Hello there, There are SEVERAL options available to you. There’s only TWO versions of Yahoo! Email left, Classic and the new Regular. Yahoo! has eliminated all other versions. #1) THREE links that worked today, September 11, 2011, (I have 3 more if these stop working) that’ll 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. 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 links and it doesn’t automatically open to Classic mail, copy & paste the address from your browser into a new window, and press enter. 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.) A while back 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’. Immediately took a screen shot and saved it as a picture, and I have had other friends do the same. 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). USA & Canadian friends logged in and expected ‘Click here to continue to Classic mail was NOT there. They clicked on everything except for going to the new, and found that clicking on HELP led them to pages that allowed to go to Classic again. 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 September 19, 2011, but the date keeps changing over the last few weeks. #2 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 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, etc. #3 Let Yahoo! know that you would like the original Yahoo! Classic instead of the new. Email them daily. Link is below. #4 Should you choose to 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 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. View this page for information: http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cache #5 Consider trying an alternate browser. #6 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 my profile page.) 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 All the best to you, and I hope that this helped you.

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)
You can switch back to Classic (which is still available). BUT NOT the "All New Mail" which was the one between Classic and the new Beta version. It no longer exists. Classic will remain an option for those of us currently using it AND who don't want to (or can't) use the Beta version---even tho Yahoo has removed the link to go back to it. (they want to force you to use it) Try this bit of trickery to (quickly and permanently) get back to Classic. Just lower the page "resolution" to the point where it won't support the Beta version. 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"---(NOT 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 smoothly. ********************************* 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" (small writing bottom of page). Eventually the prompts will stop (per Yahoo)
Yahoo has discontinued Yahoo Classic. As the article below says once the switch to the new version has taken place you can't go back to the previous version.

The following article has troubleshooting tips for those having issues with the new full-featured email. Fixing common problems in Yahoo! Mail - http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?locale=en... I'm running the new full version of Yahoo mail on an 8 year old laptop running Windows XP SP 3 with 2 gig of memory. The tips in the article above were most helpful. I also needed to make sure I'd downloaded all the latest Windows updates and I did have to install the latest versions of Java and Adobe Flash Player. I had to abandon IE8 because it's the latest version that Windows XP will support and the performance with Yahoo Mail was very poor. I installed the latest version of Firefox, Chrome, and Safari for Windows to see which one works best on my laptop. After these changes Yahoo Mail runs almost as fast as Yahoo Classic and I've had no issues yet. If the new full-featured version of Yahoo mail isn't for you, you should check out Yahoo Basic. Your email is displayed in page view (25 emails per page) and you have the standard First page, Next page, Previous page, and Last page controls.
