If it is using outlook, maybe,probably not if you have virus protection. If its on yahoo or somthing it is spam.

My husband and I share a yahoo email but when we send a message, only his name shows up in receiver's inbox. How can we make both our first names show up in receivers' inboxes?


You can't. The display name comes up because your email address in the recipients Contact list with only the name 'Scott Hutch'. If they change the Contact name to Gail and Scott Hutch, that is what you will see. When there is no Contact, you just see the email address.

Open email id


PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME.

1. I CANT FIND EMAILS SENT TO MY INBOX AFTER FEW MINUTES OR HOURS OF READING THEM ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT EMAILS. BUT I WILL ONLY FIND THE REPLIES I SENT ON THE SUBJECT MATTER BUT NOT THE ORIGINAL EMAIL WHICH THE PERSON SENT TO ME MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO FOLLOW UP ON ISSUES. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON NOW FOR ABOUT FIVE MONTHS AND I THOUGHT IT WILL JUST READJUST ITSELF TO THE DEFAULT SETTING. I AM UNABLE TO WORK EFFECTIVELY IN THE OFFICE AS I CANNOT REFERENCE MAILS SENT TO ME AGAIN TO KEEP A LINE OF CONVERSATION GOING. COULD IT BE THAT THERE IS A BUG / PHISHING STUFF SET ON MY ACCOUNT OR THERE IS SOMETHING I MAY HAVE ENABLED OR DISABLED UNCONSCIOUSLY THAT IS CAUSING THIS

I am new to Yahoo and I cannot seem to attach anything. It just sits there saying that it needs time. I never had this problem with Comcast. What do I need to do t resolve it?


Yahoo Mail is a Web-based email program that is provided for free by Yahoo.
Anyone can sign up for the service to send and receive emails from friends and family.
Yahoo places restrictions on the size and type of attachments that can be sent and received when using Yahoo Mail.
Any email attachment that contains a virus, is too large or doesn't meet the file type requirements may be blocked by Yahoo.
Virus Scanner

Yahoo Mail scans each attachment that arrives or departs from your inbox with Norton AntiVirus.
If the virus scanning software detects a virus within an attachment, Yahoo will warn you and attempt to clean it.
Yahoo does not promise that every virus will be detected or cleaned by the Norton AntiVirus software.
Only accept attachments from people you know and trust.
Don't attempt to open blocked attachments if it is known to harbor a virus.
Large Attachments
Attachments exceeding 25 megabytes will not attach to an email.
Multiple attachments that exceed 25 megabytes will also be blocked by Yahoo Mail.
Once your attachments reach 25 megabytes, you will no longer be able to add any additional attachments.
If you have many attachments to send that exceed 25 megabytes, send several emails to send all of the attachments.
If you are receiving attachments, let the sender know that you are unable to receive any attachments larger than 25 megabytes.
Slow Connection Speed
It may appear that Yahoo is blocking your attachments if you have a slow dial-up connection because they may never appear to load.
Yahoo isn't actually blocking the attachment, the connection is just very slow.
A 25 megabyte file could take over an hour to download with a 56K dial-up connection.
Your computer may go to sleep or the download may be even slower if you surf the Web while your files upload.
File Type
Only certain file types can be sent using Yahoo Mail.
Yahoo Mail allows you to add audio files, images, HTML files, word processing documents, spreadsheets and many other types of files as attachments.
Some documents are not supported, but you can send unsupported file types by renaming them, including them in a RAR or ZIP archive, creating a Word document with the file, sending the file through Yahoo Messenger or you can upload the file elsewhere and send a link to the file via email.

I can not open my mail inbox


Please clear the cache on your browser for an inbox that seems to load forever and does not open
If your browser is internet explorer for example you can use tools>internet options> and you will see a button to delete browsing history or clear cache. You should also clean your disk, using a free registry cleaner like ccleaner and do a virus scan to remove threats that can make your inbox.



Also make sure that you do have a password, and your email address.
If you have typed and spelled these correctly, and still cant log in.

If you don't know your password, or it does not answer to your password,
you may have to reset your password, which you will do by getting a link sent to
your alternatve email address. If you are unable to obtain a password
you may have to contact google support and establish that you are the rightful
owner of that email account before you can have access. Contacting google support
or yahoo support can be frustrating but you will get a reply in 48 hours and take it from there.
As they are a free service there is no telephonic support

If you are sure you know the password and log in email address what happens when
you try to log in? If you do successfully log in--have you checked this and are you able to open other google services such as google documents-- then its just your inbox that wont open

It can be that you got spam which had viruses or some one hijacked your email account.
These problems can be solved as long as you can show some evidence that you are the owner.
Just contact google support about it

Emails dissappeared from inbox


I had this problem before but after a few hours the emails went back. The inbox says empty but when I click the inbox there are emails.

If the emails did not come back, wait for the response of Yahoo customer service they might solve your issue, or it might be a problem on their server.

In the meantime, change your yahoo password because someone might have also found your yahoo id and password then deleted the messages.

I hope you get a response from yahoo to get your emails back.

For the past couple days I've been receiving multiple (up to 100!) copies of emails that are sent to my yahoo account. Can you help me correct this bug?


I resolved the problem myself. Apparently the mailbox was so full that it was giving an incorrect message that the new emails hadn't been received yet, so kept accepting them over and over again. So, I got to work deleting old emails that I no longer need. I emptied the trash can, too. I filed the unread emails in a folder labeled "Open These" till I can sort through them and figure out which ones to actually save. my Inbox has only a few emails in it, and I'm receiving no more multiple copies of emails! Actually, my email is working fine now.
