Question about Yahoo Mail

2 Answers

My email is suddenly very slow. I mean when I type there is a big lag to the words actually showing on the page and it keeps freezing and takes for ever to send a message once I actually do get it typed. I just emptied my inbox and defraged and cleaned up my disc in case that had anything to do with it. We just downloaded Skype the other day-could that have anything to do with it?

If you are using a dial-up modem, then Skype is taking up all the dial-up modem connection ("Voice" traffic has priority over data traffic). Un-install Skype.

If you have a DSL or Cable modem then it's probably your ANTI-VIRUS / INTERNET (whatever) software gone wild because Skype is connecting to the Internet by itself. Again, un-install Skype.

Yes, Yahoo is not the fastest, but it may be your favorite.... your option; I have no opinion of the use of Yahoo or any other email system.

I hope this helps... Please comment if you need more info or assistance.

Hi

Try using the mobile link to yahoo email and see if your able to login CLICK HERE YAHOOOOOOO MOBILE

see if it works.

You might want to consider Gmail instead of yahoo. www.gmail.com alot more of space and I've never had issues with it.

also you could try using yahoo with another internet browser like google chrome you can get it and try it from www.google.com/chrome

Attachments freeze computer


If you press [ALT]+[TAB] and bring the email message with the attachment to the front and send it, that should release your mail. Until you actually send your email (or save it to send later), Word will not allow you to close it.

Or, just to make life easier, save your document, and attach IT to your email rather than trying to send the document from within Word.

It sounds like you're using Outlook, which has a nasty habit of keeping hold of objects (like your Word Document) until it is finished with them, sometimes requiring that it be completely closed.

How can i unhighlite the text in macbook word 2008


JUST READ THROUGH
Just wondering if anyone else was having issues with Microsoft Word from MS Office 2008, where you open the application, you type a few sentences, and the application freezes with the spinning circle of death that won't go away until you click the dock where it says "application not responding" and do a force-quit? You can leave the circle spinning for 10-20-30 minutes, and it never goes away.

Now for the weird part--this error only happens for me when I'm using a specific document on my computer. I can open Word, start a new document, type several paragraphs of text, and it works fine. But I've been working on an existing paper for about two months that all of a sudden started causing these freezes/crashes when editing it. It's about 30 pages roughly, no images, no big inserts that would take up a lot of memory (116 kb in size). And up until today, there were no problems. So why all of a sudden can't I edit anything on this paper without freezing the program?! I downloaded the Microsoft Office 2008 Service Pack 1 that was just released after this problem started, and ran all the recent Java and program updates through Software Update with computer restarts. I even copied the text from the Word document I was working on, pasted it into a new document, tried saving it as both .doc and .docx, and again the program still freezes when working with that text in a new file. This one baffles me. It's like the text within a document is somehow freezing the application. One thing I did notice is that the freezes seem to happen when I'm scrolling using a mouse wheel. Not always, but quite a bit. I suppose this is some memory issue related to several pages of text that the program can't render or process when you add new lines of text or scroll, but again, I can't figure why this paper I've been working on for months all of a sudden decided to start freezing Word today. Can you really only have 30 double-spaced pages of text in Word before it crashes?

Looks like I've found my reason to switch to Open Office, since I'm 3-4 days out from a

My file that is 48 pages in Microsoft word is very slow to work in...how do I speed it up? I type and the words show after I type a whole sentence!


There may b 2 reasons
1. Your pc may b otherwise slow because of installation of lot of unnecessary softwares. The memory use to show / type the words is already used by these softwares / programmes. Check if you can delete some softwares which u dont use normally.
2. You may b requiring additional memory as the RAM installed in your pc may b less
