If I am understanding you correct, you should be able to log into your yahoo account through your browser by using the username and password you set the acount up with.

Why can't I send or forward e-mails?

A question that has many specific answers depending on your mail server. They are the ones who set the rules, and each one is a little different. I will try to walk you through the General steps, but you will need to fill in the specific information that your email provider requires.

I am attaching an image that will help you visualize along with the steps. The image starts at Step 2. Warning, some of the specifics have changed in Yosemite vs some of the older operating systems ( I am using Yosemite ) My information is obfuscated to protect myself.

A. Mail App Open
1. Click on Menu Bar: Mail: Drag down to Preferences and let go. B.1. Prefferences Dialog
2. select Accounts
3. Click on the Dropdown "Outgoing Mail Server SMTP" lis
B.2 Dropdown List
4. Select "Edit SMTP Server List..."
C. SMTP Info Pane Account info Tab
5. Select email account you are having an issue with 6. Description is optional, but helpful for most people Name it accordingly 7. Server name. Will probably be something like "" or 8. Select on the "Advanced" Tab D. SMTP Info Pane Advanced Tab
9. You need a Port Number. You can have the system Choose for you, as there are typical port numbers 25 for Non SSL and 465 for SSL are a couple of them (there are others) If your email server wants a non-typical port number uncheck the "Automatically detect..." (may be different on older OS's)
for example, my work email requires a 26, this is atypical.

10. Authentication. Many email services require it. Usually these days it is "Password" (Not shown) in this case, it is probably your email address and the account password. (but not necessarily) sometimes it is formed as instead of

Sorry for keeping this so General, however, not any other way to do it without your specific information. Which you do NOT want to offer on the open web any way, hence my information obfuscated in the attached image.

Best of Luck!

When i click onto outlook to select emails, the list of emails comes up, but when i try to select to open any of them nothing happens. Then after about 5 seconds, the whole page goes blank?

Are you talking about outlook mail online? There hasn't been a version of outlook that runs natively on the Mac for over a decade.

If it's the web version, the first thing to try is another browser. If you're using safari, try chrome or firefox.

I cannot open Safari for my hotmail Emails.

You don't provide a lot of information. You say you can't open Safari for your hotmail emails. Can you open Safari at all? If Safari is open can you go to other web sites?

If you can open Safari paste the following web address into you address line. Simply highlight the following address (press the command key and the "a" key at the same time while dragging you curser over the address; then, when the full address is highlighted press the command key and the "c" key at the same time. Move the curser to the address line, triple click on the address line and then press the command key and the "v" key at the same time to paste the copied address into the address line. Then click on the Return/Enter key once. This should take you to Hotmail. Then key in your email address and password. Good luck.

I want google back as my home page

Your homepage is the page that normally appears when you first open Safari.
  1. Open Safari if it is not already open.
  2. Choose Safari > Preferences, and then click General.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To use the page in the current Safari window or tab, click "Set to Current Page." if you're currently on
    • To use another page, type its address in the Homepage field. You can type here.
    • To use a blank page, delete the contents of the Homepage field so that the field is blank.
  4. If you also want the homepage to appear whenever you open a new Safari window, choose Homepage from the "New windows open with" pop-up menu.
Good Luck!

Gentlemen: My problem seems unsolvable. I have been approved to utilize the following email addresses, but only one is avaiable for me to find, open and respond to. #1 is my Verizon Mail address, totally...

Sounds to me like you likely are the victim of ongoing id theft via your personal computer or some other computer you have used to access each of those accounts. Stop using any computer you have been using recently and subsequently lost access to those email accounts. find some other computer, verify that computer is not compromised before using it. contact gmail concerning your lost email accounts and go through their process of verifying you are the authorized owner of those accounts. The same applies to your verizon account. They should be able to restore your account based on the billing and personal information you set up with them when you established the account, provided of course you are not the hacker... Beyond that there is nothing anyone else can do to assist you in restoring access to the lost accounts other than the service providers themselves.

When i send an email, people receive from a different email

Not so weird.
Imagine you are using Microsoft Outlook on one computer. To use Outlook to send and receive e-mail you must give it an E-mail address. Image that you and your wife use a single user account on the computer. For the computer there is only one user. Then you configure Outlook by creating an account (you must supply your e-mail address.) Someday or other your wife wants to use Outlook to receive and send E-mail. She must add a second account to Outlook.
I have no idea what you do not to read each other's email but when you want to send an E-mail Outlook has too use one of the two accounts (the outgoing mail server of one of the two addresses) to send the E-mail. Apparently your wife's account is the default one and all outgoing messages go through it. Before you press the send button, open the account list and select the one to use for sending.

On the following screen capture see the arrowhead. Open that menu. You will see all the accounts managed by Outlook listed there. One of them is marked as the default one.
You may not be using Outlook but that should not matter, Your E-mail client may behave similarly.

Hi, it seems like you are using IMAP protocol for your mail settings. The good thing about IMAP is that you can see the same emails listing for your imac, and your macbook. The bad thing about IMAP is that when you accidentaly delete emails on whatever computer, the others won't see them either.
Please check in Mail's trash folders for all your computers, and check if the mails were not simply moved to another folder

1 Answer access to email obstructed.

Sorry you are having this problem,
Sounds to me like your eMail client configuration is incorrect...
Is this a new problem where you were able to send an receive mail no problem before and now this ?
I suspect it is a new set-up.
It looks like you entered your eMail address where the software was asking for the address of the SMTP mail server...
Port 465 is for a secure SMTP Server.
Normally, the SMTP server port is 25 or 26. Have you modified your eMail settings lately ? Or maybe it works well from home but not when you are on another network....
Bigpond has implemented some security on their network, see here:
So, when you are connected to the bigpond network, you must use their SMTP server:
Otherwise, it will reject the connection.
When you are away from the bigpond network, you might have to ask your host or whoever, who provides the highspeed internet access ? and then google for their smtp server,
ex: smtp server earthlink smtp server

you will quickly and easily find this server and all you have to do is enter it temporarily into your SMTP server field in your eMail client settings making sure to set it back to bigpond once you are back home..
THis should get you back on your way again.

I cannot send new emails or bring up contact list. Can you help

Probably you have some empty files into your adress book that blocks the access. Open your adress book from the dock or applications directory (you can find it by spotlight too) and erase the empty files (no names or no email adress)
