I have a yahoo e-mail adress.For past three days could not log into yahoo--but could on everything else.Technician says my computer is fine.Called yahoo--said no problem with host.Fifteen minutes later-could suddenly log on.Now-can not get e-mails to download.Can not use yahoo music-glithces and will not play thru.Try to send messages-get host down message.
What gives??? I realize my account is free-but have had to go to another site and transfer contacts.
I use yahoo for my ATT DSL mail and I'm not having any issues so I suspect something changed recently on your computer. Have you downloaded any Windows service packs (like XP SP3) or any security patches for Internet Explorer? If you think you have then I would run System Restore (start>all programs (or programs if on classic view)>accessories>system tools>system restore then choose the restore my computer to an earlier state. When asked which restore point to use choose one the day before you started having problems. If that doesn't fix it you have to look at if anything else has changed on your computer or internet setup. Like did you get a new router or DSL modem or install a software firewall? If so those could be blocking yahoo. If you are trying to do this thru a corporate network your administrator could have blocked you too, I know at my job I haven't had access to yahoo for years! If you aren't on a corporate network and nothing else has changed, your router could have flaked out, power off the router and/or modem for a least a minute then plug them back in and try again.
Hope that helps!

Fix Yahoo Email When It Won't Open Attachments
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
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.

Hi thereI have had same problem for past 2 days, BT yahoo won't let me log in to access e mails, won't accept my memorable info to reinstate or change pass word.Have checked everything and it still won't work, it's driving me crazy.Did have about 120 e mails from Mail demon saying an e mail had not been sent and deleted them all, this happened after that, is it a virus ? Any help appreciated
I think Yahoo is down, some how I also having problems logging on to yahoo in the past few days.. I cannot even access 2 of my account so far. Please bear with the trouble. Hopefully they have an answer in the upcoming days.
Thank you for using Fixya. Your recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.
This has been driving me nuts for the past couple of days too , but i`ve finally cracked it , yaaaaay. The new completely revamped Yahoo mail layout insists on your computer display settings being at least 1024 x 768. Just set it to that and you shouldn`t have any problems. I had to sign out just the once due to the mini tour it gives you messing it up , but on my second log in everything worked fine.
Just in case you`re not computer savvy , right click on your desktop picture , scroll down to `Properties` , left click that , and then click on the far right tab under `settings` , or until you see a slider bar for the display resolution , and just drag that to at least 1024 x 768. Then click `apply` and `ok`
Have not found solution--can only log onto your responses every few hours--otherwise can not log on.
Yahoo says no problems--computer tech says no problems--well there is somewhere!!!!
Can acsess all other sites but yahoo.Have had to transfer contacts to other sites as can not afford to miss important contacts.But thanks for trying.Have no intention of paying for services twice.
I have experienced this same pop-up. I have been a Yahoo mail client for the past 14 years and I can tell you with a certain level of confidence that this is something you don't need to worry a about. It's a conflict between the yahoo mail server and the yahoo messenger server.
