How to log out from Yahoo Webmail?

I have had a Yahoo email account for years.
The new Xtra Webmail seems to have messed up my existing Yahoo
account.
When I log on to my Yahoo account, the "Log Off" link has been
replaced by a "Log In" link, even though I am logged in already and
can read emails etc. There is no way to log off.
Has anyone else noticed this, and are there any references to this
problem?

What happens when you delete all your cookies?

Xtra Bubble has indeed shat all over Yahoo Mail. When I log in from
work, I get the same crippled text-only interface on both. Xtra tell
me smugly that it's my problem for working inside a corporate LAN
where security prevents downloading the ActiveX controls required for
the braindead Bubble.

I tried to tell them that webmail should be simple and should run on
all browsers, without the need to download software. Like the Xtra
webmail that I used for years. But they did not appear to know what
I'm talking about.

So I've got a gmail account and I'm closing my Yahoo one. I'll email
Yahoo to tell them why - will make no difference, but. I may go to
the trouble of ditching Xtra on principle, even though we'll only be
here a few months more.

That makes no difference.

So you can't access your normal Yahoo email now, because it has you logged
in under Xtra Bubble?

I didn't think Telepathy was one of the "improvements" announced for the
Xtra Bubble.

Normally Yahoo remembers who you are through the use of a barrage of
persistent cookies, so I am intrigued that it still recognises you even
after deleting your cookies.

Are you a valued client perhaps? One so valuable that they will never let
you can log out or leave?

I have deleted the cookies.
I sign on to Xtra's Yahoo name.
I log off, because there *is* a "Log Off" link.
I sign on to my original Yahoo account.
I can access the Inbox etc.
There is no "Log Off" link, only a "Sign In" link.
When I click on "Sign In" (even though I am already signed in) I get
to a place where I am asked to put in my password again, or select to
sign on as another user.
If I select to sign on as another user, I can sign on as my Xtra Yahoo
account.
If I then log off that and sign into my Yahoo account, it says that I
am already signed into that account.
So Yahoo software has turned into complete crap.

How do you get gmail messages and attachments into your own machine
(other than copy and pasting?)

Are you able to simultaneously be logged into Xtra Bubble and Yahoo at the
same time? What I mean is that it may hold two active cookies - one for your
YahooXtra account and one for your Yahoo account.

If you have two separate tabs open (or windows), and without deleting your
cookies (ie retain their existing login status) are you able to;

1. Access your YahooXtra email
2. Access your Yahoo email

Yes ... you can easily configure gmail to forward email to any pop3
account. Or another webmail account if you prefer. I'm using gmail
more and more because, unlike Yahoo, it's so easy to use.

Speaking of Yahoo, I believe you can change back to what I think they
call their "classic" version. It doesn't have all those bells &
whistles that make using the new Yahoo interface so frustrating.
