Basic vs. Full Featured att/yahoo webmail
A number of threads have been asking about "Basic" webmail. Switching from full featured to basic does not affect your email. You still have the same account(s), mail boxes, and the contents of those mailboxes. The only thing that changes is how it is presented on the webpage and some features that are only provided in the full featured version.
I did some searching and found what features you "lose" in the basic version. They are,
- Formatting toolbar
- Photo Slideshow
- Yahoo Messenger
Notepad(basic has a notepad)
Also missing is the account specific settings like specifying a sending name and reply-to email address. That and filters could be important to some users.
Another concern I am not sure of at this point, it may be that you cannot use IMAP in email clients due to the strange "POP & Forwarding" option called "Access Yahoo Mail via POP". I haven't tested this out. You wouldn't think a email client app would care about what options are in the webmail but why have an option like "Access Yahoo Mail via POP"?
