When such a notification appears... Open your notification area Long-press on the notification. This opens the app's settings in the system configuration. Here you can disable all notifications from the app. This is a feature introduced with JellyBean -- as you've stated your device is running Android 4.1.2, this setting should be available to you.

The news notification can be set inside the Yahoo Mail app itself. Open the left navigation drawer (e.g. by swiping from left to right, or tapping the "hamburger" icon on the top-left) Tap Settings at the bottom Under General, select Notifications Under News notification settings, tap Enable notifications to switch it off/on

In the official Yahoo! Mail app, Yahoo recently changed the layout so that the Settings menu is no longer accessed by pressing the "Menu" button. Launch the app and tap the little < arrow next to the "Inbox" label on the upper-left corner of the screen. This will reveal the Folders menu. Scroll it down to the "Tools" section, tap on Settings, then tap ...

I would guess that Samsung failed to provide proper support for Yahoo Mail. Therefore I recommend that you install the offical Yahoo Mail app. It should work out of the box. Antoher approach is to forward your yahoo mail to your google mail. They advantage is that you don't have to use an additional e-mail app.

I have the same problem. It's ridiculous. I don't really have a solution, but here's my workaround: I forward the found email to myself. (Doing this, you still won't be able to read the message in the composition window!!) So you'll be able to read the forwarded message only when it comes around in your inbox. I really do hope they'll fix this.

I encountered the same issue. I didn't find a solution yet, but I'd like share my opinion on the possible cause of this issue. After I re-try the sign-in, the sign-in page shows an error indicating redirection loop or proxy loop error. Sometimes, I get error message saying that I'm trying to login from an unexpected country, and I have to verify the log-...

Just use the default contacts app. When entering your new contact, there is an option where you can choose where it should be stored. Choose your Google account and you're all set.

I know you can tap the icon next to their name in Gmail and it'll ask if you want them to added to your contact list, although not extensive, I'm sure can be edited further. I can't help with Yahoo!'s service though as I don't use them primarily. Someone else may be able to answer you on that point.

Okay, I just figured out a workaround. You can export your Yahoo Contact Lists by: Signing into your Yahoo Account via their web interface, Clicking on the "Contacts" icon, and Choosing "Actions" => "Export". This will create a CSV file which can then be used to import the contacts into a Gmail account via Google's web interface. After that, you can sync ...

If you install the Yahoo mail app from the Play Store, it will synchronize your contacts to your phone's address book, and pull them up in any app, including Gmail. The advantage of this method is that you will have an ongoing sync, meaning any contacts you add via Yahoo website will automatically appear on your phone, and vice-verse. If you don't want to ...

This sounds like you're using POP3 to access your email. This doesn't sync read status back to the server. Can you configure your email using IMAP? Take a look here and use these settings
