    Yahoo Mail has 2 versions.

    1. Basic Mail (heading shows sign out and home in the far top right) -

    This is a very basic version for slow internet connections and older computers and operating systems.

    You can switch to Basic Mail from Full Featured Mail as follows.

    Go to the gear menu and select "more settings".

    Click on "Switch to Classic Mail". They still refer to it as "Classic".

    2. Full Featured Mail (heading shows your name, dots, and home in the far top right) -

    You can switch to Full Featured Mail from Basic Mail with the link at the top right.

    You can also switch by going to options and then mail accounts and select it there.

      Wrong, there are THREE versions (you need to have opted in to new mail to use the new mail link) that can be accessed via links.

      https://mail.yahoo.com/neo/b/launch is classic mail. https://mail.yahoo.com/b/ is basic mail. and https://mail.yahoo.com/d/ is new mail.

    This is the official statement Yahoo sent out months ago: Starting January 31st, 2019, the classic version of Yahoo Mail that you’re using on your computer will no longer be available. To ensure continued access to your Yahoo Mail account, you will be automatically upgraded to the latest version of Yahoo Mail or Basic Mail, depending on the compatibility of your computer’s web browser.

    See my comments, but if it is basic (the new version of classic) you're looking for.

    Click the gear icon, click "more settings" near the bottom right. On the middle left "switch to classic mail" should appear

      Try the direct links (I posted the wrong link for classic before, CLASSIC is what they removed not basic)

      https://mail.yahoo.com/neo/b/launch is classic mail. https://mail.yahoo.com/b/ is basic mail. and https://mail.yahoo.com/d/ is new mail.
