bring back classic mail
Please change back to the classic Yahoo Mail! There are certain features that I can't do on the current version that I could do in the old classic mail version, such as dragging an email to a folder. How am I now able to do that?! I am frequently dragging things to folders, and it is imperative that I have this feature re-instated.

I want the old Mail back! The new layout, etc. absolutely STINKS. What kind of complete corporate moron literally does what their paying customers do NOT want and forces it upon them? Does Yahoo think they're going to attract smartphone users with this new stupid look? Mobile users don't use Yahoo Mail!! Ye gods, the new system has by far some of the worst user interface design elements I've ever seen (UID was my speciality years ago), not to mention the oodles of bugs people have cited. Why has the exact count of emails in the Drafts folder gone? Of what use is the ridiculous 999+? Does Yahoo think people are scared of big numbers or something? Are they aiming this at 5yr olds? I could list dozens of other examples of Stupid, but I'm sure everyone here already knows about them.
Yahoo, bring back the old Mail and stop being a ******* to your customers! I *pay* for this service, I want what I was paying for! If you want to give us a choice, fine, do that, but forcing this garbage on your users is completely insane. Also, fire the idiot coders who wrote this rubbish and clearly never bothered testing it! And force them to use a normal desktop to do the testing!

This "new" update has so many flaws, it should not have been released and forced on users. While typing e-mails the update does not keep up with average typing speed and stalls, forcing the user to click at the last character accepted and start typing again. When typing long e-mails, the update tosses the user to the top of the screen so the user can not see what is being typed. This was a very bad update.

Bring back classic. This one is not working for me. Where are the formats of the letters? Where the active links? Why did you get rid off the functionalities? Bad move!!!

BRING BACK CLASSIS MAIL, I'M SICK OF THE NEW ONE

Please bring back the old Classic Yahoo email outlook. Up until a few days ago, there was still an option to select it, not it is gone. Why do you force me to use something I don´t want to use? I didn´t want to consider this until now but I think it´s high time I left Yahoo mail for another mail provider which gives choice to people and doesn´t take options away from them.

BRING BACK THE OLD MAIL. I have google chrome and it still gave me this **** you call mail. You can't even change the font size.

This new version is of no use and it is not even tested before implementing. I don't know who is the master behind this implementation and who approved it. May be everyone was forced to implement this new version. Any new version will have advanced features comparing with older version, in this case it is not even met 10% of the older classic version. Thanks for allowing user to chose another domain to create new email id's. Three cheers to YAHOOOOOOOOO.....

La Rubrica non funziona più!!!! Siete una vergogna allucinante!!!!! Chi ha avuto la brillante idea di mettere questo schifo di orribile mail!!! VOGLIO TORNARE ALLA MIA MAIL PRECEDENTE!!!!!!!!!!!! LICENZIATE I RESPONSABILI!!!!!!!!!
Make it the way it was. It's obvious everyone hates the new email. Or do these comments just go no where and you really don't care? I hate the ads at the top of my inbox. They are offensive, confusing and clutter my UI with useless, shameless ads. Every time I see an add I make a mental note never to buy anything from that company. Ever!
Go back to the old. Or I'm out!
You guys really screwed up. Just read how every single post below is negative!!! Don't you get it? You guys are supposed to be smart. Or don't you care? You'd rather reap the money for offensive ads and a horrible interface and UI at the expense of your users. What will you do when you have no more users left?

THIS NEW MAIL IS ****. BRING BACK THE OLD MAIL YOU *****. YOU TRIED THIS A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO AND COPPED FLACK. WHY WOULD YOU DO IT AGAIN??????????

I miss being able to scroll through all of my emails. Needing to click through one page at a time is much more cumbersome and time consuming. Please bring back scrolling!

Let my mail alone.
can`t do nothing with this new style what`s wrong with you people
Bernie Cook commented
The best suggestion I have for you is to fire the IT department and hire people who know how to desk check their work before putting it into production. This new version sucks and YAHOO with it!

I've had this email address since 1996 and used it almost daily since that time. One of the few thing that kept me here, aside from not wanting to use gmail for my personal email, was the functionality of classic mail. Features such as single key shortcuts for reply and delete. You how now removed this in the name of progress. I n the name of progress you have negated 23 years of loyalty s I will now be looking for a new mail client. Good day.

Revenir à l'ancienne version, celle-ci est une aberration

I have just encountered a bug with text entry I now have to type blind because it doesn't echo my text on the screen.
Ilse Krassnig commented
New version: if I type the name, mail address does not appear automatically any more (I have to type the complete and correct address what is terribly unefficient)and I also can't add screenshots and more). Why did you change it? It worked well.
