Question about Yahoo Mail

2 Answers

Cannot log into Yahoo Mail

After I enter my email address and password, I get the following message:
name: typeError
message: 'gExtContent' is undefined
number: -2146823279
description: 'gExtContent' is undifined

When I click "OK" I get a second message:
name: typeError
message: object required
number: -2146827864
description: object required

After I click "OK" I get a bland white screen with the word "Loading..." in the upper left corner. It stays that way for hours unless I close the web connection. I tried the solution offered by another client of FixYa, where I clicked on the Web Assistant and then clicked block ads on this page, but it was already set to do this, so it had no affect. I still don't know what to do.

    I too am getting the same problem, its driving me mad, any help welcome please

    Exactly the same problem but only happening on my laptop not on my desktop which indictates it is a problem with the settings.

  • eyc1 Nov 15, 2008

    I have been using the new mail for well over a year with no problems until about 3 weeks ago when I experienced exactly the same problem. Eventually I had to switch back to Classic mail which is too cumbersome to use on a long-term basis.



    I use a laptop and for the past few days have been in Belgium instead of England where I found that, both from the office and the hotel where I was working, I had no problems at all with the new mail. So I thought the problem had resolved itself. Yet today I am back home again and exactly the same problem has happened. Can it be something to do with my home broadband connection? Yet it's the same service as I have been using for several years.



    If anyone can give me any help at all it would be much appreciated.

    I am able to log into my German Yahoo account (yahoo.de), but am unable to access my email, as the system repeatedly tries to connect but always times out. I have the same problem on all computers I have tried to log in with using in IE, Firefox, and Safari.

    Interestingly, I also have a different account (through plain yahoo.com) that is causing no trouble whatsoever, so I do not know what the solution is.

Sounds like coding problem and error between you and your computer. I honestly don't even use Yahoo! my spyware program I use which is Windows OneCare detects the site yahoo.com spyware and the http://mail.yahoo.com Yahoo! Mail Website spam, a Tracking cookie which is not all gravy, I would recommend switching to something like MSN Hotmail http://www.hotmail.com it's much better anyway and you can use it in Microsoft Outlook or FREE Windows Live Mail at http://messenger.msn.com Thanks!

SOURCE: Not able to open Yahoo

Try clearing your browser cache.

Also, try turning your firewall off, see if you can get through, then turn it back on and try again.

Trouble in login in


I would make sure that you have caps off and then you know that you are spelling it the way it is then I would tap forgotten pass code and sign it name and then they will help you with changing it so you can get in. If that does not work yahoo and gmail are free and some times you can get juno free as well but I would set up another one and then take your new e-mail address and e-mail the one you are having problems with and then you can have them send you you info to your new e-mail address.

I can't open my mail


I would sign in and then once signed in then check your mail rather then having it tell you. or read a old message and then reply to it send a message and then it will give you your new messages after you send your out going mail.

I can't open my mail


If you are on Yahoo Mail Beta (where you have two boxes-you have your email subject lines in the top box and you actually read the email in the bottom box), switch back to Mail classic. You can click on the link at the top of the page where you go to sign in and out. It isn't near as convenient as the Beta, but it will get you back into your emails. I was locked out of them for 12 days and I finally got back in after switching back last night. Good luck to ya!

Yahoo mail error


This is quite unusual and there is nothing you can do about this except to report this error to the Yahoo mail technical support team.

Go to the following page

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/forms_index.html

and from it select the form (click the page to get it), that is proper for your report.

Don't send any login information unless they ask for it (they will likely NOT ask for a password, but can ask you for your username).

This error information shows that their mail login processing scripts and possibly their database interface have been corrupted or coded incorrectly, and this is something that only they can fix, not you, the mailbox user. HTH

Log in error message


For a permanent solution, I enabled back ad blocking in IE7 Pro, accessed the Yahoo Mail account (got again the errors), and when I got the "Click here to try again" page, I used IE7Pro context menu to select "Ad Blocker / Don't filter this site".

this can also be caused when you have other ad blockers installed on your computer and also firewalls

Yahoo mail login errors


It is pssible to get to your mail by changing your account to Yahoo Classic. To do this you will need to go to Yahoo's home page and click on the 'Mail' link. When the "Error" 1st message comes up click OK. When the 2nd messgae appears move the "Error" message over the "having trouble loggin on" message located in the top right of the of the screen. Locate the OK button over this message. Very quickly, and I mean rapid, click the OK button twice. You may need to do this several times to time it right - it took me three times, When Yahoo's solutions appear just click in the Classic option. I am now back in touch witth the world and although it hasn't resolved Yahoo's problem yoou will, at long last be in touch. I'm not claiming to be a problem solver, I found this in Yahoo's answers.

Hope this resolves your problem. Good Luck
