Search by name
Search by keyword
Search the Web
Yahoo Mail search makes it simple to find files from a specific person. When you type a name into the search box, you will see a list of suggested people ranked based on who you email with the most. Once you select the person, our new, improved search results page can help you sort and narrow down emails, documents, and files sent from your contact to find you exactly what you need.
When you know what an email is about, but not sure who sent it, try searching your mail by keyword. Save time scrolling by simply entering a word you know is in the email and letting our smart search find it for you. For example, say you are trying to find an email about a meeting. In the search box at the top of your mail, type in the word “meeting” and hit the Search Mail button. You’ll see a list of results with all emails with that keyword mentioned.
Our dual purpose search allows you to search your mail or search the web in just one click. So if you’re in the middle of composing a calendar invite for a lunch meeting and want to search the web to find a cool spot nearby, just enter your query into the search box and select Search Web to open a new tab in your browser with your search results.
Composing an email should be both personal and productive. With Yahoo Mail, our Compose lets you create and enhance your message with beautiful link previews and formatting options. Plus with Dropbox and Flickr integration you can attach files, documents and photos quicker than ever.
Your inbox isn’t just convenient, it’s a great way to stay connected to the people who matter most. Yahoo Mail makes it easy to locate and email the right person when composing a message. As you type a name on the To, Cc, or Bcc line, Yahoo Mail will recommend a list of the most relevant people and contacts for you to choose from. After you select the first person, Yahoo Mail will suggest other people you tend to email with that person, making it faster to email groups together.
Send files with confidence. With 1TB of free email space, you never have to worry about sending or receiving large files in your inbox and running out of space. Easily attach photos or documents from your computer by clicking on the paperclip icon, or from your Flickr or Dropbox by clicking on the drop-down menu. You can also drag and drop files from your computer into the Compose area and watch them attach in no time.
Plain blue links aren’t too exciting on their own, but they often lead to the most interesting content in an email. Yahoo Mail offers a preview of that link, whether it’s a photo, video, or article, right in your inbox. Now when you are sending or receiving a link via email, it becomes a visual, informative experience.
Everyday, millions of people send and receive attachments in Yahoo Mail. Quickly preview your Microsoft Office attachments (Word, PowerPoint and Excel) and Adobe PDFs right on your message view. Click on the file name and — voila! — you’ll see a full preview of your document.
Yahoo Calendar has the tools you need to help manage and organize your busy schedule.
Get reminders for birthdays, anniversaries, appointments, and never forget an important event again. With Yahoo Calendar, you can create calendar entries by clicking on the time and date when the event will be occurring. Add the event title, location and select Add More Details to see options to invite people to the event or to add an alert reminder.
Your calendar automatically identifies your current location to give you the most up-to-date local weather. While viewing your daily, weekly or monthly calendar, click the weather icon to see a beautiful Flickr photo depicting your local weather conditions with the forecasted high and low. Click on the photo to see more weather information like the weekly weather forecast, sun and moon phases, wind and pressure, and more at Yahoo Weather.
Some people use their Calendar to manage their personal appointments, their work and school schedules, and their family events. We’ve made it easy for you to create and label calendar entries so you can quickly keep track and manage multiple parts of your life. To create a new Calendar, simply click on the gear icon next to Calendars. Name and pick a color theme for your new calendar, then Save.
Keep in touch with your personal network. Our two-step import feature allows you to add contacts from your Facebook account or other email providers like Gmail or Outlook, making it simple to switch email accounts.
On each contact’s profile, you’ll find a snapshot of your most recent interactions with them including messages, photos, and files. So if you’ve had a long email thread with a friend about an upcoming vacation, simply navigate over to your contacts and select your friend’s name to quickly see the latest emails and attachments they’ve sent you about the trip.
Maintain and organize all of your contacts in one place. In the Contacts section, click Import Contacts and select the provider you want to import your contacts from: Facebook, Google, Outlook, another Yahoo account or upload a .csv or .vcf file.
Yahoo Mail gives you the most free storage of any email provider. With 1TB of free space (that’s 1000 GB!), you’ll never have to worry about deleting emails to save space.
1 TB Storage
Keep all the emails and files sent to you. To check how much storage you have, go to Settings, and under Accounts you’ll see the percent of storage you’ve used.
Yahoo Mail uses the leading security technology to help keep you safe online. SSL encryption keeps your mail secure as it travels between your computer’s web browser and Yahoo’s servers. This means no matter where you are, whether you’re at home or browsing your mail in a coffee shop, your mail information is kept safe.
Anytime you use Yahoo Mail - whether it’s on the web, mobile web, mobile apps, or via IMAP, POP or SMTP - it is 100% encrypted by default and protected with 2,048 bit certificates. This encryption extends to your emails, attachments, contacts, as well as Calendar and Messenger in Mail.
Yahoo Mail blocks over 15 billion spam messages daily. We use machine learning and constantly tune and improve our filtering technologies that block spam and other malicious emails you do not want to see. You can help train the filters by clicking on the Spam button every time you encounter unwanted emails in your inbox.
