How to switch back Yahoo! Mail to classic version Fri - Nov 2, 2007

Posted by supriyatna in All, Email, Howto, Internet, Yahoo.

New Yahoo! Mail is looks nice but it’s very slow when accessing from my internet connection. Actually you can still switch back to use classic version of Yahoo! Mail. Yes, there is link “Mail Classic” on left upper side of your mail under your Yahoo ID.

But i don’t want to switch back, i just want see in Classic version. So, I use another way to open Yahoo! Mail with classic version without “switch back to Mail classic”, just put this link “http://us.mg2.mail.yahoo.com/ym/login?ymv=0” to address bar of your browser (or bookmark that URL for simple access).

Then whenever i want use New version of Yahoo! Mail, just type http://mail.yahoo.com and i got New interface of Yahoo! Email.

Update 20100108:
You should login first using Yahoo account before typing following address http://us.mg2.mail.yahoo.com/ym/login?ymv=0, once you had logon successful, you didn’t need to wait until browser finished to load the page. Just immediately type that link on the address bar.

Update 20110516
In current release, there is an option to return into Yahoo! mail classic. This can be access from “Help” menu and then select “Return to Original Mail”

Update 20110729
Unfortunately, Yahoo has removed “Return to original Mail” option from “Help” menu. So now there is no way to switch back to classic version. But don’t worry i have found another way to open Yahoo Mail in classic version, bookmarks (CTRL+D) this link https://login.yahoo.com/config/login?.done=http://us.mg2.mail.yahoo.com/ym/login?ymv=0

Now, once you login using that link it will be redirected to Yahoo Mail classic, enjoy!

I have been having problems, (not accessing my email) but clicking on to send an email. When I try to go to contacts, there’s no response.

Hi James, i can added an email address by click “To” button. Probably you have a lot of contact persons so it’s looks hang/no response. I thought Yahoo will download all contacts and cached them to local computer so next you access the contacts it will show much faster.

There is no “switch back to Mail classic” or “Return to Original Mail” under options in Yahoo mail, why?? email me responses to nicklla@yahoo.com

supriyatna - Mon - Jun 13, 2011

It looks they have remove the link/option for revert back to Classic version. I thought this is because they already moved from Beta stage, but you still can access old/classic version by accessing this url http://us.mg2.mail.yahoo.com/ym/login?ymv=0

Unfortunately, the option to return to the “Original Mail” is no longer there. Its just like mandating everyone who had ever switched to continue to remain there. Just sukcs

Click Tools; Options; Content; Remove Check Mark from Enable JavaScript.
Click OK.
Close and Restart Firefox.
Go to Yahoo Mail.
The following message appears: Yahoo recommends you upgrade your browser to enjoy all the features in the new Yahoo Mail.
Click Continue without upgrading.

Click Continue without upgrading JavaScript.
Yahoo Mail Classic will appear.
JavaScript will be needed to click or remove Check Marks from selection boxes, so Click Tools; Options; Content; and insert a Check Mark in Enable JavaScript.
