I don't know why the problem of not being able to log into Yahoo email accounts exists, but you're not alone. If you know that the problem is not you entering an incorrect user name or password, there is a work-around to get into Yahoo mail. And, it takes less than 5 minutes to set it all up.

Every time I've recommended this solution to someone for their Yahoo Mail problem, it's worked.

The easiest way to sign into your Yahoo email account is to use Firefox as your browser and download the Webmail notifier add-on for Firefox.

With the click of a mouse, you'll be sent directly to your Yahoo email page without having to manually sign in to Yahoo.

Click here for Firefox download: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4490

To add Webmail Notifier it to your Firefox toolbar click here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4490

1) After downloading and re-starting Firefox, right click in an empty area on your TOP toolbar in Firefox and select, 'Customize.' (A window with icons will open.)

2) Locate and drag the envelope icon to your upper toolbar and click, 'Done'.

3) Once the envelope is seated on the toolbar, right click on the envelope icon and choose, 'Options'. (A window will open.)

4) Select, Yahoo from the drop down menu.

5) Type in your full email address in the 'User Name' box.

6) Type in your Yahoo mail password in the password box.

7) Click, Add

8) Make sure 'Enable Login' is checked that the bottom.

9) Click, > OK.

Now, when you want to go to your Yahoo email just click on the little envelope icon and you'll be sent straight to your email page in Yahoo.

- I forgot to add, the envelope will be gray when you don't have any unread emails, but turns yellow when you do.

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs-up when you rate my answer. Thanks!

Will not let me open. I get an error message when I click on messages. To open I have to go thru my yahho


Hi,

Let me understand your issue. When you are logged in Yahoo messenger and you receive an email, you are not able to open it and it gives an error message to launch ?

If so,

Follow the below instructions to resolve the issue
You will have to set Internet Explorer as your default browser
You will have to Clear/delete unwanted files and cookies stored in your PC memory downloaded from Internet surfing. ( there is no harm in deleting the cookies/files downloaded while surfing )

1. Open Internet Explorer
Click on Tools from menu bar ( or you will find it on right side corner of Internet Explorer )
Click on Internet Options ( a window opens )
Under General Tab - Click on Delete button
Or
you may find Delete Files and Delete Cookies
Delete the files and cookies and click Apply button

2. Open Internet Explorer
Click on Tools from menu bar
Click on Internet Options ( a window opens )
Click on Programs Tab from top
You will find Default Web Brower
Click on the option Make Default
Click Apply button below and Click ok

Next time try to open the mail once you receive and it should open from the click without you opening yahoo mail page.

Could be either a poor internet connection or just poor server response time from yahoo. Its probably struggling to load and just times out. This happens to me with just about any website from time to time. Try repairing your internet connection, or just waiting for another time (side note...Mozilla Firefox is the way to go)

My yahoomail wont open


Most of the time, the internet browser is the problem when a page won't load up. If you're accessing your Yahoo! Mail everyday, there will come a time that your browser will be filled out with cookies and cache.

However, you must try to isolate first, to make sure that the problem is the browser and not the Yahoo! Mail sign in page. Here are the things that you may try:

1. Try to use different internet browser and access your Yahoo! Mail. If the sign in page loads up, then it's the browser.

2. Try to access the Yahoo! Mail in a different computer that is connected to a different network.

If the problem is only happening in one browser, then it's the browser. You may try to clear the cookies and cache. Here's how:

* For Internet Explorer
- Open your IE > Tools > Internet Options
- Click the "Delete" button under the browsing history.
- Select cookies, internet files, etc.
- Select "Delete All".
- Close and re-open your IE.
- Try to access your Yahoo! Mail.

* For Mozilla Firefox
- Open Firefox > Tools > Clear Recent History.
- Select cookies, cache, browsing and download, etc.
- Click on "Clear Now"
- Close and re-open your Firefox
- Try to access your Yahoo! Mail.

Thank you and good luck!

When I click on Yahoo Mail I get a Cant display


It sounds like you are using internet explorer. If this is correct, here are some 
troubleshooting steps you can try:

First of all, Did you check to see if you are connected to the internet? If so, try refreshing your browser.

Option 2- Close your browser and then reopen it. Type in www.yahoomail.com and see if the sign in page shows up.

If none of these options work this may be a problem that you would have to contact micosoft about. The microsoft website has trouble shooting forums, live chat with a microsoft technician, email a technician, and there  is also most recent information related to popular issues with internet explorer, specifically to "internet explorer not displaying the webpage" 

Another suggestion I have for you is that if you have another internet browser such as "Mozilla Firefox" Try accessing yahoo mail that way. 

Hope this helps!

I have to sign in every time I check my mail. I check my mail at least four times a day. rosalee_boddy2000@yahoo.com


This could be due to a few issues.

One on your internet explorer options, you may have it set to delete cookies everytime it closes.

Two, you may not be checking the box that says keep me signed in for two weeks when you sign into yahoo mail.

If you are checking the box, then it is definetly the cookies setting on internet explorer. Go into the tools menu, internet options, and change it to where it doesnt delete settings and temporary cookies when you close internet explorer.

Also, when you are done checking your yahoo mail, do not click on sign out, or that will cause you to sign in everytime, and one final note.

After you are done using internet explorer to check you yahoo mail, dont close the internet explorer page, just type in maybe google.com or something of the sort. And leave the internet explorer window open.

( you can minimize it if you like)

Thank you for using Fixya, and please rate my solution!

Cannot open yahoo mail at all... says internet explorer cannot open this window... help!


Is it just this page that is affected? Can you open other web pages? Try logging out of Yahoo Mail and signing back in (if you can). Can you access that web page via a different browser (Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.)? Also, try clearing your cookies, browsing history and temporary files and then go to that page again.
