Yahoo! Hello all!! I check very often the Yahoo! Mail and I do it from my Ipaq. Just after signing in, there is a screen that says that I have to switch to the version supported by my browser. I click there and the version of Yahoo that I see in my Ipaq is different than the one from my PC. That is Ok, no problem… I guess encryption reasons or something.

The problem is that when I check the email from my Laptop, the version I see in the screen is the same one of the Ipaq!!! With no enhacements, flash or anything just the simple Ipaq version in my laptop… Can anybody tells me why is this happening or what can I do so that when I sign in from my Laptop the Yahoo that will come up is the “new one” and not the Ipaq simple version? Or better, how can we upgrade the pocket explorer in order to have access to all the new versions of sites on the web?

Thanks!!!

here’s the direct link for just mail, and what Dave gave you is the wap portal for Yahoo which is very useful as well. I personally just have this link bookmarked on my PDA

http://wap.oa.yahoo.com/raw?dp=mail

and for my main site I have

http://www.google.com/xhtml

which makes everything gprs/mobile friendly.

cheers

Thank you both, David and lvlolvlo… the link that Dave gave me is just for the Yahoo! Mobile services but the one wa.oa.yahoo… is like a super simple link to the Yahoo! Mail. It is pretty cool because brings me directly to my inbox in a “friendly” way, without changing to the “supported version” of my Ipaq’s browser. I will bookmark the wap.oa.yahoo and will use it always when going to read my Yahoo! Mail. With it, the NEW version stays in my laptop and PC and that simple one goes in my Ipaq…

Thanks!!!

I like Yahoo! and use it often. For my iPAQ, I use http://pg1.yahoo.com/raw?

I like the opening screen—a variety of choices to go to .
