Question about Yahoo Mail

1 Answer

My Yahoo! mail is having a glitch. I'm not sure if it's not sending my mail to everyone I've emailed, but it certainly didn't send it to my husband. I email him daily, at his Yahoo! mail account. Once a couple of weeks ago it took like 12 hours to show up in his mailbox. This time we're going on 24 hours for one to show up (IF it shows up). We know I'm not on his blocked list or spam list... any ideas of why it's happening and what I can do? I'm worried other people aren't getting my emails, or aren't getting them for long periods of time! Thanks

Hi,

One thing you can start doing is to also send the email to yourself. (Yes, you can do that.) After you send it, you can sign out of your account and then sign back in a few minutes later. Your email should be there very quickly.

As to why your husband is not receiving his sooner is difficult to say. If he is using Yahoo too, it should not take long at all. It should use the same servers.

You can always contact Yahoo customer support. They are more knowledgable of their system. If you follow the Help link at the bottom of the Home page, eventually you will get a Contact Us link on one of the pages.

Thanks for using Fixya.

MAIL RETURNED UNABLE TO DELIVER, I DIDN'T SEND IT


If people in your address book are getting email from you that you didn't send, either your computer or your account has been hacked; you need to scan your computer for viruses and change your email password.

If only you are getting emails you didn't send, marked returned unable to deliver, a spammer is hiding his email address and making the email look like it came from you to get past Yahoo's spam filter. Report these messages as spam. If you keep getting them, you may need to set up a filter.

Dontrembermypassword


When you try to login it has a place to click if you can't get connection, or you may see a note to click if you've forgotten your password. They usually will send it to you via the alternative email address you gave when you signed up for the email account. If you don't see either of those you can email them and they might send you a security question to make sure it is you and then after you answer that they might send you the password or reset it for you. I haven't had to do that for yahoo mail but that is typically how it works :) Make sure you write it down someplace when you do get it fixed again.

Can not receive E-Mails, nor send E-Mails as such, including being notified by constituants.


There was a glitch today. I'm not sure where it originated at, but it ended up being an incompatibility issue between Internet Explorer 8 and Yahoo mail. My advice is to download and install Either FireFox or the Internet Explorer 9 Beta version to insure that it won't happen again.

When sending an email using yahoo mail program ,


Make sure that you are not on the blocked list of the reciepent. If this is not he case ask him to check the spam/bulk folder. This is becausemails with certain keywords are automatically redirected there. Ask the reciepent to open it and mark your mail as "Not spam". That should prevent this from happening in future.

Cannot connect to subscriber in China


Typically this error indicates that you are trying to send your Adhost email through Adhost’s mail server when you have not authenticated your email account to send mail. Our mail server authenticates you through your pop account. So when you check your email, our mail server authenticates your pop user and password, captures that IP that you are checking your email from, and adds that IP to our relay list. This list is flushed every 70 minutes. This means, if you try to send email after the relay list has been flushed and before you’ve attempted to check your email, you will receive this error.


How to fix the problem:

Fix #1 - reauthenticate on our server.

Remove any email from your Outbox. If you need to keep the message, you can move it to your 'Drafts' folder.
Click "Send/Receive". This will reauthenticate you.
Try resending the email.
Fix #2 - configure your email client to check for email before sending.

In Outlook, go to "Tools" and select "Email Accounts". Make sure "View or change existing e-mail accounts" is checked. Click Next.
Select your account from the list and click "Change".
Select "More Settings".
Select "Outgoing Server".
Check "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication".
Select "Log on to incoming mail server before sending mail".
Click "OK", then "Next", then "Finish".

This will fix your problem

After I send an email to someone, when they wish to respond, instead of coming back to me, the reply goes to a totally different email address, not mine


Try sending a message to yourself and then replying to it. The recipients might have a cached entry in their address book causing a the reply to be delivered to a different address.

If you have another email account with Hotmail or Gmail, try sending back and forth between them and your Yahoo account and use them for testing.

Does this happen with everyone or just one of your e-mail contacts?

If it's happening with everyone, you may need to contact Yahoo's support team to investigate the issue.

Hope this helps!
