Unfortunately, Yahoo does not have the option to only receive emails from people in your contacts or address book. The more websites you click on, the more "cookies" will be placed in your browser by ad trackers, and the more "spam" or junk mail you will receive. Try going into your internet options and disabling third party cookies, or you could open a hotmail (MSN) account where you have the option of only receiving emails from those people in your address book.

I am trying to send emails to yahoo account in Crete and I keep getting back cannot be delivered and go to postmaster,what do I need to do?

the postmaster is the server that your e-mail is delivered to to get to the recipient
if the e-mail address is not correct in every detail, that server ( postmaster ) will deny it and send back that message
the address has to be exact in case , underscore, punctuation, spacing or no spacing etc
even a comma before the address will get that response
one way is to find an e-mail from the address you are sending to , and copy/paste it in the address line or if you are using a contact me -email address copy/paste it in the receiver line
if you open up the message from the postmaster , it will explain possible reason s for non delivery

Some, but not all, of my emails are coming back as undeliverable by Postmaster@local. Everything on my computer service with ATT has been verified as being in good order. This must be your problem. What...

This may not be a problem with your email but a problem with the person you are sending. You need to provie a copy of the message the postmaster accoutn sent back. in this message there will be an error code. many times this code is one saying the message was denied by the receiving server. reason being your email domain is banned by their server for spam.

if you provide a copy of the email i could help you with this issue.

I'm trying to access an email address that does not seem to be already!!

If someone registered with it before but hasn't used it for a while, yahoo disables that account and bounces back all emails sent there.

If it's with in the past two weeks Usually your companies System admin can track the delivery of incoming and out going messages. They will not be able to say that the message was delivered to your inbox but they will be able to say if it reached yahoo's server!

Mail keeps bouncing back to me as undeliverable

The way I would get around that problem is to push the reply and respond that way, It will write to the E-mail address that just wrote to you. Try that and let me know if that works.

or you could take your mouse and high light it and copy it and then past it on to the address box to whom you are will be sending mail to.

Most times for E-mails not working is do to small problems like useing ( , ) Rather then the ( . ) They both look almost the same.
