Can we go back to Classic Mail?

With this new Yahoo Mail I can no longer print an e-mail clearly - or on just one page! Can't we please go back to Yahoo Classic Mail?! It is so frustrating and wasteful trying to get a decent hard copy of my e-mails now.


Do I have to change my address, as some of my friends have?

    Yes, here's some help! You can go back to Classic Mail as I found a way back to classic mail, and it is permanent!

    No, you do not need to change your address you can keep the same one.

    When you get to the web site below click on where it says: However, if you do not want to upgrade, please click hereto use Yahoo! Mail Classic.

    Read this: and use the blue link for switching back to Mail Classic.

    In case you want to switch without reading everything, this is the url for the blue link mentioned above:

    If the above doesn't help...

    The current version replaced "All New Mail" - now it's either that or Yahoo Mail Classic...

    Once you have the new Mail Regular, you will no longer be able to switch back to All New Mail and/or see a switch-back link to Mail Classic, but I'm slightly visually impaired and found an interesting workaround a few weeks ago to at least get back to Mail Classic: lower your screen resolution, and as soon as it's too low for the new mail, you will get a message displayed asking if you want to switch to Mail Classic. Click "yes". Of course you can switch back to your original screen resolution once you have mail classic back..:-)

    Another option: turn off Javascript - you'll then be asked if you want to return to Mail Classic, click "yes".

    In case you don't know how to turn off Javascript...

    For IE: tools -> internet options -> security. In security click "custom level" -> disable active scripting in the scripting section. Remember to turn Javascripting back on when you are back in Mail Classic since without it some mail functions won't work

    For Firefox: tools -> options -> content, click on "disable Javascript". Now hit F5 to refresh the page while you are in yahoo email in order to kick in the option (permanent) to switch back to classic. Do not click on the "one time" option.

    EASY SOLUTION: change you're screen resolution TO THE LOWEST by clicking right click on you're desktop then go to personalize, setting and after that LOG IN into you're yahoo account and check you're mail while having the lowest resolution active on you're screen and yahoo will ask if u want to change into the old version of the mail and click yes. done
