The tiny program that allows you to select Yahoo! Mail as the default email application for your PC is included as part of Yahoo! Toolbar version 7.2 and up for Internet Explorer (not Firefox).
If you don't have Yahoo! Toolbar v.7.2 or later for Internet Explorer installed, you’ll need to download it before proceeding with these instructions.
We’re sorry there’s not an official version for the Mac—yet.
Here’s how to set your PC to open Yahoo! Mail when you click an email link on a web page.

  1. From the “Start” pop-up menu in the lower left corner of your desktop, select “Settings” > “Control Panel”.
  2. In the Control Panel, select “Internet Options”. This opens the “Internet Properties” window.
  3. Click the “Programs” tab along the top.
  4. Click the “E-mail” pull-down menu, and select Yahoo! Mail.
  5. Click OK. Done!
Note: Yahoo! Toolbar v.7.2 and above for Internet Explorer (not Firefox) is the download that adds Yahoo! Mail to your PC's list of email programs to choose from. But after you've chosen Yahoo! Mail as your PC's default email application, Yahoo! Mail will open when you click an email link in any browser.

Unable to compose, reply, or forward in Yahoo Mail for the last 2-3 days


The inability to send, reply, or forward emails could be from a program that was installed on your computer that is now preventing the Yahoo! Mail Rich Text toolbar from launching properly. Try switching from "Rich Text" compose mode to "Plain Text" as a work around:
  1. Sign in to your Yahoo! Mail account.
  2. Click the New button to start a new email.
  3. To the far right of the "Subject" line click the "Plain Text link.
  4. Compose and send your email.
To make "Plain Text" your default when replying or forwarding, do this:
  1. Sign in to your Yahoo! Mail account.
  2. Click "Options," then select "More Options" from the pull down arrow in the upper right corner of your Mail page.
  3. Select "General" from the list of options on the left side of the page.
  4. Check the box next to; When replying & forwarding Mark original message with > (plain text only).
  5. Click the "Save Changes" button in the upper left corner.

I've got the problem of replying facebook message directly from my yahoo account. Every time I click the reply buttom from mail box, the reply will come to noreply@facebook.mail.com and my message will not be sent to the destination. So my solution is that I replace the noreply@ by the address which was sent from fb to my mail box. I hope to hear better idea from you.

After I send an email to someone, when they wish to respond, instead of coming back to me, the reply goes to a totally different email address, not mine


Try sending a message to yourself and then replying to it. The recipients might have a cached entry in their address book causing a the reply to be delivered to a different address.

If you have another email account with Hotmail or Gmail, try sending back and forth between them and your Yahoo account and use them for testing.

Does this happen with everyone or just one of your e-mail contacts?

If it's happening with everyone, you may need to contact Yahoo's support team to investigate the issue.

Hope this helps!

Message in my inbox


I have a similar problem and was unable to get into the inbox or sent items. You can get access to your mail by following the link below.

http://uk.m.yahoo.com/p/mail

This is the second time Yahoo Mail has gone haywire since October 2008 and they really ought to get their act together.

You may have problems replying from the above link though. I would recommend you try another email address to reply, that is if the reply is important.

Good luck.

Absolutely yes! There is a way to do that...i know it's disgusting sometimes to see your previous messages and feels awkward right?!

So here's what you have to do:

-After clicking the Reply button, a text will appear where u will write your reply in and automatically the message that you are going to send a reply is also there. But because you don't want it there,so just click inside the text box where your text will be written.

-Press and hold Ctrl + A for select all (in your keyboard,if the text is already highlighted,let go of the Ctrl and A keys)

Or Highlight all the text or messages(s) inside the Text box.

-And press Delete or Backspace in your keyboard.

That's it, all unwanted text and messages is deleted and you can write and send your messages now without those.

Note: You have to do it everytime you reply because that's the settings of the mail provider that we users are not allowed to change!

ENJOY AND GOODLUCK!

By the way, please this solution according to its use, specially if it works or solved your problem(s),

THANK YOU!
