). I will switch to a different email provider before continuing to use this trainwreck. Find another way to monetize your service Yahoo.
