If you use Yahoo! Mail for all your email needs, some of the amenities of Windows seem to elude you. A click on an email link in your browser brings up Outlook Express or another desktop email program, not a new message in Yahoo! Mail. Trying to send a file directly from Word, OpenOffice.org or another office application yields the same, unsatisfactory result.

Fortunately, the state of dissatisfaction need not be permanent. It will be overcome by making Yahoo! Mail act as your default email program in Windows, which, if you use Windows 95 or later is an easy thing to do.
Make Yahoo! Mail Your Default Windows Email Program

To set up Yahoo! Mail as your default email client in Windows:

* Download and install Yahoo! Messenger.
* Select Tools | Internet Options... from the menu in Internet Explorer.
* Go to the Programs tab.
* Make sure Yahoo! Mail is selected under E-mail.
* Click OK.

Yahoo! as Default Email: Does Not Work under Windows Vista

Unfortunately, Yahoo! Mail as your default email program may be hard-wired to use Internet Explorer instead of your default browser, and it does not work in Windows Vista.
Make Yahoo! Mail the Default Email Composer in Mozilla Firefox

In Mozilla Firefox, you can turn to the Mailto 2 Webmail script for Greasemonkey to have Yahoo! Mail handle email links (even under Windows Vista).

I cant open my ym account....


I suggest you to check whether your email address and password is correct or not, by logging in at the www.yahoomail.com website, If you are able to login then your account exists and the email address and password is correct.
If it shows wrong password, try forgot password.

If you are able to login to your account in website, only you cannot login in yahoo messenger, There might be some problem in yahoo messenger, I suggest you to download the recent version of yahoo messenger and try logging in, if problem persists check your internet connectivity, Sometimes we couldn't login if there is a problem in internet connection.
There may also be problem with windows firewall settings.

And also check whether the yahoo messenger is added as exception in the windows firewall or not, If not add the yahoo messenger to exception list.

I can not see the conversations of others & If I write anything and enter It is not appear in the screen. How to solve the problem?


Its virus infection on yahoo messenger.
Uninstall completely any yahoo softwares including yahoo messenger from your computer.
Acquire or download fresh installer and reinstall on your pc.
If your computer is networked. Separate first your computer from other network PC when reinstalling your yahoo softwares.
If that did not work, you have already reinstall the yahoo messenger and still cannot see the message on your ym window.... then I suggest you reformat your PC.

How to chat using telnet in vista


Telnet is not the greatest programme to use for chat. However, Vista does not have telnet enabled as default. To install it go to:

Start menu->Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

on left select Turn windows features on and off

After a while a box will appear = look for Telnet Client and select it and press ok

Now go to Start Menu->Programs->Accessories
select Command Prompt
enter telnet and the IP Address of the computer you wish to connect with
-----------------------------------------

However, for chat I would suggest the more traditional chat programmes.

MSN Messenger (Free from Internet)
Yahoo Messenger (Free from Internet)
ICQ Messenger (Free from Internet)
AIM Messenger (Free from Internet)

If most of your email contacts are using Hotmail then use MSN, http://download.live.com/?sku=messenger
if they use AOL then use AIM http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
If they use Yahoo then use Yahoo Messenger http://uk.messenger.yahoo.com/
Otherwise use ICQ http://www.icq.com/

Happy Chatting
