It seems like my new Yahoo mail is freezing or something. Sometimes I can't get the drop down to show the new email option. I want to go back to the basic or classic form to see if it works. How?

To go back to the old Yahoo! Mail, under where it says "Welcome, yourname" at the top of your Yahoo! Mail page, there's a "Switch Back" link. Click "Switch Back" to go back to the old Yahoo! Mail. You will need to make sure that you have pop-ups activated at that time, or you cannot see the switch back box that will come up. The pop-up box will say, "you are about to switch to the original yahoo mail, but before you do, we'd love your feedback" Click on switch to original yahoo mail. You will see your old email back now, on top left side of mail page, or click the MAIL CLASSIC next to the sign out and my account, or on the top right side of mail page
click options, then click switch to yahoo classic.

Let me know, of need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    In the Recent format, you need to Look at the Upper Right hand side.There would be 3 options - Mobile, Options and help.

    Look at the drop down menu for Options. One of them is switch to yahoo mail classic.

    Let me know, if need further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

try this & see if it works for you
How to change back to Yahoo
Log in to your yahoo mail account
In your web browser go to the yahoo mail home page sign in to your account using your yahoo ID and password, then click the yellow sign in button. Once you've successfully logged in you'll see your email folders on the left and the what's new and inbox tabs in the middle.
Choose the mail classic option
On the upper right side of the page there are three links -- Mobile, Options, and Help. Click Options, and when the drop down menu appears, choose mail classic
Confirm that you want to switch back
A dialog box will pop up with two choices -- switch to yahoo mail classic and cancel. If you're sure you want to switch, click the first option; otherwise, choose cancel to keep the new yahoo mail.

Depending on your computer's speed and your internet connection, the switch may take several seconds. When it's completed, you'll be looking at the old familiar yahoo mail classic interface.
