Question about Email Services

Can't load my email messages in yahoo mail anymore since they introduced the new email format on Oct. 1st

I use IE7. I have always been able to work in yahoo mail. Now yahoo lets me get my mail, but won't let me read it, won't let me into my yahoo, when it asks me for my password intermittently, it won't read it again, even tho it read it when it downloaded my mail, can get into ask questions...gives me an Invalid XML error -"the server failed to send back valid XML -XML parsing error.

I can get into my email and read it on my laptop, but not on my daughter's desktop computer which I like to use because the screen is bigger.
Thx. dee

    my issue only comes up when I try to open emails. Then I get the same xml error everyone else gets with the long code, expecting a semi-colon, etc. I opened a ticket today, but given their history, I'm not sure I'll get a response anytime soon.



    My inbox has been besieged the last 3 months with spam and no one at Yahoo has even responded...WTF, Yahoo?

    But only in Linux. I use Firefox in Xp and Vista, but in Ubuntu 8.1 and 9.04 have the same problem. It's a showstopper.

    So far, websearches bring up questions, but no solutions.

    Same deal: works on laptop, not on desktop. What gives? I can get into the mail itself, but when I open an email, the content section is flat empty.

My guess is that it is to do with Microsoft updates to Internet Explorer. If IE is updated in a way that is not compatible with Yahoo Mail then it could fail. When this problem happens it does not affect all versions of Windows. E.g. I recently found the problem on Windows 2000, but when logging in on a Vista machine it was OK. This is perhaps why the problem keeps appearing on different versions of Windows at different times and then some time later the problem goes away when Yahoo fix the problem. What I did also was switch to Firefox on the Windows 2000 machine and there was no problem. i.e. The solution is, when this problem occurs, switch to a different browser like Firefox or Opera. Better still, don't use IE at all.

Check your privacy settings and make sure cookies are allowed. I use Ubuntu and after allowing a pop-up, I couldn't read my mail. Then I went into Preferences - Edit and removed Yahoo.com from the Exception window (even though Yahoo was marked Allow). Everything worked fine after that.

Can't get most of my attachments to appear


With the Web-based Yahoo! Mail service, you can attach to your email message a saved Web page or another document in HyperText Markup Language format.
When you attach an HTML file in this way, Yahoo! Mail won't display the HTML content of the attached file in the email message body.
To view the attachment, you must click the attachment tab above the email message.Yahoo! Mail and HTML
Yahoo! Mail is a Web-based service and it's fully compatible with the coding languages used to design and display Web content, including HTML and XML, Extensible Markup Language.
This means emails sent or received in Rich text or HTML format include clickable hyperlinks, graphics and other Web design elements.
However, Yahoo! handles emails with HTML attachments in a different way to email messages formatted with HTML.

About Yahoo! Mail Attachments
Like most email programs and online services, Yahoo! Mail offers an attachment feature for adding images, video clips, audio files and HTML document to email messages.
Some email programs display the content of the attached file in the email message body, but Yahoo! Mail doesn't provide this feature for any file attachment, whether it's an image, video clip or HTML document.


Viewing Yahoo! Mail Attachments When you attach an HTML document or another file to your Yahoo! Mail message, an "Attachments" button labeled with a "Paperclip" icon appears below the email address fields and above the email message body.
Clicking the "Attachments" button opens a pane containing a list of all files attached to the email. The email sender or recipient can open each attachment to view the files by clicking the file name.

Considerations

When sending a Yahoo! Mail with an attachment, always explain the content of the attachment in the main body of the email message.
A brief explanation will encourage the recipient to click and open the attachment to view the HTML document.
Bear in mind that many email services automatically block HTML attachments because of the security risk of opening HTML files, which can contain viruses, phishing scams or open Web pages with inappropriate content.
If you want to share a favorite Web page with a friend or contact, include a hyperlink to the Web page rather than a saved copy as an HTML attachment.

I cannot open yahoo messages that are older than Oct 29, 2009 and newer than around Oct 2008. All others open fine.


Contact Yahoo thru their own site link in Yahoo mail. The tech experts will "Live Chat". They will confirm it's you, check your system, ask you to log-out then log in again, it should then be fixed.

maybe you have switched this account to classic. or there are such mail or app which is not supported by your current browser. please try switching browser. Since, IE6 and IE7 is not currently supporting many new features , you should consider firefox, chrome or safari browser, if you are using IE.

I tried to download yahoo messenger, and, could not. Ever since then, everytime I go to my yahoo mail, it will let me access and read my mail. But, when I try to forward anything, I always get bumped off line, and, have to start all over. This is getting very annoying.

Yahoo is still having some problems at the moment. Suggested cures range from Update Adobe Flash Player and Java script to clear IE7 cache, cookies, and browsing history. Different things seem to work for different people. It's causing attachments to not show, 999 errors where it won't let you do a particular action and some people cannot send receive delete or move mail. It's not just Vista either it's happening to some of us on XP. If all else fails go back to classic mail Hope this helps.
