Yahoo mail is starting to change it's mail interface. My first account with them must be on one of their first servers. The interface changed yesterday and so far it's very slow and for the past hour, I haven't been able to log on at all. Has anyone else who's who's interface has changed been having problems?

i have been using the new interface for almost half year now.. and it sucks slow and always gives me trouble some days i cant log into my mail at all.

once i was able to i switched back to the classic view.... and no more issues....

Re: switching back to classic view. THANK YOU!!! I didn't even see that option at the top. The new interface it just too damn "busy". Plus, they have the new instant messenger option within the e-mail now. And I think that's what is slowing it down. Terrible idea Yahoo.

I hate the new(ish) layout as well. Very slow.

On a side note they need to do an overhaul on their spam filters. I get a half dozen an hour in my inbox no matter how many of them I mark as spam. Gmail on the other hand, I get maybe one a month in my inbox.

Isn't this more of a 'Tech' topic?

I checked there first, nothing. There has been many e-mail threads here over the years so I decided to post this here as well.

You're right about the spam though. My friends and I always forward each other the "spam of the day". Being the funniest. Lately, I love the new:

I tried the new mail for a couple of days before switching back to calssic. I have no desire to try it again. I'm sure at some point it won't be optional.

I've had great luck with Yahoo's spam filters. I can't remember the last spam that didn't land in my bulk folder.

Same here. I couldn't even access my mail at work it was so slow. Switched back to classic and forgot about the new interface.
