Yahoo ended its Mail Classic service in June 2013. Although you can't switch back, you can still find many Classic elements in the current version of Yahoo Mail along with a plethora of useful new features. As of November 2014, Yahoo also provides an option to switch to a Classic-like version of Mail called Basic Mail.
Modifications to Mail Classic
When Yahoo updated Mail from the last version of Classic, it mostly made cosmetic changes to the user interface, moved around the names and locations of some tools and menus and added new features. For example, it reduced the size of the top navigation tabs, replaced the text labels with icons and added Messenger and Mail for Mobile tabs. It gave users the ability to follow conversations in email threads and added features from its former paid Mail Plus service like automatic email forwarding, POP access, disposable email address and extra filters. After the initial roll-out, Yahoo also restored some removed features with upgrades at user request, such as open email tabs with an option to view all open tabs at the same time as thumbnails.
