Scams and Phishing on Yahoo! Mail.


If you receive an email asking you to update your banking details or that you've won a huge sum of money from Yahoo! then these are scams. Firstly a bank will <b>NEVER</b> ask you to update your account details through an email, don't under any circumstances click on any links within a mail like this. Secondly, when you receive a mail stating that <b>YOU</b> have won a huge sum of money from some lottery in some foreign country or from Yahoo! this too is fake. The Yahoo! Corporation in Holland Lottery scam is one of them. Again don't by any means reply to it or send them any of your personal information. Contact Yahoo! <a href="http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/helpcentral/helpcentral_contactus.html">here</a> and click on <b>Mail</b> under <b>M</b> in the list, this will take you to a page to login. Login, then click on the heading <b>Got Spam? Report it here</b> as shown in the following picture:<br /><br /><img src="slasher_x_26.JPG" /><br />This will take you to a page where you need to tell Yahoo! everything about the scam, including the Full Headers and Contents of the mail. I will explain how to get the full headers of an e-mail now.<br /><br /><b><u>How to copy the full Headers in Yahoo Mail!</u></b><br />1) With the e-mail open, click <b>Actions</b> to the top right.<br /><br /><img src="slasher_x_27.jpg" /><br />2) This will display a drop down menu shown here:<br /><br /><img src="slasher_x_28.jpg" /><br />3) Click on <b>Full Header</b> to display the following window:<br /><br /><img src="slasher_x_29.jpg" /><br />4) Copy the entire text (all the words in this window) to the headers box:<br /><br /><img src="slasher_x_30.JPG" /><br />5) Then copy the contents of the mail to the next box:<br /><br /><img src="slasher_x_31.JPG" /><br />6) And then click submit.<br /><br />Easy as that! This will enable Yahoo! to filter such scam e-mails in the main server and prohibit them from entering anyone's account in the future, and it's all thanks to you!! Good Job! Feel great, you have just saved a huge amount of people from falling for these ingenious scams.

I cannot access my yahoo email. i get a message invalid id or password which i know the password and id are right


Hi vspbas

I would request you to first enter the email ID and click on forgot password. There it is ask for security question which you have set at time of creating the yahoo account. If you able to answer the security question, you can gain access to you account successfully.

Let me know if you still have issues.

How to receive mails from two yahoo accounts to one place?


Hi Vinay,

You need to configur your microsoft outlook or windows mail or outlook express in such a way that you recive mails from both the account to one inbox. Follow the below steps if you have ms outlook.

Microsoft Outlook Express
Yahoo! Mail users can read their email in Outlook Express by subscribing to the Yahoo! Mail Plus service. This service allows you to use Outlook Express or another POP3 client to access and manage your Yahoo! Mail messages.

Outlook Express allows you to add a new email account to your existing profile. This means you do not have to replace your current settings in order to send and receive Yahoo! Mail messages. Here's how:

1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
2. Select the "Mail" tab.
3. Click the "Add" button.
4. From the Add menu, click "Mail."
5. In the text box labeled Display Name, type your name and click "Next."
6. In the Email Address box, type your Yahoo! Mail address (be sure to include "@yahoo.com") and click "Next."
7. Under "My incoming mail server is a..." select "POP3."
8. Type "pop.mail.yahoo.com" in the Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) Server box.
9. Type "smtp.mail.yahoo.com" in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server box.
10. Click "Next."
11. In the Account Name box, type your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
12. In the Password box, type your Yahoo! Mail password.
13. If you want Outlook Express to remember your password, check the "Remember password" box.
14. Do not check the boxes labeled "Log on using Secure..."
15. Click "Next."
16. Click "Finish."

Important: The Yahoo! Mail SMTP server now requires authentication. To turn this setting on:

1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
2. Select the "Mail" tab.
3. Double-click the account labeled "pop.mail.yahoo.com."
4. Select the "Servers" tab.
5. Check the box next to "My Server Requires Authentication."
6. Click "OK."

To control deletion of messages from the Yahoo! Mail Server:

1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
2. Select the "Mail" tab.
3. Double-click the account labeled "pop.mail.yahoo.com."
4. Select the "Advanced" tab.
5. In the Delivery section at the bottom of the window, check "Leave a copy of messages on server" if you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on the Yahoo! Mail server as well as on your local computer. Do not check this box if you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! Mail server once you have received them in Outlook Express.


If your ISP blocks port 25 or if you're unable to send email, then you will need to use port 587 when sending via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. To make this change, please follow the directions below:

1. From the "Tools" menu, select "Accounts"
2. Select your Yahoo! POP account and click on the "Properties" button
3. Click on the "Advanced" tab
4. Next to "Outgoing server (SMTP), change port 25 to 587
5. Click "Apply", then click "OK" and "Close"

I have opened an account (E-mail id ) in yahoo.com just 1 or 2 months back and i forwarded few important mails to that mail id tulasi.rahitya1308@yahoo.com and now i am getting this msg This ID is not yet...


Hi .. that message indicates that the way you typed the name in this time is not the same as when you registered the name.
do you have the confirmation message from yahoo? that would have the original screen name as you typed it the first time.

My yahoo account have been hacked i cant assess my mail, i can't reset my password i need help


hi
With the amount of dependencies constantly growing on the usage of emails it is quite difficult to imagine your email account getting hacked. Losing your personal emails, pictures, contacts, registrations details, confidential files, etc. And once a Yahoo account is hacked, the first thing that is found altered in most cases is the zip code and the password. Hackers even change you alternate email id, in order to gain complete control over the account.

If your account has been hacked, there is no point in wasting time in looking for tricks to get back the account. The amount of time you waste, is the amount of time the hacker gets to browse through the account. So, without wasting time, send in a mail to Yahoo Security department @ "account-security-help@cc.yahoo-inc.com" mentioning the details of the problem. Do mention few details like the last password, the last time you accessed the account, and all the information that you had given on the registration page(at-least some of them). You would receive a reply soon, giving you the details to follow.
