      This is an unfair comment and demeaning to anyone who offered up a
      negative opinion. I tried the new email and hated it. Further, I have a
      paid account but will no longer have access to that which I paid for.
      That ought to be a breach of service. It has nothing to do with not
      liking anything new. I watch new films quite often, will try new
      flavours of foods and love finding new recipes. What I object to is
      having anything changed for no discernible reason. If you lease an
      apartment and halfway through the lease you get moved out of the one you
      agreed to rent and into one that is not even remotely like the one you
      paid for, you'd be annoyed. Change for no reason is silly.

      Furthermore, microwaves have been available for home use for decades,
      but you know what? My grandfather never did learn to use one. While I
      have a computer, the monitor elicits cries of 'What an antique!' from
      everyone who sees it. And for the record, I still do not have a smart
      phone and have no intention of ever getting one. I don't need it and
      won't buy one just because it's the 'hot new thing.'

      Linda...very dissatisfied that the Classic I PAID FOR will not be
      available to finish the year subscription

        "That is the way", he said. "But there are no stairs", I cried.
        "You must throw yourself in", he replied. 'There is no other way. "

        > 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.
