CAN NOT ACCES MY YAHOO MESAGES.


If you are unable to sign in to Yahoo! Web Messenger, you may see an error message such as "Website Blocked" or a notification explaining that your login credentials are incorrect.

If your computer does not meet the minimum system requirements, the browser may not be able to display the page at all.

Confirm that your computer meets the system requirements and that the Yahoo! Web Messenger website is not blocked on your network, and confirm that your password is correct to sign in and begin chatting online. No Account
To log in to Yahoo! Web Messenger, you must have a Yahoo! account.
This enables your friends to add you to their contact lists and chat with you.

It also gives you access to other services such as Yahoo! Mail.
To create an account from the Yahoo! Web Messenger page, click the "Get Started" button, and then click "Sign Up" on the following page.

Provide the requested basic information, including your name and birth date, and select your desired username and password.

Incorrect Password
When signing in to Yahoo! Web Messenger, you must provide the password that you selected when creating your Yahoo! account.

If you provide an incorrect password when signing in, Yahoo! Web Messenger displays the error message "Invalid ID or Password."
Click the "I can't access my account" link at the bottom of the sign-in screen.

On the following screen, click "I forgot my password" and then click "Next."
Follow the prompts to verify your identity and reset your Yahoo! password.

System Requirements
You may see errors if you attempt to use Yahoo! Web Messenger on a computer running an older operating system such as Windows 2000 or Millennium Edition, as Web Messenger requires Internet Explorer 6 or newer. Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Safari are also officially supported.

If you have confirmed that you are running a supported browser, navigate to the Adobe Flash Player page at adobe.com/software/flash/about.

The screen should display the message "Adobe Flash Player Successfully Installed."
Download and install Adobe Flash if you do not see this message.

Website Blocked
If you receive an error message such as "This page has been blocked" when you attempt to access the Yahoo! Web Messenger page, your network administrator has elected to block the website in the network's firewall.

Parents can also use home routers to block websites.
Ask your parents or network administrator to remove the block so you can use Yahoo! Web Messenger.

In yahoo mail inbox page screen reader problem is appearing


Auto-save to Draft Yahoo! Mail Classic now saves the message you're working on (in Drafts) so you don't lose it in the event of a power outage, connection interruption or computer problem. And as always, you can save the most recent version by clicking Save Draft. Once you click Send to send the message, the draft is deleted from Drafts. To review it after that, just look in Sent! Downloading In most cases, downloading now requires only one click-on the attachment name in the message header. Stationery! Now you can choose the perfect background for any message. Click the far-right button on the Rich Text toolbar to view all your colorful stationery options. Message Header We made the From, To and Date information at the top of each email easier to read-and added the option to flag the message in the upper-left corner (click the flag). To view a message's full header, just click Full Header in the lower-right corner. One-click "Flag this message" Organize your most important messages! Just click the dot in the new Flag column-it's one over from the check-box column. If you're in the middle of reading a message you'd like to flag, click the gray flag in the upper-left corner of the window. Finally, if you want to see all your flagged messages grouped at the top of your Inbox (or any other folder), just click the flag at the top of the column. Bingo! Inline Signature If you've created a signature in More Options, you will now see it each time you open the Compose window to write a message. If you don't want to include it, just delete the signature text as you would any other text in your email. Or, if you'd rather not include a signature in any of your emails, click Options, select More Options, and under "Management", click Signature. Delete the text in the window to delete your signature, then click Save. Forward as Attachment You can still forward a message as an attachment by holding down the Ctrl button on the keyboard and clicking Forward. Mark as Unread When you're viewing a message, you'll now find Mark as Unread in the upper-right corner of the window. We did this to reduce clutter in the top middle area. Bulk Folder = Spam Folder We updated Bulk to Spam. Because, well, that's what it is! It functions just the same as before. Address Book = Contacts "Address Book" is "Contacts" in the new Yahoo! Mail Classic. Message Encoding You don't need to change message encoding through your browser anymore. Instead, just use the encoding pull-down menu in the lower-right corner of the page while you're viewing the message. In addition, you don't need to change the browser's encoding when you compose emails. Just type away! Rich-text/Plain-text link On the Compose page above the message window, you can click either Rich Text or Plain Text to select the format you prefer. Cc: on the Compose Page You don't have to click a link to open the Cc: line anymore. Now, it's always there--just waiting for whoever else you want to send your message to. :o) Folder Renaming and Deleting Rename and delete your personal folders more easily by clicking the folder on the left, then clicking either Rename or Delete next to the folder name at the top of the page. Flagged message and Attachment sorting Just click the column headings to group messages by what's flagged or has attachments. News Module Now you'll see the same News Module that currently appears in the all-new Yahoo! Mail. Mark as Spam Marking a message as Spam now moves messages to the Spam folder instead of Trash. Screen Reader Accessibility Yahoo! Mail Classic offers enhanced accessibility to screen readers.
And...

Features We Removed Details Today's tip Today's tip was on the Welcome page. Send an e-card The link on the Compose page is gone, but you can still send e-cards by visiting http://www.yahoo.americangreetings.com/ Avatar display You won't see your Avatar on the welcome page anymore when you log in. Instalist We've taken out the option to create a mailing list for recipients, which was on the "Message Sent" page. Here's how to create a category if you want to send to a group. Online Presence Indicator We removed the icon showing whether your contacts are online or offline with Yahoo! Messenger. Quickbuilder Was a way to scan your mailbox for people you hadn't added to your Contacts yet. It's gone, but anytime you send email to a new contact, you have the option to Add to Contacts on the "Message Sent" page. Add Mobile Alert If you want to get an alert on your Mobile Device when mail from a specific sender arrives, make sure your device is registered. And now, instead of clicking Add Mobile Alert (which used to appear in the From/To info area above an email), go to the Filters section of More Options to set this up. "Add to My" button We removed the icon at the bottom of the Inbox that enabled you to add an Inbox preview to your My Yahoo! page. Keyboard Shortcuts We removed Check Mail, Compose, and other keyboard shortcuts. (e.g. Control + Shift + P for Compose.) Save Message Text Gone: the link in message view that saves the text of an email. Attachment Preview This feature gave you the chance to view both Microsoft Word and Excel files as HTML pages. Now, it's gone-but many browsers give you the option to view (Open) an attachment without downloading it. To start, just click the attachment's name in the message header.

Hi Jenbug2274,
you can load your contacts while sending a mail by just clicking on the address book tab and then choosing the addresses you want to send to, and then clicking done. Now all those addresses will appear on the "to" address bar.

Thanks.
