      All you really need to know is that you will lose the classic interface, & must either use the new version or switch to another email provider. The html version they refer to is simply a stripped down version of the new interface for those with older/incompatible browsers & slower computers. You should be fine with Firefox, though.

      U am not sure what tricks you are talking about. I never had to get back. I just never switched.. I continually opted out.. But I don;t see where I can do that now when they start sending they emails to me.

      << I would expect so. The announcement on the blog says that they will detect dial-up or incapable browsers and direct you to an HTML-only (no Javascript) version of the new Yahoo Mail. >>

      I have been wondering what that means. I use XP home and my browser is Firefox version 20.01 This must be the latest seeing they updated it a month or so back,

      And just what is an HTML version?

      Is Classic like that?

      I just wish they'd leave the classic versions alone. If some many want it and like me must have it. Then WHY are they doing this?

      Are they are going to do is push yet more away.

      All the many other email providers out there must be just loving this. they will get more users and Y will have less.

      Whoever is running Y these days must be seriously nuts.

      Not from where I am sitting.

        > what does the " HTML-only ("basic") version of Yahoo Mail" entail ??

        It would be like Classic in that there would be no reliance on JavaScript to create interactive elements in the user interface. This allows the HTML-only version to work with very old browsers, or browsers where the user has deliberately disabled JavaScript.

        > does that mean no images/ fonts/ colors ?

        No, it has nothing to do with the message content.

        The differences would be in things like the re-sizeable preview pane in the regular version that wouldn't be practical without JavaScript. The key is that JavaScript allows interaction that is faster and smoother because it is handled in the browser rather than by reloading the page from the server.
