Yahoo mail

They just changed the format and I am having problems. Often what comes up is email from years ago and then have to play around with it to get the current day's mail.

I have no problems but I have kept the classic and refuse to upgrade each time they ask. I even went so far as to bookmark the classic email inbox so if it switches to the new one, I can get my old look back. I find that if I use contacts or something else and go back to inbox, it switches to the new one and I don't want that one.
I logged in one morning and POOF! I'd been changed. I too had kept the classic, but I got changed anyway.
According to FAQs you can't get the classic back. UGH.
I had that problem with email when they did another change a while ago (I don't remember when exactly). I had to sync all my old messages. I put them in a file and started anew.
Not all of us want new and improved!
New is not synonym for improved.

Yeah they say that you cannot get classic back. Anyone having the same problems bringing up the new email page?
I'm good, on the desktop Windows Vista, though Yahoo mail updated without consent or notice. It's different, but no problem. My laptop, which is Windows7, has not updated. It's puzzling not being able to maintain classic.

I also have accounts with gmail, AOL, hotmail, and a few lesser knowns, for different purposes. None of them has been without quirks or irks.
Here's my solution when one of those e-mail providers makes a change I don't like, I just don't pay the billwinking smiley

mmm yahoo... my worst enemy and best friend... for... more than half my life... i have the same account i had when i was 13... now i am 29.. .to give it up would be giving up an important part of my past as i have tons of old emails saved and papers from college

needless to say they have the weakest spam wall in existance (whether that is due to incompetance or making money through spammers is up in the air... possibly both) and in the past couple of months it has gotten weaker still... also they confuse real mail with spam so much its not even funny ... another possible effort to increase direction to spammers.. yes they change their site alot and the newest update always seems to be worse than the old model... this current one they run loads emails 1/10 as fast as the older model

however the home page is my favorite, it keeps me informed, they do great articles through their site with huff post/ap/reuters and the like, the search feature has less ads and from mostly unscrupulous websites unlike google, its linked to my inbox dollars account so every two searches i do earns me $0.01 which adds up over time, the company seems less of an evil empire than google/apple/microsoft because they do not make operating or business software, computers, game systems, or cell phones... as such they could not care less what platform is used to access the site which is quite freeing... and probably the most important thing of all is the name... how can you not like "yahoo" for a name?

in sum the benefits out weigh the consequences though not by an especially wide margin

Actually, the name is exactly why I chose it back in 1997 when I was new online. I've had the same (main) email since then! I have another for business, though.
