You can switch from the regular Yahoo Mail to Yahoo Mail Basic if you want a simpler, yet still functional interface that should work fast in any browser and on networks with lower-than-average speeds. It uses simple HTML to speed things up without all the fancy animations and buttons.
Yahoo Mail turns to basic mode automatically when it recognizes a slow connection or a browser that doesn’t know how to handle the fully featured interface. There used to be an option in the settings to switch over to the basic version, but that option is no longer offered; you can only get there through a special link.
How to change to Yahoo Mail Basic simply
Step 1: Click the gear icon located at the upper right corner by your name and select “Settings“.
Step 2: Settings screen, click “Viewing email“, then tick “Basic” under Mail version.
Step 3: Turning on HTTPS for improved security. Gmail and Outlook.com already have had this feature for what seems like forever, but even if you use your Yahoo account to sign up for newsletters, it’s always nice to have extra security.
Step 4: Click Save button and your Yahoo mail will switch back the interface you know and are comfortable with.
Note: If you want to switch it back to the new full-featured version, just click the link “Switch to the newest Yahoo! Mail” located in the upper right corner. This will allow you to ease yourself into the new interface, and still use your Yahoo email productively while the new mail bugs get fixed.
