Starting tomorrow, June 3, Mail will make the final change to their new email interface, leaving the classic mail so far could be used alternatively. However, this change is already turning heads and not only be mandatory, but because users must accept the new Terms of Service which include features that are not very happy.

“Beginning in the week of June 3, 2013, the older versions of (including Yahoo! Mail Classic) are not available. After that, you can access your email from Yahoo! only if they upgrade to the new version. In making this upgrade, will be accepting our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, which includes accepting is done and content analysis “.

This automated system scanning Yahoo! will serve to provide “personalized and relevant content”, and to establish a profile for targeted advertising issues, provide “protection from abuse” and also to prevent damage caused by malware.

As expected, there are some Yahoo! Mail users who are not at all happy with the situation. However, it is worth mentioning that such practices are not new precisely because Gmail has a similar system. And who does not want to upgrade or anything? They will have to download your mail, close your account, and opt for a refund if it Mail Plus users.
