I'm all for monetization and even flashy ads--until they derail my email.

Yahoo Mail (the new fancy one) has been a pain all day. It's slow. It's clunky and it gets that way every time this stupid eBay ad appears. The ad, a rollover highlights thing, tries to entice me to go to eBay. The problem: It's an annoyance since I can't get my email.

I've gone back to Yahoo Mail Classic twice because of the ad. Here's what I get:yhooad.png

The eBay ad apparently is calling Yahoo servers repeatedly slowing down the response time (and Yahoo can be slow to begin with). Anyone else seeing this?

    I never gave it a chance to let me experience the problem you are having. I really, really do not like the new interface, and I too have reverted back to classic..

    To put it simply, I dont want a flash interface, I want my email! I find the extras really, really slow down the response time, and for email I am not willing to accept that!

    Stick with classic, I believe the old "if it ain't broke" really does apply here!

    Yes, Observed the same thing, I had to switch back to classic mail many times last week.

    There are more annoyances than what you found. I was back to classic Y!Mail long ago.

    Tip: Use "Ajax Yahoo Mail" Firefox add-on for better mail browsing.
