I have been using yahoo mail since 1997.
For several months, yahoo has tried to force me to create a user profile. I never created one.
This morning, I was somehow lured into choosing a theme for my inbox. This automatically changed my account to the new yahoo for me, without any consent from me.
I, like many others, do not agree with this change and do not want it.
I want to undo the change... or if not, please recommend a different reliable email provider for me.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You should have no problem getting one I have several. You just go to Yahoo.com and look in the top right hand corner of the page. It will say three things. My yahoo/Sign in/and Mail. Just click on the Mail and sign up to get a yahoo email account and this will also sign you up for the rest of yahoo. you just simply use your email address and password to sign in to other yahoo programs such as yahoo messenger and your yahoo profile.
If you use Yahoo! as your Web mail provider, you're not
Created in 1997, Yahoo! Mail still ranks as the most popular
email provider in the United States, according to data from Experian Hitwise at
the time of publication.
Although much has changed since Yahoo! began providing
email, the simplicity of logging in has not.
Navigate to the Yahoo! Mail homepage.
Click on the first text box, and enter your full Yahoo!
You don't need to include the "@yahoo.com"
portion, but you can if you want.
Enter your password in the second text box.
Your password is case-sensitive, so remember to capitalize
it exactly as you did when you set up your account.
Click "Sign In" to log in to your Yahoo! Mail
If you haven't signed in to your Yahoo! Mail account in over three
months, your free account will be deactivated. If this happens, in
order to access Business Mail, you must reactivate your Yahoo! Mail
account. When you try and sign in to your free Yahoo! Mail account,
Yahoo! Mail should give you the option of reactivating your account.
Select the "Reactivate your Yahoo! Mail address" radio button to
continue using your free Yahoo! Mail account.
If the previous is not possible, you have the option of creating a new Yahoo Mail account.
For future reference, you can open an AOL email account. When you first activate your AOL account you will be asked if you want to import all of your contacts and information from another account. (Like yahoo mail for example) Click yes and follow the prompts. This is a good backup method to store your contacts and other information.
In some cases the users are not able to read or see the incoming mail. In that case situation the user might receive the mail to spam folder or to the junk mail. So for that user can create filters for their incoming mail so just follow the step:
•Login to your mail account.
•Go to the "settings" of the folder
•Click on the option of "Filters" appears on the left side.
•Sort incoming emails in the respective folder.
•Provide the name of the filter.
•Choose the components for filters.
•Click on Save.

I've had similar problems intermittently across several computers, several countries, and several browsers over several months. Opening and closing an email doesn't help, but coming back to it later usually does.
Other people reported in online forums that going to Options>Mail Options and toggling the Mode between color graphics/plain text helps, but the problem comes back. I tried this today and it did work, but that's the limit of my experience.
The problem is obviously at the Yahoo end. I've sent inquiries to Yahoo and had no reply. They need to communicate with their customers, even if it's simply "we know, and we're working on it".
Please reinstall the Yahoo messenger and make sure to install the latest version.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

The problem is that in order to use Yahoo email on a Outlook, POP3 or HTTP, Yahoo asks you to get Yahoo Mail Plus. They are forcing you to pay for 19.99 a year to be allowed a POP3 account to use for your Outlook 2003 and mail forwarding.
I've tried several methods, even trying HTTP: mail.yahoo.com
Ive even used software that said it would allow this. But no luck.
POP3 is only provided and activated by YAHOO when you pay for the yearly subcription.
Sorry. Thats really the only solution there is to this because yahoo controls their services to every user.
