    That's a scam. Don't click on the link or attachment in the body of the message. Get the email deleted right away. You should know Yahoo has discontinued classic mail more than a year ago. You have either the Basic or Full-featured variants to choose from.

    As for Yahoo Messenger, Verizon closed it down in July 2018. There are no plans to replace it.

    Yahoo Classic has been gone for over a year.

    It's no longer possible to switch back to the classic version of Yahoo Mail. It has been discontinued. There are currently 2 versions of Yahoo Mail for desktop web browsers that you can use: Basic Mail and the full-featured Yahoo Mail: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/sln15936.html

    Instant messenger no longer exists. It was closed in July 2018: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN28776.html

    VERY common type of scam. Do not respond.
