Yahoo Email access problems

Hi all ,

As of December 2009......

If you have been unable to access your Yahoo email recently , even though your password and user ID are correct , and your screen and computer just freezes up , please try this very simple solution......

It seems that for people using a computer screen resolution of less than 1024 x 768 , the new all singing all dancing Yahoo Email goes haywire when you try to use it. But for some strange reason other Yahoo emails may display correctly without any problem using the same computer.

Solution: Change your computer screen resolution to at least 1024 x 768

How: right click on your desktop picture , scroll down to `properties` or `display properties` and left click it , then select the `settings` tab , or keep clicking the tabs until you see a slider bar showing the screen resolution. Drag the bar to at least 1024 x 768 , click on `apply` and then `ok` , and then try logging into your Yahoo Email again. This time it should work.

I am unable to log in to my mail id though ID and password are correct

Login credentials are case sensitive. Make sure that your keyboard is not in caps. Make sure also that you are the only person that knows the user name and password.

Go to Yahoo login page, then click on "I can't access my account". Answer the questions, provide an alternate e-mail address, and the password will be e-mailed to you. Then you will know if the password changes or not.

Thank you!

Need to complete a technical help form to submit. Today Yahoo would not let me into my email with only my password. The cursor would not let me off of the ID box. It made me complete a registration form giving me a new email address-abryce62169@rocketmail.com. Then I couldn't get into my email. I have had the address abryce621@yahoo.com for years. I want this back so I can use my email. The error I am receiving is Mail Cannot load. Mail failed due to a client side error.

Please reset your password by http://edit.yahoo.com/forgot Question 1 of 2 Where did you meet your spouse?

can't log onto email even though password and user


One solutions is that to change your password. To do this simply click on I forgot my password and follow instruction.

if your old password does not match then there is a possibility that your account has been hacked by someone and password has been changed.

Thanks !
