    I tried to access it with Outlook Express and can't get it to do it. I don't know how to access Yahoo Mail with anything other than thru www.yahoo.com.

    If you have Norton/Symantec Internet Security, try uninstalling the Ad Blocker.

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.

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

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
