Do not worry. there is nothing wrong with your computer and/or your browser. Some Yahoo servers have problem which will be solved in a few hours (hope so). You can keep trying every 10 minutes to check if it is solved or not. But, do not change your computer or internet or browser settings, because you may make another problem on your computer. with regards guhan

I cannot open my yahoo email?

If you're having problems loading the Yahoo Mail web client, I suggest clearing your browser's cookies and cache. That will reset the logins and sessions in your browser, as well as clearing some temporarily stored files that are cached to speed up browsing. By doing that, you're going to be logged out of any websites, but it will often fix strange glitches with websites.
To clear your cookies and cache in Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, hold Ctrl and Shift and press Delete while still holding them. Choose the time range of "everything" or "all time" and only check the Cookies and Cache boxes to delete. If you're using Internet Explorer, the process is different for the version you are using. You can find details for all versions of Internet Explorer at this link:
Once your cookies and cache are cleared, try going to Yahoo Mail again and log in. It should now work.

I keep getting Error 999 when attempting to access my e-mail. I have no security issues, I've cleared history, and I'm wondering why, as I'm reading, "Yahoo has banned my IP address"

First Try This.It might help a bit if you have a corrupt Cache File:-

Clear your browser's caches and cookies. Close the mail page, click Start > Control Panel > Internet Options (or on Internet Explorer toolbar click Tools > Internet Options) and delete Cookies, Temporary Internet Files, and History. You might also click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup > and run Disk Cleanup.

How to clear your browser's cache.

How to clear your browser's cookies.

Scripting may be disabled in your Internet Explorer. This may happen due to updates. To enable scripting, follow the instructions on this HELP page (it is for Messenger, but it may help here as well):

Otherwise Contact Yahoo at:-

Yahoo! Customer Service
Yahoo Personal Email: 866-492-4664 (small fee)
Yahoo Small Business: 866-562-7219
8am - 5pm M-F (Pacific Time)

If you're using Internet Explorer 6:-
You may also need to disable RESEARCH add-on in IE6 due to recent updates:
Disable Internet Explorer 6.0 add-ons:
1. From "Tools" menu, select "Manage Add-ons"
2. Click on the "Research" add-on if present, and then click Disable.
3. Close and relaunch the Internet Explorer internet browser.

? Best quick fix >>>> Login to your Yahoo! mail via an international server... and access your mail / ya / 360 /games from there by clicking the mail icon, stay within that browser. That, is the best temp fix for the system

I keep getting error messages saying that cookies aren't enabled on my computer- I have enabled cookies and cleared the cache. What's up?

Goto tools in internet explorer and choose internet options, click on the advanced tab, scroll down to where it says "enable third party browser extensions" check the box to the side and click apply then close out of that window and try accesing the sites that give you those error messages. if still the same post back.thanks.

What is error 999 when trying to log in for mail at Yahoo

It appears that Yahoo uses your IP address to track the amount of traffic you're generating on Yahoo, and once you reach the limit you get blocked by the Unable to process request at this time -- error 999 message. Once triggered you will find that your IP address has been blocked for a period of time, somewhere between 2 and 24 hours usually.

Suggestion: Clear your browser's cookies and cache (temporary files).

Chances of working:Low. From what I can tell Yahoo isn't using cookies to remember that you've been blocked, so clearing your cookies should have no effect.

Good luck!
