Question about Yahoo Mail

1 Answer

I cannot seem to open any web site that is related

I try to log onto Yahoo, yahoo mail, yahoo fantasy sports, or yahoo search.. anything related to yahoo and I cannot access any of these web sites. I have run virus scans and malware scans and spybot scans all come up negative as far as viruses or problems.


This is what I get when I try to access these web sites...
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

  • Internet connectivity has been lost.
  • The website is temporarily unavailable.
  • The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
  • The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
  • There might be a typing error in the address.
  • If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.

For offline users
You can still view subscribed feeds and some recently viewed webpages.
To view subscribed feeds
  1. Click the Favorites Center button , click Feeds, and then click the feed you want to view.

To view recently visited webpages (might not work on all pages)
  1. Click Tools , and then click Work Offline.
  2. Click the Favorites Center button , click History, and then click the page you want to view.

    I can now access some Yahoo web sites, i tried firefox and got the same problem, I can ping yahoo.com and get 4 replies with 0% loss. I now thing its more of a wireless router problem, because this is happening on my laptop. At home everything works just fine, but when the laptop is at work I cannot access some yahoo sites, I cannot seem to send emails out with microsoft outlook but I can recieve them. So I am thinking that my Netgear router is going bad.

    If you try puttinghttp://au.yahoo.com/ in the Address bar and press enter, does that work? If you have another web browser installed (like Firefox, Chrome, Opera), could you try using that other browser (instead of IE) to get to Yahoo sites and see if you can get a more specific error message? Can you try opening a Command Prompt (usually in Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt or Start -> Run -> "cmd") and enter "ping yahoo.com"? If you get 4 replies and the statistics say 0% loss, then you can eliminate Internet connectivity has been lost and the DNS issues as the cause. Or if you get an error from the ping, that should tell you what is wrong. You can close the Command Prompt when you have finishing looking at the ping results.

It's good that you have narrowed down the problem to when your laptop is at your work.
I have two suggestions for narrowing it down further,
(1) tell us exactly what error you get from Firefox when you try to access yahoo sites from your work
(2) try a ping before and after you have a problem getting to yahoo sites. (You might want to try this a few times to see if it is consistent.)

If ping says 0% loss before and after you have a problem accessing Yahoo at work, then that suggests the problem is NOT with your wireless router (unless it is doing filtering). Instead, it would be more likely an issue with filtering/blocking/firewall or web cache/proxy. It might even be a deliberate decision by your work-place to block access to Yahoo for employees.

How do I get my E-mail


If you installed Google Chrome, that is a web browser. Both Google and Yahoo are web based services that load on the browser. Just type in Yahoo on any browser and use like any web page.

They both also have tool bars. Same principal. gl

Not working my pasword


First try to see that your password is correct or not. Log into mail.yahoo.com and if you are able to login website. Then try terminating yahoo from task manager ( do ctrl+alt+del to open task manager). Go to processes tab on task manager and search for YahooMessenger.exe, right click and click on end process. Start yahoo messenger again and try logging in again.

If this doesnt work, you can try uninstalling and installing the yahoo again. But after unstallation make sure to remove all the remain of files related to yahoo. Hope this solves the problem, it did for me.

Not able to logg into yahoo mail at all!


Logging into Yahoo mail results in "opening page about: blank" IE browser hang.
This is not caused by a virus, trojan, spyware or anything like that! Yahoo have been making changes to the appearance of their home page and also their e-mail, you've probably seen the new choices.
As a result, the screen resolution of 800 x 600 on many PCs will no-longer allow you to sign in without the "opening page about: blank" IE browser hanging problem.
Try changing your screen resolution to 1024 x 768, that should cure it!
Right click on desktop / Properties / Settings and move slider to 1024 x 768
