I need to confirm my email but i do not have a yahoo accounti need to confirm my email but i dont have a yahoo account


Yahoo offers free email accounts with add-ons such as a calendar, notepad and an automatic organizer.

Your Yahoo account is Web-based, so you can access your messages anywhere you have an Internet connection.

Once you complete the simple one-page registration form, you will also have access to all of Yahoo's features.

You can use your new email address to sign into Flickr, Yahoo Answers, Messenger and a variety of games and fantasy sports leagues.

Click the "Sign Up" link that appears below the "Sign In" option on the Yahoo homepage to create a new account.

Enter your name, gender, address and birth date on the appropriate lines.
Choose your Yahoo username.

Your username will also be your email address. Make sure "Yahoo.com" is selected from the drop-down list next to the email address.

Click the "Check" button to see if your desired email address is available.
Enter your desired password on both of the required lines.

The password must be typed exactly the same on both lines.
You will see a "Password Strength" bar indicating how difficult your password will be for a hacker to guess.

Select a "secret question" from the drop-down menu.
Yahoo will use this question to verify your identity if you lose your password.

Enter the answer to the question you chose from the menu.
Repeat this process to choose your second "secret question" and answer.

There is also an optional line where you can enter an alternate email address for Yahoo to send you password resetting instructions.

Enter the letters and numbers displayed in the image on the screen into the "image verification" line.

This proves that you are a human and not an automated script designed to open new Yahoo accounts.

Click the "Create My Account" button when you are finished completing all of the input boxes. You will then see your account details displayed on the screen.

You can print this page for your records, if needed.
Click "Continue" to proceed to your new email account.

Phishing "Protect urself" Know What Hackers Do !This is a featured page



Phishing continues to be one of the most significant security threats facing Internet users. During 2007, scammers distributed millions of phishing scam emails that targeted many different entities. Phishing attacks are sure to continue in 2008 and scammers will use such attacks to steal money and identities from many new victims around the world. Armed with a little knowledge about how phishing scams work, however, you can ensure that you do not become one of these victims. phishing-scammer.jpg
Phishing scammers continue to find new victims all around the world

A phishing scam is one in which victims are tricked into providing personal information such as account numbers, passwords and credit card details to what they believe to be a legitimate company or organization. In order to carry out this trick, the scammers often create a "look-a-like" webpage that is designed to resemble the target company's official website. Typically, emails are used as "bait" in order to get the potential victim to visit the bogus website. The emails use various devious ruses to trick readers into clicking on the included links, thereby opening the bogus website. Information submitted on these bogus websites is harvested by the scammers and may then be used to steal funds from the user's accounts and/or steal the victim's identity.

Phishing scam emails are created to give the illusion that they have been sent by a legitimate institution. Emails may arrive in HTML format and include logos, styling, contact and copyright information virtually identical to those used by the targeted institution. To further create the illusion of legitimacy, some of the secondary links in these bogus emails may lead to the institution's genuine website. However, one or more of the hyperlinks featured in the body of the email will point to the fraudulent website.

Links in phishing scam messages are often disguised to make it appear that they lead to the genuine institution site. The sender address of the email may also be disguised in such a way that it appears to have originated from the targeted company. Because they are sent in bulk to many recipients, scam emails use generic greetings such as "Dear account holder" or "Dear [targeted institution] customer". If an institution needed to contact a customer about some aspect of his or her account, the contact email would address the customer by name.

Email Do's and Don'ts Outlook Express VS Webmail


If you are like most people, you use your Internet Provider's email client.
Most of these are based on the pop3 system.

While it is handy and convenient to have this locally based Email client on your PC, it also introduces a dangerous new element to your personal safety.

By default, your Outlook Express client is set up to automatically view every mail in a preview pane. This feature used to be handy years ago when we didn't have to worry so much about spam and malware. Unfortunately, in the post y2k era Email has become a leading cause of virus proliferation and infection.

Many spam or malware emails can not only infect your PC, but also hijack your contacts list and email itself to all of your friends. Some of these fraudulent email attachments can even hijack your browser, forcing it to make your homepage anything they choose.

If you choose to continue using this windows based email client, you should make a few changes to prevent an email from loading without your permission. The easiest and most advisable fix is this.

Click the toolbar item named (View) then click layout and un-check (Show Preview Pane). Now when you just happen to have an email highlighted it will not show the contents of that particular email in a preview pane. This protects your privacy, should someone happen to be looking over your shoulder, and also prevents you from accidentally loading an email you hadn't intended to read. Spam artists and malware creators depend heavily on the preview pane to spread their poison because when the email loads it can also open html code, flash script, css code as well as some java applets. Gone are the days when you only had to worry about opening attachments to get infected, and NO you should never click on any attachment sent to you by a stranger. Never accept attachments from strangers.

The Block Feature

When you get an email from someone you don't know, or if you continue to receive unwanted or spam email from someone, you can simply choose to block them. You can do this by clicking once on the email you don't want to see again and click on the (message) button on your toolbar, then click block. This simple trick will not only prevent a repeat of that same email, but will effectively block any future emails from that particular sender permanently.

Filtering

With outlook express you can filter your email so that any email from a certain party can be redirected to a different folder of your choosing.
After all, we dont want letters from our loved ones being immediately accessible with a single click. We do this with a handy tool called (Message Rules). First, you will need to create a folder with a name that fits the particular person or type of email you want to filter.

We do this by right clicking the (Local Folders) tab, then click (New Folder), name it and you are done. Then click an email like the one you want to have sent to this new folder then click (Message) on your toolbar and choose (Create Rule From Message). In the dialog box that opens you will see a vast amount of options detailing what you can do with this particular email, but for simplicities sake, we will simply choose, in Box 1.(Where The From Line Contains People), then click in Box 2.(Move It To The Specified Folder), In Box 3. click the highlighted blue text saying (Specified) choose the new folder as the one to send this and all other Emails sent by this person to and click ok on both boxes.

Now lets test this NEW message rule.
On the Toolbar, click Tools then click message rules, then choose mail.
When the new window opens, choose, the mail rules tab, then click (Apply Now). when the New window opens always choose (Select All) just in case you miss any new emails, and click apply now.

If all went well, you will see the emails from the sender you selected disappear from your inbox window then reappear in the folder of your choice. Sometimes a sender will use several addresses from the same domain, so you will need to repeat these steps to include them in your message rule.

You may have noticed when reading your message rules Box 1 a list of options for what type of identifiers to use when filtering emails, as well as the other options for how to deal with certain types of emails in Box 2.
These 2 boxes open a whole realm of possibilities for you to not only filter spam, but to also delete junk email automatically. Use this feature cautiously since some preferred emails use key words that can fall in your criteria of delete, move etc.

Saving Email Locally or on the Server.

Many of you have been faced with the dreaded prospect of sending your PC to a shop for repair or Virus removal only to learn after the fact that everything on your computer was completely wiped out.
What this means to you is that, not only have all of your songs, favorites and preferences been deleted, but your Outlook Express Emails have also been deleted. This need never happen if you follow these simple steps.

1.Click the word, Tools on your Toolbar then click Accounts.
2.Click your account name then click Properties
3.In the properties window, click Advanced.
4.Now click the box named (Leave A Copy Of Messages on Server)

The other options listed are a matter of your personal choice, so read them carefully.

What this does for you is prevent you from losing your emails due to a hard drive crash etc.

Now for Method 2

If you already have emails saved in Outlook Express, and you wish to save them on a more permanent basis, you can simply copy them all to a new folder of your choosing, and this can even include a flash drive or external hard drive backup.

First create a folder of your choosing in whatever place you wish to store these messages and name it whatever you want.
Now go to Outlook Express and click any email in the folder your chosen emails happen to be in. Now go to the toolbar and click edit, then click select all. Now drag and drop the entire highlighted blue emails to your new folder and all of the emails you selected will be saved there.

To restore these emails back to your Outlook Express client, just open the inbox, then open your new folder and select all the emails as before, drag and drop them to your inbox and they will appear exactly as they did originally.

My Method

I chose, long ago to stop using my local POP3 email simply because these problems listed above occur quite frequently. I chose instead to use Juno, Netzero and several other Webmail based accounts and I will list my reasons below.

1.I have a New Internet provider which means I have to send a notification to all my friends about the fact that my old email address is no longer valid.
2.Somebody put my email address in their address book and now I am getting chain letters and spam, and now I have to filter everything on a daily basis.
3.My outlook express client has crashed and I can no longer read my emails
4.Microsoft Messenger now loads every time I start windows, and I don't use it, but have trouble making it go away for good.
5.I have to set my email up all over again when I get a new PC

These few listed reasons can give you a little insight into what you can expect from Outlook Express as well as many other Microsoft programs which load memory stealing applications you may never use.

My solution, as noted above is to always use Webmail instead. The benefits are much better as well and I will list them here.

1.Automatic Spam Filtering is included with almost every Webmail client.
In my opinion Juno and Netzero are the best at this.

2.You never lose your Email address, unless for some reason you don't use your email for more than 6 months. With a local provider, you fail to pay for a month and you lose all of that anyway.

3.You can check your email anytime, anywhere, on any internet connection.

4.Most Webmail providers allow you to ADD your local ISP's POP3 email to your webmail which means you can not only check all of your emails, but you have them permanently stored in a safe, secure place.

5.You can forward anything in your Outlook Express inbox to your webmail address to make a permanent copy of emails you don't want to lose.

6.You may have as many Email Addresses as you want, unlike your local provider who will only allow a maximum of 1 to 3 accounts for free.

7.I never have to set up my email again, simply because I got a new PC

With this information, hopefully you will have enough information to safeguard your account, as well as see some choices you may not have known existed.

Happy Hunting!

Loseing emails without deleting them my main pc keeps them till i use my lap top then they all go


Sounds like you need to check your e mail preferences on the laptop, from what you are describing it looks like the laptop checks your e mail, sees that the messages have been downloaded or downloads the messages to the hard drive then tells the server to delete the messages. When you log back in on the desktop the desktop checks for new messages, see that certain messages have been deleted from the server then syncs the email to the server, which wipes out all the messages on the desktop. Hope this helps

I dont know the way how to email to thai kises


I assume that you are using Yahoo Mail. On your internet explorer address bar type www.yahoo.com when the site open choose yahoo mail from the list of links on the left. The mail login page open, enter your yahoo ID and password. Your mail should open at this point, choose inbox to see the mails you have. To send a new mail, from your inbox choose new, enter the address of the person you want to send the mail to and then the subject. Type your message and click the send to send the mail.

To reply a mail sent to you, open the mail, click on reply or just press "r" type your message and the click send.
