My E-mail address Pkaiser2006@yahoo.com was stolen and the people on my e-mail address book have been subjected to ridiculous stories. Most end with the imposters asking for money. my current address is...


sign into your old account using your original password. if the password was changed sign in using your security question(s) or hopefully you provided an alternate address that they would send you the password or the ability access your account. once you have signed back in immediately change the password. that should solve the issue. please send emails to all the people on your list telling them that your account was hijacked. if you cannot regain access to your account report it to yahoo as a hijacked account.

I had a hack attack earlier this week in which scammers got into my Yahoo! e-mail account and sent the "Horrible Trip!!!" hoax e-mail message to everyone in my Contacts file. They also installed a false...


Sorry but the hacker never went into yahoo server. He hacked your pc got your id and passwd alongwith your complete addressbook.. Through which he was able to send those mails. I would recommend you to immediately change password to you yahoo id alongwith password towards your administrators login and also your net connect password. This will suite the purpose unless the hacker has dumped the keylogger on your pc. In case he dumped the keylogger then the only option remaining with a normal user is to format his pc. Else, use an IP sniffer to see the packets sent and received when you are not using your internet for any purpose.

My e-mail is sending out messages without me sending them. I dont think that they are virus's but I need for it to stop. My friends are getting hundreds of e-mails from me at a time that I am not...


Well, that does not sound good, first thing is to change your password. The friends getting messages means that your address book may have been copied.

Be sure that the distinction is made of someone using your e-mail address in the from box. This is much more common and not actually involved with your account.

This situation is a good case for local client (Outlook, Endura, Windows Mail, Incredimail). These clients are local on your computer, so there is no online address book.

This is an indication that someone is using your e-mail address to spam people, it is called "Spoofing".

Spammers usually use legitimate e-mail addresses to spam lots of people. But some of those e-mail addresses that the spammers trying to spam are invalid. Because they're just guessing it.

Spammers usually gets a legitimate e-mail addresses by hacking the server of some stores. From the server, they could get legitimate e-mail addresses.

People's email addresses are being registered to the store server once you purchase something online. But there's no need to worry because your e-mail address will never compromise.

Here's what you need to do:
1. Access your e-mail.
2. Open the Mailer Daemon (bounced-back message).
3. Click on Submit as Spam button.

The server of your e-mail will try to locate the real sender via the IP address that the spammer's used in sending e-mails. Then the server should trace and block the sender.

But the most effective one is to create a new e-mail account and inform all your friends about your new e-mail address. And try to avoid buying things online.

Good luck and have a great day!

My yahoo ID can't sending mail


  1. Click Options in the upper-right corner of the page and select Mail Options.
  2. Under “Management”, click Mail Addresses.
  3. Click Add.
  4. In the box, enter an account name for your own reference (for example, Work or School) …and click Continue.
  5. There would be two boxes: In the first one, put the name you’d like others to see when they get email from this address. In the second one, type the Email address you’d like send from – from within Yahoo! Mail! (You’ll be asked to verify this other address in an email we will send to you there.) Click Continue.
  6. Do you want to be able to check email in this account from your Yahoo! account as well? (You can check your mail in clients like Outlook and Eudora, but currently you won’t be able to check mail in other webmail accounts with providers like Hotmail, Gmail or Yahoo. You can send from these other addresses from within Yahoo! Mail.)
    1. If yes, (you want to check mail in your Outlook or Eudora or similar client), skip to step 9.
    2. If no, you don't want to check mail in this account, you just want to be able to SEND from it from inside your Yahoo! account. Click Skip this Step at the bottom of the Add Account page and continue to step 7.
  7. On the page that opens, check to make sure you’ve entered the correct email address. If you need to make any changes, click Edit Address. If it looks fine, click Send Verification to generate the email we send to you to make sure this is an actual account you use.
  8. The “Verify Account” page opens. Here’s the easiest way to complete your setup and start sending mail from the new address:
    1. Leave this "Verify Account" page open.
    2. In a different browser window or application, sign into your other Mail account.
    3. Look for an email from Yahoo! Member Services, and open it.
    4. Copy the “confirmation code” in the last line of the email by either double-clicking it or clicking and dragging over it, then either clicking Copy from the Edit menu or pressing Ctrl + “c”. (Mac users press Command + “c”.)
    5. Get back on the “Verify Account” page and Paste that confirmation code in the box beside “Confirmation Code:” …You can paste by clicking Paste in the Edit menu, or by pressing Ctrl + “v”. (Mac users press Command + “v”.)
    6. At the bottom of the page, click Verify Account.
    7. A sign-in page opens with your ID already filled in. Sign in with your password.
    8. You’re done. See the new account in the list on your Mail Accounts page? Now you can easily send from it by opening a Compose page, clicking the down-arrow on the end of the “From:” box, and clicking the new account in the pull-down list of email addresses. People receiving the message will see it as being sent from that address.
  9. OK, so you also want to be able to check email in this other account from your Yahoo! Mail account? No problem. On the page you’re looking at, enter that account’s mail server name (currently, only POP mail servers are supported). It will be something like pop.goestheweasel.com. To find out what it is, either search that application’s Help pages for “POP” or “server” (or both), or contact that email provider directly.
  10. Next, type your user name for that account and the password. This is completely confidential! Nobody has access to this information, but Yahoo! Mail needs it to check the account. Note: Your user name is the text in your email address before the "@" symbol.
  11. We thought a good way to identify mail from different accounts would be to give it a different color in your Yahoo! Inbox. So that’s what this last part is about: pick an indicator color to mark messages received from this account.
  12. Click Setup Mail Server. You should now be looking at the “Verify Account” page. Go back to Step 7 to hopskotch your way through account verification. Once that’s done, you can do it all from Yahoo! Mail – check mail in that account and send mail from that account.
Note: Yahoo! Mail only retrieves messages from your external (POP) mail accounts when you request it. Do this by clicking the other account’s server name in the upper-left corner of the page under “Check Other Mail”.

Hi..is there a way where on a yahoo account i can block mails from unknown addressee and receive mails ONLY and ONLY from those who are on my address book


Yes, indeed there is! But you will need to add the addresses one by one.
Here is what you need to do to block certain addresses:

1) Go to your inbox and look for this option (see below). It is just below the search button. Click it and select 'Mail Options'.

2) If you have chosen correctly, then it should take you to another page.

3) On the left pane you will see a list of options to choose from. Click on the 'Spam' option.

4) Choosing the spam option will present the extended options on the right side.

5) On the right side there will be a section for 'Blocked e-mail addresses'. You can specify all the id's to block. Then onwards you will only recieve from the ones you want.

6) As a shortcut you can also select the 'View' option and select 'Messages from my contacts option'. (See figure below).

Do not give your e-mail id on random sites. They are the ones responsible for sending you spam. Examples are dating and adult sites.
Also if the yahoo! server is busy you can do this another time.

Thank you for using fixya!
