    FYI for Yahoo Mail users,

    With the release of Windows 10, Yahoo has released a stand alone mail app for Windows 10, so you don't have to use the default mail app that's included in Windows 10 if you don't want to use it. There are two ways that you can get the Yahoo Mail App for Windows 10:

    First way:

    1. Launch the Windows Store app by going to the Cortana search box and type in "Windows Store" in the box.
    2. Once you have the Windows Store app launched, in the upper right corner, you will see another search box.
    3. Enter "Yahoo Mail" in this search box. It will then give you, a list of matching apps with Yahoo Mail being one of them.
    4. Click on the "Yahoo Mail" app. You will then see a description of what the app is.
    5. Click on the Install button to install the app on your computer. The app will download.
    6. Once the app finishes downloading, the "Install" box will change to "Launch." Click "Launch" to launch the app and enter your Yahoo account info.

    Second Way:

    1. Go to: This is a direct link to the app.
    2. Click on the box that says "Get the app." This should launch the Windows Store app and take you directly to the app to download.

    The Yahoo Mail app is a lot like using Yahoo's web mail service, only it also functions as a default mail app for Windows 10, meaning that you can set it as the default mail app to launch when ever you click any e-mail address from a web site.

    The only real issue that I've found with this app is if your ISP is either AT&T, Frontier, Verizon, or Rogers, and you log on using your ISP based e-mail address, the app doesn't work that well with these e-mail accounts like it does with the straight accounts. These ISP's mentioned currently contact with Yahoo to provide both their e-mail hosting and custom portal pages for their customers.
