Please send solution of how to solve this problem.

I cannot open my mail...


Just or your yahoo mail or attachments ?

Yahoo Mail is an Internet-based email service that you can check from anywhere in the world where there is Internet access.

If you or someone else have already set up a Yahoo Mail account, you can open your Yahoo mailbox.
The process just takes a moment.

Open your Web browser and type "mail.yahoo.com" (without the quotes) in the browser's address bar, then press "Enter."

Type your Yahoo ID. It is the same as the front half of your email address.
For example, if your email address is "jbob@yahoo.com" enter "jbob" (without the quotes.)

Click the box labeled "Password" and type your Yahoo ID password.
Click the "Sign In" button.

Click "Inbox" to open your Yahoo mailbox.

Yahoo Email When It Won't Open Attachments

Yahoo Mail is a popular webmail service that allows people to create their own email username and have it hosted by the Yahoo network.

In addition to providing fast and reliable email, Yahoo Mail also allows you to send and receive large attachments.

If you use Yahoo Mail, and are having issues opening attachments, there are several easy troubleshooting steps you can try to get your Yahoo Mail attachments.

Sign out of Yahoo and clear your cache.
Since Yahoo! needs to access your cache to keep you logged in and to communicate with your computer when downloading attachments, a full cache can prevent Yahoo Mail from opening attachments correctly.

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Go to your browser's "Tools" or "Internet Options" menu and then select the "Delete Temporary Internet files" command to delete your cache.


Reload the page. lf you have had Yahoo Mail open for a long time, the page may have gone idle, and you may not be able to access your attachment.
Press the "Reload" (F5) button and then log back in to your account.

Ensure that the attachment is not corrupt.
If the sender did not finish uploading before they hit "Send" or there was an error during the upload, the file may be corrupted. Ask the sender to re-attach the file and send it again.

Check the file format.
Some formats are proprietary and will not open unless specific programs are installed on your computer.

For instance, if you are sent an AAC file, you will not be able to open it unless iTunes is installed on your computer.

Cannot open yahoo mail for the last 3 days


This could be a simple problem with you forgetting your password, your internet ISP problem, or your computer. Try deleting all cookies, history, cache, if needed install/re-install your browser. Restart you computer if needed. This should work at any cost. If it doesn't, then it must mean a problem with your ISP

Dear Sir/Madam, I cannot open my main


Hi,
it is just part of the glitch in Yahoo!'s new format.
Server Farm incompatibility is usually the problem.
Thousands are having many different problems with their e-mail.
This applies to almost all areas of mail (including signing in, composing, receiving, sending, attachments, photos, etc.), original and beta mail, messenger and search problems. I have been sent mail that is dated as far back as 8 days. But I do get it!!! The same thing applies to their recieving my mail, for the last few weeks.
Yahoo! is wrapping up a few remaining compatibility issues between Yahoo! Mail Beta (beta testing lasts for at least 6 months!!!) and the new Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.
1. You will have less problems with original mail if you sign in via Messenger! Go to preferences, general, then check box: Automatically sign me in when I click a Yahoo! link in Messenger.
2. Or if you don't have Yahoo Messenger:
Beta wouldn't let me in so I went to beta help and it said to click on my toolbar mail icon. So I did and it worked!
3. Or if you don't have beta mail:
http://wap.oa.yahoo.com/ can be used to sign into Yahoo!, then put yahoo back into the address bar and hit go. It will take you back to Yahoo! and you can open mail normally. Otherwise, you can open mail in wap, but it is blind. I had to go through wap each time I logged in.
4. BETA means TESTING!!!
So, it seems we have to stop using these two programs (if you installed them) or try to work around them until they finish wrapping things up. Your IE6 is still installed, so you just have to go to: Start, settings/control panel, add/remove programs and delete IE7. For Beta mail you only have to use the switch back option located in your mail inbox.Also, where you sign in by clicking on: Are you having trouble?. You can keep trying them periodically!

I have not been able to log into my yahoo email for 3 days now.


that's strange, they usually reply within a day or 2
if you're using firefox 3, yahoo mail and firefox 3 have issues so they can't be together, use an alternative browser called crazybrowser or maxthon to login into yahoo mail.
