Hello,

Yahoo has been upgrading the servers and ran into difficulties, many are having the same problem. There are many issues at this time. They hope to have it fixed soon, In the meantime, you can click one of these links to access your mail, it's basic, no frills, but it works. http://us.m.yahoo.com/p/mail or: http://uk.m.yahoo.com/p/mail or: http://id.m.yahoo.com/p/mail
Not a guarantee these will work at this time. But you can try
If you are using the new mail, switch to the classic mail, click Options on the mail screen, then click Switch to Classic Mail. This worked for some.
Make sure you click Keep me signed in for 2 weeks. Also it's caused by the Yahoo cookies being deleted when you close the browser. If you are using IE then go to and click Tools, click Internet options. Go to privacy and make sure the level is medium. For Firefox click Tools, then options, at privacy check the cookies options. Some anti virus/spyware may be deleting the cookies.

Take care.

Yahoo wont accept the address as being properly formated on the email message I want to send even the company I tried to send it to gave that email address in different places.yahoo says that it isn't...


A properly formatted email address has to be like this -
name@domain.com
Now it doesn't necessarily have to be a .com addresses. Could be .net or .org, just as long as it's a valid domain suffix.

What is the valid email format?


ok the valid email format is

usernsame@host.whatever

username is usually the contact name / handle for the person you are addressing the mail to.

host is the company's server that will revieve and process the mail

.whatever is the extension url

for example.

kevinnobody@someserver.com

kevinnobody is the person I wanna send the message to, he can be found @someserver and the ending url is .com

Hope that explains it.

No phone numbers dont have email addresses, A phoe number is similar to that of an ip address which can be seen to be similar to the comcept of a street address..

for example every computer on the internet has a unique ip address,

every line has a different phone number

every house has a different address,

This is what allows computer to interact withone another, or send info to one another. Just as your phone number allows you to call one another and your house address allows you to send mail to one another.

Your email address is similar to that of a mail box. Think of your email address as a virtual mail box, people can send virtual mail to you and you can send to them from it via the internet.

When you get an internet connection your isp assigns you email address (usually) if not you can get free ones from www.yahoo.com and www.msn.com

I want to send an email when a blue window pops up but dont know if my yahoo is pop3 or imap server? i also need incoming and outgoing e-mail server HELP


Incoming mail server settings

•POP server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
•Use SSL
•Port: 995

Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings

•SMTP server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
•Use SSL
•Port: 465
•Use authentication
•Account Name/Login Name: Your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com", for example, “testing80”)
•Email Address: Your Yahoo! Mail address (for example, testing80@yahoo.com)
•Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password

Troubleshooting tips

If you still can’t send Yahoo! Mail from your mail program, you may be accessing the Internet through an ISP that is blocking the SMTP port. If this is the case, try setting the SMTP port number to 587 when sending email via Yahoo!'s SMTP server.

Your email program gives you the option of either deleting your Yahoo! messages from the Yahoo! server after downloading them into your mail reader, or leaving them on the Yahoo! server so you can see them online in your Yahoo! account, too.
