Update on the Classic Mail Update
About a month ago I posted about the streamlining and updating of Yahoo! Mail Classic. As of this posting only a handful of you Classic users may have been transitioned over to the updated version (you can tell by reviewing some of the details in this post), with everyone else waiting for the rollouts to continue.
As many of you may remember from my chat with Skotch during the rollout of the All-New Yahoo! Mail, when it comes to rolling out something of this magnitude we prefer the careful approach. The rollout is gradual and is very closely monitored during each step.
We know that many of you are using Yahoo! Mail this winter to coordinate those all-important holiday plans with family and friends (whether Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Soyal, Winter Solstice, Yule, or even Festivus). Many others are using it for your business communications with clients or customers, and may be counting on maximizing that holiday business. Either way this is an absolutely critical time of year for communicating, and, although we know you are excited to experience the updated Mail Classic, the Yahoo! Mail team is mitigating exposure for users by delaying the product push until January.
That being the case we are still going to be hard at work behind the scenes tweaking and streamlining Yahoo! Mail Classic. Already back by popular demand is Forward as Attachment. Many of you never saw it go away, only seeing its impending removal on the list of changes, but worry not, it will remain a part of Classic (if you are using the updated Classic all you have to do is hold the Ctrl key – Command Key for Mac users – when you click on the Forward button). As far as the product rollout goes, however, we are officially on hold until January.
We appreciate your patience and hope that you understand.
