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.

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!

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.

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.

When you open a .doc out of a yahoo email (just open - not downloaded) then edit it, and click the save icon, where does it go? What happens after you close that window? [more inside]

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?

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?

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?
