SOURCE: Problems with Yahoo mail account
Does someone else know your password. If they too login to the yahoo mail account with the same id and password at the same time, this error may occur. Try changing your password and see if the problem continues.

Go to your Yahoo email account and look at the right of the screen, next to where your name shows up (it says "Hi, [your_name]!"). To the right of your name is a tiny link that says "sign out." Click this, and you should be able to log into your new account.

alot of the times, just going into internet options and setting everything to default, and clearing the cookies and files works about 50% of the time.
This is possibly a yahoo issue. If you use yahoo thru ATT, you can call ATT for support and they will escalate any valid issues to yahoo for you.
Their phone number is 1-877-722-3755
ask for tech support at the prompt
they can remote on your computer to see if it is a java issue or whatever
if they can replicate it on their computer also, they will create a yahoo trouble ticket and give you thier member service number. Yahoo resolves 85% of these within 48 hrs.
If they cant replicate it, then they will consider it a pc issue and refer you to connect tech or to best buy's geek squad.
Personally, I would also try sending emails in safemode, If you can do it in safemode, and not in reg mode, it is definately PC related.
To get to safemode, turn your computer off and when you turn it back on, tap the F8 button until you get an advanced screen. Pick safemode with networking with the arrow keys. Log in, click yes when it tells you you're running in safemode, and then when your on your desktop, which will look alot differnt, black background with big icons, click on internet explorer and go to mail.yahoo.com and see if it works now, if it does, like i said, its pc related. If it still cant, call ATT's support if you have thier DSL or U-Verse

MAIL ACCESS PROBLEM
When you set up an e-mail account
with free public e-mail services such as Yahoo! Mail , Hotmail/Live or Google Mail, you are invited during the setup procedure to enter an Alternat(iv)e
E-Mail Address. The purpose of this is to provide an address to which the
Support Team of the E-mail Service Provider can send a link or code (or both)
to enable users who have forgotten their passwords to reset their passwords.
Go to the Log In/Sign In page of the
e-mail account you are having problems with and click on "Forgotten
Password". Enter your alternative e-mail address and then submit a
Password reset request. You may also be asked some security questions in order
to verify you as the account holder. Once you have accessed and opened the
Yahoo e-mail sent to the alternative e-mail address, click on the link inside
and you will be allowed to reset your password.
To avoid mistyped password errors,
this time, before you enter the new password, type it into a text or e-mail and
then copy and paste that into the password box before submitting it. Send the
text or e-mail containing the password to yourself or to your other,
functioning e-mail address and save this e-mail in a discreet folder on your
Unfortunately if, for any reason,
you are unable to access the alternative e-mail address or accurately answer
all the security questions, then you will never be allowed access that account
again, unless you can remember and enter the correct Username, Password and Security
In that event, however, there is
nothing to stop you opening another Yahoo! Mail account. Only the
Username/E-Mail Address will have to be different.
I hope this helps.
