How do I get my E-mail


If you installed Google Chrome, that is a web browser. Both Google and Yahoo are web based services that load on the browser. Just type in Yahoo on any browser and use like any web page.

They both also have tool bars. Same principal. gl

Try the following solutions.
  1. Most certainly your computer is infected with Virus or Malware. The symptoms are there.I strongly recommend a good Anti Virus to be installed on your PC and it should be updated before scanning and cleaning you PC.
  2. If the same situation persists uninstall the Yahoo messenger and get a Yahoo messenger of a different version from the internet. The latest being Yahoo version 11. You Yahoo messenger software on your Vista might be corrupt.
  3. You need to get a good Registry cleaning software to clean the registry which might be corrupt or may have wrong or missing entries for Yahoo messenger.
  4. If the problem still persists try repairing Vista which is final option. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in your DVD player and a splash screen will appear which will display a "Repair" option select it. If the splash screen does not appear insert the Vista DVD in the DVD player and restart your machine. Make sure you have selected your DVD drive on top priority on the computer BIOS setup. and when the message appears Press any key to boot from DVD. Press any key and the setup will start the select Repair Windows Vista option.

Yahoo mail won't stay open. It sends a msg to Microsoft then shuts down agter a few minutes.


There is an issue maybe from your antivirus software or memory issue. Try safe mode and see whether the issue persists. If safemode worked then you can turn on software one by one and see which is the cause of the issue.

This sounds like a yahoo glitch but, if you are using Outlook you may have an issue in send/receive settings. If you are not using the Yahoo online interface, if you are using a third party email program, then double check those settings making sure you have the correct access settings and password and account information. If you are using yahoo interface on line to get your email, this is most likely a yahoo issue. If you are accessing Yahoo through their chat program or a downloaded product from them try uninstalling and reinstalling it. Yahoo software is notorius for problems of this nature. The uninstall and reinstall should take care of it. There are several compatibility issue between Yahoo products and Windows, especially vista, so be aware of this problem coming back even after you fix it.

Help needed to send questions to members on Craigslist


HI,
You should be able to go and open up Yahoo and then go in and send a message from there. Yahoo is a web based email so there is no need to set up a POP or STMS. If you can get into Yahoo just type in the email address of the craigs list person and send it that way. If you go into Craigs List and highlight their email address and then go into yahoo and paste it there you should be able to send it. The windows mail is popping up because that is set as your default mail client. Just ignore it for now and if it pops up just close it. If there is any other questions don't hesitate to ask, Best wishes.

Internet exploer closes after I sign in to Yahoo on windows vista


Yes, you are infected. Go to safernetworking.org and download spybot search and destroy the current version.

Go through the thing carefully. If you need a detailed explanation on how to configure it to clean out the system, because it will need to be configured properly, then it can get out the infection.

If it can't, there is another way, but this is the easy way.

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.

To install Windows Live Mail, visit http://download.live.com/wlmail

Email set up problems


from the data you have given, me, it sounds like you are using Either Outlook, or the bundled Windows Mail service.  
What is happening, is that an email your program is trying to send, an email with "test" in the subject line, but is unable to because it cannot connect to the server. looking at the string, I see several problems. make sure your settings are configured a mentioned below: 
  • Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 995)
  • Outgoing (SMTP) Server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication)
  • Account Name/Login Name: your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com")
  • Email Address: your Yahoo! Mail address (e.g., user@yahoo.com)
If this doesn't resolve your problem, refer to this page for more information. (Note: if you do not subscribe and pay in to a "Yahoo Plus" plan, this could also pose a problem, as Yahoo does not allow you to use third-party email programs with their "free" service, as they like to restrict it to webmail only. If you want a free email service that *does* however, I strongly suggest you check out google's Gmail service [what I use])
