    New Yahoo Mail

    Anyway to transfer back to the old Yahoo Classic ?

    I have "googled" the issue but most possible solutions are outdated. One older solution was changing the screen resolution which supposedly transfers back to the Classic but this did not work.

    I personally have not experienced any issues with the new Yahoo Mail as stated below, but just prefer the Classic format.

    Not only a lousy 'redesign', also "scanning communications content"....

    And of course they sent an email to all users informing in detail about the scanning & the socalled Ad Interest Manager ...not.

    Saw the below article today. However, would not work for me. Anyone with further info to return to Classic, please post.

    [QUOTE]Yahoo’s new mail is annoying a lot of people. Part of this is because people don’t really like it when changes this big happen overnight, while another part can be blamed on all the bugs that have been reported over the past week.

    For everyone that wants to find a way to get the old Yahoo mail back for a while, there’s a really easy trick for doing so.

    Once you are logged into your account, the URL ends in “” right between a series of numbers that vary between users and login sessions.

    In order to get the old Yahoo Mail back, you simply have to go to the URL bar and replace “launch” with “search”. Thus, the URL should now look as follows “” (obviously still surrounded by various other numbers).

    Once this is done, you’ll find yourself on the “Search” tab and can quickly go to the “Inbox” tab in order to view all messages.

    Yahoo Mail works as it used to, with mails opening up in different tabs, the folders are visible to the side and so on.

    I found one fix to a problem I had. I liked the ability to sort by sender.

    Well, it's gone now in the conversations mode (where they organize by conversation). If you turn off that option in the settings, Yahoo Mail goes back to almost exactly the way it was before.

    Good info, dirty.

    I went to settings/view email/select basic and it returns to almost the same. Feel like a dummy for not noticing earlier.
