    I would like to use copy and paste when I go in the compose section of yahoomail but I can't do it. Why is that so? there are times I have to type it first in Words and then when I connect to net to save time I want to use copy and paste for convenience. I could use copy and paste in mail.com, but the sad part is this free email has a very low storage inbox compared to yahoo mail.

    How should I enable so that copy and paste will be activated when composing in yahoomail? o_O

    There are buttons for paste in the rich text mode. So it must be supported.

    Do you use keyboard shortcuts or right-click copy and paste?

    Both work for me... Maybe it's your browser blocking a script?

    Or maybe copy and pasting from Word to Notepad then to Yahoo? That might sound like a major inconvienence, but that's all I can think of...

    I've had the same problem cutting and pasting in yahoo mail. Here's how I fixed it.

    Click > Options

    Click > General Preferences

    Scroll down the page And Click >Composing E-mails

    Check the box that says "Compose Messages As Plain Text"

    Scroll to the bottom of the page and click >SAVE

    The good news is you can now cut and paste in yahoo mail. The bad news is you lose your color and graphics. There should be a way to cut and paste with color and graphics on. I just haven't found out how.
