Question about Yahoo Mail

2 Answers

I'm getting a silly error message from yahoo mail - "There seems to be a screen resolution problem." My screen rez is 1280 x 800 on my Dell laptop. That seems to be a very reasonable rez for yahoo mail. What's the problem.

The issue is the Yahoo Beta Mail is optimized to use a specific screen resolution. If you are having issues and are using IE 8, try the Compatibility View feature (it's the broken page icon located next to the REFRESH button on the toolbar.) Clicking the icon might resolve your issue. It's not an issue with your screen... it's an issue with how Yahoo! designed their site. Hope this helps!

I do not like the new yahoo mail, it is much harder for me to see ......please return me to yahoo mail classic


hello there,
I also do not like the new version of the Yahoo Mail.. So I researched and found this
Yahoo Classic
and it helped me get back to the Classic mail
The part there that helped me is the part where you lower your screen resolution to the lowest. The difference is, I already have the Yahoo Mail. So after I logged in, I got the error message saying that my computer has a bad resolution. What I did was, I clicked the link on the "lower right side of the page" that says Return to a previous version of Yahoo! Mail It changed my yahoo mail to classic. I logged out. Change my resolution to the highest. logged in on my yahoo email. There, I still have the classic yahoo..
Hope this works for you!

I can't read my yahoo mail because when I'm in yahoo the first "column" stretches the entire width of the screen. So, the slider is at the very right of the screen. Any ideas? Steph


Most netbooks have 1024 x 600 pixel display. While there are certainly a few exceptions, most Windows apps can run reasonably well at that resolution and most web pages are viewable with a minimal amount of scrolling. But for some reason, Yahoo Mail isn't one of them. For the past few years, every time I've tried to check my Yahoo Mail account using a netbook, I've been greeted with a message suggesting I use the "classic" interface instead of the newer, more streamlined version.

Unfortunately, like the previous version of Yahoo Mail, the new Beta suggests a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768 - which means most netbooks are left out. Rather than acknowledge the fact that this is a common resolution and maybe Yahoo's coders should tweak the site to work within it, Yahoo Mail Beta instead pops up an error message when you try to visit with a netbook browser, suggesting you adjust your screen resolution in your computer's display settings - even though many netbooks don't really offer the option.

Also it can be a Yahoo Mail version.

To switch from the All-New Yahoo! Mail to Yahoo! Mail Classic, in the upper-right portion of the All-New Yahoo! Mail screen, from the Options menu, select Switch to Yahoo! Mail Classic.
265-0000003348.jpg A dialog box might appear asking for feedback. If it does, you can follow any links or check any boxes in the dialog box. To continue returning to Yahoo! Mail Classic, click Switch to Yahoo! Mail Classic.

Getting error msg " opening page about blank"


If after signing in to Yahoo mail you get 'opening page about:blank', this is a screen resolution issue. This problem is not caused by a virus, trojan, spyware or anything like that! Yahoo have been making changes to the appearance of their home page and also their e-mail. As a result, the screen resolution of 800 x 600 on many PCs will no-longer allow you to sign in. Try changing your screen resolution to 1024 x 768
