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!

SOURCE: Cannot open yahoo mail

You should be able to see those emails after hitting F5 from the keyboard a couple of times.

Also, try clearing your cache:

For IE, click Tools, Internet Options. In the general tab, under Delete browsing history, delete ALL.

Further, flush your DNS. Open a command prompt, then type:

ipconfig /flushdns

SOURCE: cant log into yahoo mail

I had the same problem 2 days ago, I tried a lot of things and finally got the the solution.
It was a DNS resolution problem
In my wireless netgear DG 834GT router settings (through IE), at the DNS address I unchecked "get automatic from ISP" then checked to use the primary DNS at 4.2.2.2 and secondary DNS at 4.2.2.3 ( I followed the Router's manual instructions )
Maybe u have to see in your Router manual what address u have to put for primary and secondary DNS?
Good luck, hope this will help

SOURCE: Yahoo welcome page after closing mail defaults to India

Your browser’s “homepage” is the webpage that you see each time you open a new browser window.
To set Yahoo! as your homepage, follow the instructions for your browser:

If you’re running a browser other than those listed above, refer to your browser's help file for instructions on setting Yahoo! as your homepage.

Usually Yahoo will lock down the account (no incoming/outgoing mail) for 12 hrs while they investigate the problem. You could try contacting them through their customer care:

I want my old Yahoo back


Yahoo has specifically disabled the "return to classic mail" link on the New Mail interface. This is specifically to discourage people from going back, as the old mail interface will eventually be removed completely, and all users will be forced onto the new one.

Here is the explanation page from Yahoo Help:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/migrating/fromclassic/mltamnoswitch.html


However there is a possible workaround to get back to Yahoo old mail. Open your browser (Firefox 5) and go to Tool-->Options-->Content, and UNcheck the box marked "Enable Javascript." This will disable Javascript from running in that browser. Then try to log into your Yahoo mail account. You should get an error message from Yahoo that your Javascript is disabled- ignore that, and continue to log in to your Mail account. Supposedly, you will be given the option to return to the old mail interface. If that occurs, go ahead and log in. You should then go back and re-enable Javascript, or your mail, and many other websites, will not function correctly.

Let us know if this works.

I can log onto yahoo mail, and i try to log onto chat from there and it will say its loading then wont sign in and says offline. Im confused on what to do.


Chat in Yahoo! Mail is only available with the following browsers:
-Internet Explorer version 6.0 and newer
-Firefox versions 2.0 and newer
-Safari version 3.0 and newer

If you are using an older browser version, please upgrade your browser to one of these supported versions.

To chat in Yahoo! Mail, you'll need Adobe Flash Player 9.0.115 (or higher). In case you need a newer version, you can download and install the latest Flash Player here for free.

Also, note that you can't be logged in in both Mail and Messenger with the same ID to chat. Hope this solves your problem, if not post back.
