Yahoo mail error code14, 17, 999

I am experiencing lots of problems with Yahoo mail lately. Getting lots of error 999, error code 17, 14,,,,,,,, you name it. Today I cant even open any email. I get signed out of yahoo messenger with a message saying that " You have been signed off because you signed in on a different computer or device!!!" Strange isn't it? May be someone has hacked my yahoo ID and Pw and is doing it at the same time I am. Certainly I am not signing in on two different devices. I tried the new Yahoo mail thinking that the problem may go away but got the error 999 saying: unable to perform the requested task = not being able to open new emails. Help please help. I got too many good emails and don't like switching to another service provider. By the way I have asked for help before but have only received the typical kind of automatic answer from yahoo data base. Please SOMEONE HELP. Thanks a zillion.

You can access your email here for now until Yahoo gets all the bugsout. They have been upgrading their servers lately, causing problemsfor all of us. Or: It's basic, but it works. I used it last night when they were messing around with my compose screen.

Dear friend, I agree with you that yahoo has some errors and unknown problem with its fantastic number error like 999! but it's a little strange to have too many problems and errors. About that Error in YM, maybe you hacked (as you said), according to your talking, I guess your computer infected by some viruses, and another problem is your OS maybe and also your network. I strongly suggest you to re-install your OS, and install a powerful anti virus, update it and scan your files on system. And about Error 999: Error 999 IS a Ban ... a censor tool, used by Yahoo

Help-link:- (( )

You can do a few things if you are impatient ( re cleanup computer, dump temp files etc) but this will not help error 999 the best option if you have a dynamic IP is to do a full "flick of the switch", and when you power back up you will come back with a new IP, ( with some turn off comp for 8 hours), but usually you get a new IP when you power up straight after the shutdown, you can continue posting the link under the new IP. 

Best quick fix >>>> login to your Yahoo! mail via an international server... and access your mail / ya / 360 /games from there by clicking the mail icon, stay within that browser. That, is the best temp fix for the system

Also reply to Yahoo using the link they give you in that Error 999 page. I did it once or twice and I was free from the Error. It has been said that answering, voting too quickly may cause that Error. So give some gap of 2-3 mins between any two Questions you answer.

Almost Always I got this problem solved by following the above suggestions

Yahoo mail will not start ie error 14

My answer is going to be somewhat flippant, so tune out if you are easily offended. There are a lot of people having this problem. Google search "IE error 14" or "Internet explorer error 14". There are lots of questions and answers regarding this.
My flippant answer is to first quit using IE (Google is cleaner, gives me the answers I am looking for, and is very configurable). Second, quit using Yahoo... but then these are both personal choices. I tried to be flippant... couldn't keep with it. I really hope you resolve your problem.

The error, LaunchEmptyResponse, occurred when trying to connect to Yahoo! Mail.

Hi. I Think that's the error LAUNCH FFC-1. If yes, there are hundreds or thousands of people experiencing that problem. You will experienced that problem if you are using BT Yahoo! Mail. Try to switch back to Yahoo! Mail Classic. I think yahoo is aware with the problem, maybe they are upgrading the servers or anything that's why this problem occurs. Try to switch to other browser and if the problem still exist I think you need to wait until the problem fixed by Yahoo.

Lately I am having issues with Yahoo e-mail. It has become unresponsive or sends me errors like #5 or #999 or simply hangs. I'd rather get my e-mail than those politely worded apologies that I eventually...

Regrettably, Yahoo! Mail has deteriorated in my personal experience as well, on both Windows XP and Mac OS X operating systems, and in IE and Firefox browsers. The problem is that the new Yahoo! Mail is a fairly complex application with a lot of programming code that must be run by the Web browser (known as DHTML or browser Javascript). This code provides the all the fancy drag & drop functionality, etc. The display advertising within Y! Mail appears to make matters worse, especially if these graphical ads contain animation and are rendered with the Flash plug-in. When this happens, the browser is executing both DHTML and Flash programming code, and slowing down further, or introducing more bugs.
You may wish to try gmail (google's email). You will find many Yahoo employees admitting that they prefer Google's gmail for their own personal use.
