Well, my question specifically pertain to windows 2000 but rather to
those that have no option but us Internet Explorer 6.

I was recently alerted by Yahoo! Mail that coming June 2013, they will
be removing the "classic" setting of their webmail, which stands out as
the simplest construction that displays correctly under IE6 and forcing
users to upgrade to their flash-based webmail client which under my
circumstances will not work well and take up WAY more system resource
than I think a e-mail client should.

So with that in mind, what webmail providers use page constructions that
are friendly to IE6?

Can you use another browswer? Firefox 12 works with Win2K.

Actually, I have consider moving to another browser but then run into a
somewhat embarrassing problem - My computer is OLD. Between a BIOS that
copyrighted in 1997 and motherboard that is maxed out with a 200MHz
Pentium Processor, there is this unbearable feeling that I have finally
the technological glass ceiling

Anyone know how firebox 12 behaves with processors under the 1Ghz
threshold? How about 500MHz?

Wow. Any way you can pick up some old used computer real cheap? I know
FF12 works well on a 2GHz P4 w/ 1G RAM.

That said, a used computer might come with XP, which would let you use
the latest version of most browsers.

Well, I suppose that I will have to transition from unlimited access to
periodic checks of my Yahoo! account. I am extremely hesitant to abandon it
because it is such a wonderful service - its hard to let go of the
disposable addresses feature and the ten years worth of e-mails.

Now that the June 1st deadline to upgrade Yahoo! mail has passed, It
seems that the deadline was another bust or just being extremely lenient
with me.

For those that are unfamiliar with what I am referring to, here is what
you need to know - in May 2013, I posted a question about webmail
services because Yahoo! had sent out a notice that the classic version
of their webmail was being discontinued June 1st. In their e-mail, they
gave users the options to upgrade or close their account.

Well, it is now June 4th, 2013 and I can still access the classic
version.
