Is your inbox looking a little different these days? Well, Melanie’s is and she’s not happy about it.
“I have 2 Yahoo email accounts which I use to keep various things separate. One is my personal correspondence and one is just for newsletters and Facebook (incidentally the latter attracts 20x the spam as the correspondence one, which is another issue).
Last week, for reasons unknown, my personal account displayed separated into months. The other one does not. I hate the separation and want it to revert back to the single listing, but I cannot figure out how. Am attaching screenshots of both inboxes. Do you know which magic button will fix it?”
Melanie sent me screenshots, but asked that I not use images of her e-mail inbox in the article, so I’ll use examples from my own Yahoo account.
Here’s the look for her personal account:
Here’s the look for the second account:
There difference in these accounts, the first being that one account sorted by date and the other by sender. You can change how they are sorted by clicking the drop-down arrow in the upper-right corner of the inbox.
Choose how you want things sorted from the drop-down menu.
If you want to the messages sorted by date, you’re stuck with that view you don’t like so much unless you switch the look of your inbox.
Here’s how to do that: Click that drop-down menu again and choose More settings.
Choose Viewing email and then Basic. In basic mode, you won’t be able to view slideshow, use drag and drop or personalize your theme.
However, you can view you inbox sorted by date without the separation by months.
Hope this helps.
