    One big problem is there is no delete tab at the bottom. Another is you have to press a tab to find the button that marks an email unread. GB

People (including myself) have expressed very specific objections to this change. Irrationally, it would seem, in your mind. You cite the remote control. I cite New Coke.

They have started to unchange, but the damage might be irreparable and they might find themselves on the same retail scrap heap as Montgomery Wards, Circuit City and Service Merchandise, to name just a few.

        "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.
