    I have had the same problem over the last 4 days anyone know how to fix this

  • yealc Mar 08, 2009

    I can't access any yahoo sites including my own that is hosted on Yahoo. It has been over 12 hours now.

  • yvonne_253 Mar 17, 2009

    I seem to have access to my Inbox folder and be able to open an e-mail while this new chat function is loading. Unfortuanetly after it is loaded, even when I choose offline, I can't even open my Inbox folder (nor an e-mail).



    The message displayed is that the server is not responding.



    I've never had this issue before the chat function was introduced. Is there any way I can get this function off my profile?

    I have the same problem I can access Yahoo and can see my email in the preview pane but cannot open my email.  It's been 3 days now.

  • lkjh825 Mar 22, 2009

    I am having the same problem still as of 3/21/09 and it started with the arrival of the messenger option. a quick fix if you can get to the inbox is to hold the control key while you click on an email to open it in another window. this seems to work ok until a permanent fix arrives. atleast i can read my emails now!!

I went back to Yahoo mail and clicked on All New Mail. This is found by the Sign out button. In other words, you need to switch from mail classic to the other type that looks like outlook.

I'm trying to access my mail on my phone, but I keep getting a network error. A second message says the remote server is not responding.


Me too, its ok if you use yahoo app instead. I think its to do with the new yahoo mail upgrade. It makes my email program hang so it doesn't check my other accounts. They may have changed the pop address.

Had a Yahoo email account lost when HD was reformatted. Can I have access to it again or do I need to set up a new account?

You can retrieve your account by going to yahoo mail account and select the appropriate problem. if you forgot or need the password, just click i forgot my password and click next.

Trying To set up yahoo mail in my HTC phone need details


Hi,

You will need adjust the mail application's POP settings to get your Yahoo! Mail messages into it.

POP access is a service for owners of one of the following:


Yahoo! Mail Pop Access & Forwarding

Yahoo! Mail
Plus Premium Services
A Broadband account
A Small Business account

Please note that access to IMAP servers is not available.


To use an email client or application to send and receive Yahoo! Mail messages, you may need to designate a new incoming (POP) mail server and a new outgoing (SMTP) mail server. Consult your owner's manual for instructions on designating servers in the email application.


If you can't add new POP or
SMTP servers, you will need to change your current server settings.

Before you make any changes, write down your current settings. You might need to revert to your original settings later if you decide to send and receive messages from your other email addresses.


The following steps will help you find the POP settings for your Yahoo! Mail account and configure it:


Log onto your Yahoo! Mail account from a PC.

Click Options > Mail Options.
Click POP & Forwarding.
Click Set up or edit POP & Forwarding.
Click POP Settings.

Note your Server Setting information. Your phone email client or application will ask for these settings:


Incoming Mail Server (POP3)- for example, pop.mail.yahoo.com.

Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)- for example, smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
Account Name/Username, your Yahoo! Member ID- for example, myuserID.
Email address, your Yahoo! Mail address- for example, myuserID@yahoo.com.
Password, your Yahoo! Mail password- for example, l0ngitudin*l

Notes:


POP server settings may change from time to time and you should confirm the current POP server settings in Yahoo! Mail if it is not working.


When using
Microsoft Outlook, replace the "@" in your address with "%".

As an alternative to configuring Yahoo! Mail POP mail configurations, go to:


http://mobile.yahoo.com/mail

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mobile/...

Enter your phone number and send a link to your phone; the best Yahoo! Mail experience will be suggested to you.
Have a nice day

How to receive mails from two yahoo accounts to one place?


Hi Vinay,

You need to configur your microsoft outlook or windows mail or outlook express in such a way that you recive mails from both the account to one inbox. Follow the below steps if you have ms outlook.

Microsoft Outlook Express
Yahoo! Mail users can read their email in Outlook Express by subscribing to the Yahoo! Mail Plus service. This service allows you to use Outlook Express or another POP3 client to access and manage your Yahoo! Mail messages.

Outlook Express allows you to add a new email account to your existing profile. This means you do not have to replace your current settings in order to send and receive Yahoo! Mail messages. Here's how:

1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
2. Select the "Mail" tab.
3. Click the "Add" button.
4. From the Add menu, click "Mail."
5. In the text box labeled Display Name, type your name and click "Next."
6. In the Email Address box, type your Yahoo! Mail address (be sure to include "@yahoo.com") and click "Next."
7. Under "My incoming mail server is a..." select "POP3."
8. Type "pop.mail.yahoo.com" in the Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) Server box.
9. Type "smtp.mail.yahoo.com" in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server box.
10. Click "Next."
11. In the Account Name box, type your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
12. In the Password box, type your Yahoo! Mail password.
13. If you want Outlook Express to remember your password, check the "Remember password" box.
14. Do not check the boxes labeled "Log on using Secure..."
15. Click "Next."
16. Click "Finish."

Important: The Yahoo! Mail SMTP server now requires authentication. To turn this setting on:

1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
2. Select the "Mail" tab.
3. Double-click the account labeled "pop.mail.yahoo.com."
4. Select the "Servers" tab.
5. Check the box next to "My Server Requires Authentication."
6. Click "OK."

To control deletion of messages from the Yahoo! Mail Server:

1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
2. Select the "Mail" tab.
3. Double-click the account labeled "pop.mail.yahoo.com."
4. Select the "Advanced" tab.
5. In the Delivery section at the bottom of the window, check "Leave a copy of messages on server" if you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on the Yahoo! Mail server as well as on your local computer. Do not check this box if you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! Mail server once you have received them in Outlook Express.


If your ISP blocks port 25 or if you're unable to send email, then you will need to use port 587 when sending via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. To make this change, please follow the directions below:

1. From the "Tools" menu, select "Accounts"
2. Select your Yahoo! POP account and click on the "Properties" button
3. Click on the "Advanced" tab
4. Next to "Outgoing server (SMTP), change port 25 to 587
5. Click "Apply", then click "OK" and "Close"

Windows mail gave me this error message: Account: 'yahoo mail', Server: 'plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR popgate unknown command', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server...


If you have Yahoo! Mail Plus (a paid upgrade), you can access those messages directly from a standard email program (such as Outlook, Windows Live Mail, etc.). You need to configure the account settings in your email program for the Yahoo service.

The settings for incoming mail are:
Incoming (POP) server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
Port: 995
Security: SSL

For more on Yahoo server settings, see this Yahoo help page:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/mailplus/pop/pop-14.html

For details on configuring the WLM email program, see this Microsoft help page:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Windows-Mail-setting-up-an-account-from-start-to-finish#section_5

I want to send an email when a blue window pops up but dont know if my yahoo is pop3 or imap server? i also need incoming and outgoing e-mail server HELP


Incoming mail server settings

•POP server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
•Use SSL
•Port: 995

Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings

•SMTP server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
•Use SSL
•Port: 465
•Use authentication
•Account Name/Login Name: Your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com", for example, “testing80”)
•Email Address: Your Yahoo! Mail address (for example, testing80@yahoo.com)
•Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password

Troubleshooting tips

If you still can’t send Yahoo! Mail from your mail program, you may be accessing the Internet through an ISP that is blocking the SMTP port. If this is the case, try setting the SMTP port number to 587 when sending email via Yahoo!'s SMTP server.

Your email program gives you the option of either deleting your Yahoo! messages from the Yahoo! server after downloading them into your mail reader, or leaving them on the Yahoo! server so you can see them online in your Yahoo! account, too.

The server is not responding, please try after sometime


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"
