Can't access my YAHOO email, even though connected to INTERNET !!!


Many times, you can recover a hacked or compromised Yahoo! account after using on-site password-recovery tools.
The process can take a few minutes to complete, but once you are finished you'll be back in your account.
If the password-recovery method does not work, then you can always contact the security group at Yahoo! Inc. via email.
Of course, you'll need access to a secondary email address to message the company's support team.

Type "login.yahoo.com" into the browser's URL address field.
You are greeted by the Yahoo! account sign in page.
Click the "I can't access my account" link in the box on the right side.
Select the "My account may have been compromised" option from the choice of sign in problems.
Click the "Next" button.
Type your Yahoo! ID and security code on the next page.
Click "Next" to continue.
Select an alternative email address to send a reset link to.
This only works if you previously added a secondary email address.
If not or the alternative email address has been tampered with, then select the "I can't access any of the above" option.
Click "Next."
Answer the security questions on the next few pages.
You will usually have to answer at least two security questions.
Enter a new password and repeat the password when prompted.
Click the "Next" button to finalize the password-reset process.

Yahoo Messenger Has Been Locked

As its name implies, Yahoo Messenger allows you to exchange instant messages with other Yahoo users.
But the software's capabilities extend far beyond one-on-one text conversations.
You can use Yahoo Messenger to participate in chat rooms, share photos, make telephone calls, video chat, play games and more.
When you experience problems accessing your Yahoo Messenger account, you may receive a message that it has been locked. Locked Accounts Yahoo places locks on Messenger accounts as a security precaution.
The locks take effect when there are multiple, failed attempts to access a user's Yahoo account.
Even if you unsuccessfully tried to to sign in to a different Yahoo product, you may find your Messenger account locked.
Unlocking Accounts
To unlock your account, go to Yahoo's sign-in page and enter your user ID and password.
When you reach your My Yahoo page, click on one of the Quicklinks you see on the left side of the page.
Leave your My Yahoo page open.
Sign into Yahoo Messenger for the Web, then try to sign into Yahoo Messenger.
If you are unsuccessful, contact customer care.
Current Versions
"Account locked" messages aren't the only sign-in problems you may experience with Yahoo Messenger.
Some users experience sign-in issues when using older versions of the software.
Yahoo engineers recommend upgrading to the newest version of Messenger.
To determine what version you have, look for the "About Yahoo Messenger" link under the Help menu.
Visit the Yahoo Messenger website to determine if this is the current version.

Other Sign-in Issues
When you have trouble signing in to Messenger, verify that your Internet connection is working. You can do this by navigating to a webpage.
If you are able to sign into Yahoo Mail but not Messenger, there may be a problem with your connection settings.
The Yahoo Help website offers troubleshooting steps for these settings.

    Default yahoo email


    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).

    Got a new computer and cannot get yahoo mail shortcut set up


    If I have understood the question correctly, it should be quite easy.

    Obviously you need to have set up an account before a shortcut can be created, assuming you have done this for your parents already, please follow the directions below.

    Firstly, Visit the Yahoo home page. Click the link that says "Mail."

    When the next page opens it will either be the login page, or if you have logged in before and saved your password, you'll go right to your webmail.

    When the login page opens, simply right click your mouse and select "Create Shortcut."

    Your computer will tell you 'a shortcut will be created on your desktop' click ok.

    You should now have a suitable desktop shortcut direct to the Yahoo login screen.

    You can then rename the shortcut whatever you want by right clicking the mouse again, on the shortcut, and selecting rename. You could type, Freds Email or something. Hope this helps.
