Want my classic mail back


Yahoo! no longer provides a simple method to switch from its new Mail format back to the old "Classic Mail". But one can still access the Classic format by modifying your browser settings to disable javascript. (The new format requires javascript; and when that is not available, the option to switch back to Classic will become available.)

Here's how to disable javascript in different browsers:
* In Firefox - From the menu bar (at top), go to Tools > Options > Content, deselect the box for "Enable javascript", then click "OK"
* In Chrome - In the menu bar (at top), click on wrench icon to pull down menu, then go to Options > Under the hood > Content settings > Javascript. Select the option for "Do not allow".
* In Internet Explorer - From the menu bar (at top), go to Tools > Internet options > Advanced > Security > Custom. Scroll down to Scripting > Active scripting, select "Disable", then click "OK".

After you have disabled javascript, go to the Yahoo mail page (http://mail.yahoo.com/). You'll see an error message, advising that you need javascript for the new version, and also offering an option to access the old Classic version. That will take you back to the old format.

NOTE: Many websites utilize javascript, and disabling it in your browser will limit your ability to access those sites normally. After you have accessed the Classic version of Yahoo! Mail, be sure to re-enable javascript in your browser.

I want my old version of yahoomail back. The "new" version is no good. How can I do this?


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

Here is the explanation page from Yahoo Help:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/migrating/fromclassic/mltamnoswitch.html


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.
