This app doesn’t work at all. I can’t sign into my already existing account. I can’t use any yahoo app or yahoo account on my iOS. If I could I’d give it a negative score. Save yourself time and get a google account or something else because Yahoo doesn’t work anymore.

No NFL video tab
by Jtpalermo on 2020/09/22 16:24
I was so excited when I received an email from Yahoo that I could now watch NFL games with Yahoo mail. Excitement now gone replaced with frustration. I downloaded the new mail app but no video tab and no option to make it show. iPad 7 generation, iOS up to date. Ready to throw in towel. From the reviews it appears I’m not alone with this problem. Please do something. I live in Florida and miss my Buffalo Bills games. I was try to use the app on an iPad. The app only works on the iPhone. On the iPhone I was presented with a video update on the NFL teams which I couldn’t make go away. I finally gave up after an hour of frustration and deleted the app.
Yahoo mail
by annot be true on 2020/09/22 12:48
The old regular email service was much easier to work with. Would love to not have Yahoo Mail anymore When an email appears on the screen and I hit delete, the email stays on the screen. When using the old method, if you hit trash, the email disappeared from the screen. Just easier to follow with the older method.

With every update, there are fewer functions that work. Emails take forever to pop up after a notification. Search NEVER works!!! I’m tired of seeing Oops! Now, instead of contacting support I have to write a review because the support server cannot be contacted.
Search feature doesn’t work
by Dinosaur2038 on 2020/09/21 15:12
I have no complaints about the app except that the search option has stopped working probably 95% of the time. I end up just going to the website when I need to locate an email, which pretty much defeats the purpose of an app.
Pretty good with some simple problems
by K-1 digs on 2020/09/21 14:46
I generally enjoy this app until I want to do something simple like Copy an email address... the copy function AND undo function are unavailable in the app. You’d think in writing an email you would have reasons to want to copy someone’s email to put somewhere else, that’s pretty straightforward. But sometimes I can’t even read the entire email address something was sent from, let alone make use of it. Other than those simple issues, it works great, but those functions are pretty important in email land...
New yahoo mail

Update messed up look
by johntaz11 on 2020/09/21 00:47
I do not care for this latest change to the app, I liked the way it was laid out and the ease of moving emails to various folders, the new layout makes for more work on my part and I don’t need more of that. Please at least allow me to change to the previous layout.

I stopped using yahoo mail years ago because of its failure to send email or receive them. I just recently back to yahoo because they told me it was way better and faster not true. I’ve spent the last hour trying to email my accountant receipts and she’s not getting them🤬. So I deleted the app and now it’s taking forever to reinstall it, I hope you get the bugs worked out because I don’t have problem going back to (my mail) app we’ll see if yahoo still acting bad

Better way to delete old messages
by robnick84 on 2020/09/20 16:19
Wish it was a way to delete multiple emails without clicking buttons for each week. I have too many back up to delete that way
Very frustrating
by DLHSTMPR on 2020/09/20 16:06
I dislike this app so much that I am considering getting rid of the Yahoo email address that I have had for 15+ years and switching to Gmail. It’s bad enough that you can’t get rid of the ads at the top of every folder (Inbox,Trash, etc.) in the free app, ads have started showing up in the body of my opened messages! “Here are some things you might be interested in based on this email.” I would’ve considered paying for the pro app, but it is a monthly/yearly fee instead of a one-time purchase. I do not find the rest of the app to be very user friendly, either. The included email app on my iPhone recognizes which folder to file frequently received emails. This app makes me scroll through my folders each and every time I want to file an email. The layout of the app is also very “busy” on the eyes and not very straightforward. I want just a simple, clean, and easy (& free!) app to read my emails. I was notified by Yahoo that they could no longer assure the security of “third party” email apps. This is code for Yahoo no longer supporting/servicing Apple email apps. Very frustrating. Bottom line, I’m being forced to switch to a lesser product. I will have to decide whether or not to keep my Yahoo email address.
Don’t like the look

If you value your privacy, stay away (if that’s even possible)
by Jellyspotter on 2020/09/20 07:41
I’m surprised they haven’t asked me for a copy of my apartment lease to verify my identity. The amount of information they request and require is absurd. This is the least amount of privacy I’ve ever seen on an email service. Doesn’t help that my information to my email was leaked on the deep web; only finding out years later from my credit report. Oh and the funny thing is, they lock you in to giving them all your information. You need a phone number, a back up email, address, fulll name. All major companies are like this today, but at least when I go to my privacy dashboard in anything else it actually works. Because theirs does not and it has been. Broken. For 24 hours. If it wasn’t for my friends insisting on the fantasy app for football, I’d b done with yahoo.

Ads intrusive to the experience.
by MusicLver23 on 2020/09/20 05:01
With the latest update, ads now take up the entire top half the the screen viewing an email. I understand needing to run ads for a free products but not when it completely ruins the UI. It’s like they’re determined to drive the Yahoo brand down to the gutter.
Preview
by reviewer92626 on 2020/09/20 02:31

I know they have free pickup... that’s what the email is supposed to be about. Just show me the email.

Not able to view trash file
by sierra_99576 on 2020/09/19 05:58
I have this yahoo email for mainly spam from other websites ive ordered from and often delete the “deals of the day” when I’m at work (regularly check email). And later have wanted to look up the website (with any deals it might have since I don’t really look into them because I get so many). But on the app it does not show the trash like it does on the desk top. So on my iPhone, go into the safari app to be able to look into the trash file. Could not find it on the app at all to give me that option. Thanks for the ted talk

Free NFL Football
by spikeo2 on 2020/09/18 23:09
The Yahoo Mail app will not let me access the videos tab in order to watch NFL games. There is no videos tab on my app and when I click on that tab in a promotional email I was sent it goes to my app but does not bring up a videos tab or tell me what steps I need to take to find it. I think the Yahoo promotional email was intended to get you to sign up for the Yahoo app just so that they could access your personal data and habits and sell it to others. I think this is a scam! Prove me wrong!

Besides that problem, I no longer have access to my other folders including saved emails, trash and spam. I’ve written yahoo about my concerns and isdues, but the only response I get from yahoo is, thanks for responding.
Emails from Yahoo “You haven’t upgraded”
by frightbox on 2020/09/18 17:18
Why yes I have. Yet, you keep sending me emails to remind me to get the Yahoo App. And constantly asking me to upgrade so that I can go ad free. The ads are annoying enough but wouldn’t bother me but for the constant interruptions to remind me that I can go ad free by paying a ransom to yahoo. You’re like the mafia offering me protection for a monthly fee from you. Could you at least stop interrupting me with a pop up to tell me that I can go ad free? Trust me, I already know and don’t care.
Disruptive with zero way to customize views
by Arodriguez4983 on 2020/09/18 12:52
Don’t understand why yahoo decided that I should have 14 coupons and deals at the top of every email without letting the user decide if they want that to be featured. Or that I need a link to visit the site of the sender. I have to scroll ten feet before I even see the email. Or the constant notifications From the stupid extras like video and groceries that I can’t se to turn off. You need to allow people to change these disruptive settings. The amount of spam that comes through is ridiculous but my real emails make it spam folder instead. Stop doing the so much with the interface. People just wanna check and send emails without being annoyed by these features.

My account has changed hands so many times and has been messed up so often, never because of anything but corporate avarice!! If I could figure out a way to leave with my email address that I have had since email began in the early days, I would take it and run!!! No one at this place cares! My mail gets misdirected to undisclosed places, and just when I think I can breathe they change it again. That’s what wanting your friends to find you means!! The “bird” goes to att and yahoo!!
Frustrating

Move Message to Folder
by Alisha543 on 2020/09/15 23:00
The one improvement I would make to this app is, similar to the Apple email application, add the “move item to suggested folder” option. Currently, when you go to move an email in the Yahoo app you have to scroll down to the folder and select it. For someone like myself who has many emails that I keep organized in different folders, it becomes very tedious to constantly scroll and search for the folder. The Apple mail application starts to learn which emails typically go and which folders and makes a suggestion, which saves me time and effort when cleaning up my inbox.

Won’t delete mail and false notifications
by DGavinD42069 on 2020/09/15 15:45
For a while now the app will claim I have emails (which I do) and it’ll take hours for the emails to pop up on the app but the notification numbers keep racking up on the icon, on top of that when it will load I’ll go to delete maybe 5 emails at a time and when I leave the app the notifications will go from 5 to 4 so I’ll have to go delete 4 out of the 5 emails I’ve already deleted. It’s highly annoying considering I do not like having my icons full of notifications. Highly considering getting rid of yahoo and going to gmail.

Yahoo Mail Pro
by pdaniel24 on 2020/09/14 21:07
Paying $9.99 per year does not prevent ads from flooding the top of your email inbox along with the app being extremely slow.
Forces to Subscribe
by Dwershi0525 on 2020/09/14 18:44
The latest update is basically forcing you to subscribe so that you do not have to see the ads, which now take up all the space on your In Box. It’s ridiculous and obnoxious. EVERY TIME I open the app, I am forced to dislike the ad so I can read my emails. I’ve been a loyal Yahoo user for more than 10 years and I’m really not happy with this new update.

Why have you changed the app? Now, when you exit out of the app, the extended contacts list disappears. Only a shortened list of a few contacts appears.I have to delete the app and reinstall the app every time I want to check my contacts list. Update: I have since deleted the app. I was previously getting about 10 spam emails per day. Some of them even came to my inbox. After I deleted the app, I haven’t gotten ANY spam emails. I think the app is corrupt. I will never use Yahoo Mail App again.

by RavnBee on 2020/09/14 00:03
Wow. I can’t believe that an email app now has advertisements. It was bearable when it was at the top. Didn’t like it, but whatever. Now it’s in between emails & they’re super large. Why??? I’m trying to check my emails, and I don’t want to be bombarded with stupid ads. Tho Pro is only 99¢/month... I’m still not paying for it. Makes me want to delete my yahoo email, however, kind of stuck with it because it’s connected to other accounts. If this keeps persisting, I will cancel my yahoo account, and stick with some other email provider. Bottom line... emails should NOT be a place to randomly shove advertisements in your face. It’s not Facebook or any other social media platform of that nature. Again, personally wouldn’t complain much if the ads were at the top.
Can’t delete large amount of messages
by Mo-Vella on 2020/09/13 22:14
I’ve had this email for as long as I can remember. I get over 200 emails a day. I currently have over 150k emails and would love to be able to delete more than 50 at a time. It’s impossible. And It doesn’t show all my days emails. Sometimes I have to search for one I’m expecting to find it.
Yahoo missing from home page

Almost unusable
by JD in SD on 2020/09/13 21:44
The latest update has made this app almost unusable. The interface is completely unresponsive most of the time
Video tab is missing
by MacP10002 on 2020/09/13 19:47
I downloaded the app on my iPad and the video tab is missing so I’m not able to watch nfl games....
Spam and hacks!
by Don't get Door Dash on 2020/09/13 19:17
Not sure why I haven’t deactivated my account I am constantly getting spam even when I mark emails as spam and I’ve been hacked countless times! Don’t use Yahoo!
Advertizment boxes are the worst
by RNRhdz91011 on 2020/09/13 18:19
Yahoo mail gives enough ads all over the place and now they are smack in the middle of my in box. Seriously considering deleting this account that ive had for over 20 years!
Your pushing me away
by 12ushii on 2020/09/13 17:04
If you use my mail alert to continue to advertise for the NFL I will end my use of the service. I don’t like democrats all week, sure as Hell don’t wanna listen to em on a Sunday. Knock it off or I’m out of here.
Best Mail App, for the Mail I can see!
by nateeter on 2020/09/13 16:27
I like this so much better than apple’s mail app. However, the ads have become ridiculously large, so much so that I can only see two emails on my phone screen with the ad taking up the majority space. I understand ads are how you keep the app free for those who aren’t willing to pay a monthly “bill” to have email, but they’ve become such a frustrating distraction that I’m now trying other email apps. Honestly, if I could pay a one time, reasonable fee, this newest ploy of yours likely would have worked, but even at only $.99 per month, I’m not paying you monthly to not annoy me. There are apps with better business models than that.
The longer they “update” the worse it gets.
by Ktapex on 2020/09/13 15:36
No way to block “domains”, no way to limit/remove “previous deals” on top of the received emails. I wonder why I still insist on using yahoo mail.
I’ve had Yahoo Mail since 1997
by Peelage on 2020/06/23 20:33
I adopted to this platform early on. I’ve known yahoo longer than I’ve know most of my friends. Yahoo and I have seen a rollercoaster of emotions. From data breaches to flat out angst over sending everyone in my contacts list magic weight loss berries spam. That said, this app has grown up into a secure, fierce email. I have the ad free version so it’s super quick and worth the cheap price. This app I’ve deleted so many times for the stock Apple Mail App, but I keep on coming back to Yahoo. It’s quick and probably my most used application on my phone and iPad by far. These 5 stars are earned for the loyalty of it all. Keep the updates coming, I look forward to all of the improvements. If you’d like to jump on project catalyst and make a Mac app, that’d be sweet! Also, I’d like more customizations and colors in settings, but I’m sure they are coming. Feel free to hire me on to your team to make this app a perfect 10.
No Setting For Notification Sounds
by Daman M on 2018/06/30 15:22
Deleted app finally. I linked yahoo mail through gmail. I highly recommend. More flaws to report with yahoo app. I am using an iPhone X. Mail would disappear from the inbox if I clicked on a new mail notification. Would take hours to appear back. If I used the search to find an old email it would find the email and when I click on it the email it would just load and load an nothing would appear. I finally had to forward the email to gmail so I could view it. Also why should one have to pay to remove annoying ads which aren’t even applicable to what I am interested in. Worst app ever. Minus one star for not being able to change sounds for incoming & outgoing mail. If you have an iPhone you are stuck with the generic default notification and can’t change it at all in the settings of the app or in the settings for the iPhone. Second minus star that they show irrelevant ads in the top of the inbox. I don’t want to pay a dollar a month to get rid of it. If you want people to use your app rather than the default mail setting in the iPhone then get rid of that like gmail and outlook have in their free versions. Update to the developer’s reply. That is untrue. Both the Outlook and Google mail apps. let you change sound notifications within the “settings” of the widget themselves and not in the actual Apple settings.
I have Yahoo! basic were I don’t pay anything for it
by MABasenjis on 2019/07/09 13:42
The only thing I don’t like about this and the reason I give it only two stars is not only do I get advertisements at the top of my email inbox but sometimes I get spam emails in my inbox instead of going into my spam folder and when I ask Yahoo! about this they tell me to upgrade to where I have to pay $.99 so I won’t get those spam emails or the ads up at the top of my email inbox that’s another annoying thing if it’s free then you shouldn’t have to pay anything to have the ad removed if you say you just like the ad you shouldn’t have to pay anything for an email service unless it’s a business account and you have a lot of other features and with me I just go ahead and send emails every once in a while and this is the same account as I’ve had for about five or six years since I opened my email address account and that’s my opinion of Yahoo! basic if I don’t want the ad they say it’s called the Yahoo! pro program and I don’t want to pay that because when I signed up for Yahoo! basic I was looking for a free and non- ad based email and that’s what Yahoo! was I know they have do you have to use Yahoo! pro if you don’t want the advertisements at the top why should you have to pay if it’s a free service for no advertisements why is it deleting enough
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!
Doesn't Allow Scrolling
by jetnova16 on 2019/03/06 19:34
When you try to advance to new emails further down the scrolling section of emails in the Inbox, Spam folders as well as your own created folders the app automatically scrolls up enlarging the scroll bar as it advances back up on its own making it 100% impossible to scroll down to any and all emails that are off the screen and thus further down. The only way to get to them is to go to Full Screen View on one email and using the arrows to advance down to earlier previous emails. Because of this it makes this app 100% impossible to use and thus really not worth any Stars whatsoever. Especially since this problem has been going on for months (since well into 2018) and all Feedback complaining about it has been ignored and it's only gotten worse with each update to this app. It used to only effect the Spam folder, then it also affected Created Folders and the Archives folder and most recently it's been effecting the Inbox as well. Thus with each time the problem has made the Yahoo Email App 100% impossible to use and requiring going to Safari or a Computer to get it to actually work right. With Yahoo also ignoring Feedback on this problem for months and not fixing it in any update this app is 100% NOT WORTH IT!
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?
Absolutely WOULD NOT recommend till bug is fixed!!
by GOVS Fan on 2019/05/04 14:04
My PROBLEM/COMPLIANT is Yahoo continues to automatically add contacts to my contact list, even from all my Spam mail folder, without me telling it to. NOT a GOOD THING Yahoo. See previous review info below with details about what is going on. "Yahoo/App allows very little user control, yet their security seems to be very suspect. For example, every address, even from Spam emails, is added to your contacts list. Yahoo should NEVER be taking it on themselves to decide who I want in my contact list. I should have control of who I want added to my contacts, not the other way around. Certainly not Spam addresses! And once they are added, Yahoo makes sure you cannot batch delete them. (Here's an example of how many unwanted contacts are added in a short period of time): I had just cleaned out my contacts about a week ago. Today I had to go in and individually delete another almost 80 unwanted addresses. Should NEVER have happen in the first place Yahoo!!! Who wants Spam addresses automatically added to your contacts list? And if you want help, have a suggestion, or need to write Yahoo for assistance, there is never any help or response. They make sure their privacy is intact, they just don't respect ours."
It gets email!
by Tmprmntl13 on 2018/02/17 04:54
Outside of retrieving email, this app is not very user friendly. The Apple email app, which is already present and cannot be deleted, is equally as good, if not better. Or there are other apps like gmail that are cleaner and easier to use, even with yahoo accounts. After the initial review (above), Yahoo contacted me to ask me to tell them how to make their product better. I will try to put this into perspective. The Yahoo app is like a stiff version of Apple mail. Things are placed awkwardly and do not function smoothly or easily. And when I set up an account, my first attempt didn't go as I wanted it to. So I set up a second, duplicate account, thinking I could delete the first. But the app will only allow me to delete the correct account. The incorrect one does not show under Manage Accounts. The only way I can see to eliminate it is to kill the app and start over. As stated previously, my review is that until Yahoo does their own homework, there are better apps to handle your email. I recommend trying a side-by-side comparison with this app, the Apple app and the Gmail app. Then you can make up your own mind. I would lay odds that the Yahoo app is your first choice...to delete.
Great except for the “Deals in this Email” that dramatically slow you down
by jsmithdmi on 2019/11/23 14:01
I’ve used the iPhone Mail app well...since I’ve had my first iPhone. I’ve also always had a yahoo email address, and had seen they completely overhauled the yahoo app a little while back. I tried it and it was fantastic!! It made moving through all the mail (including junk mail) so much easier and quicker by simply swiping from email to email! However then the “deals in this email” started popping up and that wouldn’t clear the “unread” status. I tried emailing support to ask if there was a way to disable the deals component as it was quite annoying to have to back out of the message and go back in to “clear”and was given a canned response “we can’t respond to all emails so try our support page/FAQ”.....well, I also don’t have to use your app and can go back to my mail app. Then an update came out and that was gone...but then it’s back. Long story short, the app is good and user friendly...except for the pain in the behind deals from this email stuff, which if it stays will likey push me back to my native email app.
You know about spam reaching inbox for months
by hjohnnym on 2018/05/22 06:44
But yahoo keeps sending to my inbox.. Tiffany and Co, Louis Vuitton are your favorite spammers. Why do I say that? They probably pay you to let them bypass the spam filter. You let them spam multiple yahoo accounts and from .eu email addresses, that means Europe. Now before you say, we will fix it, I’ve read reviews complaining of the same thing from Late 2017 and into January and February 2018. It’s May 2018. You refuse to do anything about it. Yahoo and Oath is a crap company. I’ve complained on Oaths Facebook messages and posts. You don’t even read them. Your a corrupt company that spams its members for profit. I don’t have this problem with gmail and I recommend gmail to anyone reading these reviews. You refuse to do anything about putting the spam in the spam folder( your not smart enough to do this) The spammers are smarter than your corrupt mail and spam teams. You like spam, you let them spam hundreds of millions of users, they complain, you do nothing. Fix your bad spam filter today. Oath is a spam company. You get rich off it, that’s the only reason for derelict of duty. 5 months ago someone complained here on these reviews. You haven’t and won’t fix it because they pay you to bypass the spam filter.
Not so good anymore
by upsetandforgotten on 2018/10/24 00:30
I started using Yahoo email in 2004 and liked it enough to stick with it even in the advent of gmail, hotmail, etc. But I made a major mistake: I linked some accounts. It was great for a while, with the aliases available to one click to another of my several accounts, each with their own folders. But now I can’t unlink the accounts or be rid of the useless aliases, all the accounts have similar folders AND for some reason 2 accounts must have the same password. I spent $10 and 5 hours on the phone with “help”, working with 4 different people and accomplished nothing. Now I moved 2 of the accounts to gmail. $10 would have been a bargain for the amount of time spent with me if they could help, but they could not. At times I broke out in a sweat as it seemed as if folders and then even accounts with folders of important files from years ago disappeared, but then they magically appeared again later and my wet body relaxed a bit. AND I can only have 2 accounts in Firefox, instead of the 4 accounts that I used to have in Firefox. What a shame. If I could figure out how to easily move folders and their contents to gmail I would, even though I much prefer Yahoo when it worked.
Horrible
by UghNowWhat on 2018/02/08 17:03
Should be ZERO stars, but not allowed. When you tap a link in an email it doesn’t open your web browser, it opens a yahoo browser. It’s a way for yahoo to not only track which sites you connect to (always did that), now their browser lets them see what you look at, what you buy, and your personal information. If I can’t find a way to disable their ‘fake’ browser soon will delete this app for sure. ****I KNOW that I can tap the compass icon to get to my web browser, but that’s an unnecessary step I shouldn’t have to take. If yahoo hadn’t added the extra step I wouldn’t need to complain. And please no more claiming that yahoo didn’t do it to track my online browsing!!!**** Also if you tap on an email to flag it, it often disappears, then you have to go to the flagged (now called starred) emails and hope it’s there. It also happens when you try to open an email to read it, sometimes it will disappear too. Then you have to go into another folder and come back and hope that the email has reappeared. And finally the yahoo email app frequently does not send a failure to deliver message when emails don’t go through, so I had no way of knowing how many people weren’t getting my email!!!
My honest review
by Dasleeper on 2017/11/07 07:26
Yahoo Mail was my first ever email address when this whole internet thing took off. I eventually found out that I was going to need a different, or another email address because this Yahoo address was filling up fast with garage mail, or spam and my important emails were getting lost in all the spam. This was years ago, whenever all this started out and I now have 4 email addresses. I use each email address for a specific purpose, but I still use my Yahoo mail for getting information from the net knowing that whoever I’m getting the information from is going to sell my email address to a spammer, that’s why they’re is nearly 10,000 emails in my inbox and I have to delete another nearly 2000 garbage emails in my Spam Folder every week. It seems like the more I Unsubscribe to many of the emails the more I get. It seems like Yahoo is nothing more than a Spam destination, but now some of my other email addresses are more spam lately. Although you could say I’m not exactly happy with Yahoo mail, I very much like Yahoo Financial & Yahoo News. It keeps me updated on the things that I’m interested in...
Notifications fixed in latest update
by Cori C. on 2018/06/25 19:55
Update: 4.5 stars The notifications finally got fixed for me with the latest update, and the badge on the app now finally shows the correct number as well. My only complaint now is the ads that show up in the list of emails that you have to scroll through. I think that the ad at the top of the list is enough. Previous review: This app has become nearly useless to me because it doesn’t show me incoming emails in notifications. At first just the badge notification (the number on the app) stopped working and showed either nothing or the number of new emails since I had last opened the app (which wasn’t always accurate), but now it shows no badge and it also doesn’t send push notifications when new emails come in. I have tried re-downloading the app numerous times (which is how it got messed up in the first place, I re-downloaded the app to free up space), and no luck. If this doesn’t get resolved, I’m gonna find a new mail app.
Yet another improved version that is not an improvement
by KaolinKid on 2018/01/24 11:47
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!!! Where is the viewing sort email by sender function? I use that to delete emails by sender and it is so much easier to clear the inbox that way. Swiping to delete a couple of emails is OK but when you have hundreds or thousands of emails to delete swiping or touching each one is not a desirable option. Before the change, I could sort by sender and highlight one email, hold the shift key click on an email way down the list which highlighted all other emails in between, hit delete and in a couple of key strokes I have deleted a hundred emails. Why take that ability away? That has been one of the major problems with gmail, you cannot sort by sender, which made yahoo mail more user friendly thus more desirable than gmail. Developers pat themselves on the back for giving users the ability to use emojis or gifs on a grand scale but take away the basic functions we use more. If a user is not interested in emojis or gifs then you have not improved anything with new and so-called improved versions you have just create a great deal of frustration and animosity for you product.
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.
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'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.
What a waste
by Ujstme on 2017/11/05 10:17
What kind of idiot would create an app that when you click a link opens a separate page that is ONLY linked to mail instead of going to internet web page, god forbid you need to go back the email to get additional info. Time to start over. Yes you can still go to web page (clicking again) but when you go back to email you now have to say you’re done on that extra page. Now on to deleting multiple emails at once.... select more than the page you can see and the fun begins. First off the display to the right starts scrolling for every item you select and when you hit delete you are now some where towards the bottom of all your emails and not where you left off. Time to scroll back to the top... And god forbid you try to use the old tried and trusted outlook... your deleted emails suddenly re appear as if you never looked at them. If only I knew then what I know now. I would have gone a different way for sure..
Frustrating
by Soniaylenin on 2018/01/23 03:09
I’m adding more stars because three days later I’m finally able to use my second email. However I still can’t delete it if I wanted to. So I finally tried the app. I’ve been using my iPhone mail app for years. But I am so frustrated with the yahoo app right now. I added my account and everything was fine but then I added a second yahoo email, that one doesn’t show the key next to it like my primary email does. Well the second one never finished loading and I can’t do anything with it. I added the second one again a different way and that time it showed the key next to it and download fully. The frustrating part is that I can’t delete the one without the key next to it. It is just sitting there doing nothing. I tried deleting the other ones and basically leaving the app with no open accounts, added the main one again and it comes back with it. I tried deleting the app and downloading it again and it is still there. If I can't get it deleted I will not use this app at all!
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.
Bucking the FLAT minimalist trend --- FINALLY
by webmonkeymon on 2019/03/20 03:17
Yahoo! To Yahoo for not giving up on usability. Now when I view email I get a company logo or Facebook icons. And the yahoo mystical logo on the right. Mammals reintroduced color vision and two eyes I front are for better depth perception, why are designs today reverting? Well with exception for f yahoo... IMHO Apples interface is about money not use ability. They are so international that the make their navigation easy to translate internationally to save money. So instead of add, you get + or instead of menu you get a triple hyphen. IMHO Steve jobs was a control freak money mongrel more than he was a visual artist. He dressed colorless and flay to because he was colorless. Pixar made him rich and they kicked him out of their creative process. See creativity Inc Colorful is useful. Thanks yahoo for helping me see quickly the story of my email and leading the way past apple arrogance. There is hope, YAHOO!
HORRIBLE email app
by Nygiant75 on 2019/10/21 22:45
I have never had problems with yahoo email until recently. Maybe 2 months ago it started. Have an iPhone Xr with iOS 13.1.3. App continuously crashes while viewing emails and even when typing one. Just shuts down and my phone goes back to the home screen. The OTHER BIG ISSUE? CANNOT dictate emails on yahoo app. Meaning, hit microphone button and speak what you want email to say. You do it and it turns off within 1.5 seconds. You get MAYBE 3 words out and the mic cuts off and the cursor goes to the front of the sentence. Is it a phone issue you ask? NO! Speaking text works on every other app or program on my phone without doing this. The workaround? Use the built in email app on the iPhone and link my yahoo account. Not good because NO OPTION TO PUSH NOTIFICATIONS. Have to manually check email about 20 times a day in order to get emails in a timely fashion. I’m am so mad about this. Been a yahoo email user since early 2000!!! NO WAY I’m the only one with this issue. Yahoo.....you aren’t aware of this? FIX IT PLEASE!!!! I’ve deleted and reinstalled app multiple times and it doesn’t fix it.
Why did you change the order of e-mails after deletion???
by Greg Da Man on 2018/02/11 18:39
For some reason they switched the order of viewing for your e-mails. I like to view my oldest unread e-mail message first and work my way up. It used to be that the next newest e-mail would appear after you deleted the e-mail that you were looking at. Now it sends you to the older e-mail instead of the newer e-mail making you swipe right to go to your next e-mail. This is counterintuitive and annoying! I will go back to using the E-mail app built in to iOS until this problem is fixed. Sorry Yahoo… The resolution of text and images is deformed and hard to read usually. You're still better off using the built in E-Mail app on the bottom of the home screen, but this Yahoo Mail app is improving continuously. Maybe Yahoo will improve the tiny display format that usually makes it hard to read your e-mails in the next update. I know they can do better.
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.
Not what it used to be
by 12345Marijke on 2020/01/22 18:13
I have used the Yahoo Mail App up until two months ago and never had a problem with it. I loved it and rated accordingly. With one of the more recent updates on my iPhone/iPad I wasn’t able to use dictation on my yahoo email. I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it and after two months it started working again. Now I am having issues with not being able to send emails for 2-3 days at a time. Yahoo puts the email into my drafts but will not send because it says it looks like spam. There are no links attached and I rewrite and simplify to no avail. I have tried to contact Yahoo but I am getting nowhere. It’s to the point that I am thinking of getting a different mail carrier. Is there anything you can do to help me out? I really don’t want to get rid of yahoo after all this.
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!
Yahoo
by Tomeh1 on 2019/03/09 13:57
Articles too biased. Too many from CNN & MSNBC, both of whom hate Trump and do not write fair stories or cover many important issues, such as good news of the employment figures, how minorities are doing better than any time in history, how so many more are killed in auto accidents than by guns, even though the Fed Govt has spent years of money & regulations to make autos safer, how our lower & middle class are being hurt badly by illegal immigration & everyone’s safety is at risk from unknown flooding over the boarders. How none of the incitement’s have anything to do with ‘Russian Collusion’ & how much this investigation is costing taxpayers & how much the ‘political investigations by democrats are costing money & time from business that needs conducting. There is so much more to be covered but all you want to do is focus on anything that might hurt the president & consequently are hurting the entire USA. As far as the operation of the Yahoo site, it’s slow, doesn’t respond many times and I have to open the page 2 or 3 times. It just doesn’t compare to gmail. Tom😡
Stop Asking me to Rate It
by Volleyshots on 2018/03/13 16:33
I was forced to switch to this app a few months months back when Yahoo decided not to play nice with Apple Mail. I switched after being asked for my Yahoo password literally twenty times a day. The app is functional and I have no real complaints about that, but having to extort your clients into using it is a pretty bad business model. Now I get asked to rate the app every single morning, so here ya go. Update: Since I posted this a few weeks back I've been asked to rate it at least once every two days. If you don't like your apps to bug you, don't use this app. Update: As if this app wasn't annoying enough, it now puts ads right in the middle of your email list, forcing you to have to click the "X" to get rid of it. Once you do that, it asks you a multiple choice question about why you wanted to get rid of it... Seriously guys, I want to get rid of it because it is an annoying ad that you put right in the middle of my emails. What other reason would there be...? For advertisers buying space here, just realize that I'll never click your ad EVER.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Buggy for years
by catherineph on 2019/11/07 00:12
Been using this app for years and I’ve had the same problem for a couple now. I have 2 yahoo accounts with account key enabled. For some reason, each account shows up TWICE on the menu—once indicating account key is enabled, the other without—for both accounts. It’s a total hassle to remove. Last time I had to disable account key for each account, sign out, and enable it again, so right now I’m just leaving it as is. The problem is that I get notified TWICE when an email comes in. In addition, though one account shows up twice, the other account will not updated when emails are read, deleted, etc. In other words, even if I open an email or delete it, it will still show up in the “other” account as unread. Sometimes, it will fix itself after waiting a while, sometimes it won’t. Again, I’ve had this problem for so long that I don’t remember ever using this app without that issue. Can’t believe it still hasn’t been fixed.
Help me see people emails among the tsunami of sales emails!
by Debi1226 on 2018/11/29 11:53
Can you help me prioritize/ separate emails from people and minimize emails from companies advertising sales? I unsubscribe to many, but it is only a temporary relief. I do not want to unsubscribe to all stores as they’re helpful at times. Email lists get bought and I continue to have more solicitations than I could ever care for. The downfall: I miss important personal emails among all the solicitation emails. Is it possible to create a sorting mechanism that I can turn on/off at will? Thinking you need to expand capabilities currently available. Your system has a too simplified view of sorting as excel format. By dates, when you can switch views at the top of the column: A>Z, Z>A, people> organizations? How about this: by Subject line: no solicitation indicated>sales: stores, fundraising, political messages indicated in subject or message??? High Priority (from contact list?) > low priority ( add a mechanism for me to indicate level of priority?)
So annoying and gets more glitches with each update
by BexAnders on 2018/02/15 04:38
I only downloaded this app because I was annoyed with the constant notifications from yahoo that using a third party email app wasn't secure. Unfortunately, I'm even more annoyed now. This app is so frustrating. From incorrect notifications of emails to the useless archive button I constantly hit and have to undo, I really hate using it. Oh, and for some idiotic reason, it sends reply emails from a different address than the one the email came in to. Update...for months it shows an email and once it's opened, the email disappears. I have to switch accounts and switch back to make it reappear. It freezes all the time and the stupid, slow loading ads at the top of the email list are always getting in the way of opening actual mail. Further, with the latest update, I no longer get images in emails. At all. Nor the option to load images that most other providers have. If I didn't have this account for 20 years, I'd get rid of yahoo entirely. If I could give 0 stars, I would.
Horribly disappointed
by Skillyfoy on 2018/08/11 05:08
Why in the world does this app have ads? This is an email app, from one of the largest search engines in the world. You'd think they'd be able to give us at least one basic product without having advertisements! Way to go Google, Microsoft, and Apple, you win the email app game. Yahoo: get your stuff together. I'm disappointed. To be honest, I would give this negative stars because their competition is delivering basically the same product for free. As far as functionality, it's an email app. It sends and receives email just like it's supposed to. Sweet. But the experience is horrible because anytime I click on the first email in my list, an ad pops up and I click on that instead, on accident. That is so annoying. Sooooooooooo annoying. Developers, please take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself if you would even use this app yourself. The only reason I have it is because Yahoo doesn't seem to play well with Apple's native email app. So basically I'm being coerced into this poor experience. Booooooo. Not cool Yahoo, not cool.
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'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'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's a work horse and it more than get the job done!
Could be better...
by SewSweet on 2018/03/15 15:21
The app works just fine and I’ve had no problems with it’s operation. However, there are a couple of things that don’t sit well with me. First, I like using the Apple mail app because I can see all of my email accounts in one view (All inboxes) if I choose too! Not the case with the Yahoo Mail app. Secondly, I don’t like the feeling of being forced to use an app...what I mean is since I’ve added the Yahoo mail app, my Apple mail app is not syncing properly as it had prior too installing Yahoo. The only time it syncs is when I go into the Yahoo app first. I’ve removed my Yahoo email account from my Apple mail to try and reset it and we’ll see if that helps. If I continue to have problems, I may be forced to get a new main email account which is sad because I’ve had this Yahoo email for many, many years! I love the progression of new technology...but don’t just force us to change, give us better options!
Best email app
by Letgo Kate on 2018/11/08 00:02
Wherever I am, whatever device I’m on-even away I can access my emails. Computer device crashes no worry just access yahoo from somewhere else and I never miss a beat. It gives me headlines on my devices and an option to read, delete, even mark as read but keep. Emails I keep for easy access to sites, sentimental reason or because it holds info I need to save, are kept safe. There is never a worry that if a device crashes or simply running slow, my “must keep emails” are safe and will not be lost. On top of everything yahoo allows you to keep an insane number of emails. I can get up to 50+ a day and don’t always get to delete them everyday. Yahoo was the cloud before there was the cloud and as an apple and hp user I can say yahoo is better then the cloud that despite statements to the contrary DO LOSE “cloud backed up emails photos etc”.
Respect pro users and stop annoying them
by tb2112 on 2020/06/28 04:27
I appreciate the continual updating and improvements of the yahoo email app. As a paying pro customer, I expect to have the choice to have a professional, non-commercialized experience. For me, that’s what I am paying for , first and foremost. There is now a tab in the tab-bar that says “Deals”. I cannot see any option to remove this. I am not looking for any “Deals” when I use my yahoo pro account. Can you please provide an option to remove these commercialized features? (or tell me how to if I am missing something). Also, I receive too many emails nagging me to “upgrade to full yahoo mail experience” and warnings about other apps’ “insecure access”. Yahoo needs to stop with this, or give me a clear path to disable this spam. I understand that Yahoo prefers the richer analytics provided when users only access via their official Yahoo mail app. However, I also have my own preferences too — and as part of satisfying my own objectives, I choose to access my Yahoo account over several different platforms at different times. There is no factual proof that the platforms Yahoo keeps referring to as “insecure access”, and it’s in fact entirely possible that the opposite is true , i.e. that Yahoo’s own native app has security flaws that others do not - making it the less secure means of access.
Spam spam spam SPAM SPAM SPAM!!!!!!
by GoneFishin446 on 2019/05/30 19:21
Inferior service from an inferior company. AT& T is in the same sinking boat because they chose to partner with Yahoo without any consent from account holders. There has been much discussion reference the need for Government oversight into predominant social media companies, but I believe the attention needs to be refocused on antitrust laws applicable to GLOBAL CONGLOMERATIONS such as AT& T, who seem to be on a fast track to acquiring every service available leaving few remaining competitor options for the general public. Sounds disturbingly like they are on their way to becoming a “monopoly” after acquiring Direct TV and various other companies. Have you tried to wade through their miserable customer service or tech support lately? Very little risk of having to improve their service when there are fewer & fewer available competitors & in some U.S. demographics/geographical locations there are no other options. We are headed down a very SLIPPERY slope if the ‘Amazons’ and ‘AT&Ts’ are allowed to purchase, own and control every consumer market. Just saying!!
Don’t google - ever!
by How-Long Wang on 2019/09/05 21:18
Thank God that Bing, Yahoo, and Ask still provide us with search engine alternatives. Few things drive me up the wall than people saying/writing that they just “googled” something! No, what you mean is that you searched for something (or used the e-mail service) from a behemoth which has their paws in everything and which couldn’t care less about your personal privacy and/or other rights. If people don’t change their searching and email preferences away from Google (and soon) it will be too late. All that will remain is a leviathan which will continue to kowtow, and continue to supply your personal information, to the governments of the U.S., China, and Russia. They also will continue to provide your information to those companies which have their wallets open.
Good but could be improved.
by JRLB12457 on 2019/08/02 19:21
I’ve been using Yahoo Mail for about 17 years now, and still have all my email going back to the beginning, which is really great. I do like it but there are some features that could use improvement. (1) I don’t know why they got rid of the feature that allows you to click on a sender in order to add that person to your contacts. Now it’s a laborious process to add someone to your contacts. (2) Also lately when I underline a word the underlining automatically goes to the space before of the word as well. (3) The search function could really be improved. You cannot search for phrases, only for individual words, and even then, if the letters make out part of another word those results appear too (e.g., if you are searching for “ward,” your search results will include “toward,” “backward,” “forward,” etc.
Not impressed
by Scotty22873 on 2018/11/09 16:56
I’ve had yahoo email addresses for years and have always been pleased with it reliability. I have always used the standard iOS mail on my iPhone and had both personal and business yahoo addresses linked and everything worked very well for many years. Then yahoo took away the ability to push my emails to me on the iOS email server. So I downloaded this app. I now sometimes don’t even get email notifications at all, and I have my desktop, iOS mail, and this app. I’ve contacted Apple and everything is fine on their end, there is something going on with yahoo. And good luck getting a hold of anyone for support. They just direct you to their community forums, which is garbage. If you are looking to sign up with a new email address, use gmail and it’s app. If you are stuck with a yahoo account, I hope your experience is better than mine. Also, when I get a notification, it’s the same sound as a text message. How hard is it to give us an option to change a notification sounds?!
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.

Worthless
by Albatross1467 on 2020/09/23 03:11
This app doesn’t work at all. I can’t sign into my already existing account. I can’t use any yahoo app or yahoo account on my iOS. If I could I’d give it a negative score. Save yourself time and get a google account or something else because Yahoo doesn’t work anymore.

This app is a problem with everything the worst I’ve had!!!!😡😡😡😡 The worst From you I received a mail from Apple with a link to yahoo, 7/24 for assistance, but pay $4.99 a month; I feel scammed this is a free app and I have to pay for assistance because it don’t work. Do you think this is correct?? I don’t I have really had enough of paying for apps that now don’t exist. You really are a scam !!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

No NFL video tab
by Jtpalermo on 2020/09/22 16:24
I was so excited when I received an email from Yahoo that I could now watch NFL games with Yahoo mail. Excitement now gone replaced with frustration. I downloaded the new mail app but no video tab and no option to make it show. iPad 7 generation, iOS up to date. Ready to throw in towel. From the reviews it appears I’m not alone with this problem. Please do something. I live in Florida and miss my Buffalo Bills games. I was try to use the app on an iPad. The app only works on the iPhone. On the iPhone I was presented with a video update on the NFL teams which I couldn’t make go away. I finally gave up after an hour of frustration and deleted the app.
Yahoo mail
by annot be true on 2020/09/22 12:48
The old regular email service was much easier to work with. Would love to not have Yahoo Mail anymore When an email appears on the screen and I hit delete, the email stays on the screen. When using the old method, if you hit trash, the email disappeared from the screen. Just easier to follow with the older method.

With every update, there are fewer functions that work. Emails take forever to pop up after a notification. Search NEVER works!!! I’m tired of seeing Oops! Now, instead of contacting support I have to write a review because the support server cannot be contacted.
Search feature doesn’t work
by Dinosaur2038 on 2020/09/21 15:12
I have no complaints about the app except that the search option has stopped working probably 95% of the time. I end up just going to the website when I need to locate an email, which pretty much defeats the purpose of an app.
Pretty good with some simple problems
by K-1 digs on 2020/09/21 14:46
I generally enjoy this app until I want to do something simple like Copy an email address... the copy function AND undo function are unavailable in the app. You’d think in writing an email you would have reasons to want to copy someone’s email to put somewhere else, that’s pretty straightforward. But sometimes I can’t even read the entire email address something was sent from, let alone make use of it. Other than those simple issues, it works great, but those functions are pretty important in email land...

Update messed up look
by johntaz11 on 2020/09/21 00:47
I do not care for this latest change to the app, I liked the way it was laid out and the ease of moving emails to various folders, the new layout makes for more work on my part and I don’t need more of that. Please at least allow me to change to the previous layout.

I stopped using yahoo mail years ago because of its failure to send email or receive them. I just recently back to yahoo because they told me it was way better and faster not true. I’ve spent the last hour trying to email my accountant receipts and she’s not getting them🤬. So I deleted the app and now it’s taking forever to reinstall it, I hope you get the bugs worked out because I don’t have problem going back to (my mail) app we’ll see if yahoo still acting bad

Better way to delete old messages
by robnick84 on 2020/09/20 16:19
Wish it was a way to delete multiple emails without clicking buttons for each week. I have too many back up to delete that way
Very frustrating
by DLHSTMPR on 2020/09/20 16:06
I dislike this app so much that I am considering getting rid of the Yahoo email address that I have had for 15+ years and switching to Gmail. It’s bad enough that you can’t get rid of the ads at the top of every folder (Inbox,Trash, etc.) in the free app, ads have started showing up in the body of my opened messages! “Here are some things you might be interested in based on this email.” I would’ve considered paying for the pro app, but it is a monthly/yearly fee instead of a one-time purchase. I do not find the rest of the app to be very user friendly, either. The included email app on my iPhone recognizes which folder to file frequently received emails. This app makes me scroll through my folders each and every time I want to file an email. The layout of the app is also very “busy” on the eyes and not very straightforward. I want just a simple, clean, and easy (& free!) app to read my emails. I was notified by Yahoo that they could no longer assure the security of “third party” email apps. This is code for Yahoo no longer supporting/servicing Apple email apps. Very frustrating. Bottom line, I’m being forced to switch to a lesser product. I will have to decide whether or not to keep my Yahoo email address.

If you value your privacy, stay away (if that’s even possible)
by Jellyspotter on 2020/09/20 07:41
I’m surprised they haven’t asked me for a copy of my apartment lease to verify my identity. The amount of information they request and require is absurd. This is the least amount of privacy I’ve ever seen on an email service. Doesn’t help that my information to my email was leaked on the deep web; only finding out years later from my credit report. Oh and the funny thing is, they lock you in to giving them all your information. You need a phone number, a back up email, address, fulll name. All major companies are like this today, but at least when I go to my privacy dashboard in anything else it actually works. Because theirs does not and it has been. Broken. For 24 hours. If it wasn’t for my friends insisting on the fantasy app for football, I’d b done with yahoo.

Ads intrusive to the experience.
by MusicLver23 on 2020/09/20 05:01
With the latest update, ads now take up the entire top half the the screen viewing an email. I understand needing to run ads for a free products but not when it completely ruins the UI. It’s like they’re determined to drive the Yahoo brand down to the gutter.

Not able to view trash file
by sierra_99576 on 2020/09/19 05:58
I have this yahoo email for mainly spam from other websites ive ordered from and often delete the “deals of the day” when I’m at work (regularly check email). And later have wanted to look up the website (with any deals it might have since I don’t really look into them because I get so many). But on the app it does not show the trash like it does on the desk top. So on my iPhone, go into the safari app to be able to look into the trash file. Could not find it on the app at all to give me that option. Thanks for the ted talk

Free NFL Football
by spikeo2 on 2020/09/18 23:09
The Yahoo Mail app will not let me access the videos tab in order to watch NFL games. There is no videos tab on my app and when I click on that tab in a promotional email I was sent it goes to my app but does not bring up a videos tab or tell me what steps I need to take to find it. I think the Yahoo promotional email was intended to get you to sign up for the Yahoo app just so that they could access your personal data and habits and sell it to others. I think this is a scam! Prove me wrong!

Emails from Yahoo “You haven’t upgraded”
by frightbox on 2020/09/18 17:18
Why yes I have. Yet, you keep sending me emails to remind me to get the Yahoo App. And constantly asking me to upgrade so that I can go ad free. The ads are annoying enough but wouldn’t bother me but for the constant interruptions to remind me that I can go ad free by paying a ransom to yahoo. You’re like the mafia offering me protection for a monthly fee from you. Could you at least stop interrupting me with a pop up to tell me that I can go ad free? Trust me, I already know and don’t care.
Disruptive with zero way to customize views
by Arodriguez4983 on 2020/09/18 12:52
Don’t understand why yahoo decided that I should have 14 coupons and deals at the top of every email without letting the user decide if they want that to be featured. Or that I need a link to visit the site of the sender. I have to scroll ten feet before I even see the email. Or the constant notifications From the stupid extras like video and groceries that I can’t se to turn off. You need to allow people to change these disruptive settings. The amount of spam that comes through is ridiculous but my real emails make it spam folder instead. Stop doing the so much with the interface. People just wanna check and send emails without being annoyed by these features.

If I could figure out a way to leave with my email address that I have had since email began in the early days, I would take it and run!!! No one at this place cares! My mail gets misdirected to undisclosed places, and just when I think I can breathe they change it again. That’s what wanting your friends to find you means!! The “bird” goes to att and yahoo!!

Move Message to Folder
by Alisha543 on 2020/09/15 23:00
The one improvement I would make to this app is, similar to the Apple email application, add the “move item to suggested folder” option. Currently, when you go to move an email in the Yahoo app you have to scroll down to the folder and select it. For someone like myself who has many emails that I keep organized in different folders, it becomes very tedious to constantly scroll and search for the folder. The Apple mail application starts to learn which emails typically go and which folders and makes a suggestion, which saves me time and effort when cleaning up my inbox.

Won’t delete mail and false notifications
by DGavinD42069 on 2020/09/15 15:45
For a while now the app will claim I have emails (which I do) and it’ll take hours for the emails to pop up on the app but the notification numbers keep racking up on the icon, on top of that when it will load I’ll go to delete maybe 5 emails at a time and when I leave the app the notifications will go from 5 to 4 so I’ll have to go delete 4 out of the 5 emails I’ve already deleted. It’s highly annoying considering I do not like having my icons full of notifications. Highly considering getting rid of yahoo and going to gmail.

Paying $9.99 per year does not prevent ads from flooding the top of your email inbox along with the app being extremely slow.
Forces to Subscribe
by Dwershi0525 on 2020/09/14 18:44
The latest update is basically forcing you to subscribe so that you do not have to see the ads, which now take up all the space on your In Box. It’s ridiculous and obnoxious. EVERY TIME I open the app, I am forced to dislike the ad so I can read my emails. I’ve been a loyal Yahoo user for more than 10 years and I’m really not happy with this new update.

Why have you changed the app? Now, when you exit out of the app, the extended contacts list disappears.

Update: I have since deleted the app. I was previously getting about 10 spam emails per day. Some of them even came to my inbox. After I deleted the app, I haven’t gotten ANY spam emails. I think the app is corrupt. I will never use Yahoo Mail App again.

No more Ads
by RavnBee on 2020/09/14 00:03
Wow. I can’t believe that an email app now has advertisements. It was bearable when it was at the top. Didn’t like it, but whatever. Now it’s in between emails & they’re super large. Why??? I’m trying to check my emails, and I don’t want to be bombarded with stupid ads. Tho Pro is only 99¢/month... I’m still not paying for it. Makes me want to delete my yahoo email, however, kind of stuck with it because it’s connected to other accounts. If this keeps persisting, I will cancel my yahoo account, and stick with some other email provider. Bottom line... emails should NOT be a place to randomly shove advertisements in your face. It’s not Facebook or any other social media platform of that nature. Again, personally wouldn’t complain much if the ads were at the top.

Best Mail App, for the Mail I can see!
by nateeter on 2020/09/13 16:27
I like this so much better than apple’s mail app. However, the ads have become ridiculously large, so much so that I can only see two emails on my phone screen with the ad taking up the majority space. I understand ads are how you keep the app free for those who aren’t willing to pay a monthly “bill” to have email, but they’ve become such a frustrating distraction that I’m now trying other email apps. Honestly, if I could pay a one time, reasonable fee, this newest ploy of yours likely would have worked, but even at only $.99 per month, I’m not paying you monthly to not annoy me. There are apps with better business models than that.
The longer they “update” the worse it gets.

No way to block “domains”, no way to limit/remove “previous deals” on top of the received emails. I wonder why I still insist on using yahoo mail.
I’ve had Yahoo Mail since 1997
by Peelage on 2020/06/23 20:33
I adopted to this platform early on. I’ve known yahoo longer than I’ve know most of my friends. Yahoo and I have seen a rollercoaster of emotions. From data breaches to flat out angst over sending everyone in my contacts list magic weight loss berries spam. That said, this app has grown up into a secure, fierce email. I have the ad free version so it’s super quick and worth the cheap price. This app I’ve deleted so many times for the stock Apple Mail App, but I keep on coming back to Yahoo. It’s quick and probably my most used application on my phone and iPad by far. These 5 stars are earned for the loyalty of it all. Keep the updates coming, I look forward to all of the improvements. If you’d like to jump on project catalyst and make a Mac app, that’d be sweet! Also, I’d like more customizations and colors in settings, but I’m sure they are coming. Feel free to hire me on to your team to make this app a perfect 10.
No Setting For Notification Sounds
by Daman M on 2018/06/30 15:22
Deleted app finally. I linked yahoo mail through gmail. I highly recommend. More flaws to report with yahoo app. I am using an iPhone X. Mail would disappear from the inbox if I clicked on a new mail notification. Would take hours to appear back. If I used the search to find an old email it would find the email and when I click on it the email it would just load and load an nothing would appear. I finally had to forward the email to gmail so I could view it. Also why should one have to pay to remove annoying ads which aren’t even applicable to what I am interested in. Worst app ever. Minus one star for not being able to change sounds for incoming & outgoing mail. If you have an iPhone you are stuck with the generic default notification and can’t change it at all in the settings of the app or in the settings for the iPhone. Second minus star that they show irrelevant ads in the top of the inbox. I don’t want to pay a dollar a month to get rid of it. If you want people to use your app rather than the default mail setting in the iPhone then get rid of that like gmail and outlook have in their free versions. Update to the developer’s reply. That is untrue. Both the Outlook and Google mail apps. let you change sound notifications within the “settings” of the widget themselves and not in the actual Apple settings.
I have Yahoo! basic were I don’t pay anything for it
by MABasenjis on 2019/07/09 13:42
The only thing I don’t like about this and the reason I give it only two stars is not only do I get advertisements at the top of my email inbox but sometimes I get spam emails in my inbox instead of going into my spam folder and when I ask Yahoo! about this they tell me to upgrade to where I have to pay $.99 so I won’t get those spam emails or the ads up at the top of my email inbox that’s another annoying thing if it’s free then you shouldn’t have to pay anything to have the ad removed if you say you just like the ad you shouldn’t have to pay anything for an email service unless it’s a business account and you have a lot of other features and with me I just go ahead and send emails every once in a while and this is the same account as I’ve had for about five or six years since I opened my email address account and that’s my opinion of Yahoo! basic if I don’t want the ad they say it’s called the Yahoo! pro program and I don’t want to pay that because when I signed up for Yahoo! basic I was looking for a free and non- ad based email and that’s what Yahoo! was I know they have do you have to use Yahoo! pro if you don’t want the advertisements at the top why should you have to pay if it’s a free service for no advertisements why is it deleting enough
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!
Doesn't Allow Scrolling
by jetnova16 on 2019/03/06 19:34
When you try to advance to new emails further down the scrolling section of emails in the Inbox, Spam folders as well as your own created folders the app automatically scrolls up enlarging the scroll bar as it advances back up on its own making it 100% impossible to scroll down to any and all emails that are off the screen and thus further down. The only way to get to them is to go to Full Screen View on one email and using the arrows to advance down to earlier previous emails. Because of this it makes this app 100% impossible to use and thus really not worth any Stars whatsoever. Especially since this problem has been going on for months (since well into 2018) and all Feedback complaining about it has been ignored and it's only gotten worse with each update to this app. It used to only effect the Spam folder, then it also affected Created Folders and the Archives folder and most recently it's been effecting the Inbox as well. Thus with each time the problem has made the Yahoo Email App 100% impossible to use and requiring going to Safari or a Computer to get it to actually work right. With Yahoo also ignoring Feedback on this problem for months and not fixing it in any update this app is 100% NOT WORTH IT!
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?
Absolutely WOULD NOT recommend till bug is fixed!!
by GOVS Fan on 2019/05/04 14:04
My PROBLEM/COMPLIANT is Yahoo continues to automatically add contacts to my contact list, even from all my Spam mail folder, without me telling it to. NOT a GOOD THING Yahoo. See previous review info below with details about what is going on. "Yahoo/App allows very little user control, yet their security seems to be very suspect. For example, every address, even from Spam emails, is added to your contacts list. Yahoo should NEVER be taking it on themselves to decide who I want in my contact list. I should have control of who I want added to my contacts, not the other way around. Certainly not Spam addresses! And once they are added, Yahoo makes sure you cannot batch delete them. (Here's an example of how many unwanted contacts are added in a short period of time): I had just cleaned out my contacts about a week ago. Today I had to go in and individually delete another almost 80 unwanted addresses. Should NEVER have happen in the first place Yahoo!!! Who wants Spam addresses automatically added to your contacts list? And if you want help, have a suggestion, or need to write Yahoo for assistance, there is never any help or response. They make sure their privacy is intact, they just don't respect ours."
It gets email!
by Tmprmntl13 on 2018/02/17 04:54
Outside of retrieving email, this app is not very user friendly. The Apple email app, which is already present and cannot be deleted, is equally as good, if not better. Or there are other apps like gmail that are cleaner and easier to use, even with yahoo accounts. After the initial review (above), Yahoo contacted me to ask me to tell them how to make their product better. I will try to put this into perspective. The Yahoo app is like a stiff version of Apple mail. Things are placed awkwardly and do not function smoothly or easily. And when I set up an account, my first attempt didn't go as I wanted it to. So I set up a second, duplicate account, thinking I could delete the first. But the app will only allow me to delete the correct account. The incorrect one does not show under Manage Accounts. The only way I can see to eliminate it is to kill the app and start over. As stated previously, my review is that until Yahoo does their own homework, there are better apps to handle your email. I recommend trying a side-by-side comparison with this app, the Apple app and the Gmail app. Then you can make up your own mind. I would lay odds that the Yahoo app is your first choice...to delete.
Great except for the “Deals in this Email” that dramatically slow you down
by jsmithdmi on 2019/11/23 14:01
I’ve used the iPhone Mail app well...since I’ve had my first iPhone. I’ve also always had a yahoo email address, and had seen they completely overhauled the yahoo app a little while back. I tried it and it was fantastic!! It made moving through all the mail (including junk mail) so much easier and quicker by simply swiping from email to email! However then the “deals in this email” started popping up and that wouldn’t clear the “unread” status. I tried emailing support to ask if there was a way to disable the deals component as it was quite annoying to have to back out of the message and go back in to “clear”and was given a canned response “we can’t respond to all emails so try our support page/FAQ”.....well, I also don’t have to use your app and can go back to my mail app. Then an update came out and that was gone...but then it’s back. Long story short, the app is good and user friendly...except for the pain in the behind deals from this email stuff, which if it stays will likey push me back to my native email app.
You know about spam reaching inbox for months
by hjohnnym on 2018/05/22 06:44
But yahoo keeps sending to my inbox.. Tiffany and Co, Louis Vuitton are your favorite spammers. Why do I say that? They probably pay you to let them bypass the spam filter. You let them spam multiple yahoo accounts and from .eu email addresses, that means Europe. Now before you say, we will fix it, I’ve read reviews complaining of the same thing from Late 2017 and into January and February 2018. It’s May 2018. You refuse to do anything about it. Yahoo and Oath is a crap company. I’ve complained on Oaths Facebook messages and posts. You don’t even read them. Your a corrupt company that spams its members for profit. I don’t have this problem with gmail and I recommend gmail to anyone reading these reviews. You refuse to do anything about putting the spam in the spam folder( your not smart enough to do this) The spammers are smarter than your corrupt mail and spam teams. You like spam, you let them spam hundreds of millions of users, they complain, you do nothing. Fix your bad spam filter today. Oath is a spam company. You get rich off it, that’s the only reason for derelict of duty. 5 months ago someone complained here on these reviews. You haven’t and won’t fix it because they pay you to bypass the spam filter.
Not so good anymore
by upsetandforgotten on 2018/10/24 00:30
I started using Yahoo email in 2004 and liked it enough to stick with it even in the advent of gmail, hotmail, etc. But I made a major mistake: I linked some accounts. It was great for a while, with the aliases available to one click to another of my several accounts, each with their own folders. But now I can’t unlink the accounts or be rid of the useless aliases, all the accounts have similar folders AND for some reason 2 accounts must have the same password. I spent $10 and 5 hours on the phone with “help”, working with 4 different people and accomplished nothing. Now I moved 2 of the accounts to gmail. $10 would have been a bargain for the amount of time spent with me if they could help, but they could not. At times I broke out in a sweat as it seemed as if folders and then even accounts with folders of important files from years ago disappeared, but then they magically appeared again later and my wet body relaxed a bit. AND I can only have 2 accounts in Firefox, instead of the 4 accounts that I used to have in Firefox. What a shame. If I could figure out how to easily move folders and their contents to gmail I would, even though I much prefer Yahoo when it worked.
Horrible
by UghNowWhat on 2018/02/08 17:03
Should be ZERO stars, but not allowed. When you tap a link in an email it doesn’t open your web browser, it opens a yahoo browser. It’s a way for yahoo to not only track which sites you connect to (always did that), now their browser lets them see what you look at, what you buy, and your personal information. If I can’t find a way to disable their ‘fake’ browser soon will delete this app for sure. ****I KNOW that I can tap the compass icon to get to my web browser, but that’s an unnecessary step I shouldn’t have to take. If yahoo hadn’t added the extra step I wouldn’t need to complain. And please no more claiming that yahoo didn’t do it to track my online browsing!!!**** Also if you tap on an email to flag it, it often disappears, then you have to go to the flagged (now called starred) emails and hope it’s there. It also happens when you try to open an email to read it, sometimes it will disappear too. Then you have to go into another folder and come back and hope that the email has reappeared. And finally the yahoo email app frequently does not send a failure to deliver message when emails don’t go through, so I had no way of knowing how many people weren’t getting my email!!!
My honest review
by Dasleeper on 2017/11/07 07:26
Yahoo Mail was my first ever email address when this whole internet thing took off. I eventually found out that I was going to need a different, or another email address because this Yahoo address was filling up fast with garage mail, or spam and my important emails were getting lost in all the spam. This was years ago, whenever all this started out and I now have 4 email addresses. I use each email address for a specific purpose, but I still use my Yahoo mail for getting information from the net knowing that whoever I’m getting the information from is going to sell my email address to a spammer, that’s why they’re is nearly 10,000 emails in my inbox and I have to delete another nearly 2000 garbage emails in my Spam Folder every week. It seems like the more I Unsubscribe to many of the emails the more I get. It seems like Yahoo is nothing more than a Spam destination, but now some of my other email addresses are more spam lately. Although you could say I’m not exactly happy with Yahoo mail, I very much like Yahoo Financial & Yahoo News. It keeps me updated on the things that I’m interested in...
Notifications fixed in latest update
by Cori C. on 2018/06/25 19:55
Update: 4.5 stars The notifications finally got fixed for me with the latest update, and the badge on the app now finally shows the correct number as well. My only complaint now is the ads that show up in the list of emails that you have to scroll through. I think that the ad at the top of the list is enough. Previous review: This app has become nearly useless to me because it doesn’t show me incoming emails in notifications. At first just the badge notification (the number on the app) stopped working and showed either nothing or the number of new emails since I had last opened the app (which wasn’t always accurate), but now it shows no badge and it also doesn’t send push notifications when new emails come in. I have tried re-downloading the app numerous times (which is how it got messed up in the first place, I re-downloaded the app to free up space), and no luck. If this doesn’t get resolved, I’m gonna find a new mail app.
Yet another improved version that is not an improvement
by KaolinKid on 2018/01/24 11:47
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!!! Where is the viewing sort email by sender function? I use that to delete emails by sender and it is so much easier to clear the inbox that way. Swiping to delete a couple of emails is OK but when you have hundreds or thousands of emails to delete swiping or touching each one is not a desirable option. Before the change, I could sort by sender and highlight one email, hold the shift key click on an email way down the list which highlighted all other emails in between, hit delete and in a couple of key strokes I have deleted a hundred emails. Why take that ability away? That has been one of the major problems with gmail, you cannot sort by sender, which made yahoo mail more user friendly thus more desirable than gmail. Developers pat themselves on the back for giving users the ability to use emojis or gifs on a grand scale but take away the basic functions we use more. If a user is not interested in emojis or gifs then you have not improved anything with new and so-called improved versions you have just create a great deal of frustration and animosity for you product.
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.
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'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.
What a waste
by Ujstme on 2017/11/05 10:17
What kind of idiot would create an app that when you click a link opens a separate page that is ONLY linked to mail instead of going to internet web page, god forbid you need to go back the email to get additional info. Time to start over. Yes you can still go to web page (clicking again) but when you go back to email you now have to say you’re done on that extra page. Now on to deleting multiple emails at once.... select more than the page you can see and the fun begins. First off the display to the right starts scrolling for every item you select and when you hit delete you are now some where towards the bottom of all your emails and not where you left off. Time to scroll back to the top... And god forbid you try to use the old tried and trusted outlook... your deleted emails suddenly re appear as if you never looked at them. If only I knew then what I know now. I would have gone a different way for sure..
Frustrating
by Soniaylenin on 2018/01/23 03:09
I’m adding more stars because three days later I’m finally able to use my second email. However I still can’t delete it if I wanted to. So I finally tried the app. I’ve been using my iPhone mail app for years. But I am so frustrated with the yahoo app right now. I added my account and everything was fine but then I added a second yahoo email, that one doesn’t show the key next to it like my primary email does. Well the second one never finished loading and I can’t do anything with it. I added the second one again a different way and that time it showed the key next to it and download fully. The frustrating part is that I can’t delete the one without the key next to it. It is just sitting there doing nothing. I tried deleting the other ones and basically leaving the app with no open accounts, added the main one again and it comes back with it. I tried deleting the app and downloading it again and it is still there. If I can't get it deleted I will not use this app at all!
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.
Bucking the FLAT minimalist trend --- FINALLY
by webmonkeymon on 2019/03/20 03:17
Yahoo! To Yahoo for not giving up on usability. Now when I view email I get a company logo or Facebook icons. And the yahoo mystical logo on the right. Mammals reintroduced color vision and two eyes I front are for better depth perception, why are designs today reverting? Well with exception for f yahoo... IMHO Apples interface is about money not use ability. They are so international that the make their navigation easy to translate internationally to save money. So instead of add, you get + or instead of menu you get a triple hyphen. IMHO Steve jobs was a control freak money mongrel more than he was a visual artist. He dressed colorless and flay to because he was colorless. Pixar made him rich and they kicked him out of their creative process. See creativity Inc Colorful is useful. Thanks yahoo for helping me see quickly the story of my email and leading the way past apple arrogance. There is hope, YAHOO!
HORRIBLE email app
by Nygiant75 on 2019/10/21 22:45
I have never had problems with yahoo email until recently. Maybe 2 months ago it started. Have an iPhone Xr with iOS 13.1.3. App continuously crashes while viewing emails and even when typing one. Just shuts down and my phone goes back to the home screen. The OTHER BIG ISSUE? CANNOT dictate emails on yahoo app. Meaning, hit microphone button and speak what you want email to say. You do it and it turns off within 1.5 seconds. You get MAYBE 3 words out and the mic cuts off and the cursor goes to the front of the sentence. Is it a phone issue you ask? NO! Speaking text works on every other app or program on my phone without doing this. The workaround? Use the built in email app on the iPhone and link my yahoo account. Not good because NO OPTION TO PUSH NOTIFICATIONS. Have to manually check email about 20 times a day in order to get emails in a timely fashion. I’m am so mad about this. Been a yahoo email user since early 2000!!! NO WAY I’m the only one with this issue. Yahoo.....you aren’t aware of this? FIX IT PLEASE!!!! I’ve deleted and reinstalled app multiple times and it doesn’t fix it.
Why did you change the order of e-mails after deletion???
by Greg Da Man on 2018/02/11 18:39
For some reason they switched the order of viewing for your e-mails. I like to view my oldest unread e-mail message first and work my way up. It used to be that the next newest e-mail would appear after you deleted the e-mail that you were looking at. Now it sends you to the older e-mail instead of the newer e-mail making you swipe right to go to your next e-mail. This is counterintuitive and annoying! I will go back to using the E-mail app built in to iOS until this problem is fixed. Sorry Yahoo… The resolution of text and images is deformed and hard to read usually. You're still better off using the built in E-Mail app on the bottom of the home screen, but this Yahoo Mail app is improving continuously. Maybe Yahoo will improve the tiny display format that usually makes it hard to read your e-mails in the next update. I know they can do better.
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.
Not what it used to be
by 12345Marijke on 2020/01/22 18:13
I have used the Yahoo Mail App up until two months ago and never had a problem with it. I loved it and rated accordingly. With one of the more recent updates on my iPhone/iPad I wasn’t able to use dictation on my yahoo email. I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it and after two months it started working again. Now I am having issues with not being able to send emails for 2-3 days at a time. Yahoo puts the email into my drafts but will not send because it says it looks like spam. There are no links attached and I rewrite and simplify to no avail. I have tried to contact Yahoo but I am getting nowhere. It’s to the point that I am thinking of getting a different mail carrier. Is there anything you can do to help me out? I really don’t want to get rid of yahoo after all this.
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!
Yahoo
by Tomeh1 on 2019/03/09 13:57
Articles too biased. Too many from CNN & MSNBC, both of whom hate Trump and do not write fair stories or cover many important issues, such as good news of the employment figures, how minorities are doing better than any time in history, how so many more are killed in auto accidents than by guns, even though the Fed Govt has spent years of money & regulations to make autos safer, how our lower & middle class are being hurt badly by illegal immigration & everyone’s safety is at risk from unknown flooding over the boarders. How none of the incitement’s have anything to do with ‘Russian Collusion’ & how much this investigation is costing taxpayers & how much the ‘political investigations by democrats are costing money & time from business that needs conducting. There is so much more to be covered but all you want to do is focus on anything that might hurt the president & consequently are hurting the entire USA. As far as the operation of the Yahoo site, it’s slow, doesn’t respond many times and I have to open the page 2 or 3 times. It just doesn’t compare to gmail. Tom😡
Stop Asking me to Rate It
by Volleyshots on 2018/03/13 16:33
I was forced to switch to this app a few months months back when Yahoo decided not to play nice with Apple Mail. I switched after being asked for my Yahoo password literally twenty times a day. The app is functional and I have no real complaints about that, but having to extort your clients into using it is a pretty bad business model. Now I get asked to rate the app every single morning, so here ya go. Update: Since I posted this a few weeks back I've been asked to rate it at least once every two days. If you don't like your apps to bug you, don't use this app. Update: As if this app wasn't annoying enough, it now puts ads right in the middle of your email list, forcing you to have to click the "X" to get rid of it. Once you do that, it asks you a multiple choice question about why you wanted to get rid of it... Seriously guys, I want to get rid of it because it is an annoying ad that you put right in the middle of my emails. What other reason would there be...? For advertisers buying space here, just realize that I'll never click your ad EVER.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Buggy for years
by catherineph on 2019/11/07 00:12
Been using this app for years and I’ve had the same problem for a couple now. I have 2 yahoo accounts with account key enabled. For some reason, each account shows up TWICE on the menu—once indicating account key is enabled, the other without—for both accounts. It’s a total hassle to remove. Last time I had to disable account key for each account, sign out, and enable it again, so right now I’m just leaving it as is. The problem is that I get notified TWICE when an email comes in. In addition, though one account shows up twice, the other account will not updated when emails are read, deleted, etc. In other words, even if I open an email or delete it, it will still show up in the “other” account as unread. Sometimes, it will fix itself after waiting a while, sometimes it won’t. Again, I’ve had this problem for so long that I don’t remember ever using this app without that issue. Can’t believe it still hasn’t been fixed.
Help me see people emails among the tsunami of sales emails!
by Debi1226 on 2018/11/29 11:53
Can you help me prioritize/ separate emails from people and minimize emails from companies advertising sales? I unsubscribe to many, but it is only a temporary relief. I do not want to unsubscribe to all stores as they’re helpful at times. Email lists get bought and I continue to have more solicitations than I could ever care for. The downfall: I miss important personal emails among all the solicitation emails. Is it possible to create a sorting mechanism that I can turn on/off at will? Thinking you need to expand capabilities currently available. Your system has a too simplified view of sorting as excel format. By dates, when you can switch views at the top of the column: A>Z, Z>A, people> organizations? How about this: by Subject line: no solicitation indicated>sales: stores, fundraising, political messages indicated in subject or message??? High Priority (from contact list?) > low priority ( add a mechanism for me to indicate level of priority?)
So annoying and gets more glitches with each update
by BexAnders on 2018/02/15 04:38
I only downloaded this app because I was annoyed with the constant notifications from yahoo that using a third party email app wasn't secure. Unfortunately, I'm even more annoyed now. This app is so frustrating. From incorrect notifications of emails to the useless archive button I constantly hit and have to undo, I really hate using it. Oh, and for some idiotic reason, it sends reply emails from a different address than the one the email came in to. Update...for months it shows an email and once it's opened, the email disappears. I have to switch accounts and switch back to make it reappear. It freezes all the time and the stupid, slow loading ads at the top of the email list are always getting in the way of opening actual mail. Further, with the latest update, I no longer get images in emails. At all. Nor the option to load images that most other providers have. If I didn't have this account for 20 years, I'd get rid of yahoo entirely. If I could give 0 stars, I would.
Horribly disappointed
by Skillyfoy on 2018/08/11 05:08
Why in the world does this app have ads? This is an email app, from one of the largest search engines in the world. You'd think they'd be able to give us at least one basic product without having advertisements! Way to go Google, Microsoft, and Apple, you win the email app game. Yahoo: get your stuff together. I'm disappointed. To be honest, I would give this negative stars because their competition is delivering basically the same product for free. As far as functionality, it's an email app. It sends and receives email just like it's supposed to. Sweet. But the experience is horrible because anytime I click on the first email in my list, an ad pops up and I click on that instead, on accident. That is so annoying. Sooooooooooo annoying. Developers, please take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself if you would even use this app yourself. The only reason I have it is because Yahoo doesn't seem to play well with Apple's native email app. So basically I'm being coerced into this poor experience. Booooooo. Not cool Yahoo, not cool.
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'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'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's a work horse and it more than get the job done!
Could be better...
by SewSweet on 2018/03/15 15:21
The app works just fine and I’ve had no problems with it’s operation. However, there are a couple of things that don’t sit well with me. First, I like using the Apple mail app because I can see all of my email accounts in one view (All inboxes) if I choose too! Not the case with the Yahoo Mail app. Secondly, I don’t like the feeling of being forced to use an app...what I mean is since I’ve added the Yahoo mail app, my Apple mail app is not syncing properly as it had prior too installing Yahoo. The only time it syncs is when I go into the Yahoo app first. I’ve removed my Yahoo email account from my Apple mail to try and reset it and we’ll see if that helps. If I continue to have problems, I may be forced to get a new main email account which is sad because I’ve had this Yahoo email for many, many years! I love the progression of new technology...but don’t just force us to change, give us better options!
Best email app
by Letgo Kate on 2018/11/08 00:02
Wherever I am, whatever device I’m on-even away I can access my emails. Computer device crashes no worry just access yahoo from somewhere else and I never miss a beat. It gives me headlines on my devices and an option to read, delete, even mark as read but keep. Emails I keep for easy access to sites, sentimental reason or because it holds info I need to save, are kept safe. There is never a worry that if a device crashes or simply running slow, my “must keep emails” are safe and will not be lost. On top of everything yahoo allows you to keep an insane number of emails. I can get up to 50+ a day and don’t always get to delete them everyday. Yahoo was the cloud before there was the cloud and as an apple and hp user I can say yahoo is better then the cloud that despite statements to the contrary DO LOSE “cloud backed up emails photos etc”.
Respect pro users and stop annoying them
by tb2112 on 2020/06/28 04:27
I appreciate the continual updating and improvements of the yahoo email app. As a paying pro customer, I expect to have the choice to have a professional, non-commercialized experience. For me, that’s what I am paying for , first and foremost. There is now a tab in the tab-bar that says “Deals”. I cannot see any option to remove this. I am not looking for any “Deals” when I use my yahoo pro account. Can you please provide an option to remove these commercialized features? (or tell me how to if I am missing something). Also, I receive too many emails nagging me to “upgrade to full yahoo mail experience” and warnings about other apps’ “insecure access”. Yahoo needs to stop with this, or give me a clear path to disable this spam. I understand that Yahoo prefers the richer analytics provided when users only access via their official Yahoo mail app. However, I also have my own preferences too — and as part of satisfying my own objectives, I choose to access my Yahoo account over several different platforms at different times. There is no factual proof that the platforms Yahoo keeps referring to as “insecure access”, and it’s in fact entirely possible that the opposite is true , i.e. that Yahoo’s own native app has security flaws that others do not - making it the less secure means of access.
Spam spam spam SPAM SPAM SPAM!!!!!!
by GoneFishin446 on 2019/05/30 19:21
Inferior service from an inferior company. AT& T is in the same sinking boat because they chose to partner with Yahoo without any consent from account holders. There has been much discussion reference the need for Government oversight into predominant social media companies, but I believe the attention needs to be refocused on antitrust laws applicable to GLOBAL CONGLOMERATIONS such as AT& T, who seem to be on a fast track to acquiring every service available leaving few remaining competitor options for the general public. Sounds disturbingly like they are on their way to becoming a “monopoly” after acquiring Direct TV and various other companies. Have you tried to wade through their miserable customer service or tech support lately? Very little risk of having to improve their service when there are fewer & fewer available competitors & in some U.S. demographics/geographical locations there are no other options. We are headed down a very SLIPPERY slope if the ‘Amazons’ and ‘AT&Ts’ are allowed to purchase, own and control every consumer market. Just saying!!
Don’t google - ever!
by How-Long Wang on 2019/09/05 21:18
Thank God that Bing, Yahoo, and Ask still provide us with search engine alternatives. Few things drive me up the wall than people saying/writing that they just “googled” something! No, what you mean is that you searched for something (or used the e-mail service) from a behemoth which has their paws in everything and which couldn’t care less about your personal privacy and/or other rights. If people don’t change their searching and email preferences away from Google (and soon) it will be too late. All that will remain is a leviathan which will continue to kowtow, and continue to supply your personal information, to the governments of the U.S., China, and Russia. They also will continue to provide your information to those companies which have their wallets open.
Good but could be improved.
by JRLB12457 on 2019/08/02 19:21
I’ve been using Yahoo Mail for about 17 years now, and still have all my email going back to the beginning, which is really great. I do like it but there are some features that could use improvement. (1) I don’t know why they got rid of the feature that allows you to click on a sender in order to add that person to your contacts. Now it’s a laborious process to add someone to your contacts. (2) Also lately when I underline a word the underlining automatically goes to the space before of the word as well. (3) The search function could really be improved. You cannot search for phrases, only for individual words, and even then, if the letters make out part of another word those results appear too (e.g., if you are searching for “ward,” your search results will include “toward,” “backward,” “forward,” etc.
Not impressed
by Scotty22873 on 2018/11/09 16:56
I’ve had yahoo email addresses for years and have always been pleased with it reliability. I have always used the standard iOS mail on my iPhone and had both personal and business yahoo addresses linked and everything worked very well for many years. Then yahoo took away the ability to push my emails to me on the iOS email server. So I downloaded this app. I now sometimes don’t even get email notifications at all, and I have my desktop, iOS mail, and this app. I’ve contacted Apple and everything is fine on their end, there is something going on with yahoo. And good luck getting a hold of anyone for support. They just direct you to their community forums, which is garbage. If you are looking to sign up with a new email address, use gmail and it’s app. If you are stuck with a yahoo account, I hope your experience is better than mine. Also, when I get a notification, it’s the same sound as a text message. How hard is it to give us an option to change a notification sounds?!
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.
