Switch back to the original format.

Switch back to the original format. I've been using Yahoo Mail on my phone which is awesome. The desktop version is confusing, cumbersome, and not helpful. I feel like I've gone back 10 years to Hotmail days. I'm sorry to see that Yahoo has decided to make such a dramatic change to their services. I guess I'll be switching back to gmail

        The new format for email stinks, it opens emails I do not want to open when I close or move the email I am viewing. Please switch back

        I WANT YAHOO CLASSIC BACK. I HATE THE NEW VERSION. NO WARNING OR ANYTHING, JUST A NEW FORMAT. TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!

        Yahoo classic was a great thing, why is it whenever the idiots roll out a new version they forget the big friendly button that says "this is fugly, give me the classic"?

        I do not want to have to switch to Gmail or Hotmail, because I have always liked Yahoo so much better. But, now, Yahoo has caused me to make several errors in responding to business mail which does not give my customers very much confidence in me. I am going to be forced to change. I do not understand what they thought was better about this new format.There are texts and such for messaging. I need a more formal set up for my email.

        Yahoo is going to lose a lot of users. This version is very difficult to see & respond to correctly for business.

        Even when posting you show an appalling lack of guts. Bastards!

        Agreed, let us switch back. Also, many of us didn't upgrade. You "upgraded" for us.

        agreed... Your going to lose me Yahoo... Also, I can't get thru to a real person! And the computer I'm trying to get answers from is a freaking idiot!

        BRING BACK THE OLD SYSTEM, the New email system is AWFUL; get rid of it; absolute rubbish; your customers hate it; Yahoo are you getting the message?

      • ROBERT MENHINICKROBERT MENHINICK commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The new format is WAY too cluttered compared with the old format. Please give the option to keep using the old format.

        The mail screen is now just a mess!

        I also agree with these comments. Please give the option to have the classic page

        I agree with David Barnett's comments below. This advert sitting on top of my inbox emails is extremely annoying. Perfectly happy with the way it all looked before. I'm not going to pay you to get rid of these unsightly adverts. I'd rather buy my own software and ditch Yahoo mail.

      • David BarnettDavid Barnett commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Why did BT Yahoo change the look of my email page without any reference or warning first? I opened today to find it a completely different (not at all user friendly) colour, and emails in the Inbox which appear to be adverts with "s" at the side which I gather means sponsor. What is that all about? I can't even delete them. I preferred it all the way it was but cannot change it back, I've tried everything to do so but it seems there aren't any options that allow this.
