You may have a virus or similar - what does the box actually say?

No voice in any chatrooms but i got sound when the pc starts up


Most chatrooms are actually text-only chat. It saves resources. If you know there's supposed to be voice available and you have a recommended chat program (try searching MaximumPC.com for chat program notes) then maybe it's curable. The program isn't in the OS? Perhaps you're striving to remove Yahoo stuff? It takes a few bullets, doesn't it? Just remove it like malware with Malwarebytes or AVG32 or Anvir tools, and/or the program's uninstall tool so the Yahoo Robin Hood (and Friar Tuck, who restarts Robin's KO'd self) gets supressed, not being you know, a real force for good.

Tell ya what; double-check your audio mixer settings to make sure nothing is muted, get those bogus programs out of there, and your speakers on or whatever, working with Peggle demos etc. Then mention your particular program instead of the eMachines thing. That is, re-post in a forum for your chat program as well as clarifying here what's gone wrong.

If you're unable to send email, try using port 587 when sending via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. Here's how to make this change:
  1. From the "Tools" menu, select "Accounts."
  2. Select your Yahoo! POP account and click the "Properties" button.
  3. Click the "Advanced" tab.
  4. Next to "Outgoing server (SMTP"), change port 25 to 587.
  5. Click "Apply." Then click "OK" and "Close."

Hi,

If you are referrring to a yahoo chatroooms. Everytime you join you will need to click on the clink provided to you in the chatroom window to verify the terms and condition.

Yahoo is helping chatters to help cut down on spam and bots, you'll be asked to verify your account before entering a chat room. Just click on the verification link when you enter a chat room to get started

Keep me posted.

I just got done setting up my windows mail and when i tried to send mail the error message reads..The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'hello', Account: 'Mail', Server: 'smtp.mail.yahoo.com',...


Since you have not signed up for Yahoo Mail Plus, they do not allow you to use another program to access your mail. They want you to use their WebMail Page so that they can serve you ads to pay for their service. They have an excellent Email Web Page, so it's a small price to pay.

But if you really need POP access and don't want to pay to get it, you could consider using Gmail. They allow POP access for free. Just setup a new Gmail account and go into the settings on the Gmail Webpage. From there, you can enable POP access. Be sure to write down the server information you will need to enter into your Email Program.

Good Luck with whatever choice you make!
