OT Yahoo mail Question


L

LouB

Yahoo, in its wisdom(???) has a completely revised mail system.
I have tried it and IMHO it SUCKS.
BUT (very big but) Yahoo has (again, in its wisdom???) given us no way
to get back. They even tell us they want us to use the new version
cause it is "better". But, as I said before, IT SUCKS.
Anyone know how to get back Yahoo mail Classic?

TIA

Yes, it's right there on the page, just click on it. You'll have to
spend a little time looking, they don't make it easy!

Note: sorry, I'm not going to switch to the really awful new mail so I
can tell you how to go back, it's there, you'll have to find it by
yourself....

Mine still shows it. Click the down arrow for options, and it is listed at
the bottom as Mail Classic, just as Paul wrote.

Why would anyone use Yahoo, anyway, unless you like them snooping on
you? It should be opt-in NOT opt-out.

It is not in mine either.
The only options are:
Themes
Mail Option
Messenger Options

and none of those options have a classic mail option.

We have removed the "Return to Original Mail" link from the help menu as
we're strongly encouraging all users to migrate to the newest version of
Yahoo! Mail. We will continue to invest heavily in the latest version of
Yahoo! Mail, further improving it and delivering more compelling
features to our users.

We know that changing to a new interface can seem daunting, so we’ve
done everything possible to make the transition easy. We have created
help pages specifically for users who have recently switched to the
newest version of Yahoo! Mail, highlighting differences that you may
notice: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/migrating/.

We hope you’ll give this new version a try. It’s our fastest version of
Yahoo! Mail yet, with improved protection against spam and advanced
features like in-line photos and videos.

Looks like you're going to have to learn to live with the new mail. I
may just remove myself from Yahoo if they ever force me to the new
format, like you, I don't like it much.

No you can't. Yahoo has made the decision for you what is good for you
on the grounds that its customers are all so stupid they can't make the
decision for themselves!!!!.

Having said so, you have THESE options:

1) Re-install Mozilla version 2 and then login to yahoo portal and your
option will return; The new webmail does not work in Mozilla/FF prior
to version 3;

2) Try to have access to Windows XP with IE6 still installed; Again New
yahoo won't work in IE6;

3) Start using IMAP to access your yahoo mail; this is a free service
which not many people know about; I have been using IMAP for all my
yahoo accounts and IT IS FREE. Don't let people tell you that you have
to pay for this service because YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY AT ALL. Let me
know if you need help hoe to configure this in TB version 2 and version 3.

You have to learn to ignore these nutters here posting things without
checking for themselves. They all have small penises and so it is
affecting their brains. To make things worse, their mum managed to chop
a bit from it when they were still babies on the grounds that it is
circumcision!

Not necessarily!

They will force upon you whether you like it or not. They don't need
your custom anymore because you are costing them more than they can earn
from you.

Bye bye.

3. Buy your own domain and control it from a email program like
Thunderbird or Outlook.
4) Control Yahoo mail using TB version 2 or above without spending a
penny. It is a free service and it is becoming very popular these
days. Outlook, OE or WLM aren't considered good these days so it is not
a good idea to suggest people to use them.

That's why I moved every contact over to Gmail
Yahoo was too slow anyway

That's exactly what I get and I am about to shop for a new reader or
service.

Yep and you have three choices:

1. Live with it.

2. Use another web mail email service

3. Buy your own domain and control it from a email program like
Thunderbird or Outlook.
I agree totally with option 3 given here.

It costs a few pounds a year to register your own domain and about £10
a year to have someone host an email service for you. You then become
independent of any ISP and can use just about any email program of your
choice.

Out of interest I use 1 & 1 for both those services and have found them
reliable.

But don't you eventually get a ton of spam?
