      That from somebody who is using mail.com.

      I am sure it would be more efficient for Chevy to only have one model of vehicle but there is a reason they manufacture the Volt, Corvette and Silverado. And lots of other choices.

      It would be interesting to know just how many of their users are still on Classic and how many of them they believe will be abandoning Yahoo. I don't know about everybody else, but I see this as Yahoo taking away a bicycle and offering me stilts. They are both modes of transportation but there is no comparison regarding functionality and Classic's use of tabs is fundamental to that. (And Classic tabs are more functional in Firefox than IE.) Apparently the new version offers some options, but that would mean learning all new shortcuts with much less functionality.

      There is a reason I don't have stilts!

      It costs money to keep extra versions of the mail running, & they want to focus on the new version. IMO, that's the best way to go.

      Unfortunately, I don't think mail is Yahoo's flagship product. And they offer it for free. And they are clearly willing to give up at least some of their customers.
      Like so many other companies, they are abandoning a great product, and for what? I guess more money. Oh, well. Time to find something else.

      hunh...pretty cavalier with business.

      reminds me of the separatists in quebec...when they first took power in the 70's, montreal was the financial hub of canada.
      yes, really.

      when they came into power, the head offices threatened to leave...
      the new gov't said
      good riddance.

      well, montreal went downhill from there, and now toronto is the financial hub of canada...where most of the business went.

      really good business practice, congratulations yahoo.
      what was the original definition of " yahoo" again ?

      I said this would happen a long time ago! So, this is it.... Either get used to the new mail, or change providers if it's not sufficient for your needs. It's time to make that choice!

      Bringing the New Yahoo! Mail to Everyone


      As of June 3, 2013 if you're using an older version of web Yahoo! Mail you'll be prompted to switch to the new Yahoo! Mail.
      Yahoo! says they'll bring us newer and better versions of Ymail. Well, what if we don't want newer ? How, is it better when the current new Ymail is full of lots of problems ?
