Before Yahoo went full speed ahead with their identity crisis (Is Yahoo still considered a search engine?) they had some swell offerings, one of them being Yahoo Mail (now referred to as Yahoo Classic Mail) which I have always used in combination with my other email accounts and, from time to time, it serves as my main email account.
As usual, the internet giants always find a way to ruin a good thing and Yahoo wasted no time in screwing up Yahoo Mail to the point to where I am trying my fastest to move away from it.
The New and Subdued Yahoo Mail is not user friendly, I have it (it was forced on me a year or two or so ago) and it sucks.
For a more constructive argument I will say that the New and Subdued Yahoo Mail makes it inconvenient to sort e-mails, the act of mass deleting emails was made cumbersome and must have been viewed as criminal in the eyes of the Yahoo overlords, and the current latest version of Yahoo Mail scrolls on its own and feeds mail by loading the latest (or the emails on the bottom of the page as you scroll) which is just nerve racking and ram consuming for some PC’s.
The great beauty and simplicity of Yahoo Classic Mail was that your emails were displayed on a static page which gave you full control. With Yahoo Classic Mail when you scroll down the page there aren’t those dingleberrys that pop up and say “hi” after you thought you had the maximum amount of emails displayed before you start deleting the trash.
The upgrade to the new pimpy version of Yahoo Mail took that control away. At least for me it did. But one day, after fighting with my PC and camping in safe mode for a little while, a voice told me to see if Yahoo Mail would work in the low res environment forced by safe mode and low and behold, I was blessed with an option to switch back to Yahoo Classic Mail … for now and forever.
Yes, yes, I love you too.
