    Default Anyone else HATE the new Yahoo mail??

    It's slow as crap. Everything you do is slow. Even typing is slow. Changing email addresses is harder than changing banks though..

    I hate the new Yahoo mail with a passion. They had a very nice setup, with nice, easy to use tools. They have destroyed it. If they had hired a saboteur they could not have messed it up any worse.

    You can change it back to the "simpler" format which is what I did.

    I can't stand it. I've used yahoo for email for 10 years and I'm looking at switching to something else. It's terrible.

    I didn't know you could switch back. I'm going to have to look into that.

    Get a Gmail account. Under the settings, there is a way to link another email account (your Yahoo account, in this case). You can then receive all of your Yahoo mail automatically transferred to Gmail. You can also send emails from Gmail and they will be identified as being sent from YourAddress@yahoo.com. I have 3 accounts linked to Gmail this way - works like a charm

    I have hotmail and gmail as a back up.
    Gmail is creepy ... the advertisements one sees are based on the content of the email one is reading or writing at a given time

    I have a yahoo email account I use as a dumping ground for when I sign up for something that I don't want to use my main gmail account for. Things that may result in receiving spam. (Contest drawings, etc.)
    I check it periodically and did notice the change, but since I don't use it to send messages I don't care one way or the other.

    When I get email from a customer that uses an aol account, I feel like I should use a dial up connection in order to be compatible.

    We still use checks here, too.
    I have two jobs that pay with check. I used mail (USPS) to send a check this morning to pay a bill
