    I have a similar problem and would like to know how to get rid of the ads on the sides nad top of my email (hotmail). I get ads like Flirt, etc. It's very annoying. I wish it would go away.

How do i move advertisements so i call see all the email? The advertisements on the right side of the screen cover the email and i can't read what's underneath.


Its impossible to give an answer to this without knowing the following:
Are you accessing email via a PC or a smartphone?
List the particular device, operating system, and program(s) or app(s) you're using to access email.
In some cases, and Ad-blocker may be installed to eliminate persistent ads. Also, do any of these ads have an X in the corner where you can close them out? (Most advertisements cannot be "moved", btw)

How Can I have yahoo advertising entries removed from screen


Yahoo requires some form of income to fund the free mail services it offers, which is why they display advertisements in the free version of their email app. You can not disable these ads in the free version. You can upgrade to their premium email service called Yahoo Ad Free Mail. More info here:

Some one have used my email address to send advertisement to me, how can this happen and how to fixe this.


First, change the password on your email address. something "strong"...use capital and lowercase letters and numbers (XxX123ZzZ)

It sounds like someone signed up for a website/service that sends advertisements to your email address. The advertisements probably have the name of the site sending them. You might be able to go to that site and discontinue your account there.
You can also block future advertisements using filters (assuming all the advertisements have something in common...who sent it, subject, etc)
In the upper-right corner of your Yahoo! Mail page, click the Options link, then select Mail Options from the menu.
On the left side of the page, click the Filters link.
On the top of the Filters page, click the Add Filter button.
A page appears where you can define the rule and the destination for the new filter.
Type a unique name for the new filter in the Filter Name box, such as "advertisements"
Define one or more rules for the filter.
  • From header-Who sent the message.
  • To/CC header-Who the message is addressed to.
  • Subject-The subject text.
  • Body-The message or body text.
From the Move to Folder pull-down list, choose the destination folder where you want the message to go (probably SPAM)
  • Contains-the area must contain the target text. For example, the target text "Chris" would match all the following: "School project on Christopher Columbus," "I forgot to call Chris," "chris9441@yahoo.com."
  • Does not contain-the area must not contain the target text. (This is a negative condition.) For example, the target text "Chris" would match any area that does not contain "Chris."
  • Begins with-the area must contain the target text at the beginning. For example, the target string "Chris" would match "chris9441@yahoo.com," but not "School project on Christopher Columbus" or "I forgot to call Chris."
  • Ends with-the area must contain the target text at the end. For example, the target string "Chris" would match "I forgot to call Chris," but not "chris9441@yahoo.com" or "School project on Christopher Columbus."
Click the Save Changes button to save the filter.

In the worst case you can just get a new email address and tell your contacts about it.
