Hello there!

NEW for August 2012:

These temporary links still work to get back to Classic, but must be used EACH time you log into Yahoo! mail:

Turning the Javascripting on, and then off also works, and I have found a method for ALL browsers including IE.
Directions on how to do that to follow soon.
Have a great day

Barbara

TWO NEW DIRECT Link to help page, NO longer offering resolutions as of the end of July 2012 :( 

http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?locale=en_US&y=PROD_ACCT&page=content&id=SLN4993&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=133052755220 

(Updated February 28, 2012) This link is less confusing, and does not give all the 'it's better to go to the new'.

http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN3254&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=1330590796035&locale=en_US&y=PROD_MAIL_ML                                                    (Updated May 3, 2012) Useful as it gives a way back to the new Yahoo! mail, if you don't want the Classic after all.


OLD link started to work again by March 10, 2012 and is being referred to: http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&y=PROD_MAIL_ML&locale=en_US&id=SLN3254

Copy and paste the link above, or click on it with your mouse. It takes you to the New Yahoo! help pages. The link there should take you straight to Yahoo! Mail Classic, but if it does not one person said it looks like the picture below and another said they clicked on the go to the new email by accident and got this same screen and it looks like this:

The report from various Yahoo! users is that you will need to choose EVERY TIME you open your email to stay with Classic mail, and click on the proper link until December 27, 2011. The date changes over the last few months for different people.I am hoping someone will send me a screen shot of the March 2012 upgrade please!

Hello there,

 

Left are only TWO versions of Yahoo! Email, Classic + New Regular. Yahoo! has eliminated all others. Nevertheless, there are SEVERAL options available.

 

Listing many options as each person is unique, and has a different computer running various versions of Windows, different monitors, different preference of browser, variable connections to the internet and capability.

 

---> #1) Click this link to take you to the New Yahoo! Help pages: http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?locale=en_US&y=PROD_ACCT&page=content&id=SLN4993&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=133052755220

(Updated February 28, 2012)


http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN3254&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=1330590796035&locale=en_US&y=PROD_MAIL_ML

(Updated February 22, 1012)


When there, Click the BLUE link, half way down the page under this heading:

What if I don’t want to upgrade to the newest version of Yahoo! Mail?

This is what it LOOKS like: https://sites.google.com/site/classicyastuff/ (Link takes you to a website I MADE to share with you so that you could see what the screen looks like). For some this is a permanent change, for others it is not. On my web site you’ll see numerous screen shots (pictures) with my comments of the various screens over the last few months. Take note as you may see them one day.

 

#2) If the above does not work, then try these THREE links that worked today, April 15, 2012, that’ll RETURN & launch your email to Classic Mail, but you may need to continue clicking on the links each time you log in. Bookmark them, save to your favourites or email them to yourself.

http://us.mc598.mail.yahoo.com/mc/launch http://us.mc598.mail.yahoo.com/mc/welcome http://mrd.mail.yahoo.com/switchclassic

These 3 links, and any others like it are only TEMPORARY fixes.

 

Above links can be altered to YOUR country code, ca for Canada, au for Australia, uk for United Kingdom, etc.

 

If for some reason, these links do not work, please send me an email via the Yahoo! Answers secure email system, and I will send you a different link. (We don’t see each other’s email addresses.)

 

#3 Numerous solutions for various browsers and different versions of Windows people use, this is the best solution. Link to: is http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110711182440AA5aBbB

The link is to an answer given by another person, Anonymous, who posted a very good answer that addresses multiple browsers and Windows here on Yahoo! Answers to help you switch back.

 

From what other Yahoo! users have said & from what I’ve read on some other Answers posts, disabling the scripting and lowering the resolution does NOT permanently work on a number of computer, primarily those running WINDOWS 7. You will need to either disable scripting or lower resolution EACH time you log in. For others it DOES continue to work, running Windows XP, VISTA, and 98.

 

#4 Choice of keep working with the new mail. There are a number of things you can try to make it work better. Update your Adobe Flash Player, and Java script. Check for updates for your version of Windows. Check for updates for your browser (s) Internet Explorer (IE), Safari, Google Chrome, Modzilla Firefox etc. Clear out your cache, cookies, temporary files & browsing history. The easiest method to clean out those files is simultaneously press the Ctrl, Shift and Delete keys while your browser window is still OPEN. This also deletes your passwords and banking information. View this page for information: http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cache

 

#5 I used to suggest purchasing a Yahoo! Plus account, because there USED TO BE an option to go back to Classic, but that option is NOT there anymore. I found that out as I was trying to answer a question for another Yahoo! user. After numerous attempts of trying to reach chat, I was finally able to get through. (More info on web site: https://sites.google.com/site/classicyastuff/ .)

 

Asked during/while they switched it back for my reasons, and that I should provide a list right then & there. Have your list ready to copy and paste into the chat window. You’ll also need to give them answers to your security questions, DOB, alternate email address, cell phone, etc. to confirm you are who you are. I changed the answers to all my security questions since.

Direct link to chat page, you will have to wait for it to load before the chat window shows up: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/forms_index.html;_ylt=AjdqjW6dguEo.zm7Uq_IOqQaYHtG?last_url=http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/migrating/fromclassic/mltamnoswitch.html

 

#6 Consider trying an alternate browser, and let Yahoo! know that you would like the original Yahoo! Classic instead of the new. Email them daily. Link is below.

 

All the best to you, and I hope that this helped you.

Barbara

CHAT:

I used to suggest purchasing a Yahoo! Plus account, because there used to be an option to go back to Classic, but that option is NOT there anymore. On August 15, 2011 after numerous attempts of trying to reach chat, I was finally able to get through. It took over an hour, and with much arguing that, it IS possible to switch the account back to classic view, and THOUSANDS of other people get to stay with CLASSIC and why should I not be able to? Especially when I PAY for my account, and is not the customer always right! The agent switched it for me. J.

They asked during/while they switched it back for my reasons, and that I should provide a list right there and there. Have your list ready to copy and paste into the chat window.

Here is a ready made list that I have made:
