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.

I have used 3 times my verification code to change password. So I can not sign in my ymail account.


As you are not able to receive the verification code, it is recommended to check if the mobile number you have entered is correct. If you think it is correct, the next thing you can do is to contact your mobile carrier and see if they have blocked any message sent to you by Yahoo.

If the issue still persists, the other option you have at hand is to ask Yahoo to send you the security code on your alternate email address that you may have mentioned in your Yahoo profile. The following link can be useful:

If you are not able to receive code on your alternate email address too, you may need to answer the secret questions associated with your Yahoo account. To know how to do this, the following link can be helpful:

When I try to send e'mails it comes back saying there is suspicious activity. Started yesterday am, still not working. First time I have had a problem. Its thru Yahoo


Hi,

About your problem:

Usually YA issues this message when your e-mail account may have been hijacked and used for spamming. To find the spamming source and to make sure that it isn't you causing this, Yahoo has to temporarily shut down your mail account. During the suspension, you have access to all email in your inbox, personal folders and sent folder, and to your mail options. You will not be able to send or receive mail or save any drafts. Email sent to your account will bounce back to the sender.

Other probable causes

#1: Somebody may have tried to enter your account without being authorized, and he may have tried to do so a couple of times. After a couple of failed attempts to open your mail account, Yahoo also temporarily shuts it down for security measures. In some cases a user may not even try to get into your account, but he may want to cause trouble for you - he just knows that after a couple of seemingly unauthorized attempts to enter your account, Yahoo shuts it down for a couple of days. Often an automated program is used for this which can send more than 1000 requests a minute. The Yahoo servers detect that a human can't be behind such attempts and presto, the account is shut down.

What you can do is go to: http://login.yahoo.com/config/login . After your first try you'll probably get a failure message, but when you try again, you'll see a captcha link. Only real life people could handle this correctly, spambots can't read it. If you are lucky, you may be able to enter your account at this point.

#2: If you send large amounts of mail, even if it is for non-profit organizations, Yahoo may close your account temporarely because their program can't tell the difference between a supposed spammer and a real one.

Summary: if the login hack doesn't work, wait a little, a suspension usually lasts about 48 hrs. If you then still can't get in, go to this online help form and describe your problem:
http://help.yahoo.com/fast/help/us/mail/…
You could also send a mail to e-mail support:
mail@cc.yahoo-inc.com
or
mail-classic-errors@cc.yahoo-inc.com
or call Yahoo! Customer Service: 1-408-349-1572

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My yahoo ID can't sending mail


  1. Click Options in the upper-right corner of the page and select Mail Options.
  2. Under “Management”, click Mail Addresses.
  3. Click Add.
  4. In the box, enter an account name for your own reference (for example, Work or School) …and click Continue.
  5. There would be two boxes: In the first one, put the name you’d like others to see when they get email from this address. In the second one, type the Email address you’d like send from – from within Yahoo! Mail! (You’ll be asked to verify this other address in an email we will send to you there.) Click Continue.
  6. Do you want to be able to check email in this account from your Yahoo! account as well? (You can check your mail in clients like Outlook and Eudora, but currently you won’t be able to check mail in other webmail accounts with providers like Hotmail, Gmail or Yahoo. You can send from these other addresses from within Yahoo! Mail.)
    1. If yes, (you want to check mail in your Outlook or Eudora or similar client), skip to step 9.
    2. If no, you don't want to check mail in this account, you just want to be able to SEND from it from inside your Yahoo! account. Click Skip this Step at the bottom of the Add Account page and continue to step 7.
  7. On the page that opens, check to make sure you’ve entered the correct email address. If you need to make any changes, click Edit Address. If it looks fine, click Send Verification to generate the email we send to you to make sure this is an actual account you use.
  8. The “Verify Account” page opens. Here’s the easiest way to complete your setup and start sending mail from the new address:
    1. Leave this "Verify Account" page open.
    2. In a different browser window or application, sign into your other Mail account.
    3. Look for an email from Yahoo! Member Services, and open it.
    4. Copy the “confirmation code” in the last line of the email by either double-clicking it or clicking and dragging over it, then either clicking Copy from the Edit menu or pressing Ctrl + “c”. (Mac users press Command + “c”.)
    5. Get back on the “Verify Account” page and Paste that confirmation code in the box beside “Confirmation Code:” …You can paste by clicking Paste in the Edit menu, or by pressing Ctrl + “v”. (Mac users press Command + “v”.)
    6. At the bottom of the page, click Verify Account.
    7. A sign-in page opens with your ID already filled in. Sign in with your password.
    8. You’re done. See the new account in the list on your Mail Accounts page? Now you can easily send from it by opening a Compose page, clicking the down-arrow on the end of the “From:” box, and clicking the new account in the pull-down list of email addresses. People receiving the message will see it as being sent from that address.
  9. OK, so you also want to be able to check email in this other account from your Yahoo! Mail account? No problem. On the page you’re looking at, enter that account’s mail server name (currently, only POP mail servers are supported). It will be something like pop.goestheweasel.com. To find out what it is, either search that application’s Help pages for “POP” or “server” (or both), or contact that email provider directly.
  10. Next, type your user name for that account and the password. This is completely confidential! Nobody has access to this information, but Yahoo! Mail needs it to check the account. Note: Your user name is the text in your email address before the "@" symbol.
  11. We thought a good way to identify mail from different accounts would be to give it a different color in your Yahoo! Inbox. So that’s what this last part is about: pick an indicator color to mark messages received from this account.
  12. Click Setup Mail Server. You should now be looking at the “Verify Account” page. Go back to Step 7 to hopskotch your way through account verification. Once that’s done, you can do it all from Yahoo! Mail – check mail in that account and send mail from that account.
Note: Yahoo! Mail only retrieves messages from your external (POP) mail accounts when you request it. Do this by clicking the other account’s server name in the upper-left corner of the page under “Check Other Mail”.

I am useing Microsoft Outlook and keep getting a message when I try to send emails, Your outgoing smtp email server has reported an internal error if you contiune to receive this message contact your...


The problem is clearly indicated on the error code.

"the server responded 521 user is over the limit for messages to be sent in a single day."

Have you been sending a lot of messages using that account? From yahoo:

The limit for messages for yahoo is 100 per hour, max 500 per day.

If you believe that you are the one not doing this, you can either report this to yahoo or checked your Yahoo! account immediately. Change the security settings and most specially the passwords. It could be that your account is used as a spam bot.

No email can not be sent or compuse or reply


After deleting and recreating an account in Mail, you might not be able to send emails even if you can receive them. When you try to send a message, this alert may appear:
"Cannot send message using the server smtp.xxxxx.com"
This happens if the Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) server, used for outgoing messages, was incorrectly entered with the first account even if it was correctly entered for the replacement account.
Products Affected Mail
Resolution You should first verify that the network connection you're using is the correct one for the ISP that you want mail to communicate with.
  1. Open Mail.
  2. From the Mail menu, choose Preferences
  3. Click Accounts.
  4. On the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) pop-up menu, choose Edit Server List.
  5. Delete all entries for the SMTP server that is mentioned in the error, and click Done.
  6. Configure the current SMTP server by clicking Server Setting.

    Note: If you need to use multiple SMTP servers for multiple Mail accounts, see this document.
  7. Send a test message to your email address.

I can't send out emails sometimes.


This issue can be as a result of someone else other than you using your account, or it can be related to the emails you have sent or received recently.

According to the Yahoo! help information, when this occurs you should check to see if there is any suspicious activity on your email account. Also, change your Yahoo! email account password, just in case.

These messages will generally stay for around 48 hours, or two days. If you have received or sent many emails with attachments lately, remove some of them from your inbox or sent folder.

Also, try clearing your cache and cookies on your browser. This can be done by going to Tools -> Delete Browsing History... in Internet Explorer, or Tools -> Clear Private Data in Firefox.

Hope this is of help to you. Don't forget to rate this solution, and have a great evening!
