Using Yahoo mail I sent out a "Reply " to some of my classmates and got 5 returned saying Dameon Mail cannot deliver mail or something like that. These were the same addresses I use on g-mail. I just copied and pasted over to that account and sent them again with responses so I don't know what Yahoo us drinking as this has happened more than once.

May go to another e-mail provider for my private mail. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Everyone hates gmail but depending on if you use google+ junk it's pretty good,
Less spam than any email service I've run into,
outlook.com and or Hotmail is okay but they always have spam attacks it seems ?
Cheers.

I'm so frustrated with this ... it's not the easiest password to type over and over again
Do you have IE11 set for https? If so, the password for Yahoo won't stick (leastwise, that's what happened with me with IE10).
I periodically signed into a yahoo account to test and never had any sign in issues or cookies being retained,
It's been a while it was only a throw down account but I'm not at all sure I remember the password anymore
Last time I did yahoo was pushing hard for a cell phone number to confirm who I was for reset password,
That was the last I ever went back,
So it's most likely a two step verification mishap going on with yahoo,
Cheers.

I've marked this solved again. Yahoo is just a Yay-hoo and comes and goes.

FWIW: I highly recommend getting a solid email address for critical accounts. Hotmail and Yahoo are not that solid from the responses here..

Any recommendations Rich? I don't want Gmail, Google does enough spying and track by using their search.

Rich,
Which solid e-mail do you use?

I'm also curious. I can't use the email formerly known as Hotmail because M$ requires I have all cookies enabled (that is soooo NOT happening) and I trust Google as far as I can spit upwind in a stiff breeze, so that eliminates Gmail (the one time I tried it, I didn't like it, anyway). Yahoo is the least of the three evils. I could use my ISP's email but, if I ever change my ISP, I would loose that email addy. Changing addies is one royal PITA I would rather not have to deal with.

Thunderbird 24.0.1 - Import Yahoo Mail Folders, Contacts & Yahoo Mail
The "new improved" Yahoo Mail isn't. In fact, it's vexing, mortifyingly slow, and no longer allows open folders while creating new messages so you can't copy and paste with both items open.
