Question about Yahoo Mail

Can not get to Yahoo Mail

On Nov 19th my yahoo mail worked fine, then on Thurs the 20th I could no longer get in. IE reports can not display the web page. I downloaded firefox and ThunderBird with the same results. I can get to any othe internet sight and if I ping mail.yahoo.com and that is fine. If I try from my work machine I get in fine. I have disabled virud s/w and turned of the firewall. I can get the notice from IM that new mail is there but cannot getto it. Any suggestion to try would be appreciated.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try:

  • clear temporary internet files, cache, cookies using browser tools or Disk Cleanup;
  • Start, Run, type "ipconfig /flushdns" less the quotes;
  • right click on the networking icon in the systems tray (looks like a double blue blinking monitor), click on Repair;
  • in Internet Options, Advanced tab, check "Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections".
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Use a different browser other than IE.. Internet Explorer is terrible try installing Fire Fox and your issues will probably be solved.

    Go on Search bar

    Yahoo mail

    Go on site thru the cache thing

    or

    Allow Third Party cookies and Regular cookies.. I've tested it and you need cookies to go on these sites..

    make sure you are not blocking at yahoo cookies you can do this by checking your cookies exception list in internet options > Privacy > Exception List Cookies

    Try Running IE with no ad-ons

    Final Solution Call your ISP they will solve your problem if none of this helps you.

Try doing a system restore to a date before you started having the problem, if this does not fix it ,, try updating Internet Explorer.

    If you use a firewall , then try also disabling all firewalls.

    If this still does not work do the following:



    1. Create a new user from Control Panel >> Users >> Create new Account.

    2. Test Yahoo on Explorer , after logging in with the new users.

    3. If it works, move all your files and favourites to the new user account , and delete the old users when you are sure you copied everything.

Hello candle32, I just tried to load yahoo mail on IE6 for the first time and I had to install flash player. You can make sure that is installed by going to the following link: If the graphic displays then it is installed correctly. If not there should be an option to install it to your computer. Once installed try loading Yahoo mail again. Another option would be to download a different browser such as Firefox or Chrome to test them for Yahoo mail functionality. Post a reply with your results if this solution doesn't work. Thanks!

Sounds like compatibility issues. Turn on IE 8 compatibility mode or try using firefox. Or you can switch to the classic version of mail, which you can set on your yahoo page. this should give you access to your mail. If not, then please let me know what kind of computer you have, which version of Windows/Mac OS/Linux you are using and which web browser you are using to get your mail.

Yahoo mail site slow when using IE


Hi,
It looks as if you are using older version of IE.
Download IE 8 and see the improvement in speeds.

Or if you still need a faster browser, download Opera web browser.
