Originally Answered: I WHANT TO GO BACK TO MY CLASSIC YAHOO MAIL?
There is no one out there that doesn't want their old Yahoo back, be it Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Classic Mail. On August 25th my world was turned on its end. Yahoo completely reformatted both Yahoo Mails. When we get back to Classic, we CANNOT get back to the previous version, the one I prefer to call "Wide Layout", It just doesn't even exist.
While all of us repeatedly contact Yahoo about this, there are quite a few things that can make your life easier. I will list them here, from answers I've saved (I actually have been using "Notebook" since all of this)
Well, maybe we can all make it through this mess. Yahoo has absolutely made sending emails a nightmare, as well as adding, selecting, changing, altering data. "Contacts" the way we were used to (boy do I ever miss the format !), seems now to be called "Address Book". At least we can see most of our format there, including nicknames and email addresses. Unfortunately, we have to do it each time we need to write an email, but here's how:
Your Yahoo email page
Now "New" = (Compose,) Forward, or Reply
Select from underlined - To, CC, or BCC
Enlarge the Address Book to full screen by dragging the lower right corner
If you wish to see your Categories, here is where you get them, upper right
Make your selections (I prefer BCC for privacy)
Bottom left of page - Input choices
Now your particular contacts are in the email
I always put my email address in the "To"
From another answerer:
If you still want to contact Yahoo about what you do not like about the new contact list, they have a feedback form. Remember it is best to be specific and polite.
1. Select which mail you use, All-New, or Classic Mail on this link:
2. On the help page that opens up click Contact Us button at the top. You will need to sign in.
3. Click the Yahoo Mail or Yahoo "Classic" Mail Feedback form at the bottom of the page and fill it out.
I think the above is the most important.
You can edit contacts on the "Contacts" page by selecting underlined name, choosing "Edit" on top right in yellow on index card, which gives the entire information on the contact. Make changes, additions, and be sure to "Save" upper right, which takes time to load.
In "Contacts" you can sort by last name, first name (who ever thought that one up ?) or email addresses, but in the "Address Book" and "Categories" within it, you will be able to see what is familiar to all of us, the fonts, coloring, and nicknames, email addresses.
I understand your frustrations. One of the best functions about the new "Address Book" from the "Contacts" of today, is that you select the contacts in the actual fields you wish, as many as you wish, and "Insert Choices".
Hope all of this helps.
