Tip & How-To about Yahoo Mail
Something strange happened while browsing at a cybercafe. I logged into yahoo mail on a windows XP system & was told my browser doesn't support the features of the new yahoo mail. Then I was given the option to return to classic mail temporarily or permanently. I chose the latter and right now I'm at home using yahoo mail classic. Here's the trick:
1. Get an old browser version of Internet explorer. The easiest way to do this is to get a copy of windows XP service pack 2 or 3 which comes with internet explorer 6. (the cafe I was in used this).
2. Install XP. You won't want to mess up your PC or laptop just for this so grab something old. You can also use Virtual-PC, VM-ware or any good desktop virtualization software. Do a clean install. Don't install anything else unless it helps you connect to the internet. Don't install flash player or any plugins yet.
3. Go online and log into your yahoo mail account. Yahoo will apologise and give you two options: (i) Return to classic yahoo for this session.....ignore this. (ii) Switch back to classic yahoo mail....second link, click this.
That's it guys...enjoy. I'm going to confirm this on other browsers as well.
