The limit depends on the space provided to you by Yahoo! Mail. Use the Spam Report button for unsolicited mails.

Yahoo Mail registers in Mail but cannot access the Email itself - also personal folders, delete boxes do not appear 2nd time it's happened


Uninstall yahoo mail from your computer. Just don't reinstall without uninstalling it first. Once it has been uninstalled, go to yahoo's web page to get a new download of Mail. Reinstall Yahoo Mail and that should fix it.

I am tying to set up yahoo account on thunderbird. i can send email but not receive.. i have tried changing server settings and port settings


Much more common is a sending issue. Often you have to send through your ISP server, contact them for what that server is, if you have sending issues.

I found directions for Outlook, which should be similar to Thunderbird:

Look closely at requires authentication settings....

Note: You must be a Yahoo! Mail Plus user to read Yahoo! Mail in an email reader program such as Microsoft Outlook. Click here for information about subscribing to Yahoo! Mail Plus.
To read your Yahoo! Mail Plus using Microsoft Outlook 2002 or 2003, follow these steps:
  1. From the Tools menu, select Email Accounts.
  2. Select Add a new email account and click Next.
  3. Select POP3 and click Next.
  4. Enter the following information:
    • User Information

      Your Name: Type your name as you'd like it to appear when you send an email message.

      E-Mail Address: Type your Yahoo! Mail Plus email address (for example, testing80@yahoo.com).
    • Server Information

      Incoming mail server (POP3): Type plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com.

      Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Type plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
    • Login Information

      User Name: Type your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").

      Password: Type your Yahoo! password.
    • Select the Remember Password checkbox if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
    • Do not select the Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
  5. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  6. Select the Outgoing Server tab:
    • Select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox.
    • Make sure that Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected.
  7. Click the Advanced tab:
    • Under Incoming Server (POP3), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox. The number in the Incoming Server (POP3) field usually changes automatically from 110 to 995. If it doesn't, type 995.
    • In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) field, type 465. Under Outgoing Server (SMTP), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox.
    • If you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on both the Yahoo! Mail server and on your computer, select the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox. If you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! server once Outlook has downloaded them onto your computer, leave the box unchecked.

      Note: After your messages are deleted from the server, we cannot retrieve them.
  8. Click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  9. Click Finish to close the Add New E-mail Account dialog box.
  10. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.
Troubleshooting tips
If you still can't send Yahoo! Mail from Outlook, you might be accessing the Internet through an ISP that is blocking the SMTP port. If this is the case, try using port 587 when sending email via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. To make this change:
  1. From the Tools menu, select Account Settings. The Account Settings dialog box appears.
  2. Select your Yahoo! Mail Plus account and click Properties. The Change E-mail Account dialog box appears.
  3. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) box, type 587.
  6. Click Apply, and then click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  7. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.

How do I get back to classic mail?


Good Day Margaretcua!

I hope this information gets to you.

Here's a way to change back to classic Yahoo Mail.

Change first the display settings of your desktop. Change it to lower resolution. 800 x 600 is recommended.

1. Click the "Start" button on the bottom left of your computer to display the Start menu. Choose the "Control Panel" option from the right side of the Start menu. The "Control Panel" window will open onto your desktop.

2. Double-click the "Display" icon from the Control Panel to open the "Display Properties" dialog box. You can then select the "Settings" tab from the top of the dialog box.

3. Slide the bar under the "Screen resolution" setting of the "Display Properties" dialog box to decrease the screen resolution. Choose 800 x 600.

4. Click the "Apply" button at the bottom of the "Display Properties" dialog box to apply the settings.

5. Choose the "OK" button. The "Display Properties" dialog box will close and the settings will be saved.

REMEMBER: All icons and display image of your desktop will get bigger.

Next, open your internet browser and log in to your Yahoo mail Account.
The New Yahoo Mail does not support lower resolution of display setting. So it will ask you to switch back to Classic Yahoo Mail.
You will find the two links to switch back to Classic Yahoo Mail on the lower right portion of the page.
Click it.
The next time you open your Yahoo Mail, it's in classic mode.

You can return to your original display setting of desktop once the switching was successful.

Enjoy the old Yahoo Mail.
Please do rate my answer.
Thanks for asking Fixya.

Cann't not receive some mail inside the box


Generally it will take some time to reach the yahoo mail box when u send any mail. If u cant receive it properly then check whether you are entering the correct email address when u are sending the mail to your yahoo account.
