Hello,

There are two places that control the preview pane options in the new Yahoo Mail.

The first is the Actions drop-down on the menu bar above your inbox:

The second is a preview pane toggle within the Mail Options:

Hi Starmk,

There is a blue text link near the top right of the Yahoo inbox that can be used to switch to the full featured version of Yahoo Mail.

Does it work from a different web browser? If you usually use IE or Firefox, try the other one, or Chrome.

Hello,

Please try these troubleshooting steps:
  • Close any tabs that are open to Yahoo sites.
  • Delete your cookies and clear your web browser cache.
  • Restart your web browser.
By cleaning up your web browser you may fix an incompatibility issue with Yahoo.

Yahoo might also block your access to the Full Featured email for these reasons:
  • You are under 13 years old
  • You are using a dialup connection to the internet
  • You have javascript disabled in your web browser
  • Your screen resolution is too small
Could any of those rules be the problem?
