  • Anonymous Apr 05, 2009

    From time to time my friends ring to say their emails are being rejected because they are told my inbox is nearly full. I get the message by email and I clear all deleted files, sent messages and even from some of my folders. Is there somewhere else that I can clear to help this problem?

    Thanks

Dear Bobpick,
the root cause of problem is so many.
Make sure you have personal folder. make sure if you using outlook right click to mailbox go to properties and then check the capacity, you can see which folder is full and deleted manually.

Mailbox is near capacity. I'd like to keep my e-mails. How do I expand capacity?


Hello,
If you use a free email provider such as hotmail, gmail etc... they do offer way more space if you pay. If you won't want to pay you could setup your email in outlook, windows mail, outlook express etc... and copy the messages to your local PC and delete them off the server. You could also delete sent items, spam and old emails to reduce your disk space.

I delete my emails by mistake, how can I retreive it back please. It is very urgent and important.


Hi . If you deleted your email messages and the trash folder hasn't been cleared out yet, you'll be able to find it there. In the TRASH FOLDER. You can find it in the list of folders on the left pane of Yahoo! Mail.

Hope this helps. Have a great day. :)

I am tying to set up yahoo account on thunderbird. i can send email but not receive.. i have tried changing server settings and port settings


Much more common is a sending issue. Often you have to send through your ISP server, contact them for what that server is, if you have sending issues.

I found directions for Outlook, which should be similar to Thunderbird:

Look closely at requires authentication settings....

Note: You must be a Yahoo! Mail Plus user to read Yahoo! Mail in an email reader program such as Microsoft Outlook. Click here for information about subscribing to Yahoo! Mail Plus.
To read your Yahoo! Mail Plus using Microsoft Outlook 2002 or 2003, follow these steps:
  1. From the Tools menu, select Email Accounts.
  2. Select Add a new email account and click Next.
  3. Select POP3 and click Next.
  4. Enter the following information:
    • User Information

      Your Name: Type your name as you'd like it to appear when you send an email message.

      E-Mail Address: Type your Yahoo! Mail Plus email address (for example, testing80@yahoo.com).
    • Server Information

      Incoming mail server (POP3): Type plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com.

      Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Type plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
    • Login Information

      User Name: Type your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").

      Password: Type your Yahoo! password.
    • Select the Remember Password checkbox if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
    • Do not select the Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
  5. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  6. Select the Outgoing Server tab:
    • Select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox.
    • Make sure that Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected.
  7. Click the Advanced tab:
    • Under Incoming Server (POP3), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox. The number in the Incoming Server (POP3) field usually changes automatically from 110 to 995. If it doesn't, type 995.
    • In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) field, type 465. Under Outgoing Server (SMTP), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox.
    • If you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on both the Yahoo! Mail server and on your computer, select the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox. If you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! server once Outlook has downloaded them onto your computer, leave the box unchecked.

      Note: After your messages are deleted from the server, we cannot retrieve them.
  8. Click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  9. Click Finish to close the Add New E-mail Account dialog box.
  10. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.
Troubleshooting tips
If you still can't send Yahoo! Mail from Outlook, you might be accessing the Internet through an ISP that is blocking the SMTP port. If this is the case, try using port 587 when sending email via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. To make this change:
  1. From the Tools menu, select Account Settings. The Account Settings dialog box appears.
  2. Select your Yahoo! Mail Plus account and click Properties. The Change E-mail Account dialog box appears.
  3. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) box, type 587.
  6. Click Apply, and then click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  7. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.
