What do you like best?

The reading pain is my favorite part of Yahoo Mail. I can quickly scan my emails without opening them up individually so that I can see what I need to attend to and what I can ignore or get rid of. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the ads that look like an email at the top of my inbox.

I understand why organizations might not choose yahoo mail for their primary employee email system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an elected official, I use Yahoo Mail as an auxiliary email account. This is the email address I give out to organizations and people who I think are going to send me lots of mail that might not all be important. With the reading pain, I can quickly review my Yahoo account and see what needs my attention and what is unimportant. The sort feature is also very helpful when I want to look for something or want to clean out emails that have built up in my inbox. I also like that I can store my Yahoo emails in folders that I create. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Yahoo mail is very simple to use. Almost too simple. There isn't a whole lot to it but it is a great tool for those that do not require a lot of automation with their email. It's easy to drag and drop, respond, forward - all the basic tasks of email. The app is easy to use as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

With many mail platforms (not just yahoo mail) it's very simple. Too simple. There's not a whole lot of robust features that would simplify my job. It's a mail platform. And yahoo, being one of the pioneers, has been around for a very long time. I just don't see anything fantastic about the platform compared to Outlook. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for an easy software to use to manage your mail, Yahoo mail would be the one. It gives you everything you need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since it's basic email, there's not really a whole lot of problems to solve with it. It's easy to use, efficient, does not take a lot of time. The app is great - I can recall, forward, reply, attach with ease. Using Yahoo had helped maintain the emails coming in at a busy medical practice that I had managed a few years back but they also had not implemented any type of Microsoft system.

The major issue of this site because it contains so many viruses if transfer any files or documents through this application. Anyone can share any thing without any valid information and yahoo accept the information which is uploading by users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Yahoo Mail attached document preview software is not at all good. It's slow and doesn't give a full picture of the document until it's downloaded. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's helped my family to create an umbrella of email ids for online investments and money management. It's like the tax records and investment documents serially saved month wise for handy use. So it's made money management easier for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Yahoo Mail has been the gold standard for digital email services for the past decade. Every new digital mail software that comes out has followed the path Yahoo Mail has paved for it. It was innovative when it first came out and it is still great now. Yahoo Mail is great for quick messaging and communication through long distances and it has been very good to me for the many years I have used it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how Yahoo Mail has not changed much over the past few years. Since the start of Yahoo Mail, there has not been that many updates or changes done to improve the overall system. Since then, other softwares like Gmail have taken over and Yahoo has fallen behind. I am very disappointed that Yahoo had not implemented any changes or improvements. Also its compatibility with other mailing softwares is troubling to say the least. There has been countless times when I could not communicate with other people with Yahoo because their emails were with Google and Gmail. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yahoo mail definitely is not the best option for a digital mailing software, however, if you already have a Gmail account, I do not see why not to try out Yahoo. There are a lot of accounts and you cannot communicate throughout all of them through a Gmail account Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Yahoo Mail has been exceptional. It has shortened the time and distance of communication and also triggered the digital boom we see today. It has brought so many people closer together and I could not imagine a world without it. However, I can feel that Yahoo is dying. It cannot keep up with its competitors and what they are offering. It will be a sad day when Yahoo falls to its various copies and counterparts. Even though it was the first, that doesn't guarantee its place at first. It just cannot keep up.

What do you like best?

I still remember when one of my classmate said she is using yahoo. I was amazed with this word as it doesn't matched its function. It was 2002 (or 2003). I created my account on yahoo and got connected to the world for the first time. It was yahoo who made me get rid of physical letters. It was yahoo who made me connected to rest of the institutes within and outside my country. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

With great regrets there are many dislikes about yahoo at this moment. Number one is the recent mail which I got from yahoo stating a breech in there system a few years before. Secondly, yahoo has left its users to the other services like gmail. Yahoo has no other feature to hold its user as that provided by gmail in the form of android and other sort of things and applications. I still use yahoo but I have linked it to gmail because I still love it as is my first website in the world of internet and hope there would be many as like me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is nothing special to be looked for in yahoo mail. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Honestly speaking, at this moment I am not solving any problem with yahoo except for signing in to different websites and making conversation with people having my yahoo ID. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Yahoo! Mail provides perhaps the best webmail interface out there. I write this because the different categories are laid out on the left side of the screen in a logical fashion, which is about the same as Microsoft Outlook's layout. This means that the most important folders and access to what email users need the most is only one click away, and not hidden in drop down menus, or placed somewhere else that consumes time to find. The system displays emails chronologically, and does not combine them into conversation view like some email services do (this way emails do not get missed)! The interface is simple, yet elegant. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only downside to Yahoo! Mail is that it is not considered to be a service for young or cool people anymore. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you do not care about your email domain, Yahoo! Mail is a solid choice! Or, even if you need a second email address that has a nice webmail interface, it works well. Categories, such as documents and pictures, are readily available on the left side of the interface (makes like easy). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been loyal to Yahoo! Mail for over twenty years. It has never failed me, and the POP3 access allowed me to sync it with over services that came and went throughout the years. It is a good service to use when trying different websites and services that require an email address for confirmation, or to use as a backup email address instead of work email.

What do you like best?

Yahoo mail enables you to coordinate and oversee various records in a single letter drop, something that I like in Yahoo mail is his android application. It's quick, don't consume space on our gadget and it's ideal to utilize any place you are. It's surely extraordinary compared to other free-mail choices you can isolate the email strings from discussion to separate messages. It is very easy to use stage The limit of Yahoo to furnish a speed and productivity concerning the mailings, confirming thoroughly, together with its simple access, makes it completely useful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Something that bothers me about yahoo is the number of ads that show in your inbox. If I want them to disappear I have to pay, when there are alternatives that I can have my free advertising mail free Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend to those who have not used yahoo mail to give it a chance if they do not have much inconvenience with the advertising that appears I assure you that they will enjoy the functions that yahoo offers as email. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using yahoo mail as my main email for some years and it has given me the characteristics I was looking for in email, it is easy to use, very intuitive and light personal I am satisfied with the daily use of yahoo mail both in my personal life and in my working life and I am very satisfied with the result Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Yahoo is one of the many options we have for your personal or business e-mail.
