    I have had problems with Yahoo email, but not til recently,
    but i heard a month or so ago there were some.

    I waited, until a friend (with Verizon) (I am with Tmo) told me she called in. They said that there was in fact a Yahoo problem, they fixed it over the phone by giving some new server settings?

    FOR ME, I expected the same...I called Tmo, to get to Tech support was horrific. They then had me goto Yahoo Mobile online, download an email App

    Once done, I had a new icon, simply a Mail (yahoo) icon INSTEAD of an Email icon to use. I could pick which one???

    1. Does this make sense? Was Verizon right, are there some server settings, changes I need to make (symptoms, you may ask: waiting, NOT 5 minutes, but sometimes an hour, sometimes NO messages. Some were from the forums)
    So do I need to enter some setting changes OR use the new icon OR use whatever icon I want, downloading the app itself fixed it??

    2. Within that application, can someone explain a few things??

    a) What is "contact email" -- is it email directly in the inbox from contacts only, and if there was one from Joe Smith, not a contact, it would not list it?

    b) What is the Picture Email?? whoooahh LOL this could get me in trouble. I saw emails pop up from a year ago I sent - HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN. Some were ones I sent / some were ones I received. But where did they come from. How do I get better hold on these.
    Am I the only one in the world who ever got the shock of his life using Yahoo or an app like this. Thank God I caught it.

    Thanks for listening.. I can't always express it easily. I am not a great writer AT ALL. So forgive me, please.
