Is this an attempt at identity theft or a result of poor security?

I can’t figure this out. At the start of this month, I got an email at the junk mail account I have at yahoo, informing me that an account had been created in gmail that’s only two characters off from the gmail address that I use as my main e-mail account. What’s going on? [more inside]

How do I mark thousands of emails as read at one time?

I synced my Yahoo mail account with Gmail. Now Gmail displays thousands of unread messages. Most of them are useless notification messages but some may be emails that I want to keep. How can I mark them all as read? I would prefer not to go through the whole list 20 at a time.

HATE HATE HATE new Yahoo mail

I have been using yahoo mail for at least 15 years. I liked it, worked just fine for me. The new format (which only showed up on my desktop; my i-pad's yahoo mail format has not changed) is frustrating, annoying, and not to my liking at all). Is there any way to go back to the old format? What (free) email server is most like the "old" Yahoo mail? I know everyone has their own favorite e-mail provider--what YOU like or YOU are used to. I know that G-Mail is probably the most popular provider these days, but I am not looking to be sold on your personal fave--I just want to know which provider is the most like the OLD yahoo, which is what I personally liked and was used to. I would particularly like to hear from former Yahoo users who switched to something else after this recent change (or, wishful thinking: figured out a way to use the old format). Thanks!

Why is this item suddenly appearing in Yahoo Mail?

All of a sudden a little link thing pops up in the lower left corner every time I open Yahoo mail. It has a brown background and has links to Yahoo Mail and Y! Confidential. It also has button links with a megaphone symbol and a bug symbol. What is it? Can I get rid of it? It happens in both Chrome and Firefox.

Chrome is just... broken!

I use Chrome as my primary browser, but it's been increasingly weird over the course of the past few months. The pop-up blocker is really terrible, missing tons of pop-ups that even IE has caught, Javascript stuff only works some of the time, etc. How can I fix this? [more inside]

I can't search my yahoo mail

Searching my yahoo mail usually fails. I enter the word/phrase I'm looking for then hit the Search button, and all I get is a blank page that seems to be loading. That's it! It gets stuck there. Sometimes the search is successful, but recently, more often than not, it doesn't work. Does anyone have a solution? I use Firefox 4.0.1 and Yahoo Mail Classic. I can't remember when this problem started, perhaps a few weeks/months ago.

How do I open image file attachments within Mozilla?

Mozilla has problems for me opening image files sent as attachments in Yahoo mail. When I try to just open the file - a jpg - Mozilla opens a blank browser window, then a dialogue box saying "Mozilla doesn't know how to handle this file" and asks me to choose "open with default program" "open with... (choose)" or "save to disk." But it's a jpg! Shouldn't it just open it like every other jpg it encounters? I tried deleting the listing under "helper apps" under preferences and starting over, but I still get the same thing. Only seems to happen with jpgs sent as attachments in Yahoo mail. Any ideas how to get it to just open the file without an extra blank window and extra steps?

Yahoo Mail doesn't acknowledge that I'm a premium user.

YahooMail problems. I signed up for the 2gb yahoomail account, but very often it treats me as if I am still a regular free user and shows me I am 600% over the limit. During that time, all email sent to me gets bounced back to the sender. I've tried to find a yahoo status page (like this one for ebay) to see what is up. Is anyone having these problems? Is there a Yahoo Status page?

Can you check another pop3 account through Yahoo Mail Plus?

I was thinking of signing up for the new Yahoo Mail Plus, but I want to know if I can check another pop3 account through it. Yahoo says you can send as another email, but says nothing about receiving. Has anyone tried this?
