Question about Yahoo Mail

1 Answer

Account closure - warning, etc etc

Hi,

I received some e-mails for account closure due to congestion in the yahoo servers. They requested from me to confirm some details over e-mail - it's a fake request, right?

Thanks,

Yasen

Cannot open att yahoo


hi this is very simple
step 1.check whether the user id and password that u have typed is correct and make sure that CAPS LOCK is not on when u are typing ur user id and password but if ur user id and password is in CAPS LOCK then make sure that ur CAPS LOCK is on.
step 2.if u have checked this and nothing works simply click on forgot password and ask them to send a new password to another email address for e.x.gmail.com and after receiving the new password simply copy and paste the password in ur yahoo password tab and login this will work for sure and after loging in u can reset ur old password by clicking on the settings tab and paste the current password u received and type ur old password in the new password tab and retype it again and save ur profile
NOTE:possible reasons may be because of the server speed sometimes due to congestion of the networks ur server speed becomes slow and u may not able to log in to ur account or may be ur account may be lapsed for u may have not used it for months or year but its only conditional

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 received which is printed bellow. Is this really from YAHOO?


This is a prank email and being sent to us by scammers and non-professional hackers who try to steal your password and user information. Please don't ever reveal you identify rather simply reply them using a rude sentences. I do this often so that they will not ever send those emails again. This is a shameful practice since they even don't know how to hack, but asking an individual to give his/her pasword and username.... It's not even a kind of phishing, but direct information collection..
So don't ever give them your password and user information. These are scammers... scammers.. If yahoo has a server problem, they'll simply shift or update to a new server.. there's nothing like this that users are gonna have problem...
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

An email from Yahoo as follows and I won't pay for an answer. I just wanted Yahoo to know that this has arrived in my email and it is a lie and obviously not from the real Yahoo. Yahoo needs to trace this...


Hi!

The smartest idea would be to contact Yahoo itself and explain that you've been the target of a "phishing" attack.

Here is the link to the report form. Good luck.
