Yahoo! Mail Beta uncompatible with our OS

Recommended Posts


Can't you just use an alternative? If Yahoo Mail doesn't work on Windows 98, where does it run on anyway?

Maybe it only works on Linux :D

'crack'...? Isn't it free? :huh:

After looking through some information about it, it seems to be entirely web-based. It's probably just detecting it via some Javascript or the User-agent and refusing to continue, much like hotmail.com seems to not want Javascript disabled. These can easily be gotten around with a few Proxomitron filters.

My user-agent currently says:

User-Agent: Telnet (compatible; PN-DOS v8.94; MGnX v5.11)

:lol:

If you could provide a few links to the pages which are suppposedly not compatible, I can find where the check is and write the filter to kill it.

Firefox, Seamonkey, and Mozilla users can download the extension User Agent Switcher:

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/59/

After installing, go to Options -- Options, add a new agent.

In Firefox I used the description Firefox XP and under User agent add the following line:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; nl; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051107 Firefox/1.5.0.7

Leave the rest of the lines blank. Remember you can change the Agent for the current session only.

You don't need FireFox (nor its extensions) at all :P

This is what i managed to do...

Opera 9.02 :

IE 6 SP1 :

Just identify in Yahoo, then open this

Enjoy :D

This address worked for me (and I don't know if I'm "US user" or something else...I'm not in the US)

http://us.f518.mail.yahoo.com/dc/launch?sysreq=ignore

It works perfectly. :) Just more bloat, adds and stuffs being downloaded, but when no dowload is necessary, it's fast.

I only fail to see the advantage over the old Y!Mail...

"compose is tabed" and the look is slickier except that I see nothing new...

It's very interresting to know that it works on w98++. It prooves that they ban w98 for no technical reason...

I don't realy care of this Y!Mail beta. Y!Mail classic works just fine.

The fun is to run an application that is not suppose to run on w98.

I agree a 100%

the whole objective is to rebel Win98SE like the renegade it is.

I have WinXP on a few machines but i love Win98SE with a passion.

I will keep manipulating software until i'm able to be satisfied to the point

I will format my WinXP machines and install Win98SE on all of them.
