Question about Yahoo Mail

1 Answer

Compose, drafts, both missing text area and text

When I click on the "compose" button in yahoo email I get the compose page but without the text area, so there is no where to write any text. Also same type of problem when I go to finish my drafts, there is no text area and my text seems to be missing (hoping it can be found.) Also when clicking on a flagged in my inbox the whole page refreshes with the newly placed flag,...it never used to have to refresh the whole page in order to flag or clear-flag an email.

help?

Unable to compose, reply, or forward in Yahoo Mail for the last 2-3 days


The inability to send, reply, or forward emails could be from a program that was installed on your computer that is now preventing the Yahoo! Mail Rich Text toolbar from launching properly. Try switching from "Rich Text" compose mode to "Plain Text" as a work around:
  1. Sign in to your Yahoo! Mail account.
  2. Click the New button to start a new email.
  3. To the far right of the "Subject" line click the "Plain Text link.
  4. Compose and send your email.
To make "Plain Text" your default when replying or forwarding, do this:
  1. Sign in to your Yahoo! Mail account.
  2. Click "Options," then select "More Options" from the pull down arrow in the upper right corner of your Mail page.
  3. Select "General" from the list of options on the left side of the page.
  4. Check the box next to; When replying & forwarding Mark original message with > (plain text only).
  5. Click the "Save Changes" button in the upper left corner.

Think i have deleted yahoo mail cookie as cant open my mail how can i fix this?


Hello there!

For those who can't get in at all try this as it seems to be working for a few.
http://myyahoo.com
Login on My Yahoo! page
Select the link at top right to go to Yahoo!'s Home Page.
Mouse over the Mail Icon under where it says (Hi, your Yahoo! id).
You should get a drop down menu with your latest emails displayed.
Select an email and click it. You then get to a new page about Shortcuts, but just select the button for Mail and it should take you to your Mail page.
It wasn't getting redirected to the shortcuts page on some servers and not going to the mail page.
This is also working for some:
Click the "Options" link in the upper right of your Mail page.
On the Options page, in the "Management" column, click on "General Preferences".
Find the "Composing E-mails" section, "Mode:", and choose "Compose messages as plain text".
Scroll to the bottom and click the "Save" button.
Now try it. Can you Compose, Reply to a message or Forward?
This is working for some also:
Make sure your screen resolution is 1024 by 768 pixels. Right click on your desktop, click Properties, click the "Settings" tab, left click and hold on the screen resolution bar and drag it all the way to the right, click Apply and click OK

Please make sure that you are using the updated Internet Explorer.

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.
