Default How to get back the old Yahoo email web page / interface / version

Hello,

Are you having difficultly getting back to an older version of Yahoo Mail?

To force Yahoo to prompt you with the option for the old Yahoo mail interface change your screen resolution to 800x600.

Write down your current setting so you can change it back in a few minutes!

After changing your resolution you'll be prompted with the following page when visiting Yahoo mail :
How to get back the old Yahoo email web page / interface / version-yahoo-mail-classic.jpg
Click the link in the bottom right to get back to the old Yahoo Mail.

Once you have clicked the link you can reset your screen resolution to it's previous setting.

Excellent it worked perfectly. I truly disliked the new Yahoo mail...it was awful inmy opinion and obviously others dislike it as well or they would not make it so difficult to return to the old email.

I have tried this and receive the prompt to change back. But when I click on the "return to previous version" nothing is happening. Doesn's seem to be working. This is also the problems I have been expiercing with the new version. Does not receive my mouse clicks?

Popowich,

Worked perfectly! Thank you!

New Yahoo interface made the page vibrate. Weird. I'd open the page fully out and it would stop for a bit but then would continue. Ugh.

Ok, gonna finish my emailing...

I didn't receive the prompt. I logged out and logged back into my yahoo mail and it still did not prompt that there was a problem. Apparently Yahoo figured this out and it isn't working anymore. I HATE the new mail and will be getting rid of it if there is no way to go back to classic. Are there any other suggestions?

I had the same problem and fixed it by getting this plugin and selecting Internet Explorer 6.

This did work for me-thanks!!! I am including a screenshot of what to do after you download the plugin. I use firefox but had to choose Internet Explorer because that was the only option-but it worked. When it takes you to the log in page for yahoo, log in then it will give two links (one for that log in only and another for indefinite) Choose the second one.

It might also work in Firefox if you go to the options and turn off java-script.

Thanks much - worked for me.

I didn't quite hate the new version, but I thought it was pointless change just for the sake of change. The old format worked fine and I could find my way around because I was used to it. With all the stuff there is to keep up with, why learn new stuff that serves no purpose?

It's similar to Microsoft shuffling the location of things in the menus when they come out with new Windows versions. (And still not fixing things that seem obvious and have been annoying me through several versions.)

I used to work for a division of Yahoo. They uses to do the same thing with organization charts and other intra-company matters. Pointless shuffling. No wonder their business is in trouble.

I've now registered here and no doubt will be back for help navigating the world of tech.

Thanks again.

I hate when they change things I am used to. They usually try to say it's new and improved. I usually beg to differ and prefer the old trusted way of doing it that I'm used to. I guess I'm kinda set in my ways.

I had to remove the link on the above post because it won't work for anyone that just clicks on it. (It brings you to the yahoo mail log in page)

I was having this same problem and could not get any help from anyone. I could not use my contacts list without getting an error message. Finally, went to Tools, Compatability Settings and added Yahoo. That's it! Fixed it! Unbelievable that Yahoo doesn't know to tell people this.

Actually there another to force on the old interface:
What you actually do is change part of the URL after you login.

1) login into yahoo mail as usual.
2) click in the URL line of the web session - look for the word "neo" in the URL
3) change the word "neo" to "mc".....
4) lastly, hit the "enter" key to submit the changed URL.

the "fix" will last the whole session.
