1) Go to your inbox

2) Just above the list of messages is the word "Inbox" in fairly large letters. Right underneath, there is a link that says "View: All Messages." Click on this link. A dropdown will appear: click "All Messages" in the dropdown.

3) Be patient - all 9,000 messages will load onto this single page. Expect this to take a while. Go enjoy a cup of coffee.

4) When all the messages have loaded, scroll to the bottom and click the link that says "check all." Then click the "Delete" button.

It might take a few minutes to delete everything - again, be patient.

How to change settings in Outlook to delete message from server after downloading


Hi, follow the steps below. Don't change any of your settings since they already work, but when you get to step 7 this is where you check whether or not you want to remove the emails from the sever.

Open Outlook 2003 then:
  1. Click Tools ' E-mail Accounts.
  2. Select Add a new e-mail account and click Next.
  3. Select POP3, then click Next.
  4. Enter the following information:
    • User Information
      • Your Name: Type your name as you'd like it to appear when you send an email message.
      • E-mail Address: Type your Yahoo! Mail Plus email address (for example, jo.bloggs@yahoo.com).
    • Server Information
      • Incoming mail server (POP3): Type pop.mail.yahoo.com
      • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Type smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    • Login Information
      • User Name: Type your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
      • Password: Type your Yahoo! password.
    • Check the Remember password checkbox if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
    • Do notcheck the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
  5. Click the More Settings button. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  6. Select the Outgoing Server tab:
    • Check the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox.
    • Make sure that Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected.
  7. Select the Advanced tab:
    • Under "Incoming server (POP3)," check the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox. The number in the "Incoming server (POP3)" field usually changes automatically from 110 to 995. If it doesn't, type 995.
    • In the Outgoing server (SMTP) field, type 465. Under it, check the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox.
    • If you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on both the Yahoo! Mail server and on your computer, check the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox.

    Note: After your messages are deleted from the server, we cannot retrieve them.
  8. Click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.

You will need to go to www.yahoo.com contact page [ look on the bottom of the opening page] and simply ask them to restore the account. Sometimes Yahoo messes up and can delete an entire account. It happens

Can I configure microsoft outlook 2007 to work with my yahoo e-mail if i'm connection through clearwire at home and I'm not on a network


Hi,

If you are not connected to the internet, you can only work offline, and for example, if you write an email it will not send until you do connect to the internet.

You can configure Outlook 2007 to work with Yahoo.

If you want to "POP" your Yahoo! Mail into your Outlook 2007 application, here's how:
  1. From the Tools menu, select "Account Settings." If you do not see "Account Settings," place your cursor over the two arrows at the bottom of the list to display more choices.
  2. On the Email tab, click New.
  3. Check the box next to the first option, "Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP" and click Next.
  4. In the Your Name box, type your name as you'd like it to appear when you send a message.
  5. In the Email Address box, enter your Yahoo! Mail address (for example, "user@yahoo.com").
  6. Check the box for "Manually configure server settings or additional server types" and click Next.
  7. Check the box next to the first option "Internet E-mail" and click Next.
  8. In the Server Information area, under "Account Type" select POP 3 from the pull-down menu.
  9. In the Incoming mail server field, enter: pop.mail.yahoo.com.sg
  10. In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) field, enter: smtp.mail.yahoo.com.sg
  11. In the Login Information area, in the User Name field, enter your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
  12. In the Password box, enter your Yahoo! Mail password.
  13. Check "Remember Password" if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail. Handy!
  14. Do not check the box labeled "Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)."
  15. Click on the More Settings button.
  16. Click on the Outgoing Server tab and check the box next to "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication."
  17. Click on the Advanced tab.
  18. Under "Incoming Server (POP3)", check the box next to "This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)". The port number in the "Incoming Server (POP3)" field should automatically change from 110 to 995. If it doesn't, make sure the port number is set to 995.
  19. Under "Outgoing Server (SMTP)", check the box next to "This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)". Enter port number "465" in the "Outgoing Server (SMTP)" field.
  20. If you'd like to keep a copy of your email messages on the Yahoo! Mail server, check the box next to "Leave a copy of messages on the server." If you want to delete your messages from the Yahoo! Mail server after viewing them in Outlook, don't check the box.
  21. Click the OK button.
  22. Click the Next button on the Email Account Wizard, then click Finished.
  23. Would you like your Yahoo! Mail inbox to be your primary inbox in Outlook 7? If so, click the Tools menu and select "Account Settings." If you don't see "Account Settings," place your cursor over the two arrows at the bottom of the list to display more choices.
  24. From the list, select the pop.yahoo account you've just added and click the Set as Default button.
  25. Click the Close button. You're done!
Troubleshooting instructions
If you followed the above configuration steps, you should be all set. However, if you cannot send or receive mail with your email client, try the following tips.
The Yahoo! Mail SMTP server requires authentication. Make sure you have enabled SMTP authentication. To turn this setting on, follow these steps:
  1. From the Tools menu, choose "Account Settings."
  2. Select the "E-mail" tab.
  3. Select your Yahoo! Mail account and click Change.
  4. Click on the "Outgoing Server" tab.
  5. Check the box next to "My Server Requires Authentication."
  6. Please make sure that "Log on using" is not checked.
  7. Click OK.
To control deletion of messages from the Yahoo! Mail server:
  1. From the Tools menu, select "Account Settings."
  2. Click on the "Email" tab.
  3. Select your Yahoo! Mail account and click Change.
  4. Click on the "Advanced" tab.
  5. Check "Leave a copy of messages on server" if you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on the Yahoo! Mail server as well as on your local computer. Please note that setting your email client to remove messages from the server will cause your messages to be deleted from the server. Once the messages are deleted, we are unable to retrieve them.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Close Microsoft Outlook and restart.
We strongly recommend that you enable SSL for both POP and SMTP, as detailed in the above instructions. This will ensure that your Yahoo! ID, password and email messages are transmitted securely between your mail client and the Yahoo! servers. However, if you choose to not use SSL for SMTP, your email client will likely default the SMTP port to 25. If your ISP blocks port 25 or if you're unable to send email, then you will need to use port 587 when sending via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. To make this change, please follow the directions below:
  1. From the "Tools" menu, select "Account Settings"
  2. Select your Yahoo! POP account and click on Change.
  3. Click on the "Advanced" tab.
  4. Click OK and Close.

You should change your password immediately. It happened to me one time, I couldn't sign on to my yahoo messenger and the software advised me to change the password.
It was resolved by changing the password.

I am not able to send or receive any mail on my yahoo account.


How do you access your Yahoo mail? Is it via the browser (www.yahoo.com) or via MS Outlook?

If you're having a problem of sending/receiving emails while using the web browser, you may want to delete old and unnecessary emails. You could have reached the storage limit of your email account.

But if your using an Outlook, you need to double-check the account settings. Make sure that you have the correct user name, password, incoming and outgoing servers, incoming and outgoing ports.

If you setup your email account using the POP protocol, you may use these server ports:

Incoming: 110 or 995
Outgoing: 25 or 2525, or 587, or 465 (SSL)

For IMAP:

Incoming: 143 or 993
Outgoing: 25 or 2525, or 587, or 465 (SSL)

If the same problem occur, you may try to delete your account and recreate it. Please bear in mind that if you deleted your account and recreated it, some emails may no longer appear or get downloaded.

Thank you and good luck!

Need a shortcut for deleting over 5000 unwanted messages


If you are in a classic view in yahoo mail, the only way is if you switch to "All New Mail".
It has a continuous mail page which allows you to delete all at once. Click on "more actions"---then, "Select All Messages" and then "Delete".
You can always switch back to Classic afterward.

*I hope this will fix your problem.
