Yahoo mail login errors

I recently signed up for Yahoo. I have no troubles logging in to my Yahoo account but each time I try to access my Yahoo mail I get the following login errors:

Yahoo Mail experienced a login error:
Name: TypeError
message: 'gExtContent' is undefined
number-2146823279
description: 'gExtContent' is undefined

I click ok which brings me to another login error:

Yahoo Mail experienced a login error:
Name: TypeError
message: Object required
number-2146827864
description: Object required

I click ok again which brings me a a blank page. So I have no way of accessing my emails. I am getting frustrated with Yahoo Mail. I have deleted my Temp file, my history, and my cookies. I have also lowered my security settings but nothing seems to be working. Please help me. Since I can't get into yahoo mail to find out what a solution will be please email me at newtonm@imonmail.com.

    As with those above, I have had this problem since Friday 7th Nov. Posted the problem to Yahoo on 7/11/2008 and I am still awaiting their reply. There are many questions on Yahoo 'answers' but no one seems to have any suggestions. If I hear from Yahoo I'll post their solution here.

    I have 2 Yahoo accounts, both of them were Yahoo Classic. Yesterday (11/12) one of my accounts had the Type Error message as listed below. I do NOT want Yahoo Mail, but want my Yahoo Classic Mail back, but there is no prompt available to switch. Very frustrating as I need access ASAP to this account.

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

I have been having this problem since Friday 7th November and I have been in touch with Yahoo! They tell me that they are aware of the problem and are trying to fix it. In the meantime they suggest switching to Yahoo! Classic which has worked for me but I haven't got copies of sent and received e-mails in my folders dating from when I originally changed from Classic.

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.

Shaw webmail login


Now which email account is it ?.
hotmail , yahoo , msn , outlook , live mail ,gmail ?.
It is not uncommon for users to forget their user names and passwords, especially when trying to access an email account not often used.
Email providers like Yahoo! and Google are aware that users forget and have implemented a way to identify the user in this situation. In order to use this retrieval method, you must have submitted an alternate email address when you signed up for that email.

Go to the email sign-in page.
Notice the option underneath the login fields for users that have trouble signing in; in Yahoo! Mail this option is "I forgot my Yahoo! ID" and in Google Gmail this option is "Can't Access Your Account."
Click this option.
Enter the alternate email address entered when you set up up your email address.
Yahoo! Mail users also need to enter the birth date, country and postal code entered when the email address was set up. Click "Next."


Log in to your alternative email address and click the email provided.
Your email user name is available in the body of the email.
Click the link within that email to reset your email password.
To reset your email password, the provider might require that you answer your security question.

Go back to the email sign-in page and log in using your user name and new password.

How to sign in as another user + Yahoo


I assume you wish to access email in a different Yahoo! Mail account. Yahoo! allows you to access only one account at a time. To sign in as a different user, you must first sign out from the account you are currently accessing.

To sign out from Yahoo! Mail, click on the "Sign out" link in the upper left corner of the web page:

12_31_2011_9_04_34_pm.gif

Then go to the Yahoo! Mail page (http://mail.yahoo.com), and sign in with the new user ID and password.

Hope that's helpful.

I cant log on. I am always logged on via my phone but tonight when i went to check my yahoo mail it said something about not the correct password. Then I went online and tried to log on and kept being told...


this usually happens if you are still logged in into your mobile phone without logging out, you access the same account using a computer this time.

the way to avoid this next time is to log out first when you're logging into your computer from the mobile phone and vice versa.

or much worse you have clicked another url pretending to be yahoo mail login and provided your password into it, yahoo will automatically deny access protecting your account.

before you login
http://mail.yahoo.com/
click either on I can't access my account or Help below the button "Sign In"

Whenever i login that time show me below error (81003002)


It means somebody is trying to access to your account & made few failed attempts. But no worries, it's a normal security precaution which will eventually locked the account to prevent the unauthorized user from getting in successfully. This lock down usually will last 24hours after the failed attempts made by the unauthorized user.
Go to this main Yahoo! logging site & insert the correct ID & password of your account. The first attempt may prove failure, second attempts will lead you to the "word verification system" which is to make sure that you are not "bots". Follow all those procedures provided by Yahoo!. 48hours after visiting that Yahoo! main logging site, your account should return as normal. Link : http://login.yahoo.com/config/login

**NOTE: Remember to clear out your ID every time signing out of any sites that preserve your personal informations such as Facebook, Yahoo! Messenger @ Mail & etc. to prevent them from being hack or so.
Or you can simply log in using other Yahoo! servers. =) Link : http://rimmelds.blogspot.com/2008/09/unlock-yahoo-when-your-account-has-been.html

Yahoo account is saying "this id is not yet taken"


I faced the same problem today. After brain storming and my experience I found a way back to my mail. You need to install yahoo messenger and try login, might take a couple of times. If log in is successful it will show you a message " ___ new mails" click on that and you are in.
To check whether your Account name has been taken or not, just click on Sign up at yahoo and put your account name in and check for the availability. It should show this account is not available.
Alternatively you can visit "meebo.com" and you can try login there, but you can not access your emails there, though you can chat with your friends even in your university.

Trying many times!


Your account is locked when someone enters an incorrect login multiple times (usually around 30). Yahoo! locks the account for "security reasons" and you are unable to access your chat names. Cool thing is, these are a piece of cake to unlock. All you need is a list of Yahoo! servers to log in with. Every time you login, you are using what's called a server to access Yahoo! You login with a cookie, which is sort of like an information packet or ID proving that you are who you claim to be, and the account is yours.

When people attempt to log your name in multiple times with a locking tool, all they are doing is logging in over and over with an incorrect password until your cookie expires, which means you will no longer be allowed to login. So, when you find yourself locked, what you need to do is refresh your cookie. But how can you do that when the Yahoo! server you were using has blocked you?

Simple, find another server. Yahoo! has servers all over the place. There are more than I'd care to count. I'll include a pretty decent sized list with this tutorial. All you have to do is paste one of these servers in your browser and log in on the page you see. Unless you have been locked on that server as well, you will receive a fresh cookie and will be able to log in to Yahoo! Messenger again.

Tons of people try to go through their e-mail and login there to unlock an account, but a smart locker will shut down your mail server first, then cut off your chat server. Most people don't know what to do if the e-mail is blocked, so they give up trying. That's why I don't even bother with the e-mail method. I simply pick another server, log in, and I'm good to go. There are so many servers out there that it is impossible to lock them all. Even if they could, the lock is only for about 12 hours, and then you're back in business.

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
