AOL Home Page

In the past when I logged on I got to the Rogers Yahoo Home Page. Now when I log on I get to an AOL Home Page. Is this a new feature offered by Compaq because I never asked for this. Now I have to go to the Favourites options to get access to Yahoo. How do I get rid of this AOL Home Page.

Thanks.

Go to tools menu in the menu bar in internet explorer, then go to internet options. Set your home page as you like in the internet options box.

Alternatively locate internet options inside control panel, it will open same box.
Here is an example of how internet options windows looks like:

I want to return back to yahoomail classic


Yahoo! has recently made over its email client, Yahoo! Mail. The old standard Yahoo! Mail Classic look has been replaced with New Yahoo! Mail, which offers most of the same features but looks different and is organized differently. Yahoo! Mail users who don't like New Yahoo! Mail, or who simply like Yahoo! Mail Classic better, can switch back to the classic view easily.
Step 1. Log in to your Yahoo! Mail account
In your web browser, go to the Yahoo! Mail home page (http://mail.yahoo.com). Sign in to your account using your Yahoo! ID and password, then click the yellow Sign In button. Once you've successfully logged in, you'll see your email folders on the left and the What's New and Inbox tabs in the middle.
Step 2. Choose the Mail Classic option
On the upper right side of the page, there are three links -- Mobile, Options, and Help. Click Options, and when the drop down menu appears, choose "Mail Classic..."
Step 3.Confirm that you want to switch back
A dialog box will pop up with two choices -- Switch to Yahoo! Mail Classic and Cancel. If you're sure you want to switch, click the first option; otherwise, choose Cancel to keep the New Yahoo! Mail. (If you wish to provide feedback about Yahoo! Mail, you can click the feedback link in the dialog box, which will open up a new window.)
Depending on your computer's speed and your Internet connection, the switch may take several seconds. When it's completed, you'll be looking at the old familiar Yahoo! Mail Classic interface.
I hope you're satisfy with my answer.
Have a good day! : )

Yahoo has been experiencing a system wide problem. Many of Yahoo! Mail customers are experiencing the same problem you're having.

To assist Yahoo mail customers with this problem, AOL will transfer all of your contact information and future emails from your Yahoo account to your new AOL account for the next 30 days for free. (Until Yahoo can correct the problem). You won't miss any emails from your Yahoo account.. They will be automatically forwarded to your new AOL account.

Here are the instructions:

1) Go to AOL and set up a new AOL email account. (Click on this link) https://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/login.psp?seamless=novl&locale=us&offerId=newmail-en-us-v2&siteState=ver%3A4'rt%3ASTANDARD'at%3ASNS'ld%3Awebmail.aol.com'uv%3AAOL'lc%3Aen-us'mt%3AAOL'snt%3AScreenName'sid%3Af27fcb24-926a-4b22-ac39-ac0d19e1d3f4&authLev=0&sitedomain=sns.webmail.aol.com&lang=en

2) During the set up process you will be asked to provide a security question. Later, you'll need to answer the security question to set up the transfer, so don't forget the answer.

3) Once your new AOL account is set up, go to your AOL email page. Look in the upper right hand top corner for the word, SETTINGS and click on it.

4) (Next page) On the left hand side, look for the word, Accounts and click on it.

5) (Next Page) Look on the line beginning with, Transfer Accounts and locate the link that reads, AOL Easy Transfer and click on it.

6) (Next Page) Agree to the terms of service and click on, Get Started.

7) (Next Page) Under Copy from, enter your Yahoo email address and password.

8) Under Copy to, enter your new AOL email address and password.

9) (Next Page) Carefully Read, and select the options you need. (Click, Continue)

10) (Next Page) Click, Go to AOL Mail.

11) (Next Page) Enter the answer to your security question you created when you set up your new AOL email account. (Click, Continue)

12) (Next Page) Look at the top Left hand corner and click on, MAIL.

That's it. (Although AOL says that it may take up to 24 hours to complete the process - it usually only takes about 30 minutes.) After you receive your confirmation email, Click on your Contacts in your AOL account. When you see your Contacts from your Yahoo account there, the transfer has completed.

Hi,
If you are using windows Outlook express, Internet surf to the page you want to have as your home page. Click on the menu

-tools
-Internet options
-general

At the very top of this window you should be able to choose your home page.

My Windows xp version offers me the option to just

"click here to use current as home page". Then:

-apply
-okay

Your version may be different.

If you are not an outlook user or don't understand any of this please just post as much info as you can about what you know about your computor and I'll get back to you.
