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 been sending e mails thru my yahoo account, it reflects in the sent items folder but was never received


If the email address was correct then this is probably just one of the glitches with yahoo this past week. There have been several strange errors other than this. Usually this happens when Yahoo is doing major upgrades about once a year or so. My emails showed up a few days later so I would assume they were upgrading the email server or part of that system. I'd wait a few days and see if they show up on their own. If this follows the usual pattern they will in a few days at most. I'd give it a week at most but after that you should contact yahoo support from the web page and see what they say.

Change my old email adress; youme2b@yahoo.com.au..... not longer used to you4hs@yahoo.com...... cant change it because no convermation recieved at new address


Hello,

Confirmation emails can take anywhere from 1 minute to a couple of days to be received in your email. A couple of days is rare, but it can happen. I would recommend that if after a day or two you don't receive the email to contact PayPal support so they can help you with the email change on your account.

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!!

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!
