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.

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"

What do you mean by this? "There was a problem accessing your account. Please try again in a moment.Error #1" I can not open my yahoo account.


There have been problems with accessing yahoo email accounts from several areas. This is because your current network service provider could hardly connect to yahoo's email server's and vice versa. Can you try logging into http://wap.yahoo.com

This is yahoo's alternative site to check email. Click on the Email link on the upper right corner of the site and login your username and password.

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.

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
