If you can not sign in for yahoo mail you have to check if you typing with caps lock function enabled or disabled. It can make a lot of mess.
Second try to sighn in from another computer.
If you can do it check your computer for viruses
Sometimes virus can do it
Good Luck

    Try to do very last thing.

    If you havenot tryed to login from another PC try to do it

    If you will be fine, you have a problem with your own PC

    Open your internet browser, go to upper toolbar, find tools, click on it, go to internet options, go to general, click on delete cockies, then delete files (delete offline content), also you can clean history

    It will refresh you internet browser

    I did it for my internet account it works. If you think you dont need it just ignore my comment

    Good Luck

I have had a similar problem in the past, it could be your browser or it could be your system. The best thing to do is first reinstall the browser you are trying log in with, then make sure you have the latest Flash installed. If this does not correct the problem, then you may have to reinstall windows. One last thing, it may just be Yahoo mail is having problems which is not uncommon so I would wait at least a day and see.

Hope this helps.

You seem to be having other troubles. Perhaps its actually something on your computer blocking the web page. Try and DL a free trial of System Mechanic from www.iolo.com it has a 30 day free trial and can fix many things that are wrong with your computer.

    Try restarting your computer in safe mode , and then hit the web page again www.iolo.com and perhaps run a free virus scan at www.antivirus.com its sounding more like viruses and less like forgotten passwords.

    Yahoo is still having some problems at the moment. Suggested cures range from Update Adobe Flash Player and Java script to clear IE7 cache, cookies, and browsing history. Different things seem to work for different people. It's causing attachments to not show, 999 errors where it won't let you do a particular action and some people cannot send receive delete or move mail. It's not just Vista either it's happening to some of us on XP. If all else fails go back to classic mail via this link.http://us.mg1.mail.yahoo.com/dc/optout?s... click yes when asked do you want to opt out. Hope this helps.


    A lot of people currently have this problem - it has nothing to do with your computer or browser and everything to do with Yahoo.

    While they take their time fixing it, you can check your mail (albeit the very basics) with this link - http://us.m.yahoo.com/p/mail

  • tech gurus Dec 12, 2008

    try to login aNd check out in another pc .at your friends place or at a near by cybercafe.it can be any corrupt issue with your pc and any of the yahho software.

  • tech gurus Dec 12, 2008

    if u will try to open a new account.just click sign up button and fill the details asked to u on the screen and new account will get opened.
    but if the pc is having any problem it will do the same as it is doing now with this present email login.

That basically means, Yahoo is down for your area. There has been problems with Yahoo the past couple of weeks. When you do get back on their site, go to their technical support and ask what is going on. It has nothing to do with you or your network connections.

Posted on Dec 12, 2008

  • zabrina liang Dec 12, 2008

    That means you have to wait until Yahoo comes back on for you. You can't do anything right now. I've contacted their help section as to why this is happening.

    it could also be a browser problem also, to reset your browser (i assume its IE7 and you are using vista) go the control panel, click on internet options, then choose the advanced tab and click reset.
    Sometimes there are website problems in certain areas but with yahoo being .com its world based and i have no problems signing in

    you can get hold of a free webmail downloader from here:

    http://www.sharewareconnection.com/title...

    read through the free software until you find the one you want and you should be able to download your yahoo mail to your pc

    regards


  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson Dec 12, 2008

    Don't forget to enable cookies in your browser.
    Install "flash player" here:

    http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoi...

    and also install "Java" here:

    http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp

    Webmail relys on both of these add-ons being installed to they can display pages which have "scripting" on them, so does "HTLM"

    • Make sure Every 2 Weeks is selected under Prompt for Password:.

    Bought a second hand computer.cannot remove the previous owners yahoo.id on signing in.How can i make my yahoo id the default.


    Make sure that when you sign in you check the "Keep me signed in" Box located right below where you enter your password. Then go to "Account Info" and go to "Change Sign In Settings". Make sure that you have "2 weeks" selected, as this will keep you signed in for 2 weeks at a time without being automatically signed out.

    I cant sign out form my mail. becouse i mark sign in for two weeks. but i want to signout . help me aftre read mails


    The sign me in for two weeks just means that if you close the browser on the PC you are logged in with then when you revisit the site within a period of two weeks you will not need to enter your password etc. The two week login can be disabled by clicking Sign Out. The sign out heading should be near Hi, (your Yahoo! ID). You might need to do this on the computer you selected "sign me in for two weeks".

    Signing in ....sign in to yahoo mail.....i check the "sign in for 2 weeks box"...but it dosent work now.........have to sign in all the time.... whats gone wrong... ..very frustrating !!!!!!!! peter


    Even if you configured the program to keep you signed in, whenever your internet connection fails, you'll need to sign in again or every time you turn on your computer. If you keep you computer on for 2 weeks without any connection failure, then definitely, it'll work for you, but I am afraid that any internet connection will continuously keep connected without any interruption. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

    I CANT SiGN ON TO MY YAHOO


    You cant have 2 instances of yahoo open at the same time, you'll be booted off of one. Yahoo also recently changed all of their DNS servers, and there was some login issues. The official Yahoo should have already been fixed. If you are logged in on your phone, you cant also be logged in at home.

    Why do i have to sign in every day when i say keep me signed in for two weeks? mikbar1107@sbcglobal.net


    It logs you in via "cookies". If your browser is set up to delete cookies after a session is over or when browser is closed, you will not be able to use the auto sign in feature.

    IM signs me out saying I'm already signed in elsewhere.


    When you sign into Mail first, the new Yahoo mail automatically signs you into messenger. Mine did that all the time so now I sign into Yahoo Messenger first then when it tells me I have mail, I click on the envelope and it takes me to my mail account without signing me out of messenger. I hope that helps you.
