Question about Yahoo Mail
Having problems with my Yahoo mail, most of the time I'm unable to login, when it does log me in, I can't open my e-mails.
Any suggestions on how to solve this problem?
Okay folks I've solved this one. The one with the gext content is undefined error. It is linked to your Compuer security program. I disabled my Norton and then clicked on my mail. Got in and changed from Beta back to Classic. This worked for me and I hope it will work for you.

All I can say is keep trying... I had the same problem for two weeks but kept trying anyway. Once I finally got in, I immediately changed back from the beta to the original version, and deleted all of my old emails from the inbox, sent, and trash folders (to minimize the amount stored in memory) This helped greatly, but still somewhat slow and unpredictable. I still have problems occasionally, but I opened a gmail account and they have an option to "get mail" from another account so all of my yahoo mail goes directly to my gmail account. Eventually I will cancel my account with yahoo, but for now at least I'm getting the mail.

Yahoo are coming out the front runner and route cause for these problems. They clearly do not see a problem as they have made no attempt to communicate and give their understanding of the situation; not even to acknowledge the problem which, to judge bt the noticeboards, many are facing. Any suggestions for an alternative as I do not want to be stuck like this again.

I'm guessing that anyone that is having problems with their Yahoo or Google Email, has recently installed Internet Explorer 8 to their pc.IE8 prevents you from opening your mail, (after you sign in, or if it lets you sign in). This is not an isolated problem, everyone is having the same problem.
You just have to uninstall IE 8, if you have Vista, go to Control Panel, then click on System Maintenance, then, under Windows Updates, click on "View Installed Updates".(Search for IE 8 and uninstall) On Vista, IE 8 is an Installed Update, click on Remove, this will remove the IE 8 Update and convert back to your old version of IE. (Probably IE 7)
If you have XP, IE 8 is classified a Program, therefore, go to Control Panel, then under Programs, click on Uninstall a Program, (Search for IE 8 and uninstall)

The problem with Yahoo! Mail is a script for chat. The slant-eyed, pointy-headed gooks at Yahoo! were notified of the cause and refuse to do anything as they're pushing everyone to use their new and lame layout that is pathetically slow.
Switch to the new layout, then switch right back and fill out the feedback, checking every box as to the reason it's lame and tell them that they're "pointy-headed gooks" who should be deported.

Please remember that Yahoo email is a free service. This means it is a complimentary facility that subscribers do not have to pay for. While the Yahoo technical services will do all they can to provide a continuous product, the sevice must always be considered as a BETA service and as such you can expect various parts of it to cause problems on occasions. Yes, it's a nuisance an we all get frustrated by it when it goes wrong, but it is free.
Always allow 24 hrs when first finding a problem before doing anything. There are more people that have screwed up a system or messed up their settings by prematurely attempting to fix something that aint broke, than credit at your local bank. Try another computer if you can, if the problem is the same, it's probably no use fiddling with things and just be patient until the problem has been solved at source. Don't flood Yahoo with complaints, all it does is clog up the system even more, unless the problem is not resolved in a reasonable timescale.
Try clearing all your temporary internet files. Also remember that you can login from several different Yahoo login sites. For example yahoo.com or yahoo.com.au or yahoo.co.uk and others, so try using different logins.
Temporarily disable your firewall and antivirus to check whether they are blocking the connection.
Also consider that some viruses, trojans and harmful files can block your connection to email.
Never just rely on one account. There are hundreds of other free service providers. If you have booked a hotel room and have not received confirmation for example, email the hotel from a different account and ask for confirmation manually. hotmail etc.

I have this problem all the time. My email client is BT Yahoo, and this is NOT a free service! I even set up my own mail server at great expense to solve the problem, but unfortunately I still have lots of mail on the old BT Yahoo system. Its about time that Yahoo sorted this one out, or BT shitched to a new email system that actually works!

I click my email and it wont open, outlook express pop up and i do not know how too get rid of it, and open my mail from yahoo
Posted on Aug 01, 2009
I think it might be useful to mention whether you are on Classic or Beta, because my totally uninformed theory is that they are taking servers off Classic and putting them on Beta in order to 'encourage' people to move over. As for being a free service - it's worth every penny!

Hi! check address in bar or click built in Yahoo Mail icon in Yahoo toolbar, then provide exact details of login and password and one more thing, you need to specify "ymail" in login id bar if you have id such as firstname.lastname@example.org

Its possible that you are using the Beta version of yahoo mail and with slow internet connection, could you change it to classic?
Posted on Sep 16, 2009
Testimonial: "how do i change it 2 classic"
Make sure that the id & password are correct or use help and support center of yahoo for resetting your password
Posted on May 27, 2009
If you see an error that says web page cant be displayed, it is possible that it is either you lost internet connection while trying to access the website or the website was down at that time. Same goes if you can't log on to your yahoo messenger.
Hope this helps!

Go to web site yahoo.com and then click yahoo mail log in page.. Since you have forgotten your yahoo id, click the "Forget your ID or password?" link on the log-in page. You'll be asked for your birth date and ZIP code or country. You will be requested for the alternate email address that you provided when you set up the account, so that that the information an be send there there.

Try changing the explorer
u can try mozilla firefox
Posted on Nov 08, 2008
Try clearing your browser's cache(temp. internet files), cookies, browsing history etc...Then reboot, opt out of the new mail and return to classic mail. If that doesn't help call this number:

"Ymail," a division of Yahoo!, is not the same as
the Yahoo! email service.
The main different revolves around the URL at the end of your email address.
Instead of "@yahoo.com" these addresses are written as "@ymail.com."
This slight variation might confuse you about how to log into your Ymail account.
The login instructions are similar to that of Yahoo! mail. Additionally, you can recover your ID or password if you have forgotten it.
Visit the Yahoo! login page by typing "ymail.com" into the URL bar.
This takes you to both the Yahoo! email sign in and the Ymail sign in.
Type your username into the "Yahoo! ID" box.
This is the part of your email address that comes before "@ymail.com."
Type in your password.
If your password doesn't work, or you don't remember it, choose the blue "I Can't Access My Account" from the bottom of the sign in box.
Choose the option that describes your situation best. Options include: "I Forgot My Password", "My Password Doesn't Work", "I Forgot My Yahoo! ID" and "My Account May Have Been Compromised". Press "Next."
Follow the on-screen directions to set a new password or recover your ID.

YYahoo can be very touchy about being logged in from 2 locations go to the last place you were able to log in and make sure you are logged out. Yahoo automatically keeps you logged in for 2 weeks at a time.
