I think my account locked


One of the drawbacks of free email services is that they're easy to forget you have an account. Yahoo! Mail is just one of those free email services.

Say a few months go by, you've turned your attentions elsewhere, but you remembered you have a Yahoo! account and you want to check your email.

But after you log in, it informs you that your Yahoo! Mail is no longer active. What do you do?

Log in to your Yahoo! Mail account as usual.
A message will appear that says your account has been deactivated due to inactivity.

Reactivate your Yahoo! Mail by clicking on the "Reactivate Your Yahoo! Mail address" link that is located at the bottom of the page.

Sign into your account at least once a month to avoid automatic deactivation by Yahoo! in the future.

Cant access any of the folders but inbox


A cookie is a string of information that is sent to your computer from each website that you visit. Cookies are harmless. Why would you want to delete them then?

The reason you would want to delete cookies from your computer is that they can store information such as user name, IP address, password, email address, shopping cart items and any strings of information that can be related to your identity.

Cookies that are on your computer may slow your computer down.
Therefore you may want to delete cookies from your browser.

Here is a very simple guide on how to delete cookies manually from your computer. Click on "tools" in your browser.
This is usually located in the upper right corner of your browser.

Click on Internet options.
This will appear in the drop down box and is usually at the bottom.

Under the "General" tab look for "Browsing History."

Under this heading you can click "Delete" to have the computer delete all cookies for you automatically however to delete the cookies manually click on the "Settings" tab

Click on the "View Files" tab under the "Temporary Internet Files and History Settings" box that pops up.

When you do a second box will pop up with a list of cookie containing files.
This may take a few seconds to load so be patient while waiting for the cookie files to load.

Highlight any cookie file that you would like to delete.
You can highlight more than one at a time by holding down the 'Ctrl" button on your keypad

Delete the files that are highlighted by clicking on the "delete this item" located to the left in the same box. As soon as you do you will see the selected files disappear.

When you are done just "X" off; this completes your task of manually deleting cookies.

You might also do a disk clean up click start click on computer to open right click on your hard drive usually C: select properties in the general tab select disk clean up click ok you can view files to be deleted.
If you habitually read some email and then forget about it, you should have a steadily growing collection of unread messages in your mailbox.

When a time comes that you want to sort the mail, you may find the unopened missives piled together with what you have already read.

Instead of wading through hundreds, perhaps thousands of messages to get what you need, tell Yahoo! to show you only what you want to see.

Log in to Yahoo! Mail.
Click "Inbox" either on the folder pane on the left or in the middle of the page.

Click "Unread Messages" above the list of messages.
Click "Next" or "Previous" to browse the messages, if there is more unread mail than can be displayed on a single page in the inbox.

Look on the folder pane on the left.
If you see any folder name in bold with a number in parentheses next to its name, it contains unread mail.

Click that folder to open it.

Yahoo! Mail Beta

Log in to Yahoo! Mail Beta.

Click "Inbox" on the left pane under "Compose message."

Click the purple color to the left of the "From" tab above the messages list.
This displays only unread mail.

Yahoo mail overview
Fix 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.

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.

    Sign to my email but cannot open mail get message session has expire sign in again.


    You'll see this message if it has been more than eight hours since you last signed in to Yahoo! and you did not click the "Sign Out" link at the end of your session. We display this message and ask that you log in again as a safeguard for Yahoo! Business Email users, specifically those who use public or shared computers. Other possibilities:
    • Check your account information. If you've chosen to be prompted for a password more frequently than every eight hours, your session will expire after the specified amount of time. To change this:

      1. Sign in to your account at http://mail.yourdomain.com/ (be sure to replace "yourdomain" with your domain name).
      2. Click the "My Account" link at the top of the page. You'll be prompted to verify your password.
      3. On the "Review My Account Information" page, click the "Edit" button or link to the right of "Member Information."
      4. Under General Preferences, toward the bottom of the page, select your "Prompt for Password" setting in the pull-down menu. You may choose everythign from every 15 minutes to every 2 weeks.
      5. Click the "Finished" button to save your changes.

    • Please note that opening another browser window and signing in to a second Yahoo! account will automatically sign you out of the first. When you return to the first account, clicking on any link will give you the "Your login session has expired" message.
    • If you repeatedly receive the message "Your login session has expired" or are repeatedly cycled back to the sign-in screen with no error message after entering your ID and password, your problem may be caused by a difficulty setting your user cookie. (A cookie is a small piece of information stored by your browser to help identify who you are. Yahoo! Business Email uses cookies to keep you logged in to your account as you move from page to page.) If your cookie isn't being accepted correctly, you'll be logged out of your account as soon as you move to a different page. This will prevent you from signing in or staying signed in. There are a number of reasons why your cookie may not be set properly. We have listed the possible reasons and their solutions below. We recommend trying the steps in order, as they are listed from easiest-to-fix to most difficult.
      • The date on your computer is set incorrectly. Since cookies rely on dates, a computer with an incorrect date may mislead your browser into forgetting about your cookie. To fix this, set the correct time and date on your computer.
      • You have installed an application that monitors/blocks cookies from being sent. This may include virus protection software. To remedy this, simply disable the monitoring application before logging in.
      • You are behind a firewall that doesn't allow you to receive cookies. This is sometimes the case for users connecting from a business intranet that limits cookie acceptance for security reasons. Contact your system administrator for more information.
      • Your browser is not set to accept cookies. Most browsers have the option of accepting all cookies, showing an alert before accepting a cookie, or not accepting cookies at all. In order to use Yahoo! Business Email, your browser must be set to accept all cookies without alerts (don't select the option that will display an alert before accepting cookies). To adjust this setting, we've provided instructions for several browsers. When making adjustments, be sure to confirm any changes you make by clicking the "OK" button in the Options windows. Internet Explorer 6.x and higher:

        1. Click "Tools."
        2. Click "Internet Options," and then the "Privacy" tab.
        3. Move the slider up or down depending upon your desired level of security.
        Internet Explorer 5.x:

        1. Click "Tools," then "Internet Options."
        2. Select the "Security" tab and click the button labeled "Custom Level."
        3. Scroll down to "Cookies" and make sure that the box next to "Accept cookies" is checked.

    Cannot log in because it says that it refused cookies


    In order to use Yahoo mail (and other like Hotmail), you need to allow 'third- partes cookies' to be created/used in the specific browser you are trying to use. The Cookies setting are done under your specific browser Option and you can use 'Help' to find out how to get there. For Internet Explorer, use 'Internet Options' -> 'Privacy' tab -> set setting to 'Medium' will normally work otherwise use 'Advanced' option if you wish to program it yourself. Please note: if your browser allows any cookies and you are still having problem, then your Firewall is stopping your access. Hope it helps.

    There is no known problem in Yahoo mail right now. It might be just settings on your computer. Try deleting some browser cookies and files. You may also try disabling any proxy settings on your browser. Lastly, try checking for viruses.

    Hope it helps!
