Question about Yahoo Mail

4 Answers

The server is not responding, please try after sometime

I've received this error for the past month. The only way I can check my Yahoo mail is in the preview box on the yahoo home page. If I click on mail to open the full page, I can see that I have unread messages, I can see all my folders, but I cannot access my inbox. I received the "The server is not responding, please try after sometime" error. Has anyone (hello Yahoo - even you) found a solution to this??

    This is odd. I had tried this on my home computer and work computer - with the same result. Now when I tried on my home computer, I get www.yahoo.com with what seems a new home page and I'm able to access my mail. After deleting my browsing history and cookies on my work computer, I log onto www.yahoo.com and get the old home page, but cannot access my mailbox (I used to be able to on my work computer - nothing has changed at work that would prevent it now). Why would using the same web address produce two different Yahoo home pages?

    I'm sorry - the above "guest" post is mine - I forgot to log back in after I deleted my cookies.

    When I try to open my Yahoo mail I get this Microsoft Internet Explorer error message: "The server is not responding, please try after sometime." Deleting cookies, deleting temporary files and refreshing the page doesn't help. Signing in from the My Yahoo page doesn't help. I CAN access my mail from the public library computer but that is of no help on a daily basis. The problem seemed to coincide with a new Chat/Text message section being installed on the page by Yahoo but that could mean nothing. The error message itself is working my nerves; please try after sometime?!? What does that mean?? It's a week later - I think that's after sometime!!

    It is now August, 2009 and this problem, as well as the picture problem (pics not appearing in forwarded emails) are still not addressed by Yahoo!

    SOLUTION: Dump their ***. There are plenty of better free providers out there.

I found a solution posted on another site [answers.yahoo.com]which has saved me. It was posted by magnumgirl who said:

"Yahoo has been having problems lately since they have been upgrading and doing maintenance on their sites. In the meantime, you can use one of these links to access your mail, it's basic, no frills, but it works. http://us.m.yahoo.com/p/mail or: http://uk.m.yahoo.com/p/mail or; http://de.m.yahoo.com/p/mail"

I had the same problem. To solve it I tried switching to Yahoo's New Mail and this worked.

If you are using the classic view, as I was, try switching to new mail view.

It is not a definitive solution but you can read your messages and open your folders, etc.

When you are inside Yahoo e-mail, you can open your mailbox or another folder just clicking the mouse's right key and it opens a window with some different options. You can choose "Open" and your mailbox will be opened.

You can do the same in each mail message to look its content at.

I want to change mail classic old view


Yahoo! has recently made over its email client, Yahoo! Mail. The old standard Yahoo! Mail Classic look has been replaced with New Yahoo! Mail, which offers most of the same features but looks different and is organized differently. Yahoo! Mail users who don't like New Yahoo! Mail, or who simply like Yahoo! Mail Classic better, can switch back to the classic view easily.
Step 1. Log in to your Yahoo! Mail account
In your web browser, go to the Yahoo! Mail home page (http://mail.yahoo.com). Sign in to your account using your Yahoo! ID and password, then click the yellow Sign In button. Once you've successfully logged in, you'll see your email folders on the left and the What's New and Inbox tabs in the middle.
Step 2. Choose the Mail Classic option
On the upper right side of the page, there are three links -- Mobile, Options, and Help. Click Options, and when the drop down menu appears, choose "Mail Classic..."
Step 3.Confirm that you want to switch back
A dialog box will pop up with two choices -- Switch to Yahoo! Mail Classic and Cancel. If you're sure you want to switch, click the first option; otherwise, choose Cancel to keep the New Yahoo! Mail. (If you wish to provide feedback about Yahoo! Mail, you can click the feedback link in the dialog box, which will open up a new window.)
Depending on your computer's speed and your Internet connection, the switch may take several seconds. When it's completed, you'll be looking at the old familiar Yahoo! Mail Classic interface.

I hope you're satisfy with my answer.

Have a good day! : )

I have lost yahoo as my home page,and cannot get to my email


There is no relation between Yahoo as home page and accessing yahoo mail.

You can always open an internet browser and type the url www.yahoo.com. On the webpage you can click on "Mail" at the top of the left column. This will take you to the Yahoo Mail site. There you can type your user name and password and login.

Anyway, if you want to set Yahoo as home page you can open your internet browser and click tool->Internet Options. This will open a dialog box. Under the "general" tab there will be a text box under "Home Page". Type www.yahoo.com in the box. Click OK.

Close the browser. When you open the browser again yahoo home page will come.

My preview plane in my Yahoo mail disappeared and i can't get it back


I assume you're using the new version of Yahoo! Mail.

The preview pane (a/k/a "reading pane") can be turned on or off, using the control in the mail settings. On the Yahoo Mail web page, go to "Options" (near upper right corner), click on the small arrow to pull down the menu, then select Show > Reading pane

My yahoo ID can't sending mail


  1. Click Options in the upper-right corner of the page and select Mail Options.
  2. Under “Management”, click Mail Addresses.
  3. Click Add.
  4. In the box, enter an account name for your own reference (for example, Work or School) …and click Continue.
  5. There would be two boxes: In the first one, put the name you’d like others to see when they get email from this address. In the second one, type the Email address you’d like send from – from within Yahoo! Mail! (You’ll be asked to verify this other address in an email we will send to you there.) Click Continue.
  6. Do you want to be able to check email in this account from your Yahoo! account as well? (You can check your mail in clients like Outlook and Eudora, but currently you won’t be able to check mail in other webmail accounts with providers like Hotmail, Gmail or Yahoo. You can send from these other addresses from within Yahoo! Mail.)
    1. If yes, (you want to check mail in your Outlook or Eudora or similar client), skip to step 9.
    2. If no, you don't want to check mail in this account, you just want to be able to SEND from it from inside your Yahoo! account. Click Skip this Step at the bottom of the Add Account page and continue to step 7.
  7. On the page that opens, check to make sure you’ve entered the correct email address. If you need to make any changes, click Edit Address. If it looks fine, click Send Verification to generate the email we send to you to make sure this is an actual account you use.
  8. The “Verify Account” page opens. Here’s the easiest way to complete your setup and start sending mail from the new address:
    1. Leave this "Verify Account" page open.
    2. In a different browser window or application, sign into your other Mail account.
    3. Look for an email from Yahoo! Member Services, and open it.
    4. Copy the “confirmation code” in the last line of the email by either double-clicking it or clicking and dragging over it, then either clicking Copy from the Edit menu or pressing Ctrl + “c”. (Mac users press Command + “c”.)
    5. Get back on the “Verify Account” page and Paste that confirmation code in the box beside “Confirmation Code:” …You can paste by clicking Paste in the Edit menu, or by pressing Ctrl + “v”. (Mac users press Command + “v”.)
    6. At the bottom of the page, click Verify Account.
    7. A sign-in page opens with your ID already filled in. Sign in with your password.
    8. You’re done. See the new account in the list on your Mail Accounts page? Now you can easily send from it by opening a Compose page, clicking the down-arrow on the end of the “From:” box, and clicking the new account in the pull-down list of email addresses. People receiving the message will see it as being sent from that address.
  9. OK, so you also want to be able to check email in this other account from your Yahoo! Mail account? No problem. On the page you’re looking at, enter that account’s mail server name (currently, only POP mail servers are supported). It will be something like pop.goestheweasel.com. To find out what it is, either search that application’s Help pages for “POP” or “server” (or both), or contact that email provider directly.
  10. Next, type your user name for that account and the password. This is completely confidential! Nobody has access to this information, but Yahoo! Mail needs it to check the account. Note: Your user name is the text in your email address before the "@" symbol.
  11. We thought a good way to identify mail from different accounts would be to give it a different color in your Yahoo! Inbox. So that’s what this last part is about: pick an indicator color to mark messages received from this account.
  12. Click Setup Mail Server. You should now be looking at the “Verify Account” page. Go back to Step 7 to hopskotch your way through account verification. Once that’s done, you can do it all from Yahoo! Mail – check mail in that account and send mail from that account.
Note: Yahoo! Mail only retrieves messages from your external (POP) mail accounts when you request it. Do this by clicking the other account’s server name in the upper-left corner of the page under “Check Other Mail”.
