How to Switch to Yahoo Mail Classic

The new version of Yahoo Mail is quite stylish and sleek, which is why it is being admired by many Yahoo users. The only issue people are facing with the new version is that it takes a lot of time in booting up; you will need a fast internet connection in order to use the ultimate version. This is the main reason why people prefer switching their Yahoo mail to the classic version. In the beginning it was thought that once you have changed the version, you are unable to switch back to the classic version but this is possible now. If your internet speed is not fast enough to provide you an efficient Yahoo Mail service, then switch from the new version back to the Classic Yahoo Mail Version.
