Unfortunately, the user name for Yahoo is stored in the cookies for the browser-based service. It will delete the cookie when you log in to the second account. There are two ways to workaround this.

1) Set up two profiles and swap between them (these will swap the cookies as well). Look for a Profile Manager add-on for your browser (for Firefox - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=profile+manager&cat=all&lver=any&pid=1&sort=&pp=20&lup=&advanced= ).
2) Use two different browser - one setup and storing the cookies for each account. (Firefox or Google Chrome for one and Internet Explorer for the other.)

If you can download Yahoo mail in a Mail Program (Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Windows Mail), you can add both accounts and the passwords can be saved for both accounts. (I don't know if Yahoo offers POP3 or IMAP service.) I've never looked into setting up Yahoo for either one.

I wish that I could be of more help.

I cannot login to my yahoomails


If you use Yahoo! as your Web mail provider, you're not alone.
Created in 1997, Yahoo! Mail still ranks as the most popular email provider in the United States, according to data from Experian Hitwise at the time of publication.
Although much has changed since Yahoo! began providing email, the simplicity of logging in has not.

Navigate to the Yahoo! Mail homepage.
Click on the first text box, and enter your full Yahoo! ID.
You don't need to include the "@yahoo.com" portion, but you can if you want.


Enter your password in the second text box.
Your password is case-sensitive, so remember to capitalize it exactly as you did when you set up your account.

Click "Sign In" to log in to your Yahoo! Mail account.

Hotmail not receiving. Enable IMAP How?


Windows Live Mail is the desktop email application of Office Live, introduced with Windows 7. Windows Live Mail replaces Outlook Express in Windows XP and Windows Mail in Windows Vista. You can use Windows Live Mail to access most free email accounts, such as Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo Mail, as well as those offered by Internet service providers. You can also set up your IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) account to use Windows Live Mail.

Open the Office Live email application. Click "Start," select "Programs" or "All Programs" and select "Windows Live Mail" from the "Windows Live Folder." Go to the "Tools" menu and select "Accounts" to open the "Accounts" dialog box. If you do not see thetoolbar, press the "Alt" key to display it. Click the "Add" button, select "Email Account" and click "Next." Type in the complete IMAP email address, such as "name@emailprovider.com" into the "Email Address." Enter the password for that account in the "Password" box. Enter the name you want displayed to email recipients in the "Display Name" box. Select the "Manually Configure Server Settings for Email" check box and click "Next." Select "IMAP" in the "My Incoming Mail Server Is" list. Enter "imap.ispname.com" into the "Incoming Server" box, replacing "ispname" with the name of your email provider. Type "smtp.ispname.com" into the "Outgoing Server" box, replacing "ispname" with the name of your email provider. Click "Next" and then click "Finish." Hope this helps.

Good Day Janet!

The easiest way to remove your Yahoo Mail account is to go to https://edit.yahoo.com/config/delete_user.

First, you will be asked to sign in using your Yahoo I.D. and password.
Then, "Terminating your Yahoo! Account" page will appear, You have to confirm your password and type it in the box.
Next, copy the code shown and type it in the small box before pressing the "YES Terminate this Account" button.

Please remember!

You must be aware that if you delete your account, you could lose all services belonging to the Yahoo products like your Yahoo! GeoCities page, your My Yahoo! settings, your Hotjobs profile and other data in services belonging to the Yahoo!

And if you are paying for any subscription services using your Yahoo Mail account, it is better to cancel all of them before terminating your Yahoo Mail account.

Approximately, 90 days will be given to any terminated Yahoo Mail account before it is completely deleted from the Yahoo users database.

Good Luck!

Can I configure microsoft outlook 2007 to work with my yahoo e-mail if i'm connection through clearwire at home and I'm not on a network


Hi,

If you are not connected to the internet, you can only work offline, and for example, if you write an email it will not send until you do connect to the internet.

You can configure Outlook 2007 to work with Yahoo.

If you want to "POP" your Yahoo! Mail into your Outlook 2007 application, here's how:
  1. From the Tools menu, select "Account Settings." If you do not see "Account Settings," place your cursor over the two arrows at the bottom of the list to display more choices.
  2. On the Email tab, click New.
  3. Check the box next to the first option, "Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP" and click Next.
  4. In the Your Name box, type your name as you'd like it to appear when you send a message.
  5. In the Email Address box, enter your Yahoo! Mail address (for example, "user@yahoo.com").
  6. Check the box for "Manually configure server settings or additional server types" and click Next.
  7. Check the box next to the first option "Internet E-mail" and click Next.
  8. In the Server Information area, under "Account Type" select POP 3 from the pull-down menu.
  9. In the Incoming mail server field, enter: pop.mail.yahoo.com.sg
  10. In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) field, enter: smtp.mail.yahoo.com.sg
  11. In the Login Information area, in the User Name field, enter your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
  12. In the Password box, enter your Yahoo! Mail password.
  13. Check "Remember Password" if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail. Handy!
  14. Do not check the box labeled "Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)."
  15. Click on the More Settings button.
  16. Click on the Outgoing Server tab and check the box next to "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication."
  17. Click on the Advanced tab.
  18. Under "Incoming Server (POP3)", check the box next to "This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)". The port number in the "Incoming Server (POP3)" field should automatically change from 110 to 995. If it doesn't, make sure the port number is set to 995.
  19. Under "Outgoing Server (SMTP)", check the box next to "This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)". Enter port number "465" in the "Outgoing Server (SMTP)" field.
  20. If you'd like to keep a copy of your email messages on the Yahoo! Mail server, check the box next to "Leave a copy of messages on the server." If you want to delete your messages from the Yahoo! Mail server after viewing them in Outlook, don't check the box.
  21. Click the OK button.
  22. Click the Next button on the Email Account Wizard, then click Finished.
  23. Would you like your Yahoo! Mail inbox to be your primary inbox in Outlook 7? If so, click the Tools menu and select "Account Settings." If you don't see "Account Settings," place your cursor over the two arrows at the bottom of the list to display more choices.
  24. From the list, select the pop.yahoo account you've just added and click the Set as Default button.
  25. Click the Close button. You're done!
Troubleshooting instructions
If you followed the above configuration steps, you should be all set. However, if you cannot send or receive mail with your email client, try the following tips.
The Yahoo! Mail SMTP server requires authentication. Make sure you have enabled SMTP authentication. To turn this setting on, follow these steps:
  1. From the Tools menu, choose "Account Settings."
  2. Select the "E-mail" tab.
  3. Select your Yahoo! Mail account and click Change.
  4. Click on the "Outgoing Server" tab.
  5. Check the box next to "My Server Requires Authentication."
  6. Please make sure that "Log on using" is not checked.
  7. Click OK.
To control deletion of messages from the Yahoo! Mail server:
  1. From the Tools menu, select "Account Settings."
  2. Click on the "Email" tab.
  3. Select your Yahoo! Mail account and click Change.
  4. Click on the "Advanced" tab.
  5. 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. Please note that setting your email client to remove messages from the server will cause your messages to be deleted from the server. Once the messages are deleted, we are unable to retrieve them.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Close Microsoft Outlook and restart.
We strongly recommend that you enable SSL for both POP and SMTP, as detailed in the above instructions. This will ensure that your Yahoo! ID, password and email messages are transmitted securely between your mail client and the Yahoo! servers. However, if you choose to not use SSL for SMTP, your email client will likely default the SMTP port to 25. 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 "Account Settings"
  2. Select your Yahoo! POP account and click on Change.
  3. Click on the "Advanced" tab.
  4. Click OK and Close.
