Yahoo Mail Classic users who’ve been clinging to the Classic interface now need to conform to a recent update in order to access their email.
Those who are worried about Yahoo scanning their emails are not going to be pleased with the new policy. Yahoo is suggesting users not happy with the policy either transfer their e-mail elsewhere or simply close their accounts. The new policy allows Yahoo to scan email content so it can generate ads specifically geared to the user.
“This includes the acceptance of automated content scanning and analyzing of your communications content, which Yahoo! uses to deliver product features, relevant advertising and abuse protection,” the site states on the Help page.
Users can opt out of the ads generated via the content scans, but Yahoo will still be scanning email content.
