Short answer: Yes (at least if the sender used an email program). Long answer: Each email message contains a number of headers, which describe things like the sender's and recipients' email addresses, where the message originated from, and so on. As the message passes through SMTP servers, which relay it to the recipient(s), each of them adds a Received ...

Is your email @yahoo.com or @ymail.com? For YMail, you can check it with pop3 access, and thus you can have GMail check your YMail account using pop3.

update: It seems like Yahoo closed the loophole below, but I was able to forward my new @ymail.com email account by using this link. YMMV: another regular @yahoo.com email did not work... source I've been forwarding my free Yahoo email to my Gmail for a long time, now... Try changing your location setting: You can forward Yahoo email without having ...

A lot of spammers send spam with the sender marked as your own address, trying to fool the spam filters this way. Spam filters work in various ways, trying to classify emails depending on various criteria. The email you sent seemed somehow suspicious to the filter, so it marked it as spam. You can try to change this behaviour by telling the filter that the ...

It really is semantics. Labeling a message and dragging it into the label pulls it out of the inbox. In fact, if you think "folder" instead of "label", it really works the same with the added feature that a message can appear in two folders at once. Loosen your brain and let it work.

If there is no way in the settings then there is really not much else you can do about it. If you want to make a suggestion to yahoo they have a suggestions board here: Yahoo Suggestions Board

If you suspect someone is logging into your accounts, you should change your passwords on these accounts as soon as possible. But before you change your password, go into the accounts and make sure that email is not being forwarded onto any other email addresses that are not your own. It is common for a compromised account to have had the settings changed ...

The first thing you should do is change the password on your account. The second thing you should do is run a check on your PC to see if there are any viruses or trojans installed. Once you've done that and cleaned your PC you should be in a better position. It could be that someone is just forging (or spoofing) the e-mails using your address as the sender ...

Sorry, but you are looking for a feature that simply does not exist in gmail. You will not be able to change that behavior unless you download your e-mail to a local client like Outlook and use it to sort your mail. http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=10708

There is no official way to add/remove columns from the reading panes lists. That particular column sorts the mails by read/unread. Your only option is to find a custom script that removes the respective icons or the column entirely.

I think I've found a solution - Yahoo! changed the turn off option from search box (question mark). You must go to the bottom of left menu (folders, etc.) and click settings icon of Applications and then find the Shortcut app and remove it. More information here

It seems that it's not possible via Yahoo!'s web interface. When I select multiple messages in my inbox and click Forward, Yahoo! gives the following error: However, there is YPOPs! which is a free open source software that provides POP3 and SMTP access to Yahoo! Mail. In this way, you can forward multiple emails at once by making use of an email ...

You have listed the three reasons, so it's good that you are aware of them... Let's go through them: Hacking You handled this just fine by quickly changing your password. Spoofing The SMTP protocol (the connection used to send mails) allows anyone to specify the address the mail originates from. So for instance, I could send a mail from any Yahoo address ...

I used service deleteyouraccount (quite useful not only for yahoo :) ). However your account will be removed only after 3 months.

Both of the previous answers relate to a feature that is only available through the Yahoo Mail Plus plan, which now costs money. If you're willing to pay for Yahoo Mail Plus, which would run you $20 for one year, setting up POP or forwarding, as described in the previous answers, is the way to go. However, I don't recommend it, as you would be paying for ...

Contact Yahoo! Customer Care and supply as much detail as possible regarding the problem. You can either fill in the help form or directly phone them. If you're going to use the form, don't forget to select "My account has been hacked" under the subject part.

I find it very hard to believe that Google would ever make use-of yahoo servers. I may be wrong in this, but I suspect your browser may have run into some nasty bugs... or perhaps you have a yahoo-toolbar enabled that is doing some stuff behind-the-scenes. Can you give me an example of what you were doing/where you went... or what you were looking at? I ...

Have a look at GMX. It supports email forwarding for free. How do I forward messages sent to my GMX.COM account to a different mail address? You need to create a special filter rule that forwards all messages to a specific e-mail address. You can find out more about creating filter rules here. Source: ...

In Yahoo! Mail Classic you have the advanced search options (just click search without entering any criteria in the search box to get the advanced options page). From there you can search for all emails after a certain date (ie. a date in the future). In the search results you can select them all and mark as spam / move to trash etc. However, I don't see ...

You should use the new yahoo mail interface, it is easier to see your new options. Create a Folder Go to Options > Filters > Add Filter (then set up your filter to move to the folder).

There's nothing that you can do. If the spam is actually being sent from that Yahoo! account, you could change the password (but since you said that you "can not control", you may not have access to the account anymore) Most likely a spammer has retrieved the address book and the From address, and they can easily send messages with a forged From address ...

In case of Gmail it depends on how you delete it. Google support writes about possibilities of regaining your username depending on how you have deleted your account. Recovering a deleted username Canceling your Gmail address Therefore, it seems that your username won't be available for others to use in any case.

This topic is old, but the answer is, search for is:starred like in Gmail. (Maybe it wasn't available on Yahoo Mail at the time of asking the question.)

You can have a virus. The one that sends e-mails. If you have at least one spam e-mail try to track computers that had received it in Received header. If it tracks down to your computer - you are vulnerable. They can just use your e-mail when sending spam. Nothing you can do unless your mail provider (Yahoo) would use something like DKIM or SPF.
