Are you using the new Yahoo email? If so, you'll want to return to Mail Classic.

When you sign into your account, click options on the right hand side, then click switch to Mail Classic.

The old version will be restored and you wont have these problems again.

I hate the new Yahoo mail -- I want the old mail back. I cannot use categories to send out email notices to my groups without having to check each individual. There is no option button along the top of the...

In Contacts tab, you can easily create a new List. Give the list a name, and then drag whicvere Contacts you want into it. When you start a new mail, you can enter the List name, and every Contact in that List is automatically added.

Yahoo has specifically disabled the "return to classic mail" link on the New Mail interface. This is to discourage people from going back, as the old mail interface may eventually be removed completely, and all users will be forced onto the new one.

Here is the explanation page from Yahoo Help:

However there is a possible workaround to get back to Yahoo old mail. Open your browser (Firefox 5) and go to Tool-->Options-->Content, and UNcheck the box marked "Enable Javascript." This will disable Javascript from running in that browser. Then try to log into your Yahoo mail account. You should get an error message from Yahoo that your Javascript is disabled- ignore that, and continue to log in to your Mail account. Supposedly, you will be given the option to return to the old mail interface. If that occurs, go ahead and log in. You should then go back and re-enable Javascript, or your mail, and many other websites, will not function correctly.

Let us know if this works.
