I Am so MAD!  
I couldn't get my Yahoo mail to display properly -- all the buttons to move to the next page were gone. So I closed my browser, restarted computer, thinking there was some issue with me. Still didn't work. So I started researching and it turns out THEY DID IT ON PURPOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My inbox is one long endless scrolling page. I could cry. I've been with Yahoo 13 YEARS! Almost all my non personal email is centered there. I can't even comprehend what it's going to take to try and switch to another service. I loathe Gmail, stuck with Yahoo, and this is what they do. Just trying to delete mail without the ability to do it page by page? ARGH!! And the icing on the cake? Their Twitter is preening over the change, links to the blog post about it, asks what you think, and guess what? comments are disabled. FAIL!

Download Opera and try getting on Yahoo again. Yahoo Mail is incompatible with Opera so I'm still using the old version. There's a little pop up complaining that I should change browsers and it loads up the old one.

I'll have to look into that, thank you.

Well, that was a no go. I did download it, Yahoo said I should use a different browser, I said no, and it loaded the new sucky Yahoo version :(

Yeah, the inability to delete mail in batches makes it totally unworkable, amongst other things.

Why do you loathe Gmail - if you don't mind me asking. I love it and have used it for years. I used Yahoo at one time as well as my internet server, but wasn't crazy about their configuration either.

I hate, hate, hate threaded email.

You can turn that off in Gmail.

Nods. It's under settings. If you're talking about mail being grouped into conversations. I like that it does it that way, but you can set yours up either way.

I haven't looked at the setting since I first signed up way back when, so didn't know they now gave you the option to undo that.

I've disliked the new Yahoo set up, too, for much the same reason. Being able to dump 25+ junk emails at once (while sorting out the 3-4 per page that I wanted to read) was wonderful. I should probably let Yahoo know I dislike the new version, just in case it would encourage them to give users the option of using the old-style Inbox.

It makes mass deleting impossible.
