I have a big problem with writing mail in Polish because all diacritic symbols are achieved by right alt+letter and this interferes with Yahoo shortcuts.

Is there a more convenient way than editing the mail somewhere else?

I think the problem is not with Yahoo Mail Shortcut as it has no keyboard shortcut as right alt + letter (check Yahoo Mail keyboard Shortcuts), instead the problem is with your browser's keyboard shortcuts. So try disabling/configuring those or consider using a different browser.

For Google Chrome Shortcut Manager may be helpful.

  • @teodozjan - Can you please specify which version of Firefox are you using? Commented Jan 19, 2015 at 15:16
  • 35.0 but now something has changed. Only R_ALT+Z works as CTRL+Z while other keys are served as expected
