Yahoo Classic Mail is being shut down, here’s when
We are currently already in mid of a major outage at Yahoo, and we have stumbled upon another sad news, one which is coming directly from the horse’s mouth. The company has announced that the Classic version of its Yahoo Mail is being shut down.
Yes, that’s true. An official Yahoo staff member took to at the company’s online forums a few hours ago to break the news, saying the service will no longer be available starting “January 31, 2019.”
Starting January 31, 2019, the Classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available. At that time, you’ll be upgraded to the latest version of Yahoo Mail or Basic Mail, depending on your browser’s compatibility
So you see, those who don’t give up until the last day will automatically be upgraded to the basic or latest version of Yahoo Mail.
I am sure there are still many Yahoo Mail users who are using the Classic version for some reason or the other:
Yahoo is so mad at me for keeping classic mail instead of the upgraded version
At this point I’m just doing it out of spite

Yahoo keeps trying to flip us to a new version, here's my response: I am happy with the classic mail. How many times do we have to tell Oath/Yahoo that we are happy. Classic mail is the best. The original is still… https://t.co/IoJ1obM4P4

I've decided to switch back to classic Yahoo Mail, maybe that will stop the scams. pic.twitter.com/apxQ33GrPp
