Question about Yahoo Mail
Hi, Can you please help me reset the account Language and time zone at my account NancyPee88@yahoo.ca ? It is current set to Yahoo China which I accidentally selected China Yahoo so it is showing simplified Chinese characters when I log into my mail account, I just want it back to the default of Yahoo Canada English. When I try to guess where my account is, it askes me to verify password but the account info always reset to ending .com.cn which is a China Yahoo account (that I don't have) so I don't have password for it and cannot go further. (Not to mention I don't know simplified Chinese characters and all the action and tabs are in that format.) Please help. Thank you.
Thanks for using FixYa. Given below is the step-by-step instruction to follow for changing your language from Chinese to English Canada.
Your country/language setting – what Yahoo! Mail calls your “Preferred Content” – can be adjusted by following these steps:
Click on the drop down arrow beside your name in the upper left corner, select Edit My Account and follow these steps---
1. A new browser page will open. Please enter your password and click Continue
2. Click Edit to the right of “Member Information”.
3. In the General Preferences category, click the Preferred Content link.
4. From the pull-down menu in the “Preferred Content” window, select the country you want.
Are you seeing garbled characters in a non-US-language email? If so, you can change Yahoo! Mail’s character encoding setting. It’s easy! Here’s how:
1. In the toolbar, click More Actions and select Set Encodings.
2. From the list that appears, select the encoding that matches the message’s content.
Note: Only one character encoding set may be viewed at a time. And in this case, changing your browser’s encoding setting will not work.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
