Yahoo is still having some problems at the moment. Suggested cures range from Update Adobe Flash Player and Java script to clear IE7 cache, cookies, and browsing history. Different things seem to work for different people. It's causing attachments to not show, 999 errors where it won't let you do a particular action and some people cannot send receive delete or move mail. It's not just a particular application either it's happening to some of us on XP or vista. If all else fails go back to classic mail via this link. http://us.mg1.mail.yahoo.com/dc/optout?s... click yes when asked do you want to opt out. Hope this helps.

    Yahoo is struggling. Mail and Messenger are balky or non-working. Many people can not get into their mail. THe ones who can get in are not able to send emails. You can try help.yahoo.com but they already know. They will fix it.

Hacked means someone figured out how to log into your account and changed your password and security question. This is evidenced by the fact the security questions are not the same ones that you set up.

Have you tried to open your email from another computer? Sometimes another computer will give you the understanding if it's yahoo! or software issue. make sure on your PC, is restarted and refreshed and try again. Clear the cashe and browsing history on your internet browser. A lot of times if there's a lot running the back round, it can be difficult to open anything new. I know that yahoo does say "Unlimited space". I would recommend to save important documents on a SCAN disk. Just for safe keeping. You never know what can happen.

If you can connect from time to time, then the email is not hacked, and it is also unlikely that Yahoo mail is malfunctioning.

Whe you get this kind of problem it is usually because you need to update Internet Explorer or use a different browser.

Do Internet Explorer update or use Mozilla Firefox (that is similar to Explorer) instead of Internet Explorer.

Download and reinstall internet Explorer from website below:


Internet Explorer: Get It Now

Or use mozilla instead of internet explorer:

Mozilla | Firefox web browser & Thunderbird email client

Once I had same problem with my Yahoo Mail access, I went in tools of internet explorer 7, pressed delete button of Browsing History and problem was resolved. It was problem of 'cookies files' in browser.
Try it mate.

For security your account is blocked . This happens because somebody tried to make a large amount of attempts to guess your password and enter your account. Many times, it's not actually someone trying to access the account, they just know that by sending a huge amount of requests, they can cause the user problems by having their account closed.
Fix:
First, visit http://login.yahoo.com/config/login Don't Worry! The first attempt will fail, say incorrect password or something. It's the second attempt that matters. What you will see this time, is that you have a word verification. This is a secure system by which only humans could be making the request, bots cannot see the text, they see encrypted numbers.
For some, this is it, the account will log in again! For others, it's not so. You have to wait up to 48hrs for the account to come back.

Go to the Password Helper site for Yahoo and correct the issue. If you think that someone else has gained access to your account, choose the I think my account may have been compromised section, otherwise choose the appropriate selection and follow the directions. Most of these sections will reset your password. Please be aware that your Yahoo id isn't the same as your e-maill address. Given your post your Yahoo Id is hkadirire

Good Luck

What is the problem you have been experiencing? I forgot my password. My password doesn't work. I forgot my username. I think my account may have been compromised.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

May I offer a different approach? Pls try:

  • Windows key + R;
  • type "cmd" less the quotes,
  • click on the "OK" button;
  • type "ipconfig /flushdns" again less the quotes, Enter;
  • try opening mail.yahoo.com.
If a 'no go', post back whether you are using XP or Vista.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I'm sorry but if you do not log into your email over months yahoo automatically deactivates and removes the account. When you do log in it will either say that the user name does not exist or it will recreate the account for you but all your emails and other items will not be there anymore. I'm sorry but if you have not logged into it since 2003 all your files are gone as well as your account and you will have to make a new account.

Your documents have not been deleted,Your account is still active,You only need to go to the log-in page and click the reset password link,You will receive an email from Yahoo,it will be sent to the alternative email address that you provided Yahoo with when you set up the account,Once the email has been received,just follow the instructions to reset password.Also,Yahoo may be experiencing server issues,Try going to Yahoo.com and signing in from the home page.

Have you tried contacting Yahoo to determine what is happening? Maybe they can see that your mail was moved and can return it to you.

Posted on Feb 04, 2009

  • Peter Steiert
    Peter Steiert Feb 04, 2009

    Since your password wasn't changed I wouldn't consider that someone cracked in to your account. Again, try contacting Yahoo to see if perhaps they tripped over a wire and your mail was moved. They should be able to find that missing mail and tie it back to your account.


  • Peter Steiert
    Peter Steiert Feb 04, 2009

    Once again, have you attempted contacting Yahoo to determine why your mail was moved?

    If they find the problem they will most definitely restore your mail without any problems.

Hi you have most likely forgotten the password, have you already tried the forgot password function on yahoo?

Posted on Feb 04, 2009

  • Ekse Feb 04, 2009


    Yahoo account inactivity


    Do you close accounts due to inactivity?





    Yes!. Accounts are deactivated and removed after four months of no use.



    When an account is deactivated, you won't be able to access it,
    regardless of whether or not email has been received in the account
    during that time.



    And sorry, but we can't retrieve any of the information that was formerly stored in it.



    Note: With Mail Plus, your account will never go dormant due to inactivity.


  • Ekse Feb 04, 2009

    You used the email address last time 5 years ago? it has been closed down, can you clarify?
