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

I lost my emails since I upgraded from windoows xp to windows 7


Features available through Yahoo! Mail include unlimited storage, the ability to view photos and videos from your inbox and the ability to send 50 files or 100MB worth of attachments in a single email.

You can also access Yahoo!'s instant messaging software from your inbox and check email on your mobile phone and other Internet-enabled devices.

Before signing up for Yahoo! mail, check its compatibility with your version of Internet Explorer.Standard Yahoo! Mail


Yahoo! Mail's standard interface works with Internet Explorer 7 and higher. However, Internet Explorer 7 users may be unable to use the reply bar, slideshows or Yahoo! Messenger from their inbox.

To access these features, use at least Internet Explorer 9. All Internet Explorer users must have Windows 7, XP or Vista to use the standard form of Yahoo! mail. Mac operating systems using Internet Explorer are not supported by the current version of Yahoo! Mail.
Older Option


Users who want to use Yahoo! Mail Classic will find it compatible with Internet Explorer 6, as well as newer versions of the browser.

Yahoo! announced to customers in July 2011 that it would soon stop supporting Internet Explorer 6. Yahoo! Mail Classic works with Windows 2000, XP and Vista, as well as Windows 7.

Yahoo! Mail Classic lacks many of the upgrades found in the current version of the email program.

Upgrades
While Yahoo! Mail supports older versions of Internet Explorer, the company recommends that users upgrade to the most current version.

Yahoo! says using the newest browser software provides more speed and added protection against viruses and software.
Enabling ActiveX

If you plan to use the current version of Yahoo! Mail on a Windows machine, you'll want to enable your computer's ActiveX controls so you can access all the features of the email program.

To do this, go to the "Tools" menu or the gear symbol in Internet Explorer, then select "Internet Options" and "Security."

Click on "Internet," then "Custom Level."
Scroll down to "Run ActiveX Controls and Plugins" and "Script ActiveX Controls Marked Safe for Scripting." Enable each of these options and save your settings.

Reboot Internet Explorer.

I can not enter my yahoo inbox mails i am69 years old man i dont know how to use the new system. I want to use the old classic system


If you are using Internet Explorer: click tools at the top, then internet options, then security. Click "Custom Level" button, go to the scripting section and disable active scripting. Then Log in to your yahoo mail. Select "Return to a previous version of Yahoo! Mail" Once done you can return to the previous settings. Log out and login again.
If you are using Firefox go to tools > options > content. Click on disable Javascript. Then Log in to your yahoo mail. Select "Return to a previous version of Yahoo! Mail" Once done turn it back on. Log out and login again.

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.
Cheers!!

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.

thanks.

Can't Receive Yahoo Mail


Okay - I know it can be frustrating working with Yahoo.

Let's shut down your system completely then try again.

Have you added any new software lately?

Let me know if shutting the computer off and turning it on again solves this.

Sometimes Yahoo Mail Classic view works better than other versions.

After you turn computer back on, go to your yahoo page and look for the teeny tiny word "options" ...from there you can select Classic Yahoo Mail.

Try working in that version for a while then going back in a day or two to the other (customized version)

I hope this helps some. If not, update us on what you have tried and I will try to keep helping.

Good luck.

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 example@yahoo.com" to your yahoo id without the "@yahoo.com"

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 imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com
  5. Under Outgoing Mail Server, in Host Name field set it to cwmx.com
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.
