You probably are now on the newest Regular Mail rather than Classic, since many users have complained about the small print with that version. If you were using the middle version ('All-New'), it has been deleted completely, and been replaced with the newest, formerly called Beta. The only other choice is Classic Mail ... there are no problems with print size in it. Of course, you could just change the print size for the entire page with simple commands - usually Windows remembers the setting when you close the page. (from easiest to slowest), take your choice: 1. Hold the Ctrl key and move the scroll wheel slowly ... away from you to enlarge, towards you to shrink. On a laptop touchpad, use Ctrl and finger down. 2. Hold the Ctrl key and click + or + + to enlarge, and - or - - to shrink. (On Windows 7, use the Windows key and + or -, not Ctrl.) 3. Click View at the top > Zoom > Zoom In or Zoom Out (the keyboard shortcuts in #2 are there as a clue if you forget them) Note: If you are using Internet Explorer 9, Chrome, or Firefox 4-6, the Menu bar will not appear unless you click the browser icon. The easiest way to switch back to Yahoo Classic is to use one of the following links each time you open your mail - save the Bookmark as a Favorite. (If your account is registered in another country other than the US, the links starting with http://us.mc598--- should be changed to your country abbreviation.) Use any of them every time you visit Yahoo Mail, and you will get the Classic version! http://mrd.mail.yahoo.com/switchclassic (might be a permanent change) http://us.mc598.mail.yahoo.com/mc/welcome http://us.mc598.mail.yahoo.com/mc/launch (This link is faster.) You may still get messages to update, but Yahoo says they will soon stop - the countdown deadline keeps getting extended. In the small print there should be a very small link choice near the bottom to make the change permanent, or decline the change. If all else fails, try contacting Yahoo! Customer Service, but you will need to be persistent to talk to a human, and must 'insist' on switching versions, even if they say at first that it cannot be done. Warning - the lines are very busy almost all the time. Or click Help, then Contact us ... wait for a human. USA (6am to 6 pm, Pacific Standard Time) 1-866-562-7219, 1-800-318-0631, Yahoo Personal Email: 1-866-492-4664 (less known, so more chance to talk to a human)
Contrary to some other contributors there are still several working links to get mail classic at this time however I feel I should only mention one at a time so the yahoo enforcer squad does not close them all down at once. Beware the flying monkeys. You should try this link http://mrd.mail.yahoo.com/switchclassic this should give you classic mail version, best to bookmark link new mail may reset after closing. Don't get used to it, the notice is out basically switch to new or get lost, if your computer not up to new they will have a very basic version, will not be surprised if turns out to be similar to classic, but they seem to plan to make getting there difficult. How do you feel about the new homepage and mail? Let them know at http://feedback.help.yahoo.com/feedback.... , if we don't complain they believe we accept the change, we all lose.
Classic IS the "old standard" Yahoo Mail. What you've been switched to, is the new Yahoo Mail (Beta version). Yahoo has promised---(if you can believe anything they say)---that Classic will remain an option for those of us who don't want to (or can't) use the new version. To permanently get back to the "old standard" (which is Classic)---try this. Just lower the page "resolution" to the point where it won't support the Beta version. FIRST----Go to>>your desktop and right click on it>>click on "properties">>click the "settings" tab>>and lower the resolutions>>click OK (and/or "apply"). You "may" then be required to restart your computer. THEN-----Once you've gone back to your mail page ---you will be told that your resolution is too low and asked if you want to switch to Classic as the "default" or "permanently"---(DO NOT click the "one time only"). AFTER changing your mail page back to Classic---- GO BACK and return the page resolution to normal, (so things will continue to work). ********************************* In Classic you will STILL get the Prompts to upgrade (for a while)---but just click "No Thanks" OR "I want to stay on Classic" (teeny writing bottom of page). Eventually the prompts will stop (per Yahoo)
Hello there, A number of people are asking the same question with similar concerns. There are only TWO versions of Yahoo! Email left, Classic and the new Regular. All the other Yahoo Email versions Yahoo! has dropped and eliminated. They no longer exist, and I have not found any links to go back to them. The only old version that you can return to is Yahoo! CLASSIC. There still are several options available for you. #1) These THREE links are still working today, August 14, 2011 and will RETURN and launch your email back to the ORIGINAL Classic Mail, but you may need to continue clicking on the links each time you log in. It would be good to 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/welcom... http://mrd.mail.yahoo.com/switchclassic If you click on the link and it does not automatically open up to Classic mail, copy & paste the address from your browser into a new window, and press enter. A number of people have told me the links DO continue to work for them. As I was checking to see if they were still functioning at a friend’s, one of those links above launched into a full page of advertising for the new mail, in the small print ¾ of the page down and to the right there was an option to click that said ‘Return to Classic’. I immediately took a screen shot and saved it as a picture, and I had another friend do the same. The second photo is the Canadian version. This is what it looks like: https://sites.google.com/site/classicyastuff/ (This link takes you to a site I MADE to share with you so that you could see what the screen looks like and WHERE to click). These links make the ‘choose this option’ come up, and MAY work for you if you have only logged into the new email ONCE otherwise they do not work at all or will only open the new Yahoo! mail: Launch to choose new or stay with Classic Canada Yahoo link: http://ca.mg2.mail.yahoo.com/neo/ Launch to choose new or stay with Classic USA Yahoo link: http://us.mg2.mail.yahoo.com/neo The report from Yahoo! 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 August 27, 2011. #2) I have a Yahoo! Plus account, there is a built in OPTION there (that is NOT in the free Yahoo! accounts) to switch back to Yahoo! Classic, which I have done and it remains, and perhaps that is an option for you. The Yahoo! Plus account is $19.99 (US) a year. #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, Katie M, who posted a very good answer that addresses browsers and Windows here on Yahoo! Answers to help you switch back. From what other Yahoo! users have email to me and from what I have read on some other Yahoo! 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. Let Yahoo! know that you would like the original Yahoo! Classic instead of the new. http://feedback.help.yahoo.com/feedback.php?.src=YAHOOMAIL&.done=http://mail.yahoo.com If you would like to keep working with the new mail there are a number of things you can try. Update your Adobe Flash Player, and Java script. Check for updates for your Windows. Check for updates for your browser (s) Internet Explorer (IE), Safari, Google Chrome, Modzilla Firefox etc. Clear out your cache, cookies, temporary files and browsing history. The easiest method to clean out those files is press simultaneously Ctrl, Shift and Delete keys while your browser window is still OPEN. This also deletes your passwords and banking information. Or view this page for further information: http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cache You may consider trying an alternate browser. Hope that helps you. Barbara
I liked the old version also, but by mid-October you won't have any choice concerning Yahoo mail. It is what it is and switching back won't be an option after mid-October 2011. You might as well stay where you're at. The advise given to you may be great, but when I tried to save the Mail Classic page on the link you give (did that before I even read your suggestion days ago) it kept saying "an error has occurred please try again later" and I still can't save the mail classic and I am able to save other things. I was told by Yahoo that we will not have the option to save the Mail Classic by mid-October. The first link this person has mentioned is permanent, the NEW YAHOO MAIL if you've already switched to it so thats not a good link at all. The other 2 links I keep getting "an error has occurred please try again later" when I try to save the to my bookmarks under "Favorites". I don't think Yahoo wants anyone to have Classic mail. There is a place to click on before you do switch where you can keep the "Classic Mail", but thats before you switch over. Good luck calling Yahoo too by the way. If you're having better luck then me good job!!! Yahoo Customer Care by the way, if you have AT&T for an ISP, will send you an e-mail for you to contact AT&T with any mail issues, passing the buck". When I contacted Yahoo Customer Care for this mail issue and switching back to Classic Yahoo told me to contact AT&T and AT&T told me it's a Yahoo issue........more "passing the buck". Good luck and hope you have alot of spare time to waste waiting to talk on the phone to Yahoo.
