Needs one critical thing...
by Lala33 on 2022/01/24 23:24
I have a lot of e-mails that I need to delete. When I type keywords in the search field to delete a bunch of specific e-mails and fill in the circle for 2021 to select e-mails received in 2021, it doesn’t delete every e-mail from 2021, just the ones displayed on the screen. When I continue scrolling, there are more that haven’t been selected. Please make it easier to delete multiple e-mails. I thought it was just the app, but I had the same issue in the desktop version. I would like to type specific keywords for the e-mails I want to delete, select all (which would select every e-mail with those keywords from multiple years), and delete all of them, not some of them. This is the second time I’ve requested this. Hopefully, someone who can add this to future updates is reading these reviews.

by 2manyemails on 2022/01/24 14:23
I’ve had my yahoo email for a very long time. (At least 20 years) Why is it so hard to delete unwanted emails and keep spam out of my inbox? I delete emails and watch them return to my inbox just a quick as I delete them. It’s very frustrating. There are so many unwanted emails in my inbox that I don’t know what to do. I just got to the point of using my other emails because frankly I do not know how to delete the account.

Not receiving mail
by mawmawsab on 2022/01/24 12:49
I am not receiving half the emails I use to get! I’ve had to go look to make sure I’m subscribed to the ones I’m not receiving anymore and I am. I haven’t changed anything so I don’t understand how this could happen. Yes I have checked spam and no they are not there either.

I am sick and tired of the senseless advertising that I am not interested in. I am sick of the political mail and it doesn’t matter if I unsubscribe it never stops. It never used to be that way. I used to only get mail that was for me and now I have to delete 30 emails to get to the relevant ones. This is supposed to save time and paper and all it does is intrude on my life.

Hello Yahoo. I have enjoyed yahoo for the last 20yrs.My suggestion is that Yahoo should fight hard all the junky intruders and help to keep my mailbox clean. Also, make it easier to make a phone call to Yahoo customers service desk for some quick help!For now it is hard to get somebody on the phone. Thanks Jacob.

I have had yahoo mail for many many years. Last month I stopped receiving all messages and have been unable to get in touch with yahoo.

I have had to make a completely new email with another company and am slowly transitioning all my accounts over.

by N810dahood on 2022/01/20 17:06
This app’s awful behavior is a perfect reflection of this awful company. They let through 7 spam emails through to my inbox this morning while blocking legitimate emails. Good job yahoo! You’re ever so helpful… I’ve been moving away from this because this is just downright awful. And instead of making this app better, they change the way it looks and functions. It’s so ugly and unresponsive. I hate it. It perfectly describes how this company looks at users. They don’t care what you want or need. They just put a bandaid on a cut limb. Awful. Stay away from yahoo at all costs.

Loved it until recently
by AlyfromBelfast on 2022/01/19 21:11
This was my go-to app for a long time. Until the last month or so. I loved the option to choose "today" and it will select emails from today so I can mark as read. But now when I do that, it chooses not only today, but over 336k emails since day one of my yahoo mail account. I don’t understand the change and am begging for this option to change back to the way it was. Please and thank you. Updated: even after the most recent update, I’m still having this issue. It’s driving me crazy! I emailed all the info, as was asked of me by the developer, a few weeks ago. PS: Months later it is still driving me crazy.

Worst app I have installed on my phone
by tee 22/7 on 2022/01/15 23:48
Yahoo is now putting ads in the middle of my list of emails with their latest app version. I can&#39;t concentrate on visually grouping my messages anymore. It&#39;s completely offensive, and the developers should be extremely ashamed of themselves. It&#39;s egregiously disgusting. Old versions of the app only included a text ad at the top. It&#39;s a trash app now because of this invasive ad, and i feel like a trashy person for even having to use it. What a huge mistake it was to update the app after not updating it for a while. Avoid this app and all Yahoo apps at all costs if you can.

REVIEW OF YAHOO MAIL BY A TEXAS ATTORNEY
by Dadgrata on 2022/01/15 06:24
Hi Margaret Wood here, Texas Attorney, TBN 21903400, active, In accessing Yahoo with other mail services, I conclude Yahoo is superior with more innovations than other mail services I have used. With Yahoo, I have the ability to vary the text with Bold or Italics and more. Additionally, the Contact list is easy to reach and use — there are safeguards to preserve accidental deletions. Unwanted messages are easily put into the automatic Spam folder. Special thanks to the creators and innovators of Yahoo. Margaret Wood
Bad, plus version a rip off
by applesux91 on 2022/01/15 04:39
I bought the plus version for 1.99 a month solely to be able to unblock some email addresses a crazy abusive controlling “friend” previously blocked without my knowledge or consent. Despite me paying to use these extra features, it still displays as if I don’t have it, but I got to my subscriptions and I’m paying for it? That is very much a rip off, fraud, or whatever, or there’s just a really big error that seriously needs to be remedied because this is ridiculous. I can’t request customer service because you only get that if you pay, and it thinks I haven’t! But it send me to manage my subscriptions and it’s right there, on auto renewal. Please fix this.

I have had Yahoo probably since I was about 12 years old I am 37 now and I love yahoo I’ve never had a problem with it I’ve had plenty of problems with other apps another mailing services you know, losing your mail , locking you out of your own Mail not giving you access to it holding your personal files and memories that ranson dang near , they make it a secure enoughTo trust the fact that your files will be there tomorrow and for years to come , I haveBeen blocked and denied access to my own accounts numerous times either milling apps sites what ever you want to call them , a few times actually yahoo has been the only one that’s ever been there threw it all , they have never turned there back on me it’s always been there for me that’s the only account that I have I can trust and I am always feel that I am secure and that if somthing happened , they would have my back here for once are you and I probably always will always been ther fir you , yahoo thank you
Great app one small flaw
by Timc266 on 2021/07/16 19:59
I like this app I have no problems with its functionality. Perhaps others should update it if having functional issues. One thing that would make it perfect in my opinion (thus deserving of 5 stars) is if one had the ability to change the sound that is used for notifications of new mail received. I tried doing so in both phone settings and in app settings to no avail. One of the main reasons I switched to this app instead of using the Mail app in iOS was because for the last month or so (maybe longer) the iOS Mail app was not receiving pushed mail from Yahoo. It was before because I paid for that ability from Yahoo (paid so that POP mail would be supported). I guess Yahoo decided to stop that service or make it slow or whatever maybe to push (no pun intended) their own Mail app. It&#39;s fine. I&#39;m not too disappointed. (I will be stopping payments for that though) Anyway, like I wrote, the main reason I got the app was so I could get mail as it&#39;s pushed to the server and now that&#39;s happening again. But the sound is too much like other notifications (like Tweet notifications and calendar reminders) so I can&#39;t tell by sound alone what just occurred on my phone. The sound is too much like other notifications in other words. So if we could change that notification sound that would be awesome. It would make the app perfect, IMO. I already submitted this as feedback in the app but I thought I&#39;d write a review about it as well.

The only thing I don’t like about this and the reason I give it only two stars is not only do I get advertisements at the top of my email inbox but sometimes I get spam emails in my inbox instead of going into my spam folder and when I ask Yahoo! about this they tell me to upgrade to where I have to pay $.99 so I won’t get those spam emails or the ads up at the top of my email inbox that’s another annoying thing if it’s free then you shouldn’t have to pay anything to have the ad removed if you say you just like the ad you shouldn’t have to pay anything for an email service unless it’s a business account and you have a lot of other features and with me I just go ahead and send emails every once in a while and this is the same account as I’ve had for about five or six years since I opened my email address account and that’s my opinion of Yahoo! basic if I don’t want the ad they say it’s called the Yahoo! pro program and I don’t want to pay that because when I signed up for Yahoo! basic I was looking for a free and non- ad based email and that’s what Yahoo! was I know they have do you have to use Yahoo! pro if you don’t want the advertisements at the top why should you have to pay if it’s a free service for no advertisements why is it deleting enough
No Setting For Notification Sounds
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 &amp; 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.
Terrible
by JayJay28282 on 2021/11/18 12:24
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&#39;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&#39;t get the &#34;Rate it&#34; popup I was constantly getting before, in which I rated it many times and nothing was improved.
I don’t want to sound entitled
by EgyptEntitledNot on 2020/04/14 00:08
Yahoo! has truly become a terrible email service in the last 3 years or so. Before, there would be one or two SPAM emails that would get through the SPAM filters, in place, every month or so. Now it seems that everyday there are multiple SPAM emails that make it through to my inbox and it’s fairly annoying. I have to keep marking them all SPAM but that’s not stopping anything. I’ve had this email address for 10 years, but it’s time for a change. I’ll be looking to close all of my Yahoo! email accounts and move over to Gmail. I’ve noticed that the email address I’ve had for 12 years with Gmail has not gotten more than a handful of SPAM emails in my inbox over the last 12 years! It will definitely take a few weeks to change my email address with every online account I have, but it will be worth it once I have an effective SPAM filter in place by having Gmail email addresses. UPDATE: Someone on the Yahoo! development team responded to my review, but did not thoroughly READ my review. Suggesting that I make sure to mark the emails spam when it clearly states in my review that I have been marking them all spam and it’s not working. Then follows up with they’ll let the “anti-spam team” know. Laughing - What a joke!
Worst Ever: Yahoo Mail - The Newer Crappier AOL
by KingSnarkle on 2021/10/13 17:10
Remember how horrible AOL was, and how excited we all were to leave that mess? Well let me introduce hot mess 2021 - Yahoo Mail. They are nice enough to sell your personal data to their partner sites without your permission. Go to settings. Go to Privacy Dashboard. Click the underlined words “privacy dashboard”, and you can see each individual partner, what data they are collecting, and who they’re selling it to. If you have 30 minutes to spare you can go into each partner and “opt out”. But wait…..there’s more. In the case of three of their partners, you will need to perform this action on a daily basis, because Yahoo Mail loves you so much that they’re gonna opt you right back in the following day. I’ve sent feedback regarding this. Especially since I am a resident in a State that has very specific guidelines regarding the sale of my personal data, and my ability to opt out of such practices. I don’t expect a response or resolution- that would be too much like “the right thing to do”, so I will post this as fair warning to anyone using, or looking to use this mail platform- They’re going to sell your data. They’re going to make it as difficult as possible to opt out. They’re going to make it difficult for you to even know it’s happening. I wish I could give them half of a star.
Spoofing issues on my yahoo emails
by AliceJ21 on 2021/09/05 18:12
A few months ago I started having problems with my iPhone and iPad and everything was giving me problems! Called every Technician I could use and they thought I was crazy because they said there was no problems with my devices or WiFi! I kept having issues with my emails going missing or I was receiving emails from PayPal that said I owed a payment or mentioning my card! I don’t have a card with PayPal but have account that I’m paying off with PayPal Credit! Issues constantly and money came out of my bank account from PayPal then received a package with similar items I had recently viewed from 4Patriots only not the same and no invoice and item was no good! All this to say I have been hacked from my yahoo emails because security is bad! My personal information is all over the internet now! Had to erase my phone completely last night because the problem has grown so big! Using my iPad right now hoping they don’t get in it! BEWARE!!!!! Spoofing is a horrible issue with your email accounts and can turn your life upside down it has mine! My bank is threatening to stop my account from online banking and it. Isn’t my fault! Not always on your email provider! 🙁🙁
20+ year User :(
by Me123ues on 2020/07/15 15:01
...maybe 30+ years. I’m a long-term user, short term hater. A year or two ago, after Yahoo’s biggest upgrade I could ever remember, learning to use Yahoo with all the bugs it brought was sheer agony. For years, I was able to log into our 3 email accounts ‘once’ and then switch between accounts with a keystroke - that went away. Working through the problems finally ended with losing my departed wife’s account being lost...with all it’s history that we’re memories of her. Then I entered the ‘season of constant login’ and absolutely hate how you set THAT up. I struggled with access via ANY browser but usually use Chrome. I’m still having TIME CONSUMMING problems with that - YES I HAVE YOUR APP on my iPhones and iPads! The use of the Yahoo app is a time synch and a constant source of frustration...if not un-Christian thoughts: more times as not, I don’t get the tool bar at the bottom to reply, move or delete emails and have to start a NEW thread just to reply - business associates complain a bit when I do this. The ONLY reason I’m still with Yahoo...again, the ONLY REASON is I don’t know how to switch my personal URL over to another company and also save my ‘history’ for my remaining two accounts. Does Yahoo EVER, EVER, run a new release through a ‘test group’ for feedback?
Yahoo
by Tomeh1 on 2019/03/09 13:57
Articles too biased. Too many from CNN &amp; 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 &amp; regulations to make autos safer, how our lower &amp; middle class are being hurt badly by illegal immigration &amp; 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’ &amp; how much this investigation is costing taxpayers &amp; how much the ‘political investigations by democrats are costing money &amp; 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 &amp; 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😡
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&#39;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&#39;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. &#34;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&#39;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&#39;t respect ours.&#34;
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.
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&#39;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.
Pay to get emails when they arrive!
by Cerealkeller on 2020/11/04 20:07
Yahoo mail basic used to be very reliable. It would notify you when you got an email and there was an inexpensive one time fee to remove ads. In the past year or more, the app only checks for mail a few times an hour and notifies you, when it checks, if you have any new mail. It’s important that I get certain emails immediately. I wear an Apple Watch for that specific purpose, well that and for text messages. Because I can’t hear or feel the phone often times when it notifies me. The point is, with the paid option, I can get my emails when they arrive! It’s ridiculous I have to pay for it though. And ads? I paid, what was intended to be a one time fee, to remove ads from the Yahoo mail app years ago, and for some reason they just started displaying ads again and there was nothing I could do about it. Am I happy with the app? Yeah, it performs extremely well, and I am generally happy with it. But the fact I am forced to pay a subscription to make it perform basic functionality is unacceptable.
Slowest email experience ever
by Spartygal22 on 2021/08/18 17:38
I downloaded this app because I kept getting notices that the preloaded mail app on my iPad would no longer work with a yahoo account. It has been an extremely frustrating experience. The app takes at least 30 seconds to load every time I open it. Then the deals for any newsletter I’m subscribed to display display at the top and it takes 15+ seconds to unfreeze before I can scroll down to read the message. When I delete a message it takes another 20+ seconds to move on to the next one. Flipping from my inbox to another folder isn’t even worth it. When composing an email, if I have to exit the app to look something up in Safari (like how to spell a word, etc.), it usually will reload when I come back and I have to go find the message in my drafts. (Even if I was only gone for less than a minute.) Every action takes forever. Also, formatting text is extremely limited. I can’t even change font sizes, indent paragraphs, nor make bullet points. The only plus I can give it is that it allows me to report messages as spam. Seriously, I had a faster experience on my PC 20 years ago when it was infected with a virus.
Horrible App - Makes You Want to Switch to Gmail
by DeeTee38 on 2020/02/28 06:23
This email app is absolutely horrible. I’ve been using it as my primary personal email address for several years and it constantly has glitches, despite numerous version updates. The very worst is when you send emails, it often sits in your outbox with an error message and you’d never find out unless you happen to check your outbox and find out it never sent. I’ve had several important emails that this happened with and the 1-3 day delay cost me thousands of dollars. Then there’s also the issue that very often when responding to an email and switching screens to another app in the middle (e.g. you’re checking something on Safari to see what to write before finishing the email), it will literally save 10 different drafts of your email after sending it that you don’t have the ability to delete, which completely clogs your inbox and prevents you from scrolling in your email history to pull up older emails in the thread. I’ve had my Yahoo email for 25 years and am about fed up with the poor quality being in 2020. Time to finally get a new email address with Gmail and short Yahoo’s stock.
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&#39;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.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!
by Uncivil high on 2021/05/21 17:04
This is app is honestly by far the worst mail app i have ever seen!! They way things are organized is just one big MESS!! Every time i go to look at my recent email it for some reason will remove the email i just opened and then it will be about a couple minutes of me refreshing the app so that it will pop up again !! Also i have no idea why i can not look at past emails that are more than a week old ??!! This app is so stupid. You touch one thing and it’ll pop up a screen where there’s more options and everything is just kind of thrown in there. It is so hard to maneuver. I can’t find my old emails i need and i absolutely hate this app!! I’m 23 and this app makes me feel like i’m 40 because of how difficult it is to use. I am currently in the process of replacing my Yahoo email with a new gmail on everything i’ve used the yahoo on because this is app is a nightmare. and I didn’t even mention all the ads you get. I don’t feel very safe knowing companies can just go through my email and send Ads based on what information i feed it. And this app doesn’t even filter out spam or virus contained emails. Please do not get this app!
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 &amp; 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.
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
Yahoo Small Business Email Disruption!
by onevoicecounts on 2019/05/15 21:06
In the 11+ years of having 4 (actually 5) small business accounts with Yahoo, I have NEVER experienced the exasperating and costly issues that have wreaked havoc on my business and communications since the migration on April 24 of 2019. It has taken 2 weeks for us to simply access our business emails. Have not spoken to anyone after multiple tries and tireless hours in hold. Microsoft and GoDaddy actually both answer their calls and solve issues. NOW, I must access my paired down (and, yes soon to be closed) Yahoo email accounts through an app on my phone. Have you heard of call centers? Staffing up to offer customer solutions? Would like to hear projected revenue loss numbers if you were shut down for 2 weeks. I’ll bet our percentages would be the same... What separates us is that I would never treat customers like this and I would answer my customer calls.
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&#39;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.
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.
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&#39;t get it deleted I will not use this app at all!
Suspicious activity
by sloppywafflex on 2021/10/30 12:10
I don&#39;t know if its just me, but this app is kind of suspicious. Never had any problems whatsoever until I downloaded this app. I started receiving a lot of phishing mail everyday for the past 2 months. And it got to the point that it just wouldn&#39;t stop. So I thought that I would be able to block or unsubscribe(even though I&#39;ve never subscribed to those emails)and to my surprise you have to pay to do that. Really made me rethink how and where these emails came from. Uninstalled the app right away after finding out that I have to pay to unsubscribe/block emails. Apparently nothing comes free these days. Oh well, there are better apps out there that offer that same kind of service but for free. The fact that I just recently scrolled through all the reviews proved my point. All those spam emails that were supposed to head to the spam did not because yahoo allowed it to bypass the spam filter. Horrible people. Edit. Havent received any spam mails since I uninstalled this app. Please I do not recommend installing this app as this app will allow spam mail to bypass the spam filter.
Fixed in record time.
by Harley-Charlie on 2021/07/21 02:13
I tried using the chat feature. It’s useless. There is no way to contact the developer so I hope this will work. Suddenly my app started freezing up and shutting down. Every time I open it, it immediately shuts down. I restarted my phone. Same issues. I went into the App Store and discovered there was an update. So I updated it. Same thing. It opens and closes immediately. I paid the extra money for the app. It’s been working great until about 1-1/2 hours ago. I hope the developers will see this and fix the problem. The mail app that comes with the phone is very insufficient when it comes to reading email. I found a phone number to contact. This was a systemwide issue for iPhones. It was fixed within a couple of hours after I contacted them. Unfortunately, it appears that Verizon has bought Yahoo.
Bucking the FLAT minimalist trend --- FINALLY
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!
Batch Deleting? And snark?
by Phoebe2008 on 2020/01/26 15:31
One of the oddest things I’ve found with Yahoo Mail on mobile devices is that if I do a search for a sender, I have no option to ‘delete all’ once they appear. I have to delete each one separately. Takes FOREVER. Another, more serious concern is the apparent lack of concern for customer satisfaction. From the reviews, I’ve seen and my own experience, the attitude of those manning the help desk is “If you don’t like it, use another app.” I’d rather work with a chat bot than be subjected to sarcastic dismissal from a tech. I’ve had Yahoo Mail since 2002; it was my first email ever, but I’ve lost the nostalgic attachment. AND, I will say that nobody is going to track my Internet actions and profit on it AND insult me. Just THINKING about upgrading to the new app and being plagued with ads only to be extorted to get rid of them irritates me. Besides the latest research shows nobody clicks on ads anymore. I’m more likely to deliberately NOT shop at a website that throws an ad in my face tbh. Yahoo...you have to be bleeding customers.
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.
UPGRADE REGRET
by overwhelmed by zombies on 2019/10/18 11:53
This is easily the most annoying mail app I have ever subscribed to...and that includes original AOL with all its instability. It seems the whole purpose of the upgrade was to be so irritating through ad persistence that paying for a reasonable mail experience seems preferable. Sponsor ads not only live a zombie life...instantly reappearing after deletion...but now Yahoo makes you go through the process of telling them why you don’t want the ad...and holds mail in suspension until you answer. Hello...the ads are annoying...yes, they make Yahoo money...we get that. Before this upgrade, we could at least block delete unwanted mail...now it’s a tog-of-war between ad bots and humans over individual emails...and the bots are winning. Before posting this, I read a number of reviews...the developer comments basically boil down to “pay or suffer”...thanks for nothing Yahoo.
Loss of an almost complete email
by Was in love on 2021/03/14 02:07
I wrote an email and was going back and forth copying pictures to send in the email. I had to abandon the email to serve my kids supper but left it open and when I came back it had saved only the guy’s email address and the Subject the content of the email was gone! It had in parentheses (null)! It was extremely frustrating since I had worked on the email for over two hours. Yes I should have pressed the X button but I always worry that that will throw it away instead of saving as a draft! Now if it can save the person receiving the email and the subject, why not content if it decides to get out of it. I did not close the program otherwise I would be solely to blame. But it was still open as well as 4-5 other programs I use frequently.
Where is Unsubscribe in the Yahoo app or account?
by jackgrl on 2021/11/03 20:27
I do not see it (Unsubscribe)—in the icons that you can control at the bottom of your screen. When I go to customize your inbox, it’s not there either. It’s not in settings, nor notifications. When I’m on my inbox page, I tap on the purple ‘y’ in the upper left top of my inbox screen, and it takes me to my account. Settings, notifications, setting up your inbox, etc. I cannot find where I can unsubscribe right there and then. However, where I DO INDEED see where I have the option to unsubscribe,—-is in the merchant that is sending me their unwanted annoying email. At the bottom of THEIR email, it gives you the option Unsubscribe “here”. Thanks, annoying spam merchant!!….. but where is ‘unsubscribe’ in my Yahoo app? I’d rather unsubscribe directly from Yahoo! Thanks. I hope someone from Yahoo! gets back to me regarding this issue.
Decent, better alternatives
by tommtjutsu on 2021/05/20 01:34
It functions as a mail app most of the time. From time to time I will get an email but not get a notification on my phone. Other times, I will have received an email but it doesn’t show up in the app, only when I check it in a web browser, which is frustrating. The main reason it gets three stars and not four is because I constantly get a notification from the app saying “we miss you! You haven’t checked your inbox lately. See what’s new!“ There’s no way to turn that notification off and it’s extremely annoying when I check my phone thinking I got an email and I see this stupid message. It would be one thing if it happens rarely, but there have been days where it happens multiple times in the same day, even if I never actually got an email. No way to turn it off without turning off all notifications. Again, there are better alternatives to this app.
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!
Used to be ok, now has stupid notifications
by DemonicPenguin on 2021/12/30 05:50
By the time I got an iPhone and this app Yahoo! had been demoted to my secondary email account. I still used to check it daily until a few months ago when they decided it was ok to push notifications that weren’t new mail. I want to make sure all of my mail in this account is read and taken care of, so a near constant notification number on the app icon is annoying, frustrating and unavoidable. I rerouted nearly every email that came to this account to my primary mail because of this, making this obsolete. If I could delete my mail account and leave my fantasy sports account active I would. As an email service this is subpar. There are plenty other quality ones out there. Don’t choose this. Update to respond to dev response: A worthless canned response without any regard for what I actually wrote. I’m done. I’m done with Yahoo! I’m well aware of the notifications options, but more specifically the notifications you force on me without the ability to deactivate them.
Very Good
by If you aint 1st your last on 2020/07/05 20:29
I have 8 different email addresses coming in to this client along with my sports and news feeds, it’s very customizable and still streamlined for ease of use. I only use my iPad and iPhone email clients for my iCloud account and it just keeps everything in it&#39;s place. Yahoo’s main app is very convenient and allows me to hit the ground running with all of my calendars and the news and sports that interests me and not what something thinks that I’m interested in. I just love, to have the ability of keeping all my different email signature&#39;s separate. I haven’t seen or had the need to upgrade to the pro version of the client, but it is an option for zero adds. Honestly I don’t even notice them anymore. Try it out for free, or don’t I just know that it&#39;s a work horse and it more than get the job done!
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&#39;ve been asked to rate it at least once every two days. If you don&#39;t like your apps to bug you, don&#39;t use this app. Update: As if this app wasn&#39;t annoying enough, it now puts ads right in the middle of your email list, forcing you to have to click the &#34;X&#34; 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&#39;ll never click your ad EVER.
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!
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.
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.
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.
App won’t even open
by Doc814 on 2020/07/16 06:31
Just downloaded this app onto my new iPhone, but it won’t even open! All I get is a message that, “Safari cannot open the page because it could not establish a secure connection to the page.” Tried opening Yahoo Mail in Yahoo. Still nothing; just sits. Pretty useless. Update: App still won’t open on mobile device. Unable to make yahoo mail the default E-Mail on my phone. Sometimes, if I keep trying to open the app long enough, I can get to the first sign-on screen (why can’t the name and password be on ONE page?) for my user name. Click continue, and it stops again. Keep at it long enough, and I might even get to enter my password. That’s as far as it goes. If I enter my password, I immediately receive a “timed-out” message. Sadly, the exact same thing is now happening on my desktop. Took over 2 hours just to sign into my mail account. Even worse, I received a response from the developer requesting additional info, but they didn’t leave a way to contact them.

Needs one critical thing...
by Lala33 on 2022/01/24 23:24
I have a lot of e-mails that I need to delete. When I type keywords in the search field to delete a bunch of specific e-mails and fill in the circle for 2021 to select e-mails received in 2021, it doesn’t delete every e-mail from 2021, just the ones displayed on the screen. When I continue scrolling, there are more that haven’t been selected. Please make it easier to delete multiple e-mails. I thought it was just the app, but I had the same issue in the desktop version. I would like to type specific keywords for the e-mails I want to delete, select all (which would select every e-mail with those keywords from multiple years), and delete all of them, not some of them. This is the second time I’ve requested this. Hopefully, someone who can add this to future updates is reading these reviews.

I’ve had my yahoo email for a very long time. (At least 20 years) Why is it so hard to delete unwanted emails and keep spam out of my inbox? I delete emails and watch them return to my inbox just a quick as I delete them. It’s very frustrating. There are so many unwanted emails in my inbox that I don’t know what to do. I just got to the point of using my other emails because frankly I do not know how to delete the account.

3 stars because yahoo is indistinguishable from other services. The promotion of a “premium” program keeps popping up when I open the app on my computer. Can’t scroll to read message until I click the x.

Hello Yahoo. I have enjoyed yahoo for the last 20yrs.My suggestion is that Yahoo should fight hard all the junky intruders and help to keep my mailbox clean. Also, make it easier to make a phone call to Yahoo customers service desk for some quick help!For now it is hard to get somebody on the phone. Thanks Jacob.

by N810dahood on 2022/01/20 17:06
This app’s awful behavior is a perfect reflection of this awful company. They let through 7 spam emails through to my inbox this morning while blocking legitimate emails. Good job yahoo! You’re ever so helpful… I’ve been moving away from this because this is just downright awful. And instead of making this app better, they change the way it looks and functions. It’s so ugly and unresponsive. I hate it. It perfectly describes how this company looks at users. They don’t care what you want or need. They just put a bandaid on a cut limb. Awful. Stay away from yahoo at all costs.

Loved it until recently
by AlyfromBelfast on 2022/01/19 21:11
This was my go-to app for a long time. Until the last month or so. I loved the option to choose &#34;today&#34; and it will select emails from today so I can mark as read. But now when I do that, it chooses not only today, but over 336k emails since day one of my yahoo mail account. I don’t understand the change and am begging for this option to change back to the way it was. Please and thank you. Updated: even after the most recent update, I’m still having this issue. It’s driving me crazy! I emailed all the info, as was asked of me by the developer, a few weeks ago. PS: Months later it is still driving me crazy.

Worst app I have installed on my phone
by tee 22/7 on 2022/01/15 23:48
Yahoo is now putting ads in the middle of my list of emails with their latest app version. I can&#39;t concentrate on visually grouping my messages anymore. It&#39;s completely offensive, and the developers should be extremely ashamed of themselves. It&#39;s egregiously disgusting. Old versions of the app only included a text ad at the top. It&#39;s a trash app now because of this invasive ad, and i feel like a trashy person for even having to use it. What a huge mistake it was to update the app after not updating it for a while. Avoid this app and all Yahoo apps at all costs if you can.

REVIEW OF YAHOO MAIL BY A TEXAS ATTORNEY
by Dadgrata on 2022/01/15 06:24
Hi Margaret Wood here, Texas Attorney, TBN 21903400, active, In accessing Yahoo with other mail services, I conclude Yahoo is superior with more innovations than other mail services I have used. With Yahoo, I have the ability to vary the text with Bold or Italics and more. Additionally, the Contact list is easy to reach and use — there are safeguards to preserve accidental deletions. Unwanted messages are easily put into the automatic Spam folder. Special thanks to the creators and innovators of Yahoo. Margaret Wood
Bad, plus version a rip off
by applesux91 on 2022/01/15 04:39
I bought the plus version for 1.99 a month solely to be able to unblock some email addresses a crazy abusive controlling “friend” previously blocked without my knowledge or consent. Despite me paying to use these extra features, it still displays as if I don’t have it, but I got to my subscriptions and I’m paying for it? That is very much a rip off, fraud, or whatever, or there’s just a really big error that seriously needs to be remedied because this is ridiculous. I can’t request customer service because you only get that if you pay, and it thinks I haven’t! But it send me to manage my subscriptions and it’s right there, on auto renewal. Please fix this.

I have had Yahoo probably since I was about 12 years old I am 37 now and I love yahoo I’ve never had a problem with it I’ve had plenty of problems with other apps another mailing services you know, losing your mail , locking you out of your own Mail not giving you access to it holding your personal files and memories that ranson dang near , they make it a secure enoughTo trust the fact that your files will be there tomorrow and for years to come , I haveBeen blocked and denied access to my own accounts numerous times either milling apps sites what ever you want to call them , a few times actually yahoo has been the only one that’s ever been there threw it all , they have never turned there back on me it’s always been there for me that’s the only account that I have I can trust and I am always feel that I am secure and that if somthing happened , they would have my back here for once are you and I probably always will always been ther fir you , yahoo thank you
Great app one small flaw
by Timc266 on 2021/07/16 19:59
I like this app I have no problems with its functionality. Perhaps others should update it if having functional issues. One thing that would make it perfect in my opinion (thus deserving of 5 stars) is if one had the ability to change the sound that is used for notifications of new mail received. I tried doing so in both phone settings and in app settings to no avail. One of the main reasons I switched to this app instead of using the Mail app in iOS was because for the last month or so (maybe longer) the iOS Mail app was not receiving pushed mail from Yahoo. It was before because I paid for that ability from Yahoo (paid so that POP mail would be supported). I guess Yahoo decided to stop that service or make it slow or whatever maybe to push (no pun intended) their own Mail app. It&#39;s fine. I&#39;m not too disappointed. (I will be stopping payments for that though) Anyway, like I wrote, the main reason I got the app was so I could get mail as it&#39;s pushed to the server and now that&#39;s happening again. But the sound is too much like other notifications (like Tweet notifications and calendar reminders) so I can&#39;t tell by sound alone what just occurred on my phone. The sound is too much like other notifications in other words. So if we could change that notification sound that would be awesome. It would make the app perfect, IMO. I already submitted this as feedback in the app but I thought I&#39;d write a review about it as well.
I have Yahoo! basic were I don’t pay anything for it
by MABasenjis on 2021/04/17 13:19
The only thing I don’t like about this and the reason I give it only two stars is not only do I get advertisements at the top of my email inbox but sometimes I get spam emails in my inbox instead of going into my spam folder and when I ask Yahoo! about this they tell me to upgrade to where I have to pay $.99 so I won’t get those spam emails or the ads up at the top of my email inbox that’s another annoying thing if it’s free then you shouldn’t have to pay anything to have the ad removed if you say you just like the ad you shouldn’t have to pay anything for an email service unless it’s a business account and you have a lot of other features and with me I just go ahead and send emails every once in a while and this is the same account as I’ve had for about five or six years since I opened my email address account and that’s my opinion of Yahoo! basic if I don’t want the ad they say it’s called the Yahoo! pro program and I don’t want to pay that because when I signed up for Yahoo! basic I was looking for a free and non- ad based email and that’s what Yahoo! was I know they have do you have to use Yahoo! pro if you don’t want the advertisements at the top why should you have to pay if it’s a free service for no advertisements why is it deleting enough
No Setting For Notification Sounds
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 &amp; 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.
Terrible
by JayJay28282 on 2021/11/18 12:24
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&#39;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&#39;t get the &#34;Rate it&#34; popup I was constantly getting before, in which I rated it many times and nothing was improved.
I don’t want to sound entitled
by EgyptEntitledNot on 2020/04/14 00:08
Yahoo! has truly become a terrible email service in the last 3 years or so. Before, there would be one or two SPAM emails that would get through the SPAM filters, in place, every month or so. Now it seems that everyday there are multiple SPAM emails that make it through to my inbox and it’s fairly annoying. I have to keep marking them all SPAM but that’s not stopping anything. I’ve had this email address for 10 years, but it’s time for a change. I’ll be looking to close all of my Yahoo! email accounts and move over to Gmail. I’ve noticed that the email address I’ve had for 12 years with Gmail has not gotten more than a handful of SPAM emails in my inbox over the last 12 years! It will definitely take a few weeks to change my email address with every online account I have, but it will be worth it once I have an effective SPAM filter in place by having Gmail email addresses. UPDATE: Someone on the Yahoo! development team responded to my review, but did not thoroughly READ my review. Suggesting that I make sure to mark the emails spam when it clearly states in my review that I have been marking them all spam and it’s not working. Then follows up with they’ll let the “anti-spam team” know. Laughing - What a joke!
Worst Ever: Yahoo Mail - The Newer Crappier AOL
by KingSnarkle on 2021/10/13 17:10
Remember how horrible AOL was, and how excited we all were to leave that mess? Well let me introduce hot mess 2021 - Yahoo Mail. They are nice enough to sell your personal data to their partner sites without your permission. Go to settings. Go to Privacy Dashboard. Click the underlined words “privacy dashboard”, and you can see each individual partner, what data they are collecting, and who they’re selling it to. If you have 30 minutes to spare you can go into each partner and “opt out”. But wait…..there’s more. In the case of three of their partners, you will need to perform this action on a daily basis, because Yahoo Mail loves you so much that they’re gonna opt you right back in the following day. I’ve sent feedback regarding this. Especially since I am a resident in a State that has very specific guidelines regarding the sale of my personal data, and my ability to opt out of such practices. I don’t expect a response or resolution- that would be too much like “the right thing to do”, so I will post this as fair warning to anyone using, or looking to use this mail platform- They’re going to sell your data. They’re going to make it as difficult as possible to opt out. They’re going to make it difficult for you to even know it’s happening. I wish I could give them half of a star.
Spoofing issues on my yahoo emails
by AliceJ21 on 2021/09/05 18:12
A few months ago I started having problems with my iPhone and iPad and everything was giving me problems! Called every Technician I could use and they thought I was crazy because they said there was no problems with my devices or WiFi! I kept having issues with my emails going missing or I was receiving emails from PayPal that said I owed a payment or mentioning my card! I don’t have a card with PayPal but have account that I’m paying off with PayPal Credit! Issues constantly and money came out of my bank account from PayPal then received a package with similar items I had recently viewed from 4Patriots only not the same and no invoice and item was no good! All this to say I have been hacked from my yahoo emails because security is bad! My personal information is all over the internet now! Had to erase my phone completely last night because the problem has grown so big! Using my iPad right now hoping they don’t get in it! BEWARE!!!!! Spoofing is a horrible issue with your email accounts and can turn your life upside down it has mine! My bank is threatening to stop my account from online banking and it. Isn’t my fault! Not always on your email provider! 🙁🙁
20+ year User :(
by Me123ues on 2020/07/15 15:01
...maybe 30+ years. I’m a long-term user, short term hater. A year or two ago, after Yahoo’s biggest upgrade I could ever remember, learning to use Yahoo with all the bugs it brought was sheer agony. For years, I was able to log into our 3 email accounts ‘once’ and then switch between accounts with a keystroke - that went away. Working through the problems finally ended with losing my departed wife’s account being lost...with all it’s history that we’re memories of her. Then I entered the ‘season of constant login’ and absolutely hate how you set THAT up. I struggled with access via ANY browser but usually use Chrome. I’m still having TIME CONSUMMING problems with that - YES I HAVE YOUR APP on my iPhones and iPads! The use of the Yahoo app is a time synch and a constant source of frustration...if not un-Christian thoughts: more times as not, I don’t get the tool bar at the bottom to reply, move or delete emails and have to start a NEW thread just to reply - business associates complain a bit when I do this. The ONLY reason I’m still with Yahoo...again, the ONLY REASON is I don’t know how to switch my personal URL over to another company and also save my ‘history’ for my remaining two accounts. Does Yahoo EVER, EVER, run a new release through a ‘test group’ for feedback?

by Tomeh1 on 2019/03/09 13:57
Articles too biased. Too many from CNN &amp; 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 &amp; regulations to make autos safer, how our lower &amp; middle class are being hurt badly by illegal immigration &amp; 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’ &amp; how much this investigation is costing taxpayers &amp; how much the ‘political investigations by democrats are costing money &amp; 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 &amp; 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😡
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&#39;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&#39;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. &#34;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&#39;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&#39;t respect ours.&#34;
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.
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&#39;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.
Pay to get emails when they arrive!
by Cerealkeller on 2020/11/04 20:07
Yahoo mail basic used to be very reliable. It would notify you when you got an email and there was an inexpensive one time fee to remove ads. In the past year or more, the app only checks for mail a few times an hour and notifies you, when it checks, if you have any new mail. It’s important that I get certain emails immediately. I wear an Apple Watch for that specific purpose, well that and for text messages. Because I can’t hear or feel the phone often times when it notifies me. The point is, with the paid option, I can get my emails when they arrive! It’s ridiculous I have to pay for it though. And ads? I paid, what was intended to be a one time fee, to remove ads from the Yahoo mail app years ago, and for some reason they just started displaying ads again and there was nothing I could do about it. Am I happy with the app? Yeah, it performs extremely well, and I am generally happy with it. But the fact I am forced to pay a subscription to make it perform basic functionality is unacceptable.
Slowest email experience ever
by Spartygal22 on 2021/08/18 17:38
I downloaded this app because I kept getting notices that the preloaded mail app on my iPad would no longer work with a yahoo account. It has been an extremely frustrating experience. The app takes at least 30 seconds to load every time I open it. Then the deals for any newsletter I’m subscribed to display display at the top and it takes 15+ seconds to unfreeze before I can scroll down to read the message. When I delete a message it takes another 20+ seconds to move on to the next one. Flipping from my inbox to another folder isn’t even worth it. When composing an email, if I have to exit the app to look something up in Safari (like how to spell a word, etc.), it usually will reload when I come back and I have to go find the message in my drafts. (Even if I was only gone for less than a minute.) Every action takes forever. Also, formatting text is extremely limited. I can’t even change font sizes, indent paragraphs, nor make bullet points. The only plus I can give it is that it allows me to report messages as spam. Seriously, I had a faster experience on my PC 20 years ago when it was infected with a virus.
Horrible App - Makes You Want to Switch to Gmail
by DeeTee38 on 2020/02/28 06:23
This email app is absolutely horrible. I’ve been using it as my primary personal email address for several years and it constantly has glitches, despite numerous version updates. The very worst is when you send emails, it often sits in your outbox with an error message and you’d never find out unless you happen to check your outbox and find out it never sent. I’ve had several important emails that this happened with and the 1-3 day delay cost me thousands of dollars. Then there’s also the issue that very often when responding to an email and switching screens to another app in the middle (e.g. you’re checking something on Safari to see what to write before finishing the email), it will literally save 10 different drafts of your email after sending it that you don’t have the ability to delete, which completely clogs your inbox and prevents you from scrolling in your email history to pull up older emails in the thread. I’ve had my Yahoo email for 25 years and am about fed up with the poor quality being in 2020. Time to finally get a new email address with Gmail and short Yahoo’s stock.
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&#39;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.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!
by Uncivil high on 2021/05/21 17:04
This is app is honestly by far the worst mail app i have ever seen!! They way things are organized is just one big MESS!! Every time i go to look at my recent email it for some reason will remove the email i just opened and then it will be about a couple minutes of me refreshing the app so that it will pop up again !! Also i have no idea why i can not look at past emails that are more than a week old ??!! This app is so stupid. You touch one thing and it’ll pop up a screen where there’s more options and everything is just kind of thrown in there. It is so hard to maneuver. I can’t find my old emails i need and i absolutely hate this app!! I’m 23 and this app makes me feel like i’m 40 because of how difficult it is to use. I am currently in the process of replacing my Yahoo email with a new gmail on everything i’ve used the yahoo on because this is app is a nightmare. and I didn’t even mention all the ads you get. I don’t feel very safe knowing companies can just go through my email and send Ads based on what information i feed it. And this app doesn’t even filter out spam or virus contained emails. Please do not get this app!
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 &amp; 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.
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
Yahoo Small Business Email Disruption!
by onevoicecounts on 2019/05/15 21:06
In the 11+ years of having 4 (actually 5) small business accounts with Yahoo, I have NEVER experienced the exasperating and costly issues that have wreaked havoc on my business and communications since the migration on April 24 of 2019. It has taken 2 weeks for us to simply access our business emails. Have not spoken to anyone after multiple tries and tireless hours in hold. Microsoft and GoDaddy actually both answer their calls and solve issues. NOW, I must access my paired down (and, yes soon to be closed) Yahoo email accounts through an app on my phone. Have you heard of call centers? Staffing up to offer customer solutions? Would like to hear projected revenue loss numbers if you were shut down for 2 weeks. I’ll bet our percentages would be the same... What separates us is that I would never treat customers like this and I would answer my customer calls.
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&#39;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.
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.
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&#39;t get it deleted I will not use this app at all!
Suspicious activity
by sloppywafflex on 2021/10/30 12:10
I don&#39;t know if its just me, but this app is kind of suspicious. Never had any problems whatsoever until I downloaded this app. I started receiving a lot of phishing mail everyday for the past 2 months. And it got to the point that it just wouldn&#39;t stop. So I thought that I would be able to block or unsubscribe(even though I&#39;ve never subscribed to those emails)and to my surprise you have to pay to do that. Really made me rethink how and where these emails came from. Uninstalled the app right away after finding out that I have to pay to unsubscribe/block emails. Apparently nothing comes free these days. Oh well, there are better apps out there that offer that same kind of service but for free. The fact that I just recently scrolled through all the reviews proved my point. All those spam emails that were supposed to head to the spam did not because yahoo allowed it to bypass the spam filter. Horrible people. Edit. Havent received any spam mails since I uninstalled this app. Please I do not recommend installing this app as this app will allow spam mail to bypass the spam filter.
Fixed in record time.
by Harley-Charlie on 2021/07/21 02:13
I tried using the chat feature. It’s useless. There is no way to contact the developer so I hope this will work. Suddenly my app started freezing up and shutting down. Every time I open it, it immediately shuts down. I restarted my phone. Same issues. I went into the App Store and discovered there was an update. So I updated it. Same thing. It opens and closes immediately. I paid the extra money for the app. It’s been working great until about 1-1/2 hours ago. I hope the developers will see this and fix the problem. The mail app that comes with the phone is very insufficient when it comes to reading email. I found a phone number to contact. This was a systemwide issue for iPhones. It was fixed within a couple of hours after I contacted them. Unfortunately, it appears that Verizon has bought Yahoo.
Bucking the FLAT minimalist trend --- FINALLY
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!
Batch Deleting? And snark?
by Phoebe2008 on 2020/01/26 15:31
One of the oddest things I’ve found with Yahoo Mail on mobile devices is that if I do a search for a sender, I have no option to ‘delete all’ once they appear. I have to delete each one separately. Takes FOREVER. Another, more serious concern is the apparent lack of concern for customer satisfaction. From the reviews, I’ve seen and my own experience, the attitude of those manning the help desk is “If you don’t like it, use another app.” I’d rather work with a chat bot than be subjected to sarcastic dismissal from a tech. I’ve had Yahoo Mail since 2002; it was my first email ever, but I’ve lost the nostalgic attachment. AND, I will say that nobody is going to track my Internet actions and profit on it AND insult me. Just THINKING about upgrading to the new app and being plagued with ads only to be extorted to get rid of them irritates me. Besides the latest research shows nobody clicks on ads anymore. I’m more likely to deliberately NOT shop at a website that throws an ad in my face tbh. Yahoo...you have to be bleeding customers.
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.
UPGRADE REGRET
by overwhelmed by zombies on 2019/10/18 11:53
This is easily the most annoying mail app I have ever subscribed to...and that includes original AOL with all its instability. It seems the whole purpose of the upgrade was to be so irritating through ad persistence that paying for a reasonable mail experience seems preferable. Sponsor ads not only live a zombie life...instantly reappearing after deletion...but now Yahoo makes you go through the process of telling them why you don’t want the ad...and holds mail in suspension until you answer. Hello...the ads are annoying...yes, they make Yahoo money...we get that. Before this upgrade, we could at least block delete unwanted mail...now it’s a tog-of-war between ad bots and humans over individual emails...and the bots are winning. Before posting this, I read a number of reviews...the developer comments basically boil down to “pay or suffer”...thanks for nothing Yahoo.
Loss of an almost complete email
by Was in love on 2021/03/14 02:07
I wrote an email and was going back and forth copying pictures to send in the email. I had to abandon the email to serve my kids supper but left it open and when I came back it had saved only the guy’s email address and the Subject the content of the email was gone! It had in parentheses (null)! It was extremely frustrating since I had worked on the email for over two hours. Yes I should have pressed the X button but I always worry that that will throw it away instead of saving as a draft! Now if it can save the person receiving the email and the subject, why not content if it decides to get out of it. I did not close the program otherwise I would be solely to blame. But it was still open as well as 4-5 other programs I use frequently.
Where is Unsubscribe in the Yahoo app or account?

I do not see it (Unsubscribe)—in the icons that you can control at the bottom of your screen. When I go to customize your inbox, it’s not there either. It’s not in settings, nor notifications. When I’m on my inbox page, I tap on the purple ‘y’ in the upper left top of my inbox screen, and it takes me to my account. Settings, notifications, setting up your inbox, etc. I cannot find where I can unsubscribe right there and then. However, where I DO INDEED see where I have the option to unsubscribe,—-is in the merchant that is sending me their unwanted annoying email. At the bottom of THEIR email, it gives you the option Unsubscribe “here”. Thanks, annoying spam merchant!!….. but where is ‘unsubscribe’ in my Yahoo app? I’d rather unsubscribe directly from Yahoo! Thanks. I hope someone from Yahoo! gets back to me regarding this issue.
Decent, better alternatives
by tommtjutsu on 2021/05/20 01:34
It functions as a mail app most of the time. From time to time I will get an email but not get a notification on my phone. Other times, I will have received an email but it doesn’t show up in the app, only when I check it in a web browser, which is frustrating. The main reason it gets three stars and not four is because I constantly get a notification from the app saying “we miss you! You haven’t checked your inbox lately. See what’s new!“ There’s no way to turn that notification off and it’s extremely annoying when I check my phone thinking I got an email and I see this stupid message. It would be one thing if it happens rarely, but there have been days where it happens multiple times in the same day, even if I never actually got an email. No way to turn it off without turning off all notifications. Again, there are better alternatives to this app.
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!
Used to be ok, now has stupid notifications
by DemonicPenguin on 2021/12/30 05:50
By the time I got an iPhone and this app Yahoo! had been demoted to my secondary email account. I still used to check it daily until a few months ago when they decided it was ok to push notifications that weren’t new mail. I want to make sure all of my mail in this account is read and taken care of, so a near constant notification number on the app icon is annoying, frustrating and unavoidable. I rerouted nearly every email that came to this account to my primary mail because of this, making this obsolete. If I could delete my mail account and leave my fantasy sports account active I would. As an email service this is subpar. There are plenty other quality ones out there. Don’t choose this. Update to respond to dev response: A worthless canned response without any regard for what I actually wrote. I’m done. I’m done with Yahoo! I’m well aware of the notifications options, but more specifically the notifications you force on me without the ability to deactivate them.
Very Good
by If you aint 1st your last on 2020/07/05 20:29
I have 8 different email addresses coming in to this client along with my sports and news feeds, it’s very customizable and still streamlined for ease of use. I only use my iPad and iPhone email clients for my iCloud account and it just keeps everything in it&#39;s place. Yahoo’s main app is very convenient and allows me to hit the ground running with all of my calendars and the news and sports that interests me and not what something thinks that I’m interested in. I just love, to have the ability of keeping all my different email signature&#39;s separate. I haven’t seen or had the need to upgrade to the pro version of the client, but it is an option for zero adds. Honestly I don’t even notice them anymore. Try it out for free, or don’t I just know that it&#39;s a work horse and it more than get the job done!
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&#39;ve been asked to rate it at least once every two days. If you don&#39;t like your apps to bug you, don&#39;t use this app. Update: As if this app wasn&#39;t annoying enough, it now puts ads right in the middle of your email list, forcing you to have to click the &#34;X&#34; 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&#39;ll never click your ad EVER.
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!
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.
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.
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.
App won’t even open
by Doc814 on 2020/07/16 06:31
Just downloaded this app onto my new iPhone, but it won’t even open! All I get is a message that, “Safari cannot open the page because it could not establish a secure connection to the page.” Tried opening Yahoo Mail in Yahoo. Still nothing; just sits. Pretty useless. Update: App still won’t open on mobile device. Unable to make yahoo mail the default E-Mail on my phone. Sometimes, if I keep trying to open the app long enough, I can get to the first sign-on screen (why can’t the name and password be on ONE page?) for my user name. Click continue, and it stops again. Keep at it long enough, and I might even get to enter my password. That’s as far as it goes. If I enter my password, I immediately receive a “timed-out” message. Sadly, the exact same thing is now happening on my desktop. Took over 2 hours just to sign into my mail account. Even worse, I received a response from the developer requesting additional info, but they didn’t leave a way to contact them.
