I need to lighten up the background color on my yahoo mail.

That depends on if you are using the new "Theme" b display or the old standard display. If using the new "Theme based display you just hover over the help icon (It looks like a little gear on the right hand side of your yahoo page when you are signed in.) a menu will appear and then select themes. Then in the resulting pop-up window you can choose any of the available background images to use.
If you are using the old standard yahoo mail configuration There is really no setting for the background color in yahoo mail and you will have to choose the default background color in your browser and that depends on what browser you are using. If you let me know what browser you are using I can give you instructions on how to change the background color in most of the different browsers. Hope this helps.

Yahoo (and many others) will not maintain an unused account indefinitely; often only for 2 years. So you will need to create a new account.

Want to have my old look in Yahoo mail. I have to use my mouse to find emotions and attach etc. My old yahoo mail was ciolorful and now it is not and I just want my yahoo mail page to look the way it use...

Yahoo Mail upgraded recently. There is no way to return to the old version.

I would suggest attempting to get used to it, everyone will have to once the transition is fully completed.

Many people are voicing the same concern, but I doubt that Yahoo would listen to these complaints and change the mail program back. They may tweak it a little bit, but I think that's all they would do.

My son cannot get to his new email address

I am sorry but without more information I cant help you or him.
I need to know what kind of email address he has. Is it one of the cheapo free ones from google (gmail) yahoo or hotmail? Or is it a good old smtp email address that you would access from outlook express or windows email program?
windows xp and older used outlook express as a default email program. Vista and newer have a windows mail program somewhat inferior to the old outlook express.

Gmail, yahoo, and hotmail are all browser based and as long as you know your signin and password you can access it from any computer.

My son fixed my yahoo mail up for me i never had one befor i did not know anything about yahoo mail i lost my paper that i wrote it all down on now i cant go to my mail box please tell me how to get a new...

You should be more specific with your problem. If you forgot your password Yahoo asks some personal Information answers and give you back the use of your account.

If you don't know how to check your email follow these steps:
Go to LOGIN insert your account information and click Sign In.

If you want to create a NEW YM account go to Sign Up and register a new account with your desired information and press Create my account. Use information that u remember easy if you forgot you account again.

I am trying to sign in my yahoo email

I used to get yahoo mail on my son's psp original yet when I got a psp go, I couldn't get that. I discovered by accident that I couldn't get to the new yahoo mail using psp go but I can get to Yahoo mail classic using psp go. The weird thing is, I have to keep the classic mail on my computer or my psp won't go there. No biggie. The spell check on the new mail didn't work anyway and I kind or like the classic mail better.

Hope this helps everyone out who had this problem. I know I wasn't alone.

Remember, Yahoo classic not new mail and it has to be on your computer that way otherwise you won't be able to get there on psp.

Probably a software (i.e., Yahoo) problem. One way around this is to get Outlook Express configured on your PC for Yahoo Mail. Yahoo should have instructions for this. If you do this, you can go to Yahoo to delete any mail you don't want to keep. Then, when you open Outlook Express, any mail still in your Yahoo inbox will download to your PC. Outlook Express shows a paper clip where an attachment is present. You would double-click on the mail item to open it. The little window over the main window you just opened shows attachments. If the item is something you want to save, select File, and Save Attachments. Sometimes, on forwarded mail, you have to double-click on that little window to open that item, then save the attachments as above.
