Sounds like a firewall problem. of antivirus has blocked it.
try turning off windows firewall and antivirus and test the mail.
You could also try the Server authentication settings on the mail accounts.

is Work offline is it ticked? if so untick it
Make sure that the default browser is IE.

Open Internet Explorer browser.
From the menu bar, click File. (If menu is not shown, press "Alt" + F button on your keyboard)
Uncheck "Work offline" by clicking on it.

Probable solutions to Hotmail email access problems

  • Verify the internet connection - Is it indeed working? Try loading other web sites like Yahoo.com.
  • Delete the temporary internet files / cache of the browser. You can do this through the tools and settings section.
  • Change the HTTP settings - please refer Hotmail sign in problem for details.
  • Use a different browser - I suggest downloading and installing Google Chrome.
  • Your account may be blocked. Hotmail suspects you may be using the account to send spam and hence disables access to it. Please contact the Hotmail support staff or wait for a day and check again.
  • If you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista, download and install Windows Live Mail email program - please refer that link for step by step instructions. You then need to set up your Hotmail account - for screenshots and walkthrough read Windows Live Mail settings for Hotmail accounts.
    This is a lengthy process, no doubts; but has many advantages. You maintain a copy of the emails on your local computer which protects against accidental online deletions and account hacking and you can access your emails even without an active internet connection.

Trying to email charts to another email. Can you help me? I have wondows vista


Not enough info, but I'll try.With the file closed, Right click on the icon for it. If you don't know how, look at pic below. Put your cursor on the file and click right mouse button 1X. A drop down menu comes up. Go to send to and click on "mail recipient." Another way is to have your file open in whatever program you made it. Go to file (top of your screen) and click on it. Drop the menu down and choose SEND, or maybe export. You can choose to attach it or send it like a page. or
If you tried to email it and it won't go through, it may be too big. Right click on the file icon again. A drop down menu comes up. Click on send to. Then compressed Folder. In the future, try to tell us what kind of computer and programs you use. It would be way easier to help.

What is the POP 3 address to send email using instead of using wi


You simple CANNOT. Windows Mail no longer supports the HTTP servers used by Yahoo! and other web-based e-mail providers. Windows Mail does not permit the use a Web-based (HTTP) e-mail account on a computer that is running Windows Vista.
For an alternative, use Windows Live Mail instead of Windows Mail

loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); Windows Live Mail is an e-mail program that you install on your computer. Windows Live Mail stores messages on your computer. This means that you can access, read, and compose e-mail messages even when you are not connected to the Internet.

Windows Live Mail works with popular Web-based e-mail services such as Hotmail, AOL mail, Google mail, and Yahoo! mail. Windows Live Mail is built to automatically configure many popular e-mail services.

I am on a lap top so how do i get through on a lap top


any time you are on anypage and it has a link to email them OR somebody, internet explorer (IE), will open your default mail program and ask you to fill out the email message BUT, you have not setup THAT email program (in XP it is most likely Outlook express, in Vista it is Windowsmail). SO if it is not set up right with all the info that your (ISP, (insternet service provider), like incoming mail server and the outgoing mail server, and the user name and pasword), the program will have no idea how to send that new email message that you triggered when clicking on the craigs list link). to find out which program is by default is trying to open up, while you are in IE, ( if that is in windows XP), click tools/internet options/prgrams and you will see it in front of email program., if you have VISTA, then click --> tools/internet options/prgrams/set programs/set default programs/then click on Windows mail and set it up as your Default prgram for email sending and receiving. ) but you need to make sure you get all the info from you ISP first, it a matter of fact they might be able to help set it up for you (depends on your ISP of course).
good luck

I can't seem to send web pages and links.


You cannot send links directly using Yahoo (unless you use Outlook or Mail to send email), there are two ways to do it:

1. select the link in your browser, copy and paste it directly into your message
  • Copy and paste method 1 - click on link, rightclick, select copy, go to message, right-click select paste
  • Copy and paste method 2 - click on link, CTRL-C, go to message, CTRL-V
The above can look ugly

prettier:

write your message and select part of the text
Click the little Icon that looks like earth with a tiny chain under it
copy and paste the link you want in the box that came up

for example:
you have written click here to see it
highlight the word here
click the icon
The word here will now be a link to the address you pasted (or wrote) in the box

Hope this helps

Can not send page by email


If you are running Vista,you have a tool called the SNIPPING TOOL,you will find this in the ACCESSORIES folder in the start menu.The snipping tool is a fantastic utillity.I suggest you RIGHT CLICK on it in the Accessory folder and select add to "QUICK LAUNCH" Which is the 2 little arrows in the bottom right hand side of the taskbar,this will enable you to use it quickly,you could also create a short cut to the d/top. What this tool does is lets you take a snippet (photo) of what ever you wish on the screen. When you have the required "snippet" click the save icon (top left of snippet screen) and choose where you want to save the Snippet to. I Created a new folder in my Pictures File Purposely for my snipetts. I hope you find this helpful,if not i will be happy to find another solution for you. Happy E-mailing.

Default yahoo email


If you use Yahoo! Mail for all your email needs, some of the amenities of Windows seem to elude you. A click on an email link in your browser brings up Outlook Express or another desktop email program, not a new message in Yahoo! Mail. Trying to send a file directly from Word, OpenOffice.org or another office application yields the same, unsatisfactory result.

Fortunately, the state of dissatisfaction need not be permanent. It will be overcome by making Yahoo! Mail act as your default email program in Windows, which, if you use Windows 95 or later is an easy thing to do.
Make Yahoo! Mail Your Default Windows Email Program

To set up Yahoo! Mail as your default email client in Windows:

* Download and install Yahoo! Messenger.
* Select Tools | Internet Options... from the menu in Internet Explorer.
* Go to the Programs tab.
* Make sure Yahoo! Mail is selected under E-mail.
* Click OK.

Yahoo! as Default Email: Does Not Work under Windows Vista

Unfortunately, Yahoo! Mail as your default email program may be hard-wired to use Internet Explorer instead of your default browser, and it does not work in Windows Vista.
Make Yahoo! Mail the Default Email Composer in Mozilla Firefox

In Mozilla Firefox, you can turn to the Mailto 2 Webmail script for Greasemonkey to have Yahoo! Mail handle email links (even under Windows Vista).
