The default name server due to interaction with the router?s NAT firewall feature cannot resolve simple names such as ?mail?. There is a workaround for this: First, verify that the mail client is set up with simple server names. To view the server names entered into Outlook Express, click on "Tools", "Accounts". Highlight the mail account and click on "Properties". Click on the "Servers" tab. Under "Server Information", there are two fields called "Incoming mail" and "Outgoing mail". If these are simple names like "Mail" and not something like "pop.myisp.mail.com" then use this work around. Second, make sure that the TCP/IP settings are configured to obtain an IP address automatically. In Windows 2000 also make sure that the TCP/IP settings are also configured for Obtain DNS server address automatically. Replace the mail server names with the mail server IP addresses. There are a couple ways this information can be obtained. Contacting the ISP and asking is one possible way. The other way is to reconnect the original computer to the modem. Make sure the computer is restarted or that the IP configuration is released and renewed and that the computer has obtained an IP address from the ISP. Open a "COMMAND" window by typing "CMD" in the run dialog box located in the "Start" menu. At the command prompt, type "PING MAIL" where "mail" is the simple name of the incoming mail server. The ISP server will return an IP address for the mail server. Record this address. Do the same for the outgoing mail server (if different): type "PING MAIL" where "mail" is the simple name of the outgoing mail server. Open the mail client (Outlook Express, etc.). For Outlook Express, click on "Tools", "Accounts". Highlight the mail account and click on "Properties". Click on the "Servers" tab. Under "Server Information", there are two fields called "Incoming mail" and "Outgoing mail". Enter the incoming and outgoing mail server IP addresses into these fields. Click "Apply". Close the window and test the mail by sending an e-mail to the mailbox. (Send an E-mail to yourself. This will test the incoming and outgoing mail all at once)

Unable to access my e-mails when I click on my inbox as directed through recent upgrade. The little arrow only spins, but does not open my e-mails. I need this problem fixed ASAP. What needs to be done?


Hello!

Actually, the problem is not with your email account, but with your internet browser unable to full access Yahoo.

Two possible fix to your problem, but it requires an hour to fix your email account.

First, whatever internet browser you are using (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.)
clear all caches, remove all cookies and clear everything in your browsing history. This should be done in the TOOLS menu of your internet browser. Then, access again Yahoo and log in.

Second, if the first fix do not work, use alternate internet browser to access your Yahoo mail account. If you do not want to use different browser, I recommend you uninstall it, download an upgrade version and install it to your system.

The next time you access Yahoo mail, it will be successful.

Good Luck!

My yahoo email keeps logging me out during my sessions.


Maybe that the problem is a disconnect and reconnect to the internet.Some routers with original firmware do have such connection problems.
So you establish a session at yahoo with ip x.x.x.x, yahoo sets a cookie for that session, router looses the connection and reconnects automatically, you get another ip y.y.y.y and the cookie may be invalid.

you may be able to browse other sites which doesn't relies on cookies and which have set cookies timeout to a large extend.

Unable to send emails on my laptop,i have a belkin wireless g router.


If you are connect to the internet and can browse without problem, then the email issue (send or receive for that matter) is more related to your Laptop Security and/or Firewall: isolate the problem by first disabling both security and firewall on your Laptop and then if it works, re-enabling them one by one. If you do not have either security and firewall enabled on your laptop, then the issue is with the securityfirewall on your router and/or modem: again, disable the firewall on your router and/or modem: if your email problem is solved, you should re-enabled your firewall and set an exception for the ports required for your email program.

Downloads prevent other web based activity


The only thing I can think would cause this would be bandwidth allocation. If your download(s) is/are using your bandwidth up then you will not be able to utilize it until the downloading is finished done. Do you have any way of limiting the download rate of your updates/podcasts or having them perform in background? You might also try to schedule your downloading to a time when you don't use your computer (get updates at some time between 3-5am or whenever you're always asleep).

DSL


No, the router will do the connection for you. All you will need to do is open up your Internet browser and you will be able to connect to the Internet without having to use the connection icon from your DSL provider. If you are still unable to browse the Internet but the Router screen does say it is connected try restarting the computer.
