      But how does that alleviate mail delays to Yahoo?  Seems to me that your emails still have to arrive at Yahoo! in order to be forwarded to Gmail.  If anything, the delay is only increased, albeit perhaps imperceptibly.

      Well, I am a plus member so I just have it automatically forward to my gmail account.  I did add the yahoo information to my gmail account so I can send as my yahoo account.

      Does that make sense?

      so you use your gmail account and  just add your yahoo to it?
      I should try that.

      I've had that issue recently too.  It happens in both IE and Firefox.  I temporarily went back to gmail.  I don't seem to get any delays when I have my mail forwarded here.

      I am still experiences bad delays with my sent emails from my yahoo
      email account. I've sent over 14 emails over the course of this
      morning, and none have reached the recipients yet. Is there a place I
      can let Yahoo know that there are delays or are delays posted
      somewhere? This seems to be an on-going and very frustrating problem.
      Emails that I sent on Sunday have just reached some recipients last
      night and this morning. Will switching to Classic have an effect on
      email delivery? Will forwarded all the emails I sent this morning to
      the recipients help at all in getting the emails to them?

      I also have bizarre issues in the last few days with replying to
      emails. When I hit reply, often one of two things happens:

      1. I cannot type in the body of the message. Its just frozen there.
      So I have to cancel and try again.
      2. I can type, but as soon as I hit a Yahoo special character (like
      a "C" for chat), it takes me to that place. So if I start typing the
      word "nice", I can type N then I and when I get to "C" suddenly I'm in
      chat. Often at this time, the to: field gets wiped out as well. I
      usually have to cancel and try again.

      If anyone has any advice or words of wisdom on how I can prevent or
      protect myself against mail delays and/ir fix the issue with replying,
      please let me know. I just don't know where to go from here.

      Thanks all:
