Thank you Jac (I see I have inadvertrntly posted my "fix" twice on this thread).
I was aware of the 'migration' nullifying my "fix". But until that happens, it's saving me a quite a bit of time.
Have you read all of this post and in particular messages 40 and 44 which give an explanation or are you just expressing your frustration at the situation.
When using BT Yahoo Mail, I'm furious with the new login proceedure.
I login several times a day to access emails. I click on the right-hand side "Email" button.
Up until the last few days I'd get a drop down login box for the username and password.
There was a "keep me logged in" tick box which, when ticked, would enable me to access the email section without further username or password requirement, for several days.
Now EVERY TIME I click on "email" (even if I logs in and leave for 5 minutes to Google somethine), I have to go through the whole username/password rigmarole. There is no "keep me logged in" box.
I telephoned BT (India) to be told "there are many hackers around these days and THIS IS FOR YOUR OWN SECURITY.
I find this very inconvenient and time consuming.
I there any way around this?
I'm thinking of changing to another email provider.
Have a read through all the other posts about this issue. You will find information about it.
