The trick is to make Yahoo think you're using an old, unsupported browser: Internet Explorer 6. Here's how to do it on Firefox. You install a plug-in and make the switch. It's a one-time thing that basically tricks Yahoo into thinking that your Firefox browser is actually IE6. After you do this one time, you can use the plug-in to go back to your original browser and that'll be that. I did this successfully on two computers. Here are the instructions: http://www.techtip.org/how-to-switch-back-to-yahoo-classic-mail/

I also thought I'll stay with their old format. But now that they switched to the new one, it's impossible to get the old one back. I never liked it in the first placed - too many ads and too much stuff to go through to get to my email. Indeed I had one account that I hardly ever used. Now I don't even bother checking if I've got mail. I never gave that address to anyone important anyhow.

I have refused and every time I want to log on they make me click continue to the old yahoo mail. But, now they are also giving me a deadline that I must upgrade by Sept 16th, I think that's the date. I'm trying to completely switch over to gmail anyhow. So I want to be done with yahoo already anyways.
