Do I have to upgrade to the new version of Yahoo! Mail?
Older versions of Yahoo! Mail will only be available until the beginning of June 2013, and after that, you can access your Yahoo! Mail only if you upgrade to the new version. You should have received an email from Yahoo! letting you know that your account required an upgrade.
If you prefer to opt out of interest-based and contextual-based advertising resulting from your scanned and analyzed communications content, you can change your settings at any time using our Ad Interest Manager.
If you don't want to use the new version of Yahoo! Mail, you may consider these other options:
- Download your Yahoo! Mail using IMAP: IMAP allows you to access your email from a different email program, such as Outlook, Mac Mail, or your mobile device's application. You can download your data to your personal computer or device using an IMAP program. But, in order to continue using Yahoo! Mail you will need to accept the Communications Terms of Service. See instructions for accessing Yahoo! Mail using IMAP.
- Close your account: Learn how to close your account.
Mail Plus accounts
If your previous version of Yahoo! Mail is no longer available and you would like to cancel your Mail Plus subscription as a result, you are eligible for a prorated refund for the unused portion of the service. See our refund policy and cancellation instructions.
