Question about Yahoo Mail
I can not open the attachments and i would like to change to yahoo classic and i dont know how
As I see it, "yahoo classic" no longer exists. (I could be wrong, but it's not immediately apparent on the web page.) If you like having more control over how email is displayed onscreen, I strongly suggest using a mail reader program, such as Outlook Express ("OE") (for Windows XP and before) or a similar program for Apple-based operating systems ("Eudora" comes to mind.)
With OE (or "Live mail" I believe is the newer version for Windows 7 and later) or for any mail reader program, you manually set the server information according to the help menus / answers / FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) of your mail service. Example: for yahoo, you would log into your yahoo mail and click on "help" and search for "Outlook Express" or for "SMTP" or "POP3" in order to learn their server settings. Then it's a (rather simple but *exact*) process of setting your reader's account settings to match what yahoo wants them to be.
WHY would you do this? Simple: control. With a reader program you can "download" your email to your system's hard drive. This means the mail comes *off* yahoo's servers and *onto* your hard drive. It is then deleted from yahoo's servers (unless you click the checkbox options for "keep" / "keep until", etc.) and is now under your control, on your hard drive, where you can do more things more easily (saving attachments, editing text, copy / paste / etc.) You can also *sort* much faster using OE -- sort by subject, +/- alphabetically, by date (descending / ascending = newest to oldest or oldest to newest) or by author (sender of the email) or even by size, attachments, priority, LOTS of options. This comes in handy when you're trying to delete *groups* of emails, like spam or newsletters.
Email readers (like OE or even Microsoft Office's "Outlook") can even be used to auto-sort incoming (POP3) emails into folders so all the jokes you get from Aunt Mary all end up in a "humor" folder or sent straight to File 13 (the trash / deleted folder.) Mail readers can also auto-save drafts and outgoing (SMTP) emails so you have a copy should you need it.
In short, if you're unhappy with web email (I *rarely* use it myself) then I strongly suggest learning how to use an email reader program. They're simple (basically) -- if you can log onto a computer you can set up an email account-- and they avoid a LOT of hassle (unless you're paranoid about people gaining access to your physical hard drive.)
