14585Re: Why does Yahoo Mail show WAP version on Nintendo Wii's web browser?
- Nov 30, 2007Okay I tried logging in with an account that I had set up to go to
Yahoo Mail classic and going to http://mail.yahoo.com and that worked.
Going to http://mail.yahoo.com in my account that is set up to go to
the new Yahoo Mail, redirected to
http://us.m.yahoo.com/p/mail?tsrc=rawmail which if you go to that page
in any web browser you can see is the WAP version since it's very
I then switched that Yahoo account to use the classic version by
default and then loaded it up in my Wii Opera Browser and it displayed
the classic version.
So the problem is that if the user chooses to use the new Yahoo Mail
and loads the mail page on a Wii, instead of reverting to using the
Classic Mail page, it just goes to the WAP Mail page. The fix for
this would be to go to the classic page instead of the WAP page.
In the meantime I found a work around. Go to
http://us.mg1.mail.yahoo.com/ym/login?ymv=0 and then bookmark that
page. That URL forces the classic page to load. Just load the
bookmark when you want to use Yahoo Mail.
On a side note, I can go to Gmail on the Wii and it works perfectly.
Like Yahoo, GMail uses AJAX so obviously AJAX will work on the Wii
