Question about Yahoo Mail

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?

    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 my newest yahoo mail to yahoo classic mail


Try changing to a lower screen resolution size first. For some people, this works and forces Yahoo to ask you if you want to revert back to Mail Classic. This fix does not work for everyone though, but do try it.

If this doesn't work, go to the help pages and contact Yahoo through there. I've previously sent people instructions on how to contact Yahoo to restore Mail Classic, but I've found out recently that Yahoo is extremely slow in responding through that avenue, sometimes they don't even respond.

Yahoo requires written authorization to restore your Mail Classic, so when you do contact them, you need to tell them that you do want it restored.

They also want feedback, they want to know why you're wanting to change back so they can better improve the new version.

The new version is full of bugs, I've responded to hundreds of people wanting to change back.

Good luck.

there could be a bunch of reasons why the message was not received.

- the email server that received the message has not yet forwarded the email to the recipient.
- if the there is an error in sending email from your email to email server of the recipient you should be able to receive a confirmation that there was an error.
- the recipient might not properly configure the their email client
- you've sent the email to a different address
- your email server has not yet forwarded the email to the email server of the recipient

There was an outage for a lot of users at the time. Depending on what is causing the outage, you can sometimes try using Classic email.

Cannot connect to subscriber in China


Typically this error indicates that you are trying to send your Adhost email through Adhost’s mail server when you have not authenticated your email account to send mail. Our mail server authenticates you through your pop account. So when you check your email, our mail server authenticates your pop user and password, captures that IP that you are checking your email from, and adds that IP to our relay list. This list is flushed every 70 minutes. This means, if you try to send email after the relay list has been flushed and before you’ve attempted to check your email, you will receive this error.


How to fix the problem:

Fix #1 - reauthenticate on our server.

Remove any email from your Outbox. If you need to keep the message, you can move it to your 'Drafts' folder.
Click "Send/Receive". This will reauthenticate you.
Try resending the email.
Fix #2 - configure your email client to check for email before sending.

In Outlook, go to "Tools" and select "Email Accounts". Make sure "View or change existing e-mail accounts" is checked. Click Next.
Select your account from the list and click "Change".
Select "More Settings".
Select "Outgoing Server".
Check "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication".
Select "Log on to incoming mail server before sending mail".
Click "OK", then "Next", then "Finish".

This will fix your problem

The problem is clearly indicated on the error code.

"the server responded 521 user is over the limit for messages to be sent in a single day."

Have you been sending a lot of messages using that account? From yahoo:

The limit for messages for yahoo is 100 per hour, max 500 per day.

If you believe that you are the one not doing this, you can either report this to yahoo or checked your Yahoo! account immediately. Change the security settings and most specially the passwords. It could be that your account is used as a spam bot.

Getting error message 999 when trying to go to my mail


The most common reason for receiving Yahoo Error 999 is due to some sort of bandwidth limiting system that Yahoo has put in place on their servers. Once you have exceeded your allotted bandwidth for a specific period of time Yahoo gives you this Error 999 message and doesn't allow you to access the service. People have primarily reported receiving this error when they try to access Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Groups, but other Yahoo services may also be affected.
