Question about Yahoo Mail

Open Question

Paying Yahoo customer with the same problem

I started getting this problem about 6 weeks ago.
I go to my inbox, using the newer version of Yahoo Mail, I get the error message #2.
Since the message description is "Oops, looks like we had a problem getting some new message headers....", I would guess that there is nothing that the user could implement to get around this. I just keep trying until I get my messages. Annoying.
If I leave the email application up, and return sometime later, then it guaranteed that I will see this message on my screen, as Yahoo automatically looks for new message periodically. So, I keep clicking on the Inbox, and eventually I get my messages without any other action on my part.
Yahoo, teamed with AT&T, is my ISP. I pay for their fastest service, and pay the additional $12 annual fee so that I don't have advertisements on my mail page.

SOURCE: Yahoo mail login errors

It is pssible to get to your mail by changing your account to Yahoo Classic. To do this you will need to go to Yahoo's home page and click on the 'Mail' link. When the "Error" 1st message comes up click OK. When the 2nd messgae appears move the "Error" message over the "having trouble loggin on" message located in the top right of the of the screen. Locate the OK button over this message. Very quickly, and I mean rapid, click the OK button twice. You may need to do this several times to time it right - it took me three times, When Yahoo's solutions appear just click in the Classic option. I am now back in touch witth the world and although it hasn't resolved Yahoo's problem yoou will, at long last be in touch. I'm not claiming to be a problem solver, I found this in Yahoo's answers.

Hope this resolves your problem. Good Luck

SOURCE: Yahoo e-mail service

I Can't access my e-mail service past 3days. There is a message from the Yahoo Team that begins "Sorry for the inconvenience, you've stumbled upon a temporary problem we're having with the e-mail service". It then advises possible courses of action, all of which I've tried, including the Link to Customer Care at Error 5

Do what I did 6 yrs ago. Dump YA-Hoo mail. It' s not all that useful. I went w/ & have at least 5 unique w/ them. Can use as online only, or do what I do..... I use Safari as my normal search engine, but I set FFox to open w/ sign on page as homepage. I just open FFox & can use it as a dual mail pgrm & 2nd search engine... works well. is just 10000k more useful as a mail pgrm.
I also have all my email address/ accounts auto load to my own Mail pgrm. (mac mail), u should have your own mail pgrm besides the online only yaHoo/Hotbox/blueballs or what ever just because it Works Better that way.
I am not going to go into why, again, for the 1k time... just go & try it out. 5gig free.....

I have signed and opened mail box but i am not able to open inbox and it shows server error. How to open inbox?

Hi, In yahoo mail, the newer version usually uses java to navigate through your mails, try clicking on the option drop down found in the upper right corner and then choose classic. It will load the previous type of yahoo mail and you should be able to see the inbox.

Can sign in to my yahoo mail, but am unable to access my inbox.

this can happen either because of browser incompatibility or improper sign out.
try out the following:
1. clear the cookies of the browser(ctrl+shift+del)
2. restart the browser application.
3. now go to yahoo mail and sign in.

you wont get the same problem. Use mozilla firefox to avoid any kind of problems.

Cannot get email

This is a very common problem. Upgrading you iphone firmware if it's not current may solve this problem. Or try changing your address for the account from" to your yahoo id without the ""

Otherwise the built-in yahoo option for iphone can be buggy:
  1. Delete the Yahoo account on your iphone
  2. Create anew account via Other option
  3. Fill in the usual user id and password fields
  4. Under IMAP tab set Host Name under Incoming Mail Server to
  5. Under Outgoing Mail Server, in Host Name field set it to
If you have a very large yahoo inbox, you may have to do the following:

1. Go to your yahoo account in a regular browser on your computer. Makesure you're using the new version of Yahoo mail (the one that looks andfeels like outlook).

2. Create a new folder. I called mine "archive - inbox".

3. Select ALL emails in your inbox so that your inbox folder will becompletely empty once you move them (there's a box you can check whichwill select everything). I had over 5,000 emails in my inbox, so thiswould have taken ages using the Classic version of Yahoo mail.

4. Move all emails to your newly created archive folder. Go back intothe archive folder and select any unread/new emails and move them backto your inbox.

5. Go into Yahoo on your iphone and refresh the mail. This will clearout the old emails and download the most recent emails from your inbox.
