Question about Yahoo Mail

2 Answers

E-a-mail security problem?

Often when I log into my e-mail account I receive the following pop-up message:
-----------------------------
: The Page at http://ca.f882.mail.yahoo.com Says:

You have been disconnected from chat because you have signed in to messenger from another computer or device.
------------------------------

I don't use Chat, but i do leave my mail logged in on my computer for the day and must log-in again after 24 hours.

I don't log into e-mail from other computers.

Is someone accessing my account to chat under my name or is this something to do with the way a go in and out of Yahoo mail?

I have experienced this same pop-up. I have been a Yahoo mail client for the past 14 years and I can tell you with a certain level of confidence that this is something you don't need to worry a about. It's a conflict between the yahoo mail server and the yahoo messenger server.

Trying To set up yahoo mail in my HTC phone need details


Hi,

You will need adjust the mail application's POP settings to get your Yahoo! Mail messages into it.

POP access is a service for owners of one of the following:


Yahoo! Mail Pop Access & Forwarding

Yahoo! Mail
Plus Premium Services
A Broadband account
A Small Business account

Please note that access to IMAP servers is not available.


To use an email client or application to send and receive Yahoo! Mail messages, you may need to designate a new incoming (POP) mail server and a new outgoing (SMTP) mail server. Consult your owner's manual for instructions on designating servers in the email application.


If you can't add new POP or
SMTP servers, you will need to change your current server settings.

Before you make any changes, write down your current settings. You might need to revert to your original settings later if you decide to send and receive messages from your other email addresses.


The following steps will help you find the POP settings for your Yahoo! Mail account and configure it:


Log onto your Yahoo! Mail account from a PC.

Click Options > Mail Options.
Click POP & Forwarding.
Click Set up or edit POP & Forwarding.
Click POP Settings.

Note your Server Setting information. Your phone email client or application will ask for these settings:


Incoming Mail Server (POP3)- for example, pop.mail.yahoo.com.

Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)- for example, smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
Account Name/Username, your Yahoo! Member ID- for example, myuserID.
Email address, your Yahoo! Mail address- for example, myuserID@yahoo.com.
Password, your Yahoo! Mail password- for example, l0ngitudin*l

Notes:


POP server settings may change from time to time and you should confirm the current POP server settings in Yahoo! Mail if it is not working.


When using
Microsoft Outlook, replace the "@" in your address with "%".

As an alternative to configuring Yahoo! Mail POP mail configurations, go to:


http://mobile.yahoo.com/mail

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mobile/...

Enter your phone number and send a link to your phone; the best Yahoo! Mail experience will be suggested to you.
Have a nice day

How to receive mails from two yahoo accounts to one place?


Hi Vinay,

You need to configur your microsoft outlook or windows mail or outlook express in such a way that you recive mails from both the account to one inbox. Follow the below steps if you have ms outlook.

Microsoft Outlook Express
Yahoo! Mail users can read their email in Outlook Express by subscribing to the Yahoo! Mail Plus service. This service allows you to use Outlook Express or another POP3 client to access and manage your Yahoo! Mail messages.

Outlook Express allows you to add a new email account to your existing profile. This means you do not have to replace your current settings in order to send and receive Yahoo! Mail messages. Here's how:

1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
2. Select the "Mail" tab.
3. Click the "Add" button.
4. From the Add menu, click "Mail."
5. In the text box labeled Display Name, type your name and click "Next."
6. In the Email Address box, type your Yahoo! Mail address (be sure to include "@yahoo.com") and click "Next."
7. Under "My incoming mail server is a..." select "POP3."
8. Type "pop.mail.yahoo.com" in the Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) Server box.
9. Type "smtp.mail.yahoo.com" in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server box.
10. Click "Next."
11. In the Account Name box, type your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
12. In the Password box, type your Yahoo! Mail password.
13. If you want Outlook Express to remember your password, check the "Remember password" box.
14. Do not check the boxes labeled "Log on using Secure..."
15. Click "Next."
16. Click "Finish."

Important: The Yahoo! Mail SMTP server now requires authentication. To turn this setting on:

1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
2. Select the "Mail" tab.
3. Double-click the account labeled "pop.mail.yahoo.com."
4. Select the "Servers" tab.
5. Check the box next to "My Server Requires Authentication."
6. Click "OK."

To control deletion of messages from the Yahoo! Mail Server:

1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
2. Select the "Mail" tab.
3. Double-click the account labeled "pop.mail.yahoo.com."
4. Select the "Advanced" tab.
5. In the Delivery section at the bottom of the window, check "Leave a copy of messages on server" if you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on the Yahoo! Mail server as well as on your local computer. Do not check this box if you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! Mail server once you have received them in Outlook Express.


If your ISP blocks port 25 or if you're unable to send email, then you will need to use port 587 when sending via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. To make this change, please follow the directions below:

1. From the "Tools" menu, select "Accounts"
2. Select your Yahoo! POP account and click on the "Properties" button
3. Click on the "Advanced" tab
4. Next to "Outgoing server (SMTP), change port 25 to 587
5. Click "Apply", then click "OK" and "Close"

I recently removed my computer (my user) password and now yahoo mail (bruce.bowers@ymail.com) has been blocked with Windows security message " Log on to Pop.mail.yahoo.com.au - please verify that both user...


Bruce, Windows Security does not have the ability to block and e-mail account. The real problem is, is that you just forgot what the password is.

Same thing you will get from your e-mail client like Outlook 2003 or 2007, if you can't provide the correct password.

Go to the login page of Ymail and use the link "I can't access my account". Answer the questions, follow the instructions, and provide an alternate e-mail address, and the password will be e-mailed to you.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding your e-mail problem.

Thank you and good luck!

Windows mail gave me this error message: Account: 'yahoo mail', Server: 'plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR popgate unknown command', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server...


If you have Yahoo! Mail Plus (a paid upgrade), you can access those messages directly from a standard email program (such as Outlook, Windows Live Mail, etc.). You need to configure the account settings in your email program for the Yahoo service.

The settings for incoming mail are:
Incoming (POP) server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
Port: 995
Security: SSL

For more on Yahoo server settings, see this Yahoo help page:

I've just changed from classic yahoo mail to the all-new mail and now i can't access my e-mail account!! I either want to be able to log in to the new version or find a way to revert back to classic mail -...


The new Yahoo mail is having all kinds of problems; from inability lo log in to links to messages not working.

I just found a possible solution; it worked for me:

- Open the Yahoo main page, and log in with your user account and password.
- Go to the following link: http://us.mg1.mail.yahoo.com/dc/optout?script=no and click on "yes" to opt out.

This is supposed to revert your mail to the classic interface, hopefully you'll be back to working before.

I cannot configure my gmail account with outlook


To use your Gmail e-mail account in Outlook, you must first make sure POP3 support is enabled in Gmail, and then you can add it to Outlook.

  1. Log in to your Gmail account.
  2. At the top of any Gmail page, click Settings.
  3. In the Mail Settings window, click Forwarding and POP.
  4. In the POP Download section, select Enable POP or all mail or Enable POP only for mail that arrives from now on.
  5. Click Save Settings.
  6. In Outlook, on the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
  7. Click Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.
  8. Click POP3, and then click Next.
  9. Under User Information, do the following:
  10. In the Your Name box, type your full name the way you want it to appear to other people.
  11. In the E-mail Address box, type your e-mail user name followed by @gmail.com.
  12. Under Server Information, do the following:
  13. In the Incoming mail server (POP3) box, type pop.gmail.com.
  14. In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, type smtp.Gmail.com.
  15. Under Logon Information, do the following:
  16. In the User Name box, type your full e-mail address, including @gmail.com.
  17. In the Password box, type your password.
  18. Select the Remember password check box. Note You have the option to have Outlook remember your password by typing it in the Password box and selecting the Remember password check box. Having Outlook remember your password means that you won't have to type your password each time you access the account; however, it also means that the account is vulnerable to anyone who has access to your computer.
  19. Click More Settings.
  20. On the General tab, under Mail Account, type Gmail.
  21. Click the Outgoing Server tab, and then select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication check box.
  22. Select Use same settings as my incoming mail server.
  23. Click the Advanced tab, and then under Server Port Numbers for both Incoming server (POP3) and Outgoing server (SMTP), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) check boxes.
  24. Change the Outgoing server (SMTP) port number to 465. The Incoming server (POP3) port number should change automatically to 995 when you select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) check box.
  25. Click OK.
  26. To verify that your account is working, click Test Account Settings. If there is missing or incorrect information, such as your password, you will be prompted to supply or correct it. Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
  27. Click Next, and then click Finish
  • Do not select the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) check box.
